Great fit, comfort and sun block.. good value for the price!
on August 25, 2014
Middle-aged dad here who has both gained some baby weight in the last few years and developed a big disdain for skin cancer. Bought this to wear at the beach this summer in the ocean for both protection and cover-up. Those six-pack abs are not what they used to be and I would like to lessen the slather of chemicals that my wife insists on rubbing me down with.
* * THINGS I LIKED * *
(+) Nice fit, somewhat tailored but not tight. I did buy a 4XL when I normally wear a 3XL but that is because I didn't want it to fit like a wet suit top and show off all my beach-curves.
(+) Nice material.. it is definitely synthetic, but after multiple all-day wears and multiple washings, it hasn't snagged or pilled and still looks great.
(+) Good protection from the rays. Wearing it allowed me to reduce the chemical sun-block to just my face, head, neck, arms and legs, and believe it when I say that is a big improvement.
(+) Great value for the price.
* * THINGS THAT COULD BE BETTER * *
(-) Not much, really... maybe better color choices? But all in all, it is a casual-style shirt that would work being worn into a food establishment.. it doesn't SCREAM beach style and could be tucked into dockers or canvas shorts for dinner.
* * PURCHASE RECOMMENDATION * *
Absolutely, buy a few in multiple colors.... you won't regret it and your skin will thank you. Totally worth the money. Was in the sun for hours and had excellent sun protection as well as good wash-ability post ocean. Salt water did nothing to the quality. True to size, great fit and comfortable. Also great at hiding that unsightly baby weight I gained through each of my wife's pregnancies.
