The REI Sahara long-sleeve shirt was what I wore through NM and CO (the part
of the CDT I hiked starting in May 2009).  I also stashed maps, etc., in the
large chest pockets.  Big thumbs up for those.  The sun protection was
excellent for me and I am a pretty pale fellow.  I would wear it again.

On the PCT I wore a Patagonia Runshade or something like that.  The
mosquitos definitely could bite my shoulders through it.
