We just got the shirt in the mail. I ordered it for my husband who usually wears a large in shirts and it was too big for him, so I am going to reorder a medium for him. I had ordered the XL for myself in the women's which is on back order, but his Large fits me fine. So I am going to keep the men's large for myself and cancel the order for the women's. It seems to be a good quality shirt. We bought it to use snorkeling for our cruise which we are going to take in November.

I bought this for my husband a few weeks ago, and it fits nicely and works well for sun protection. He has mentioned that it is difficult to get off and on while wet, but most clothing is that way.
For the price, however, I would have expected a more substantial fabric. We bought a swim shirt for our grandson from Bean that has heavier fabric and a neckline that extends up like a mock turtleneck - much better sun protection. And, probably due to the fact that the fabric is heavier, our grandson's shirt is easier to remove while wet.
I bought the women's version of this shirt for myself a few months ago. I also noted the thin fabric and the low neckline, but I liked the shirt anyway. I suppose this is the best Bean has to offer for adults, and both us would prefer these shirts over using sunscreen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Catdaddy64z Great for sun protection!
I wore this shirt four days in Belize while snorkeling. It provided great protection from the sun. No need to wear additional sunscreen. It fits well and is very comfortable. I would highly recommend this shirt!

Great active shirt for water sports. This is my first water shirt and I plan to get more.
Doesn't restrict movement in water.

I bought 4 of these shirts for Texas summer fishing to prevent sun
burn. I wore one last Saturday and cooked in it. It is not for summer wear. Unfortunately I needed the shirts for my son and my use and had to buy another brand here locally in Houston. I plan to return the shirts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Riverat Comfortable!; total sun-protection; quick drying.
Wore sport shirt for two days of relatively calm water, alpine kayaking at 6,500 feet in Idaho high country. Complete sun protection in thinner, cloud-free atmosphere. Quick and complete drying from continuous water splashes and paddle runoff. Surprisingly comfortable fit allowing complete freedom of movement paddling each day. Quality product!

Just spent 4 days in this at Bonnaroo. This pretty much means being constantly exposed to the sun w/o much cover on a 700 acre farm. It did its job w/ no issues whatsoever.

Excellent product; dries quickly and keeps you warm. I wore this on a rainy canoe weekend both under a fleece, and by itself when the sun did come out, and it kept me comfortable under all of the conditions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kayakjoe Great shirt !!!
I'm 5'-9" 185. I got a Large and fits perfect. Sleeves run long, which is great. Wore it for 2 days straight and it survived all activities at the beach and cookouts without any fabric pulls or snags.
Have had issues in the past with polyester sport shirts that snag and pull real easy and look horrible after just a couple of uses. This one survived the test.
The white is bright, you will stand out for sure. It does wash easy, as expected, white will attract dirt. I did a quick cold water hand wash with detergent and hung it for a quick dry, and I was back in business the next day.
My only disappointment is that the white/fish print sold out so fast this early in the season...
