Most Helpful 5-Star Review
Verified Buyer Reviewed by droF from Novi, Michiganm on Sunday, September 28, 2014I'd rate it 5 stars but I haven't yet subjected this shirt to a buggy environment. Based on an experience this summer in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, I decided to buy this item - other photograpgers in my group were talking about the relief this shirt had provided them during the week long shoot - it was the worst I'd experienced bugwise in over 40 years of shooting in the Upper Peninsula.
It fits well - I'm an XXl guy and is so very light. I'll be wearing it even when bugs aren't an issue - its an attractive shirt.
Reviewed by Centrecut from Indiana on Saturday, May 25, 2013Very nice lightweight breathable sun/bug protecting shirt. This shirt runs truer to size than their other lightweight bonehead type fishing shirts. Whereas, the bonehead shirts you should size down this bug shield shirt order your true size.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by William from Tuscaloosa on Thursday, January 24, 2013Perfect shirt for summer outdoorsing, or backpacking any time of year. It is big around the middle but I can deal with that
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Jay from Bremerton, WA on Saturday, January 19, 2013Bought shirt to wear on Africa safari later this year
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Champ from Houston on Friday, August 31, 2012Paid twice as much for first purchase from another retailer. Now have three sets snd have been using on the farm. So far I have not had a problem with chiggers or mosquitos but real test will occur this fall on early morning dove and duck hunts.

“I can't decide on sizing. I'm a good fit for a 15/33 dress shirt. This type of shirt should not fit snugly, but I don't want to get lost in it. I have two shirts more or less in this style, both are medium. One fits rather well and the other is too loose. Can you make a recommendation. I will purchase two shirts. Perhaps I should get one small and the other medium and exchange for the one that fits the best. What say you?”
