210lb 6'1 long arms good fit
This UV shirt fits perfectly I'm 210lbs 6'1 and I usually have a problem finding shirts with long enough sleeves. I also like the fact that it is kind of snug around the shoulders and chest but around the stomach and arms it's a little bit loose which is perfect for my build. Wore it to Aquatica and it dried in about 10 minutes as I was walking from ride to ride. After a full day of being in the sun I had absolutely zero burn beneath the shirt. I would definitely recommend

Surprised with the fitment.
I'm satisfied with the two shirts that I bought. I honestly thought that these shirts were gonna be too small and the sleeves too short. I'm 6'6" tall and weigh 365lbs. So most consider me a giant of a human being. My arm length 36-38" If I remember correctly. Even when I extend my arms, the sleeves don't come up too much. Also, I liked that the shirts are long, and that it comes way down past my waist,...which is normally a problem for me. Other than that,...it's very breathable as described. As far as durability,...I can't say yet. I haven't put it through it's paces yet. To have protection when it's sunny and hot, but still feel comfortable,...I think these shirts are the way to go.

Good Shirt But Not For Me
Medication I now take makes my skin extremely sensitive to the sun. And I do mean “extremely” sensitive. I ordered the Vapor Apparel UPF Long sleeve Solar Performance T-Shirt that the site says has an “up to UPF 50+”. I received the shirt, put it and another shirt on and went out to walk my dog. The second shirt I left unbuttoned because it was warm out. Later in the day I noticed my chest was itching – big time. The Vapor T-Shirt did not give me the protection I needed.
I sent Vapor Apparel an e-mail asking what their statement “up to UPF 50+”. This is the response I received from Nick:
“Thank you for your feedback request on the specifics of the SPF rating of the shirts. All of the shirts have a minimum SPF ranking of 35. A couple of the colors rank higher (White for example ranks 58 SPF and Black ranks over 50 spf). Color has an impact on the manner in which the sun interacts with the fabric. I know this is not an exact rating – we are working quickly with the SPF ranking group to get a more universal grade. Most of the colors are scoring in the mid and upper 40’s for SPF. As you can see we are wanting to be as precise as possible with a challenging color issue. We are working to address this issue in other ways as well.
The shirt ranks very well with customers for protection. We have received almost universal positive feedback. If for any reason the shirt does not meet your expectations we can provide you with a full refund. We hope this information is helpful and you enjoy the shirt.
Please let us know if you require additional information.
I’m rating this shirt 5 stars because:
1- Most purchasers give it rave reviews and,
2- The honesty of Nick’s response.
Though I did like the looks, feel and price of the shirt it just isn’t able to give me the UV protection I need.

My dermatologist strongly recommended that I start wearing UPF shirts(lots of skin cancers). I was given a catalog and the prices were sky high and beyond my budget but I came here to AlumiGogo and found this shirt. It fits well, looks good and was more than 1/2 off the catalog merchandise. I will definitely be buying more.

Fits, Looks & Feels Great !!!!
Just ordered 3 more, 1 white & 2 black.
I'll more than likely purchase several more so I have one for every day of week ( min ) of 7, plus a couple more so when I use two in one day.
Working out pretty hard so I don't want to get all the same size in case I trim down and need smaller size...
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THESE SHIRTS.
Durable & Extremely comfortable for regular everyday use and Exceptionally comfortable when cycling or performing any activity where one perspires or sweats alot as they wick wetness away from body and shirt stays dry...
Love these shirts and they fit my body very very good...
Wore it after being washed and hung dry for first time. It has shrunk at all. Did a 33 mile bike ride on a very warm day and felt comfortable the whole time.
No sunburns, not wet, not cold, no additional wet like cotton after it gets wet.
I'm going to get 3 or 4 more...
Wore shirt for the first time and it performed as advertised. Felt great, comfortable and definitely wicks away sweat and keeps one feeling drying and comfortable, plus as advertised, unlike cotton that get's heavier as it gets wet, this shirt is very, very light.
I washed it, but haven't tried it on since, so I don't know if it has shrunk any. I'll update once I've had chance to wear it again.
If it hasn't shrunk, then I'll purchase a minimum of 2 more for a total of 3 and probably even more for every day use / riding...
The shirt really feels comfortable and good against the skin.
I was anxiously and eagerly waiting for this item after reading all the great reviews...
I just received it and put it on.
Feel great, looks great, fits great...
I have long arms and sleeves fit perfect... ( cover wrists and go all the way to base of palms ).
I've been lifting weights and it fits neck, shoulders, chest and arms great...
It's loose fitting but not baggy or tight...
Length is about 10 inches below my waist or even with private parts...
I really love look and feel.
Just hope it's durable after washing and won't shrink as I'll wash in cold water and hang dry...
Hope it'll wick persperation and sweat away and stay dry like it says plus provide UV protection...
If product does at it says I'll buy 3 or 4 more...

Good, worth the price
Very light material, somewhat see-through
I wore it in 105 degree weather yesterday and didn't feel too hot.
Fits a little smaller than advertised. Probably not enough to go a full size up

High Value to Price Ratio
Nice shirt for the sun. Very light material. Perfect for wearing on a hot day and keeping your skin from burning. I will use these for golf and fishing in the midday hot southern sun. The fit is a just slightly smaller than a normal XL so you may want to order one size up. This shirt is a great bargain compared to similar high end sun protection big logo shirts at four times the price. You could pay a whole lot more and get the same or less. Bang for the buck is big if this shirt holds up over time. I am ordering a few more in different colors. The material is comfortable next to the skin so you may find yourself wearing it as a base layer. Seems to wash up nice. I have looked for a good long sleeve sun shirt for a long time and most of them are too heavy or way overpriced with obnoxious corporate logo's making you a human ad billboard. I think you will find this sun shirt to be just the right product for the hot sun. This is my first Vapor product. I have been wearing these long sleeve Vapor shirts on the golf course in the hot summer sun this past week and they keep you cool and comfortable with minimum sweat factor. The fit is great and they seem to give easily with activity. Very impressed with this product - highly recommended!

Vapor Makes A Quality Product!
Vapor Apparel makes a very good performance shirt for men - I needed protection from the sun due to numerous skin cancers over the past few years and my Derm Doctor recommended going with shirts having high UPF protection - although Vapor's price point is half of what a HUK shirt would cost if you're really budget restricted but need the protection you probably should look at Hanes Cool Dri long sleeve shirts which are about half the cost of Vapor's shirts - I purchased both and both work well for their intended purpose! As far as the size I found that I could have used a size Large with either brand but they fit me close (maybe not snug) across the chest so I ordered X-Large which fits up top much better to my taste but you have to put up with a longer length in the shirt - if you tuck it in that issue doesn't come into play but if you leave it out then you may want to stay with a Large.

Good shirt - but pearl gray a little see through when wet
Overall this is an excellent swim shirt. It's looser than most rash guards (which is what I wanted - already have some rash guards) - so it's comfortable to wear around outside the pool area to protect from the sun. Sleeves are a little long, but that's ok, easy to push them up and for those with longer limbs you'll appreciate it.
For SPF protection, these seem to do well. Wore one of these (in blue) on a beach vacation, no problems with sunburn under the shirt. Another thing I like is that the neck opening is not too big (so you don't get too much sun there). It's less coverage than my rash guards, but more than what appears out there in one of the other brands of swim shirt. To me, this is a good balance between comfort/wearability outside a pool area vs. a rash guard. Also, did not get as hot as I would have expected given it was a synthetic long sleeve (I think the looser fit helps vs. a rash guard)
I wore these in water and they were fine - didn't particularly float up as I was worried given the looser fit. Overall, I would recommend this product, a good solid product at a very fair price.
I have this in another color which is great. My only knock on the pearl gray is that when wet it is a little see through. This may or may not bother you given it's a men's swim shirt. I returned mine, no problem and have other colors which are good.

The shirt came in a plastic bag thinner than a cheap sandwich bag that hole in it and the shirt got covered in little black stains. It came with other items that were not damagedThe stitching is awful! Cheaply made and it's a $25 shirt! Rip off! returning !
