Best summer shirt ever! (Review by rgold)

I now own two of these. I bought the first for climbing and love it for that, but it has also become my travel shirt of choice. It is light, stretchy, has stood up to abrasion (ok, no off-width in it), hand-washes easily, and looks good enough to wear in the front-country.

There is feature that doesn't work. The snap-up collar is almost impossible to do up even when I'm looking in a mirror---fuhgettaboutit if actually in the field.

My Go-to Shirt (Review by Mitch)

I love this shirt. It's immediately became the go-to, favorite short sleeve shirt in my wardrobe. I love it so much, I ordered all three colors. I have to admit the orange/red one is a bit on the bright side, but who cares when you're totally comfortable and cool (as in temp, not attitude). I wear these shirts on regular lounging days, when hiking, and even for mountain biking. They wick away the seat and dry almost instantaneously. Did I mention I bought it in long-sleeve, too? Yup, it's that great.

I'm ordering all colors (Review by Brad)

I work in South East Asia and still need to look professional. This Shirt nails it. In the insane humidity here the light weight breathable fabric of this shirt couldn't preform any better. I've not taken it out into the jungle yet to get a sense of durability but OR products have never let me down there before. This is a must have for an outdoor professional.

This shirt is incredible (Review by gohoos)

I decided to purchase this shirt after spending a day climbing in Tuolumne and having my skin suffer as a result of the sun exposure. At first I did not think a button down shirt could breathe as well as a baselayer or active shirt, but man was I wrong. This shirt does it all - it breathes, stretches, keeps the sun off your neck, and looks good enough to travel in or wear to the bar. In fact, it's become my go-to travel shirt in addition to my go-to summer climbing shirt. Oh, and the fit is fantastic. I think this shirt will quickly become a flagship OR product. They just need a few more colors!

Great for a massage therapist! (Review by Raymond)

I'm 6'2" 220lbs, the L is litely snug and the XL is just fine. Unfortunately, MEC is out of XL and I can't seem to find a store that holds this item... I hope OR Canada can ship me some in the other colors. Feels like a dream :O)

Love this shirt (Review by jake)

I just received this shirt and I love it. Feels great and is very comfortable. The only thing I would mention is it does run a little small. You might want to try one on before buying or get one size up from your regular size. I am 5/9' 165 and the large is just right.

May be the perfect shirt (Review by AlwaysOutdoors)

I just wore this shirt to spend a day hiking in Arches National Park. The weather was in the mid to high 80's, and I hiked just over 10 miles. I couldnt help but notice how comfortable I was all day. This is now my go to hiking shirt. It fits true to size, I'm 6ft 180 lbs and the large fits me perfect, i do look my shirts to fit on the looser side. I like it so much, I just ordered the long sleeve version!

Oh yeah, love that fabric! (Review by pegoodman)

The Astroman was love at first touch!
It was eyes-burning-with-sweat-hot out the other day cragging and this shirt wicked moisture, stayed dry and didn't stink. At the bistro later that night dinner would've been covered had I charged a quarter to each person who fondled my shirt.
I'm 5' 9", 167 and have a 40" chest - I find the large fits me perfect (airing on the roomy side) for casual wear and rock climbing.
I have had zero issues with durability; no problems with the snaps and the fabric is still like new after many washings and countless hours of wear.

Awesome (Review by Bobbo)

This shirt is amazing! I never feel wet in it and it dries very quickly.
A wash at night hang it up and it's dry in a couple of hours. The fit is right on and it moves with you whether climbing an off width or hiking to the climb. It's like wearing nothing at all.

Best shirt I own (Review by Mr)

this shirt is so comfortable I sometimes forget I have it on. It really holds its own in the heat, and feels amazing against your skin. Gonna have to buy 2 maybe 3 more of these shirts.

highly recomend (Review by skiven)

I only wish i got to hit the skin track with this on my back. What a great shirt it would be for the spring ski season, quick drying, not binding, and great breathability. I have used it mainly as an everyday shirt, and have been happy with its performance in my active daily life in the hot and muggy southeast. I have not spent a whole day climbing, but have dabbled enough to know that the stretch is a beautiful creation. I tend to use my chest pockets often and having the snap and cover has proven beneficial as I now do not grab at my chest while bending over to inspect something in this shirt my other quick dry nice looking button down shirts have me droping things out of the chest pocket while bending over.

Simply a Great Shirt (Review by geowayne)

Simply just a great shirt. It is a great summer weight shirt with a little stretch so it moves with you and does not bind. I work for a land managing federal agency and often spend long hot days in the mountains with a day pack strapped to my back. I would say this is the most comfy shirt I own.
