This fabric is very thin, I'd almost call it "wispy." But it's opaque, and definitely provides adequate sun protection. Wearing it for a couple days at a music festival after I had recently burned my arms moderately, I experienced no additional damage and was comfortable.
I'm 5'10" with broad shoulders and slender arms. It's just a little loose for me - which I think is perfect. The sleeve length was adequate to cover me including the backs of my hands, but I found I would have liked another inch to be completely covered.
I like this product better than some of the other sun protective shirts because it doesn't look like a "performance" or "technical" garment. I feel like I can wear it into establishments and not stick out like a wanna-be runner / racer type. It's just a casual style long sleeve shirt.
I wasn't really happy with the way this shirt handles sweat. It stayed soaked on me for quite a long time into the evening after wearing it all day. I blame the 15% cotton and high humidity for that. But I'll probably stick with the 100% polyester garments for this use in the future.
