Rated 5 out of 5 by LanguageLover comfortable shirt
It is a thin fabric, very light and comfortable, it protects from UV. Great shirt for outdoors, biking and sunny days in general!

Rated 5 out of 5 by RQBEC Best knit ever, extremly cool!
I live in Ecuador in the tropics,blazing unforgiving perpendicular sun during summer. I wear long sleeves to protect me from exposure. When wearing this shirt there is a "breeze" under the material close to your skin. I would compare it to the effect of shadow under a tree that causes a breeze when you walk into it from a blazing sun with no breeze at all. Cool even with extreme temperatures. I use it for fishing and all around purposes. I even go in the ocean with it and afterwards go for walk and dries up in minutes. HIGHLY recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by fishwhisperer Kool and cool fishing and casual wear shirt
Good quality, stylish long sleeve functional fishing and casual wear shirt. Delivers on all counts. At 66 yrs. young standing about 6' on a good vertical day carrying 210 Lbs, with a "smallish" ; > ) paunch belly my XL Reg. feels true to advertized size and while comfortable and roomy, it is not baggy. The zipper pocket on front is a functional plus for various storage like a small fly box and/or ID, fishing license or keys however I can feel the interior part of the zipper on my skin. Yep..... personal issue but I suggest that LL B consider adding an inside thicker backing on it. Has great versatility and LL B offers for you that are not vertically challenged tall sizing too. Try one in your size and color choice. Hope you enjoy and use yours as much as I do.
A great value and a keeper for me but would like to see LL B add a collar to aid in keeping the sun off my already red neck and when needed for additional warmth at a price point in the $45.00 range. Tight lines and tips up.
Catch and Release,

I had to exchange the first one I got as it had a snag/stain on the front. Fast and easy return and replacement. Comfortable and perfect for fishing or getting there when the weather is cool.

This shirt is great except for the decorative stitching which chafes. As always, Bean has stood behind their product and exchanged for other merchandise.

Purchased this shirt to help with extreme heat and sun here in New Mexico. This shirt has performed fine except that the fabric develops snags in it. I realize that this will happen with this material but have another brand that has not done this. All and all a good shirt and am happy with my purchase.

by JMichShopper Fishing Shirt - Poor Choice of Materials
I really like the style of this shirt. However, the fabric makes it a poor fishing shirt. I've only worn it a few times and have several snags. A couple on the cuff and sleeve area. The confusing one is on the back of the shirt. The seams are doubled up which make me think the shirt should last if it were not of the choice of fabric.

My wife insisted I get one of these, as I spend a lot of time on the water and unfortunately am almost on a first name basis with my dermatologist. I have five other fishing shirts of the standard long sleeve type with the large pockets on the chest and the caped back. They do block the sun, the pockets are really handy for keeping a package of hooks for a quick re-tie after getting a tuna gaffed and the line cut, but they are beastly HOT. Minimal breathability at best, but I'd rather sweat than burn. I got a chance to try my new LL Bean Technical Fishing Shirt on a recent hot weather trip on Lake Erie. Cool and comfortable; what a difference! Got it all covered with fish blood and after an overnight soak in cold water with a small shot of detergent, followed by washing it according to instructions, it is as clean as new. The fabric will snag if you get against something sharp (I've got one small snag on a sleeve) but it isn't designed for abrasion resistance. I've got to get at least one more of these. If I can get the tuna oil out after an upcoming saltwater trip, I'll be ecstatic, but even if I can't this is the shirt I want to be wearing when I'm fishing in hot sunny conditions. Nice shirt!

I have purchased 2 of these and have been very happy. They do block the sun and here in New Mexico that is a must if you plan to be outside all day. Plan to buy all the colors in the future!
