The KÜHL AIRSPEED™ LS Shirt is a game changer. Hot sun, high humidity, and stifling air are no match for KÜHL's collection of AIRSPEED™ shirts with AirVolution™ fabric. AirVolution™ is a woven, technical nylon/poly blend that blocks the sun's harmful UV rays, wicks moisture and dries quickly. It feels like cotton against the skin but boasts all the performance of polyester.
The AIRSPEED LS™ features a button-down collar, button front, adjustable cuff and 2 button-down chest pockets. A zippered security pocket is hidden inside the shirt at the chest, and a built-in custom sunglass cleaner is sewn inside the bottom left placket.

Knit panels on the back and front sleeve allow greater freedom of movement. High-tech mesh panels are strategically placed to provide cool comfort and ultimate range of motion. Strategically placed KONCEALER™ mesh panels increase airflow and comfort with a mesh so fine it can't be easily detected by the casual glance.
Kühl’s exclusive articulated 5-panel sleeves provide freedom of movement and can be rolled up and secured with the Safari Straps™ to the button tab.

I own just about every long sleeve hiking shirt made, including three of these. These are truly my favorite to wear, have taken everything I’ve thrown at them and still look great. The design in flawless. Now - I have two requests: please get rid of the “rubber” buttons. They are horrible to button. Also, please consider different color schemes. The solid color is fine, but a plaid or something would be much appreciated.

I own every color Airspeed. Hope you’ll add a new color soon. Burnt orange would be a good fit for this Kuhl shirt.

I bought this shirt on a whim before my Thru-Hike of the PCT in 2016. I wore it almost everyday on the trail and slept in it most nights too. Wonderfully comfortable in the heat and quick-drying in the cold rain. Around Mile 2,300 one of the pocket zippers ceased to close the pocket but by that point the shirt had already served above and beyond my expectations. There was seldom a day that I wouldn't wear that shirt. Now it is retired and perminantly stained from what I put it through, but I keep it around just to remind me of the time we spent together. This Shirt is the absolute best.
REPLY FROM KÜHL®: Nice work on the PT! Thanks for coming back and sharing your review with KUHL.

Great shirt for hot weather, specially under the sun.
great but for the buttons
I purchased this shirt for use outdoors in a warm climate. The reviews I read were true all across as this shirt is fantastic. Extremely comfortable and fits well. I am 6'2", 165lbs, and the Medium works great on my frame. I'll be looking for another one when stock comes in.
Great styling but runs small. I have to purchase an XXL.
New favorite shirt - I'm - 46 long and the XL fit great! - rarity in the outdoor clothing world - besides the fit, the build is awesome
