REI Sahara Shirt - Women's Plus Sizesis rated2.3333out of5by3.
Rated3out of5byfromNice Top but runs large.I read the reviews and because of several that stated this top ran small; I purchased one size larger, a 3 X. This was a big mistake. It runs very large in the plaid style. It measured 29 inches under the arms. I really liked it but it was huge. The little vent in the back puckered up on me. I sadly returned both tops. I should have ordered a 2 X not the 3 X. Now the white is out of stock in a 2 X too. Oh how I wish REI would carry Plus sized women's clothing in the store. Nice tops; but not for me.

Rated2out of5byfromUsed to be a great shirt -- no more!I used to love the REI Sahara shirt until someone decided it was a good idea to move the hidden pocket from waist-high to upper chest! Now it is no longer a "hidden" pocket at all -- it used to be perfect for my cell phone, but I sure don't need a rectangular lump right over my breast.

Rated2out of5byfromWhite shirt too thinI thought this would be a good shirt for the hot Texas summer. I ordered the white shirt since I do not like plaid. The shirt fit small and the material was so thin that the shirt was semi-sheer. The secret pocket on the white shirt was not so secret since the material was thin. I would order this shirt if it came in solid colors and if the white shirt was not as thin. Unfortunately, I returned my purchase and hope that they will improve these in the future.
