Verified Buyer Reviewed by Geoguy from Washington on Wednesday, June 17, 2015This is an interesting shirt and I have already used it. From the description it sounded like a good hiking shirt, but it is more of a light jacket with a complete mesh lining. Had I seen this in person I probably would not have bought it, but on-line it sounded good.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by OCULUS from Rensselaer, NY on Thursday, February 5, 2015AS someone else noted, the sleeves on this shirt are short, even in the larger size ranges. I first ordered the XL (I'm 46L) and it was trim-cut, including the sleeves which were short for my 35" arms. So, I ordered the XXL and as expected, the body was larger while the sleeves were only marginally longer. Sorry, but for something meant to cut the chill while being active, (e.g. boating) these sleeves just don't cut it. I returned the second one as well. It seems well made and the colors and fabric are good, but their sleeve patterns are off.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Leland Fly Rod Co. from California on Wednesday, April 23, 2014Great for summer camping! I'd already seen this shirt before, so I knew what I was buying. It's like a baby wind shell, but it looks like a standard shirt. Great for chilly morning hikes or evening breezes on the river. Packs well and is true to size. Best worn on top of a base layer.
Reviewed by Hayduke from The Dakotas on Monday, February 24, 2014I dig this shirt/jacket. If it it had a zipper you would call it a wind shell; it doesn't so call it a wind shirt due to styley snaps. Inside is a mesh lining that you would find in many other wind shells that allows it layer up easily.
I am not going to take it into the mountains as my only technical shell, but you will wear the [...] out it locally. It works for blustery days and getting caught in light rain.
I am 5'10", 170lbs, and the large fits me well.
Picked it up with an additional coupon that made it a bargain.
Reviewed by Johnny the Hiker from Upstate NY on Tuesday, April 9, 2013While I'm sure it's a great windbreaker, it's not really a shirt.
Very well made and looks great.
But it's heavier than expected, stiff, and the sleeves were short for the size.
I returned it.
