Rated 5 out of 5 Go to summer shirt
You always need a few "go to" shirts in the Summer. I was fortunate enough to find one of mine early on.
Out at night or to the beach, I like it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Nearbolt Horrible Sizing- Are you sure this isn't Eurosized
Great material but absolutely way off on the sizing- the arms and chest are really off

Rated 3 out of 5 by fltennisbum Tight fit, size up when ordering, does not have UV
Fire color is great. The fit is tight as other reviews have stated. Does not have UV protection. But if UV protection is not necessary and the fit is good it is a great looking shirt.

I love this shirt. Use it for hiking and climbing. It is very lightweight and the fabric is supple and comfortable. And best of all, it has none of those silly vents that add weight and bulk and accomplish nothing. I mean, are you too warm? Then unbutton the front and roll up your sleeves. Duh! But vents are the fashion and it's been hard to find a good outdoor shirt without them. Thank you, Bean.
However, this shirt runs smaller than most from Bean. I am reliably a Small in other Bean shirts, but had to return my Cool Weave and exchange it for a Medium. In other Bean shirts, I'd swim in a Med, but for this one, that is the right size for me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by active66 way to small
I have always worn a men's medium. This shirt was sized way too small. I could barely get it on and the "long" sleeves came midway between my elbow and wrist. Either the shirt was a woman's and miss-marked, or it was a very small men's shirt.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MangoMango Runs small
Nice shirt, but runs really small, as other people have said. A men's small is usually roomy on me. The small of this shirt was too tight across the shoulders. The medium fits me better, but normally I could never wear a medium.

Rated 4 out of 5 Great shirt - but it runs small
I got a call from customer service just after the shirt was ordered, telling me that the shirt was running small. I decided to risk the order, and they were right! The good news is that it *just* fits me. I'm a little big in the shoulders for most mediums, a good fit for athletic-cut larges, and some larges today can hang on me like a tent. This shirt in large is 'fitted' on my frame. It will only be a summer shirt, and will not fit over anything but a t-shirt (a fitted T at that). Most people will need to order at least one size up.
Sizing aside, I love the shirt. I'm hoping that there are problems selling the strangely sized shirts so I can pick up a few more - cheap!

This is the first LL Bean shirt that fits my husband. It has a very sporty athletic cut. The material is great and the flame color is fabulous.
