Reel Legends Salt Water shirt is meant for a true fisherman made with a quick dry fabric that is fade resistant, plus offers UPF 30 sun protection & is fully vented at the back. Expandable front pockets on this shirt securely hold your belongings with a hidden zipper closure.

Disappointed to find it so different from the Castaway.

I ordered this after enjoying the Castaway Shirt with high hopes of a trimmer version, but while it looks similar, I was disappointed with this. The sizing is very different, a Medium castaway fits perfectly, I needed a small in this and it was still a tad large. The fabric used in this shirt was my biggest objection, it's practically non-breathing. Maybe this is where the "water repellant" comes from, but wearing it in 75 degree San Diego felt like walking around in Saran Wrap: I drenched myself. All the details of extra pockets are still there, and there are vents, but the shirt holds every bit of moisture inside and keeps any breeze out. Not Good.
No, I do not recommend this product.

How true to size do these run?

It fits large: I'm a normal Medium in everything, I needed a Small in this to get close. Beyond sizing, I don't recommend this shirt: "water repellant" fabric is nearly non-breathing, the Castaway is a better fit and better fabric.
