Despite not hearing any praises or complaints on durability, I picked one of these up to try out this weekend. The material is the same grid pattern stuff that Patagonia uses on some of their capilene. IE, the borders of the grids are basically already holes. Sure enough the shirt had a bunch of holes after two days of carrying a pack. Might be good for running or boating but a waste of money for carrying a pack.

Interesting, as I have been wearing these for going on 3 years (with packs) and have no wear issues.

How quickly do the Echo shirts develop permastink?   Especially sayvas compared to the tech tees I bought last fall at CostCo for 1/3 the price of the Echo.

I have a several generations back version of this shirt

I have found it great for many activities where sun exposure is a factor.  The underarm fabric is a very fine mesh and vents very well.  The fabric on the arms and front is substantial enough to fend off flys, mosquitos and light brush.  It launders well and still smells good enough to wear in town.
