I don't love this shirt, but I have 3 of them

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Rock-Kicker from Arizona on Sunday, May 3, 2015
I've decided I need to wear long sleeves for hiking and backpacking for sun protection. I bought and wore a white one of these shirts daily for a 680-mile backpack to finish the Pacific Crest Trail last summer. It didn't stay very white under those conditions, but blood spots washed out easily with cold water. It's not especially cool in hot weather, but nothing ever is. I bought 2 more recently in the Sail Blue and Vivid Green colors for an upcoming raft trip through the Grand Canyon, and they both are quite bright. I wore the blue for a long day hike yesterday, kept wishing it had underarm ventilation. I bought the shirts for sun protection in desert conditions (I live in Arizona), so would happily do without the convertible sleeve option that I'll never use. The little straps for buttoning the rolled-up sleeves are always tickling my arms, so I guess I ought to cut them off. And the little pocket in front is too small to be useful, though I at least can fit a small energy bar in it if I want. The shirts are okay, and I'd probably have to pay a lot more to get something I like better, though I don't love them.
