    Bush Shirt - 8/15/2014
    By: from Chicago, IL

    I have always loved these shirts, and once owned one as a younger man. I was so happy to see that Orvis offered them, and they did not disappoint. Great fit, great feel and great look!

    Good, not the best - 8/12/2014
    By: from Westchester, NY

    Was expecting a more polished cotton and this is a rougher weave but nonetheless a very well constructed shirt cut in the right proportions.

    excellent quality but large is tremendous with reguards to sizing. I will keep it anyway because of the quality and use it as a smock. I plan to order another in size small

    My Adventure Shirt - 7/17/2014

    I travel around a lot. Sometimes to some inhospitable climates. I need clothes and equipment that will hold up. No matter what the situation or place, this shirt is going to hold up. Worth every penny.

    Riding Shirt - 7/15/2014
    By: from Westfield IN

    Best motorcycle riding shirt ever! 5,000 miles on a round trip from Indianapolis to Glacier Nat Park, MT. Wicks away the sweat, dampens the temperature swings, stops the bugs and road gravel, and stays tucked in. Great pocket space for cell phone and misc. And of course it looks fantastic 24/7!

    By: from Upper St. Clair, PA

    The catalog copy is right on. This is a very rugged and durable shirt, well-made and rugged construction. It's been great for fly-fishing and working around the home. Nice work, orvis!
