THE SILVER LINING MAKES THIS SHIRT

I do not know why this did not occur to me before, but earlier this year Elaine Lembo, the Editor of Cruising World wrote a bang up article about Latitude 15 shirts.  I will let you read the article yourself which is posted below.   We are going to be back in Newport International Boat Show on Sept. 10 through 14, 2008 at Booth B-16.  We are very fortunate of having as our guest, our Chief Designer, Eileen Saavedra whose image you have seen previously wearing one of our Latitude15 hats which she designed.  We thought it would be good for people who sail and cruise extensively to meet with Eileen and to discuss with her their preferences and ideas with regard to long haul cruising where fresh feeling and smelling clothing is a luxury indeed.

ALPACA-1
A patented, intimate blend of synthetic and natural fibers that accelerates the water release rate of wet fabric. It is set apart from other moisture management products because of its faster drying time, the aesthetics imparted by its natural fiber component and its permanently built-in odor eliminator, FreshGuard®.

We've chosen Dri-release for the inside of the shirt because of its multiple comfort and protection features - features that appeal to the extreme sports aficionados targeted by Latitude 15 including skiers, trekkers, climbers, sky jumpers, big game hunters and the like that often find themselves among the elements for hours or days at a time.

"I was so glad to have my Latitude15 shirt with me. It turned out to be the favorite piece of clothing I had with me and so I ended up wearing it for the most of the trip. The level of comfort it provides in an extreme outdoor environment is amazing and its ability to keep your body "climate controlled" is absolutely unmatched by other materials like fleece or cotton. I can only say: Don't leave home without it!"
