Women's Tropicwear Shirt, Plaid Long-Sleeve is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Softens right up after washing This shirt is tapered through the waist, but still comfortable as long as I don't put on any more Covid quarantine weight! It is very comfortable, and even when hiking in the 100 degree Arizona desert, it kept me cool and did not stick to my skin like most other long sleeved garments I own. I need the sun protection here, and was pleased when out hiking that I wasn't tempted to take it off! Someone else complained in a review that the material was too stiff and plastic-y. I did not find that to be the case; it was a little stiff when I first got it, but softened right up after 2 washings. It has the added benefit of looking great on!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good workmanship and fabric As usual with LL Bean products they did not skimp on ease where needed for a comfortable fit. cheaper clothes tend to be tight in areas (armhole, across the back, under arm, etc). The shirt itself has an abundance of pockets that are secured to prevent small items falling out. Fabric is lightweight has stretch which contributes to the comfort. It is lightweight(which will dry quickly) without being see through. The stitching was carefully trimmed, no loose threads, buttons are securely fastened no loose threads the can unravel. All in all their products are typical of well sewn, garments.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost a 5 I would rate this shirt a 5 if I wanted it mostly for hot humid hiking instead of casual summer wear. The only thing I didn't like was the way the back yoke vents out so far it looks odd (sort of like a cape flying behind you or like you're a hunchback). I had to spend time tacking it down in five places near the bottom edge of the yoke to make it look like a normal shirt (retaining some but less ventilation capability). Perhaps on future versions of this shirt, adding some small velcro tabs in that area would give customers ventilating options without the strange appearance. I appreciated the slightly fitted shaping of the rest of the shirt (not too tight or too wide).

Rated 3 out of 5 by from tropicwear shirt Well-made, nice fabric and color, but it is not true to size in my opinion. It's ok if left unbuttoned, but fits too snug when buttoned, so suggest ordering a size larger than your normal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the look, love the feel. Have worn only a couple of times due to unseasonably cool weather in WI. I especially like shirts like this that have sleeves to roll up when weather gets warmer. The more subtle plaid colors are great for going into spring and summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall great I buy these shirts a size large as wear them over a t-shirt. The SPF is great for sun protection. This fits well, wears easily, washes and dries perfectly. Would love it if they carried more colors in these prints.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from TOO WIDE Great print and material for the shirt, but it was wide enough for two of me to fit into. Why LL Bean????? I"m a medium in tops normally and this fit like and XL with the width. Bummed but found a great fitting one somewhere else instead.
