Rated 5 out of 5 by redwingedblackbird Comfortable
I bought this T a few months ago for treadmill (sweaty) workouts. Now I'm back to buy another one. It is extremely comfortable and dries amazingly fast - by the time I walk from the treadmill to the gym, it's dry. I recommend it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by KKGH order a size up
This top would have been fine but fits way too snugly. I usually get a medium in LLB tops although some exercise tops need to be a large...and this turns out to be is one of the latter. It runs a full size smaller than the other LLB t shirt type tops. The cobalt color was nice, but M was as big as it got so I'm out of luck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tennbarb COOL shirt
By cool, I mean, not only cute BUT is comfortable and COOL in hot weather due to whatever trade secrets in the fabric and the mesh panels (which are cleverly disguised and don't look like mesh). I ordered an XL (5'10 inches tall, 150 lbs) because I want to wear these shirts to exercise and want them loose and not fitted. Played basketball in the one I ordered and stayed cool! Next day, used another similar shirt (not LL Bean) and it was so hot that today, I am ordering three more for our TN summers. This shirt is a winner. You could easily wear this as a top with jeans and it would be plenty cute! Great for serious exercise, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by luna1 Nice fit, soft fabric
I like the amount of coverage, a little more through the sleeve for cooler days but not overkill. Slightly fitted, flattering. Material is soft and smooth, unlike some of their other fitness shirts. Make more clothes with this fabric!

Rated 4 out of 5 by CarolCola No tugging on too short Tee tops
I have two of these tops I bought for yoga. They stay tucked in without riding up or needing adjustment halfway through class. The colors look good with black yoga pants. I like the neckline, not so high as to get a choking sensation, not too low to get boobs hanging our. Fit is snug but not binding. Wash up well & so far have managed a trip through the dryer on high ( not on purpose, though). Sleeves are just right. I like the flat fell seams as I tend to get skin irritation from over-sewn seams. I have one in my regular size & one a size larger & I can't tell much difference. My only small quibble is I don't find them as good at wicking away perspiration as one might expect.

Love the neck and love the sleeves. I think the neck is perfect for my needs. For some of us a higher neck is not only more flattering, but is more practical. It is warmer when layered underneath for hiking on cool mornings and offers better sun protection. Plus no b**by gap, when you bend over. Along with other reviewers I like the nice regular length sleeve. I won't buy any tops with those teeny tiny excuse for sleeves cap things.
The color, dark fuchsia is true to what was shown, the fabric feels good, and the print detail is a nice touch. The top washed well, delicate cycle, warm water, and tumbled medium heat.
After reading the other reviewers noting the slim fit, and because I like to have plenty of ease in the shoulder I ordered a medium. I am 5'5" 124 lbs, 34 B-C bra. Across the shoulder fits well. Although I am not pear shaped, it is a bit snugger than I like in the stomach/hips. As others have noted the top is a bit clingy. When worn with pants that have any more details than found on yoga pants, the pant seams show through the top. It would be nice to have just a bit more ease across the hips, or perhaps this top could be offered in a different fit. The top is just a bit too long but I am fine with that. Perhaps if in my regular size small it would have been just right. Better a little long than too short.
I am giving this 4 stars. If there was more ease in the lower part I would give it 5.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NorthDog Great hiking shirt
I love this shirt! It has real sleeves! I'm not a fan of capped sleeves. If I want sleeves, I want sleeves! While it's slighted fitted, it's not tight. Great wicking material. By far, my favorite outdoor activity shirt. I bought two of them last year and am ordering another two.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lovenature nice, soft shirt
I like the fit and feel of this shirt for hiking. The material is the softest technical material that I have ever come across. It does run tight so size up if you like shirts looser. I do wish llbean made this shirt in brighter colors and in a slight v neck, which is more feminine. I have the bold orchid and it is pretty but I would have liked it to be more vibrant and less muted. The color is definitely not as bright as the picture.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Frenesi Great Quality T-shirt
Just out of the bag, I was impressed by the quality construction and soft feel of the fabric. The green is a true emerald colour. The mesh panels and print give this garment a high-end look.
I had ordered the large size, listed as 40-41 1/2 inches. For reference, I am 5'6", 140ish, with a 40" bustline wearing an Olga minimizer 38D or a zip-front sports bra. A high-impact jogging bra takes 2" off the bustline.
I was surprised how snugly the t-shirt fit. It is a bit clingy, so in future I will try the extra large size in similar items here. But I am happy that LLBean always sends the size I've ordered!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LaBibliotecaria Everything about this fitness tee is perfect
This is the softest fitness tee I have ever used! The lightweight fabric is very comfortable. I was a little bit worried about the neckline ? it looks too high up on the model?s neck, and I wouldn?t want to feel like I?m choking. However, since the fabric is soft and lightweight, the neckline is almost unnoticeable. It also prevents cleavage from showing (which is completely inappropriate during exercise). The longer length prevents the shirt from rolling up when I raise my arms during yoga and workout. As with other fitted style LL Bean tees, I always order one size up for a relaxed and comfortable fit, and this shirt is no exception. For reference, I am 5?3? and 125 lbs. with 34A bra size. I ordered size S (instead of my usual size XS) and paired it with Fitness Crop Pants. If you?re OCD like me, you?ll be thrilled to know that the seams of the tee and pants are impeccably aligned. I ordered Dusk Gray color and I had hoped it would be a darker shade as pictured on the computer. It turned out to be a lighter shade, more like Ash Gray, but I like all shades of gray so I am still satisfied with the color. However, I do hope that LL Bean would consider offering this product in a darker shade of gray, similar to the Granite color of Fitness Crop Pants. Dusk Gray was also on further reduced price when I ordered it, which I think is the most reasonable price for this tee. The regular price and sale price both seem too expensive.
