A good moisture wicking shirt for running. A little tight around the neck when putting on and taking off (or I just have a fat head), but it's not a problem when running. I would recommend this shirt for running.

Materials and fit seem to be quality. Fits true to size, maybe even on the roomy side for workout type shirts, which is a plus or minus depending on what you're looking for. I usually get Large in running type shirts, and this in L fit me great as a conservative look (i.e., one that doesn't sneak up the belly too easily nor look like you're going for a muscle shirt look in the sleeves. On the con side, it's a bit too heavy a feel than I like in workout shirts..this thing might be pretty hot if worn outside on warm days for, say, a long run. It seems to deal with moisture decently well...I just don't think it needs to be quite this thick. It's more suited, I think, to gym type workout, a bit of weights, a bit of cardio, etc. Mesh vents are good and offer a bit of help. Overall, I'd say if you are looking for a nice looking, heavier gauge tech type shirt but don't want that tight, bordering on compression look, this could be a good choice. Looks wise it's very classy looking..I got the Black with Blue highlights and it's definitely an expensive looking shirt, and the dark color masks sweat well. But, it doesn't FEEL particularly great to me. I would reach for other pieces I own for brisk activity on its own or as a base layer outdoors. It almost feels and wears like a casual shirt to me, but for that purpose I wouldn't go techy material. So, thus my mediocre rating.
I don't know what the "sandpaper" comment is about. I just ran a half marathon in this shirt in 65-70 degree weather and it was great. Overall the material seems slightly heavier than I was expecting but it didn't affect me as much I thought it might in the warm run, so it breathes quite well. I have 2 of these and they are so comfortable that I wear them casually around sometimes. Note that the color sections on the side and shoulders and neck tag area in upper back are a cotton-like mesh for air.
