I bought this right before we left for our Outeniqua mission, without a trial run to test it on a day hike. This shirt performed admirably! Hard-wearing, it was tested through some extremely dense foliage on our multi-day trek through forests and under sun, from Goudveld and through the Harkerville coastal section. Dries very quickly and I never once noticed any cool back sweat to make me cringe when I was taking off/ putting on my overnighter pack. The collar allowed me to keep my DSLR around my neck the entire 7 day mission without any chafe or sunburn on my neck. The zip up front pocket was a dependable place to keep my lip balm, and the sleeves sat comfortably and didn't annoy when when rolled up. The only thing I would add is a little micro-fibre patch like on the Nueva for wiping glasses and lenses, but that's just a nice-to-have. Last note, I am 185cm, 80kg and bought the medium (normally wear a large, but the large on the Fastrek ran extra large to me), which is a perfect fit for me, and can definitely be worn outside of hiking in more formal settings. Stoked!
