    I love the Open-air Caster, mostly for its comfort, looks and feel. It keeps me comfortable whether I'm standing in waders in a cold trout stream or in cut-off shorts in the warm salt waters of a tropical flat. This shirt always keeps its cool, even when I'm having a hard time keeping mine. Now, I've got a new one in the light gray color -- lucky me, it's another great catch!

    Cast away! - 10/1/2015

    Good looking and comfortable shirt that I can wear when there is a chill in the air but still be comfortable when it warms up. Love the security pocket.

    Right out of the package I knew this could become my favorite shirt. I love the texture and wonderfully soft hand while still projecting an aura of ruggedness. Highly recomended

    Excellent quality - 9/10/2015

    This is a nice shirt. Fit runs true to other Orvis shirts I have purchased. It has a sort of seersucker or "puckered" fabric which breathes well. Very comfortable today, it was 85% humidity and 87 degrees. The hidden button down collar works fine; first shirt I've worn with this feature. I like this shirt!

    A great shirt but... - 9/10/2015
    By: from Tampa

    Like all Orvis products this is a very nice, well made shirt. However, it is a slim cut which is not disclosed in the description. I had previously ordered the Helios Casting Shirt which is more generously cut and was hoping this shirt was similar. Unfortunately it is just to tight for comfort if you are of a "robust" build.

    This is perfect for all kinds of whether you can double layer or not. You can wash it dries in no time at all and you're ready to go again. It's comfortable it moves with you and it breaths.

    Stopped in Orvis just to look around. Ended up getting four long sleeved open air casters. Color choices were outstanding and the shirts felt like they were floating on you. Ended up ordering several on line as more colors were available there.Everybody wants one.
