The Aurora Borealis also known as the Northern Lights are natural light displays in the sky, usually observed at night and named after the Roman goddess of dawn, Aurora, and the Greek name for north wind, Boreas. They illuminate the northern horizon as a greenish glow or sometimes a faint red, as if the sun were rising from an unusual direction. The Aurora Borealis most often occurs near the equinoxes.
Inspired by the beauty of the Aurora Borealis, Solar System created the Aurora shirt that provides Solar/X™ UPF 40+ broad spectrum sun protection, permanently. It never loses its ability to block the sun, helping to prevent skin cancer and advanced aging. The eco-friendly recycled polyester and organic cotton is ultra-soft, quick-dry and anti-microbial, finally making sun protection cool, comfortable and odor-resistant. Flat-lock seam stitching reduces chafing and eliminates pressure points when wearing a pack. Reinforced shoulder detail enhances comfort under pack straps. The Aurora shirt allows you to enjoy life in the sun without a side order of guilt.
