This is one awesome shirt. It's made with 100% organic cotton. Once of a kind textile design. Most of their patterns design is unique. Excellent in hot weather. The cut is very relaxing and comfortable. What more can you ask. It can be pricy but if you remember to pick a few during sale, you can save a bunch and have one of the best summer shirts.
Really nice 'Airy' shirt for the summer, originally bought a large but it seemed to run a bit slim and shorter than he wanted (especially since he would just throw it in the dryer-I was afraid it just shrink smaller) so I bought the XL, unfortunately seemed to be the same length but with a few inches of added width...so we just kept it. I bought the Salida color/print & matched pretty right on to what appeared online.
I don't really understand all of the flack this shirt is getting for the sizing. I suppose if you were congealed in a laboratory in Uzbechistan, and have the body-type of a mongoloid centaur, with duck feet and gynecomastia. It may be a little uncomfortable, but then again if you looked like that, you'd probably uncomfortable in most anything. Don't believe the critics, a GREAT SHIRT! Keeps you cool all day, wicks great, smells good, beautiful colors that stay vivid wash after wash, and its P-Gonia, so you know it will last. Great product!!
"buy this shirt. now. no questions asked. its great. seriously."
personally, i prefer colder weather. i can always put on more layers to get comfortable. unfortunately, during warm weather, there is only so much you can take off, and even still, your still pretty hot. this shirt is about as close to wearing nothing as you will find. it looks good, feels good, and packs light. it also drys quickly, so washing it in the sink works well, should that become necessary.
Terrific shirts except for the new sizing. The point of these shirts is coolness and comfort. I have worn them for 15 years, but last year they changed to a "trim fit" and continue this year. I have worn XLs forever and the occasional L but now the XL is tight around the chest and gut so I had to go to XXL. The XXL sleeve seam is 2 inches down my arm and the bottom of the shirt hits me mid-thigh. I have had to get them shortened at a tailor. Try these on before purchasing. The store where I purchase these said Patagonia messed up the women's sizing too. I love the A/C fabrics except for some that fade really fast in the armpits.
This is an idea hot weather shirt. The weave does two great things-- it encourages air circulation and it adds enough texture to the shirt that it looks okay if you don't iron it. I've gotten a lot of complements on it. I've also been mocked for my puny amount of chest hair when I wear it. The one downside is that the shirt is a bit short.
"Awesome shirt; breathable, eye catching color(s), after first wash and dry---even better broken in!"
Great travel shirt (as most of the short sleeved patagonial shirts). Very breathable, everyone will stop you and ask where you got it or just comment on it, the fit is great, one chest pocket to put stuff in----as I was boarding the airplane; the stewardass said that shirt pocket's a perfect place to put my phone number!
