by fromDisappointed Tiny pockets are useless - no thanks! The lavender color is dull and dingy, not luminous as it appears on the computer screen. And way too dark for hiking around in the desert all day.

by fromToo Tight Sleeves Tried this on in the store yesterday. I admire many of the design features, and prefer the fabric to several of the others I tried. But when I rolled up the sleeve to test the feature of fastening it up with a tab, the sleeve was so tight I could not get it over my elbow! I was trying on a size large, which fit nicely in all other ways, and I do not have abnormally large arms or elbows. Actual measurement around my elbow at the largest point, arm held straight, is 9 5/8". Went away disappointed without buying a hiking shirt.

by fromREI shirt is good. Needs care in washing I bought a very similar REI shirt about six years ago. It is excellent for hiking. backpacking, canoeing, etc.. Just be careful not to wash it with clothes that produce lint. My old shirt has little pills of lint covering it. It has always been hung dry.

by fromThey changed the pattern - MUCH SMALLER! I had a 4 year old version of this shirt. Bought another of identical size/type and it was way too small. I compared it to my old shirt. Same part number, shoulders were 1" narrower, sleeves were 1" narrower. Bad business to offer it cheaper and not say the pattern for the item was changed! This item is SO DIFFERENT from my old shirt that it should have a new product name and new part number. I got it today - I'm driving 20 miles to return it today...I'm that angry!

by fromThorough Sun Coverage Plus Sun Cuffs! In sun-intensive Colorado, I wear a long-sleeved, button-down shirt when hiking, climbing and sometimes bike touring and running errands. And this is one of my favorites - it's the only one I've found with back-of-the-hand coverage w/ its sun cuffs. Overall, it's highly effective in keeping the sun off my skin (so less sunblock and I stay cooler). And I Iove its vibrant color (orchid or fuchsia).

by fromGreat Shirt This shirt really keeps the sun off of you. I burn in the shade with 100 SPF lotion on within one half to one hour. This shirt is not only cool, but has kept me from burning!!! I really like the hand covers!! The neck cover, though, tends to stick up, but that's OK. Though I normally wear a small to medium in shirts and I purchased a large in this shirt so that I'd have a little more room to allow in cooling air.Overall, I highly recommend this item to keep the sun off your skin!

by fromLots of great features in a UPF shirt I was looking for a UPF shirt & after looking at the other brands, I choose the REI brand. Love all the features, hand flaps, neck flap, back flap, lots of zippered pockets, & love the lilac & orange colors. It would be great if there were a few paler color choices too, besides tan & white. Maybe pale yellow, or green.
