A wicked great shirt
December 31, 2011

I have several of these shirs, long sleeve, short and sleeveless. They are super comfortable, look good both during and after a workout or activity. They wick the moisture as they're supposed to. They are true to size, and indestructible. They don't hold up well to a second wearing if you are in a pinch with laundry day. They will smell. But an easy rinse and a quick dry will solve that one. Nice fashionable colors, too.

December 13, 2011

I bought two (one black and one white)of these little shirts and I love them both. They have a very flattering feminine cut and are extremely comfortable. The only downside is that the white shirt is somewhat transparent, so you need to wear a pretty bra underneath..

February 26, 2012

This is a great top. Nearly weightless, cool and comfy on a hot day or as base layer. I normally wear size M in this brand, but had to return for L. Great for travel.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance

Love this shirt
September 09, 2009

I have other performance shirts from other vendors but this is my favorite. Its lightweight, comfortable on the hottest days and never smells weird. It is by far, the lightest weight shirt out of all of the performance shirts in this price range.

great summerweight T-shirt
September 20, 2006

I bought 2 of these for my wife. She absolutely loved them. The fit is true and the shirt is excellent for working out and classy enough to wear when you 'go out'....wicked,indeed...

Great layering piece
March 13, 2010

Just took this shirt on a very wet trip on the AT. It was a great layering piece. Kept me warm and dry!

never fails!

Great wicking power!
May 21, 2007

This is a fantastic shirt to run in. It provides superior wicking ability and remains dry and cool even after taking a 10-mile run in 80 degree weather. The only drawbacks about this shirt is that it snags easily and lighter colors may be sheer. The second drawback really makes no difference, if you wear a sports bra underneath. Overall, I highly recommend owning at least one of these shirts. I own four now in different colors - two are medium and two are large. I wear the large ones when I want extra room and air circulation. For comparison purposes, I normally wear a 6-8 bottom and 8-10 top. So, I'd say that the shirts run very true to size.

Light weight and fast-drying
March 09, 2010

Fast-drying and highly breathable. Runs a size small. I'm normally a small, but in this shirt a medium fits perfectly!

Lightweight and Flattering Fit
March 01, 2010

I love the weight of this shirt. It's perfect for running on a hot day. I also like that it doesn't wrinkle so it's a great shirt for the gym bag!

light weight, breathable, fits great!
October 19, 2006

This is a terrific shirt for all things active and relaxed too. The material is soft and comfortable and the fit is great. Ever so slightly shear so I recommend a dark color. I highly recommend this shirt!

Great All-Around Outdoor Shirt
September 13, 2010

I bought this shirt for a trip to Central America, but found myself wearing it more than any other workout shirt for training before I even left! I ordered three of them and they can be used multiple times before needing to be washed, hold up well during heavy use (three shirts for long backpacking trips), and fit well.


December 25, 2009

Could not be happier with product. I wear it for Yoga class and is very comfortable.

Great workout shirt!
July 07, 2010

This is my one - Very light weight, doesn't wrinkle, seems to wear well and nice color. Does what it says - wicks moisture so when I wear it while riding my bike to work, I don't get soggy and smelly The length is good (for me - I'm short), size is perhaps slightly small, but not un-wearable.

length is kinda short, very loose fit
January 04, 2010

see above

Great running & workout shirt
February 05, 2010

Feels like you're wearing nothing. VERY light, wicks nicely, fits well, looks good. I have 3 of the regular wicked shirts, which I love. This one is a smoother fabric, and a bit longer. I'm really happy with it and would recommend them highly for any activity.

April 22, 2008

Shirt is very light and packable, comfy and just all around fantastic.

Great work-out shirt!
August 06, 2010

I wear this to Pilates class and love it. It moves with you, breathes and looks nice all at the same time. Also a great layering shirt for hiking.

Hand Wash
August 08, 2009

These shirts are super comfy but be careful they snag easy.


Nice Shirt
February 26, 2010

Great shirt to wear hiking or walking the dogs. Bought 2 fit real nice.


Great shirt for under sweaters or for sports/hiking
January 11, 2010

This is a very nice fitting and nice weight shirt to layer or for hiking/sports. I have 2 and will buy more.

Casual, Travel, or Workout Wear
March 08, 2012

Fantastic fabric. Wicks away moisture and super soft to the touch. Very lightweight without being too clingy. Bought in both black and white, Medium. 5'1", 115 lbs., 34D chest. Usually am in between small and medium, but wanted a looser fit so went up and am glad. This hangs very nicely without looking baggy in the torso or arms. The white one arrived with a small snag near the neckline, not worth the trouble to send back but does give one reason to wonder if more snags are in the near future. Rolls up nicely in a suitcase without wrinkling. Especially appreciate the versatility of this shirt--can be worn to workout in, but could also easily be paired with a skirt and sandals for daywear.

Pros: Ease of use, Great value, great fabric

I wear this a lot when traveling
August 16, 2010

Easy to wash and dry, doesn't wrinkle, rolls up in a little ball for packing. Very light weight (can snag easily if that bothers you)and sizing is true. Did not get a "bad smell", even with vigorous sweating and exercise.

Nice lightweight T
April 27, 2010

Very good light fabric.Made well.Ran really small though so I had to give it to a friend since the sale price was so cheap not worth shipping back,lucky break for my friend!!

very light weight
February 07, 2009

This shirt worked well on my Mexico trip, however, I think it is sized a bit small. I wear an 8 or 10 shirt, but usually get mediums. This shirt was snugger than I like.


a MUST HAVE for summer workouts!!!
August 08, 2010

I wouldn't be able to make it through these ridiculously humid, New England summers if it weren't for these MH Wicked Lite t's and tanks! They are a must have for hot & humid days. Extremely light and breatheable. Wicks moisture very well w/out getting stinky throughout the day at all. Perfectly tailored- not too tight and not loose. You'll be fine with sizing if you stick to the size chart. I measure at the heavier end of a small(35/27/37),5'7" 125lbs and the small fits me like it was custom made for me. It's semi-fitted w/out being clingy-I like my shirts tailored and fitted, but don't like them too tight around my waist/belly. All of the wicked lite shirts fit the same(even the double wicked lite). If you're on the fence, definately give these shirts a try- you won't regret it! Hope this helps!

Wicked nice shirts

I have worn this a few times at the gym and as the name goes , extremely light and wicks sweat well. I am 5'2 and 116 pounds and small fits well.

Pros: Great design, Performance, Great value

June 22, 2007

Perfect for warm weather. Hiking or just casual wear. I also have the long sleeve version and use it when I have had too much sun, but still want to be cool. These fit smaller than some other Mountain Hardwear products I have purchased, like fleecey tops and jackets.

overall they're ok
October 09, 2006

like the fit, fabric is a little rougher than I expected. The material pulls very easily also, didn't care for that. Overall I do like the shirts.

Too long
March 25, 2010

The material was great, color was fine, but I bought it because another review said they ran a little shorter than other shirts, but it was still too long for me


I like it
March 11, 2010

I like the color, looks like in the web, light weight, comfortable.. I would recommend!

Good travel shirt
July 25, 2008

Nice colors however they are much brighter and more vibrant than they display on the web page. Good wicking ability. Dries quick. Comfy and soft. Not synthetic feeling at all. In order to get a length to cover your tummy you need to order a size up which tends to make them a little baggy around the chest and in the sleeves. But this is good for travelling anyway beacause it allows you to wear a long sleeve shirt underneath if need be.

Wonderful in most respects, except odor control
June 13, 2012

I purchased a number of these tops in different colors. I was very excited about finding relaxed fit, quick drying, practically weightless, non-wrinkling t-shirts in great colors. I do like them, but the PROBLEM I have had is that they seem to trap and amplify body odors. I have not had this problem since the very first polypropolene underwear came out years ago. I find that even during the first wearing, I can detect my body odor. These are the only shirts I experience this with. This may have something to do with my chemistry but it is certainly a drawback.

Pros: Great design, Ease of use, Cons: poor odor control

great shirt
August 09, 2010

I got this shirt for backpacking but find myself wearing it for much more. Wicks away moisture great and comfortable!

Great shirt for any outdoor activity
May 25, 2008

Wicks moisture away, dries quickly, weighs nothing, what else you need?

Great but too short
May 21, 2009

Everything about this shirt is great, except the length. It comes down only to the top of my hip, and I just prefer a longer shirt. Maybe one size up would be better.

Awesome shirt!
March 05, 2008

I love this tee-shirt. It is light and airy and very comfortable. I bought it on sale so there weren't a lot of colors available in my size. I got the Lagoon blue one. It's a very pretty color, like a gray-blue. Someone mentioned they run small, that was not my experience. I wear a medium and it is very roomy. I ordered a large and it was huge on me.

Looks good and is great for fitness activities.
March 24, 2010

Got 2 for my wife and she likes how they look, fit and feel.

July 21, 2009

i've only used it once, so it's actually not accurate for me to rate on durability. but from one day of hiking, it still looks good. i understand now how wicking moisture material works. how comfortable even when i was climbing uphills in the 80 degree weather! love it.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value

October 21, 2009

Lightweight and nice and soft fabric. MH also offers them in very flattering colors and by now I have 5 of them and can not praise them enough. They are comfortable in a hot climate, dry fast and do not take a lot of space in your luggage. Highly recommended!

Excellent product, best purchase ever
August 31, 2012

Typical mountain hardwear product. I am 5'4" 107 lbs and bought a medium. It hugs the body but not tight and the length is mid hip. It is not a short tshirt like abercrombie and Fitch but it covers you well from the sun. It folds into a tiny ball and washes well and dries fast. I bought a black and white one and will order more. Some reviewers comment about the short length. I think that's the old stock on sale and I also had that problem but not this time, paying more of course.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value

The Perfect T-Shirt!! You'll want them in every color...
September 25, 2007

These tees are light, soft, comfortable, wicking, sun-protective, easy to care for - just wash, and hang dry (you should air-dry them to preserve the wickability). I originally bought 3 for a warm-weather trip; now I have several more. You will never even think of wearing a cotton t-shirt after wearing these! They are both functional and attractive, and they coordinate wonderfully with other MH items, like the Mesa shirt, Canyon shirt. They are quite form-fitting, so get one size larger if this is an issue.


fits great. good in hot weather.

What you would expect from MH
May 30, 2012

I bought this for my fiance for hiking and outdoor activities. She likes it very much. It's an average size small for sport shirts, which could be a little small on some people. It's light weight, and cool. The quality is what you would expect from Mountain Hardware. We have a bunch of their clothing and gear and haven't been disappointed yet. Shipping was also very speedy. Overall, great product and great shopping experience.

I really wanted to like it, but I was disappointed how short this shirt was and sent it back. I thought the quality was good and the style was flattering, but way too short for my taste. I am 5'3", 110 lbs, 34A and the shirt fell just eblow my belly button. Other than the length I would recommend.

Fits Great

This shirt looks great,nicely cut. Runs a bit small. Quick dry, very comfortable. Will definately buy more!

Bought this shirt for my long outdoor runs. I have a hard time finding shirts for my long torso and this shirt was definitely long enough. Very comfortable and cool. Will buy more!

I bought this shirt for my wife. She is 5'4" and about 130lbs. A medium fit her fine. The shirt is very light weight and will be used for hiking. She would prefer if the shirt was a little longer but I thought it fit perfectly.

No surprises
February 12, 2012

This shirt is as advertised. The fit is true to size. I usually wear a 12 and the Lg fits well. I got it in the blue which is a bright blue; would prefer it to be a little muted in color. I have not washed it yet, but do not expect any shrinkage since the material feels like a synthetic. My only concern is how it will hold up this summer. The material looks like it may snag, but I do not know yet if this will actually happen. Overall, I would recommend this shirt, esp if you are looking for something to wick moisture. I like wearing white in the summer, but feel that this material would be too see-through in a light color.

Pros: Great design, Performance

Love it!
May 10, 2007

I love the cut of these shirts! Flattering and functional! They dry quickly and provide UV protection.

Very light and breathable!
April 30, 2007

An excellent shirt to use in warmer weather or if you need a base layer that wicks away sweat. It is featherweight and fits comfortably, hitting at the hip at a flattering length but long enough to sit well under my backpack.

Great workout shirt
April 24, 2010

I bought this shirt for hiking this summer, but wear it to the gym too. It's extremely light weight and breathable. It washes well and seems to be holding up well too. The color is interesting, but not ugly. Overall, I like it.

March 17, 2012

I LOVE this brand and have more than ten in different sleeve lengths and colors. I use where them under a no iron shirt when I travel. They wash up great in the sink and usually dry in 30 minutes or less. They absorb all the sweat and leave my shirt clean and fresh. If I get too warm I can take the shirt off and just wear the T. I do buy them in a size bigger than my normal. I usually wear a small, but I buy these in medium. They do snag after time, but for my purpose they are still great.

I took this shirt on a backcountry trip as a baselayer. It was fantastic at wicking away moisture from my body and kept me dry. Best of all, it didn't smell terrible after 5 days on the trail.!

short shirt but great wicking abilities
May 08, 2008

I got a size small and should of ordered a size up. The shirt was a bit short (cut off above my hip) and was a bit uncomfortable to run in because I felt embarrassed. But it did keep the sweat away.

April 29, 2009

I use these for work (I'm a college teacher). They look and feel great under blazers or sweaters, or on their own (I wish the latest version didn't have seams down the front of the shoulders, though). They do snag.

Great shirt
January 05, 2011

The fabric is so lightweight and cool, and it wicks sweat and dries out so quickly. I wear it on hot, humid days, and it keeps me feeling cool and dry. It's also great for traveling, because you can wash it at night and hang it to dry, and it will dry out by the morning. It is also wrinkle resistant. The fit is true to size...I'm 5'4", 120 lbs and a small is great. I would definitely recommend this shirt for warm and hot-weather activities.

Pros: Great design, Performance

Great light weight, comfortable shirt
December 12, 2009

Fabric is soft with just enough give so that it feels just right. Roomy & length is perfect. Will pack up easily and be great for hiking. Will be buying another in a different color. I'm a medium and sizing was right on.

Great shirt for spinning!
June 06, 2009

I'm just not a tank top person - not even at the gym. This shirt is lightweight with excellent wicking -- and fits nicely. I like the shorter length as I"m only 5'4 and some shirts are cut WAY too long. Wish there were more colors...

my fav sports shirt
June 15, 2008

I ride horses in this shirt. Even in the middle of a South Florida summer, I love this shirt. It cleans up well, dries quickly, and is light weight. Yes, it does run short (more in the back), but that works for me because I'm on the horse. Long shirts get caught under your seat while you're trying to ride. Mine have little side pockets on one side as well. Mine are several years old now and starting to look it, but have held up well. I am 5'9" and weight approx. 185 and wear a large shirt just fine.
