Quality Camo

Well-made high quality flannel with nice contrasting details on cuff when rolled up

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. They fit really well (I'm 6'1" and wear a Medium, although I have a couple in size Large for a roomier/baggier feel). They're decently warm too; often I&#x2... Read More7;ll go out in 40ish degree weather with just one of these flannels on if I'm not going to be outside for too long. I highly recommend these flannels.

Comfortable cotton flannel

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. Be aware that hem will rise an inch or so after repeated washing/drying. The material is durable and the stitching is top quality. You can find cheaper cotton flannels, but I don&#x2... Read More7;t expect they will last half as long as this one.

Great shirt

Beautiful pattern, nice weight. Washes well.

Great shirt.

Well made, super soft, comes out of the dryer wrinkle free. I bought to wear open over tee shirts. Cool, button up, hot, unbutton. Fit my needs perfect.

All around terrific flannel shirt. Comfortable, warm, sharp pattern. Per our sons who have older versions I expect it to only get better over time.

Great Gift - Son Loved It

Son Loved the camo flannel shirt and camo trucker hat - Great products!!

December 27, 2019

Great for average size-size men.

The large just isn't long enough for 6'4" me. Having a Tall sized shirt would be cool. Back to Lands End.

Love it but bring back

Love it but bring back the hoodies version!!

Second time buying this shirt

Second time buying this shirt for my boyfriend because he loved the first one so much. The first one is still in amazing condition after him wearing it regularly.

December 23, 2019

Great product!

Perfect gift!

I got this for my boyfriend for the winter. He loves it! You can wear it with most things, dress it up or down, it's just perfect!

Beautiful shirt Wonderful fabric

December 16, 2019

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.

December 14, 2019


warm and durable. might have to get some more

December 11, 2019

Awesome fit

I’m a large fellow and the XXL fits great. Plus it’s extremely comfortable.

December 9, 2019


Excellent quality

December 7, 2019

Great shirt!

Just added to my collection. Great shirt that fits well and is warm. Great for wet winters here in the PNW

December 6, 2019

Best flannels ever!

These things are built to last and how are they so soft and warm at the same time! Whole family covered in them. Love love love!! For reference I am 5’7” 150, chesty and XL fits loose the way I like.

December 6, 2019

Super Comfortable

great flannel, fits awesome, made out of great material.

December 4, 2019

Beyond Impressed!

Being 6'3 and 175lb many clothes fit me awkwardly given my torso length and width. However, the Fjord Flannel in Medium didn't hang on me like a scarecrow, nor did it swallow me!

December 4, 2019

Best flannel!

My husband loves these flannel shirts... I think he owns 3 right now... I got him another one for Christmas knowing he's going to be so happy about it!

November 27, 2019

The only shirt I wear for fall and winter.

Perfect fit, perfectly rugged, damned warm.

November 26, 2019

Warm and cozy, runs big

My new go to, so nice and warm. Runs a bit big, I am usually a M but a S for this.

November 25, 2019

Favorite Flannels

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.

November 25, 2019

Comfy and sturdy

Feels like this flannel will last me a really long time.

November 22, 2019

Great shirt, highly recommended

The Fjord flannel is comfortable, warm, durable, and looks great. Good for pretty much any activity and you'll find yourself wearing it a lot.

November 22, 2019

Quality purchase

Really like the camo pattern. Flannel is soft, fits true to size and I couldn't be happier.

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 large was the right length but doesn’t fit as well. Really too bad because I wanted this shirt to work out. But that me not the shirts fault. Plus one more star for Patagonia’s mission t...

So soft

Best flannel material I’ve found anywhere so far. Husband wears his two flannels constantly. They’re the perfect weight- warm but not too warm and buttery soft

November 17, 2019

Comfortable basic

The material is surprisingly cozy and keeps me warm. There is a very subtle pattern to the weave which I find kinda cool. I'm 152lbs, 5'10" and the Small fits perfectly. I'm between a S-M in most brands.

November 15, 2019

Great Flannel

Super comfortable and stylish! I have gotten lots of compliments.

Great Material

Very nice material is not too fuzzy like other fleece, but still warm. Runs a little large, but I prefer the closer fit.

Great shirts, Amazing Service

I had been eyeing these shirts since a friend got one. I recently purchased two and was disappointed to realize I got the wrong size. At 5'10" 150#, I am constantly between Smalls and Mediums depending on the brand and product. I took a shot at the medium after reviewing the sizing guide, but the waist of the medium turned me into a billo... Read Morewing sail. Not confident in my ability to tack upwind, I called up Customer Service and was helped by Deanna (sp?). She was very kind and understanding, and made an exchange for two Small sizes VERY EASY and HASSLE FREE! Frankly, I was blown away to get that kind of personal customer service. The shirts are super comfy, well made, and stylish, to boot. The Smalls fit perfectly. I highly recommend this product and brand. Well played, Patagonia!

I’m 5’9”, 140 lbs. I went with the small and it fits nicely, a little roomy, but very comfortable.

Love the color and material, but it's too short.

I'm a big fan of Patagonia's lighter weight shirts, but this one was noticeably shorter in the torso than the other heavier flannels I ordered.

Super comfortable

Extremely comfortable shirt. A bit on the boxy side. Some shape would be nice.

Fjord Flannel

This is my second Fjord Flannel. It’s the exact same quality as the first. My first was bought in 2015 and I wore it literally all the time in Alaska. I was only in the Anchorage area, but it got me through winters 2015-2019. I wore it almost everyday at work, never ever let me down. It’s my favorite flannel, it’s Patagonia you get what you pay for... Read More.

Perfect Shirt

I've purchased two of these shirts for my husband (who is tough to buy for because he's tall and muscular) and he LOVES them.

November 7, 2019

Cozy and warm

This flannel shirt is super cozy and warm! It has a nice fit, is great to wear casually around town and while cooking dinner at the campsite.

November 4, 2019

Never disappoints

I'm very into flannels and I like to add to my lineup whenever I find a new one I like. I've been getting at least one variant from Patagonia over the last 4 or 5 years and I love all of them. There are always a few variants each year that I really like in terms of the patterns, and they are well made, comfortable, fit well and last long.... Read More One of the first ones I ever got I wore so often that I got a hole in the elbow and I took it into the store and they sent it off to patch up for free. One tip I'll give is that usually I wear a Large in other brands but with most of the Patagonia stuff I wear a Medium, these Fjord Flannels included. 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.

November 4, 2019

My Favorite Flannel

I've been buying this shirt for 3 or 4 years. The fit is consistent. The fabric is comfortable and durable. Plus, the fabric seems to be softer and even higher quality this year. I usually wear size MD shirts but I buy a SM in this shirt because I prefer a closer fit.

The Best

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.

October 30, 2019

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.

October 28, 2019

The best, even for big guys

Fantastic quality, as expected, but great fit as well, even for those with a little extra around the middle. Ended up buying 2 more.

October 23, 2019

Fun in the sun and snow

I love to throw this on as I head out the door...but also have worn it on cold, sunny days on casual hikes in the mountain to include sledding. Sometimes its an outer garment and sometimes, I layer it with a Nano Puff vest--always warm.

October 21, 2019


A fun pattern and a warm, good fit, and ethical. What's not to like.

October 16, 2019

Great Shirt

Size runs large when new, but with 3-4 washings shrinks down to "true to size" Really soft material, comfortable to wear.

October 13, 2019

Fall proof flannel

Bought a couple of fantastic “used” flannels through Worn Wear which I absolutely love. But could not resist getting a couple more when i saw the new patterns. Wife loves seeing me in the newest almost as much as I enjoy wearing it. Great service great products.

October 12, 2019

Perfect Fit

I love the quality of the fabric; Thick, soft, and durable. The product has a high upfront cost, but is more than worth it, because it's all about comfort for me.

October 5, 2019

As expected, high quality, generous fit

I've only had to for a few weeks. As expected. Medium heavy, soft, and warm. I wear it more as a jacket than a shirt. I'm 5'9 145 lb and the SMALL is a generous fit, perfect for a top or mid layer. Colors are great also.

October 2, 2019

I have way too many of these things

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.

Great shirt. Will most likely become much smaller after few washes, for sure size up. My husband has not it worn it yet but feels good & cosy on the body, we got it for his work wear outside for winter.

Colors Missed the Mark

This is a great garment (I own a bunch), but these new colorways are gross. I'm 6' / 170 and a medium fits well.

Fall time is flannel time

As usual, another great flannel shirt from the folks at Pati. Great color, great hand with the fabric, and great fit.

August 31, 2019

Nice heavy weight flannel

Fit is true to size (didn't put it in the dryer because it is 100% cotton). Nice heavy weight flannel and soft feel. Too warm to wear it now for me, but it seems that it would keep you very warm.

August 31, 2019

Make lardium size

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.

Warm and soft. Nice long sleeve length. Plenty of room in the body

August 15, 2019


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.

August 11, 2019

Sizing confusion

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.

Amazing Flannel

I bought the flannel and it came in 3 days, satisfactory to say the least, and when I felt it for the first time it was definitely very soft, but at the same time the weight of the product makes me feel that it is durable from the amount of material that was used. The fit is a perfect fit, not too tight and not too loose either, just right. I would...

My previous Patagonia purchases of

My previous Patagonia purchases of flannel yielded a fine shirt that was manufactured in India and not the PRC.

Comfy and stylish

This is the most comfortable flannel shirt I have ever worn, apart from my other Patagonia flannel. My only criticism would be that XL size is not consistent across products, the t-shirts are tight on me while the flannels are a bit too large.

Not your ordinary Flannel

Bought one size up because of my long arms

Thick but soft & supple. Living in the PNW and being a charter boat captain, I wear a lot of flannel. This is my new favorite. Washed it and carefully dried it on low because flannel always shrinks.

Please don't ever stop making this flannel. Do not change the cut, fit, or sizing. Ever. Have been wearing these for (I can't remember how many) years.

February 21, 2019


Love these shirts but loved them more years back when Made in Morocco. Sleeves wider and length a bit shorter so worked well for me at 5’8” when worn untucked.Now sleeves a bit narrow and hem too long for anyone under 6 foot. Otherwise great designs and materials.

Quite simply....

the greatest shirt ever made, bar none. I have some Fjord flannels that I have been wearing consistently for 10 yrs straight - without even replacing a button. I buy at least one every year when they go on sale. These shirts are freaking awesome!! I live in them!

February 15, 2019

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.

February 14, 2019

Inconsistent Sizing

I bought this shirt in a medium and it fit perfect. High quality shirt, but the second one I ordered in a different color was way too small. There has been a issue with the quality control of sizing consistency lately.

February 14, 2019

Best Flannel

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.

February 11, 2019

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.

Best flannel shirt I've had

The straight hem and very comfortable flannel won me over to this shirt - I now have four. I never tuck it in, so the straight hem is great and looks sharper than the cut of most other flannel shirts. The one thing that keeps me from giving 5 stars is that the hem is a bit long.

Great shirt!! It is "regular fit" so it runs large. I am a large t-shirt, but wear a medium fjord flannel. Very soft cotton and comfortable. I hope Patagonia continues to add more colors and patterns.

So Soft and So Warm

I'm not really a fan of plaid so I went with the Forge grey and I'm glad that I did because it is so easy to match with nearly everything. I am 5'9" and slightly round at the belly.

Not Another Flannel Shirt

Southern California winters aren't exactly brutal but I live in the hills and was looking for a comfy shirt that would take the edge off the chill when the thermostat is turned down, or while working outside. This shirt has hit the mark perfectly. It's fairly thick while remaining flexible enough to lounge on the couch in; has a straight ... Read Morehem that makes it look a bit smarter untucked; and the range of patterns are different from other manufacturers whilst still being eye-bending enough to fit the flannel tradition. I'm 5' 6'' and 160 lbs so I bought both a small and a medium, based on the other reviews that says it runs large, and ended up keeping the medium because I found that the fit across the chest mattered most for comfort; I'm a 39. 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. But that means it goes over a T-shirt or other shirt easily.

Do I hold the Gunniess Book World Record for owning the most number of these shirts? With twelve, and one more on order, probably not.

One thing: in Patagonia’s review video, the fellow says something like these shirts will never go ou... Read Moret of style. To this, I answer that’s because they are never ‘in style,’ in the in/out fashion sense, which of course is what makes them all the more stylish. Wear/Wash/Wear/Love.

Great shirt, but runs big

When they say this is a "relaxed fit," they mean it. Blousy even. If I'm ordering again I'll go for a medium instead of a large and hope the sleeves are still OK.

Doesn’t fit like it used to

I bought a fjord flannel in 2012 and wear it constantly and it’s still in great shape. Just bought a new one in an xsmall and unfortunately it’s way bigger than my old one. I took the tags off and washed hoping It would shrink which it did a little bit but not enough. Now I’m stuck with this flannel that I probably won’t wear. Still a great shirt, ...

Odd fit

Just received my shirt. Looks like very nice material and would be good to wear in winter months. However a very odd fit I’ve never seen before. The body seems ok with a somewhat relaxed fit but the arms are pretty tight so not comfortable and looks weird. It is going back as it’s simply not wearable like that.

It's a wearable hug.

I first came upon this beauty in a small outdoor store in Flagstaff, and couldn't be leave how soft it was.

Cozy, but tears easily

I have four of these flannels. They are very comfortable, but the sleeves tear without any strenuous activity. I wear them casually, so definitely not from rough activity.

Fantastic Shirt

These shirts are perfect. Material, fit, patterns, and quality are top notch. Please don't change these, they are great. I have found them to be a loyal companion for evenings at home by the fire, outside working, and camping and hiking if weight/space aren't a concern.

I literally own seven of these now. Best flannel I've found for backpacking, hiking, and field work (geoscientist). Durable, comfortable, breathes well, just love it. Will probably by more!

Great shirt

Really comfortable for those chilly evenings. Great to have a flannel shirt with a flat hem.

Patagonia has ruined me for any other flannels. The fit,fabric and functionality are above and beyond anything I've worn before. The relaxed fit is comfortable and great for working outdoors.

Best Flannel Out There

I'm pretty picky when it comes to flannel and these shirts certainly meet the criteria. Solid flannels to keep me warm while living in Alaska.

I had read all these wonderful reviews about the fjord flannels and they just happened to be on sale and in my size so I purchased two of them. They are amazing!

Totally worth it!

I have a ridiculous collection of flannels but this was my first Patagonia one and I can honestly say it's the best one I've ever had!

Flannel of all Flannels

The Fjord has been my favorite flannel for the past year with tough but soft fabric that reminds me of warm flannels from years past. The fit is perfect,so I had to buy three.

Excellent cut

I own 3 of those in 3 different colors and I really love them. The cut is great,the material resists machine wash after machine wash and keeps me quite warm. My only small concern is with the colors.

really good,but lighter weight than last year

I'm a big fan of these fjord shirts. I ordered three more this season. And I was surprised to find that Patagonia has changed to a slightly lighter weight cotton than last year? I still love the shirt,but it would have been nice to know up front they had made the change.

The Best cotton Flannel shirt on the market

I am extremely discerning when it comes to clothes and gear. This shirt rules. Whether its for work,labor,or pleasure,this shirt endures and looks great. Colors may mature a bit,but they don't fade.

Comfy and nice shirt--one big detail fail though.

I really like this shirt a lot when I got it. It's very comfortable,it fits right,and it's pretty warm. However,I noticed an issue with the detail that drove me nuts as soon as I noticed it. The plaid pattern is misaligned and a bit askew on the side seams. Maybe I'm in the minority here,and if the lines were at least completely para... Read Morellel,it wouldn't be so bad,but this strikes me as a big miss on the design. It seams (pun intended) to me that the pattern lines on a plaid shirt should connect at the seams.

I usually wear a large (6'2",200lbs,athletic build),but the medium fits me perfectly.

I've Gotten Lots of Compliments

There are a lot of flannel options out there and it is nearly required uniform in the Pacific Northwest.

Waiting for Winter

Love picking up these shirts on sale. If this one is like the other one already in the closet,it should provide good warmth and hold up to use as a layer or just by itself with a vest.

None better
