REI Sierra Long-Sleeve Shirt
Generic Name: Button-Front Long-Sleeve Shirt
Manufacturer: REI Model: Sierra Model Years: 2005
Weight: minimal Cost: $50US

Objectives: I was looking for a nice light shirt to paddle with in hot weather. I scoured the clothing racks at MEC and VPO without success. I wanted a light shirt, that would dry fast, that would protect me against the sun and that had side vents that I could open if the weather would get very hot. I am surprised how few manufacturers make shirts with side vents!! Mountain Hardwear makes such a shirt, but at $90CAN before taxes (at Eco) it's a bit spendy.

While at REI looking for last-minute gear I spotted this shirt, and decided to give it a try.

It exceeded my expectations.
