Rated 5 out of 5 by darthemma perfect warm-weather shirt to keep the bugs away!
I needed a light-weight summer shirt with long sleeves to work in the yard or go fishing in the Florida sun when I visit friends there. I seem to attract mosquitos, so it's nice to have a shirt that discourages them. This shirt is perfect for that!
The material is wonderful! It is soft and not too heavy for warm weather, but it's not sheer either.Perfect. I'd buy many more of these if you offered more colors.
Being a woman, I wish you'd make this shirt in plus sizes for women. I bought this men's version of this shirt and it's wonderful, but of course it's cut for a man, so it looks blocky on me and the sleeves and tail are a bit too long. I had a friend take up the sleeves for me, so at least the sleeves fit. Anyway, the fabric is amazing. I would LOVE to have several of these in women's plus size!

Rated 5 out of 5 by AllenK Exceptional Shirt!
I've loved this style for years, but the various sources always sold a pattern that didn't fit me (sleeves to short, baggy in the tummy, etc.). The Bean's shirt fits perfectly (i'm a 17/37 dress shirt, so not easy to fit): the XL tall was just the ticket.
I was initially skeptical, because of the price, but with the superb fit, quality tailoring, insect treatment, and sun screening, this is an exceptional buy. Looks like it will last for years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ChattownLLBeanLover Great shirt for any occasion
I own three - Clay, Dusty Olive and Mid Blue - and would buy more if offered in other colors. Terrific shape and texture. Fabric is top-notch. Look great untucked in formal or office settings. Works great in outdoor settings, too - SPF, repels bugs, pockets work like a charm. For a concealed weapons carrier like, me, it also works for IWB or OWB carrying - ease of draw and access to weapon, but cut of shirt hides fact that you are carrying. I have recommended this shirt to many people - because it always draws compliments, that's easy to do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ChopperMom Might as well have packed nothing else
I bought this for my husband for a trip to buggy Alaska. But once he put it on, he was loathe to wear anything else. He'd never tried a shirt with so many packets before and he was in love. So now I'm buying another one in another color - because it's really pushing it to wear the same shirt 5 days in a row. And yes, it works to discourage the bugs.

This shirt is well made, very comfortable and I really like the zippered chest pockets which are great for sunglasses, fly box, a passport, lens caps etc. I also love that the Tall version has sleeves long enough for a 6'6"" guy.

I appreciate the wide variety of "tall" items at L.L Bean. This shirt is well made. The sleeves are a slightly long for me relative to the length of the shirt. The material is soft and feels great. I now have two of these shirts.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Davidsut Size is wrong
I ordered two shirts from LL Bean size large. I also have several other size large shirts from LL Bean. The sleeves on the No Fly shirt are about two inches longer than all the other shirts. They are all regular fit so I don't know why there is such a difference in the No Fly sizing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Donbeans Everyone (and Bean) should Read the Reviews
This is an excellent shirt, but it took longer than necessary to get one that fit. I buy a lot of clothing from Bean and have for many years. I always read the customer reviews. A number of customers commented that this shirt ran very large in each size. I assumed that Bean's quality control people had remedied the problem with the manufacturer by now and ordered a Large which is my size and is the size the Bean size chart stated I should buy for this shirt. My assumption and the size chart were both wrong. I had to send the shirt back and order a Medium, which fit perfectly even though I haven't worn a Medium for many years. I then ordered another No Fly Zone shirt in a different color, in a Medium of course! Someone at Bean should read the customer comments and either remedy the problem with the manufacturer, if there is a problem, or add a note to the web page and the size chart which alerts people to buy this shirt a size smaller than they generally wear

Rated 4 out of 5 by PaulHD Great Shirt, But...
This is a really nice shirt! I like how thin and breathable it is, and especially the huge zippered pockets! But the collar gives my neck a rash, so I am returning it (maybe my neck doesn't like the bug repellant?). Please make this shirt without the bug repellant!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Boxcar6 Best of its kind
This version is the best lightweight fishing shirt Bean has ever produced. It's the one that finally combines all the features that I look for: two buttons on the cuff, small button midway on the cuff split (so you can roll the sleeves up with two folds up to the mid-forearm and it stays in place), button down collar (they actually snap), tall sizes, interior mesh, vertical back vents, and vertical pockets and traditional hem. Some of these features have been been on shirts in the past, but they're finally all in one shirt. I've got one in every color including the camo and they're the last shirts I'll ever need.
