The Alpenglow Tee features our BD.cool mineral based in-fiber cooling technology, which reflects 71% of near-infrared rays and reduces wearer’s temperature, making it a crucial layer for the high alpine sun. While UPF 50+ protection blocks out harsh rays at high elevations, Polygiene Odor Control keeps odor at bay. Underarm gussets add mobility for moving in the mountains.
