    This is a lightweight polo which will be good for the hot summers here in the south. Great for golf I'm expecting. Wanted a purple polo and got this at a great sale price. Watch for sales like I do and you can pick up great deals.

    Feels great! - 1/20/2014

    I was looking for a shirt to use on a trip that would be easy to pack and wash on the road. This works! Looks Good, Feels Great!

    Ultralight Polo - 1/15/2014
    By: from Kamuela , Hawaii

    While the styling and tailoring was Orvis perfection , the light weight & treated jersey fabric was stifling...breathability was too clammy for Hawaii .Sent back for exchange with 100 % cotton shirt in same color and size. Recommend their ʻsurfwashedʻ line of jersey polos .

    You hardly know it's on you. But I have to reserve judgment on other factors until warm weather come back to MN. It does appear to require more pressing of the collar than a typical polo does. Otherwise a finely crafted shirt.

    Great Wicking Polo - 11/12/2013

    Good for those warmer months where the driRelease gets rid of sweatmarks better than 100% cotton. Fit could use some slimming tweaks, but good all-arounder. Own in every color.

    Not for me - 9/30/2013
    By: from N.C.

    I realize the shirt is advertised as the lightest you can get but it is honestly TOO thin. The sizing or cut seems off as well. The XL was too big and the L, while fitting well in my shoulders didn't drape correctly on my pear-shaped body. I normally like Orvis' fit in casual shirts but this one doesn't meet my expectations and I will be sending the product back.

    Hoping for a better fit - 9/27/2013
    By: from New Smyrna Beach, Fl

    I live and work in Florida so the idea of a good fitting ultralight polo sounded great. The fit of the shirt is disappointing. I am 6'2" and the body of the shirt is too short and the sleeves too long. I will be returning the three I purchased.

    Great casual polo - 9/14/2013

    Love the wicking fabric, which makes it fantastic for muggy, hot summer days. Please make it in more colors! I'm a buyer all day. Barely shows sweat, and sweat dries so much faster than with a cotton polo.

    BEST ONE YET! - 8/10/2013

    I tried one of these shirts for golf and was so impressed I bought two more! Very light feeling and they come out of the dryer looking new( took out after ten minutes and hung on line); no ironing needed. Got them at my local Orvis store: great buy.
