Rated 1 out of 5 by JB19991 from does not breath This is probably a waste of time. It doesn't look like Bean takes any of this information and uses it to improve there products .I bought five or six in various colors. I had Bean Tee's in the past. These are not the same. These shirts are treated with a chemical that seals them airtight. I thought after a few washings this stuff would wear off, but it doesn't. Try wearing a plastic garbage bag for an entire day and you will experience the same level of comfort as the Bean Tee's. Gave all of mine to Good Will. I think I know where the guy went that tried to reinvent Coke, he now works for LLBean.

Rated 2 out of 5 by PHXKevin from Use to be my favorite shirt I'm very disappointed with the drop in quality of these carefree shrinkfree shirts. I've been buying these for years and they have been my go to shirt. The recent order of these shirts shows that they quality has declined yet the price has not. The fabric is thinner than it use to be and doesn't feel like the quality they use to be. These shirts use to last for multiple years but just feeling the thinness of the fabric I can already tell that these shirts won't last more than a year. They have the feel of a cheap quality shirt I would buy at a major discount retailer. I'm very disappointed and I don't think I'll continue to purchase these shirts going forward.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Drew from Quality Change I recently ordered three unshrinkable tees (two with a pocket and one without) to add to the two that I bought about two years ago. Like many other recent reviewers, I noticed a massive decline in quality. The older version was thicker, better material, and much softer. I loved them. The new ones feel cheap and thin, and I'm really disappointed. I thought the other reviews might be wrong so I ordered anyways, but alas, the reviews are accurate. I returned all 3. It's really sad to see LL Bean sacrificing on quality, and it's the first time I've experienced such a thing with this company, ever since my first purchase of Bean Boots years ago.

Rated 3 out of 5 by CapeStClaire from Great Body, Poor Neck I bought these to replace other older T's about a year to a year and half ago. Initially I was very pleased. I washed them as directed, cold, low dry. Body of the shirt is great, it has remained comfortable and mostly non-wrinkle. My complaint is the neck. It waffles, or as the Jordan ad for another brand called it, it bacons. Each and every neck, wrinkled/waffled & baconed within one to two months. T's bought at another retailer, while not as heavy.oz cotton, have worn much better, with no wrinkling of the neck and approximately the same age (one to two yrs.). I would hesitate to buy these again unless it was confirmed the neck problem had been resolved.

Rated 1 out of 5 by CENTRALTEXASHIKER from NOT FOR OUTDOOR USE I thought this would be a good T shirt. Color was OK,not great, but it was comfortable and fit well. BUT, when I went walking it was like wearing a shower curtain liner. I sweat and it never penetrated the shirt at all. Because the shirt didn't breathe it left me feeling extremely uncomfortable and wet. I called the service center to see how many times I had to wash it before it would start to absorb sweat and start to breathe. They said to send it back because that's what allowed it to be wrinkle free. I don't know where everyone who loves this T shirt is wearing it, but don't wear it outside in the south during summer!

Rated 1 out of 5 by DurhamNH from Water proof I have used LL Bean clothing for over 50 years. Each item lasts almost forever, but when it wears out, I replace it. I just bought 4 new t-shirts to replace those I bought ten years ago. But the new ones are unacceptable, and I returned them. The company advertises that they are stain proof. I am sure they are. But that means they do not absorb moisture. I work hard in these shirts - cutting wood, exercising. I need a t-shirt that absorbs the moisture. These do not. All the sweat just drips down inside the shirt. I have washed them half a dozen times; the stain-repellant coating does not come off. If you want a dress t-shirt, these may work. If you want an undershirt, don't buy them

Rated 2 out of 5 by msten from More "Bacon Collar" I have recently returned many of these t-shirts for the same problem. They all have wrinkled collars after a couple dozen washes. This has been referred to as “bacon collar”. It is a common problem with this t-shirt and is a complaint by many (1-14-16, 1-29-15, 1-1-15, 6-6-14, 4-5-14). This t-shirt is exceptional; it wears well, holds it color and repels stains just like promised. However, what good is it if you are embarrassed to be seen in it! LLB – This is an outstanding t-shirt, but needs the “bacon collar” problem fixed if it is ever going to be up to LLB standards.

Rated 2 out of 5 by jwwindy from Wearable Sauna No problem with the quality of the shirt as it's what I would expect from LL Bean. The problem is that the shirt doesn't breath or wick moisture away from your skin. It's as if one was wearing a plastic bag. Very uncomfortable. Water, i.e. rain, beads on the outside of the shirt which is not so much a problem. The moisture beading on the inside of the shirt is a problem. I've washed the 7 shirts that I purchased, numerous times, hoping to wash out the stain/moisture resistance properties, without success. Searching for an alternative, I ordered a half dozen of the Trail Tees but found them thin and clingy. Not satisfactory at all. Please bring back the breathable Unshrinkable Tee without the stain resistant properties.
