Terrific, cool sun protectionI bought this shirt specifically for an early June trip through several National Parks (happy 100th to them!) in the desert southwest. The light, soft, cool fabric worked like a charm sun-wise and let me skip slathering SPF 50 all over my entire torso, which was a relief--hate that gooped-up, pore-clogged feeling but I burn in a flash. I also washed it in a sink a few times. Easy-peasy and very quick drying. Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that after the first washing, every seam puckered , especially on the collar, so the shirt always looked slept in, not fresh. There's no fix: the instructions say, "Do not iron." Also, I'm pretty small (5'1", 120 lbs) and it took a size large to get it just loose enough to wear as a light jacket over a tank top. The small was basically skin tight and the medium was clingy. Still, I expect to get a lot more wear out of the shirt this summer. And I appreciated Moosejaw's great price!
