Rated 2 out of 5 by Outdoor41 just not worth the $
I bought this, wore it on a trip. The color is a bit awkward, but I think its part of the insect protection. Had no issues with the mosquitos, so I guess it works. But I can't help but feel that I just paid too much for this product. Buyer's remorse I guess.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ZaFish I wish it was odour-proof
I love this shirt for fly fishing. Fits well, feels good, and I like the thumb loops for extra sun protection so I don't get a bracelet of sunburn between my shirt sleeve and my gloves.
BUT if this shirt gets wet, especially with saltwater, it will smell terrible by the end of the day. I have noticed this with two of these shirts. Let me emphasise that I am not leaving a wet shirt in a heap at the bottom of a travel bag or a laundry hamper for days. I really mean that by the end of the first day that you've worn the shirt, it stinks.
And it's not that I have particularly bad body odour or sweat more than the next guy. The shirt only smells exactly where it gets wet - the wrist cuffs from getting your hands in the water, for example. Moreover, I have many other similar sun shirts from other fishing apparel brands, and none of them have this problem.
This is a real pity because other than this odour issue, this is one of the best flats fly-fishing shirts I've ever owned. I won't be buying another one until LLBean starts to use an odour-proof or quicker-drying fabric in these shirts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Doubletime a little tight-but works as stated
I bought one of these because I had some overdue yard work to do and wanted the protection this shirt offered. I have worn both this shirt and the LL Bean No Bug hat while working outside several times until sunset. I can say that I have not received any bites through this shirt. I have had a bite on my hands and one on the face, but I should have used 'Off'. .So the material in this shirt work as stated. However, for me this shirt fits a little tight; like a t shirt. Even the sleeves are tight around my arms. It is not uncomfortable, but I think the fit could be a little more generous. The size on this shirt is stated as XL Reg. XL is my normal size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MLKG Outragesouly Comfortable
If you like to be outdoors in spring to fall weather, buy these.
I bought one and instantly ordered all the rest the same day.
Comfortable beyond my expectations. Will be perfect for sailing, fly fishing, hanging out. I've already worn them in warm weather and amazed at how cooling they are. Better than the previous Technical Fly Fishing Shirts. Smoother, lighter, cooler..
If you like the outdoors in summer, these are essential.
