Rated 2 out of 5áby MaryFloridaDiver Run way small
I like the style and quality of the shirt, but it runs way, way too small. I usually wear a Large, but ordered an XL large expecting it to be loose and roomy for the hot muggy Hawaiian and Florida days. The XL fit like a Medium and the material doesn't budge and inch. Couldn't button it at the bust. Quality doesn't matter if you can't fit into it. Manufacturer doesn't go by normal US sizing standards. Now I need to pay to ship it back. What a waste!

Rated 4 out of 5áby GoldenRetrieverTaosLover Nice weight for summer
I purchased the light green long sleeve shirt and it has been a good quality addition to the summer wardrobe--mostly used as a shirt to wear over a tank or T-shirt. It is light weight and seems to keep mosquitoes away. However, there are a few issues like the buttons are a bit difficult, the shoulders seem too large for the rest of the shirt, and the pockets are not really usable as the velcro is a heavy weight and to stuff nearly anything in a breast pocket looks odd. It runs small (I usually wear a L with LL Bean shirts and in this case XL is none too big overall). Despite its issues, it is a good weight, good quality, and so I ended up buying a white long sleeve and several of the short sleeves. Wearing these over a tank works best for me.

Rated 5 out of 5áby AZsue Good quality and versatile shirt
I have several of these shirts; they are good quality, fit well, wash and dry perfectly and always look nice. They work as hiking shirts and in more formal settings as well.

I have two of these shirts and really love them. Except . . . who approved the buttons? They're a strange material and so difficult to get through the button holes that sometimes I just give up (on the sleeves, not the front, lol). I want another one.

Have had this shirt before and that is why I bought it again! Very satisfied with a durable, quality product.

Rated 5 out of 5áby MichiganLightfoot Perfect outdoors shirt
I bought the lapis quarts and pale lavender. Both colors were soft and pastel as pictured. I'm 5'4" and 134 lbs. and the mediums fit perfectly. The style is fitted without being tight (and I'm a little on the busty side). Loved that the buttons were spaced so they don't pull apart with a gap at the bust when I move around. I've washed and they've stayed in perfect condition. I've worn them for golf, hiking, sailing, and bicycling. I stayed fresh and cool, not hot and sunburned. Love these shirts.

I wear the shirt over tank tops to protect my skin from the sun. The fit is comfortable and it falls just below the waist.

Rated 2 out of 5áby Caledonian Not for me
I understand the idea behind this and totally agree with the need to protect ourselves from the sun. But, the style!? Not so hot (no pun intended).

I use this shirt as a cover up at the beach. It protects me from the sun and the multiple pockets are very handy. It's well made, very cool and dries quickly. It is lined with a netting material on the top across the chest and back for ventilation. My only complaint about the shirt is that the netting is mildly scratchy and feels heavy. I had a previous version of this shirt and the netting was softer and more comfortable. I hope LL Bean can go back to the softer netting.

Perfect, washes well, dries quickly, perfect pockets for camera, etc., including zipper pocket for ID. I like the light blue color, too.
