OK- let’s start with the premise that the sun might actually shine some time in the coming months. If it does and if you’re out all day walking or climbing the chances are that you will want to consider some protection against the sun’s rays. If you’re keen to cover up, a long sleeved shirt is a good option but a classic button down style may not offer the features and fit you need to complement the rest of your outdoor clothing. Which is where the Rab® Boreas (men’s) and Aurora (women’s) comes in.

The Boreas Pull-on has been designed to offer fantastic sun protection (SPF 50+) when climbing or travelling in mountainous areas. The fabric does also offer some wind resistance but this does not compromise breathability and makes the Boreas a fantastic mid layer for both warm and cold conditions….perfect for those long summer days at the crag with the temperature in the high 30's . . .
