Active Pursuit vs. Sahara T-shirt

Hi - I was just wondering what the differences are between these two shirts other than colors. Is one better fit for hiking/backpacking? Thanks!

Hi @graybrianthomas - Thanks for reaching out!

While both the Active Pursuit and Sahara t-shirts will function well during long, active days outside, the Sahara's design leans a bit more towards backpacking. It's fabric composition was designed to dry quickly after campsite washes on multi-day trips and it has an antimicrobial treatment helping to keep odors away for longer.

The Active Pursuit series is designed with single-day fitness activities in mind, shown in the reflective tape on the collar for visibility. 

We don't think you can go wrong with either of these for a comfortable t-shirt for out on the trails, but those small details do highlight their differences. Hopefully this helps!
