Back is not vented

Reviewed by California Hiker from Sacramento, CA on Tuesday, January 29, 2013
Just received shirt and realized that the description on website is wrong with respect to back venting - which was a major consideration for purchase. The product description states "mesh-lined back yoke vent." The part about "mesh-lined back yoke" is correct, but the mesh is a yoke lining and the shirt does not vent (which to me means a fold or pleat or tuck or zipper which allows the mesh to be exposed to air). Will try anyway and hope that the fabric wicks enough. Color was true, fit was a tad large for the size. Construction was OK, but not nearly the level of stitching detail as with some competitor brands. Part of the confusion caused by having the word "vent" in the description might have been avoided by having a picture of the back of the shirt on the website.
