Reviewed by kurtisk from Florida on Sunday, March 13, 2016The pocket flaps are sewed down on both edges (sewed into the panel for the buttons and under the armpit) so they don't really open up well. Not useless, but if you use them regularly (I like to keep my phone in mine) they are not useful. Everything else looks good and classic ExOficio.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by nolajoe57 from New Orleans on Saturday, February 13, 2016I live in New Orleans and wear Exoffico products most of the year because of high humidity. I started with the 100% nylon Exoffico [...] like Reef Runner and Air Strip. I have begun to wear the Contur'd shirts instead for the following reasons:
I lost 25 pounds and wanted a less billowy fit.
I wanted a slightly heavier material than 100% nylon.
I wanted some plaids.
I wanted slightly less bright colors.
I got a Mango colored Reef Runner shirt and it was too bright for me. The Countour'd Mango color is still warm but more modulated. I will say the Contour'd Mango color is brighter than the STP website photos. The Contour'd shirts are also more form fitting.
It's a great shirt and, like most Exoffico products, will take forever to wear out.
A few tips about Exoffico sizing:
The Natural fit is form fitting and not for guys who have large bellies or chests. It's also called a Straight fit.
Relaxed fit is loose and the Exoffico standard. However, if you want to tuck the shirt into pants, Relaxed fit has a lot of material.
Modern Relaxed is halfway between Natural and Relaxed.
The Contour'd shirt is a Modern Relaxed fit.
Waist Sizing on Exoffico shorts and pants tends toward a Natural or Straight fit. I wear a 32" relaxed fit in jeans but a 34" waist in Exoffico shorts/pants. The 32" Exoffico waist just didn't have enough give to it.
Three last notes on Exoffico:
Some colors and styles/products are manufactured once or twice only. If you see a color or piece of clothing you might want, get it. it may not be available again. For the example, Exoffico has stopped making Pescatore shorts (my favorite). A lot of Exoffico products on STP are close outs and can't be found the following year.
Exofficio Bone color is a very light Beige.
Exofficio white nylon shirts are easily stained in the neck and armpit area by perspiration.
