This shirt is very nice. Same with other reveiwers, I found it to run a little larger. I wear a 15.5 - 32/33 dress shirt and the medium here fits big on me. Not so much I'd trade it for a small though.
The material is excellent and super light weight. Its almost see-through, so if you don't like that, this isn't for you. As the title of my review says, this is my go-to shirt for situations where I'd rather not have a shirt on, but don't want to get sun-burned and/or don't want my pack on bare skin.
I got the Agave shirt and really like it. I needed something lite weight to take with me on my trip in late May through early June. This shirt looks good and is very lite weight. I wore it to work the other day and got nothing but compliments on the color and the look. I even had someone ask where I got it. The shirt does run a little big. I first got an XL but had to return it for a L. But other then that the shirt has been great.
Bought several to take on a June trip to the Caribbean. Light and breezy enough to keep me from overheating, but enough fabric to keep me from broiling. Any breeze at all and it wicked sweat away and stayed pretty dry. Coming back to buy a less colorful option for summer fishing.
Sizing was ok for me; I normally wear a 16.5 x 35"shirt (vary between L and XL depending on brand) and the L fit me perfectly in this shirt.
Great shirt, keeps me cool in all conditions. Would be a 5 but the sizing is a bit off in my opinion. I think the cut runs large. I am a medium in everything but the small fit my chest and shoulders... the sleeves are a little short but I can live with that since they are rolled up 99% of the time. If you are on the cusp, size down!
The ExOfficio Reef Runner Lite Shirt - Long-Sleeve is your standard fare from Ex-officio, that is to say it's better than most of the rest out there for style with comfort. The nylon weave is thin enough to make it feel like you aren't wearing a shirt (and this is long sleeve here), but was very surprised at the durability. I also like the zip pockets for the chest.
The fit left me a bit puzzled though as I am usually a L size with Ex-O but the large was way too long in the torso. I'm 5'11" with a 33" inseam so I do have a bit of a shorter torso, but wider shoulders. If this is your size, size down a bit and see if the tightness in the chest/shoulders is tolerable or not.
Very nice fabric, but runs big. I would recommend you go down a size. Not the same with all ex-officio shirts, though. I ordered another one and the medium fit just fine. It doesn't say in the description, but there is a 1 inch stripe of almost see-through fabric running down both outside seams of the chest area. A little too weird for my tastes, but I'm sure it would keep you cool! I am returning it for this reason.
