Fantastic shirt that exceeds expectations One of the cheaper technical t-shirts in the Mountain Hardwear lineup, but performs exceptionally well. Used it recently while climbing and it kept me dry while pulling moisture away. When I took off pack, shirt was soaked in the backside as expected, however, it dried in about 3 to 4 minutes. Unbelievable! You will love this shirt. July 6, 2014
Ultralight Comfort This shirt is lighter, cooler, quicker at drying and more comfortable than similar shirts from other brands. I use this shirt for hiking/backpacking and trail running. I only wish this shirt came in desert tan, so I could wear one everyday in uniform. July 2, 2014
Best Shirt Ever! Best piece of clothing I own. It is a base layer for cold weather, perfect shirt for hot weather running, and perfect under dress cloths when you need to stay cool and dry! It is my go to shirt, I can't seem to have too many. April 25, 2014
Best training shirt I've ever owned This is the first time I have actually taken a moment to give back and write a review, but being that I initially bought this shirt based on the reviews I feel obligated. I originally bought 2 and just recently ordered another 3. I put the first two through multiple workouts a day as well as multi-day missions on an overseas deployment- they still seem like new. I am very picky about gear, and am thrilled that I have finally found the only shirt I need for training or for a climbing/operating/skiing base layer. There is not a better shirt out there for this purpose. Do yourself a favor, order at least 2 or 3 to start, and you'll soon be back for more. I am 5'11 196 lbs and a Large fits great. April 19, 2014
Best t-shirt ever I wear this shirt while working in Central and South America as well as state side. My work days are typically 12 hours long and I wear one of these shirts daily. I've purchased 7 of them now. For a year, I only had one since they stopped making the navy blue one, but the zinc is close enough for my needs. I wish it was a true navy blue though. That one shirt that I started out with is still in great shape after tons of abuse. The quality and functionality is unmatched. Thanks for a great product! February 24, 2014
Wicked Lite T-Shirt Rocks! This shirt is one of my favorites for warm (hot) weather activities. I'm a tenth-of-an-ounce counter and my size large shirt comes in at an impressive 4.50 oz (dang, that shirt is wicked light!). It really does wick moisture and it really doesn't stink. My former favorite poly t-shirt was Mountain Hardwear's Passage Tech t-shirt (sadly, that excellent shirt is no longer made). November 9, 2013
Like its not there It seemed almost sheer when I first saw it and so lightweight I was skeptical. Worked out (crossfit) in it today and did yard work in the rain. It breathed extremely well and dried out very quickly. I'm interested to see how durable it will be. Fit is great although the sleeves could be a touch longer. But overall very pleased so far. If it proves durable I'll probably buy more. Thanks. September 17, 2013
Who knew?! The best piece of gear is one that does its job so that you don't even notice it's there. This shirt is super light, wicking, and cut with the perfect fit so that it never impedes or pulls up out of your harness while climbing. It keeps you cool and drier than wearing NO shirt, and even looks good doing it. I had never considered a shirt as a technical piece of gear, but this shirt has changed my mind about how I get dressed before a full day of climbing. August 15, 2013
Versatile! I love it! Perfect for running and biking. August 7, 2013
Super Lightweight & Functional !! I bought three of these several weeks ago because of the extreme humidity we have in our part of the Midwest. I teach rock climbing in an outdoor environment, and needed something lightweight, functional and quick drying...these were just the right selection! Absorbent, quick drying and so lightweight and comfortable. I highly recommend the Wicked LIte T's for anyone who sweats like I do and needs something cool. July 18, 2013
Wicked is wicked This is the perfect running shirt. Fit is great and it weighs next to nothing. Liked the first one so much that I bought two more. July 12, 2013
Nice and light My husband loves this shirt. It's the lightest and most breathable shirt he has ever exercised in. June 27, 2013
washing Instructions missing - Can't read instructions Do you supply magnifying glasses with your products? The attached tags cannot be read. Has your CEO tried to read them? Do you wash in cold water? Do you put them in a dryer or hang them up to dry? Come on guys. Get with it. June 20, 2013
Lightweight Running Shirt This is a great, lightweight running shirt. I'm 6'0'' 185 lbs and the Medium fit well; not too loose, not too tight. May 29, 2013
Decent top Comfortable fabric, some small pulls in the fabric after washing, but nothing major. May 21, 2013
Awesome Shirt This shirt is great very light and wicking is excellent. Working as a Guide at Vertically Inclined we use and love this product. We plan on buying more for all our guides to wear. We recommend this product to all our clients. April 29, 2013
Fantastic Workout Top This shirt is very lightweight and breathes very well. The colors are great and vibrant. Would definitely recommend to others. March 22, 2013
Amazing shirts!!! Awesome fit too I just ordered 2 more of these! I'm 5'7" 165 and the Medium are just right large fits good too just a little long for my taste. I love the long sleeve version as well. I wear these everywhere especially kayaking and backpacking. The uv protection is perfect and I never overheat. I wear these alone or as an under layer with my MH micro chill zip! Perfect combo!!! Thanks for another great product!! March 21, 2013
Great shirt. Would highly recommend this shirt for pretty much anything in mild and warm weather. It's very lightweight for wicking and has a normal athletic fit - not a fitted/slim profile. March 18, 2013
Material and Fit are great. The only thing missing is a little bit of stretch. The shirt breathes well, great fit, good color. Just taking it on and off is a little tough as it doesn't stretch much. March 8, 2013
lightweight Best lightweight T I've found for warm weather. October 4, 2012
Great Shirt Great shirt as a base layer. I wear the shirt daily under a uniform and it remains dry and comfortable. September 16, 2012
Just bought my second I will continue to purchase this shirt until I have about two of every color. Ideal choice for a t-shirt. I have never worn anything that felt as good, and kept me as cool. August 24, 2012
Great Shirt These are my favorite shirts. I own them in almost every color offered. I wear them for everything. They are so light if feels like you aren't wearing a shirt. August 20, 2012
Great Shirt I love this shirt! Great product! August 7, 2012
Fine Product First thought that comes to mind is Comfy. I already know it's going to last, this style of fabric will last for years. This is the coolest fabric I've found yet, I mean not warm. Low static build up. The color selection is rocking, I love the green for the MH Hubbard Wham. Bottom line, I find this my favorite all time base layer. It's a first for me to buy multiple shirts and colors of the same make. August 6, 2012
Shirt does not have tailored fit as it should Most moisture wicking t-shirts have more of a V-shape tailored fit. This shirt does not and therefore fits more like a normal cotton undershirt and is not very practical. I ordered a medium and normally wear a medium. This shirt fit like a large/X-large in the mid section and slightly larger than a medium in the shoulder area. 5'9", 180, athletic build Do not recommend due to poor fit. Material seems fine. July 12, 2012
Lightest Shirt Ever Made These shirts feel lighter than air. You don't even notice you are wearing it. It dries very quickly if it gets wet. I have 3 now. They need to make more colors! July 2, 2012
Great Shirt, durable and lightweight I wear these wicked light shirts for both outdoors and at the gym. They are very light and comfortable and MH quality. They fit a little snug so I usually wear a medium and go with a large for the loose and longer fit. I wore long sleeve in 90 deg temp and never was hot. They provide good protection from the sun and if you rinse them in a stream on a hike they'll cool you off and dry in no time. Definitely another MH quality product. July 1, 2012
Wicked Lite Tee These shirts are anything you could ask for, from a wicking tee. It is extremely light weight and lets the venting process occurr evenly throughout the shirt. I bought a large and it fit me perfectly. At six feet tall, weighing 205 the length hits at the middle of the zipper area of my pants and the upper torso area was snug, but nowhere close to tight. I use these mainly for working out in and so far they've been awesome. A little strectch for when you swell up and plenty of venting to cool you down! May 28, 2012
great tee great tee and a good fit. comfy and light, pick one up May 18, 2012
Almost perfect Got a couple of these two years ago, and they're my favorite shirts. Light and fit right and wick the water out of sight! Wanted to add to my collection and ordered them directly from MH to get the various colors. They fit great, with one issue: the shirt is now two inches longer than before! Not as light as it used to be. The shirts are all now being hemmed. April 20, 2012
Best Polyester Tee Right Here! MHW pulled some sort of magic for the Wicked Lite Tee, I have one of the regular and a Double Wicked Lite Tee, both are awesome. I've worn several poly shirts, and to be honest, I find myself coming back to wear these tees over the others, including the Columbia Mtn Tech tees when I was an employee for Columbia. Like one of the posters below that from the military, you need to make a sand version so when I'm in the service, I can continue to buy an excellent product when I'm in the military. By the way, I should mention, it comes close to wearing almost nothing and wicking action is excellent. April 11, 2012
Best PT Gear I will never buy workout gear from anyone but Mountain Hardwear. The competition doesn't hold up as well when under a pack. The fit is great as is its ability to wick moisture. Buy one is every color. January 29, 2012
excellent best comfort and fit and style so far for this type of garment. i want more of these! January 11, 2012
Feather-weight workout shirt The Wicked Lite short sleeve tee is so thin and light you barely know you're wearing a top. It's a great shirt for running, biking, and other aerobic sports in warm and humid conditions. The fabric is very effective at wicking perspiration and dries extremely fast. Fit is athletic, but loose, comfortable, and long enough to drape effectively over running tights. January 6, 2012
awesome shirt! another great product. quick-drying, great for hot weather or everyday use. will probably buy more in the future. December 19, 2011
perfect wicking alone or as undershirt remains durable and comfortable after many wears/washes! October 25, 2011
Mens Wicked lite short sleeve tee Great fit and wicking ability. I'm 5'10" 185 and the large fits snug but not at all tight. Great shirt to exercise in. October 17, 2011
Chitosan works Breat fit and durable shirt. The Chitosan does a decent job of fighting the funk. October 4, 2011
A good workout shirt I have purchased a number of the wicked lite shirts. They are my general go-to shirt for everyday training. I do have occasional issues with the beefy seems causing some chafing long my back and my traps. I miss the old style of wicked lite where the seams were more basic, but the new style does look pretty cool. Overall, it's a good shirt, it does a good job of wicking without retaining too much moisture. Also, it doesn't get gross and stick to my body when I sweat, like some other workout shirts I have. September 6, 2011
Wicked Lite SS Tee Columbia/Mt Hwde., You need to produce this tee in sand color! I'd buy more to wear under my ABUs and I'm sure other Airmen, Soldiers, and Marines would do the same. I support your products as much as possible and I'd buy Mt Hwde. undergarments over the UA brand any day, hands downs. True fit and excellent product weight to wear when running in Savannah and Atlanta summer humidity. I'd even wear this as a base layer for colder weather activities. I've got extras stashed when I wear out my initial order. Thanks for producing high quality gear. August 23, 2011
Perfect Shirt I use this shirt for hiking, camping and it is awesome. Perfect shirt for summer temp here in Texas. Wicks moisture away. Dry's quickly and is very comfortable. June 30, 2011
Light and Dry Love this shirt. I have a few and plan on buying many more. I wear a med for running, hiking, and climbing. I wear a large on to work and out on the town. Great product. June 30, 2011
Great all-around shirt! The shirt is light and comfortable. I'm 5"9'', 175lbs with athletic build and the large fits just fine. Moisture wicking is great during hot and muggy Missouri summer. June 28, 2011
Great It fits perfect, looks great, and I love the fabric. I would purchase again, and will buy more in the future June 26, 2011
Wicked lite? NO! WICKED AWESOME! Agreeing with all the comments made before (I read a lot of reviews before buying this shirt). I have been through an experience with my shirt, and it was fantastic. I did jerk a thread out of the shirt by using a 40 year old boy scout pack (in bad repair), but otherwise, the shirt stayed dry and comfortable, especially when I didn't have a pack on. The breeze came right through, and it did not start smelling at all (something that is abnormal in my experience with wicking t-shirts). Also, this shirt was a very comfortably length for my long torso, didn't have any problems with it riding up funny or anything! I actually have two of these for packing in AZ this summer, and am very confident that they will turn in a good performance there also! BUY ONE! June 26, 2011
Wicked shirt These shirts are perfect for hot weather. I have several and use them for everything from running to fishing. I love them. June 21, 2011
