The Story

On or off the water, you won't find a cooler or more comfortable lightweight shirt than our gingham River Guide style—especially in the heat. Cotton in the blend keeps you comfortable; polyester wicks away moisture; and spandex allows the shirt to move with you easily. And whether you're fishing or traveling, two button-through chest pockets and one secured vertical-entry zip pocket behind the left chest pocket can handle the things you need close at hand. The pencil hole on the left chest pocket is perfect for parking your sunglasses, while the sunglasses cleaner hidden in the hem helps keep them clear. And you'll appreciate the hidden button-down collar that prevents annoying flyaways. Adjustable cuffs, shaped hem.

Cotton/nylon/spandex. Washable. Imported.

Sizes S(34-36), M(38-40), L(42-44), XL(46-48), XXL(50-52).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shirt River guide shirt is fantastic! I went fly fishing with my brother in the mountains of Virginia.Over packed as normal but also packed 2 river guide shirts. Glad I did. The air temp in the 80’s. Walking, bushwhacking, boulder hopping and flyfishing in the streams with this shirt made the experience even better. The shirt was highly breathable and dried quickly when sweating. The zippered pocket was great for storing airlock bobbers, dry fly desiccant and fly tie assistance tool. The button down pockets allowed to store buff headwear, 4x magnifier glasses and Afterbite pen. Needless to say these are now my favorite shirts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Consistent This is my second purchase of this style shirt in the last year. The sizing and fit is consistent between those purchases, which I certainly can’t say for other brands purchased in the past. From casual wear to hiking, from the river to the beach, these shirts are very versatile and comfortable. While not suited for business casual on its own because of the pocket zipper, I’ll wear these under a pullover or sweater to the office as well. At 5’10” and 160 lbs, I wear size Small and it fits very comfortably, even still loose. It seems Orvis sizing may be a bit more generous relative to other brands, or maybe it’s just that many other brands have bought into the tight/slim fitting craze in recent years. In my experience with Orvis clothing so far, I appreciate the more relaxed fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight and Breathable This shirt is lightweight and breathable and feels good against your skin. The fit is relaxed, but not like a tent. I love the large practical chest pockets. It looks good in the cactus gingham color that I purchased. This is a fine shirt for when the weather warms up, but you still want long-sleeve protection from the sun.
