Short Sleeve Sun Shirts

Rayward Short Sleeve Sun T-Shirts

A quality short sleeve sun t-shirt is an extremely valuable part of any adventurer’s wardrobe. While a short sleeve shirt doesn’t provide as much coverage as its long sleeved counterpart, it’s still important to ensure your torso is being protected with a UPF certified fabric. However, we understand that not everyone wants to wear long sleeves 24-7, which is why we make all of our collections in a variety of styles, including a short sleeve sun t-shirt variation.

Lightweight And Comfortable Sun T-Shirts

Whether you are looking for a beach shirt, fitness shirt, or any other shirt for long days in the sun – we have you covered! While a short sleeve t-shirt will have a little less overall coverage than a long sleeve shirt, the construction and UPF level is the same. So while we always recommend a long sleeve shirt when outdoors, if you decide to go with a short sleeve option please make sure you have enough sunscreen to cover your arms in addition to your face, neck, and any other exposed areas.

When looking for beach t-shirts, a super lightweight polyester shirt is going to be your best friend. For that, we would recommend taking a closer look at our Shoreline Collection. However, if you are looking for a more casual shirt and care more about comfort than lightweight performance, take a closer look at our Crescent City Collection. These sun t-shirts utilize a bamboo and cotton blend to make some of the most comfortable shirts imaginable. More information on both collections below.

The Shoreline Collection is our go-to sun t-shirt for maximum comfort in the heat. Thanks to its UPF 50+ certified protection level combined with it’s ultra lightweight polyester design, you can stay protected without sacrificing comfort. Because it’s short sleeved and a relaxed fit, we wouldn’t consider it to be a rash guard shirt. However, it still provides many of the same benefits of a rash guard: It’s moisture wicking, dries extremely fast, and it’s breathable making it perfect for any outdoor adventure. This shirt is also great for any outdoor exercise, especially in the heat. This short sleeve sun t-shirt will quickly replace any beach shirts in your wardrobe and become your go-to for any hot summer days – regardless of the activity.

The Shoreline Collection, Scarlet Red Color
Men's Blue Short Sleeve Sun T-Shirt
The Crescent City Collection, Icy Blue Color

Named after our hometown and headquarters in New Orleans, the Crescent City collection is more of an ‘everyday’ sun t-shirt. Its tri-blend fabric of bamboo, cotton, and spandex makes for an unbelievably soft and comfortable shirt – one you’d want to wear everyday. It’s certified at UPF 45, providing an excellent level of UV protection. Although not quite as lightweight as the Shoreline Collection, it’s still very comfortable in the heat and can be utilized as a beach t-shirt or thrown on before your next big fishing trip to stay comfortable and protected.
