Sherpa Adventure Gear says:
The Manang Short Sleeve Shirt features a dobby pattern, inspired by Bhutanese textiles. The blend of materials features cotton and wool which helps to wick moisture away, keeping you dry whilst also being soft and comfortable to wear. It has a UPF rating of 40 meaning that it is perfect for spending long amounts of time in direct sunlight, ensuring your skin stays safe from the sun.
Manang is a town in the Manang District of Nepal. Most groups trekking around the Annapurna range will take resting days in the area to acclimatize to the high altitude, before taking on the Thorong La pass.
Sherpa's Manang Short Sleeve Shirt blends the natural wicking capabilities of wool and polyester, which pulls moisture away from the body to dry quickly on the surface, and cotton, which feels cool and soft against the body.
The unique dobby pattern, inspired by Bhutanese textiles, gives this every day plaid a hint of Himalayan aesthetic. As the chest pocket is made from the same fabric and pattern it blends in nicely on the shirt and can be used for storing small essentials such as keys or cash.
The shirt's collar can be lifted to protect the back of your neck when the sun is intense, and with a UPF rating of 40, you're protected every step of the way.
