We recently discovered that certain styles of the Capilene® Cool Daily and the Tropic Comfort product lines do not meet the 50+ UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) rating we claimed for them. They still offer solid UV protection—it’s just not as much as advertised. If you own one of these shirts, click below for more information.Learn More

I have a had a couple of these shirts for a few years and wanted another so I always have a clean one handy. I mostly put them on for a hike, where I never seem to have enough pockets. The two oversized breast pockets are perfect as is the protection from insects and sun. it's cut a little large, but that's what I want for hiking. The one...

The perfect shirt!
This is the most perfect shirt I have ever worn. Great for any outdoor activity. I love to wear mine while river running, fishing.whatever. I cant say enough about this article of clothing. Please dont ever discontinue it! For me it is as essential as Stand- ups, Capilene or or Synchilla pull-overs.
I love my shirt! I'm curious to know what the UV Protection Factor is on the material?
Hey Daniel! We're so stoked to hear you love your shirt. The Long-Sleeved Sun Stretch shirt is rater at UPF 30. Feel free to [reach out](https://help.patagonia.com/s/) to us with any additional questions.
Lightweight, breathable, and protective
This shirt fits perfectly! Maybe a tad on the "long" side for a typical Medium, but that's what I prefer as I am 6'2" and 170lbs. It's lightweight, breathable and offers great sun protection. I live in the Southeastern US where it gets really hot and muggy in the summertime. This shirt was a great sun protection layer ... Read Moreout on the boat even in the middle of summer.
New favorite shirt
This is my new favorite shirt! I'll wear it on Friday with a pair of jeans for casual dress code...and then leave it on the rest of the weekend for going to the beach, out on the boat, or even dinner with the wife. Very light, stretchy, and breathable fabric. Once I got my first one, I immediately ordered a second in another pattern.
A shirt that you must own
This is just an all-around amazing shirt. I use it in many different environments and activities. Everything from in-river activities to search and rescue. It does run slightly large in comparison to other styles from Patagonia. However, this is a feature that can be an added bonus. I normally wear a size XL in most other Patagonia shirts, but I di...

From skiff to the restaurant
This is a great shirt. It very roomy. At 6 and 200lbs. Size large is perfect. . As a fly fishing guide on a skiff, I personally buy a shirt one size bigger / oversized. Does a great job keeping the sun off you while chasing bonefish , permit and tarpon. Certainly stylish enough for a night out.
Great shirt for the sun
Got one as a gift last summer and liked it so much I bought another. I use them primarily for fishing but wear them for town trips and hiking days too. Love the pockets, they really seal the deal. I'd rather have a collar that comes up higher to keep the sun off my neck but I get the snap down one for riding in fast boats.
Good fit for 165# weight, normal build. Other brands are huge in a "medium", but this shirt fits well, worn untucked over an undershirt. Fabric has a bit of stretch, nice and light, but works well if it's a bit windy. I like the dual chest zip pockets, with my phone slipped into one.
Great Shirt but the updates werent needed
These shirts have been my absolute go-to shirts for many years now. I preferred these because they dont have floppy vents and I can stand the collar up for better sun protection. The vertical pockets work well for me. However, I dont know that I will purchase this newer style due to the button down collars...the best part of these shirts was the la...

Simply put: Perfect
I bought an earlier version of this shirt for my husband and ended up buying a second one in the same color because when going to the closet he always reached for it and was disappointed when it was in the laundry.

Long Sleeve Sun Stretch Shirt
This shirt is fantastic! It fits true to size and the material flexes when needed. It offers UV protection, breathes well, includes a tag for your forceps and the zipper pockets have plenty of storage room for your fly boxes.

Superior shirt, well done Patagonia!
This shirt feels right, ready and durable for an outdoor adventure, however, it is also aptly suited for any casual or business casual function. As expected, the fit is slightly generous for a hot weather shirt and just enough stretch. Although I haven't gotten it soaked yet, but, I expect it to perform perfectly.
Fabric is perfect. Design not so much.
This shirt did not need the addition of collar snaps. What it does need are loops or tabs to hang sunglasses, hemostats, or hold a rod. Also, if you leave the chest zippers open for venting, the pockets become useless. Actually I find horizontal pockets pretty useless to begin with. The fabric is spot on light, soft and comfortable but needs a desi... Read Moregn worthy of it.
