Just returned from 2 weeks in the Galapagos. Wore this t shirt every day...and yes, it lives up to the hype! No smell. And in being on the equator, with the average temp of mid 80's, I was very comfortable. I can't say enough good things about this t shirt. As soon as I got home I was tickled to see some new colors, and promptly bought another one. My friend, who went on the trip, also just ordered one too.
