Rated 5 out of 5 by WON400 Made the Vacation Week
We have just returned from an all inclusive resort in St. Lucia. We spent a week there, and I bet I lived in my orange Bean's Watersports shirt, quarter zip every time I went in the water. I didn't have to use sun screen at all, and the only place I got a little red was on the nose. It was great for the beach and for the water calisthenics and the water volleyball.
Another LL Bean product I lived in about 90% of the time was the Supplex Cargo Sport Shorts with the 10" inseam. I interchanged four pairs, and put them on when I woke up, wore them to breakfast, tai chi, yoga, body stretches, golf, tennis, archery, all the water sports, lunch, the swimming pool, the massages, and even to the informal dinner if I wanted to.
Between the two water sport shirts, both the grey short sleeve, and the long orange one, plus the four pairs of sport shorts, I really carried a light travel bag to St. Lucia.

Rated 5 out of 5 by hsbros Confortable And A Great Fit
I needed a good SPF shirt for UV protection to use in the pool three days a week. I ordered the same size as the L.L. Bean polo shirts that I wear and was initially concerned. It fitted great, has great stretchability,and no problems. A good featuure is the zipper in front which makes it easier to put on and take off. It gives me room to do my aerobics without restriction. With the restrictive label on drying, I just hang it up and allow it to dry overnight. I do not want to spoil any spf protection. It is dry the next day. For the price, it is a bargain.

This is an excellent product that can be used for a wide variety of sporting events. I particularly like the long sleeve shirt for biking in cool weather or for sitting around the pool or beach. It also works well as a under layer using light windbreakers. I like the product for casual wear as well, and I can see a second shirt in the future.

Rated 1 out of 5 by coyotecanyon Oversize "baggy" construction
I am a stocky medium and this swim shirt, ordered as Medium, was baggy in arms and torso. I expected a "rash guard" type snug/tight fit for a swim shirt, not a loose-fitting garment that will snag on every piece of rock or coral. I returned rather than exchanged it because the fit was so baggy I didn't trust a small being much better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LlbeanFAN270 Nice shirt runs big
This shirt is well crafted and feels great in the water. It doesn't weigh you down and it dries quickly. The fit is bigger than advertised, so you may need to go down a size. I really appreciate it's ability to protect me from the sun! Highly recommended.

Fits and feels great. Using for cycling and hiking. Like the sun protection. Sleeves roll up good to expose arms. Lightweight, comfortable and stylish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LZgrandma Great product!
My family is very fair, We are all going to Mexico for a wedding, so I bought these shirts for my husband and 6 grown sons. They have not worn them yet, but the quality seems to be very good. They are lightweight, so should be great to wear in the pool, and look like they will dry quickly. The sizing is generous. I bought them mainly for the sun protection, UPF 50+. I think they will be worn a lot, not just in the pool.

I sunburn easily and was looking for something to protect my skin so I wouldn't have to use sunscreen when I go in the water. This shirt is just perfect ... slightly fitted so it doesn't balloon out when in the water but by no means tight. Works really well!
