    by fromSewing could be a little better I like almost everything about this shirt and the size as indicated seems to be correct, unlike that sizing of the REI Igneo Plaid Shirt which is cut one size too small. The only problem I had with this shirt (and the regular Sahara Tech Shirt) is that the sewing of the buttonholes could be better. Practically every buttonhole had loose threads that would catch when unbuttoning the shirt.

    by fromnew design for 2014 New for 2014, the Sahara Tech shirt is now offered in plaid with a polyester / lycra blend fabric (or nylon / lycra blend for the solid color options, which are listed as a separate product on the website). The addition of a small amount of lycra stretch offers much improved freedom of movement over the old Sahara design, while the polyester offers excellent wrinkle-resistance. However the shirt is somewhat heavier than the old design (partly due to the materials, partly due to it being a fair bit longer below the waist which is ideal for wearing with a backpack). It also features a tighter weave that seems to render it modestly less breathable than the old design. As such, I would call this shirt an improvement over the old for more casual pursuits, but less well suited for more performance-oriented adventures like extended backpacking trips in hot climates. It does look sharp though.

    by fromNice shirt I bought this shirt for a trip to China where I need lightweight, wrinkle-free and quick-drying fabric, and this shirt seems the meet all the criteria. It's all synthetic, so it doesn't the the softness of cotton, but it works well for my needs.

    by fromgreat versatile shirt I really liked my previous Sahara shirt and was glad to see that they added plaid designs instead of just the solid colors; much better looking. I do still wish the cut was a little slimmer. At 6' and 175 lbs I realize I'm on the slim side but there are plenty of us around and a slimmer fit would make it much better looking on the casual side and I think they can get away with it as the new version has more stretch than the previous one. I also noticed that the buttons get caught in loose threads, on my old shirt as well as both of my new ones. Not a deal breaker for me but I do notice. Overall these are still great shirts that keep cool on a hot day, dry fast, resist wrinkles and look good doing it. The small chest pockets and hang loop in the back are great touches to keep you ready for anything. I picked up 2 more of these shirts which will see heavy rotation on my 3 month backpacking trip, and I think they're up to the task.
