Perfect for adventure travel
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 11"
Weight: 185 lbs
Size Purchased: Large

I now have 14 of these shirts that I have collected over the past 5 years or so. Why do I love them so much? Because they keep me cool, protected from the sun, and most of all THEY FIT.

I think it is unfair to say these shirts fit small. At 5'11" and 185 bls. with a 32" waist and 36" sleeves, I wear the same size large that I wear in almost every other shirt I own. The difference is that these shirts are cut with a modern, athletic fit that looks nice instead of blousey and sloppy.

I am 45 years old and have left my days of traveling around like a dirty hippie long behind me. Today I mix 10 mile hikes with visits to the museum and dinner. I can wear these shirts on the trail or in the city and they work just as well either place. Plus, they come out of my suitcase wrinkle free.

No, they are not as durable as some shirts. The lightweight fabric will snag and pull on twigs and thorns. So if your are a "real" adventurer blazing your own trails, gathering your own wood, and fashioning your own shelter, then these shirts are not for you. But if you stick to trails and lodges instead, these shirts are the best.

I'm giving this shirt 4 stars because it appears to be a well-made product. Can't really speak for the performance since I didn't keep it. I wish I had read the reviews before I ordered. This thing isn't just tight, it's SMALL! Very small in the shoulders, chest and arms. I'm 5'11" 185 lbs with a 34 inch waist and I ordered a Large. It was snug, but acceptable in the waist, but tight to the point of discomfort in the chest and under my arms. I tried to zip it up and thought I might asphyxiate.
Rather than mess with trying a size up, I'm just going back to a Smartwool Large which fits me perfectly.
