Too much shirt and money -
By: RealAxman from South central Tx.
The only reason that I tried this shirt was that it was highly rated and deeply discounted on sale for $20. The shirt material is good but it is overpriced even at $20. It is also larger than normal. I usually wear an XL and very occasionally some are too small and some are too large. This one is too large. A large (which I almost never order) would probably fit.
Great Tees -
Shirts are very well constructed, the sizes are very true and the colors are great.
very thin material -
shirt material was thinner than i expected- sorta see-through.

I wasn't sure I woulk like the material this T is made of. It has turned out great & I bought another one. If there were more colors I would buy a couple more. It is a typical top of the line Orvis product !
GREAT SHIRT -
By: eeek from Simi Valley, Ca
First off the fabric is great, I'm in So Cal and it is really hot these days, this shirt keeps me cool, I don't know how the Tencal does it but it keeps me really comfortable all day. Also, I purchased similar shirts from a different company for less money at the same time I bought this shirt and they are falling apart. Worth the money because of fit, comfort and durability!!
Great for hot weather -
I have tried many types of supposedly breathable wicking t-shirts, and most don't do me any good in the heat vs. plain cotton. These Tencel shirts are the first that work for me. They are very cool and sweat seems to disappear from them. Their only drawback is their crazy high price. Still, I'm willing to pay that price for something that performs this well. Plus they look good!
|Tencel: natural fabric meets high-tech performance|
Eco-friendly and biodegradable
No fabric available today could better display the ideals of Orvis than Tencel®. Tencel is made of all-natural wood pulp fibers from trees grown on highly regulated farms that focus on sustainability. Not only is the material eco-friendly, but the process by which the fibers are made into fabric is, too. And when the clothing reaches the end of its useful life, it is especially kind to the environment. In fact, it is 100% biodegradable.
Moisture and temperature controlled for warm weather
The main benefit of clothing made from this unique fabric is the moisture and temperature control it offers to the wearer. Because wood pulp is naturally designed to absorb moisture for the tree’s survival, the fibers that are made into cloth do the same. The fabric pulls moisture directly from the skin and releases it into the air. Synthetic materials such as polyester do not take in moisture at all, but leave a film on the skin’s surface. And while cotton absorbs moisture, Tencel is 1 ½ times as absorbent. While cotton and polyester can both leave moisture on the skin in humid weather, Tencel does not, ensuring that bacteria will never get a chance to form between the fabric and the skin. This makes Tencel a truly safe fabric for all skin types – even babies!
Durable and soft for maximum comfort
But how can a biodegradable and moisture-locking fabric not supplemented with synthetic fibers possibly withstand the trials of daily wear and tear? The secret lies in nanofibrils – microscopic hairs that branch off from the outermost fibers. In the fabricating process, the nanofibrils are manipulated to give an all-natural fabric unnatural strength. Tencel even shows such strength while wet.
What’s more, Tencel is an especially smooth fiber, and has softness comparable to cotton and silk. The nanofibrils can also be altered to create fabrics that feel like suede, silk, denim, or as though they had been treated for a peach-skin finish.
Furthermore, these versatile Tencel fibers blend well with other fibers such as wool and cotton to create textiles more durable, soft, and moisture controlling than man-made fibers. Tencel clothing provides maximum comfort – whether you’re on the go, at work, or enjoying the outdoors.
A "feel-good" stylish fabric that's good for the environment
The Orvis customer can feel good about wearing and buying Tencel products – not only because they are naturally moisture wicking and very soft, but also because of the integrity in the source and the eco-friendly manufacturing process.
