Decent shirt

Reviewed by bookgeekgirl from Maine on Monday, August 19, 2013
First off, I don't think this shirt runs small at all. If anything, it runs a bit large. I am 5'6, 130 lbs, 34B, and a size medium is a wee bit large on me. I'm a pretty solid medium in most brands, though I occasionally need a small. It's fine, since I plan to use this shirt for hiking and it's nice to have some extra room for mobility. But I also could have pretty easily worn a small. I got the "mirage" plaid color, which looks grey on the website, but is actually a pale blue. As it turns out, I like the true color better, but be aware that the website images are a bit misleading. Overall, the shirt is comfy, but not quite what I expected. The ripstop nylon is extremely lightweight, with a sort of woven-in grid structure. I bought this for hiking, thinking it'd help keep the bugs from biting, but I'm not sure the fabric is heavy enough to do that. If you're looking for bug protection, I think the bug shield plaid shirt from Columbia Sportswear is probably a safer bet.
