Rated 4 out of 5 by NickZ Really warm shirt
Really warm shirt, does just what I wanted it to do at a reasonable price--have you seen some of the other wool shirt prices???
My only complaint is the liner on the neck should go up higher; the fold in the collar rubs you neck rather well if your jacket etc. is buttoned up. Its a small thing, maybe a silk turtleneck would help but I would appreciate it and buy another shirt if they modified it.
Well sized especially for other heavier undershirts that are part of the winter in the Northeast.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Holybean Vibrant green-exactly like catalog
Very nice outer wear. My only disappointment is that I didn't notice that it was dry clean only in the catalog. I know there are wools that are washable and suggest that this type of material be offered in the future as it would probably sell much better to more customers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by eriefisher Best bang for the buck
I bought this shirt after a fairly lengthy internet search that revealed it to be the best bang for the buck. I wanted a shirt, not an outer-layer jacket, so I ordered a medium, which is smaller than the large or x-large I sometimes order for layering. I was pleased with the fit, tho it was too tight in the underarm for any kind of layering other than a liner t-shirt. But that's what I wanted. The shirt was thinner than I anticipated, but it will probably wick faster that way, which is fine with me because it will used mostly for fishing. The color is beautiful. Haven't worn it to my next cold-weather fishing destination yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CaribouKid Only thing that kept me warm and dry!
Late August/early Sept. 2013 I spent 7 days camping and hunting on a ridge top in the Yukon-Charley River Preserve where my friends and I endured ceaseless wind, rain, sleet and snow. All of my synthetic garments, most costing much more than this shirt, became wet, never dried and were pretty much worthless (I'm returning those items to their manufacturers). The only item of clothing that kept me warm and comfortable was the Maine Guide Shirt that I bought just for this caribou hunt. I've always been a big fan of wool but, like many others, was seduced by the sexiness of the latest-greateast synthetics. If I did not have the Maine Guide shirt with me, my hunt would have ended early - I was that wet and miserable. Thanks for this shirt...I'm buying another and never leaving home on a fall/winter hunt without it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TDCthefirst What I hoped for
I just received my shirt today and decided to do an initial review on it. First off all, let me start by stating that I ordered the Large Tall. I am 6"2 and have a slim build. The shirt fits perfect all over but the sleeves are slightly long. (I believe a regular Large would be a little small in the shoulders). No biggie there.
The quality of the shirt appears to be solid. I think it will last for many years to come. The wool is thick. As other reviews have stated, it could be used as a shirt or a light jacket. Since I usually don't wear jackets around town, I will mostly wear it as a shirt. I figure I can tough out a short, cold walk from the car to the store. LOL.
For outdoor use, I will use it as a mid layer or outer layer with milder temperatures.
Love the shirt and the traditional Red plaid color!

Rated 5 out of 5 by stjaustin Maine Guide Shirt is Great!
I recently purchased this shirt for my son who lives in Michigan and is an avid outdoors man. I searched the internet and concluded this shirt was the best value for the price. When it arrived to my son, he immediately said it was exactly what he hoped for!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Lindy26 Not like they used to be
Over the years, I have purchased 4 wool Maine guide shirts from llbean for my husband. They have always worn like iron and very warm, heavy shirts. My husband would wear one for about 5 years, then I'd order another one. They never wore out. I would usually wear his oldest one around the house in winter. They were made in the USA or Turkey. Just received his new one and he remarked right away, that the material is no where near as heavy as his previous ones.The tag says made in Vietnam. Seems quite flimsy and we hope that it doesn't wear out right away. Not real pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MikeCMH Warm and comfortable to wear.
I ordered this shirt to replace a 20yr old wool shirt that unfortunately had worn out. This shirt looks and feels to be as good as the my old shirt. I've worn it on one 3 day winter steelhead fishing trip in PA and around my woods when cutting trees this past weekend. It feels great, is very warm, and doesn't let me sweat up like a cotton shirt. It's a great find at half the price of some other brands. Highly recommend it to all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hawkin What I was looking for!
Good color choices, fits great, sturdy material, warm, should last a few hunting seasons. I've been looking for a good Maine Guide shirt and finally found one!
