This page is provided for reference to historical product information.

The REI Lightweight Polartec® Power Dry® Zip-T for men can be worn alone or used as a performance insulation layer.

  • Polartec Power Dry uses 2 different yarns on either side of the fabric to enhance comfort: interior yarn wicks moisture, and exterior yarn dries quickly
  • The combination of the 2 yarns helps keep you dry during highly aerobic activities because it moves moisture away from skin faster than single-component fabrics such as cotton
  • Updated fabric protects skin against harmful ultraviolet light with a UPF rating of 20 and is very soft to the touch
  • Deep center front zipper allows ventilation control; features an inner draft flap and locking zipper head
  • Flatseam construction is soft and non-chafing next to skin; seams are designed to work with pack straps at shoulders
  • Underarm and side gussets promote freedom of motion
  • Dropped back hem stays tucked in
  • The REI Lightweight Polartec Power Dry Zip-T for men features a next-to-skin fit that hugs the body and boosts fabric performance

Made in USA.

REI Lightweight Polartec Power Dry Zip-T - Men'sis rated4.6667out of5by3.
Rated5out of5byfromGreat Shirt: Versatile and ComfortableThis is a great shirt, especially for the price. I own both the blue and the black I like it so much! I recently wore it as a base layer while at 10,000 ft. Excellent. I regularly wear it as a top layer for rock climbing or just going to the gym. I have also found that the black one dresses up pretty nicely with a collared shirt underneath, a pair of designer jeans, and dress shoes. The REI logo is really discrete. Excellent seattle business wear.

Rated5out of5byfromexceptional valuegot these as cheap long underwear to wear while working in a farmer's market: a base layer that would not absorb moisture. they work well. they are not "thermals" of the waffle knit cotton variety but do well to add a bit of warmth. i also wear them to the gym: they are exceptional at moving but not retaining moisture. the sleeves have just enough stretch to comfortably roll up to the elbows. the neck is the best-fitting, smartest design i've worn. cannot yet attest to durability over time. excellent long-underwear for the price.

Rated4out of5byfromneet more colorsThis is a great, light weight shirt. I have cotten concerned about sun exposure and this shirt includes a UPF rating which is a bonus. The shirt fits maybe a little tight, but I think that's the design. This was my favorite shirt during a week in Haiti when it was hot and humid all the time. I like that it has a higher collar than a standard t-shirt or henley. I just wish they had more colors. I'd like some kind of green, maroon, gray, tan. I though about dying the white, but dying polyesther is very difficult. The only issue may be the fabric may be a bit scratchy for some. After a few washings it's fine.
