Rated 4 out of 5 by DebinMD Need Petite Sizes!
I own this shirt in the lovely green shade. I love this shirt-it is a great shirt, and it looks great on, with it's flattering tucks at the shoulder. I love that is is moisture wicking and is perfecty for active wear. BUT, since I am 5 foot 3 inches with a short torso, this shirt comes down halfway to my knees!
Please LLBean, Please, Please, Please, start offering Petite sizes in your women's active wear. We short women like to be active and fit too, and we need clothes to wear while we are doing it. Please don't forget us!

Rated 4 out of 5 by kittygirl yes I love it, yes it pills
I like it so much better than a plain t-shirt! The white color is too sheer but the light blue is fine. I have only had mine 3 months and it has pilled but so far it doesn't look bad to me. However, kind of expensive to have any wear at this point. The style is great. The slight gather (ruching) at the shoulders dresses it up. My 3 shirts are not badly sewn. Kind of large around the hips but it is OK. I am buying one in another color today. The fabric has a nice feel, a good weight, a nice drape and it doesn't wrinkle. But please LL Bean, bring in a better quality fabric that doesn't pill.

Rated 5 out of 5 by missthecoasts Better than a Tee
Great looking and great fitting active tee but is nicely styled and nice enough to wear for casual wear for any occasion. I like the heathered color, the slightly gathered detail at the sleeves and the neckline that is not too low for athletic use but not too high to look good for everyday use.
I'll buy more.

Rated 1 out of 5 by LoneWriter Impractical styling
When I am hiking or doing any vigorous activity, I don't want to feel constricted. I like this shirt's length, as shorter tops migrate up my back when climbing over trail obstacles or digging in the garden--and I don't want a wedge of my lower back announcing itself to biting insects. However, the rest of this shirt's style seems to follow form over function. In particular, the shoulder ruching looks badly sewn (wrinkled) instead of stylish, and the extra cloth feels uncomfortable under pack straps. The side seams add bulk and unwanted weight, so that every time I twist or bend, I feel fabric hugging my torso. Because the style is designed to skim the body, I don't get the same quick-dry benefits as I would with a less form-fitting top. This shirt seems best suited for looking good on the trail, but it falls short on performance for the kind of activities I prefer.
I understand that some customers want to highlight a trim waist, but it would be nice if Bean also offered this shirt in a more traditional fit. In fact, I would die happy if Bean brought back the CoolMax fitness tops from a decade ago. Those weightless shirts were insanely cool and comfortable and dried almost instantly. I'd buy a dozen if they made a reappearance. I have no plans to repurchase the current Women's Trail Tee.

When I took it out of the package, I noticed a small round snag in the front. I wish I would have read the reviews that talked about this problem before I ordered it. I liked the fit and the style, although I wish LL Bean tops weren't as long as they are being made right now. I didn't think the material was too thin as others have thought. I'm returning it due to the snagging problem.

I took this shirt to Europe and it was great for hand washing.It would dry overnight nicely. After less than a month, it already has little "nubby balls" all over it. Too bad, otherwise I love it.

I purchased the River Blue in XXS. I love the feminine design and the wrinkle resistant fabric. Works great for all my business travels. Unfortunately it pills slightly after a couple washes and the fabric is thin so you need to wear a light color bra. Llbean needs to stock these shirts in more colors and smaller sizes. Would appreciate a slightly thicker pill resistant fabric. Please keep the overall design without the logos.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Becky1234 Comfortable, flattering
Wore this shirt hiking and rock climbing. Definitely moves with you, fabric is lightweight and comfortable for hot days. I like the higher cut neckline and cap sleeves for a slightly more modest fit than many other active shirts.

I was excited to get this shirt. Too sheer- it went back. Love LL Beans return policy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chloe33 Excellent fit, please re-stock size Small!
This tee is great for exercise and casual wear. It fits me better than other active tops I have purchased from LL Bean. I have the lime green, and have the gray on back order. I would order several more in different colors if they were available. Please re-stock size Small in all colors!
