Closeouts. Ideal for travel, Royal Robbins' High-Performance Plaid shirt raises the bar on the casual plaid shirt. Made of a lightweight blend of nylon and spandex, it has the softness of cotton, with quick-drying performance and a ventilated back.

My husband is a biologist and a birder and he spends a lot of time out in the field and really uses clothes like Royal Robbins makes. This shirt is a perfect example of one of their quality products for outdoors activities. It is well made of quality fabric with great attention to detail. It has the style and good looks that they couple with comfort and usefulness. Royal Robbins is an excellent brand and at STP prices it I will be purchasing more!

A December purchase, I am saving this for warmer weather. Tried it on, fit is perfect to advertised size. Very lightweight and airy feeling. Short shirttail looks natural left out. The STP price was about ? of what I would have paid in a local store, I checked.

I purchased this shirt for my husband who has complained about the baggy pockets on so many of his UPF hiking shirts. This shirt's pockets are stitched down all the way around eliminating the unsightly droop on the pockets. The light weight makes it great for washing in hotel sinks and drying overnight. The shirt will be traveling to South America with us in November.

The only reason I am knocking a star off is that the shirt is a bit wrinkled out of the dryer. Other than the wrinkles it has been stellar so far. I do not tuck this shirt in, I don't think the drop is long enough for it and I like it that way. I wear this hiking and the shirt stays cool, as cool as can be in hot weather, and the shirt dries very quickly. The air flow back is disguised quite well, its not out there like a cape shirt. The fabric feels good and the sizing was spot on as described. I highly recommend you buy this shirt.

Royal Robbins is all in the details--an amazing technological feat, this shirt offers sunscreen, ventilation, wicking, security and style. Don't know how they keep doing it, but they set the standard for performance clothing--year after year--a month on the 500-mile Santiago pilgrimage in Spain is a test the shirt passed with flying (but tasteful) colors!

I am very pleased with this purchase. The shirt is of the very highest quality. The fabric is lightweight (but strong and durable) and feels like cotton! My dad will love it! He has to watch his sun exposure, but also gets hot easily....so this shirt will not only protect his skin, it will keep him cool!

Royal Robbins delivers for me again. I really like the technical feel of the fabric, and the split-back design to keep you ventilated. I'd only note that while the pewter color is obviously plaid, on my screen it doesn't look that dark. In person, the predominantly darker gray colors in the fabric make the shirt significantly darker in person that what appears on my screen. Not a big deal for me, but it might be an issue if you're looking for a color that keeps you cool in the summer. Still 5 stars.
