Recent Short Sleeve Performance Top Reviews

Terramar Men's Helix Crew Tee

rated 3 of 5 stars A lightweight, inexpensive shirt, the Helix works well for many outdoor activities as it has a comfortable fit and breathes extremely well. On the other side, the durability is sub-par and the odor-fighting claims fall a bit short. The low cost negates these factors and makes for a great backup or low impact/low durable-activity shirt. I’d recommend this for activities such as bike riding, going to the gym, trail running, or everyday wear. Terramar states that this shirt is an “athlete’s dream”… Full review

Vargo Slag Short-Sleeve Shirt

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Vargo Slag is a lightweight, short-sleeve tee which works well as an all-purpose shirt, though it does have a trim fit design. The biggest claim for this shirt is its TiFusion (fabric infused with Titanium) technology which allows the fabric to dry quickly and reduce that classic “trail stench.” I’ve found that the Slag meets my expectations of being quick drying and also smelling fresher longer than my other (both similar and different fabric types) shirts. If you’re active and prefer… Full review

Fjallraven Abisko Vent Shirt

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Lyocell shirt for hot weather w/ventilation opening on the back and mesh gussets under the arms. A nice lyocell shirt for hot weather, but if you sweat a lot (like me) then it becomes transparent (I have it in beige color). This causes the -0.5 star considering MSRP. Breathability is good as moisture wicking too, and it dries quickly. Ventilation is good as it has ventilation opening on the back yoke and mesh gussets under the arms. Construction is excellent, but I have no info about durability… Full review

Icebreaker Sonic Short Sleeve Crewe

rated 4 of 5 stars Lightweight merino wool. Soft, comfortable and no stink after days in the backcountry. The Icebreaker Sonic short sleeve shirt is soft to the touch, lightweight, and durable. There was no evidence of abrasion after wearing this shirt with a backpack for many miles. It was very breathable when exercising, I never felt like I was overheating. It dried quickly on the body and kept me comfortably warm as temperatures cooled.  The shirt is well constructed, seams are finished well, and tags perforated… Full review

Sierra Designs Short Sleeve Pack Polo

rated 5 of 5 stars I have hiked in hundreds of different shirts, baselayers, fishing shirts, sleeveless monstrosities, they all kind of work just fine. The Pack Polo is more than fine, it is AWESOME!! It stretches, it breathes, it layers, and it doesn't look ridiculous!! This shirt is ideal for the adventure traveler, hiker, backpacker, or bike commuter who wants something technical, yet presentable. While wearing a pack or while bumming around town, the Pack Polo fits comfortably in the arm pits and mid section,… Full review

Montane Shark Ultra Tee

rated 5 of 5 stars The Montane Shark Ultra Tee is a most impressive garment! It fits well, it breathes very well, it remains virtually odor free, and it wears like iron. Although it was designed for trail running I highly recommend it, without reservation, for any athletic outdoor activity and particularly as a base layer. Features: The Montane Shark Ultra Tee is a garment designed for Mountain Running, Trail Running, and Mountain Marathons. It is made of a synthetic hyper stretch fabric that Montane calls Quartz… Full review

Salomon Men's Trail T

rated 4 of 5 stars Very lightweight and well made shirt. I bought two of these in the medium size, which turned out to be a little too small in the chest and length. That would be my only critique. The shirts are very light, wick the sweat well, and are very comfortable. I highly recommend these shirts, just pick one size larger. Full review

Sugoi Pace Short-Sleeve T-Shirt

rated 4 of 5 stars Super comfortable warm weather hiking shirt. Breathes great, dries fast. Years ago, when I got serious about hiking, I tried all of the latest and greatest synthetic hiking shirts. They really didn't cut it for me. They always felt hot and stuffy, and I never really felt comfortable. Then I discovered merino wool shirts, and became a big fan. But having gotten into road cycling in the last few years, and having purchased a number of really comfortable jerseys, it seemed that synthetics had come… Full review

L.L.Bean Coolweave Technical Fishing Shirt, Short-Sleeve

rated 4 of 5 stars I am not a fisherman, but this shirt has become my "go-to" shirt for day hikes and canoeing. It is comfortable, cool, has UPF+50 sun protection, a zippered pocket, and other features I like. It is a bit pricier than my t-shirts, but I think I may be purchasing another in a different color. I have the short sleeve version of the shirt—it does come in a long sleeve version, which I may consider in the future. The fit is relaxed, and the fabric does not cling, even while hiking in hot and muggy conditions. Full review
