This is not a premium fabric

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: medium

Construction is OK, Fabric is horrible, the design is questionable, especially around the neck and the weird collar... The fit is somewhat awkward.

My size: 41 shoulder, 31 waist, 16 neck. The medium was too large for me. The sleeve opening was too big. This runs bigger than Regular fit.

(I don't take or add stars for fit, that's subjective)

Hi Paul, I am sorry this didn't work for you. You are right about this not being "premium" fabric, and it doesn't carry a premium price either. It is a good tech T for $39. We do have other tech tees that are more "tech" if you will - like the Octane, for example. but it is $59.

The Echo fabric is light, wicking and quick dry . Actually it's one of our top sellers. Still, I am sorry it didn't work out for you!

My workhorse tee for very sport

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

This is my workhorse tee. I do everything in it: alpine climbing, hiking, climbing gym, lifting, running, paddle boarding, even spring boarding. It's lightweight, durable, and wicks amazing well even for a heavy sweater. I buy a few every year but can't bear to part with the old ones I've abused as they still hold up. Buy a bunch of these, get the long sleeve and hoody versions as well.

Super Breathable and Comfortable!

The Echo T-Shirt is the lightest material shirt I have worn. The AirVent fabric is super breathable and is almost like not wearing a shirt at all. I use it kayaking, splitboarding, biking, and for everyday use and found that I sweat less in it. It's amazing on a hot day because the wind blows right through and cools you down. The UPF 15 sun protection will also help keep the sun off you. I will be buying more of this shirt!

If you like wearing plastic ...

    Yes, I know these shirts are polyester but they 'feel' very much like plastic. While very light and breathing, I could not get over the fact they felt very much like plastic. Very disappointed. Shirts were returned.

    Comfortable and Functional

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XL

    This shirt treated me so well for my trip to Moab, UT where I spent plenty of time in the sun mountain biking and hiking. When I hit the trails it kept me cool and protected from the sun. If I was biking anywhere with thorns or a bunch of tree branches I would wear a bike jersey but for the desert it was perfect. For my trip I spent 6 days straight in this shirt with plenty of exercise and it kept me mostly smell free.

    Great shirt for high activity in warm/sunny conditions. Also a good shirt for hitting the gym on any day.

    These Are Great Athletic Shirts

    Fantastic shirts for running, hiking, under layering, working out, kicking around in hot weather, etc. They are ultra light weight, wick really well and don't constrict your movement at all. I have 2 and will get more.

    Thank you, Mike. My brother has a couple and loves them as well!

    Very Nice!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size

    This shirt is true to size, and true to all of the features in the description. I got it in hot sauce/redwood, and really like the bright red. It breathes, it's light, and it's comfortable. No complaints here!
