Bought this for a summer hiking shirt. I wore it this past week on a trip to RMNP, thought this shirt would be great to layer with. Was poorly mistaken, I liked the feel and fit of the shirt as well as the breast pockets. However this shirt did not breath, and I just pooled up sweat all over the shirt. It did dry off quickly once taken off and hung, but took a long time to dry out on my back. In Colorado with the mix of cool wind and hot sun seemed to be the kryptonite for this shirt. I would not recommend using this for a multi day trip, it likes to hold on to smells more than most my other dry fit material.

Hey Preston, Thanks for reviewing this shirt, sorry you weren't very happy with it though! Let me know if you'd like to get that sent back to us, and I'll help out with finding something else for you.

The material is so soft and comfy. The fit is perfect, neither too loose or tight. It's a perfect shirt to go hiking or fishing in.

Just finished a saltwater kayaking day trip with this. Kept the sun off, super cool when wet, dried out quickly. Pockets super handy for storing phone & wallet. Wore into town following the trip. My new go-to, love this shirt.

Just finished a 25 mile backpacking trip through Capitol Reef National Park at the beginning of June using this shirt. Although the temps were high during the day, the shirt kept me cool and easily wicked the sweat when a breeze came through the canyon. Great shirt!

This is a great shirt. I have been wearing it under a hoodie and its so light weight I can't remember its one. I look forward to wearing it on hot summer days and taking advantage of the weight and quick drying capabilities.

This shirt is so comfortable... It also is really functional for all the activities. One rad feature I use sometimes is the sleeves roll up and they have a way to secure them to make it a short sleeve shirt on those warmer days. Best part is you can roll straight to work, or the bar in this shirt.

Thank you so much for the review Alex, we appreciate you greatly!

Enough tech to make this a veritable travel staple, the quick drying material can take you from a hot day in the desert to the damp PNW in one flight. The zippered pockets keep things from getting lost and the casual fit ensures comfort for long days.
