This arrived completely wrinkled; I assume it was a return. I can see why; the Glamour color is really garish. Also, the fit is awful. It's too short, it's too blousy. I had one of these shirts several years ago, and it wasn't my favorite, but it fits ok and works for trips. This fit is not close. If you are tall, try the White Sierra Gobi. It lays well; this one just stuck out under my chest and made me look pregnant. It might work if tucked in, but I don't tuck this type of shirt in, so it's a no go for me.

This is the third time I've had an ExOfficio shirt. The first, which was many years ago, fit perfectly in size M. The second time, I ordered from Sierra Trading Post a couple of years ago; the size M was quite a bit larger, but I kept it anyway because I liked the fabric which is a nylon that feels like cotton. This shirt, also a M, is very small, especially in the armhole and chest area. Also, the fabric is quite sheer and has an unpleasant feel, not at all like the fabric in my previous two shirts, so I sent this one back. To sum up, I really like the ExOfficio pocket design, but I wish that they would be consistent with their sizes.

I bought this along with the matching t-shirt and I love it. The fabric doesn't look like your average hiking shirt - it looks like a stylish button up shirt. It dries quickly and even though I crumpled it up in my pack it emerged wrinkle free. My only criticism is that I wish it was a tad longer - it's shorter than the matching t-shirt. Also, it's a bit boxy and I prefer my shirts to be more fitted. Despite those 2 issues I think this is a very functional and nice looking shirt.
This shirt is slightly small to size. For reference I have a 34" bust, am 5'6" and weigh about 120 lbs, and usually wear a small. When the sleaves are rolled up it feels slightly binding in the forearms. When I move and reach it doesn't bind in the shoulders or back but I prefer a bit more room for a shirt of this style.
Oh- the color... I expected the "glamour" color to look like azalea but let me tell you, gals, that an orange traffic cone is more like it. Not sure that a traffic cone is "glamourous!" If you want people to see you coming then go ahead and order the glamour. As it stands I kept the shirt because I walk our dog and can wear it so that motorists on the back country roads can see me. No excuse at all for anyone to hit me!

I've purchased a half dozen of these shirts in recent years, in medium size, and have been very happy with the material, fit and comfort for active wear. I recently purchased two shirts, both sized M, One was too tight overall and I returned it. The other just fit. I compared the shirt I kept to my previous purchases and found that Ex Officio seems to be skimping on sizing now. The sleeves are about 2-1/2 inches narrower, the width across the chest is about 2 inches less, and the back width is about 1 inch less. I'm very disappointed with this change.

I wasn't quite ready for what the material would look and feel like. The look is relaxed. You can touch it up after drying if you need to feel like you look a little more spiffy when you do. Or you can take it like it is, with natural- looking wrinkles that will still be there to some extent if you iron. it. I like it the way it is. The fabric feels nice on your skin and the shirt is very light; almost not there.

This is a beautiful shirt, with nice material so I was seriously I disappointed when I tried it on. ExOfficio runs at least a size smaller than everyone else. I didn't realize that or I never would have ordered this. I had to return two shirts that I ordered because of the size issue. So 4 stars for the material and 1 star for being undersized.

Comfortable, nice fitting short. Material has nice feel and does not wrinkle. I ordered Framboise and the color is like the picture. Vents are discrete enough I can wear it to work. Pockets a little odd, as putting anything in them make your chest seem oddly shaped.
