I bought this for my two week trip to Hawaii and got back late last night. It was the perfect item to purchase, I wore it every day! On the beach it kept me protected from the sun, reducing the amount of time I spent putting on sun block, but was not hot at all. Then I could wear it into town after changing and it looked elegant. Only downside was that the cuffs started to unravel, but it did see a lot of activity, including my husband deciding to wear it kayaking! Great material, great fit, really easy to wash and dry, dries quickly when wet. It seemed like a lot of money to spend but it was so so worth it!
I also bought the pool hat -- excellent -- and the pareo cover up, also perfect, and the swim skirt, which is the only item I didn't end up wearing.
