Great shirt, less stink
By Logan August 14, 2012
I bought this shirt in preparation for a July trip to Denali. When I first got it in the mail, I put it on immediately and was surprised how itchy it was. So I looked at the reviews again and saw that the more you wash it, the softer it gets. This is VERY true. I wore it 3 days and 2 nights while in the park, putting it through bus rides, long hikes and sleeping in it. It was cooler than expected during the day and warmer than expected at night. I sweat a ton and usually start attracting flies within hours of perspiring, but this shirt somehow stifled my usually stank self. This impressed me a ton...by far the best part of this shirt. The only con that I could find was that the back started to wear in the form of, what I call, clumps (those annoying, tiny balls of cloth that form on clothes that start wearing in a certain area). I'm hoping these go away with successive washes.
Sizing: I'm a stocky guy that usually is between a medium and a large for most shirts. I bought a large and it fits great along the midsection and a little tight in the shoulders (which I don't mind on long trips/hikes). It's a little lengthy, but not so much that it was annoying.
All-in-all a great shirt.
