Editor's Pros & Cons




Adjustable Sleeves



Not As Rugged As Competitors

Not Waterproof


95% of the material used in the construction of this hiking shirt is a form of nylon called Chinlon. It is named Chinlon because it originated in China. The fibers of this material are finer, creating a more smooth feel. You can enjoy the feeling of velvet with the functionality of nylon.

Chinlon is, however, less durable than other fibers. That is why the Nonwe Men’s Hiking Shirt is blended with spandex. Chinlon is also more prone to crinkling. Once the crinkling happens, it’s nearly impossible to reverse it. Try to hang it up when not in use (instead of folding) and don’t dry in the machine.


Chinlon isn’t the most durable material available on the market, therefore it has been blended with 5% spandex. This way, you’ll be able to enjoy all of the luxury features of the Chinlon with the durability and flexibility offered by spandex material.

Spandex will make this shirt able to stretch more while enabling it to retain its original shape, wash after wash. Spandex is used in a lot of active/outdoors clothing. If you’re going to be outdoors, you could use this convenient storage belt that has spandex in it as well.

Spandex (also known as Lycra) is a fabric that is man-made. It has the ability to stretch up to 600% of its original size. Your range of motion will increase when clothing is made with spandex.

This shirt will stretch with you, and bounce back into place when you’re done. Spandex can also pitch in on the efforts to wick moisture, provide breathability, and dry quickly. You can rest assured that when an item includes spandex, it will be more durable; allowing it to have a longer lifespan.

If you’re an outdoorsman you are most likely interested in having as little accessories as possible. If you’re going to be walking long distances you don’t want to be weighed down. That’s where the convenience of having a hiking shirt with the option of short or long-sleeves comes in handy.

If you need protection from pesky mosquitoes, roll your sleeves down. If you’re hot or need to put some elbow grease into a job, roll them up (securing them with a tab and button). If you need protection from wind, the sun, or poison ivy, roll them back down.

Because this hiking shirt is made with such soft material, it’s easily transformed into a more professional/formal appearance by rolling the sleeves down. If you need to make a quick transition into formalwear, you can keep these shoes handy.

No matter where you go, you can take this shirt along with you. Even travelers rave about the convenience of having just one shirt that you can roll the sleeves up or down; instead of having to fuss with extra layers.


The Nonwe Men’s Hiking Shirt is made with a simplistic design so that it can be more versatile and sleek. It is lightweight and soft, making it less suitable for extremely rugged hikes or construction jobs. If it suits your needs though, you’ll love that it features just two simple velcro pockets, one on each breast.

These pockets are especially handy to keep pens, cigarettes, credit cards, cash, IDs, keys, etc. in. You can even hang your sunglasses on them for quick, easy access. If you’re allergic to bees and get stung while you’re fishing, you’ll appreciate the fact that you can have an Epipen conveniently stored right on your chest.

Moisture Control

It doesn’t matter if you’re hiking, working, walking, dining, or lounging; whatever you’re doing, you need a shirt that can help control moisture. It’s important to be able to stay cool in the summer and dry in the winter. Although this hiking shirt is designed for summer, it can help keep you dry in the winter. You’ll just have to layer something else over top of it.

Controlling the moisture inside of your shirt will protect your skin from irritation and your nose from odors caused by bacteria that are attracted to sweat. If your shirt is left soaked with sweat, the bacteria will flock to you, feed on it, and drop acid before they leave. It is this acid waste that produces body odor.

The Chinlon material is lightweight, breathable, moisture-wicking, and quick-drying. The back of the shirt even helps to control moisture with a mesh panel to enhance airflow.

The nylon material used in the shell of this hiking shirt is breathable, lightweight, and quick-drying. And the back of the shirt features a mesh panel for extra air circulation and moisture control. Thanks to these properties, this shirt is more efficient at regulating your body temperature. In colder weather, you’ll stay drier. In warmer weather, your sweat will evaporate quicker.

One of the most appreciated benefits of having breathable clothes is that they tend to have less of an odor, even after washing. Some materials can’t get rid of the odors, but nylon and polyester mesh don’t hold onto it. Because you’ll be kept cooler and drier, you’ll be able to avoid odors that are caused by bacteria that are attracted to your sweat. Add an outdoor jacket that’s also breathable for more coverage and protection.
