I've worn this one in the Afghan summer and have been pleased. Surprisingly, it didn't feel too clammy under body armor (a stern test for a synthetic shirt). I haven't gone maritime with it, but I think it'd do well.

North Face seems to be the brand to go to for these types of shirts.

They missed the mark with the material. It's not comfortable and doesn't break in. It doesn't really do anything for you an off-brand shirt couldn't.

To be fair, I was looking for one to feel like beloved sythetic shirt I have. Perhaps I carried too much expectation into this one.

Positives:
- freedom-of-movement
- warm (in the winter)

Negatives:
- durability (They are quick to fray at the cuffs and pockets. Otherwise, they seem to be pretty abrasion resistent.)
- thick (summer. Breath worse than Mountain Khakis)
- fading (while the dye the use is desgined to do this, they end up looking ragged pretty quickly)

Poor construction. They aren't that light, but still can't hold up.

Lateral movement in a sandlot (pick-up rugby in Afghanistan) destroyed these shoes. Within a couple of matches the treads came off the back of the sole. Mabye these would be okay for straightline running, but they did not hold up anywhere near as well other New Balance minimalists I've owened.
