I'm out in the South Florida sun all day and I wear mostly Fishing Tech shirts to help block sun and stay cooler. I usually buy Columbia, Hook and Tackle and Bass Pro Shops shirts. I ordered 3 of the Bealls Reel Legends shirt because the style was right and the choice of colors. Also the shirts are a bargain compared to comparable fishing tech shirts. I ordered Large which is what I would wear in similar brands but found they were a little too big. So I ordered 3 more shirts in Medium. The quality of the material is good and the workmanship appears to be OK. I'm not crazy about the material. The fabric is light weight and dries quickly but does not wick perspiration as much as I had hoped. It tends to holds moisture to you body and does not breath as much as I would like. This is true on other brand shirts too so it's not a deal breaker for me. To be fair, I've only found one reasonable priced Outdoor World brand shirt that the material did wick and keep you dry and unfortunately it was discontinued. Go figure. The Bealls Reell Legends shirt open back design allows air to escape through vents which does work. I can't comment on the durability of the material since I've only worn the shirts a couple of times. These shirts are work shirts for me and time will tell if they can survive rough treatment and harsh environments. I will say the colors are bright and the pocket design is functional and attractive.
Yes, I recommend this product.

does it have zipper in chest pocket like the short sleeve model

Both right and left front pockets have vertical zippers. This is the feature I was looking for. I prefer these pockets because they lie flatter and are easier to get in and out of. Seems like stuff would just fall out when you opened the side pocket style but I don't unzip it all the way. Just open the top and zip it up to keep valuables from falling out.
