A terrific travel shirt

Verified Buyer Reviewed by TravelFiend from Northern California on Monday, May 16, 2011
This is a terrific shirt. I actually have four others, in various colors and fabrics, and I like them so much that I got a fifth. This is my favorite travel shirt of all times. It dries within 1 1/2 hours in a dry climate, is lightweight, sturdy, and looks good enough for city travel as well as hiking/outdoor adventures, flea markets, fairs, and so forth. The two front pockets are perfect for stashing passport, boarding pass, cash, and anything you need to have handy and keep safe. Probably you would notice if someone tried to raid pockets located right in front of your chest, so it is a worry-free shirt in potential pick-pocket situations. In addition, the shirt is nicely styled, flattering to a female body, but not too tight. It works as a light cover up over a tank top in warm weather, and over long underwear in cold. I took one of these to Europe for four weeks, my only shirt, washed it every night, wore it hiking, to beaches, through airports, on planes and trains and buses, and it looked as good when I arrived home as when I left. Once I washed it in an airport, put it back on, and it was fresh and dry by the time I boarded the plane.

The only cons with this particular shirt are that (1) it seems to stain just a bit more easily than the fabric of the other ExOfficio Dryflylight shirts that I have.(2) The first shirt I got had a defective zipper, which broke at the first washing, and ripped the fabric. I sent it back, and got another just like it. The new one is perfect. Good work ExOfficio, and thank you Sierra Trading Post!
