What can't it do?
Hot and sunny? Check. Cool and drizzly? Done. Menacingly cloudy with a 102% chance of hail, eye-watering wind, and swarms of locusts? Fine, maybe the Stoic Breathe 90 Men's T-Shirt isn't perfect for absolutely everything, but it's pretty damn good until the weather becomes Biblically unpleasant, courtesy of lightweight, quick-drying, and moisture-wicking fabric, along with a Polygiene antimicrobial treatment that won't drive your partner out of your improvised shelter as you ride out the storm.

Doesn't hold up to pack shoulder straps
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
I've owned the Breathe 90 for about two months. It's extremely comfortable, lightweight, and breathes and dries very well. However, it didn't hold up to an overnight Utah canyon backpacking trip, showing a lot of wear and pilling where the pack harness rubbed it. Too bad given how comfortable the shirt is. AT least it doesn't appear to be prone to snagging like some other lightweight tees. The Basin Blue color is great, but you might be surprised when you see it isn't really a solid color but a blend of lighter and darker threads that give it a mini-stripe look up close. It would be a great shirt for just knocking around, but be careful about pack strap wear. Too bad, because that was exactly the purpose I had in mind when I bought it on sale at SAC. A typical Stoic fit: long, a little trim, snug arms. I'm 6'1", 215, and the XL fits great.
