Already own 3 and about to own 3 more now that the price is much cheaper than in 2010. I needed a V neck shirt for under a uniform and this was it. Simply put they are great at wicking moisture from under a bullet proof vest when the temperatures rise or you are stomping through the woods for other reasons. Usually get multi day wears from one shirt before its time for a wash.
They also work for everything else as it says: hiking, biking, paddling, running, walking the dog, or sitting around in the back yard. It dries out very quickly when needed.
I typically wear a M shirt but got S since I knew they were going to be under shirts. I'd say fit is true when it says slim. Only got them in Charcoal since I thought White could possibly stain and Black might be too warm.

Only con was the sleeves seemed a bit long for under the uniform and had to be removed.
DEAR EXOFFICIO, make this shirt without sleeves, otherwise, keep it up.

Stuffed my sleeping bag in this to ride the waves during a sea kayaking trip in the Everglades. I felt pretty sure I got any water in the holds of the kayak that my sleeping bag would be dry. I could shrink it down to a pretty small size and shove into the nose of the kayak to leave plenty of my other junk. The valve to squeeze the air out ended up in the sand more than once and after shaking it off it doesnt grate or crunch like there is still sand in it. Still seems to keep everything small.
I used the Medium (red) and its probably close to a 15L dry bag. Not too much bigger than a 10L.
I wish the trio wasnt still out of stock other wise I would have brought those along the trip.

Haven't yet tested with direct contact to rocks, trees, other bikers, etc. but fits well, keeps branches from slashing you in the face as you roll. Easy adjustment clips on the back and feels secure on my head. Good air flow on the hot days. Strap are easy to adjust.
If it counts for anything a few of the people I've ridden with think it looks cool.
Good Helmet.
