Rated 2 out of 5 by tennislvr from UPF Shirt I purchased a couple of these shirts about 4 or more years ago. I'm still using them and love them for wearing during tennis in S. CÁ. The newer version is a heavier fabric, runs bigger and most importantly is way too dark for the hot weather. Also the color is more of a deep purple. I liked the color but not for the hot sunny days where I live. I would normally exchange it for a smaller size but the very dark color is a deal breaker. The older shirts I bought were a size medium and fit great. I weight 133 and am 5'7" tall with a small bustline. The medium in the newer version just kind of hangs on me. not very flattering at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mainexpat from A Bit Pricey But Worth It This shirt is marketed as a sun blocker, but I could wear it anywhere. The overall quality is excellent, particularly the fabric which feels wonderfully cool against my skin and, despite being 100% synthetic, is not at all clammy in warm weather. The nautical striped versions are right on trend, and the neckline is just what I was looking for, not the currently fashionable boat or ballet necks which can create bra strap issues. I haven't washed it yet, but it looks like it will hang dry quickly, so that not being able to throw it in the dryer won't be a problem. All in all, appears to be worth the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by webster1943 from Best shirt ever! Versatile- sun & wind protection. I purchased the shirt for sun protection for my Florida vacation. The color , fit, and usefulness was great. Not only was I protected from the sun while at the pool or walking down the beach, it was a good wind barrier too.. The shirt is really comfortable. I never got hot while wearing it.. I washed the shirt in cool water and hung to dry , it is looking just like new., This was the best purchase I made for my vacation, in fact, of the three new things I bought, the only one I wore. This was a great buy and great value. I will wear it many more times this summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WisconsinBadgerGirl from Cobalt floral pattern is pretty! Nice swim shirt! I ordered an X-Large swim shirt as I saw that it was 22% spandex. I figured the shirt would fit tighter. Normally, I would order a Large but I don't want anything too tight so I went with the X-Large. The shirt arrived and I LOVE the cobalt floral pattern, but it is too big for me. I am disappointed because the size Large shirts are sold out online!! I would advise to not size up when ordering. Order your usual size. The shirt seems wonderful -- wish I could keep it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tallcanadianfan from Fabulous sun protection- very good quality I think a dermatologist would rave about this shirt. It covers your arms, it is cool and attractive. Its looser than a rash guard style shirt which I really like. The air can move more when you wear it. I have worn it a the beach after swimming and I have also taken it to soccer tournaments for all day sun exposure - I will buy another one for next season.

Rated 3 out of 5 by lucero from I like it, but... it clearly says to hand wash. However, I did not see that, but I would rather wear this shirt and hand wash instead of lathering sun tan lotion on. I wish I could just throw it in the washing machine, but again, I am willing to take this extra step for sun protection. I purchased a medium and that is the size I wear - fits well...nice color (blue)...protects from the sun.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Lefts from Runs large... This shirt runs large - I should have bought a size smaller. If that had been the only problem I probably would have bought the smaller size, but there was puckering where the neck band was attached which I didn't like. It is also much heavier material than my other sun protection shirts - undoubtedly fine for Maine but not so great for hot Texas summers!

Rated 3 out of 5 by MoMyers from Like the shirt, but color varies I bought this sun shirt to go with the swim skirt listed as the same color (cobalt). I wanted a shirt I could wear in the water to protect my very pale skin. I was disappointed to see that the color of the shirt did not match the color of the skirt, but I decided to keep both since I liked the fit and fabric. Next time I will order contrasting colors or patterns.
