    I liked the color and the fabric of this shirt. It is quite fitted however (I ordered a M). I considered returning it for a L, to have more room, but then the shoulders would have been too wide. I will keep it and see how it does --

    I purchased this for a trip that required extensive time in the heat and sun. It was perfect! Despite 100 degree temperatures and bright sun, I was cool and comfortable. I love that I didn't need to put on sunscreen as this shirt keep the rays off. It fits beautifully (true to size) and the color was beautiful. I will keep this for any and all outdoor activities.

    This shirt looks even better in person. I really like the darker pink stitching details around the buttons (pink top - can't see in the photo).

    Fit: Some reviews recommended ordering a size up but I ordered my regular size small and it fit fine (35" chest) with room to spare. I measured the shirt at home in case it will help someone else get the correct fit: 17.5" across chest, armpit to armpit, 19" across the bottom hem (hip area), 20" sleeve length (armpit to cuff). The shirt also has stretch side panels for better fit and perhaps cooling. If I would change anything about the fit I would just make it longer in overall length. It measures 24.5" from collar seam to bottom hem.

    Fabric: The fabric somewhat mimics a linen fabric in terms of look and feel so it is a bit thicker than some of my Columbia brand UPF shirts so I will probably wear this at sundown when it gets cooler but the bugs get fiercer. It dries super fast and that is a big plus when traveling.

    I gave this 3 stars because the shirt was very attractive and the material lovely. However, it is cut for a wide shouldered and long and narrow rib-caged person. I have always worn a small or even extra small but this shirt was roomy in the shoulders and very tight from just below my bust to my waist. Sadly, I had to send it back and couldn't order a medium because the shoulders would have been too large.

    This shirt is a notch above the usual outdoors-sun protective shirt. The fabric is soft, comfortable and has a nice little weave to it that dresses it up. I will be traveling in the fall and needed something that will take me from dessert heat to the mountain cool. This will fit the bill nicely.
    I didn't give it a 5 star rating because the cut is a little narrow in the hip area. This makes it comfortable across the chest and shoulders for layering over a T-shirt or tank but tight across the hip. (I base this on a size medium for a 5'2" 125# middle aged but fit woman).

    I've got a S, fits well for 5'4", 108lbs. It's a little loose (I may have been able to get an XS). However, seeing that this is made for sunny weather, I'd prefer a little bit of room. I also like that I can wear a tank top, and this shirt over the top. The fabric feels light weight, and performed well in 80-90F. The mesh/vent areas definitely made the shirt feel cooler than regular shirts.

    The straps on the sides don't make the shirt an more flattering, but the cut overall is nice. I like that I can get away with wearing this shirt as a semi-formal wear to work (and I teach students). The light-green color looks nice in real life, and not too bright as may seem in the picture.

    Sizing was way off - very small.

    Light weight but doesn't wrinkle and stays fresh looking. Great color, very comfortable, fits perfectly

    I love the fabric! The feel is luxurious, and the variegated colors in the weave prevent the understated color from being dull. The covered underarm vents are good. Suggestions for the designer: 1-add a pleat in the back for more ease 2-make the cuffs narrower 3- add a button hole on one side of the collar and a button to match on the underside of the other so the collar can be worn up for added protection.

    I thought it would be lighter but it is not. This garment would be perfect for the Fall. I ride a motorcycle and this is my choice for Fall driving.
