Swiss Army Shirt

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I own 3 Banditos and I'm pretty much done buying shirts. This does it all! It is an athletic/slim cut and I appreciate that for my size. I only buy Patagonia athletic cut and it hasn't let me down. I've used this under my PFD on multi day raft trips, guided climbers on multi pitch, backpacking (seen in picture), bikepacking and simply around town. It has a great western look, a dress down look and is semi professional looking for that person in the outdoor industry or just wants to go from the crag to the bar and being able to look and feel good. Now that I have 3 different colors, I'm set for a long time with shirts. It's also super light, breathable, dries super fast and eats odor where you don't always get that with other synthetic shirts. Don't look any farther, this is your EVERYTHING shirt.

Perfect shirt for running Ultras

Seems Small

    This shirt was tighter than other Patagonia shirt I have purchased. Will likely return for a larger size.

    Sweet Do-It-All Shirt

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

    40" chest, 32" waist

    I bought this right before a 10-day trip to Italy, and I was super impressed with it. The fit is spot-on, it dries super fast, doesn't smell terrible after a couple wears, looks better than a t, and the vents on the back actually work to let the wind in. This is everything you need for a do-it-all shirt.

    Dad Looks Good!

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

    I got this shirt for my dad for his birthday. I thought it would be great shirt for him to wear to work and straight to the golf course after and he said that it's great for exactly that! It's super thin and technical but doesn't look it. He can dress it up or dress it down. It's super breathable and awesome for really hot summer days where you don't want to have armpit sweat marks. We have a history of melanoma in our family so the sun protection is always a huge plus for us!

    I am always glad that Patagonia makes shirts and pants that are fit a more athletic build. This shirt is no exception. One day I wore this shirt trad climbing then to a work presentation. Pretty well rounded!

    Finally a button up for activity!

    • Size Bought: Medium

    This shirt is insanely light, breathable, and comfortable. I took this shirt on a big multipitch climb and was amazed at how well it fit and kept me cool, all while allowing full range of motion. I also love the snap buttons. Much easier than a regular button up.

    Vented

      This is my go to shirt for hot summer days. The vents in the back provide great ventilation and the fabric is super lightweight and breathable.

      Transitions

      Smooth transition from the trail to the office. Performs good and looks good.

      Wore it for a month...

      ...on the great divide mountain bike route, absolutely love this shirt. The shoulders allow full range of movement and the shirt is light and helps keep you cool. It's pretty pricey but I can't wait to pick up another for fishing and hiking.

      Awesome

      I got one, put it on ,went upstairs and ordered another one. Awesome shirt. Fits folks better with a long torso. It is super comfortable and lightweight and the snap up buttons keep the front from getting snagged on anything.

      This could be the last shirt I ever own

      I do everything in this shirt. The price might turn you off at first, though you will find a way to wear this shirt as much as possible. Once your friends find out that you're wearing it five days a week, you'll admit it because you don't care and it's that amazing. I take this shirt everywhere with me...and even do most of my trail runs in it (have taken it up to 47mi at once). The comfort of this shirt is second to none, and I love how there are small flaps in the back and perforations under the arms to keep me cool on the hottest days.

      Casual look, technical performance

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

      I just got another Patagonia Bandito Shirt (Chambray/Glass Blue, size large) and took it down to Fruita, Colorado for my first desert mountain bike mission of the spring. Like last year's model (which I also have) the fit is true to size, but slightly trim, which gives the shirt a nice look and provides a more technical fit, so there isn't too much material flapping around while Biking/Hiking/Running. The material is soft and wicked very well on my ride. The collar provided great sun protection for my neck and didn't get in the way at all - plus, it's what makes this shirt so versitile as an everyday shirt.

      everyday all day shirt

        This is a super versatile shirt that works great on the trails, and looks great before and after. I've always mountain bike in tech T's or bike jerseys, but last summer this shirt quickly became my favorite riding shirt. It's a nice lightweight fabric that breathes and vents well, with a collar that can give you a little extra sun protection. It is a little on the slim fit side, which works well on the bike, but some people might want to size up.
