... in a size medium. The fit seems right (my son usually wears 8/10, closer to an 8 and this 10/12 fits him a tad bit big like I expected). It is very thin (you can see through it when you hold it up) so it should be nice and cool when they are doing activities. The color was as pictured, nice and bright. The only reason that I didn't give it a 5 star rating is the seams. The seams are thick which would seem like it would hold the shirt together better but a lot of brands these days are able to do flatter (while still good quality) seams on athletic wear. If your son isn't going to be doing rigorous activity for too long (which mine isn't), you'll be completely fine. But if you are getting these for a teenager that is starting to do longer runs or longer practices (or if you are a small sized adult ordering for yourself and you do long workouts), the thick seams might chafe you. For most kids though, this shirt is perfect (especially if you are lucky enough to get it at the great clearance price).

We bought several of these shirts in different colors. (This is an amazingly vibrant blue.) Altho they fit a little big at first, we really love them. Excellent quality. They hold up well to washing and drying. We have (hard) well water- and that always takes a toll on our clothes. These look as nice now as they did when we first purchased them, (and he wears them often). It turned out to be a bonus that they fit a little large, since they don't have any wash fade, he has worn them twice as long as other shirts, and they still look great. The long sleeve, lightweight mesh makes these a perfect year around shirt. Easy to wear under a sweatshirt or jacket during the winter and comfortable by itself in the summer. I'd recommend these shirts for your own children or as gifts.
