Closeouts. Hitch a ride on the Marrakesh Express wearing Royal Robbins' Morocco plaid shirt. The quick-drying, wrinkle-resistant blend of rayon and polyester drapes well during extended travel and offers UPF 50+ protection from the Saharan sun.

This is a very nice shirt that fulfills Royal Robbins' goal of making clothing that works both in the outdoors and in town. The model/rayon/poly blend drapes significantly better than all materials that are all poly or nylon and just looks and feels way better -- richer and softer. Rayon doesn't dry particularly well -- it's not that different than cotton -- but it is a blend and I have no reason to believe this shirt would not perform well in any but the wettest conditions. So far it has only seen perspiration from me, but did fine with that. I like the snaps instead of buttons for a change. I found the fit in medium slightly snug vs. most mediums in all parts of the shirt including shoulders and mid section. It was not a full size different, but on the snug size of medium. I've carry a few extra pounds but by no means a beer belly, so I'd have to disagree with the other reviewer that complained about excess fabric in the mid section. I suspect for most it will fit well. Overall I'm very happy with this shirt and wish Sierra had it in other colors.
