Merrell Vintage Parks Tee Collection Review
Growing up, I was very fortunate in that my parents were able to take me and my siblings on vacation during the summer months. It was more common for us to visit the national parks versus theme parks and I am very thankful for that. I think back to my childhood and I still remember seeing Old Faithful going as high as the sky could reach. I still remember seeing bears, moose, elk, deer, and dozens of other animals while visiting the national parks. So when I saw that Merrell came out with a line of tee shirts in association with the national parks, it put a smile to my face. The parks featured on the tee shirts include; Yellowstone, Sequoia, Shenandoah, Yosemite, and Crater Lake. The fabric on the shirts is made out of 100% organic cotton and has a UPF 20 rating.
These days, UPF rating in clothing is very important to me. Over the many years of being exposed to the sun, I developed a spot on my skin with Melenoma. I was lucky in that I caught it early and I had it safely removed, but these days if I am going to be out in the sun for any prolonged period of time, I always look for clothing with additional UPF protection. With sizing changing from brand to brand and year to year, I always try to inform readers on sizing. That said, I am 6’0 tall and 175lbs and a size large fits me well. Not too baggy, not to small.
