If I had a boyfriend and he had a Stio Harkin Snap Shirt, I’d steal it. Luckily, I’m single and don’t have to share this fancy shirt with anyone.

Made out of a fabulously floral-patterned polyester material that’s water- and wrinkle-resistant and provides some wind protection, the Harkin Snap Shirt is both fun and functional.

The Harkin Snap Shirt is only available in men’s sizes, so the fit is loose and baggy on my curves, just like a boyfriend’s shirt. I like that it’s loose because I wear it more often as a lightweight jacket. It’s ideal for Seattle weather, where it’s always drizzling but never too cold. I wear the Harkin Snap Shirt over a merino base layer for active outings and over a cotton or hemp tee for casual wear. It looks great with jeans, with trail pants, with travel pants. Best of all, it’s lightweight and very packable.

The Harkin Snap Shirt is ideal for weekend getaways in temperature weather when I want to travel light. It breathes pretty well; it also dries quickly. I also love the snaps, which make getting in and out of the Harkin Shirt a breeze.

I admit I wanted this shirt just for the fun fabric, but I’ve been happily surprised how often it has turned out to be exactly what I needed for light weather protection and for enough breathability to perform well  during active outdoor outings. Win win.

Available in men’s sizes S-XL in two bold retro floral colors: blue or brown.

Bottom Line: A versatile activewear and travel top for all seasons.
