Rated 5 out of 5 by avnpa123 Easy exchange
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.

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!

Just purchased another one, great fit, great feel, size is appropriate,I am 5'-10" and 160 lbs and the Med. fits perfect. Any lingering odor left behind from my A.T. hike with my first shirt, came right out in the wash. For outdoor adventures I.e... Fishing, Canoeing Hiking etc... this shirt cannot be beat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Macgyver cool weave fishing shirt
Well built, light, and long enough both in the sleeves and the waist. It held some odor, and when I wash it I am hoping it disappears. Will purchase another in the near future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MainerlostinMD Best on the water shirt ever
I bought two of these for a Caribbean trip, where I was going to be in the sun, on the beach and on the water. This shirt was perfect at preventing me from burning, and it was super comfortable and cool. As long as LL Bean continues to offer these I will continue to use these as my go to wear in the sun shirt.
