Designs for equestrian quarter shirts include features like lightweight fabrics, whether you’re riding in hot weather or cold, riding requires movement and bulky layers are not only uncomfortable, but also prohibit movement. Moisture-wicking and breathable fabrics help to regulate your body temperature, helping to keep you cool in warm weather and warm in cold weather. Fabrics that are breathable also help to keep you from overheating due to sweat. Sun protection is another important factor to consider; many modern performance shirts now include UV protection, providing extra protection against the sun’s harsh rays without requiring the use of extra sun block. Sun protection is important for both Summer and Winter as although the Winter sun is weaker, snow reflects and can enhance the power without a rider’s notice. Of course for cold weather, insulation is an important factor to consider and many riders choose to layer shirts; often a long sleeved quarter shirt used a single layer in the Summer can be a good choice for a base layer during the Winter.

Quarter zip shirts are suitable for wear in a variety of climates depending on the type of fabric that is used in their construction. Modern, performance fabrics create the base of design for these shirts; fabrics used include both natural and synthetic fabrics for comfort. Polyester and nylon synthetic fabric bases are extremely popular, and in fact most trademarked fabrics include polyester and nylon content. Synthetic fabrics offer comfortable stretch and are moisture-wicking and breathable. Natural fabrics like cotton are lightweight and comfortable, but do not offer moisture-wicking abilities making them less useful for athletic wear. Many shirts by Chestnut Bay feature modal, a super soft rayon fabric that is made from beech trees, which offers an environmentally friendly moisture-wicking material. Fleece is a polyester based fabric that offers insulating warmth; this is often created with a smooth shell for wear around the barn to help shed hay and shavings. A traditional, natural fabric, wool is soft, breathable and moisture-wicking; additionally today’s modern fibers are not itchy like the older fabrics.
