I had an opportunity to get out in the sun for a long backpack with Outdoor Research’s Echo LS shirt after having seen Hit the Trail with it, his son in law an ultra marathoner recommended it to him. The shirt is ultralight ventilating and drying better than my MH Wicked T or other running shirts but additionally the light color didn’t absorb heat I was surprisingly cool and comfortable all day. Sometimes you stumble on a product that separates from the marketing hype.

I used one (hooded) all last year, including on snow. I’ll probably pick up another this year.

It looks like they stopped making the long sleeve crew neck version.

OR makes good stuff, but I gotta say knit fabric doesn't work for me for backpacking. I prefer a lightweight thin woven shirt which holds the backpack more stable on your hips and the small of your back with less belt tension. Knit introduces a stretchy layer than can promote creeping.

Because of some of the crazy events my son-in-law has completed he has a pro deal with OR. About twice a year they offer a discount code to family members to get 50% off an entire order. So I just bought some short sleeved Echo base layers to put under my slightly thicker base layers. I was wearing them this weekend down at Mt. Hood on some family hikes and they were really toasty. I see no reason to wear a long sleeved inner layer with stuff like that available.

After a full day of activities saturday my son and I were having an hors d oeuvre and a night cap at the bar as it was getting dark when he txt his sister to have them come join us. Turns out they were skinning half way up to the summit of Hood to ski down before dark!

I basically live in OR Echo tees - long and short sleeved. Road running, trail running, backpacking, base layer for splitboarding. If I'm being active, chances are I'm sporting on of those. They weigh next to nothing and I can stuff an extra pretty much anywhere in my pack. They also dry super quick, which is nice when you've been wearing the same shirt for multiple days in the backcountry.

I recently picked up a couple pairs of the Echo briefs and they're wonderful on the netherregions biggrin.gif

Absolutely love my shirts and noticed they are a hard item to come by sold out a lot my wife searched and found two at Campsaver noticeably cooler in the alloy / white and dry very quickly compared to my MH Wicked T, Ultralight Capilene, and even my running shirts.

For the tall crowd

Columbia Men's Tamiami Long Sleeve comes in Talls. Loose Fit, Moisture wicking and sun blocking.

Arms have rollup tabs. Comes in a bunch of colors.  I have an obnoxious  bright orange one I wear hiking during hunting season.

Interesting, thanks for posting that.  I didn't know Columbia had tall sizes.  When you say loose fit, is that throughout the shirt or just around the belly?  In particular, are the sleeves loose enough to actually roll up a long arm to the tabs without being tourniquets?

It pretty generously cut in the arms as well.  No issues rolling up.

I wanted someone with a collar to keep sun off my neck.  I have three of these treated with Permethrin that are my go to hiking wear.
