Rated 5 out of 5 by outdoorloverMD Tropicwear long sleeve plaid shirt
This shirt is perfect for me as I live in steamy south Florida. It's great for my fishing throughout the U.S. and it looks nice enough for casual dress. I travel a lot and need to have clothes and I can hand wash and know they'll dry quickly. This shirt has a more for-fitting design,and the plaid makes it stand out from the more traditional fishing shirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Freeportwannabee Provides for great protection from the sun
I have recently traveled to Maine for fly fishing and forgot my other (competitors) shirt at home. LL Bean had this shirt and I fit perfectly! It allowed for full range movement while fly fishing without bunching up. Truly protected me from the sun and glare from the water. It it well vented so you can wear it in the warmest days without overheating. Another great choice!

These shirts are great! I am always between sizes on LLBean shirts. XLT just a little too small and XXLT way too big. The sizing on these are perfect for me in an XXLT.
The fabric is a bit heavier than previous versions I own, and is nicer feeling and looking.
I have both colors and wish they would offer more. I work outside in a professional capacity and these shirts look great. I would order more if there were more colors available.

This is my fifth "sun block" shirt. It is, like the first four, cool, comfortable and more than fashionable.

A must for those who fish and hate to wear sunscreen. Fitted large, perfect for casting/canoeing. Breast pockets very usable. Sharp colors. Another high quality product from ll bean.

I really like this shirt. It is very nice looking. It is sun proof and very cool. These are nice attributes in Phoenix, Arizona. It goes well with khaki shorts. It is a keeper!

Rated 5 out of 5 by tropicsenior A great shirt...
This is my favorite shirt. I travel quite a bit and the tropic weight fabric used here is absolutely the best. I can pack for a week-long trip in one carry-on bag along with a briefcase. The wrinkles quickly disappear with no ironing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Leapin3 Terrific Shirt
I love these shirts. I've probably bought 25+ over the last 10 years. If I like a color, I buy two. One to use at home; one to use at the farm--that way I don't have to carry so many clothes back and forth!
I'm out in the sun quite a bit and doctors prefer I wear hat, long sleeve shirt, and long pants to protect myself and these shirts are just the ticket. Really like the velcro pockets for carrying id packet in one pocket and smartphone in other. They fasten securely so I don't worry about losing stuff from my pockets. This way I don't need to always be carrying wallet in pants pocket.
Having as many of these shirts in different patterns/colors it's about the only shirt I wear except for an tshirts occasionally. Nurse at one of my doctors offices commented on fact I'm always wearing one of the LL Bean shirts.
While on cruise ship another couple was seated at our table. We both had on almost identical shirts that were the same color. I later checked out his brand and found it cost twice as much.
I will admit it took me years before I found out the little loop above the left front pocket was for. Although I fish, I've never used it as a rod holder. Now I just have to find out what the little loop on the back is for!!!
