SunShade Shirt, Long Sleeve
I bought this to protect my arms in sunny weather and to find a shirt that I could use in hot, humid, weather, and was hoping that the "V" collar would be more comfortable around my neck. Very comfortable shirt, seems to wick well, and is comfortable to wear in hot weather as it breathes well. Wore it out on runs mid day, and group PT sessions to see what it would feel like when it got wet. Did not stick to me and dried fairly quickly. Washed it and just draped it to see how long it would take to dry. The Patagonia AirFlow shirt by far is the fastest drying shirt but this shirt was completely dry a few hours later, alot faster than the ForeRunner 1/4 Zip , that thing gets wet and stays soggy wet. Wish the Air flow shirt had a "V" collar like this shirt so as it did not hit your throat as it starts to ride down your back. Sleeve length: I have to roll the cuffs back twice in order to fit my arm length. Would appreciate Patagonia offering sleeve lengths within their (S,M.L, XL, etc.) sizes. Sizing (other than sleeves) runs true to fit, I wear a large in most things and this shirt was no exception. Overall Patagonia delivered on this item. I would recommend someone buying it.
Patagonia sunshade shirt
The price kinda scared me, but with the rays from the sun, doing the damage it can do and has done to my skin, it was worth a try. I wore this shirt outside all day in the heat and bareing sun and if there is any breeze, it will go right thru to cool you down.Very light and comfortable to wear. I am ordering 2 more, I like them so well.
Very good shirt for sun protection, fit is bang on. Downside is odor retention, shirt needs to be washed after every use, as opposed to an Island Hopper shirt which you could wear for a few days. Sunshade shirt not recommended for bush whacking missions as you will destroy it. It is best suited for hot days on the drifboat or the flats skiff.
More than just shade
I found my new favorite fitness shirt. I now have four sunshade shirts in four really great colors. These shirts are very breathable, exercise moisture passes through quickly leaving me consistently dry even in mid 80's heat of the Hawiian tropics. They are so soft and comfortable they even work well as a sleep shirt this Fall. Very pleased with this item.
The hot, humid and often still summer days on the flats and in the creeks of NE Florida require apparel that is capable of turning back the rays and keeping me dry and comfortable. The Sunshade Shirt is definitely up to the challenge. It is by far the best fishing shirt that I have ever worn.
Fantastic Sun Shirt
I absolutely love this shirt. It looks and feels great. When it is hot it is a very light weight and it breathes with you. I have other sun shirts but this one is my favorite and I plan on buying more of them.
Great Sunshade Shirt
Shirt keeps me cool on hot days. Launders well and keeps its shape. Stains seem to come out fairly well. As with all of those fibers they catch and pull.
cool / protective
Shirt is ultra light and spf. superb, protecting me from south FL. sun. Fit is a little snug for my stocky frame but a great shirt.
This shirt is warm and cool and is the most comfortable undershirt I own. I hate to throw it in the dirty clothes bin.
Great light weight fishing shirt
Very comfortable fishing shirt. Sun protection and keeps you cool on warm days and warm on cool days
