Favorite shirt, extremely delicate
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: XL
I own 3 of these. I love these shirts so much that I'm still wearing them despite being full of holes.
When it was new, I would just wear this like a normal shirt around town. I've also used it on multi-day hikes, biking, and all sorts of adventures. It washes easy (I wash on cold and hang to dry) and doesn't smell even after 5 days of sweating in it. Also packs nice and small and seems to keep me cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
The downside? I find it incredibly delicate, especially for the cost. All of them have developed holes from the various rub points on my bags or catching them on branches or getting sat on by my cat. Still a great shirt, but it means I can't wear it around as much as I used to and so I pretty much exclusively use them for hiking/biking and other sports-like activities where presentation matters less.
Additional recommendation: I'd store them in zip-lock bags with plenty of cedar. Being Merino, an additional way you can get holes is from moths, which a friend of mine discovered the hard way.
