Patagonia Short Sleeve Nine Trails Shirt Review

First impressions always begin with feeling the fabric.  This Nine Trails shirt passed.  The fabric is super soft and has a brushed feeling.  It is 100% polyester, but has the feeling of a cotton T.  I would personally choose a tank on the hot, sunny, summer days, but...
