Most versatile shirt I own
Finally getting around to writing a long overdue review. This is an amazing shirt. I have used it for fishing, backpacking, mountain biking, climbing, and more. Despite me putting it through the ringer for over 5 years, it is still holding up great. It is far more breathable and dries much quicker than other athletic shirts - which is very important for me during outdoor activities. I highly recommend.

Terrible Color Selection
I have used this shirt for years as a cover up over t-shirts or tank tops. I am a petite woman and prefer this shirt because it is boxy and not fitted. However the color selection is awful. I am not spending this much money to get a color I hate. So I guess I will continue to use my old shirts or buy from another company.

a bit of refinement suggested
This is the only long-sleeved outdoor shirt I own, that needs to be unbuttoned at the wrists to put on or take off. This makes it sort of annoying for daily use. Else the shirt is just fine. I echo others' comments that more tall-size colors would be most welcome.

Great shirt but tall guys like colors too
This is a great shirt, but I wish you had more color choices in my size (tall/medium). It would be even better if you carried tall sizes in your other shirts.

NICE SHIRT
This shirt is casual but nice enough to wear out to a restaurant or a day out on the town. I chose Solumbra/Sun Precautions over another major company as Solumbra has been tested after 500 laundering cycles and the other only 40 laundering cycles. I wanted the shirt to provide protection and last more than 40 washes, so I chose Solumbra. I have 5 shirts and 2 hats and I am satisfied with all. You will see I left a similar review under the other products I bought.

Lovely shirt - bring back the rose color, please
This is a lovely shirt - expensive, but lovely. I use this shirt as a topper over T-shirts, etc. I typically wear size 12 and SM in this shirt fits fine, with plenty of room for freedom of movement. The fabric is soft, almost elegant and feels nice against the skin. The fabric washes well and if taken out of the dryer promptly the shirts are mostly winkle free. The under arm and back vents help with comfort on really hot days. The summer blue and summer sage colors are lovely soft tones. But I'm very disappointed to learn that the rose color is being discontinued as it is a beautiful soft pink color. Please bring back the rose color for us ladies who prefer soft pink over bolder shades of pinks.

A good "safe" shirt
I have PMLE, and will have allergic symptoms from UVA/UVB levels greater than zero. I have owned several of these shirts over the years and they have never failed to provide the protection I need when I am outside or traveling. I feel very safe from UV reactions while wearing it. I pair it with a wide brim hat to provide extra protection to the "V" in the neck area. I especially like to order a large size to provide me the ability to pull my hands up into the sleeves when needed, and I can layer it over another shirt when I want to..it's light enough and provides enough ventilation to allow for layers. I only wish that the largest sizes would come in more color varieties.

Sun protection
This shirt allows me to be outside in comfort and allows me to do my chores. I never thought I would be cleaning horse pens and mowing lawn in an eighty dollar shirt. But that seams to be what it takes to get the job done.
