Love this shirt

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:Runs small

I love this shirt, but i am confused about the reviews.... I am exactly 5'6" tall, and weigh exactly 168 lbs... And the mediums feel tight. I can fit into them well enough. But if i swing my arms like i am casting out some line. I nearly burst out of the forearms! And as a long range thru hiker, i can tell you all now, that i am not overly muscular! I guess you could say i am "wiry"... Therefore, If i were to actually use these out in the field, i would have to choose one size larger. For a night out with friends, the medium was alright.

Update: After wearing these shirts a number of times. I have to admit that i still love them. But, again.... They are best for those nights on the town, or sitting by the fire circle etc... If i were to wear these out in the "field"... I would have to order the next size up. At least they are finally making "insect repellant" clothing with enough style to wear into town! The Dusk color looks particularly nice with a pair of khaki colored shorts... The Cairn colored shirt looks very nice with a pair of jeans. They are functionally styled to keep the ladies close.... But the bitting bugs away... Would be especially nice on vacation someplace like Florida. Although i am not the best to judge this, as my vacations are usually spent amongst the mud and the bugs someplace up in the mountains or deep in the woods...

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit:True to size

Everything about Arthur's review is spot on. Great shirt, lots of sweet features and its versatile.

I'm 6'2" about 200 lbs and wear a L comfortably. Its got a nice slim fit, and makes me look very handsome according to my wife.

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit:True to size

After a brutal battle with mosquitos in the Uintas earlier this summer (they won handily) I decided to try some bug clothing out for future backpacking and mountain excursions. I also wanted a button up so I could dump some heat and look good out there. Enter the Wayward Sentinel. It has thus far done a great job of keeping the bugs away from me and thus allowing me to keep my sanity. Initially I had some hesitation as the shirt did not have a back mesh panel or any sort of venting and I was concerned that it may make me overheat. To test that I did what I always do when confronted with fears of comfort and breathability, I took it on a trail run. With the top two buttons undone and the sleeves rolled up (the sleeve keeper buttons are one of my favorite parts), it performed admirably and was able to keep me somewhat dry and comfortable (evaporated slightly slower than I soaked it). After that initial test I have hiked in it a lot and have found it to be very comfortable. I also like the versatility in that I can button it up and roll the sleeves down when it starts getting chilly. The material is also a good compromise between super flimsy and too heavy.

To wrap up, it is comfortable, looks good, keeps the bugs away, and meets my needs. I got a size M and I am 5'10 165lb and found it was a good fit.

Fly fishing shirt of choice

    I love the insect repellent properties in this shirt. Keeps the bugs off of me and keeps me out on the water for the long haul. Great fit and really breathable venting design makes it a good choice for all kinds of warm weather activity.

    This is my go to fly fishing shirt!

      I really like this shirt because it looks really nice but is also functional. A really well made shirt for this price point and definitely one that will last and has many applications. Fit was perfect - Med (6'0, 175lbs).

      Hey there Andy,

      We do have some ordered to come in! Unfortunately we do not have an exact arrival date, but we're hoping to have them in by mid March. I would recommend checking back in every week or so, and we should have them ready for purchase!
