Rated 5 out of 5áby Taime One of my favorite shirts.
These shirts are comfortable in heat, humidity, or cool weather, dry fast, don't hold onto most stains, block the sun well, and they just wear like iron. I wear them almost everyday, 3 seasons of the year.
I'm 5'4", 118lbs., 34B chest. I have worn 3 sizes of this shirt - Large, for a time when I gained weight after an injury, I went up to about 155lbs. At that weight the shirt fit perfectly but I couldn't layer a shirt under it comfortably.
Medium, my normal size, which fits me slightly loose, and is perfect across the back and shoulders when I'm active, no tightness, and which I can layer a t-shirt fine.
Small, which fits me overall, not tight until I reach with my arms all the way forward at the same time, then a little tight across back and shoulders. I wear that size for when I won't be active and want a trimmer fit.
The sleeve length was good on all the shirts I bought. None of the shirts shrank, even after several wash/dry cycles.
If LL Bean changes these shirts, I'll be very unhappy!

Rated 5 out of 5áby camoQT Confortable ...
I just love these shirts. I have them in all colors. They wash like a dream. Pop them in the dryer and that's it. You can wear them for fishing or out to dinner.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Manancy Perfect shirt...
I have this shirt in many colors, long and short sleeved. It is my favorite for running to town and hiking/walking in the hills. Doesn't wrinkle, dries fast when caught in a shower, and the vents let the breezes flow. I have spilled coffee down the front and had no trouble getting the stain out. I don't tuck it into pants or skirts and think it still looks presentable.

Very disappointing that you changed the fit on this traveler's shirt. The old one was perfect. This one is too fitted, doesn't allow much room for a tee under it, and isn't vented. Maybe less pockets. I told a friend who planned to order one not to bother! Sorry.

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.
