Who needs air conditioning when you have the organic cotton Patagonia A/C Shirt?

The Patagonia Men's A/C Short-Sleeve Shirt features a fine organic cotton weave that acts like air con for your skin when the weather's hot. This regular-fit shirt's collar won't curl in humid weather, and a straight hem with side vents looks good tucked in or left out.

Very soft and comfy

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

Perfect for the hot summer days when a good bike ride to the local market or bar is in order

Beat the heat in style

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

What an awesome button up!
It's super thin and light so you feel every breeze.

In the first few times wearing it, I already spilled a handful of liquids on the shirt and it's cleaned up really nice so far.
I cant wait to take this thing to Brazil in a few weeks.

Best button-down short sleeve I own

I LOVE this shirt. The fit and material couldn't be better. I am 6'0, 170lbs and a medium fits great. The fabric is very breathable and yet the shirt is still durable. No wrinkle issues either! I have the turnbuckle color which doesn't look as bright in person which was a positive for me.

Favorite Shirt

This is one of my favorite shirts I own. It is incredibly breathable as well, which comes in handy when you're in 90-100% humidity almost everyday.

95% Humidity, Challenge Accepted

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I live in Savannah, GA and in the summer this is my go to shirt. The fabric breathes like crazy and will keep you cooler than that guy just wearing a wife beater, and you wont look like a hooligan at the same time. Score

This was my wedding shirt!

I got the bright white and used it as my wedding shirt. Granted it was on the beach, but I was styling out. Crisp and clean and oh so breathable. I have a couple others in plaid and they are top notch in quality and fit. I'd highly recommend one of these are you like button-ups, these are the best you can get.

Right Near Da' Beach - Booyyyieee

Boom. Definitely pick this up if you are looking at it on S&C. Super airy and breezy, a must for those of us cold weather folks traveling south.

hot day?

This is by far my pick for a summer shirt. Very light, vents well, a bit classier than a tank top. I originally only bought one and now have four as they were well worth it. If you're looking for a button down summer shirt, this is the one.

saved me in vietnam

Saved me from the vicious heat of vietnam & oklahoma. Very comfortable but only wish they would have made the shoulder stitching backpack friendly. The cotton is a bit corse against your skin if you need to wear a backpack. BUT I don't think that was the intensions of the shirt... Overall great shirt, bought 2.

Accurately named shirt

This shirt really does allow the breeze to pass right through, yet still feels very sturdy and durable. It's super soft against the skin and has a really nice loose, but not baggy, fit. Looking forward to pulling this shirt out on those hot summer days.

I actually wear some of the A/C colors all year around. I live in West coast. I layer it with long sleeve polo and it looks great. Try it!

Comfy style

Great button down with the right cut to be worn both at the office and at the pub. One of my must-have shirts for traveling as it doesn't need any special attention and seems to resist the funk better than others.

Hot like lava

The perfect shirt for heat and humidity. Very light weight with an open weave, that is likely part of the durability issue. My oldest version in on its 4th year and has been dedicated to beach and camping use exclusively. Probably best to try one on first for sizing. As we all know, Patagonia changes the fit of much of their clothing annually. I own 2 larges and 2 mediums and they fit about the same. All-in-all a favorite shirt for life in the islands.

Awesome shirt, I buy one for my husband every year. Sizing seem to change annually so try it on.

Great shirts, wish there were more

I ordered a couple of these. Despite a quality problem with one shirt (as others have mentioned), Backcountry immediately made it right and shipped a replacement shirt before my vacation (Many THANKS, Backcountry!)

Both shirts were as advertised -- cool, comfortable, attractive, well made. They were the most comfortable, airy shirts on my vacation to a frequently visited favorite spot, which happens to have a tropical hot and humid climate.

Pantagonia is made for quality, so not sure what's up with the mfg defects, but definitely, these shirts are Worth It! I only wish there were a few more solid colors and a few more versions made of this same material. Pants would be great too. Not as rigid as seersucker, but with a crinkly appearance, soft, and airy without being revealing, these really are perfect. I guess I've said that before so it's time to end this review.

Thanks to Backcountry for saving my vacation and taking care of me. Honestly, the best customer service I've experienced in a long time!

Cool shirt for weekend wear

I tried to order the Patagonia A/C Shirt twice, the first time from another seller, the second from Backcountry. I returned the first one because it was missing a button and a button hole on the bottom so that it looked like the shirt started to part right about 2/3 of the way down. I'm not sure how Patagonia missed that, but for $70 I thought they could do better. My second order from Backcountry was better, but the shirt doesn't look quite even in the front when I leave it untucked, so I've resigned it to the most casual wear and nothing where looking neat is required. Of course, the delivery service from Backcountry was great, and I highly recommend them as a seller. As for the Patagonia A/C shirt, it's a great, lightweight summer material, but there's definitely more value in shirts from other manufacturers, the organic component notwithstanding.

Very lightweight and cool

I really like this shirt. It is very thin and lightweight, and breathes exceptionally well. For hot days, it really can't be beat. It seems to fit pretty much true-to-size, but slightly on the loose side. It seems well-made, and the color selections are nice. It is definitely long enough to tuck in, but also looks fine untucked. For a cool, casual shirt, it would be hard to top this one.

Comfortable but inconsistent sizing

These shirts are truly comfortable. Unfortunately, ordering two shirts of the same size doesn't mean you will receive two shirts of the same size. When one is 1 1/2 inches shorter than the other one, there's poor quality control somewhere.

Responded on

As mentioned above, Backcountry quickly addressed the quality issue with a fast replacement! Thank you, BC!

Great for hot/humid conditions

This is my favorite short sleeve shirt. It wears like a piece of gauze. I wear it on business trips to south Texas (very breathable), dayhikes (it dries really quickly), and for every occasion in between (it's soft and durable). I'll continue to get a new one (or two) every year that Patagonia keeps making them.

Patagonia A/C Shirt

I bought the Patagonia A/C Shirt for my boyfriend to wear to work, casually, and for dinners out with the parents and me. He looks great in it...it's comfortable...and it's cool. What more could you ask for? He's 6'1", 185 lbs, and a large is perfect.

Unbelievavly cool!

When I bought this shirt I didn't take the time to read the description. I just really liked the shirt. Then I got it and wore it on a hot SLC day. Holy crap, this is the coolest shirt (literally) I've ever worn. Perfect for 90+ degree days. I advise getting the entire collection. They're sooooo choice!
