Want to know one thing about east Tennessee in July and August? It’s H-O-T. Since we’re surrounded by mountains instead of a nice sandy beach, there’s really no breeze or relief from that heat beating down either. Of course, that doesn’t deter us from going outside, we just have to get creative on how we keep cool in the sun!
This Summer, I’ve been using special clothing to keep cool – a long sleeve to be exact. Now that goes against some common sense, but it’s true! The Women’s Long Sleeve Performance Crew Neck from Montauk Tackle Company has definitely be keeping me cool in the sun.
Montauk Tackle Company sent me their Women’s Long Sleeve Performance Crew Neck Shirt to facilitate this review and let me tell you – I’ve been living in it! It’s lightweight and completely breathable. Although it’s long sleeve, it’s keeping me cool in the warm temperatures outdoors.
Fashion follows function, and function starts with technology built into each garment that protects its wearer from the elements of nature, so they can enjoy those moments of nature that connect to their soul, longer and more often. We donate our time, services and at least 1% of our sales to grassroots environmental groups.
We also work relentlessly to reduce environmental harms in everything we do. We use recycled polyester in our clothing when we can. Our love for the great outdoors is tightly followed by our love for our country, which is why being made in the U.S.A. is part of our DNA.
As a Melanoma survivor, sun protection is super important to me so I’ve been wearing the Performance Crew outside when I’m playing with the girls or working in our backyard container garden.
I opted for a size Medium in the Long Sleeve Performance Crew and really like the fit. I didn’t want something super tight and was perfectly happy with the length. The Crew Neck comes in 3 colors: White, Pink, and the color I chose – Fishers Island Aqua. I am totally in love with this color for the Summer!
The Long Sleeve Women’s Crew Neck Performance Shirt retails for $59, but don’t think that’s all that Montauk Tackle Company offers. They have a wide variety of clothing products for Men, Women, and Children. Check out Montauk Tackle Company to see the diverse line of performance clothing.
