Quintessential flannel shirt
A really great flannel shirt - the material is soft and comforting, the weight is reminiscent of the old school flannel shirts that my dad wore, and the cut is perfect for my 5'-11" / 165 frame (I ordered a medium). This shirt is also exceedingly well crafted. Another example of Patagonia knocking it out of the park with design, sourcin... Read Moreg, and execution.
Perfect for tweener weather now and colder weather later
Bought this for my husband after he nearly wore out his nano for cooler evenings on the lake. This is the prefect weight for a little additional cozy warmth in summer and will be great for fall and winter as base layer. Fits well, flannel is substantial, soft.
a shirt to last a lifetime.
runs a little loose but has a great feel! if you want it a bit more fitted just size down, that's what I do. Ive owned a more colorful version for almost 6 years or so and its been amazing.

Great Oversized Fit for me

I cant get enough
This is my third Fjord flannel. Luxuriously soft. Warm. Comfortable. Just right weight. My only issue is this: right out of the package, it is a bit big, mostly in the length. So, I wash them and dry them about 4-6 times, and they do shrink a fair amount. Maybe a couple inches in the length. I then stop drying them in the dryer and hang-dry them to...

The cornerstone of my fall/winter wardrobe
It's about time I wrote a review about these flannels. I have over 10. They are extremely well-made, and every year there are at least a few designs that I really like.

I picked up a second Fjord Flannel Shirt after owning my first one for a few years. I'm 6', 165 lbs., athletic and got the medium. It's a relaxed fit.

New favorite shirt!
I got this shirt last week and have worn it just about every other day. It has enough weight for the Pa winter nights and perfect for sitting in hot buildings comfortably. Definitely gonna buy more of these shirts! 5’10 and 175/180 lbs Athletic build and a medium fits perfectly.
I am finally leaving a review on these since I now own 3. They are super comfortable and I think they have a few unique color patterns that I get complimented on. For fit I wanted to describe my experience. I originally bought a medium and it fit pretty perfect but after I washed it (cold water delicate cycle. No heat dryer for 5 min and hang to d... Read Morery) it shrunk pretty good at the sleeves. I swapped for a large and it has been fine after washing. I am 6'4 and 185 lbs so fairly slender. The large fits well with sleeves but it is pretty long on the torso. I still really like them and like I said earlier I own 3 but they definitely look a little silly popping out from the bottom of my jacket. That is the explanation for kinda large. The quality seems top notch. The original 2 I got for myself Dec 2018 still look like brand new even though they get worn regularly. They are fairly warm. I went ATV riding in October in Northern Pennsylvania and a sweatshirt plus this underneath was more than enough for a mid 50 degree ride. Price is a little high but if they continue to hold up like they have it seems like it will have been worth the price.
Fjorn. Awesome but too long
What an amazing shirt. Soft. Not to warm but also not too thin. I wear an XL (possibly too many donuts) and I’m a shorter guy. So the XL was just way too long.

The M is the right fit, but I also have a couple that are size L and they're nice to have for a bit baggier and relaxed fit. The Fjord Flannels might be my favorite product from Patagonia. I highly recommend them. Keep up the good work buds.
I'm 38 and consider myself quite picky when it comes to my flannel. This is by far the nicest feeling and highest quality flannel I have owned to date. I told my wife that she be seeing me in it a lot. Runs a bit large, I am 5'8" 160lbs and normally wear a medium in everything but the small is just right in this one.
Soft and warm
I am a 5-6”, 120 lb woman and I love my soft and warm men’s Fjord shirt. I ordered men’s size XS and it fits nicely for how I wear it - open over a t-shirt. I love the straight cut on the bottom. It’s a nice alternative to the women’s Fjord, which is more fitted and has a “scoop” bottom.

I buy way too many of these shirts. However for Chicago in the winter time I can’t get enough of them. It’s my go to shirt when needing to wear something casual, but warm.

I’m continuously between large and medium in Patagonia shirts this one no different. Large is super boxy medium I won’t be able to move my arms after one wash. I’m 5’11” 190 so I would think a pretty typical size.

This is one of my favorite shirts I own. It's soft. Like old-well-loved-blanket soft. And the construction is top notch. Great to wear on its own, or over a t-shirt. Fit is as to be expected. I wear a medium in all this Patagonia and this is no different. Great shirt. Will probably last a lifetime.
A useful and attractive warm shirt. BUT, as is the case with many Patagonia products, the sizing is inconsistent. The online comments indicated that this shirt runs large. So, instead of ordering a Medium, I ordered this shirt in Small, and it’s a bit tight across my belly.

Size is relative, but not baggy.
Reading the reviews its hard to tell if this is too baggy or slim. Pat's fit chart put it on the extreme end and call it "relaxed". A 15 year old or a hipster walking in Brooklyn might agree. But for older persons, or for those who want to be able to lift their arms with out the buttons popping, this seems on the slim side (especiall... Read Morey since they call it relaxed fit). A "slim fit" , even a "regular fit" version would be nonfunctional. I'm fairly trim and the medium was hugging my chest and abdomen. (6 ft, 160). The large seemed perfect for me and my activity; maybe 1 inch long in sleeves (felt like a medium-large; not as large as some brands). So all of this is relative to what you like, or what Pat calls the "fit". But it is not baggy like some say. Some variation is expected- sadly manufactured in China. So, if your a hipster in Oakland wearing pants you can barely sit in, this may not be the shirt for you. For the rest of us, "rock" on.
Best feel, best comfort... really hard to beat these. My collection is up to 7 different colors/styles of these shirts, with a few duplicate purchases to store in the archive and bust out years down the road. "Regular fit" runs a bit large, so one might want to size down depending on preferences.
Nice thick soft flannel
I love this shirt. I got it as a gift and will probably buy another one. I'm 5'7", 155 lbs, and the small fits well. Just right in the shoulders, the sleeves are slightly long. The hem is too long to look right untucked so I'm going to have it shortened by a couple of inches. If not for that I'd give it 5 stars.

I found the size was pretty true so the arms are on the long side; probably 34" or so. Also the fit is "classic" so it is (too) roomy at the waist.

I wore one of these shirts nearly every night after a day of rafting on a 23 day Grand Canyon trip. I bought a second because I liked it so much!
When I first opened the package and felt the lush softness of this shirt,I said,"Wow!" My wife,unprompted,said the same thing. If it comes close to the legendary Patagonia durability,which seems likely,given the material and construction,it will be the best flannel shirt I've ever had.
Amazing product! Great buy
I absolutely love the feeling of the flannel,it's softness is heaven on earth! It is great in cold weather and doesn't get too hot like other furry flannels.

I'm 5'11",185lbs,35" waist,35-36" arm length in dress shirts. This flannel fits perfect. There is so much written about funky sizing,no idea where this is coming from. There is room for a t-shirt under the flannel,which is a good thing. By no means am I "swimming" in this,like some reviewers mention. Just want to ...

I bought this flannel a couple of months ago and have worn it basically everyday. It feels great and has held up on my weekly hikes and daily trips to the coffee shop. This is by far the most comfortable flannel I own to date. I'm 5'6" 175 lbs and the Medium fits me well,arms a tad long but not by much.
Feels nice but fits poorly
Thick and cozy. Bought the Oak Brown. A lot of yellow in that brown makes it quite mustardy. I would've rolled with it but the medium ran way too big. It's bigger than all the larges in my closet. Of course the small is permanently out of stock so I won't be able to compare sizes.
This is an amazingly comfortable and warm shirt. It's warm,but it also doesn't make you hot. I was in Denver and it was 15 degrees outside,I had nothing on but this shirt.

This is my go-to flannel for any outdoor activity during our "harsh" SoCal winters! :) It looks great,fits great,and the quality is superb. I bought one to see how much I like it,and now I plan to buy a couple more. Zero complaints- don't even know how they could make it better.
I love this shirt!
This is the best purchase I've made this winter. I like the roominess...it makes for a very comfortable winter shirt. If I want to be a little warmer,the fit is right for wearing a long sleeved t shirt underneath. The fabric is nice and soft. I really can't say enough about it. I will probably order another very soon.
Great shirt,sleeves short
Bought this for my husband,he's 6' 155lbs,a small fits him well except for the sleeves which are too short. A medium would be huge on him,so he just rolls the sleeves up. Not ideal,but otherwise he loves the shirt. It's a great layer over capilene and under a coat.
He LOVED it!
I bought this flannel in the Windrow Toasted White for my boyfriend for Christmas and it was a huge success! He loves the feel and will tell anyone it is the most comfortable shirt he has EVER worn!

The material used for the Fjord long sleeve flannel shirt is peerless. It's soft and warm. Even after washing it maintains it's comfortable feel.

Barely got this before it sold out. Great fit! Love the soft organic cotton. Washing in cold water and hang drying so as not to risk shrinking. Love the color scheme best of all - dark greens with a hint of teal green in the plaid. Matches my Patagonia hat perfectly. Lots of compliments.
Bought this as fall/winter shirt. Quickly became my go to for anything outdoors. I bought the medium (I'm 5/8',160lbs) knowing the description was "relaxed fit" and I think that is a perfect assessment.

Great Flannel Shirt!
I owned one from last season and decided to get one this season (Carbon). Highly recommended! Thick,soft and well made,with a lot of colour combinations.

This is my first fjord flannel,but not likely my last. The fjord flannel is probably the best flannel I've ever owned.

I got the sugar pine/ el cap khaki and get lots of compliments on it. I'll be putting this shirt through it's paces around town and on the water and if it's anything like any of my other Patagonia gear,I'll be wearing this shirt for a long long time. My only complaint is the sizing. I'm 6'1" roughly 195lbs with what I consider an athletic build. I have rather broad shoulders and a more narrow waist. For reference I normally wear a 16.5" x 36" tailored fit dress shirt. In the past,I've been able to wear medium Patagonia shirts and jackets. Being that this shirt is a "relaxed fit" I figured I'd be able to fit a medium however the medium in this shirt was very tight in the shoulders,chest and armpit area. The waist was perfect,not too tight but not billowy. The large fit great in the shoulders however the waist fits a lot more loose than I'd prefer. I ended up with the large since it's more comfortable and I'll just have to live with the over sized midsection. Still a great shirt,just wish the fit would be better.
I live in these shirts in cooler weather! They work as a light jacket in mild temps,go great under a vest and they are a fantastic layer when the temps get colder.

A HECK of a shirt
I got caught in a winstorm this weekend up at Tahoe while wearing this shirt. It performed great. I never would have thought a cotton shirt could be so warm. I was out there for over two hours by the side of a lake waiting for help with a capsized boat,and I was glad to be wearing this shirt! As good if not better than a fleece.
This years cut is just a wee bit smaller,but it is making a bigger difference in the ease of fit. Feels constricted in comparison to my older Fjord shirts. Why? People are not getting smaller. It is a heavy weight flannel,it should not fit like a glove. Italian style is great,I just don't want it in a "relaxed fit". The sleeves are a... Read More good inch shorter,but more importantly,also narrower. They tend to ride up when you are moving about. There is also a very small difference in the shoulder,arm yolk area, again making the feel tighter than desired. I have Pima cotton shirts from more than 24!!! years ago,when they were called "Portugese flannel",and they still fit perfectly. I have a Pima shirt from a few years ago,and it seems almost unchanged in sizing. Please redefine the Fjord to retain a timeless,dependable fit,in keeping with the tremendous quality,and unique patterns that are synonymous with Patagonia.
Great for everyday use and car camping
Second one I've bought. I like to wear things until they're very worn,but got this second one because I like the first so much.

Will have to return it for an XXL. So if anyone does even 5 chin ups a day, steer clear of this sizing. It's a L at best.

I got this for my little brother. He hasn't even had an opportunity to wash it yet because he has worn it nonstop.

Thank you, but please get sizing in order! Otherwise 10 stars, not just five.
Favorite flannel - 2014/15 season slightly smaller
This is the fourth season in a row that I have purchased a fjord flannel. I love these shirts and feel like it is reasonable to buy one per year.

If I had to describe the organic cotton used in the shirt in two words, it would be: durable an... Read Mored soft. I wanted to just make sure to point out that this season the cut is ever so slightly smaller, putting me at the very edge of the Medium being too small (6'2" 195 lbs). Medium relaxed fit usually work well for me, and large slim and large regular usually fit me for Patagonia products as well. I noticed the difference immediately, but I still love it. Each other season the flannels felt exactly the same. Wish we could do half stars, I'd do 4.5.
Great styling. Feels super soft and comfortable. I wear it as a layer and by itself. I'm a Medium at 5'11/6' and 160-170. It will shrink a bit.

Emblematic of a lifestyle

(I'm near... Read Morely 6' and 155 lbs.) Discovered this on sale and hoped and prayed I'd gotten lucky. Zero regrets. Love the quality and weight of this org cotton. The cut is just right on me. It will see plenty of use over time in my day to day. When heading out my tendency would be to wear a wool sweater over it and then a wind breaker/ shell to complete things. For me a great rig for all but the most bitter conditions when walking/ taking longer hikes. Allowing that you get closer to the fit you desire... hard to feature anyone not loving this shirt and getting many happy miles out of it.
This is a timeless jam that I expect to enjoy for many moons to come. Whether it's sitting in the Westy having another cup of joe before wading the Metolius to cast a few dries, hitting the brewpub with the gang after getting off the hill or cruising through town on the Schwinns with your lady, this is the only flannel you need.

It's very slim fitting in the forearms and biceps, waist and chest are good, when I flex biceps it's skin tight, arm length is surprisingly o.k. Nice shirt but there are other brands selling flannel just as nice for half the price that are also made in China, Bottom line imo, average weight flannel made of organic cotton with the Patagonia name marked up accordingly but made in China. If it were a hair bigger and for the price it was made in either N or S. America I would keep it but it's going back.
This is an amazingly versatile flannel. I wear it almost everyday for any occasion. It is very comfortable yet rugged and warm, but not too hot.

Big guys beware: Patagonia XXL shirts still sport sleeves that are far too short for tall men. I wear a 38-inch sleeve and none of Patagonia's shirts come close despite the claims of the store workers. Patagonia needs to include tall sizes with extra-long sleeves in the XXL sizes.
Best Flannel Ever
This is the perfect flannel. Hands down. I now own 3 of them. The shirt is a great cut, top notch quality, and when you put it on, you feel like a man.

I generally try n... Read Moreot to skate in these shirts because I like them so much, but I have done it, and I've even taken a couple spills.

Best fitting shirt I own, and I can wear it for anything as long as it's under 65 degrees. Wear it all week long and wash it at the end of the week. It looks just as good sitting in on a casual business meeting as it does trekking in the hills.
Be patient with the fit on this shirt...when I first wore it I was disappointed. I'm six foot two and skinny and the medium was as other reviews have mentioned...too baggy and too long in the torso. The sleeves however, were just right on my long arms. But as I've worn it and washed and dried it, this shirt has shrunk to fit me perfectly....

Thanks Patagonia for knowing to cut this big enough to allow the organic cotton to shrink! Now I just need to stop drying it so it won't shrink too much:) Highly recommended!

Great for North Dakota

I have bought two Fjord Flannels since 2009. It is probably my favorite Patagonia product. I have always worn a size small. I just wanted to say that every year since 2009 the fit on these shirts has been updated. The 2009 Fjord Flannel had 6 buttons and all later ones have 7. The 2010 model was very large but I liked it once I had the bottom hemm... Read Moreed. The 2011 shirt was a little too tight in the chest for my broad shoulders, but the sleeves fit a little better and the length wasn't as long. I think this 2012 model is fantastic. Much improved from last year. Once I washed and dryed it in the machine (which I prefer to do) the sleeves and overall shirt shrunk maybe 3-5% and still continues to fit great. The sleeves, length, and shoulder room fit wonderfully. I wouldn't change a thing. After several outings my shirts tend to stretch a bit then after washing they come out clean, soft, and just like before. Please, Patagonia keep this year's sizing specifications in mind next year, when I'll be looking for two more wonderful colors. Thanks!

November-March daily wear
I wear the Fjord flannels constantly from late fall through all of winter. Over a warm baselayer and under a light jacket/sweater, I remain toasty walking around at just freezing temps.

If you are also slender and do not want to tuck this shirt in, I highly recommend sizing down. Here's what I mean by a perfect fit: the small Fjord is not skin-tight on me, but it is closer to trim than baggy, as much as an oversize flannel can be trim. When standing with my arms down at my sides, the sleeve covers the first inch of my palm, and the final button is maybe 1.5" below my navel. A small is indeed too short for me to tuck, but I never wear this as a dress shirt. If I had a bigger chest and wider lats, at my height I'd consider a medium.

Like an old friend!
Purchased this shirt in size small as Patagonia shirts are being cut large these days. Normally wear a medium. Fits great and feels like a well-worn warm flannel should right off the bat. This will become a favored wardrobe staple. Order one size down unless you prefer oversize shirts. Silt color is very cool.
Favorite shirt to date!
My favorite shirt that I have purchased from Patagonia to date. I am 6' 180 pounds, and I usually buy medium shirts through Patagonia. But when I got this shirt in medium it was like I was putting on one of my wife's shirts! So I went up to a large and I am extremely happy. I got the comstock heritage color(side note, you could hide in pl... Read Moreain site with this color!)
I have not worn the shirt much yet as it is mid Sept and not that cool yet. When I have its is soft and built to last, I have not seen a flannel this beefy ever. I like it so much I'm gonna buy another one. Can't wait for cooler nights and eventually snowy days! I'll give it 5 stars when its made in the USA!
Favorite Patagonia Shirt Ever
Fantastic shirt that is tough as nails. It holds up well in the PNW rain. I have a couple of these and one has shrunk quite a bit more than the other. The shirt is long enough to tuck in but not so long that it looks silly untucked. Placing my order for 2 more today!
Great Flannel Shirt
I like everything about this shirt. It can be worn tucked in or out. It's made from a soft and thick flannel that is warm, but not hot. Like all of the Patagonia products I have ever bought, the design is functional and the craftsmanship is excellent. The Medium fit is true and shrinkage is minimal.
Last Year Was Better
Like others have mentioned, the sizing was much better last year. I bought 3 of these shirts last winter and basically lived in them through the fall/winter/spring. This year, I was looking forward to buying 3 more. I had read online that the cut/sizing of the shirt had changed so I decided to purchase 1 shirt and make sure it fit properly before b... Read Moreuying additional. I'm 6ft 1in/195 lbs and last year a M fit perfect. This year, due to changes in sizing I decided a L was needed for sleeve length. Unfortunately, so much fabric was added through the chest area that the L is way too big. I really wish Patagonia would have kept the same measurements as last year....alas, I will not be ordering any more Fjord flannels this year as the sizing is just too "off"
Poor cut/size. Would fit an onion well
I love the "heft" and weight of this shirt, the style is great. What I can't figure out is the fit. I'm 6'5 and around 225. In XL this shirt's torso seems cut for someone 30-40 pounds heavier in the gut. The sleeves are 2-3 inches too short. I wish Patagonia would realize that tall people aren't generally fat. A l... Read Moreine of long or tall sizes would be ideal so that I could buy Larges instead of XLarges, but then the sleeves would really be too short. Sadly, I've given up on Patagonia sportswear. I know you can't please everyone, but they don't really even seem to be trying.
I hadn't worn a flannel shirt in almost a decade, but I'm making up for lost time with this one. Thick, but not too thick, and so very soft, it's become an essential component of my fall uniform. Patagonia sizing, with their various fits, can be a little tricky, but at 5'10" 150, the Small fits me perfectly. Typical excelle...
