Bought one last year, came back this year and bought 3. Will not buy any other shirts. Love it. Sizing is true to size chart.
First impression was that it was the perfect shirt that I wanted, otherwise I wouldn't have dropped 90 bucks on it. The shirt is stylish enough that I want to wear it around even when I'm not hiking or traveling. I recently went around europe and this was my only long sleeve and it performed great. It can perform hiking in the alps and at night in Vienna. My only complaint, and also a huge disappointment is that very quickly a spot developed around my upper back where the die ran so it looks like I permanently have a sweaty back. I hope this is just an error with mine but it is extremely disappointing to have this happen on a shirt I spent 90 dollars on. I would still recommend the shirt because I wouldn't count on the same thing happening to another but be wary.
This shirt is everything I was hoping for in a long sleeve shirt. I recently wore it almost every day on a 40 day backpacking trip and its versatility served me very well. Whether needed for a night out or a day hiking trip, it worked and looked good. As expected, it was perfect for moderate and cooler temps. However, I was pleasantly surprised with how good it felt in the hot temps as well. It is very breathable, I loved having the front mesh chest pockets. It didn't show any sweat marks especially when carrying a pack in 90+ degree weather.
The only reason why I am giving it 4 out of 5 stars is the Arc logo on the back top of the shirt (below the neck between the shoulder blades). I got the shirt in black and the logo on the back is in bright white and stands out from the rest of the shirt.
Other than that though, a great versatile button down shirt.
Great cut, good looking casual shirt
I had the short sleeve version for 2 years, and just acquire 2 long sleeve shirts. The material are not 100% the same (72 vs. 70% cotton). And the short sleeve is made in Thailand, versus Bangladesh. They are similar enough so I will review them together here.
Overall the cut is great, I'm 6-3, 185 lbs with broad shoulders and relatively small waist (33). It feels like the shirt is tailored for me, particularly around the shoulder. It is really good looking that I won't hesitate wearing it to formal settings (especially the white color). Functionally, the pockets are a little peculiar. Yes, it will take two hands to open/close them, and you look funny during the process (i.e. chicken wing dance moves). It looks even more strange (i.e. boobs like) when you have things in both pockets because of their placements and the pocket design for concealment. But I usually don't have anything in them unless I'm outside hiking/climbing. At that point I don't really care. The material is knit tight, so it might not be as breathable as a thin T-shirt or a linen shirt. And it is a little prone to wrinkles too.
The bottom line for me is, it is very good looking and versatile, closer to a dress shirt than a pure hiking shirt. When I need to travel light, this is the only shirt I bring.
