The XL shirt fits exactly like other Merrell shirts however this one's fabric is not a tight knit weave. Loose enough to see it stretch when slightly pulled on.
In fact, upon delivery, there was a snag in the shirt so I ended up returning the it. I've noticed another quality shirt purchased from Sierra Trading Post that had imperfections on it as well as a couple pair of socks. I would suggest inspecting your clothing closely.

I like this shirt enough I've bought two now. Looks good in a variety of situations, from relaxed dinners out to wearing in camp. The back is yoked and breathes well enough I can wear this (briefly!) outdoors in brutal Texas summer heat.
Build quaility is second to no one, this is usually the case with Ex Officio.

I ordered the shirt and it was fine, until I washed it. It unraveled at the seam near the button holes. I asked for a replacement and the 2nd shirt did the same thing. I don't know if there is a problem with this lot or what. I like the shirt and Sierra Trading post did a good job with their customer service. I have never had a quality issue with ExOfficio before.

Seems to held its size after washing and a medium fits me great! It's also nice and soft to the touch. (I'm 6' and about 170 lbs) I'm guessing it's the mix of ploy in there that helped the sleeves stay long enough. I SHOULD ware a medium, but a lot of time have to go Large for the sleeves to stay long enough.
I wouldn't call the back "vented", it just has a nylon/poly mesh thing inside in the upper back to keep your back from sticking to the shirt when sweaty. I haven't tried it in warmer weather, but doubt I'll wear it much when warmer temps finally come. Nice for fall/spring/winter though.

This is a gift so I cannot comment on anything but the fact that Exofficio has
great quality and workmanship. Plaid pattern is very nice, I ordered XL in blue tone.
I expect it will be gratefully appreciated and enjoyed.
