I bought my wife a pair for an upcoming vacation, and they were delivered today. As soon as she saw them I new that she had made a wise choice. They look great, and fit perfectly. She says that they feel very comfortable. Another great North Face product!
I bought one of these at one of the local outdoor stores, and he had two in stock. After wearing the first one, I went back and bought the remaining one. I also went to the backcountry.com website and bought the five remaining colors that I liked (not much on the Yam Orange). They feel great, look great, and keep you cool. There are no laundry instructions on the shirts, but after taking them out of the washer (cold water wash), I hang them on hangers that are made for t-shirts (long with shoulder support), and within an hour they air dry, which means no dryer wear and tear. The colors don't fade, and they don't shrink. Buy them to fit! Today is the first day that I haven't had one on since buying them, as it is cool and raining. I am 6'1", and weigh 211 lbs, and the XL fits fine! Also, they feel good when used as a regular t-shirt under other garments. On another note, backcountry.com has the BEST return and exchange procedures that I have found on any web based business (when I ordered the shirts, I also ordered a cap that was too small and had to return it)! This is a lot said about something as simple as a t-shirt, but the comfort and quality of this product deserves it.
I have purchased the following: 1-Surge, 2-Box Shots, 1-2007 model Recon, 2-2009 model Recons, and 1-Mentor, the Mentor being the most recent. I have given 3 of them as gifts, and was very proud to give them. The Mentor is a great pack for any occasion, whether taking a hike to where you want to be, to taking a couple of days' clothing for a short trip. The Recon has a nice place to put damp items, or caps, etc. with the mesh compartment, but for a carry-on at the airport, or keeping things dry (and private) the Mentor works great! I would recommend it for anyone. Also, it is well made, as are the others mentioned.
