Comfy but small arms
Love the shirt but the circumference of the arms is way too small. I'm 6 foot 4 and 265 lbs and pretty muscular. The arms are so narrow that I cannot roll up the sleeves and button them like my other fishing shirts (Orvis, Simms, etc). I would have sent it back but its super comfy and will choose it for cooler temps and just wear the sleeves d... Read Moreown.
Crispy After Multiple Washes
This shirt is perfect for going to work when you need a more formal look than a t-shirt or short sleeve button down but its +90°. I swapped out the paracord zipper pulls with a neutral because Orange+Blue dont play in the Fall where Im from. Go Dawgs!
The jump between xxl and 3xl is insane!
There is so much amazing gear that Patagucci makes, that being said, being a very tall and not petite person XXL is usually too short. Thinking I would get some extra length from a 3X shirt I ordered it. The difference between a XXl and a 3X shirt is like a 1-2 person tent to a 6person tent. It is ridiculously huge. Not what I would expect from Pat... Read Moreagonia. Bummer.

Hi Miller! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're really sorry to hear about the disappointment with the difference in size between XXL and 3XL. We truly appreciate this feedback as it's crucial to improving things for future seasons. We'll pass this along to our design team.
Should be renamed the sauna shirt.
I tried this shirt last year on some very hot days floating the North Float of the Flathead. The material doesn't breathe at all, and the shirt was beastly hot. But the temperature was over a hundred. I returned the shirt, but I really wanted a white sun shirt for rafting in hot weather, and I was willing to give it another chance. I used in J... Read Moreackson Hole when the temperature was in the 70s and 80s: same thing. The material of this shirt simply doesn't breathe and makes your feel like you're in a sauna. A far better shirt for the sun is the Island Hopper, which I've used many times now: way cooler in hot weather.
Great lightweight sun shirt that actually is UPF
I've owned previous versions of this shirt and this is a vast improvement in lightness and breathability. I love the popped collar feature, but I have one suggestion for improvement. The collar doesn't stay nearly as perky as you would like it to. I've been using a paper clip to hold it up, but it would be easy to update the buttons... Read More that keep the collar folded down so that they could do the job. Right now the buttons for the left and right side are mirror images. They could be reversed (so they are male female across the midline of the body). Then they could snap together and help hold the collar up and still be used to hold the collar down!
Had to grab the deal (sale) for a great shirt that I own in other colors
Not quite Summer where I am, but I already have the same shirt, but in a different color, and on sale made it a lock. Over some years, I find that nearly all the clothes/outerwear I have are Patagonia. That's equally due to the quality and company ethics.
Why change a good thing
I own several of these shirts from past years. My favorite travel, guiding hot weather shirt. The quality and fit has been amazing. Went to order a couple new ones for this guiding season and they changed the fit. The shoulders are way tighter/less material in the back. I even tried ordering a size up which was huge, but still tight in the should... Read Moreers/under arm when putting my arms straight out front or in a casting position.

Thank you for this review, Josh; we appreciate the feedback. We're so sorry the current version of this shirt isn't working for you! Please remember you are always welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) anything that isn't right for you. By the way, it looks like the one you had previously may have been Style Number 54254, from Spring 2019. You may be able to find it from time to time on our Worn Wear site. Please let us know if we can be of any help!
Does the job
I love the collar on here, it has extra fabric you can turn up to protect your neck. The only thing I don't love is the sideways pockets. They have zippers, but if you put something in there and don't zip them up the stuff will fall out. I think I just prefer regular top open pockets. Also I'm a woman, but this shirt fits me fine, I ... Read Moreliked it better than the women's color options.
This is larger than other Patagonia XS shirts. They should make XXS
Response from PatagoniaFebruary 24, 2022
Thank you for your feedback! Our Sol Patrol Shirt is a "relaxed" fit design, so we recommend taking a look at our "slim" fit shirts when we offer our Spring and Summer 2022 products. We hope you'll find a better fitting shirt soon, but please reach out to us if you'd like any assistance with measurements.
Trout fishing, great shirt!
I've worn this shirt a week now during autumn colors. Lightweight, quick dry and protects back of neck and arms from sun. Pockets were cool and easy access to gear and tackle. Later during the days, the sleeve roll-up and button strap works and looks good!
A little too big for the size
Nice shirt but really feels a bit too big and not very well tailored
Response from PatagoniaSeptember 30, 2021
Thanks for the feedback Michael. This shirt is meant to be a bit oversized and boxy to protect from sun. You might prefer something like our [Men's Long-Sleeved Self-Guided Hike Shirt](https://www.patagonia.com/product/mens-long-sleeved-self-guided-hike-shirt/41900.html) for a slimmer fit.
Very Comfortable and Practical
This is the 3rd shirt of this type I've purchased. They are very comfortable, and practical with several pockets with zippers which I especially like. It would be nice to have more color choices, such as forest green, bright turquoise, navy blue, black/gray. I would certainly buy more.
Best shirt on the market. Period
I love those shirts. I owe a few of them. They recently changed the design a bit but it's even better than before - which was already perfect. Patagonia should come up with more colors like khaki green or navy blue or a different beige. I wear those shirts every day. They look awesome no matter where I am or what I do. I will keep buying those... Read More shirts until they are worn out or I die. It's as simple as that.
A jacket that feels like a silk shirt!
I like to wear layers of clothing and I think that this offers me the ability to wear in the evening and in the morning and make do without it during the afternoons when its too hot. However it does protect from the sun as I did wear it on the beach in Santa Cruz California! Plus its a Patagonia! I love The amount of space with extra pockets. On...

A too-hot sun shirt
I used this shirt to run the North Fork of the Flathead in July, the temperatures in the 90s. I roasted in it, the polyester material not breathing well and sticking to my skin. I had an A/C shirt along and used that: bliss, cool and comfortable. It would be worth making a long-sleeved A/C shirt in white. It would be a winner for river running and ... Read Morefishing.
Better than Columbia's PFG
I literally bought a white PFG button down, and this one. I returned the PFG same day. Why, you ask? The Patagonia version fit better to my body, a bit slimmer in the torso and waist, but by no means tight. It also looked cleaner, less going on with flailing vents and all that madness on the PFG. PLUS I get the good feeling of supporting a B-Corp. ... Read MoreEasy.
Amazing Shirt - Except sleeve width
I wanted to love this shirt. Everything is great - EXCEPT the sleeve width at the biceps. Im in good shape - XL is my standard Patagonia top size. These sleeves were so tight at the biceps, rolling up the sleeves was impossible and sleeves down my arms became fatigued after just a few minutes of wear at home. A little more casting room in the back ... Read Morewould be nice also. I ordered this in two colors and returned them both. Would try again if there was a redesign.

Hey Lee, we appreciate the feedback on the Men's Long-Sleeved Sol Patrol Shirt and we're sorry to hear that it was too tight in the arms for you. Please note, we have access to measurements if you ever need them, simply reach out to customer service. After some research, we found a similar option with a bigger bicep measurement, our [Men's Long-Sleeved Self-Guided Hike Shirt](https://www.patagonia.com/product/mens-long-sleeved-self-guided-hike-shirt/41900.html?dwvar_41900_color=PGBE&cgid=mens-shirts). The Sol Patrol Shirt in XL comes in at 8.875" at the bicep when laying flat, but the Self Guided Hike Shirt comes in at 9.75". It could work out better for you, please check it out!
Great Sun Shirt
Bought this for a 5-day Middle Salmon trip. Generally, I run hot, and was not really sure if I would be able to wear long sleeves in the blazing sun, but this shirt ended up being a life saver. After a day of sunburning myself, I wore this the next 4 days (all 80+ degrees and full sun), and it was quite comfortable. Fabric is lightweight and breath... Read Moreable, but the ripstop feels substantial in hand, not cheap. Venting on the back helps. Able to swim in it or douse it for extra cooling, it dried quickly and was comfy while wet. I'm 5'8" 180lbs, the shirt is just slightly longer than I'd ideally like it (to wear un-tucked), but this is usually the case for me - to fit my shoulders, it'll be a bit long for my torso. All-in-all, no complaints, would recommend, does the job its designed to do very well.
Arms way too tight, not recommended
First the good: Love the design with the front chest pockets, breathable material, thoughtful glasses wipe inside, buttons to roll up the sleeves. Was really excited about the Upwell Blue color/pattern which is really cool. The non-so-good: The arms are WAY TOO TIGHT! I'm not a bit guy (6ft, 175lbs), I wear medium or large Patagonia and I orig... Read Moreinally ordered the medium. Immediately the arms felt tight, and if I bent the elbow the fabric just stretched tight like it was about to burst (Hint: This is NOT stretch fabric). And when I made the mistake of trying to roll up the sleeves, it cut off circulation (like a tourniquet). Ridiculous. So I exchanged for the large, which unfortunately has the same issue: The arms are cut way too small/thin (and the large is too long so it doesn't fit right anyway). I have worn many Patagonia clothes over the years and this is just disappointing. FAIL!
Fit is a little big.
I really like the material and the cut however it fits bigger in the chest than other, similar shirts in the same size.

Thanks for the feedback, Adam! This shirt is designed with a "relaxed" fit to allow for better air flow in hot weather, as well as range of motion when fishing. If you find that you don't care for the extra room in the chest area, please reach out to return it. We'll be happy to [help](https://help.patagonia.com/s/)!
