Pros and Cons to the thin material

Verified Buyer Reviewed by M.R. backcountry from California on Monday, July 3, 2017
I've only worn this a couple of times so far, so I'm still making up mind about it, but I have some solid first impressions. At this point, I generally like the shirt, but it isn't quite the standalone, multi-use shirt I had hoped it would be. I would probably rate it closer to 3.5 stars.
The material is super thin, which is great because it means it's really lightweight and breaths incredibly well for being out in the sun. I stayed quite cool while running uphill in the sun, and was pretty happy about not having to slather on sunscreen before heading out. However, the thin material is also fairly translucent and a bit clingy, so the feeling of being exposed is something to keep in mind. I'm also not sure how durable this will be in the long run.
I bought this shirt in yellow, and it is bright! I wanted something visible for running, so this fits the bill, but if it was toned down a bit from the highlighter effect, it might transition better into being a more casually wearable shirt.
I have purchased other shirts from Terramar and have always worn small. The sizing guide also confirmed that I would be a small for this shirt, but it is actually a bit tighter than I tend to wear my exercise shirts. I would think about a medium next time, especially if they had a color I wanted in medium. I'm a little over 5'5'' and weigh about 140 lbs.
