Rated 2 out of 5 by OutdoorKat Too small in back, too big in front
Great fabric, it would be perfect for travel that involves outdoor stuff. I think it would wash well in a sink and hang dry for those that don't have easy access to laundry while on the road. The color is nice too.
Unfortunately the the cut of this shirt needs help. I am on the small end of an average size woman (5'3, 130) with a decent bust (36D). I ordered a medium because I usually need the room across the bust. It's really big in the midsection of the shirt (around the waist) and way too small across the back. When I try to put my arms out straight in front of me I cannot do it as the fabric is so tight across the back there is just no room to move my arms.
The funny thing is there is plenty of room in the front along the bust, and no peek-a-boo that I often experience with button down shirts. When I looked at the shirt hanging on my body it looked like it was way too big and that I need a small. But try to move my arms and it's game over. Too bad because I think that overall it's a really nice shirt. I cannot recommend it though due to the issue with the odd fit. It's being returned.

Rated 2 out of 5 by thousandislander Plus size please
This shirt was perfect for my Australia trip but alas the XL size was too tight on me. Please consider making it in either a relaxed fit or in plus sizing. Larger ladies like to be cool and look great also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Antsy Much improved, but ordered a size up
Several years ago I bought - and returned- this shirt twice. The Medium, my usual size, was uncomfortably tight in the shoulders. The Large was big, boxy and looked like a man's shirt. I wore it two times, because I liked how easily the fabric washed, dried and packed, but just was unhappy with the look. Recently, seeing that the shirt had been redesigned, I decided to try the Large again. Third time's the charm! The "remodeled" shirt fits well - still loose enough for comfort in hot, humid weather, but more fitted, feminine and flattering. I'm so glad I tried this shirt again, and look forward to wearing it in Mexico this winter.

Keeps you cool, lightweight, wrinkle free, good for trips to Asia or even hiking in the USA.

Excellent fit. As a hiker the sun block feature is important to me..

Rated 5 out of 5 by jeejjjcccc Great comfy sun shirt
This shirty is excellent. I have 2 of them and wear not just for sun. The construction is very comfortable. Fabric protects but is not hot.

This is a great active wear shirt. Nice cool turquoise color. Fits well, not tight but shapely. I would definitely recommend this shirt for hiking, biking or just outdoors in warm weather.

Rated 4 out of 5 by beanconvert great travel shirt
I got the pink shirt in long sleeves and liked it so much that I wanted the short sleeved version. It is very comfortable and not hot like some of the other travel shirts I have, even though they claim to keep you cool with the vents. The only issue I have with this is the sleeves/shoulders area. It feels like the sleeves pull across the shoulders sometimes. I am not sure if the sleeves are tight on my arms or in the shoulders. Other than that I would rate it a 5 star purchase. The fabric is nice and soft and feels like it would keep you cool.

Rated 4 out of 5 by GerrieBlue Great shirt, but not for me.
I returned this shirt with regret, as it was too tight around the hems of the sleeves, with no way to adjust it. It was very lightweight and otherwise extremely comfortable and attractive. Also had extra "patch lining" in the front to prevent see-thru, especially nice in case of dampness.

Rated 4 out of 5 by plankton good shirt
The shirt fits well and does not feel clammy in hot humid weather. I like the fabric and design. When washed, the seams contracted and wrinkled. Otherwise I would have given the shirt five stars. Color online (my shirt is flint blue) appears more vivid than the actual shirt.
