I got this shirt primarily because I had a number of functions coming up which would necessitate a floral / tropical shirt and thought this one was pretty cool since it was that and gray as well. Upon arrival, it is definitely a more blue color than is indicated in the picture. I am disappointed that the one feature I sought in the shirt turned out to be missing from it, especially since I keep my wardrobe a consistent color scheme and can no longer rely on the pictures provided by Backcountry.com to accurately represent the product. Note in the attached photo that the tacking attaching the chest pocket to the shirt is bright blue, where it is a more washed out gray color in backcountry.com's detail image.
Otherwise the shirt is decent quality, with some loose threads. The large works well for me, and I'm usually a medium. I'm giving it three stars because the details and description specifically sell up the interesting visual qualities of the shirt, then Vissla wholly fails to deliver in the manner touted.
