Previously purchased a "river driver" shirt & wanted another one. Thought this was the same product & ordered it. Double layer 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 this 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 just right river driver model (TA237757). Also, I agree with another reviewer about the annoyance of the sewn in tag. The river driver does not have a sewn in tag = more comfort.

Rated 1 out of 5 by freestone Disappointing
It looked good. Sounded like a nice warm cozy gift. It arrived and was immediately clear to be bulky and heavy feeling. Husband said no let me wear it and wore it anyway. After the first washing (washing/drying instructions followed to the "T") it was smaller and very scratchy along with being heavy. It will be sent back. One of the very few disappointments from from llbean ever. We got the blue color.

by NNYguy Looks good on paper....
While the write up may be enticing, mine is disappointing. Although the first wearing proved warm & comfy, the first wash/dry (warm/air-dry) took a medium to a small---as in "shrunk!" But before that, the mid-abdomen, sewn-on label is horrible---feels like a constant bug-bite---and the stitching would need to be cut in order to fully remove it. Definitely will return it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ArchitectDave Base Layer Fan!
I am a big base layer fan. I hunt and spend a good deal outdoors. I prefer layers over bulky clothing and only wear heavy coats in the most extreme weather. So, naturally, I look to wear several layers at a time in winter or when sitting in a tree. I love this shirt as a base layer for standard day-to-day activities when the weather is cold (I would not recommend it for hunting). It is comfortable against the skin, and although is thicker than most base layers, it more than compensates in regards to the thermal performance it provides. It is not a 'sweat-proof' base layer like a 'wick-a-way' product that pulls moisture away from your skin, but is extremely comfortable and warm. I purchased this as a warm base layer for day-to-day outdoor activities and to take the edge off when inside on a cold day...it does the job well.

Perfect fit, fantastic materials, excellence in construction. Glad to see quality returning to LLBean and buying from the Americas again. These are not just great for out of doors, I keep a full set of uppers and bottoms to wear like PJ's.

This shirt is very but even with the cotton lining, I have to wear long sleeve something underneath to keep torso, arms from itchiness and the collar is unlined wool and extremely itchy - I am thinking I will have to sew part of old thick cotton shirt over it. Didn't send it back only b/c we are in the midst of another Chiberian winter and it is really warm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by firecrackerboy perfect fit! Exceptional quality!
I have searched many times for quality thermals but always came away disappointed. Not this time! Bean's thermals are of exceptional quality and fit perfectly! For anyone looking for thermals, look no further! Bean has what you need!

Rated 3 out of 5 by SoCalConsumer Purchase a Size Up
This is a great insulating shirt. I purchased it as a gift for my husband who works in a location with no control over the thermastat. Unfortunately after washing the shirt according to the manufacturer's instructions, it shrank. So, I ended up with a shirt for ME out of the transaction. I'll try again, and order another one a size larger for my long suffering husband.
