A breath of fresh air.

When you want to river raft over the weekend and fight back the humidity, wear the lightweight Patagonia Men's Short-Sleeve Steersman Shirt. It’s crafted from breathable organic cotton that wicks away moisture, and it has a crinkle finish that lifts the shirt away from your skin to allow comfortable airflow in hot and humid weather.

Great shirt

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: XL

I love how cool this shirt keeps me on hot days in the sun. The fit is a bit of a slim fit but looks good on my slimmer build. It can get pretty wrinkled and misshappen so I run and iron across every few times I wear it to keep the collar corners for sticking straight up.

Appreciate the review, Marc!

Great shirt, some caveats

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

There's a lot to love about the Patagonia Steersman Shirt. It's very light and very, very cool without sacrificing style. It's a perfect shirt for a bike ride or hike on a warm day. It looks good enough for any casual outing with friends after a day outside. I love the buttons and all of the patterns and color selection. The fit is perfect for me, but I can see how others wouldn't like it as much. I see it as a good balance between slim and traditional fit, but doesn't fall squarely in either. I like this, but can see how some would be frustrated. If you want a purely slim or traditional fit, the Patagonia Steersman Shirt might not be for you. The bad: you are going to be ironing every time you wash, no exception. This isn't a shirt you can wash, dry, and walk out wrinkle free. Don't think hang drying will help. Bottom line is you're either going to iron or you're going to have wrinkles. In all, I recommend the Patagonia Steersman Shirt , but know that the fit can be odd for some and you'll need an iron, especially if you're using it for casual outings.

Perfect For Warm Weather

    This shirt is the perfect shirt for warm days when you need a extra breathable shirt. Super impressed with the fabric, definitely gonna get more of the colors.

    Not really a slim fit

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Size Bought: Medium

    Liked the material. It is certainly thin, but would be welcome on a hot day. Unfortunately, this got returned since it draped on me. Definitely wouldn't consider this a slim fit.

    Perfect for days relaxing in the heat

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    • Size Bought: Large

    Great light weight shirt that is perfect for days spent outside in the heat when tech fabrics and wool are just overkill. Sometimes you do not need to have the fanciest moisture wicking technology that you have never heard of and all you need is a comfortable shirt for sitting on the dock, relaxing on your front porch, or just going out with friends.

    Great Gift!

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size

    I got this shirt as a Christmas present for my step-dad who lives in California and he loves it! Nice, light, breathable material. Loved the color/pattern and it fit him great.

    Steersman line is great for heat

    I have both this and the long sleeve version and they are my favorite 'dress' shirts. Very comfortable, like wearing linen. They do have a tendency to wrinkle so you'll have to iron after washing, and they are a bit loose but that makes air more free flowing.
