Great for the water or casual use too!
Another excellent shirt made for the water or casual use too! Fit - 5'10 and 165 pounds and the medium fits great. Function - plenty of room with the two pockets, length is spot on, light weight and plenty of UV coverage as well. This is an excellent travel piece when you are out on business too. This shirt travels well, requires little to no ... Read Moremaintenance when placed in a suitcase.
Still My Favorite Shirt
I bought 2 new shirts, same style, different patterns. As an outdoor educator I need to be comfortable, dressed for changing temperatures and look presentable for my students. The Island Hopper continues to excel in what I need it to do. Different day, same shirt, different color.
It's the island hopper 2. Enough said...
This is one of the most classic fishing/travel lifestyle pieces of clothing ever made. The fabric is a little less technical than some new school stuff, and wants to be. The shirt breathes well and the fit is comfortable and roomy. The cut looks so dang good with the way the pockets are shaped and the straight hem frame the shirt. Just got the tail...

Love this shirt
Over the years the Island hopper has been my go to shirt for guiding, travel, and fishing. Weather I’m deep in the Deschutes canyon dealing with 100 degree days or out on the humid Yucatán flats it performs just as expected and for that reason I’ll continue to search out the Island hopper for all my adventures !!!!
I have many Island Hopper shirts and wear them almost everyday. I’m 5’9” 170lbs and wear a medium. The fit is slightly loose. Patagonia calls this a “relaxed fit” and it’s perfect for me. The loose fit also works quite well in hot weather for sun protection. I have worn the long sleeve version in 95 degree weather without a problem.
I work at a school in Florida with a/c problems and found this shirt to be a great solution. Classy enough for the job but also great at keeping me cool in a hot classroom. Fabric is breathable and doesn’t seem to hold smells. Looking forward to trying it out on some trails out west this summer.
Excellent for travel
What I like the most is that I can keep my boarding passes without folding them in the pockets (along with my passport,wallet and pen). If you wear this on the plane,then there is no need for an additional light jacket,blanket,etc. Breathable,comfortable,wrinkle resistant! It has high quality written all over it! I have both the long sleeve and the... Read More short sleeve versions and I like them both. I like the slimmer fit on the new version.
Great shirt,poor fit! Bring back the classic cut
These have been my favorite shirts for 15 years. However,the newer models have a much tighter fit,and I find myself returning them. I am 5'10,200 lbs and typically buy large. I wish the old cut and style,with the puckerwear fabric would come back. I find myself buying the older stuff in thrift shops and eBay,rather than this edition. PLEASE,on...

Great hot weather shirt
The island hopper II is my go to travel shirt for city travel or coastal wandering. The shirt worked fantastic in South America along the Equator both walking around or a dressed up dinner. The vents are placed just right to keep you cool and let's the sweat evaporate quickly. The shirt comes out of a packed bag ready for a nice resturant. For...

These are the perfect 3 season shirts. They are the just the right weight for fishing in the warmer months. They are ideal for travel in that they wrinkle very little, need no ironing, and dry overnight. And the hidden pockets protect from pickpockets - ideal for your passport when you need to keep it accessible. They are cooler to wear in hot weat... Read Moreher than any of my shirts. They look nice enough to wear to out to dinner at a a resturant. The ideal shirt!
These are great shirts for almost anything; I wear mine teaching at a university, traveling, hiking, and just knocking around. They stay nice-looking through any suitcase-shower-wring them out ordeals (my wife has a iPhone snap of me wearing one into a shower in Cuba to wash it) and come out of the dryer looking fresh and pressed. The big pockets s... Read Morewallow anything you put in them and nothing has ever fallen out. The pits can get a little stinky due to the high percentage of polyester, but they're easily washed with hot water and dry out overnight. Love these shirts!
Island Hopper LS are the best
Regardless of where I travel during warmer months, Island Hopper LS shirts go along. The new crop with the return to normal square pockets are no exception. They last forever, have great pocket storage for my extra junk and wash easily in the sink, shower or regular machine. They wear great. New colors are pleasant.
Same Great Quality
This is 4th consecutive year I've ordered multiple Island Hoppers, short and long sleeve. I was a little worried when I read the first review about the shirt being resized, as I know Patagonia does sometimes resize products from year to year. However, I ordered the same size I always have (medium), and it fit perfectly, just like they always ... Read Morehave. Still very highly recommended and probably my favorite shirt of all time.
Great shirt/same fit
I was bummed to read the first review saying that these shirts have been resized. I was hoping he got a mislabeled or defective one. I ordered a couple long and short sleeves -- they all are identical in size to the 2 I have from last year. Great travel shirt -- light weight, fast drying, looks good.
Recently had to return 2 XL Island Hopper shirts because of tight fit. They fit more like large. They are definitely not a relaxed fit. I have owned over 10 these shirts over the years and they generally have plenty of room for flyfishing. Very disappointed. When overlayed over my older shirts you can easily see they are cut much smaller. I think P... Read Moreatagonia might be trying to save material cost.
