Customer Reviews

Based on 5 reviews

A strong shirt for protecting your skin when doing whatever you do. This is a great shirt for outdoors activity. I have not had a chance to wear it in the winter yet, but I reckon it will keep me warm however, I have worn it on nearly 40 degrees days and I did not overheat when working outside in our outback sun. I think these types of shirts may keep you cool if you wet them while outside on 40 plus days. They may be the cheapest air conditioner on the market.

A very good shirt

My Southern Cross shirt arrived today, looks to be excellent quality, although not such heavy gauge material as my last Kakadu shirt which is still going strong, so I will have to wait and see how this one stands up to use.

Très bien
