I bought it for my sister. She loves the soft feel and warm colors of the Nautilus Tan. As far as the fit, it looks like a regular fit men's large - more on the athletic fit side. If your disappointed Patagonia doesn't sell the Heavyweight Fjord Flannel (why Patagonia?), buy this instead. You wont be disappointed.
As an older guy, my weight has changed in the last decade. I debated between a large or medium and finally went with the medium. It fits well, maybe a touch snug across my belly. The arm length is good. I love this shirt and now have three of them. They fit just a touch snugger than the Pima cotton shirts.
The Perfect Fit
These flannels are perfect. It is so hard finding 100% cotton anymore; they always seem to have a little polyester or rayon, which I hate. Im also a woman who purchased a handful of these mens flannels, and they fit exactly the way I hoped they would. I wanted them oversized with more of an outdoorsy, dare I say even grunge look, and these delivere... Read Mored. Being on the curvier side, I was never happy with womens fitted flannels. They were always just a little too snug in the chest and hip areas, and never long enough. They had more of a country and western vibe, which was not what I was going for. These flannels are oversized, extremely soft, and super warm. They are great for outdoor activities. I will be able to throw them on over a sweatshirt in colder weather. They would even make great sleep shirts. Who doesnt love an oversized mens shirt to sleep in? I highly recommend these.
Perfect flannel for all occasions. When you need an extra layer it keeps you warm without the bulk of traditional flannels. Excellent fit and looks great. My favorite Patagonia flannel and I have been a Patagonia customer over 35 years. Only problem is my wife and my daughter love it too.
product description says "relaxed fit" yet the sleeves are relatively narrow at the elbow to forearm to wrist and the body has a slightly tapered "waist". Chest pockets are a bit higher and more widespread (to create a more hip snug feel/look?) understand the styling/fit direction here, but figured it would have a more classic ...

Hey Duncan, thank you for sharing your feedback with us on the Fjord Flannel. We're sorry to hear that you weren't a fan of the fit. You're correct that it should be relaxed. If you think sizing up might help with the issue, you're welcome to exchange or you can return as well if you prefer that. To begin both options, click [here](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html).
Great Midweight Shirt
Love this shirt! It fits perfect and is perfect for 60-70 degree weather. Too heavy for summer but it's perfect for the other seasons. As with all Patagonia shirts, I size down from my usual Medium with other brands to a Small. The small fits perfect for me and I'm 5'11" and 175 pounds. Highly recommend this!
Best Flannel There is
I owned the same flannel but different print for years until I've finally worn holes into the elbows. This is the softest and best weight flannel I've ever had and the patterns are subtle but complimentary . Very usable for Camping, hiking, around town, or just a throw on for an extra layer. Honestly the best flannel. I'm a fan of th... Read Moree flan. Oh but I should note, I normally wear a medium in everything, but I bought a small in this flannel.
Hi Bryan! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're stoked to hear that you're a fan of the flan. Also, we appreciate the call out on sizing. This flannel is a relaxed fit so some customers may find that they need to size down. Thanks again for the feedback, its greatly appreciated.
The best flannel shirt
This is the third Patagonia organic flannel shirt I have acquired. Like the others, the sleeves were too long (I wear a 32" sleeve), so I roll them up for a year, until I'm sure there's no more shrinkage (there hasn't been), and then I have them shortened. Any other flannel shirt and it would last another year, maybe two, before... Read More it began to fray, and I'd say the extra cost isn't worth it. Not Patagonia flannel. You'd best like the color and pattern you buy; you're going to have it a long time.
Comfortable and functional=Patagonia
I bought one of these shirts and almost immediately recognized I hated another. Within a month I had six hanging in my closet and found myself rotating through the weekly. They are comfortable and probably the best every day shirt that Patagonia makes. I love the feel agains my skin, on cold days I wear a capilene layer underneath. What is wonderfu... Read Morel is the weight of the cotton and the warmth. I have been buying Patagonia since 1974-75 and these shirts are excellent.
A Cozy Shirt Useful for Indoor and Outdoor Use
When this shirt first arrived from Patagonia, I assumed from looking at it and feeling, that it was going to be useful only for outdoor use. Not true; it's really an all-purpose shirt that feels good both indoors and outdoors. Excellent fit and finish. I'm glad I got two in different colors. I enjoy them both.
Not the same thickness or fit compared to previous shirt. Much thinner material and smaller fit. Both sizes were large but this one is smaller and thinner material.
We appreciate your feedback and will follow up with you in an email to investigate what might have caused the difference. As always, we welcome you to return it if you are unhappy with the performance. Our Customer Service team will be happy to [help](https://help.patagonia.com/s/)!
This midweight flannel shirt seems a tad bit lighter and a smidgen less snuggly than previous iterations. So perhaps my daughters wont be in such a rush to take it for themselves. It keeps an old man comfy both outdoors and inside, during the desert cold. The plaid design remains classically Patagonian.
The shirts are different this year
I have three of these hanging in my closet from last year and the year before--I have loved these shirts. But this year's shirts are different. I agree with the review from 11/19. The same "large" size from past years that still fits so well is much tighter this year. And the fabric doesn't feel the same, either--thinner this ye... Read Morear.

I agree that its a different fit than last year. I ordered my husband another shirt in the same size since he really liked lasts years Fjord shirt. The color is great and the shirt is very nice. But the sleeves are tight on him he cant roll them up and its a little snug around his middle. Granted he is older and has a bit of a belly in front. I thi... Read Morenk it would be fine for a slimmer person. Its not unwearable but when directly compared to last years sleeves definitely narrower.
Beautiful But Runs A Bit Small
Beautiful, soft Flannel. But definitely runs a bit Small. I have other brands and other Patagonia XXL that are way bigger than this Flannel. A little tight in the shoulders and back.. I am hoping it will adjust a little bigger as I break it in, but I would suggest going a size higher if possible.
Thanks for your feedback, Darrin! This particular flannel shirt is a "relaxed" fit design, while we have others that are "slim" or "regular" fit, so we're not sure if the shirt you received might have been defective, but if the fit isn't right, please reach out to our Customer Service team.

PILLING. Pilling. Pilling.
Simply Touching/rubbing the fabric causes PILLING!!! Worst Patagonia product I ever bought in 10+ years.
Hi Mike, we are sorry Fjord Flannel has begun to pill. This is not a known issue with these flannels though pilling can be inevitable with knit garments as it is the nature of those fibers. With that being said, there are various products that can remove the pilling so your flannel can look good as new! We recommend using a Sweater Stone or fabric shaver to remove pilling. To prevent pilling in the future, try washing it either by hand in cool to cold water, or separately in your washing machine on the gentle cycle. It's best to lay it flat to dry rather than place it in the dryer where the fabric can easily get upbraided. Of course, if you are not satisfied with your purchase, you may send it in for a warranty evaluation. Just give us a [call or chat in](https://help.patagonia.com/s/) so we can set that up for you.
Great Fit for Taller Folks
I'm impressed with the mid-weight version of this shirt. I've had the heavy weight version and found it too boxy and kind of frumpy looking. This is a little more form fitting through torso and shoulders and arms and the arm and body length is perfect for my 6'3" frame. I love the Smolder Blue/Mountain Plaid colour and design. ... Read MoreWould love to see some solid (non- plaid) designs in the future.
I bought this shirt to replace my previous Fjord flannel. Hundreds of days of comfort and then my dog got ahold of it. I just had to have another one! It is incredibly warm and comfortable, Works great for all my adventure trips and camping as well as everyday wear. Fantastic flannel!
DIFFERNT FIT from last season
I've had at least 1 Fjord Flannel in rotation for the last 8+ years and this was the first time i was disappointed with the shirt, the fit of the shirt is pretty different from the previous years. I even reached out to the CS team and they said everything SHOULD be the same, fit/cut/measurements, but they either changed the fabric supplier or ... Read Morefactory from last year and that should be the only difference. Comparing the new shirt up to the one from last season, you can tell that things are different and in some places by about an inch (while the shirt is laid flat). Ended up returning this one to find one from last season from a retailer. Was pretty disappointed in the change, hope they sort this out or call out that there is a difference.
In between sizing
I'm 5'11", 215lbs, broad shoulders, barrel chested, with a longer torso. I'm in between a L and a XL for Patagonia, in most other shirt brands I'm an XL. I purchased both the L and XL. 'Out of the box' the L was a little too snug in the chest and the XL is (unfortunately) too long in the sleeves. A shirt too small... Read More/too snug is a shirt I'm not going to wear. I went with the XL, I'm hoping it shrinks a little in the wash.
Super soft and great quality. Had to return because it was too wide, would be great if it came in slim fit.
Hey Erica, thanks for the review. We don't have many slim fit long-sleeved button down options, but we do have one worth checking out! It's our [Men's Long-Sleeved Vjosa River Pima Cotton Shirt](https://www.patagonia.com/product/mens-long-sleeved-vjosa-river-organic-pima-cotton-shirt/53900.html?dwvar_53900_color=PGBE&cgid=mens-shirts). Another option would be to exchange for a size down.
Biceps/Upper Arms Too Constricting
This re-designed (Midweight) Fjord Flannel is now too tight/constricting around the biceps/upper arms, including armpits and shoulders. I definitely feel a restricted range of motion with this new version, compared to the previous design of the Fjord Flannel. Not sure why you guys list this as "relaxed fit". The fit around the torso seems... Read More like a regular fit to me but the upper arms seem like a slim fit, due to the lack of range of motion. I'll stick to my Lightweight Fjord Flannels, which are much better dialed in, fit-wise.
Hi J, thanks for taking the time to provide your feedback! We're sorry to hear the sizing didn't quite work out. We'd be happy to assist with a [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) if you haven't already done so.
Changed Design Since Last Year
I bought several of these last year in large and they fit great! I bough two more this month and they no longer fit! The new design has a smaller chest and smaller arms. Its much more fitted. In fact, I cant really wear at all. Its too small. The large from last season still fits great and looks great. Very disappointing they switched the d... Read Moreesign/size/construction since past year! XL is too big and boxy, and Large is too tight in the arms and chest. I am 511 and 212lbs (very lean and muscular, with 46 chest, 54 shoulders,18 arms). There should be notices when Patagonia changes design or suppliers or sizing.
Hey Michael, thank you for leaving us a review on the Long-Sleeved Organic Cotton Midweight Fjord Flannel Shirt. We're sorry to hear that you've experienced size discrepancies between your older version and this new version. We double checked to see if any changes were made in the fit, but all we could find is that we now source the cotton used in this shirt from Portugal, the fit should be the same. We've emailed you to gather some more information to make sure this is not a wide spread manufacturing issue. We appreciate you bringing this to our attention!
Good, with potential to be great
This product is very well-constructed. The quality is excellent and will likely last you many, many winters. However, I find the sizing to be less than ideal. The arms are tighter than the lightweight fjord flannel and so is the torso. They also run longer than the lightweight shirt. I wear a S in the lightweight Fjord flannel and have to size-up t... Read Moreo an M for these shirts. Unfortunately, the M ran way too long despite fitting in the arms and torso, so I ended up returning it. Wish they made them fit like the lightweight shirts, especially since this shirt is probably worn by most as a mid-layer, it would make good sense to make them baggier to allow for layering underneath. Hope Patagonia can fix this issue because I really WANT to love this shirt, and hope to add it as a staple in my wardrobe alongside the lightweight Fjords in seasons to come.
This is just a great flannel, super soft and well made. As with most Patagonia shirts it runs a bit large, so medium fits me well. Only wish it came with extra buttons.
We appreciate your feedback. This style is a "relaxed" fit so if you'd like a slimmer design, we recommend one of our "slim" or "regular" fit designs. Don't hesitate to reach out if you need any repairs. We'll be happy to [help](https://www.patagonia.ca/customer-service.html)!
Its a Standlex
I have 12 Fjord relaxed flannels.. 8 lightweight flannels.. this is a tweener! Call it a Standlax!! Im 511 and 215(I hate reviews who dont post this!!). As mentioned, I have many relaxed fit Fjord flannels in my inventory. This is a tweener. It is slightly more narrow in the midsection and slightly longer. By slightly, I mean 1/2 inch more narrow a... Read Morend longer. It is very soft and comfortable!! I do not dry any Patagonia product. I hope this helps.
First off, I love the Fjord shirts. I own 2 lightweight versions in XL that fit pretty well in the shoulders but too much fabric in the front. When I tried a size large, it was too tight across the back and under the arms. So XL it was. Then recently I tried to buy a medium weight version in XL. The sizing is completely different. 3-4 inches longer... Read More in the body, longer arms and fits more like a L across the back (tight) if I try to reach for anything. The options above about and when returning dont give enough options to pick from to explain this. Bottom line is that not everyone who needs an XL for their shoulders and chest size is 64. I am about 6 and 205lbs. It would be good to make all weights to the same size specs so one could buy the medium and heavy weights. Not sure why you would change the sizing when you change the weight, thanks.
Perfect weight flannel
Great new addition to the Fjord line. Perfect weight flannel. Very soft, exceptional quality and good styles (love the Sage Khaki). However, it's cut from a different pattern than the super comfortable original heavyweight Fjord Flannel. This version is much less comfortable due to arm holes that are too small, it pulls through the biceps, upp... Read Moreer chest and back, shoulders and elbows (and I'm skinny). A larger size would be way too big. The original Fjord and Pima Cotton shirts are much more comfortable, despite all being relaxed fit. This one is on the slim side of regular, definitely not relaxed. Even the regular fit Lightweight Fjord Flannel and Lightweight Fjord Flannel Hoody are more roomy. With improved tailoring, this would be a year-round, go-to favorite piece that I would own in multiple colors as I do other Fjords and Pima shirts. Until then, and sadly, one and done.
I love patagonia quality when it comes to material and fit. Great color selection! Was wondering if anyone else noticed how much further the pockets are from the middle of the shirt in this style? Just curious. Pocket seems to almost go into armpit on outer edge. Just wondering if anyone else noticed this, if it was intentional or a flaw by designe... Read Morer?
