GoLite: Wicklow Polo Shirt Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to the lucky winner ~ The Prickly Pinecone #71!

GoLite WICKLOW SHORT SLEEVE TRAVEL POLO – This stylish light-weight short sleeve polo instantly became my favorite shirt for travelling in warm weather. Compared to my other cotton shirts, I feel several degrees cooler while wearing this one. Highly versatile, it is nice enough to wear with slacks to business meetings and can also be worn for outdoor activities. I’ve been known to go hiking on a whim on business trips, so wearing this shirt will ensure I’m ready to take on the trails.

The shirt is made from 100% polyester, but looks like it’s made from cotton. Unlike cotton it does not retain sweat, but quickly evaporates so you do not get that “sweat spot” especially under your arms. The fit on this shirt is semi-fitted. It does not have all the extra material that many shirts seem to have, but at the same time it fits very comfortably over my torso. It helps that the material has some stretch to add to the comfort.

The Wicklow is also very functional on the trail. There are a couple of pockets with zippers; one located on the chest and another one hidden on the right side, next to the waist line. You can put valuables such as money, ID cards, or even your wedding ring for safe keeping. At 6.1 oz, this shirt will not weigh you down.

GoLite YUNNAN HIKING SHORT – My first impression was that these shorts were a bit “too fitted” since I am used to loose shorts. Once I started walking around in them, my description quickly changed to comfortable, stylish, and functional! I just cannot get over how comfortable these shorts are! I have cargo shorts made from cotton and cotton/nylon blend and they do not come close to the comfort these shorts provide.

The Yunnan Hiking Short is made from a blend of nylon and spandex, so it has a bit of a stretch to it. This helps keeps you comfortable for long hikes on the trail in comparison to other shorts that do not stretch. Functionally, it has 4 pockets for you to keep items in and two of them have zippers for valuables. Just by looking at the stitching, the quality is impressive. I know I’ll be enjoying wearing these shorts for many more hikes to come! At 7.9 oz, I’ll be able to pack light so I can GoLite!

Bottom Line: If you like functional clothing that also looks good, the GoLite Wicklow Short Sleeve Travel Polo Shirt and the GoLite Yunnan Hiking Short are a must have. They will keep you cool when the temperature gauge goes north and will also be functional once you hit the trails for those hikes you decide to take on a whim.
