I used my shirt on an adventurous kayak trip on Christmas Bay. It was low tide with lots of muddy spots to get stuck on. It was a sunny and windy day. I was in full sun for 4.5 hours and got very muddy. The shirt performed great. It was comfortable, protected me from sunburn and washed clean (this really surprised me.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by paleinSeattle Sun-Protective shirt
I wanted this as a swimming shirt when I go to Hawaii. I returned it, however because the neck was a little lower than I'd hoped. It's fine as a shirt but I wanted to protect my neck a bit more and didn't realize it would be the normal neckline that it is. It was excellent quality and the color was true to the picture. Just looking for something a bit different.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jtubabeck Excellent for swimming
I purchased 2 Hydro Shirts, one for my wife and the other for our niece since they were going to Hawaii for the first time. My wife called yesterday raving about how well the shirts worked to protect them from the cooler than expected Pacific while snorkeling. The shirts dry quickly and were perfect for the whale watch trip. Overall an excellent surprise since she didn't think they would need them!

Rated 4 out of 5 by CoastsideMom Sizing is actually appropriate for this one
I'm a long time LL Bean shopper and have been so frustrated lately because everything I buy for myself seems to be waaaay too big, and the ladies clothes just seem to be cut for larger women rather than smaller women. Knowing this, I ordered this top in the XS (I'm usually a small, 5 ft 4 in, 122 lbs, but with a chest), and it's way too tight (so it's actually a true XS, who knew). Sigh....sent it back and ordered the size small, which I'm hoping isn't going to be too big.
Aside from sizing issues the top is beautiful, the light blue color is so pretty and the quality looks good.

This shirt was much nicer than others I tried.
The sleeves are loose enough and comfortable
The fabric is great also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gingerjean Terrific top
I have recently returned from five weeks in the Caribbean most of which was spent in the water. I wore this top every day whilst snorkeling and it protected me from the sun and jelly fish stings. It rinsed out and dried in a jiffy and looked just as good at the end of my holiday as it did at the beginning. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by rosmarinus Keeps me warm in pool during senior aquacize
Senior aquacize in an indoor pool is part of the winter program at my local YMCA. We hop up and down & swing our arms to Elvis singing "Don't Step on my Blue Suede Shoes.". My arms were cold until my daughter recommended a waterproof jersey. It is excellent--warm, comfortable & light weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MNbaby Great swim top
I purchased this swim shirt to wear on a trip to the beach with my husband and two small children. I wanted something to block the sun as I have difficulty remembering to reapply my own sunscreen after reapplying the sunscreen on my children. It worked very well and I left with no sunburn on the areas the shirt covers. I had worried that I would be hot wearing this on the beach but I was very comfortable on an 80+ degree day in full sun. I would definitely purchase this shirt again in the future.

I am very pleased with the shirt....the sleeves are long and the neck is very comfortable. The fabric dries quickly and is perfect for my water aerobics classes at 8:45 a.m. each morning.
