Favorite Shirt
5 5

I love the cut of this shirt. I'm about 6'3" 195 lbs and i bought a medium, which fits great around the torso, but the arms could probably be another half inch longer to be perfect. So far I've only taken it on day hikes, but I hit Old Rag Mountain in ~60 degree temps and it was a bit warm for the occasion. My only knock is it does retain odors quite a bit, but I think thats pretty standard for poly, so I'm ready to stink when it comes to it.

I've been using it in 90 degree heat inside of a pack, and it keeps water below 70 degress for about 4-5 hours. It does fit in the resevoir pocket on my BD Infinity 50, but just barely, this thing is rather bulky (you can easily sacrifice the insulation and pull the bottle out though). As commented below the hose does seem to be excessively long and after a couple of weeks still has a plastic taste, but these aren't enough to keep me from recommending.

Fits enough gear for an overnight or two, and performs comfortably with 40 lbs when scrambling (as long as you stack the weight near the hipbelt, but thats probably true of all packs) and fits in an overhead compartment when stuffed nearly to capacity. I haven't used it enough yet to make a durability claim but I haven't seen any weak points yet. One thing it lacks is a great deal of pockets, there's compression pockets on each side and the front, and only one hip pocket, but that's a small knock for the quality at the price.
