I traveled throughout France and this shirt was perfect. The lightweight fabric with a touch of stretch was super breathable and very comfortable even when wearing a backpack in the muggy Parisian summer. Bonus -- even though it is a performance shirt, it didn't look like I was out for a run, which I guess is something to think about in Paris. Went on a hike and it performed great under exertion as well. Washed it a couple times on the trip and it was amazing how quickly it dried. A++ shirt for sure.
