good T-shirt to wear around
May 23, 2011

I bought 3. They fit me very well like a slim-fit cotton T-shirt. I prefer them to the cotton T-shirts as they are lighter, softer, wick moisture much faster and with UPF sun protection. But they wear quickly.

Slim fit, but hangs great.
June 16, 2011

Had bought a pile of the capilene 1 shirts this year, only to find they cling to you in the real hot weather. Fine if you are super fit, bit awkward otherwise. This shirt on the other hand wicks well and hangs more like a comfy cotton tee. The fit is slim, i wear XL in the Cap 1 (fits like a t-shirt) and XL fit perfect in this. More on order as soon as budget permits!

Awesome, but...
May 19, 2011

I agree with the other reviewers on the Patagonia website about the graphics. This shirt deserves better graphics. In terms of the fit, it is almost perfect. I'm 165, 5'9" and the medium fits me great except for the shoulders. The organic t's fit me perfect but for these, I've realized that the shoulder seam is two inches too short, making the shirt a bit uncomfortable especially when active. I'm not sure, maybe this is how it is supposed to fit. I was planning to purchase all of them, long sleeve and short sleeve but I think I'll stop at 4.

Great Shirt
August 03, 2011

Highly recommended. Dries super fast. Great wicking. Perfect weight for backpacking or fishing. I will never bring another cotton shirt camping with me again.

Pros: Great design, dries fast

Favorite t-shirt!
May 04, 2011

"I picked up a couple of these and I absolutely love them! They feel like the softest, comfiest cotton t-shirt but they dry quickly and stay pretty light. I found them to run a little small; I had to size up one size from my normal t-shirt size. I've also noticed the white shirt is a little transparent... Still these shirts are great."

Best T-shirts for warm weather
October 13, 2011

They looks like same old laglan sleeve T-shirts. They works like the technical base layers. I would like to say good-bye to cotton T-shirts for good. I think they are true to sizes, but smaller than most of cotton T-shirts from Patagonia.

Pros: Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use

Great shirt for outdoor
January 11, 2012

Comfortable and keeps me cool under the Carribean sun. Fits a bit small, but I expected it to be anyways. Fast drying and a bit of sun protection as well. Another good reliable product from Patagonia. Recommended~

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