"Comfortable, sheds sweat, seems durable, and even stylish"
I recently wore this for several days of a backpacking and meditation trip in the Ka'u district, south of Kilauea on the Big Island of Hawai'i. Some of my female companions on the trip were teasing me on the first day about how stylish it looked; I had to tell them I was waiting for my photo shoot for GQ.On the practical side, it was cool and comfortable under a loaded pack, even in bright Hawai'i sun. I got plenty sweaty but both sweat and rain dried out quickly enough and it didn't get too smelly. The zip breast pocket was great for holding either my sunglasses or regular glasses and occasional other odds and ends. The white reflects the sun well, and it held up against scraping on lava rocks. Once it gets caked with dust and grime it no longer looked quite so stylish but it stayed comfortable and that's what I bought it for.
