Breezy tee

I use the Argon Short sleeve in Space Jam at the gym. A lot of my cotton tees start to feel like I'm swimming in the pool if I get enough sweat on them-just bogged down, soaked, and drowning. But this tee wicks sweat the whole time and feels like someone hid a fan somewhere behind me to keep both me and the tee light and cool. A splurge compared to a cheap cotton tee, but a treat that's worth it

I haven't worn the shirt yet. I gave my rating do to fit and quality of material

My favorite everyday shirt

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I wear these every day. Whether at work (bodywork/rehabilitation), hiking and fishing and camping West Virginia ridges and hollers, or just going out. Dries quickly and has elastic a well as sleeves designed for mobility. I keep ordering more so that I do less laundry to keep up.

Great technical T-shirt

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Argon is my favorite technical t-shirt from OR. The fit is great and the material is comfortable and durable. This is the second argon I've owned and I've been very happy with both. I prefer the argon over echo because echo is more prone to snagging on thorns and brush and getting rips and pulls in the fabric. If they made an argon sun hoody I'd buy it in a second.

Lightweight shirt that is perfect for outdoor activity

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I love the breathability of this shirt. It performs as needed and keeps me cool in hot Los Angeles weather.

My favorite 3-season running tee

The Argon is my favorite running top for Spring/Summer/Fall weather. While it is a little heavier than some featherweight tees, it manages sweat so much better than those that it ends up being much more comfortable. I've also put hundreds of run-commuting miles in with this tee, and it's shown zero wear and tear from backpack straps.

Best base layer ever

The best base layer I've ever owned. Breathes great, snag resistant, has just the right feel of fabric.

Versatile and durable shirts

Been wearing these for a year or so with excellent results regarding function and fit. Decided recently to order more in a different color. They are very durable,comfortable and lightweight, and transition well from indoor activity to outdoor exertion. No pilling on shoulders or back from wearing my pack everyday and the neck is the same size even after pulling them over my fat head many times.

Great Sun-Protective Addition to the Line

Not quite as light and breathable as the Echo tees, but I'm willing to trade that for the UPF 30 sun protections (Echo only has UPF 15, not enough for OR to even list it in the specs). I really like the cut of the collar, and so far it doesn't seem like it is too likely to snag. I liked my first Argon enough that I've ordered more colors.

Very comfortable and great quality. I got a snag quite easily on a relatively flat trail which was a little upsetting, but expected with all shirts of this type.
