The combination of insect and sun protection, plus cool wicking capabilities proved highly beneficial on a recent camping trip to the Utah desert. The 1/2 zip provided great ventilation and wicking under the high altitude Utah desert sun and keep the desert sand flies and occasional mosquito off my back. My husband especially liked the white color under the sun. I preferred my favorite blue color. Insect Blocker capability seemed to work great for a wide range of bugs, but would like to test under various wetter conditions in the Colorado high country. Athletic fit was perfect, and smart styling that kept me protected from the sun as well. Worked well hiking, mountain biking, or relaxing around camp with the bugs. My new go-to top for the summer!
I would recommend this product.

I wore this shirt every day on a 6-day hike through a mosquito and fly-infested area with pretty good success. The flies didn't bite through the thickness of the shirt, and I only had 2-3 mosquito bites on my upper body, compared with 10-20 on my legs, which were exposed.
Even though the material feels pretty thick, it breathes and felt comfortable even on 80+ degree sunny days. I like that the zip comes down so far.
My only con would be that it picked up stains rather easily, but I'm only wearing it hiking, so there's nobody to impress out in the wilderness.
I'm usually a 2-4, S in regular clothes--I find that in hiking clothes, I'm an XS, but that could be because I like stuff to fit snug.
I would recommend this product.

Bought this product for its sun blocking material, when walking on hot summer days the product does a good job of keeping you cool and protected from the sun.
I would recommend this product.
