by BearGrillsfromToo baggyI found this shirt to be cut too loose, probably akin to what would be termed a "relaxed" fit in other brands. Returned it due to the loose fit, which is a shame because it was very comfortable and light without feeling cheap. Would have been great for travel or casual wear during the summer.

by BTudorfromNew version is a let downI have a previous version of this shirt and love it - possibly my favorite outdoor/travel shirt. I just ordered two more of these and was disappointed when I tried them on to learn the following:
1. Like already mentioned, there are loose threads on all of the button holes.
2. The design and material has changed. There is no longer a sunglasses loop, the back vent is no longer velcro, the underarm vents are larger, and the pockets are designed differently. This isn't necessarily bad, just different.
3. The deal breaker is that I am a size small, and the previous version of this shirt fit perfectly. The two new size smalls that I ordered are varying sizes. One is comparable to a medium and the other closer to a large. Although both say small. I'm not sure what someone who is a small should do anymore and I wonder how large the other sizes are as these shirts do not feel like they are designed for someone who is even slightly active.
I think I will try to return these to the store to see if they might have any of the previous versions or if there might be one there that actually fits me. Beware if you are ordering this based on previous experiences with this shirt.

by IsamuMfromNice shirt, but the sewing could be betterI 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 plaid version) is that the sewing of the buttonholes could be better. Practically every buttonhole had loose threads that would catch when unbuttoning the shirt.

by Greaserfrommakes my job easierI recently bought a few of the tech shirts and they are great. I work outside in the heat and because these shirts are well ventilated I can stay cool all day.

by Image MakerfromGreat for warm climatesThese shirts are comfortable in hot, humid areas like Costa Rica. They dry very quickly and can be washed easily in a sink while traveling. Wrinkle minimally.The long sleeve version provides better sun protection. I miss the little loop on the pocket that held my glasses on prior versions.
