Comfy shirt, not uber bomb proof
I have this shirt in blue. The Mahdia fabric as the other reviewer stated is lightweight, and really soft... I would say most useful for casual wear or beach cover up type wear. The sleeves are pretty substantial. The V in front is a nice height- not too low that you worry, a nice touch. I plan to probably minimize machine washes to preserve this fabric but this shirt is really comfortable and soft. I can't testify how bomb proof it is but I'm guessing this isn't what you bring back packing or wear when you're going to get super muddy. The pattern's really pretty!
