Rated 5 out of 5 by EnglishRobin10 Galapagos bound
Purchased this shirt in blue for a 1st foray into the tropics. Being very cautious of being in the sun too long, I appreciate the long sleeves as well the vents in the back and the extra protection in the expandable back collar. Although it is not inexpensive, am pleased with the investment and the blue is a rather pretty periwinkle shade. The xs is a tiny bit roomy but this may turn out to be a bonus.

Rated 2 out of 5 by dickswife GREAT SHIRT FOR REPELLING THOSE BUGS
I LOVE THE SHIRT - THE SIZING IS GOOD BUT THE POCKET ON THE BOTTOM IS NOT BIG ENOUGH FOR A HAND OR AN IPHONE. THE SMALL BUTTON ON THE SLEEVES COULD BE MORE ACCOMMODATING AS IT IS TOO SMALL AND THE BUTTONHOLE LIKEWISE.
OTHER THAN THESE ITEMS YOU WILL LOVE TO BE PEST FREE.

Wore this shirt on first long camping trip = black fly season. It did the job it was "hired" for. Found that for being "Slightly Fitted" was more than ample in the body to allow under cami.
Suggestion: As the collar button snaps are hidden, why not construct one side with reversed snaps to allow for buttoning together when collar is pulled up for heavy fly "attacks".

Great sun & insect protection! I wore this shirt in Ecuador & the Galapagos Islands. I am very fair-skinned, & this shirt successfully protected me from sunburn. Love the
zippered pockets on the chest & at hem. I used the extended collar a lot to keep the sun off the back of my neck. Washed it at night in the sink, rolled it in a towel then hung to dry -- it was always dry by morning. I am 5'5", 117 lbs & the Small fits just right. I highly recommend this shirt!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cathymex Best ever shirt
Flattering shirt that can even be a little dressy worn with the right skirt or trousers. No shirt-tails, just a nice hem to be worn out. I bought the grey, then got the red which I love even more. I am a size 10-12 and 5'7 and the medium is slightly loose, the way I like it. if there were more colors, I would get another.
OK the collar is a little unusual, but that makes it more interesting.
I have other LLBean shirts and this is the best.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LoveMyCorgis Need Plus Sizes
I like the shirt very much. If this came in Plus Sizes, I would have ordered one in every color. This shirt in XL fit very well except in the bust. LLBean, plus sized women need protection from the sun and insects also. I would have given it 5 stars if it came in Plus Sizes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CASushee No Zika Zone
I'm off for a Caribbean cruise in three weeks and our itinerary includes the Mayan ruins in Cozumel, Mexico. Since the CDC has put Mexico on the Zika Virus list, I wanted something to accompany the bug sprays to protect me from mosquitos while visiting the ruins. I chose the coral shirt, a lovely tropical color, and am glad that the shirt sleeves are versatile as a long sleeve or a rolled up button tab style. Unlike a previous reviewer, I'm a petite gal and don't consider the shirt too long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dixiedoodle NOT FOR PETITES
I really hated to return this shirt. I loved the fabric, style and especially the clay color. It was just what I was looking for. However, it is way too long for someone who is 5'2" tall. There is a nice zippered pocket at the bottom of the hem so shortening the shirt would be complicated.
Please offer this shirt in petite sizing.

I have been in search of a long sleeve shirt to use for both sun protection and insect avoidance. This shirt is awesome. It is incredibly soft and comfortable. It is perfect for travel, hiking, backpacking and kayaking. There are many thoughtful details such as the hem pocket, the extension on the back of the collar to allow for neck protection, the roll up sleeves and back vents. I am typically a 12 Tall in shirts ( have very long arms and wide shoulders). The Large fits loosely which is perfect for layering. It kept the Mosquitos away in my trial run. The blue is a lovely color.
This shirt is a keeper. Perfect for outdoor activities and It is nice enough to wear out to a restaurant while traveling. Hears hoping that this shirt is made in many more colors.
