Astroman Short-Sleeve Sun Shirt

The Outdoor Research Men's Astroman Shirt uses a lightweight nylon and spandex fabric for optimized climbing comfort. This button-down shirt wicks moisture, withstands abuse, and easily stretches when you're climbing all day. A fold-up collar blocks sun rays from cooking your exposed neck, and the shirt's UPF 50 + rating ensures upper-body sun protection.

  • Shirt that keeps you cool and comfortable during exposed activities
  • Nylon stretch fabric is lightweight and moisture wicking
  • Chest pocket keeps your important belongings nearby
  • UPF 50 rating and fold up collar help keep you covered from the sun

Light as silk...

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: XL

I’ll have to see how it holds up over time, but this shirt is an instant hit. Perfect fit and functionality, super light and stylish. UPF FIDDY so no burn. Almost feels like no shirt at all! Snaps and chest pocket FTW.

After practically living in the long sleeve version of this shirt and buying 2 for my grandpa, I figured it was time to try the short sleeve version.

In the month I've had this shirt I've taken it to 3 states, many hikes, many climbs, and a fishing trip. Why do I love it?
The nylon/spandex construction brings unparalleled comfort and stretch. It's super-stretchy without sacrificing anything in the style department. I didn't know I needed such a comfortable and practical button down until now. Heck, look at that handsome man in the picture below. I'm not too bad looking myself but that picture is ~90% glow from the astroman.

The UPF 50+ protection has been a lifesaver for more than a few desert adventures. That feature can't be emphasized enough. Some sacrifice comfort for sun protection or vice versa but the astroman provides the best of both worlds. I've only used the full collar snap up once on a very sunny day fishing but it's a nice feature to have when you need up.


How do you know if this shirt is for you? Do you like comfortable clothes? Do you like something with all the benefits of activewear without looking super active? Are you a human on this planet? As far as I'm concerned, this belongs in everyone's closet.

Note on size - I'm typically a medium but I'm a small in these shirts. I think I could get away with either a small or medium though.

Nice fit

Relaxed fit, comfy, and good style

Astro....yeah!

These are great shirts, whether the button down or the polo. Snaps not buttons are great....cleaner look with nothing to snag and more durable than buttons. Super stretchy, which is not always desirable and I would not want every collared shirt I have to be this stretchy, but it works for this piece which you could literally rock climb in it it's so stretchy. Fabric is very light for warm/hot weather use. I really dig these shirts and personally have 2 of them.

Boyfriend Lives In It

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: M

I got this for my boyfriend after he raved about the long sleeved version he bought for trail crew.

He has two of the long sleeved models that he wears daily, doing things such as brush cutting and tearing down trees for trail crew maintenance. He works long hours in direct sunlight, and says this shirt is a life saver! The UPF rating helps repel sunlight, and the material of the shirt is durable as well as breathable.

We were going to a wedding in Myrtle Beach, SC, and he wanted some more casual shirts. I got the Astroman for him because of its diverse look along with its functional qualities. Boyfriend was stoked! His favorite feature is definitely the snap buttons.

I highly recommend this shirt for casual or active use.

Ultra Versatile Shirt

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

Almost all of the guys in the office have this shirt, so I got one for my husband because I knew it must be awesome. As soon as he put it on he said " Yep, that's my new favorite shirt ever!" It is super light and breathable plus it has stretch and 50 UPF. Even better, it looks fantastic on. The fit is true to size and slightly fitted. He is 5'9" and 175 lb with broad shoulders and a 33" waist and he got a medium. He loves how the fabric feels so light, cooling, and stretchy. He gets compliments all the time on it! He'll definitely be adding the long sleeve version soon and more short sleeved ones next spring.

This shirt is meant for climbing but can also be used for hiking, fishing, or really any outdoor shirt, yet it looks good enough to wear in the office. I definitely recommend this one!

Favorite Shirt

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

These are my favorite shirts for work, play, BBQ'ing in the back yard, fishing, or just about anything that calls for more than a t-shirt(and even if it doesn't). Bottom line, these shirts are awesome. I've worn them in deserts, through a section hike of the AT, to travel in comfort in airports around the globe, and as an everyday go-to for work. Quick drying, light, airy, fairly wrinkle resistant, and stretchy. I now own 4 of these shirts with more to come.

Favorite shirt

Perfect fit at 6,4 195 a XL fits with a nice slightly lose fit. Materials feel nice , very breathable and the colors are rich. I would definitely buy another one.

Best Shirt EVER!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

This along with the long sleeve are my favorite shirts of all time. It is silky smooth to the touch, stretchy as can be and wicks moisture very well. The snap up neck is a great touch for days on the trail and climbing. I wish i could fill my closet with every color and wear one every single day.

light and professional

great for those climbing/hiking dates or for the outdoor professional.comfortable to sweat in and airy for great temperature control.

So sweet you will want more than one!

I picked this up early in the summer in the red and loved it so much that I had to buy it in more colors. I now have this in 5 colors! It is light weight, durable, and looks great! Love the snap buttons and even has one at the end of the collar which has been nice to flip up on hot days to keep the sun off my neck or if the bugs are bad and I want to over up a bit more.

great shirt!

I now own three of these, one L/S and two S/S and don’t have even the tiniest bit of constructive criticism. I never thought I’d climb in a “button down” until these came out and I love them. They’re super comfortable and make you feel as cool as possible when it’s hot out. I’m 5’11” and 175 lbs and the larges are a light airy fit for me. Lots of color choices, pick one and enjoy!

New sizing is very different from older

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Size Bought: Large

I have one of these from maybe two years ago and love it. This new one is cut at least two inches shorter than the older version. It's too short, especially for climbing and wearing under a harness. Returning it.

Love the fabric!

The Astroman was love at first touch: Soft-silky-like, stretchy and light-weight! It was eyes-burning-with-sweat-hot out the other day cragging and this shirt wicked moisture, stayed dry and didn't stink. At the bistro later that night dinner would've been covered had I charged a quarter to each person who fondled my shirt.
I'm 5' 9", 167 and have a 40" chest - I find the large fits me perfect (airing on the roomy side) for casual wear and rock climbing.
I have had zero issues with durability; no problems with the snaps and the fabric is still like new after many washings and countless hours of wear.

Great outdoor work shirt

I've used this all summer working in the heat on construction sites. This shirt breaths well, and is super light. It looks professional, but feels like a baselayer!

Brightens my days!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: XL

I purchased this because I like snap buttons and wanted to add some color to my wardrobe. When I received it I was pleasantly surprised at the material. Light and good stretch to it! Put it on and boy it fit great.
