Shirt worked excellently for about two years of heavy…

Rating: rated 4.5 of 5 stars
Fabric: polyester
Price Paid: $50 on sale

Shirt worked excellently for about two years of heavy use as a field biologist. Very comfortable, breathed well, and was a nice compromise between sturdy feel and lightweight. The right arm eventually disintegrated from getting scratched and cut by branches and briars, as I was swinging machete in dense thickets and fording swamps. I hope to replace the shirt, but it is overpriced at retail price so I will wait until I find a sale.

Overall, best fitting and most functional sun shirt I have come across. The sizing is accurate, and I would recommend buying it to fit comfortably, neither baggy nor snug. I have a 42" chest and the large fits just right. Also, the pockets are very nice and are large enough to hold a small compass and maybe an energy bar or some other sort of do-dad.
