    I love this top!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: M
    • Height: 5'4"
    • Weight: 133lbs

    I bought same top few years ago. I love so much that I bought two more colors. It is so light that no issues with over weight carrying all your stuff on your backpack. It keeps cool when I hike and dry quickly washing by hand at the end of long trekking. I really like all of the Outdoor Research product for hiking.

    Favorite Athletic T-Shirt

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: medium
    • Height: 5'6"
    • Weight: 140lbs

    I owned the long sleeve version of this shirt for a few months before I picked this one up. They're both incredibly lightweight and breathable. OR's line of shirts have quickly become my go-to tops for most of my summer activities. They've really nailed the material, cut and colors with this line and their warranty department is incredibly easy to work with.

    Great top

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    Got this about 2 years ago. Very lightweight which is great for hot temps outside or when your body warms up. Wicks moisture excellently. Something that may have been updated since my purchase is that it stinks after every workout; however it handles washings superbly - it looks like new and performs like new. I tend to "smell" in my under arm area very quickly no matter what I do deodorant wise or shirt wise (except maybe merino wool). I have a hard time wearing crew necks but this one worked out okay as with the size I got was a bit loose and the neck is "flexible". Will by again when in the market. Had a flattering fit - not a box shirt, which was great.

    Love this top!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    I bought this shirt when I needed to restock my wardrobe for some lightweight backpacking clothing and I'm so glad I chose it. Not only is it exceptionally lightweight, but the fit is so comfy it feels like I'm barely wearing anything. I also really like the coverage it has over the arms (not too much exposure when hiking in full sun). I would definitely recommend it!

    Great top for hot & humid climates

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size

    This is a great lightweight, loose fitting top that is going to be perfect for humid running conditions. It will be replacing a TNF Better Than Naked top that I've worn for summer running the last two summers. Great price and highly recommended.

    My best hiking shirt

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    I have tried several lightweight, breathable hiking shirts and this one is the best. So I bought it in 4 colors. This shirt is very comfortable, very breathable, and it keeps you cool. I get hot very easily so this type of shirt is a must for me. I use it in 45 degree weather with a light jacket and in 95-100 degree weather. I like the company profile for Outdoor Research too.

    All day comfort

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    I purchased this T-shirt for summer hiking and backpacking. I really enjoy lightweight fabrics during summer that breathe well and dry fast. The Echo T-shirt promised just that.

    The fit:

    I am 5'7' and 120 lb, the size I usually wear for outdoor activities is S so naturally I picked the Echo in this size. Once I put it on, I found it semi fitting, the fabric clings a little but it's not skin tight, just like I expected from the manufacturer's description.

    Right away I noticed the sleeve's are shorter than what I'm used to. The way they are constructed, they allow for full range of movement without squeezing or pulling my arm. I really enjoy the freedom but my personal preference would be for an extra inch or two of length on the sleeves.

    The fabric is thin. It provides good coverage for its weight; however it can show bra marks, especially if you choose lighter color.

    The Performance:

    The shirt provides an all day comfort. It does a good job wicking sweat away, and it dries nearly instantly so even on very hot days I did not feel the typical sweaty stickiness building up.

    I was also pleasantly surprised by its odor control properties; it handled a 9 day trip without a significant stink.

    I was initially worried that the fabric might be little too thin but even after two years of heavy usage, it holds up with no visible wear marks.

    Exceptionally Lightweight

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    I wear this top to run, but I imagine it would be great for hiking. I appreciate that the fabric provides SPF, since I prefer to be outside whenever possible. The fabric is so light, sometimes it's easy to forget that you're even wearing it. The side pocket is great for me to store my shuffle. I am 5'2" and 105 pounds-- and although I purchased a small, I think an extra small would have been a better fit.

    lightweight and breatable

      For a summerweight T, the Echo can't be beat. The Echo is really lightweight, airy, UPF 15, wicks moisture, and also has Polygiene for odor control, the Echo T moves with me on all of my adventures. I love its thoughtful design with flat seams and a small pocket for money, goo, etc!

      Super silky

        I bought this shirt for hiking and working out and fly fishing. So far it has been wonderful at the gym. It feels like silk next to my skin and I don't get all sweaty. It is so lightweight and washs up just great oh I just love it

        Great T-Shirt!

          I just got the Echo T-Shirt in May and absolutely love it! It is almost paper thin and dries very quickly, great for hiking or kayaking. The sleeves are a little short but provide enough coverage to protect your shoulders from the sun. I wear a small in this shirt and it fits perfectly (34" bust). I would recommend bigger chested women go for a size up. It does retain a little odor but I guess that is expected from synthetics...use some sport wash and it will go away.
