Perfect sizing (I usually think Patagonia fit is perfect) and the quality and finish are outstanding. Use these for running long distances where I need more sun protection than a tank as well as mountain biking. The seams are crazy on these things - no exposed stitching. It is like the heat sealed seams on fancy water resistant rain or ski jackets, but in soft fabric form. When I mountain bike in these it’s like riding naked!


    Unfortunately, this shirt has been very disappointing. I bought it because I normally love Patagonia and it was rated one of the best warm weather running shirts by Gear Patrol recently. The shirt is very very light but it retains moisture more than any other performance shirt I have. I have used it twice, once on a very warm day in the 90s and once on an average day in the 70s. Both times it became completely saturated with sweat halfway through a 5 mile run. It felt like running in one of those old cheap heavy white cotton t shirts by the end of the run. I really wanted to like it as it is not inexpensive but it feels awful running in it.

    I have warn this shirt a couple of times and love it. It fits great, feels good when I am sweating and breathes well. I get Zero restriction when i am running in this shirt. I am 205LBS and 6ft tall and the Large fits perfect.
