Build quality is top notch on this shirt. The vertical pocket allows you to store a map of other item without interfering with a sternum strap - perfect. The horizontal zipped pocket is plenty big as well.
The stretch fabric is superbly accommodating when moving with a pack. The dropped rear hem keeps everything protected from the sun when I scramble, and the rotated seams do exactly as their designed to do. The extended collar section (hidden when worn normally) is the cat's meow. It provides great coverage. I can forego the neck sunblocker! The mesh areas underarm help alot, but I still had a pretty good stink going on after a hot day last weekend.
An anti-odor treatment (silver, cocona?) plus slightly more cooperative buttons (unusual material makes them a little tough to negotiate) would make this the perfect outdoor shirt.
