Royal Robbins celebrates 25 years of the Desert Pucker Shirt

This industry leading adventure shirt is cool, comfortable—and made from certified wood

SAN FRANCISCO (April 2, 2024) – Outdoor adventure apparel brand Royal Robbins celebrates the 25th anniversary of its iconic Desert Pucker and a storied partnership with its certified wood based[1] textile fiber brand TENCEL™. Since its debut in 1999, the Desert Pucker has built a cult following among outdoor enthusiasts and adventurers. After 25 years, it’s now an acclaimed best-seller with more than one million sold—and it’s certified Carbon Neutral by Climate Partner.

The Desert Pucker’s quick dry time, sun protection, wrinkle resistance, durability and easy care make this shirt ideal for outdoor adventures and days on the go.

“As we reflect on and celebrate the incredible journey of the Desert Pucker shirt over the past 25 years, we are grateful for the support of our loyal customers and the love for adventure that this iconic shirt represents,” said Erik Burbank, Royal Robbins Global Brand President. “This milestone is not just a celebration of a product, but a celebration of the incredible experiences and stories shared by our fans.”

Since the very first Pucker shirt, Royal Robbins has utilized TENCEL™ Modal fibers for its super soft, breathable, and ultra-comfortable blend, making the Desert Pucker shirt a standout. It all starts with wood based TENCEL™ Modal fibers that utilize responsibly sourced wood and a process that utilizes 50% less carbon emissions and water consumption than generic Modal fibers[2].

The wood used as raw material for all TENCEL™ Modal fibers is sourced from controlled or certified origins meeting the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®) or Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) standards. The Desert Pucker is a stand-out product in highlighting Royal Robbins’ avoid, reduce, compensate approach for achieving their emission climate goals.

“Since 1999, our TENCEL™ Modal fibers have been the enduring ingredient in Royal Robbins' Pucker Shirt, symbolizing comfort, durability, and sustainability. Celebrating 25 years and one million shirts sold, our partnership embodies timeless quality and environmentally conscious innovation,” says Sharon Perez, Senior Business Development Manager of Europe and America in textiles business, Lenzing AG.

The Desert Pucker leads Royal Robbins Spring 2024 style offerings, helping the brand meet its highest sustainability standard yet, with 87% of styles made from materials that contain 50% or more lower-impact fibers, preferred cotton, recycled polyester, preferred forest materials, hemp, or recycled nylon.
