I got this shirt in the cool blue + white striped pattern and was really looking forward to adding it to my winter running/biking/hiking wardrobe. But, as shown in the pics (but even more exaggerated in real life), the shirt balloons out in a funny way well above the waist (so not intended for hip room) - not as in, flare out subtly, but bubbles out. Very strange. I even ordered on the small side (Patagonia runs a size big for me). I had to return this shirt - bummer.
