I am trying to think of a good reason to buy another one of these shirts. The quality is absolutely top-notch, sizing was accurate for me (5'4", 125 lbs.) It is lightweight yet breathable. I live at the beach and wore it for walks to protect from the sun. I plan on taking it to the Grand Canyon for a river and hiking trip.

I received this exact garment last Christmas and I can tell you that I wear this year around. It runs slightly large but if you have ever had to remove or put on layering shirts while kayaking this unique sizing comes in handy. The back vent is large but not open and never "flaps" in the wind. The material is soft and smooth without that sound which I have named the "friction burn". I know Kokatat makes Coast Guard suits so I know that my garment will be lasting. I am thinking about buying another one because of the great fabric and design.

I haven't used this yet, but the fit is very good and true to size. The yellow is a bit more goldenrod than the photo appears, but still a fine color. I am 5'6" and 155#, size 10-12 tops, and the women's medium is a good fit. I expect this to be nice sun, breeze, and splash protection on a nice day.

Admittedly I just received this shirt so haven't tried it out yet but I like what I see. The fabric feels great on the skin and there is plenty of ventilation. Nice high collar for sun protection. The colour is not overly trendy so it will look current for years to come. Would've been nice if the sleeves were convertible but I see Kokatat has remedied this for 2014.

Ordered when we had not optimal kayaking weather on our annual Orcas Island vacation. Will not get to try it until next year, but wish I had had it. Fit and material very nice! Looking forward to having weather where I don't need it:-)

I can't wait to take this to Baja sea kayaking. It's exactly what I was wanting to be able to wear my swimsuit underneath and have something sun protective and breathable over the top. I usually wear a size Med. but that was too big. A size small fits perfect for my application (e.g. I don't plan on layering any insulation underneath it.
