Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this shirt! The River Guide shirt is so comfortable and cool. So much cooler than a t-shirt or even a tank top. Would love if you made the same shirt in solid colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this shirt I live in Central Florida where it is already 88 degrees today in March. This shirt just arrived and I have worn it twice. Washes well, very light weight and cool to wear and is flattering. I am a size 14 and larger busted and the L was great. I hate shirts that gap across the bust but this lays really nice. I got the lavender color, so pretty. Very happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Design I love the feel of this shirt; really nice fabric to the touch with a little stretch to it. Is it summer yet?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it, a little large I bought two of these shirts in the long sleeve version in medium and they fit great and I love them. I bought the short sleeve in medium and it is a bit big. I am going to return it for a small. Other than that, I love these shirts!
