This really soft shirt is the perfect 2nd layer for cool mornings writing for the hatch to start. It's on the roomy side and has some stretch - perfect for casting a #12 Hendrickson or reaching for an Allagash White.

Most under rated Patagonia fleece...
I bought my early rise snap shirt a couple years ago and it is hands down my favorite fleece/ midlayer y'all have made, and I've owned and really liked quite a few. Functionality is great, dries quickly, warm and pretty wind resistant as far as fleeces go, great pockets. Also get complements whenever I wear it, because it looks good. It l... Read Moreayers great, inner or outer depending on conditions, and I have slept in it many times(very soft, even after lots of washes) 5/5 please make it in more solid colors!(dark green!) I would buy a few. I think because this is in your fly fishing line, It's under marketed, and a lot of people just don't know about it. Here is my unsolicited advice as a lifelong Patagonia fan: Add this to your normal line of fleeces, or something comparable. Make a fly fishing version where the back shoulder panel, and the front chest panels above the pockets have a more softshell/water repellent fabric, but nothing too heavy, it's still a midlayer. that is all, love your gear
This shirt is the perfect outer layer for cool dry days working outside. Great moveability and stretch in the arms and across the back allowing for versatility when working in tight spaces. Front pockets are big enough and easy to access for a notepad or granola bar. Fits well and not bulky to wear under a vest. My favorite everyday fall/spring wor... Read Morek shirt.
Great early fall fishing shirt
Bought this for my boyf - he is 5'9" 175#, broad shoulders, slim-athletic build. Fits great. He's worn it several times already salmon fishing and fly fishing. Easy on/off layering piece. Functional chest pockets for small fly box or odds and ends. Toasty warm and he looks smokin' hot in it.
Id been keeping my eye in this, waiting for the ink black to come back in-stock. When it, I ordered it and excitedly waited for it to arrive, thinking it would be the perfect office overshirt.

Hey Chris, thanks for the feedback. We're sorry to hear it ultimately didn't work out. If you're still looking for something similar, we recommend checking out the [Men's Better Sweater Fleece Chore Coat](https://www.patagonia.com/product/mens-better-sweater-fleece-chore-coat/26110.html?dwvar_26110_color=PIGN&cgid=root).
This product is amazing, my wife got me the teal/blue after we saw it in a fly shop. The first time I wore it out a friend immediately got online and bought the same one. Its the perfect weight, the snaps are awesome, and you cant beat the color! There are snaps that keep the collar down which are a nice feature too!
Light, soft, warm
I dig the fleece shirt. It looks good with jeans and khakis and for how thin it is, it's pretty warm.

Hey Chris, thanks for the review, we appreciate the feedback. We do make some of our items in a slim fit. You can check the fit on any item by going to it's product page, scrolling down and checking underneath the size range options. This shirt happens to have a relaxed fit which could explain the billowing you mentioned.

Soft, lightweight, and warm
Just got my third one of these, so I guess I must like them. Incredibly soft but durable, warm indoors without getting hot, and surprisingly good at blocking the cold down into the 40s. Great fit and finish, roomy pockets, and long enough tail for tucking in or fending off a draft untucked. Couldn't think of a thing I'd add or change.
I feel the shirt is slightly large; however, my wife says it fits perfect. I am definitely keeping after putting it on and feeling the comfort right away.

Comfy, warm (but not too warm), great for shoulder season wear, or a cold home office. Nice pockets, aggressive snaps (this is good)Looks nice enough to wear out and about after the intended use.

I typically wear a large in Patagonia fleece/jackets, but sized down to medium at the advice of other reviews. The fit of a medium fits perfect.

Very comfortable, odd fit
After reading all the previous reviews I went ahead and purchased this shirt and I really do love it, however some of the things others mentioned are very true. 1) Very odd fit.. sleeves and chest are a medium and the rest of the shirt billows into a large. I spent $20 at the tailor and it fits amazing now. 2) If you're not careful with the ba...

Like a warm hug from a yeti
I have worn this shirt under my paddle jacket on rainy river days, as a layer on fall hikes and over my vintage t-shirt at work.

Comfortable fleece flannel
Second one I have owned. Appreciate the warmth of the fleece used. Works well as a layer under my rain jacket, or as a light outer garment on cool mornings, or days.

Go-to Anything Shirt
After one wash, this shirt is ready to go. I have always enjoyed Patagonia clothing primarily due to its durability despite wind, rain, and rock. This shirt will by no means be any different. It is so comfortable that you nearly forget that you're even wearing a fleece shirt. It seems to breathe well as I haven't gotten too warm indoors w... Read Morehile wearing it. The zippered pocket is really nice to stow away a passport or airline ticket without having to mess with a backpack strap and the button flap. Great idea there. The plastic snap closures for the front and pockets are just as bomber as stuff that I have purchased 20 years ago. Another great product from a great company. I am about 5'9" & 210lbs and a medium fits me with a t-shirt underneath, but anything heavier would require a large. Fits a bit bigger for a Patagonia.
I bought this shirt for the chest POCKETS. I wish Patagonia would make bigger chest pockets on all their mens shirts pullovers, jackets you name it. the chest pockets need to be at least 7 inches deep to hold smart phones and other gear. just look at military shirts from militarys all over the world. they have big chest pockets to make them more fu...

Lightweight warmth with button down style
My wife bought me this shirt because I forgot to pack my El Cap fleece quarter zip, while on a bicycle tour on the central California Coast. So glad she did! It kept me warm in the foggy evenings, with enough room underneath for a long sleeved sun-stretch shirt (XS), and a nano-puff vest (S). I wore it for a week, every evening and through the nigh...

Best Layer Ever!
Absolutely my favorite layer for cool weather. Fits great, looks great and is super comfortable. This is simply a must have and is great for many activities. Only feedback is I wish the elbows were double-layered. Other than that, this is an amazing, durable and comfortable shirt!
Fleece snap up nice for layering

Hey there, thanks for the review on our Long-Sleeved Early Rise Snap Fishing Shirt! This shirt has a relaxed fit, it could be the shirts and jackets you're comparing it to have a slim or regular fit which is why you're seeing that difference in width. If you'd prefer a slim or regular fit, check out these [shirt options](https://www.patagonia.com/shop/mens-shirts?prefn1=fit&prefv1=slim%7Cregular).
Perfect shirt ruined by faulty snaps
Had the last two versions of the snap shirts. The old synchilla snap shirt with metal snaps is still going strong ( best Patagonia product ever). I loved everything about this one but I should have heeded the warnings about the snaps. Only had it three months and wore it maybe 6 times. Tried to baby the snaps since I heard they could pull out but i... Read Moret didnt matter. They are one by one just pulling out if their holes. I dont even think they are sewn in to start with. Terrible design that ruins an otherwise perfect shirt! Back to the old snap shirt I guess. Why can they just remake the old version from 15 years ago? It was way superior to the last two fleece shirts they came out with. I bought them all.
would be perfect but.....don't bother
I was excited see to Patagonia bring back what I thought was a remake of my very favorite Patagonia product of all time. The synchilla micro fleece snap shirt. I still have the forest green one I purchased almost 17 years ago and it's an all time favorite. (BRING IT BACK PLEASE) I tried the last version they came out with several years ago and... Read More it just wasn't the same quality of fleece nor did it fit right (very boxy and had buttons not snaps). Still have it but it stays in the closet and I wear the vintage one. I'm an avid fly fisherman and when I saw this shirt I jumped on it. I love everything about the shirt, the fit is spot on, the fleece is similar to the old synchilla (maybe identical) and the reinforced collar, pocket flaps and cuffs are awesome. I actually liked this better than my old one however there is one major flaw which ruins this shirt. The snaps are terrible and they pull right out of the holes in the fleece. I read this on other reviews but decided to take a chance and sadly its true. Since I had read this I was extra careful to never pull the shirt open by the material but by carefully grabbing the snaps with two hands. No dice. One by one they are still pulling out. You can pop them in again but they will pull out every time after that. If they would only just USE METAL SNAPS it would have been a perfect shirt. I don't even think the snaps are sewn in but they just seem to pop in when you stretch the hole a bit. Poor design. I have had the shirt probably three months and worn it a half dozen times and it has not been abused. I can't understand why Patagonia ruined a perfectly good product.
Great Over Shirt. Wear it for Anything.
Had my eye on this shirt for a while. It has a great look that works for both casual and semi-dressed up settings. I am fairly thin (5' 11", 140lb) so I purchased both a S and XS. The XS fit almost perfect, while the S was a bit too baggy for me. There's likely enough room to wear a light long sleeve layer in the XS for me. It'... Read Mores amazing how warm the shirt is for how light it wears. It regulates temperature very well. I can wear it indoors and not feel overly hot, and step outside into 50ish degree weather and still feel comfortable. I love it so much I'll likely get a second one in another color. Can't go wrong!
Like the nylon reinforced cuffs
I bought this piece for fly fishing. Nice pocket size and just the right weight worn over a T shirt for a cool evening on the river in late May or June. It also works well as a light mid layer under a rain jacket. My only complaint; I would prefer the shirt be a bit longer in the torso area. Not a deal breaker though. Good quality Patagonia product... Read More.
Really Happy with this shirt. I am physically active and for the most part wear my clothing snug. This shirt is (for me) just a bit loose in the mid/side. I am 510 155lbs. It did not stop me from purchasing all three colors. I am able to wear these shirts 8 months out of the year comfortably. Very soft and very quick to dry. Solid quality ~
Oh snap, the snaps suck!

Hi Michael, thank you for taking the time to write us a review! We're really sorry to hear about the quality issue that you've experienced with the snaps. We assure you that this isn't our typical quality so you're welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) it to us under warranty. We truly appreciate you taking the time to share this with us and we've passed your experience along to our design crew!
awesome shirt but go easy on the buttons
If you take off your shirts like a reasonable person, this piece is awesome. I'm 5'11 160lbs and usually fall between medium and large in PTG shirts and jackets. As far as PTG shirts go, this one has the length of a long, but the sleeve length and girth of medium. Room for a light layer underneath, but still easy to put a shell or another... Read More layer of insulation over it. I've worn it with just a t-shirt underneath, but it'll get clammy if the weather is warm enough to justify that combo. The orientation of the zip pocket is perfect for a phone, but depending on what size boxes you're using in the vertical pockets, they may interfere with wader straps. By no means a deal breaker for me. It's a little bit bulky in a pack or suitcase, but only because so many other kinds of insulation pack up so small these days. Onto the other thing.... If you enjoy snap shirts because you can pull them off quickly with one hand a la Frank Drebin in Naked Gun, go easy of them. The stitching that holds the snaps into the fleece itself lends itself to pulling out easily. At first, you can kind of wedge it back in, but it'll fall out in the wash and eventually you'll have to make do without full buttoning capabilities. If anybody from Patagonia sees this, is there an easy repair option? I couldn't find one on the wornwear page that addresses this type to plastic snap button. Awesome shirt, and due to quarantine, it's seeing a lot of time around the firepit and the busted buttons aren't detracting from my enjoyment!
Hi Dan! We're sorry to hear the snaps have fallen off. At this time our retail stores and repairs centers are closed as a precautionary measure for COVID-19. However, feel free to send your shirt in to us for a repair when we reopen! You can check our website for updates on our closures.
Favorite Patagonia Item
This shirt is a re-boot of my favorite Patagonia item of all time, the Micro D Snap Shirt. The one I purchased in 2006 is still going strong, but bought this as a backup and I now wear them both with high frequency. Love it! (FWIW, for my height/weight the sizing widget recommended an XL, but the L is perfect for me)
