Thank you for your feedback.
give comfort that it helps fit the down side of the sun, great to wear yard work, hiking in Moab, or the neighborhood.
I'm about 5'9", 175# and this fits just right.
I'm 5'8" and 150 with an athletic build and this shirt fits perfect.

Product Description

Are you looking for performance apparel that is the perfect beach shirt? That fishing shirt, sun block shirt, swimming shirt, UPF shirt or SPF shirt that will deliver superior sun (uv) protection, performance and moisture wicking? Then look no further, we have the ultimate performance shirt. Our Solar Performance UPF long sleeve t-shirt is the perfect addition to any active outdoor lifestyle. It offers superior sun protection, with up to UPF 50+ solar (uv) protection built directly into the fibers of the fabric. This U/V protection is permanent, and will never wash out through the life of the shirt. The 4.1-ounce, 100% microfiber fabric is both breathable and lightweight. The fabric is further enhanced from an innovative mechanical stretch, which decreases dry time and feels light on the body. The Vapor Solar Performance is ideal for hot summer days when protection from the sun is needed most or as a base layer for cold days. The Solar Performance UPF t-shirt is built with our PURE-tech moisture-wicking system permanently infused in the fibers of the fabric. Because of this technology, our Solar Performance shirts dry far faster than standard cotton garments. Our UPF shirts also include M-Shield (Anti-microbial technology) which keeps our fabrics fresh (odor free), attractive and ready for more. M-Shield technology is Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certified and BlueSign System approved for sustainability.

    Size: LargeColor: Columbia Blue Verified Purchase
    Living in WA and visiting Hawaii for two weeks, I knew my skin wasn't ready for my planned outdoor water centric activities of fly fishing, snorkeling or kayaking...not wanting to break the bank, I bought both this and another suitable color for those activities. Using them both got me thru two weeks with no sunburn, and most of all, with total enjoyment outdoors as a result. I wore each while outside, they performed perfectly, took being wet with no added weight like cotton does, dried quickly, didn't pill and fit my aging, overweight body comfortably. Being an athletic but aging 5-9 180 makes a large my typical size choice and this one fit like I wanted. Not tight thru the armpits, not a " kids to the knees" fit, with loose folds bothering my every move, I would reccomend highly this shirt for the same purposes as for what I bought it for, a simple outdoors shirt to block the sun and used while in the water...dj

    This is my third Vapor Apparel shirt. The first two were the Altered Latitudes versions with designs on them, and were very light weight shirts perfect for hot weather. This is supposedly the exact same shirt but without a design, but the fabric is quite a bit thicker than the first two, and will obviously not be as cool in hot weather. All the shirts were described as 4.1 oz. microfiber, so I am puzzled as to the difference.

    Since I posted this review I received an email from Vapor Apparel stating that the shirt should indeed have been exactly the same as the AL shirts I had ordered, and offering to send a replacement. I had not contacted them with my concern - They monitor the Amazon reviews. Considering this amazing customer service, you absolutely can't go wrong with these shirts.

    My dermatologist strongly recommended that I start wearing UPF shirts(lots of skin cancers). I was given a catalog and the prices were sky high and beyond my budget but I came here to Amazon and found this shirt. It fits well, looks good and was more than 1/2 off the catalog merchandise. I will definitely be buying more.

    I bought this for sun protection when I'm on the water fishing. It does everything it says it does, it breathes well, wicks moisture (sweat) off your body and protects my pale a$$ from getting fried to a crisp while under the mid day sun. The only complaint I have is that its like an odor absorber/multiplier. I mean when you come in off the water after a day of fishing this thing REEKS. You smell like the wind, sweat, fish and whatever else you were around the rest of the day times 10. Look, Im not a stinky guy, as in I don't have stink ass feet or get rancid B/O like some guys, in fact, as far as stinky dudes go, I'm pretty odorless. I have shoes that are years old and the insides smell almost new. Anyway, my point is that these shirts are like odor sponges. God forbid you're actually one of those naturally musky prison types that reeks like onions if you forget the deodorant in the morning. DO NOT FORGET THE DEODORANT cause this thing will smell like a corpse if you do.

    Very light material, somewhat see-through
    I wore it in 105 degree weather yesterday and didn't feel too hot.

    Fits a little smaller than advertised. Probably not enough to go a full size up

    Size: X-LargeColor: Arctic Blue Verified Purchase
    I think the size is what I expected a tiny bit large for me but easierr to get on and on after swimming. Since I wear it over my bathing suit a trick the water instructor gave me was to remove it while still under water and it's much easier to take off in that manner. Just a helpful trick if you have been swimming with it. I am 5ft.8in. and the sleeves a tad long but they push up easily and seem to stay. This also gives me the option of pulling it down over my hands for little more protection on my hands. In deep water exercise your hands are often out of the water or very close to the surface. After a few months of the class about 3 times a week even my legs and feet have gotten a tan. It has been suggested I still use sun screen even with the shirt that is also made to protect.

    This is a very nice shirt. It has that predictable ultra-synthetic feel with a smooth almost slippery quality to it but it seems really breathable and cool and "hangs" very nicely for an excellent fit. It is rated as SPF 50 in the Amazon though I didn't find anything on or with the shirt stating that so I will downgrade my rating if i find it to lack sun protection (I am highly sun-sensitive so this is a big deal) though the infinitely tight weave gives the impression of good protection. All this at a very good price and made in USA.

    I bought this shirt so I could wear it under my fly fishing shirt. I needed the UV protection because I was out on the water for hours.
    The shirt works great for UV protection.
