Rated 4 out of 5 by Doofus Well done
I wore this during a ten-day river cruise in Europe. It fit the bill: easy to wash; dries overnight with only minor wrinkling; lightweight but with good wind resistance, neutral color makes it a good part of multiple ensembles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by akasrp Wear it almost every day!
Have been wearing these for years. I live in the Mojave desert and the UV is always off the charts. I do a lot of hiking year round and have found no better shirt. Ventilation is excellent. Fit is true. I am 6'/165 and wear the M Tall. My only wish is for new colors! ;-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by queentertle Very nice shirt!
I bought this shirt after a long search to find a sun protective shirt in a women's plus size. Apparently no one thinks plus size women are active outdoors. This men's shirt fits well, covers the back of the neck and is comfortable in warm weather. L.L. Bean is my new go to supplier for active wear.

by Yooperlover Fantastic shirt!
Purchased 3 shirts as part of my very limited items for three weeks in Alaska. Total pack, clothing, etc. was 15 lbs. Fifteen flights, motor coach and old school bus miles, train, and boat trip, washing out clothes in sinks as needed, with no ironing, and these shirts looked/felt GREAT the next wearing. They shed food/drink/dirt EXTREMELY well. They resisted body odors and looked fine even after a fourth day of wearing if sink washing was not performed. Did wear a poly-t under garment.. Matter of fact, I only wore two of the shirts the whole trip. The third didn't come out of the pack. Alaskatastic product for me!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Melv Awful color
The shirt itself is not bad but I ordered the "pastel lime" which, in the picture is a muted color. The actual color is more like the bright yellow/green of a road worker's safety vest. If you buy this shirt, avoid this color choice [unless, of course, you need a safety vest color.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by oDKo Comfortable, Light shirt
This shirt fits loose, provides protection against the sun, and keeps me comfortable when it's warm or hot. I like the roomy, Velcro sealed pockets and the strap to hold the sleeves up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by swick great shirt for summer heat
I seem to have bought this shirt just as a heat wave enveloped the Northeast. I've worn it probably five days a week for a month. The fabric is the most comfortable in hot weather I've ever had. Perspiration wicks or evaporates away so efficiently the shirt doesn't get soaked with sweat. A plus is that the shirt looks good, too. Rinse it out, put it through the spin cycle, hang it up, it's good to go the next day.
Now for my quibbles. At this price point, the shirt should be perfect. And for pennies on the dollar, Bean can make it perfect. First, the buttons. They are way too small for man fingers. They are as small as the collar buttons on some button-down shirts. Give me bigger buttons, please.
Now the button size is really annoying when trying to use the sleeve-roll up tab. This is an operation that has to be done one-handed.
Second, the sleeve roll-up feature is messy. The side of the sleeve with the tab stays up, the other side tends to keep trying to slide back down your forearm. If your are doing yardwork etc, anything that involves extensive use of your arms, you'll find yourself constantly pulling the sleeves back up (if you are wearing them rolled). This problem could be solved by using two tabs on each sleeve (with bigger buttons!)
And yet--when I see that the forecast is for 85 degrees or so, I reach for this shirt. I'm glad Bean sells it.

I have sensitive skin and need to cover up from the sun. This shirt does a perfect job of protecting me. It is comfortable and washes nicely. I bought a men's medium because I like it roomy.
