by fromLightweight performance This is a terrific shirt. It is lightweight and comfortable. It has quickly become my go to shirt for hiking and mountain biking. The sleeves are a bit long but can be easily pulled up to the elbows. The big center zip allows you to cool off easily. The extra pocket is a nice feature to put a key or your ipod in. It even has a little opening to thread your headphones up through the shirt and collar. I've worn this shirt at least a dozen times already and I haven't encountered any lingering smells. It appears durable but only time will tell.

by fromFeels like a layer of warm air No pulling, binding, clinging anywhere. It just floats on the body like a layer of warm air.

by fromMy new favorite! I own last year's Venturi 1/4 zip, but haven't had a chance to use it enough for a review until now. This is my new favorite lightweight mid layer. (It's billed as a base layer, but runs a size too large. I ALWAYS wear a large, and the large here fit like a tent with a giant neck--in fact, it was too voluminous to offer any real wicking or warmth. I returned it for a medium, which is perfect). There is also some very slight pilling from where my car's seat belt rubs it ... but no pilling from backpacking all day with a heavy load, nor from trail running. So, on to the good stuff. This shirt is incredibly soft--it feels like it would be shredded by backpacking or even a single spin in the laundry, but it keeps coming back for more. I wear it over my old REI silkweight top, and that's all I need for trail running and backpacking in the upper 30's in the wind. This is a very durable shirt--I often carry one of my twins in a backpack on long hikes, and they love to pull my collar (along with hair, ears, etc). After hours of being stretched (and sucked on by a teething infant), the material is none the worse for wear. I snagged it on some thorns, and like all REI gear I own, it held up to the punishment with only very minor damage (and no unraveling). I suspect it will go back to normal after a wash. As for style, I wish REI would bring back the "mystic blue" or offer this in "bering sea." I love the new, less obvious chest pocket. I hope to purchase one of the new versions soon, but I will be ordering a size smaller than normal.

by fromBring it Back I've had many long-sleeved rash guards and other active-wear shirts. This is one of the best; feels and fits great w/ just the right amount of stretchiness... even looks good. Just now I came to the REI site to order more of them. "Sold out".... is that another way of saying you don't carry it anymore? That's a shame. Not often do I return to buy exactly the same item. Bummer.

by fromComfortable and Light I wear this shirt as a top layer on cool to warm weather days during alpine hikes. It's warm enough to keep the chill off, and it's thin enough to layer on top of. It's been great thus far!
