Light speed, engage.

Whether it's your daily neighborhood run or a two-week trek in the woods, the Mountain Hardwear Men's Photon Zip T-Shirt will never hold you back. Its long-sleeve design fights off the chill when you set out on the trail early in the morning, while the highly breathable fabric keeps you from overheating during tough ascents. It also wicks sweat and dries rapidly to fend off heat- and comfort-robbing moisture, and it is engineered with stretch to allow easy movement when you're moving fast or shouldering a heavy pack. If things get a little stuffy, unzip the front panel for an instant burst of cooling airflow.

Nice shirt

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

This shirt seemed really nice, but I gave it as a gift and the person wasn’t super excited so I returned it. Blue color was nice in person.

Lightweight Technical Baselayer

    I just got this for my dad and he's stoked to wear it all winter for hiking, skiing, and being outdoors!

    Good value

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    Took on a trek in Africa was invaluable and functional worked as described

    Strange sleeves

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size

    The sleeves on this shirt are super loose, long, and the wrist closure just doesn't exist so that the shirt rides halfway up the back of my hand to my knuckles. I cannot imagine using this shirt for climbing or during cool windy conditions. These are fatal flaws IMO for a performance garment. I have no idea what Mountain Hardwear has in mind for this shirt. The OR Echo is essentially the same shirt with better, though not great, sleeves.

    Absolutely right, Robert 1 I'm returning the same shirt for the same reason . Love BC but this one wasn't designed quite right !
