We're sorry, but certain colors/sizes are sold out and are no longer available.

As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

SunShield Short Sleeve Shirt by SmartPak is rated 4.634146341463414 out of 5 by 41.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOOOOOOOVE this shirt!!!! One of my best purchases ever! If you can't tolerate the heat, this shirt is for you. For whatever reason, as I've aged, I do very poorly in extreme heat. This shirt is like wearing nothing! I've worn them in lessons, and for schooling at HITS. While everyone else was soaking in sweat, I was dry as a bone. I only wish they came in more colors! I have washed them (in cool water with Woolite) numerous times and they come out beautifully. As far as drying them, just hang them up and they'll be dry in an hour, or less!! If you have trouble with the heat, I highly recommend this shirt!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this shirt I rode in the nearly 100% humidity through a tough lesson yesterday and this thing was dry within minutes of me getting out of the tack. It was a relief to sit in my car on the drive home and not have that yucky feeling of a sweat-soaked cotton t-shirt still clinging to me. In addition I put away all 4 jumps: probably 16 poles, 8 standards, all of it dirty and not exactly smooth. Then I cleaned up the slobbering, sweaty horse and put him through his chiro exercises. The shirt got plenty dirty with all that use but it looks to have all come out in one wash and not a single pull in the fabric. I cannot bring myself to buy the pink (chestnut horse and apparently I'm a snob about pink on a chestnut horse) or white (white, to a barn?! I don't care how easy clean it is. I cannot spend my cool out time side eyeing the green slobber on my white shirt) so I reallllly hope Smartpak extends this line to at least the same color palette as the long sleeve. In the mean time I'm trying to convince myself I didn't need two in the same color, even if it is my color!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Too Clingy, but otherwise nice. There is a lot to like about this shirt. The fabric is smooth, and non-irritating underarm and at the collar. The sleeves are generous enough that those of us with large arms don't have to suffer with tight binding fabric. I like how there is no seam at the outer shoulder point. This allows those of without wide shoulders to have a more flattering fit, without that droopy feeling. The style and details of the shirt are quite nice, but I found it to be a little more clingy than I would normally wear. I was going to return it, because at this price point I don't want to wear a shirt that I feel I have to keep tugging to make it lie flat in front. Unfortunately I tried it on and also tried on some tall field boots, which made a black mark on the shirt and so I didn't feel it would be ethical to return it with a mark. I will keep it to wear under sweatshirts, because it is very comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy and cute This is a great lesson shirt. I've worn it a few times now and it keeps me cool and not-sweaty. The navy side panels are very flattering as well. I'm 5'4" and a size 6 with 34DD chest and I got a small.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cool and comfortable I used this shirt during our recent 105 degree heatwave, and it was more comfortable than any other shirt I own. Attractive too! I will buy more of these for the hot days of summer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely Shirt! I just received this shirt, and I love it so much! It is nice because it is not see through, super cute, and tucks in really well. It also is very true to size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great look! Good features! Living in sunny California has its perks. But, as riders we must be aware of the dangers of too much sun exposure. I've purchased the long sleeve version of this shirt and I just purchased the short sleeve. The short sleeve is nice for evening riding or some day riding if you make sure to put sunscreen on your arms - which is much easier than trying to put it all over your back if you decided to wear a tank top.Shirt stays cool and wips away moisture. Even when you take out of the wash all of the other clothes are wet but not this shirt, it's nearly dry.My only recommendation to smartpacks is to get this shirt available in more colors. Love turquoise and purple!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice shirt I've been investing in sun shirts over the last year and needed to bulk up my short-sleeve collection (for long sleeve, the Kastel Denmark shirts are the best I have found.... Please carry these, SmartPak!!!) Anyway, I finally decided to try this one. I've been a fan of the Kerrits Ventilator and IceFill shirts for a while now, but wanted some different options and found this on sale. I wear a small (street size 4-6) and this fit true to size. I got the blue and later came back for the pink. They are nicely constructed and the fabric feels nice. The fabric is heavier than the Kerrits fabric, but since they are a little more form fitting and structures, they hang better than the Ventilators. I would buy again if there were more colors. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than sunscreen! I have 2 of the long sleeve shirts but wanted something for the very humid hot days that would keep most of me covered (chest and neck at least!). It is stylish and comfortable, well made, washes well. This will be great for the days that I am not outside full time - having some shade protection but at least I don't have to wear the sunscreen on my neck and chest. I love that it covers the back of my neck as well as the front. The zip-up is very comfortable. Next time they are on sale I will get more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from love the fit I have (2) different colors ... the fit is extremely flattering - and honestly can easily be worn for casual and play. Even the white with blue has garnered significant dirt and washed clean again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality! I bought this on a whim because I needed a good shirt for riding during the summer that would keep me cool. This shirt is awesome!! I love everything about it! Only thing, I wish it came in more colors...otherwise it's great!! Fits great, washes well, looks awesome!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In love Wish there were more color options. Will definitely be buying again. Fits great and stays feeling cool to the skin. Have used as a layering piece on cool mornings. The navy has a gorgeous slimming look

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Looks and fits great zipped or unzipped & will be a great summer show shirt as well as for schooling, would definitely recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shirt! I absolutely love this shirt! It is super comfortable, looks attractive, keeps your body cool in the heat and also dries really fast when it gets sweaty or wet. I have a very long torso too, and this shirt fits me lengthwise very well which is very hard to find! I love the zip up front, which would make this shirt wearable under a show coat too. I just wish that SmartPak would offer some other colors, preferably dark colors like black and navy. The white is very pretty, but I really can't wear white.... After wearing it for a day at the barn, it turns brown! I'm not a neat person. :)SmartPak, please offer some darker colors and I will buy them all!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Great fit without being clingy. The shirt is long enough to tuck in but also looks okay outside your breeches.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great shirt! Bought the white/blue one and enjoyed it so much, that I ordered another color. Comfy and washes up nicely. Wait for a sale or discount so you don't have to pay full price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shirt! For someone who rides all day long in Florida this shirt is very worth it. Fabric is extremely pleasant, cool non clingy and the fit is still attractive. Runs true to size as well. Only negative wish there was more color options. Because I would wear a different color everyday.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice shirt! I love the look and feel of this shirt! The color is great. It's very warm though - could stand to be made of a more breathable fabric.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Overpriced Am I the only one who feels like once a product is marketed to the equestrians, its price doubles?This shirt is not worth $59. It's a simple light weight quarter zip polo. But your clothes already protect you from UV rays -- that's where those sunburn lines come from. So what's with the price tag?
