I LOVE this shirt. I bought it for a fishing/trekking trip in Belize and I wore it almost daily. It was great to use in lieu of sunscreen--on the boat or just walking around in the midday sun--since it is made out a GREAT material that is much cooler and "breezier" than other UPF shirts I have tried. When it's 80 degrees and humid, the thought of putting on anything thicker than this shirt was a nightmare, and it was great to have something to protect my skin while staying cool (and looking good!). It was great for travel because the material was good for balling it up in a backpack and still not having it look very wrinkly when you wanted to wear it.
The fit is great--not as boxy as some of the other types of UPF shirts I have tried. I don't think the picture does it justice for how good it looks on (I thinkg the Amazon picture makes it look kind of boring).
I can't recommend this shirt highly enough. I have the white and it did get pretty dirty after weeks of backpacking, so I think I'll try a few other colors.
