Rated 5 out of 5áby cturner1946 Great shirt
I own about 8 of these. They are well designed. Great protection from the sun. Fit true to size. I am usually wearing a long or short sleeve shirt underneath. Was glad to see they have a couple of new colors.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Nonna51 It does what I wanted it to
This shirt is very comfortable and lightweight and it did exactly what I had bought it to do. The sleeves rolled down were great for the cool morning we just had and then as the day warmed I rolled them up using the tabs. And then when it got even warmer, I just unbuttoned the the shirt and used it as a big shirt with a tank underneath. And what was even better - hand washing in the sink and then towel wrapping was enough to allow it to dry overnight. Perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5áby lindsmom comfortable and more
This shirt is not only practical, it's comfortable and easy to care for.
I ordered the blue and turquoise colors, now I wish I had ordered the pink. The extra small fit perfectly, true to size.

Rated 2 out of 5áby Curious1 Not helpful in high humidity
I purchased the shirt as a sun cover when kayaking. A nice sunny summer day in Wisconsin tends to be humid. My previous Bean shirt had open netting, maybe 3 inches, running full length down the side seams which cooled fairly well. This model is probably dandy in arid country and as a light overshirt cover but is not a friend in hot, humid weather (which I assume is common in the tropics).

Rated 4 out of 5áby Minniak Great way to protect from sun.
This is an attractive shirt which can protect your skin while keeping you cool. This is the second one I have purchased.

Rated 3 out of 5áby fisherwoman2 Tropicwear shirt
While the quality of this shirt is good, the cut is skimpy. I wear a 16 so I thought ordering a larger size would give me plenty of room to move. This is more fitted than I would like and the sleeves, especially, are tighter than I prefer. I won't order another one or will order a 1X if I do.

Rated 5 out of 5áby sprucefrost Excellent shirt for hot weather and travel!
I own 7 of these shirts, purchased over the past 2 years, and just ordered an 8th. They are perfect for long days in hot sun because the fabric wicks away moisture (perspiration) while providing excellent sun protection--neither of which cotton shirts of any weight are capable of doing. They also wash up very easily and dry in a flash. You can't do better than these for a hot weather shirt that also provides full coverage sun protection.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Romey Quality shirt
My initial reaction was disappointment when I opened the package and saw the color. It was not nearly the shade of blue I had expected from what I had seen on-line. But I tried it on and it fit perfectly. It was very well made and the color appeared to change depending on the lighting one was in. After wearing it one day at work, I can easily say that it will be one of my favorites.

Rated 3 out of 5áby UpWithTheSun Snug at the Hips
I just purchased this shirt since I have an older version from LL Bean that I love and use all the time. The fabric is GREAT and dries quickly while protecting me from the sun. I read the previous reviews and hoped that this would fit me in the hip area, which is does but too perfectly. Since I wear this shirt over summer shirts, shorts or bathing suits in hot weather to shield me from the sun, I prefer to have it a loose fit. I normally take a medium shirt and sometimes a small, but I need to return it for a large to see if that size fits me better. I am not thrilled with the colors offered for this shirt either. A NICE patterned one or more pleasant colors would be appreciated since I decided that white was my only option since I already had the pale green one. The other colors are pretty dull and the Bright Citrus is too loud. Please bring back the women's shirt that is NOT fitted at the hip for this one! Possibly a collarless one would make it look less like a man's shirt, too.
