If there is one area of clothing that has exploded in recent years its the "Wicking" T-shirt. Practically every single company that produces clothing makes their own versions. Since there are so many shirts out there to choose from it can get a bit overwhelming trying to decide which shirt to buy. What makes it worse is that it seems like each company has their own proprietary combination of fabrics so no 2 shirts are exactly the same in regards to fabrics and technical features. I have actually tried a substantial number of these shirts from such companies as Mountain Hardware, Marmot, Patagonia, New Balance, Prada, Nike, etc. I personally found Mountain Hardware to have the best selection but then I came across Ex Officio last year and I really liked the design of the Exo-Dri Tee so I figured I would give it a try. I am glad I did as it has easily become my favorite wicking t-shirt on the market.

First and foremost I love the fabric. I am not a big fan of the wicking shirts that are 100% polyester and unfortunately the vast majority of these kinds of shirts are 100% polyester. This is obviously a personal preference but I find that a combination of cotton and polyester, in a ratio close to 1:4 or 1:5, is the most comfortable and the Exo-Dri T-shirt by Ex Officio is 85% Polyester and 15% cotton. Its by far my favorite shirt yet in this regard. Its super super soft and the 15% cotton doesn't noticeably hinder the shirts wicking properties. Again this is a personal preference and some people do in fact prefer the 100% polyester. I am just not one of them.

As for the rest of this shirts technical details, it has a UPF 20+ sun protection rating, it has a FreshGuard® finish which actively fights against odors, and it has a tagless label at the neck to prevent itching. It also has Ex Offcio's dri-release® system which means it dries extremely fast. Overall it has all of the important characteristics that one looks for in this type of shirt.

Last but not least these shirts look fantastic and they fit really well thanks to a really nice athletic cut. Its not to loose and its not to tight and that is exactly how I prefer my athletic t-Shirts. I have never been one for the skin tight fit that a lot of athletic shirts have these days yet at the same time I dont want something really baggy that is going to get in the way. The combination of the 15%/85% fabric and the quality of the fit easily make this one of the best athletic shirts on the market. Contrast stitching tops off the overall look and they are available in both long sleeve and short sleeve versions. I also have to mention how great the color selection is for this line of shirts. The Dark Charcoal, Deep Lapis, Khaki, Deep Tumeric, and deep jade are all fantastic colors.

The bottom line - Ex Officio's Exo-Dri T-shirts are hands down some of the best "wicking" shirts on the market. Add to that a super clean design and great colors and it quickly becomes about how many to buy, not whether or not you will buy.

Highly recommended!

This was the largest large I had ever purchased.

I ended up exchanging this shirt for a medium. For point of reference I am 5'10" with a 44" chest.

Just returned from an extended trip to China. These shirt saved me from packing a ton of clothing. Washed them out in the evening and they were dry by morning. Great product.

Great shirt, I have several. Just a note that this shirt is a normal cut, not athletic. It fits well for everyone though, wears fantastic, has SPF, and is just an all around great shirt.

I'm 5'8" athletic build, usually size medium is perfect, but I was swimming in this thing. The materials felt great, and I may try a small, but I've found exofficio clothing I buy off amazon (this, a similar shirt, and give n go vneck) the mediums just fit ridiculously - too small in some places, way too big in others. Maybe I just got outdated models, but whatever the case I had to return this shirt.

I have the feeling this shirt will last a long time. This is a very well made, extremely comfortable shirt--keeps you warm and dry.

I bought this shirt after already having the short sleeve option. These are great for kayaking because they dry off quick. They don't stay swamped like cotton tee shirts. I probably will be buying a few more Exofficio products in the future.

Shirt is perfect. It is hard to tell when ordering online how the fit will be. However, knowing the quality of Exofficio and having other close from Exofficio I am perfectly comfortable ordering. Fit as expected. Very happy.

First the bad, then the good: I am 6'1" and ~170lbs so for T-shirts, I'll usually buy a large. Knowing that for a shirt like this, I would want a more form-fitting size, so I opted for a medium - hoping it wouldn't be too small. Well, it turned out that the arms fitted perfectly, but the bottom of the shirt came down well past the ol' crotchal region - a bit surprising for a medium on me. I ended up washing it on a gentle warm cycle and then on tumble dry, and then it fit pretty well.
As far as everything else goes, this shirt rocked big time when it came to cooling me down and keeping dry. I went on an overnight backpacking trip in SE Arizona (on a fairly warm weekend for February) and it kept me dry and cool. I would consider myself a pretty sweaty dude when it comes to physical activity (I'll soak a cotton T-shirt, no problem) so when the beads of sweat came a drippin', all it took was a 5 minute breather, and I could practically watch the shirt dry itself. And it worked fairly well as a light defense against the onslaught of cat claws in the canyon we were hiking in. And, although I should give it more time to judge, the anti-microbial feature worked like a charm. Great buy, worth the $$.
