Outlier — the brand known for its functional-yet-stylish garments and accessories – has been tinkering with new ways to keep cool this summer. Part of its range of Ultralight Experimental Editions, the UV Poncho is an exercise in “minimizing skin contact while maximizing sun protection” — a design born out of realization that the brand’s Ultralight fabric has a UPF 50+ rating and that short-sleeved ponchos are much easier to wear than their traditionally-unwieldly counterparts. Outlier’s version is made from Ultralight Doubleweave — a fabric known for its soft, supple feel and toughness for its weight — and treated with “self-cleaning” Nanosphere, which means you no longer have to worry about pesky stains and spills from beach picnics or campfires. The poncho’s four-way stretch, meanwhile, ensures that the garment moves as you do, providing breezy hours of wear all summer long. Look for Outlier’s UV Poncho now at the brand’s website.
