Rated 5 out of 5 by Pamunkey better than long underwear
I wear this is a base layer, and in the harsh weather it is great at keeping the heat in. I want to second the comments from another reviewer about the neck. The material is similar to the dual layer long underwear. But the neck on the river driver shirt is high and tight, It comes right up to your neck and gives you a feeling of being impregnable. The medium is a drop big for me, so I order the small, but I DO NOT dry in the dryer. It's got the wool. You know it will shrink. I am slowly replacing all my long underwear tops with the river driver shirts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Trexl Great go to winter shirt
A friend from the northeast recommended the river driver as a great base layer shirt for walking dogs in the worst winter weather and she was right! I bought a second one this year. For warmth it beats just a cotton thermal undershirt hands down.
Good weight, and so comfy I often sleep in them.
Technically you're supposed to dry them flat, but I bought them oversized and I tumble dry them on low and they shrink a bit, but still fit oversized, so works for me without the hassle of waiting for them to air dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dopin Very Comfy!
Previously purchased a "river driver" shirt & wanted another one. Got the "Double layer crewneck" by mistake. Cloth is same in both products. just right warmth for cooler days in & out of the house, etc. However, the neck fit is horrible on the double layer underwear crewneck (TA277213). It's way too big of an opening, coming down slightly on my shoulders resulting in constant chill vs the perfect fit and comfort of river driver model (TA237757). Also, I agree with another reviewer about the annoyance of the sewn in tag on the Double layer crewneck TA277213. The river driver does not have a sewn in tag = more comfort. Excellent product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Drots So versatile!!
Been looking for a long time for a garment that could be worn by itself, under a sweater , under a sports coat - whatever. This shirt fits the bill, which isn't too expensive for what you're getting! It can be worn outdoor work/casual, sporty or even dressy. BUT- I was warned that it would shrink - even following washing instructions precisely. I was told prior to buying this shirt that it would shrink one and a half to two inches. But they size a little large. Usually I wear a large tall (6'2",175') but tried on and bought a large. Washed it, dried it and it did shrink but fits beautifully! Again been complimented on this, another LL Bean product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBeaner978 Relaxed and warm fit
This is a wonderful long sleeve shirt to wear alone or as a base garment. I find myself wearing this shirt a lot that I went out and bought another pair to alternate between washes. I like the fact that it is wool and cotton blend. It keeps me warm for outdoor activities and yard work.The fitting is very relaxed and true to size. Just make sure you follow the washing instructions on the tag and you shouldn't have a problem with shrinkage. I'm already thinking about my third pair in another color. Thumbs up for a great shirt!

This shirt is wonderful, but quality control is a concern. Bought two of the shirts in different colors, same size. One was 1.5 inches shorter than the other.

Rated 5 out of 5 by skierB GREAT WAY TO STAY WARM--EASY PULL-OVER
So, just an occasional "pick" from the wool, felt a few times an hour--otherwise, a good fit and a good way to stay warm in the winter. I use these for cold days outside, working in the garage or on the patio or in the basement in the winter and on cooler days during the "shoulder" seasons. These add warmth without bulk! These fit snugly enough to hold in the heat, but are "loose" enough to pull over your head easily. Mine also worked well as "ski" (thermal) underwear for downhill skiing in the winter. [I have NOT washed them yet, so cannot comment on that (dry them flat as LLB says!).] ...I DO RECOMMEND THESE!

Rated 5 out of 5 by TomW27 Incredible Shirt
This is just an incredible shirt. I already ordered a second in the henley style. I love this shirt. I wear it as a mid-layer on my way to the gym or to shovel snow, and I wear it as a sweatshirt around my house. It is very comfortable, fits very well, and is just the right weight without being bulky.

Rated 4 out of 5 by RetiredShipper good buy
I purchased my third River Drivers Shirt in blue. The garment is great in the cold weather. You can wear it as a sweatshirt or you can layer it for extra warmth. This item comes recommended.
