I absolutely love this shirt and actually have five in five different colors. Bought the first one for a 3-week kayaking trip to the Bahamas in 2009 and let me tell you, that shirt went through the ringer. It survived being doused with fish and conch guts, drenched in saltwater several times a day, and basically everything else that makes an adventure an adventure. It held up perfectly. It dries almost instantly and its amazingly light yet UPF30 fabric is very cool in tropical temperatures. I have since bought the other four to take on several other tropical kayaking adventures in Central America (and they've all performed just as well as the first), as well as hiking/backpacking throughout mountainous regions of North America. I can't say enough good about this shirt. The only con I can think of, and it is a pretty picky one just for those tropical regions, is that the mesh to keep the mosquitoes out does NOT keep out the sand flies and no-see-ums because the holes are too big for those tiny pests. (I have just sewn the back flaps shut and put a piece of breathable nylon over the backs (insides) of the pockets). I can't recommend this shirt enough. Buy one in every color that fits you. :)
