I have a few of these shirts and you get the feel of cotton and the wicking of a synthetic. UPF 30 rating is kind of a bonus. These shirts are super soft and feel good on your skin but I have had some premature wear from my backpack straps.

A bit heavy

For a lightweight t-shirt that wicks, this is 'ok'. I think it feels a bit heavy, not as cool as patagonia capaliene, which seems a bit lighter. Really durable though.

all-purpose shirt

I wore these for years as an all-purpose shirt, for hiking, trekking, gym workouts, and around town. One of the softest and most cotton-like feeling of the polypro shirts out there. I prefer a more athletic cut, such as the Patagonia Cap 2 shirts, which keeps the shirt closer to my body, but the feel of the fabric is sooo soft on these. I don't find them to wick moisture as well as some others, though, they seemed to just get wet and heavy after a while, but still a great shirt.

i wore cotton instead

I spent 4 months in south asia with a backpack and carried two of these vaporwick shirts with me. Though they may dry faster than cotton they certainly start smelling fast too (showers are few-and-far-between while backpacking). I found my cotton shirts to be just as comfortable, approximately the same weight, and a hell of a lot cheaper.

Great shirt, treat it properly.

Well I got this shirt for when going outdoors and working up a sweat, since its winter, I didn't really get to use it to its full potential(the wicking), however I can say that it feels softy and it's really comfortable and its really thin, well thinner than cotton shirts. The thing to watch out is how you treat the shirt, when washing, please follow the instructions, my mom washes it with other clothes(hot water wash followed by a dryer on high settings) and the next day, the label came right off, I don't blame the shirt as it's designed a certain way and needs special care but I really didn't expect the tag to come right off.
For lazy people, great shirt, comfy, looks good, performs good, cheap(for a performance shirt) but needs special care. AND please please don't scrub it with a brush for those who still do, this shirt will not survive.

Buy a weekfull of shirts

not the best wicking shirt, but I would rather have a full quiver of clean ones at a good price, than a couple precious t-shirts.

Slim fit?

No, this is a regular fit t-shirt.

You get what you pay for

The North Face VaporWick Ruckus T-Shirt is an average mid-weight, synthetic T. There are several other synth Ts I would recommend before this one, but this shirt is cheap. For the price, it is good. It did start to pile into small fabric balls the first time I washed it,(in cold water, and without drying in the dryer)but you could buy a few of these not be be too concerned about beating them up.

Static cling

I returned this T-shirt. Although it runs large, it clings to the body - felt kind of creepy to me!

If you don't wash it in warm will it shrink?...

Nah, poly's don't really shrink. That's an attribute of most organics from jeans to merino.

Nice shirt

Bought some Columbia, North Face, and Mountain Hardware shirts, and these and the Columbias were very similar and both very good. Comfortable, nice feel, dries quickly, seems durable. It's everything you'd want it to be. Would definitely buy more of these.

Spoiled! 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 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, 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.

Wear them almost everday

Originally found them at Dicks's Sporting Goods. They no longer stock them. I hope NF continues this line as I purchased 2 white and 2 blue more than 2 years ago and they are holding up like almost new. I do line dry them as they dry quick and dryers will destry most any garmet quicky. They are thin comfortable and light. You dont feel like you have a shirt on. Anyway, I just purchased 4 more because I dont know how much longer they will be around as generally all manufacturers eventually screw up and change a good thing. Best workout undershirt ever. I dont know how anyone can say this shirt promotes sweating because I find it to be just the opposite. Its greatest feature is the very breathable fabric.

Medium North Face VaporWick Ruckus Shirt in Black

I bought this shirt to wear underneath my uniform because I've been looking for a shirt that's comfortable, wicks sweat, won't stink, and will keep it's color. So far it's accomplished 3 out of 4, I can't speak on the color issue because I've only had this shirt for a couple months. Awesome shirt though. I am 5'11 and weigh about 177, the medium fits me perfectly. Get one, I'm getting more soon.

North Face Ruckus T-shirt

What I really like about these shirts is that they are soft like cotton, but quick drying like polyester. It's a good blend as I see it. I've worn other brands which are slippery/shiny or just a bit rough, but not as soft as the North Face Ruckus. I like a wicking outdoor T shirt for hiking, backpacking, and canoeing because they dry rapidly unlike cotton, and therefore keep you warmer on those cooler days. One last point... this shirt doesn't have the stink factor either, like so many synthetics do. You can get away with wearing it all day and not send your camp buddies packing! The fit is true to size, and as others have stated, a looser fit [not tight to the torso]. Since I like the looser style, this shirt wins high marks with me! A great T for all outdoor activities!

Good all around

Great shirt. I've had mine for over a year now and it still functions like the day I bought it. Great for any aerobic activity, and comfortable enough to wear anywhere. This is my anytime, anywhere shirt.

I am 6' 190 lbs and wear the medium pretty comfortabley.

not that good for real workout

The fit is ok and true to size, it's comfortable and good for just average t-shirt use, and for the price it is great. But I won't use this for training again. Holy crap this shirt gets moist and does not wick well compared to other products. It gets heavy and suffocating, so it is not a technical work out shirt! But for people who either don't sweat or don't really push it, it is probably alright. Buy it as"just another t-shirt" but don't buy it if you're in need of a good tech shirt. I gave it 2 stars because i feel the desciption of the shirt doesn't match.

Warm Weather Shirt

I just wore this for workout today in 100+ temps. I little heavy for the weather. Better in sub-100s probably. A great weight and durability for hiking. Recommend!

Baseball Jersey

I am a baseball coach for 10 year olds and I needed a green shirt because we are the Oaklandon A's. That being said, I was looking to find something that would keep the sweat off of me while standing on third base coaching. This shirt has been a blessing. For now on before the start of baseball season I am going to order a new shirt to match my teams colors. I love this shirt.


I bought these in yellow and it fits...


I bought these in yellow and it fits very well. I am wondering how the whistler green one would look like. The colour doesn't show up on my screen.

The North Face Harper Woven Shirt - Short-Sleeve - Men's

Has a whistler green that shows up, its kind of a greyish green.
