Great field shirt
I use this shirt during field work in wetlands (and will do so on hikes this coming Summer). Good coverage and great feel - not like many other plastic feeling shirts. I can't stand wearing coolmax and the like because it feels clammy against the skin, but this shirt feels more like a natural fiber. I think Patagonia's quality has gone down since they moved their manufacturing overseas, but this shirt seems very well made so far. This shirt is definitely a go-to for exposed hiking in hot weather. The weave is thin enough to breath really well, so I don't expect it to stop mosquitoes. Pumice color is perfect for long trips / thru-hikes where sun protection is desired but the shirt cannot be washed as often as you want. There are no vents on the shirt, but they are worthless anyways if they're under a pack. Durability got 4 stars, only because polyester is not as strong as nylon oz for oz. But Nylon would not feel half as good as shirt against the skin, so what can you do.

really nice shirt
This is a really nice shirt. The fabric makes it a kind of dressy and practical at the same time. the fit is great. it is fitted but not too fitted. Kind of a roomy fitted shirt. I bought the earthenware color which is a good color to mix with blue or black or just about any other color.
