Great Outdoors Shirt
I bought this for my husband and he loves it. He is 5'9", 200 lbs and a large fits him perfectly. It's not too tight (like some other performance shirts) but it's not too loose either. It's a comfortable t-shirt for hiking, backpacking, fishing, running, or just wearing around town on hot days. The material is soft and wicks well. He seems really pleased with this shirt! The blue color looks really sharp, too.

A nice technical T for hiking, jogging and MTB
I have a number of prior years' Patagonia technical Ts, and the Runshade maintains the Patagonia quality benchmark. I have used this shirt for both cardio workouts in the gym and for mountain biking. Comfort, breathability and wicking are all excellent. I wear a medium in most casual shirts, but I bought a large in this shirt for the added room (and I don't like clingy fabrics when I'm working out). I might try a medium next go-around, but the large fit pretty well (40" chest; 33-34" waist). I purchased the blue shirt with black trim under the arms, and it's a nice combination. Another quality Patagonia product that I can recommend without hesitation.

Patagonia Runshade T-Shirt
I ordered this short for running. Upon receiving this shirt it looked even better then the picture!! Loved the color combination - I could have even worn it out in town! Unfortunately, the shirt was too small. I'm 6'0, 228 and it was too snug. I ordered an XL, as I'm an XL in other shirts, but this Patagonia runs small. I called Altrec and as expected, XL is the largest size available. Item was returned without question. Too bad - I really liked the look of the shirt!!! Too bad Patagonia doesn't make it in a XXL!! The Form & Function of the shirt was exceptional, too bad the Fit wasn't!

Good running top
Patagonia consistently produces quality products and this Runshade top is no exception. The first thing I noticed about this shirt is how substantial the material is. It's not thin or flimsy like many of the silkweight running tops out there. Also, the quality of the seam construction is top-notch. In the short time I have owned this top I can tell it is well made and it is going to last. Now for the performance... This shirt does a great job of wicking moisture and keeping you dry and cool on a run. The only drawback of this shirt is the location of the seams. For a slim fit top the seams could have been more thought out. The seams are not body mapped and if you are going on a long run or ride the seams will likely cause irritation.

Slim fit for running, no thanks.
Loved the look, snagged up a size from my Patagonia t-shirts. The material tends to feel a bit scratchy, but much larger issue is that it just hangs horribly on me. Looks like i'm wearing someone else's clothes that i stole. Hope they fix the cut/shape/fit with the next incarnation.
