Very comfortable. True to size. Lost a button immediately off one, and I know from another I owned that it will wear and get a bit thread-bare after awhile, but overall would buy again without hesitation.

Very Comfortable
March 12, 2012

This is the most comfortable shirt I have ever owned. The knock is the durability. If you wash the shirt like your girlfriend washes her undies the shirt will wear fine. This means Agitator washing machines must be set on delicate. I have a collection of different colors like I used to collect Hermes ties in my younger, more foolish, days.

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

This is my favorite shirt
February 18, 2010

I have this shirt in another color too. It's quick dry, you can de-wrinkle it easily and it looks great. I wear it as a dress shirt (I live in Colorado).

Casual and stylish
June 07, 2013

I have a half a dozen of these Desert Pucker shirts. Really like how comfortable they are and the understated style of the design. It's nice how many color selections they have. The one drawback to this shirt is it has a tendency to fray at the sleeve cuff and bottom hem. To get the most life out of the shirt, hang dry (they dry very quickly, no ironing needed) and don't use a dryer. I purchased this new shirt to see if Royal Robbins has improved the quality.

Desert pucker causes no puckering!
August 14, 2013

The Royal Robbins Desert Pucker short-sleeved men's shirt is a delight from first wearing. To me, the original feel was something like chamois, which is fine, but the comfort of the shirt I like even more after first washing. It requires no ironing if one removes it from the dryer promptly. The shirt fit is in accordance with the sizing label¬ólarge for me - 6'-1", 205#. It appears very durable and very well made, and it dries quickly. I especially like the straight hem and always wear the shirt not tucked. The length is not at all skimpy. The pocket on the shirt provides a separate compartment for pen or pencil, which is also a plus. I have bought it primarily for an extended trip so that I can wash and dry it easily without having to iron. I highly recommend this shirt for comfort and durability.

shirt for my husband who hates to shop
June 21, 2012

My husband had purchased one of these shirts three years ago and has worn it to pieces. He asked me if I could find him another one because he loved the way it felt. I am the "expert" shopper in the family, so I got on line and started looking. I found the shirt at Altrec. I was really pleased with how quickly they shipped the order. We received it today and he is already wearing it. I would definitely purchase from this site again.

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

Bought 3 of these...lasted 10 weeks. Fraying started @ the hem, then the shoulder seams. Internet reviews show this a common problem, so it's not my washer. I have Costco shirts that held up better, for half the price. Too bad, it was a nice shirt while it lasted.

Desert Pucker Shirt
April 20, 2013

I bought this shirt for a couple of reasons: 1. The shirt looks good and does not wrinkle. No need to take it to the dry cleaner, just throw it in the washer or hand wash it in the sink, hang it up to dry and you are good to go. 2. The price was great! I needed a nice looking shirt that was not going to break the bank account but provide nice features. To sum it up: Great looking shirt, comfortable, easy to maintain and great price.

I previously bought this shirt and ripped it the first time I wore it. I continued to wear it casually and really enjoyed the shirt. It's a great shirt and I'm happy to have one without the rip.

Great shirt
October 16, 2011

Was looking for a summer shirt that was somewhat dressy (i.e., appropriate for a reasonably nice restaurant) yet good for traveling -- this shirt fits the bill perfectly. I liked this and the San Juan shirt so much, I also got the long sleeve versions!

comfortable, nice, not wash/dry wrinkle resistant
July 09, 2010

This is a nice comfortable cool shirt. After wash/hang dry it needs ironing, so it is not suited for travel wash/hang-dry/wear. I will enjoy it after ironing.

Love this shirt
February 16, 2010

I purchased this one as a replacement for an identical shirt I simply wore out because I liked it so much. It's a great travel shirt, light and easy to wash by hand, dries quickly and is nice enough looking that you wouldn't feel out of place wearing it for dinner.


Very comfortable and cool

Looks good and wears well, and keeps me cool on hot days-- more so than what you might expect from a fabric that's still strong.

versatile and durable
July 21, 2012

I just purchased my third Dessert Pucker shirt. These shirts go well with shorts, jeans or casual slacks. They are nicely tailored, have the drape of a silk shirt (but are twice as durable), and they launder easily without the the need for ironing.....which also makes them great for traveling. Moreover, buying them and other products from Altrec makes for a pleasant shopping experience.

My Favorite Shirt
August 01, 2011

I have 3 Royal Robbins shirts and they are my favorite when goiing on trips. They pack well, are comfortable and I especially like that they have a shirt pocket that fits my cell phone perfectly and a pen if necessary. Whether hiking or going out to dinner it is usually the first shirt I want to put on. I have had one for several years and it has held up well.

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