REI Sahara Shirt - Women'sis rated4.1818out of5by11.
Rated5out of5byfromDark Sapphire is really purple!When I read "dark sapphire", I think of a dark royal blue shade, so have avoided this color of my favorite shirt. I was in a store last month and saw this beautiful rich purple (but not in my size) and low and behold the tag says "dark sapphire". I jumped right on the web to order my size before they are all gone. The Sahara L/S shirt is so versatile that it is a wardrobe staple. the material is nice enough to use under a jacket for business (okay, I iron it before for this purpose), or is great for any casual activity. I like that I can roll the sleeves down to protect my arms from the sun and when I am air conditioned spaces that get too chilly.

Rated5out of5byfromThe weather is too hot to wear this now,Because it's still a hot summer, I've worn this only once or twice. I love the feel and fit -- and the bright color. I will use this shirt primarily for kayaking and for hiking.

Rated3out of5byfromMemo to REI - size down!This is one of those things that looks great online, but just doesn't work in reality -- at least not in small sizes. I'm normally a 2 or 4, and as with all REI-brand things I've tried , this runs HUGE - the XS fit more like a M. So it may work for you if you're a M, L or XL, but I'd definitely size down. Also, thit is very straight up-&-down, so if you want something fitted, this isn't it.

Rated5out of5byfromExcellent!This is my go to for early and evening hikes... as well as any water adventure. You don't get cold or hot in this shirt. I should most likely purchase all of the colors!

Rated4out of5byfromI want this shirt in every color!I love these shirts! I have three of them now, and I use them all the time, not just for outdoor activities. If I'm going to hang out in a coffee shop or go to a movie or anywhere that it's generally cold, I take this shirt along to put on over my t-shirt or tank top. For camping, it's great as the sun goes down and it starts to get a little chilly, plus it keeps off the mosquitoes!

Rated5out of5byfromDoes the jobTook this on a three-week trip recently to Turkey, Greece and Italy. It was a perfect cover over a light T-shirt. Loved how it breathes. Was easy to wash in the sink and hang to dry--necessary when traveling!
