Rated 4 out of 5 by from Keeps cool in the heat I purchased two of these shirts to wear when going for walks outside and thought they would come in handy when I go on vacation. I'm heading to Central America and plan to do some hiking and want to wear long sleeves to help keep the sun and bugs off. ??I tried the shirt out this weekend and found that I stayed cool when wearing it in the sun. ??I initially ordered mediums because I tend to fit between small and medium and thought it would be safer to order up. ??I was swimming in them. ??The smalls fit great. ??If you are between sizes, you may want to order down a size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fashion Staple This is a fashion staple; a basic that feels like lightweight supima cotton. It runs large, for example, I ordered both this and the crew neck versison. I had to send the crew neck back bc a little tight around the bust but this one was just fine. Love it! Wish it came in Plus sizes tho as I am borderline and most American women are too. (I am a melanoma pt and have gained wt due to meds etc. Many women have their own issues.) The XXL in this fit fine tho so I encourage you to try it, it will quickly become a staple. Wear alone, as a layer or with a scarf to jazz it up. Perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality and Enduring Fit once you find it. I like these shirts so much I now own two jackets and four long sleeve v-neck shirts. I first ordered the round neck in a large and found it fit considerably tighter than the v neck large, so I exchanged the round neck style for more v necks. There is no shrinkage in hem and sleeve length, and the color holds up just fine through many washings on gentle and occasional dryer spins on gentle. When I just hang them up to dry, they require little to no ironing, depending on how picky I feel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Product for Southern California Sunshine! I bought three of these long sleeve tees because I have sun-damaged skin from too much beach time as a kid. Not only do the tees protect my now delicate skin, but they keep me cool too. Plus, they are flattering. I love them and will probably buy a couple more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this blouse! So light and airy! Great lavender color, great for walking my dog in the heat, it is airy and light. Size large is a little roomy but I like that, I am size 12-14. I just bought another in aqua!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the Color The fabric on this blouse is so soft and doesn't add heat when you are already in the blistering hot sun. I love the color. I bought it in a beautiful shade of pool blue that works well with black, white, other pastels or vivid colors. The back vent helps with air circulation, too. I've washed it by hand and by machine and it stays beautiful both ways. It dries quickly, too. Can be worn tucked in or not.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Silky, comfortable, and cool. I am tall and have appropriately long arms - but this blouse's sleeves are long enough. In a sun shirt, sleeve length to assure coverage is expected and this shirt delivers. Washes up nice, stays smooth and silky. I'd like pockets but this is dressier without.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Top I bought this for traveling to Georgia. Not only did it keep me a bit warm (not a lot) in windy weather. It helped to keep my arms from getting burned.
