Top Notch !!,
November 5, 2013
By: marco1968
"This color is very eye-catching & the shirt is the ideal thing to wear in hot/humid climates. So attractive, that I will wear it in winter with a long-sleeve shirt underneath it. This product is a very quality item which can be picked up at a reasonable price during the periodic sales.
Thanks Orvis !!

Comfortable and sturdy,
October 8, 2013
By: Tasmanocoenis
from Royal Oak, Michigan
"I have this short in both the long-sleeve and short-sleeve versions and am very happy with the fit and functionality. The pockets hold reasonable sized fly boxes, the long sleeves are readily secured out of the way and the fit allows for easy casting over even long stroke lengths. Venting in the back provides plenty of air movement and the fabric is very comfortable against the skin. Cleans easily and air dries very quickly. My friend has one in each color!"

WHITE CASTER SHIRT,
January 9, 2013
By: proto
from OCEAN VIEW VIRGINIA
"IT IS SO DIFFICULT TO FIND A LIGHTWEIGHT WHITE SHIRT SUITABLE FOR SEMIFORMAL LUNCHES AND SUPPER. THIS CASTER FITS THE BILLET. IT IS LIGHT WEIGHT UNCLUTTERED BY SQUARE OR WESTERN POCKET FLAPS AND DRIES IN 20 MINUTES ON A WET SUIT DRYER/HANGER WHEN WASHED WITH BLEACH AND LAUNDRY DETERGENT. THE SLEEVES ARE BLOUSIE AND HAVE A RIB SEAM SO IF YOU ARE PORTLY AND REQUIRE AN OVERSIZED FITTING B/C OF YOUR MIDGIRTH STATION, THE ARMS COULD BE TAKEN UP. YOU CAN ALSO FIT A WAIST BAND DRAWSTRING ELASTIC CORD TO THE BOX TAIL IF YOU PREFER TO WEAR THE SHIRT WITHOUT TUCKING IT IN. EXCELLENT CHOICE FOR THE HARD TO PLEASE PERFECTIONIST."

What a great shirt,
October 6, 2012
By: GrisleyAdams
from Sarasota, FL
"I bought the shirt online so I wasn't sure exactly what to expect in terms of fabric, but when I got it boy was I surprised, its so soft! One of the most comfortable shirts I own. Light weight too, I plan on wearing it while fishing in the gulf. The flamingo color is very vibrant and perfect for the laid back, Florida environment."
