the best backpacking shirt!

just got back from a 3 day high intensity backcountry backpacking trek and i have to say, i was SO glad that i bought this shirt for it.

we experienced both misty cold weather, high winds, and hot blaring sun during the trek, being that we were by the coast. this shirt aired out quickly, stayed dry, and was both cooling or warming depending on the weather. i am super impressed and would totally recommend this to anyone looking for a nice comfortable top for a trek. i wore this shirt all three days and it never smelled... it only smells of campfire from our last night :)

as for fit, i have a sort of large chest and short torso and this shirt was super flattering, comfortable and not too clingy. it fit true to size.

definite buy!

Ordered a few last year. Best merino around in terms of fabric. However, I found the stitching to be of poor quality -- at the hem and the thumb-holes in the long sleeve versions. I am going to order one of the new colors and see if this aspect has been improved on.
