Rated 5 out of 5 by from TERRIFIC SUMMER WORK SHIRT This River Guide Shirt is just terrific. I'm so tired of summer work shirts being billed as "wicking & cool" when they are 100% polyester and are ALWAYS sticky & hot. Then I've tried hemp or linen, and although they breathe better, they're always crumpled & look like I just rolled out of bed. This River Guide shirt's mostly cotton fabric is the key to it's comfort I think. Somehow, they've kept it super lightweight & breathable, blended in just a hint of stretch, it's tightly woven enough that it's a great sun blocker too. The comfort against the skin & breathability factor far surpass all of my other "summer outdoors work shirts". Sweat dries in a flash. The shirts wash & dry in an instant, and the bonus is that they fit great & look nice! THANK YOU ORVIS for making a shirt that is lightweight, sunblocking, & truly breathable, for we women who work outdoors all summer in the heat & humidity. I'm back now, buying my 3rd one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Versatile Great for sun protection when cruising and looks great under a vest or sweatshirt. Desert rose was what appealed to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effective for heat & sun Very comfortable in heat & sun while hiking. I've had the short sleeve for 2 years and find the long sleeve still comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A cool shirt for a hot day! A cool shirt for a hot day! On an outing to the foothills of the Santa Barbara mountains, I wasn’t sure what to wear, but a new shirt purchased from Orvis seemed like the right choice. It turned out to be the perfect choice because we were in the sun much of the time and I remained comfortable throughout the day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shirt! Finally, a comfortable shirt that doesn't fit like a tent! It's not tight but is shaped both in front and back with princess seams - really hard to find in a women's shirt these days! And it has enough stretch to make it even more comfortable! I ride horses and volunteer at a horse stable. I need shirts that cover my skin because I don't like sunscreen. These shirts have the sunscreen built right in! And they are quick drying if I sweat on hot, dusty summer days. Like the gingham checks; would like to see soft colored solids, too (dusty blue, lavender). Got one in Ocean Blue and another, Sea Glass, which was on sale! You won't be disappointed in these shirts!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My wife loves it! My wife pointed out this shirt in her catalog. Not saying was ordering it but she liked it. So being the good husband I am I ordered it for her as a surprise. When it arrived she loved it immediately, she wears it to work, and at home. I earned a few brownie points for the next time I need some fishing gear. Thanks for a great shirt.
