The Pros: The material is quite decent. It's just thick enough that it's not see through, so I can wear it without anything beneath without feeling exposed, even when moist (though becomes just slightly transparent when soaking wet). It feels fairly breathable, and it sufficiently water/sweat wicking.
The Cons: The stitching looks somewhat questionable. Numerous loose thread ends at the beginnings/ends of stitch lines. Perhaps just a cosmetic issue, but a detail that raises concern. I can't exactly put my finger on why, but the stitch lines themselves are giving me a little doubt on the long term durability. I'm not an expert on stitch-work, so the best I can do is update this review if my hunch is right or wrong after a decent amount of wearing and wash cycles.
The Fit: I purchased an XL. I am 6'2'', 210lbs, average build. Generally XL fits me OK, and may give a bit of extra room in some areas depending on style. The sleeves are a touch shorter and narrower than I would expect from XL. For reference, in dress shirts I wear sleeve size 36-37. With arms extended, the sleeves of this product ride up a couple inches. While the chest/shoulder size is fairly spot on, the sleeves catch around the forearm/elbow when extending my arms, and pull on the fabric through the shoulders, which makes it feel like it starts to constrict a bit. Though the stretchiness of the fabric makes this only a minor annoyance. I think buying another size up may resolve this.
Overall impression: A decent buy for the price, but with some minor drawbacks. If it holds up well after more rigorous testing, I may buy another (and increase my review rating accordingly), but right now I think I may continue considering other options due to concerns about construction quality.
I do wish that it had a pocket or two, at least a patch pocket for sunglasses and a pen.
Also more color choices would be appreciated.
The hood is of limited effectiveness. Because of the light material, any breeze from the front blows it right off your head unless you use a hat to hold it in place.
