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.

The rubber buttons are way too hard to to button!

Extremely durable, lightweight, breathable, and allows for full range mobility in a hot, difficult work environment. I have three, and they are without question the best work shirts I own.

The combination of performance and jersey cotton materials makes this shirt a top competitor in the market. I use this shirt for all my adventures. It's comfort, protection, performance, and features are hard to beat. I am young, and just out of college, but this piece has the fit and cut to flatter anyone, in any age group. Try and you'll love it.
REPLY FROM KÜHL®: Well said! Thank you.

I just turned 67, and having been an outdoorsman all my life, the inevitable first diagnosis of skin cancer has come. It's all treatable, but I really needed to focus on protecting my arms from the sun. An internet search led me to Kuhl, and my first order for the new Airspeed. I live in Texas, so I was dreading having to wear long sleeves during our brutal summers. I was surprised to learn that these shirts are very comfortable in 95 plus degree heat. I also noticed that a lite sweat does not render them unwearable for another day or two. With cotton, one sweaty afternoon sent my shirts to the laundry. They are the most comfortable shirts I've owned, and the built in UV protection makes them a double bonus. My wife loves them, and my son, a mountaineer in Colorado, also commented on their look. I now own five different colors. I'm looking forward to this winter, and wearing them with a tee shirt.
REPLY FROM KÜHL®: Thank you for the excellent details in your review. Yes, skin cancer is part of our design considerations here at KUHL and we take it seriously. Good luck to you in monitoring your skin for the small, irregular, multicolored spots that grow to be larger then a pencil eraser in diameter...and many years of pleasure wearing the Airspeed!

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
