Patagonia Men's Long-Sleeved Early Rise Snap Fishing Shirt

September 6, 2021

Go-to Anything Shirt

After one wash, this shirt is ready to go. I have always enjoyed Patagonia clothing primarily due to its durability despite wind, rain, and rock. This shirt will by no means be any different. It is so comfortable that you nearly forget that you're even wearing a fleece shirt. It seems to breathe well as I haven't gotten too warm indoors w... Read Morehile wearing it. The zippered pocket is really nice to stow away a passport or airline ticket without having to mess with a backpack strap and the button flap. Great idea there. The plastic snap closures for the front and pockets are just as bomber as stuff that I have purchased 20 years ago. Another great product from a great company. I am about 5'9" & 210lbs and a medium fits me with a t-shirt underneath, but anything heavier would require a large. Fits a bit bigger for a Patagonia.

Great Comfort

I love the fit and comfort of these shirts! I just wish for a few more color choices.

September 3, 2021

warm and comfortable

I live on the coast where it is cool and windy. This shirt is warm and looks good.

I bought this shirt for the chest POCKETS. I wish Patagonia would make bigger chest pockets on all their mens shirts pullovers, jackets you name it. the chest pockets need to be at least 7 inches deep to hold smart phones and other gear. just look at military shirts from militarys all over the world. they have big chest pockets to make them more fu...

Thanks for the feedback on the pocket sizing Joe. We'll pass it along to our design team. You'll be pleased to see the pocket size on our Work Wear shirts is larger.

Lightweight warmth with button down style

My wife bought me this shirt because I forgot to pack my El Cap fleece quarter zip, while on a bicycle tour on the central California Coast. So glad she did! It kept me warm in the foggy evenings, with enough room underneath for a long sleeved sun-stretch shirt (XS), and a nano-puff vest (S). I wore it for a week, every evening and through the nigh... Read Moret. The material kept shedding for a few days and then it stopped. One more quality Patagonia product!

Super warm

I went with a large instead of my usual XL & Im glad I did. The large fits perfectly. The buttons feel a little bit iffy, hopefully they hold up without any problems. I would definitely buy this again.

Best Layer Ever!

Absolutely my favorite layer for cool weather. Fits great, looks great and is super comfortable. This is simply a must have and is great for many activities. Only feedback is I wish the elbows were double-layered. Other than that, this is an amazing, durable and comfortable shirt!

June 25, 2021

Soft and the right light layer

I bought one of these at a small retail shop and loved the fit, snap buttons and other features of this shirt that made me seek out another color of this versatile light layer.

Almost the best a fleece shirt can get

This snap fleece shirt is nearly perfect. It dresses any post-surf session up, keeps you warm after a day on the river, and has enough room to layer underneath. The only drawback is the nylon cuffs which rub and arent as soft as the fleece.

Fleece snap up nice for layering

30April2021: My other Patagonia fleece button ups were purchased in 2011 and had been thread bare for years. So happy Patagonia finally saw fit to make something comparable. Im a field biologist and use this shirt for running around the mtns. Need something quick drying and something to keep me warm when the clothing is soaked through but not too h... Read Moreeavy for periodic heavy exertion. If its not too windy, I can use this garment in the 30-60° F range.

Very nice shirt.

Love the shirt. The first one I got the snaps fell out. Returned it no problems. Great customer service. I think the should make the snap backings a little bigger to avoid this issue.

March 27, 2021

Baggy for a medium

I own several Patagonia shackets, jackets, and fleeces of various flavors - all are size Mediums and fit great - except this one. This shirt is noticeably bigger. Sleeve lengths are the same, but I measured and the girth is 4" wider than all the other Patagonia medium products I own. I love the shirt but had to return it for fit. Needs to be s...

Hey there, thanks for the review on our Long-Sleeved Early Rise Snap Fishing Shirt! This shirt has a relaxed fit, it could be the shirts and jackets you're comparing it to have a slim or regular fit which is why you're seeing that difference in width. If you'd prefer a slim or regular fit, check out these [shirt options](

Great Over Shirt. Wear it for Anything.

Had my eye on this shirt for a while. It has a great look that works for both casual and semi-dressed up settings. I am fairly thin (5' 11", 140lb) so I purchased both a S and XS. The XS fit almost perfect, while the S was a bit too baggy for me. There's likely enough room to wear a light long sleeve layer in the XS for me. It'... Read Mores amazing how warm the shirt is for how light it wears. It regulates temperature very well. I can wear it indoors and not feel overly hot, and step outside into 50ish degree weather and still feel comfortable. I love it so much I'll likely get a second one in another color. Can't go wrong!

Super versatile

Got this shirt earlier this year and I can’t tell you how pleased I am with it! Because this is designed as a shirt, it works as a sweater, over shirt, jacket, and short bathrobe. It’s by far the most versatile piece I have! I am impressed by the range of this piece. Thanks to Liz and the Vancouver gang for putting it out there!

November 16, 2020

Very comfortable and functional

The fit is great and its a great to be used under shell or for hanging around house. Kind of wish it had hand pockets on the sides.

November 7, 2020

Runs big but is comfortable

I wish I had sized down but I really like this shirt jacket. Its perfect for cooler temps.

September 14, 2020

Like the nylon reinforced cuffs

I bought this piece for fly fishing. Nice pocket size and just the right weight worn over a T shirt for a cool evening on the river in late May or June. It also works well as a light mid layer under a rain jacket. My only complaint; I would prefer the shirt be a bit longer in the torso area. Not a deal breaker though. Good quality Patagonia product... Read More.

Best Shirt Ever

This might be one of my favorite pieces of clothing I have ever owned! This shirt is super warm and comfortable. It is great for a cold morning on the river or running errands around town during the winter. I need to order one in each color!

July 15, 2020


Finally a light fleece with roomy chest pockets without hip pockets, used for a year when hiking, look is stylish, performance is perfect!

June 19, 2020

Greatness ~

Really Happy with this shirt. I am physically active and for the most part wear my clothing snug. This shirt is (for me) just a bit loose in the mid/side. I am 510 155lbs. It did not stop me from purchasing all three colors. I am able to wear these shirts 8 months out of the year comfortably. Very soft and very quick to dry. Solid quality ~

Oh snap, the snaps suck!

Been wearing the brand 20-25 years, love the stuff because the quality and construction is usually bar none; I usually get 15-20 years out of a synthetic based garment, with severe duty... But these snaps suck, some of which are are not backed in the soft stretchy fleece and pull through the fleece, and others simply break because they are plastic.... Read More Maybe this garment is an out-liar in my brand experience, I hope so. I lost my first snap this past week, then another a few days later, and now I am writing this....I still love the shirt but the snaps suck and buttons arent the solve either. Back the new style snaps (maybe metal?) like the lapping front is done, that would be a good solve. I had visions of portaging in the opening? BWCAW with it but the black fly would carry me off through the growing gaps. Oh, snap!...its not even a year old... M from MN

awesome shirt but go easy on the buttons

If you take off your shirts like a reasonable person, this piece is awesome. I'm 5'11 160lbs and usually fall between medium and large in PTG shirts and jackets. As far as PTG shirts go, this one has the length of a long, but the sleeve length and girth of medium. Room for a light layer underneath, but still easy to put a shell or another... Read More layer of insulation over it. I've worn it with just a t-shirt underneath, but it'll get clammy if the weather is warm enough to justify that combo. The orientation of the zip pocket is perfect for a phone, but depending on what size boxes you're using in the vertical pockets, they may interfere with wader straps. By no means a deal breaker for me. It's a little bit bulky in a pack or suitcase, but only because so many other kinds of insulation pack up so small these days. Onto the other thing.... If you enjoy snap shirts because you can pull them off quickly with one hand a la Frank Drebin in Naked Gun, go easy of them. The stitching that holds the snaps into the fleece itself lends itself to pulling out easily. At first, you can kind of wedge it back in, but it'll fall out in the wash and eventually you'll have to make do without full buttoning capabilities. If anybody from Patagonia sees this, is there an easy repair option? I couldn't find one on the wornwear page that addresses this type to plastic snap button. Awesome shirt, and due to quarantine, it's seeing a lot of time around the firepit and the busted buttons aren't detracting from my enjoyment!

Favorite Patagonia Item

This shirt is a re-boot of my favorite Patagonia item of all time, the Micro D Snap Shirt. The one I purchased in 2006 is still going strong, but bought this as a backup and I now wear them both with high frequency. Love it! (FWIW, for my height/weight the sizing widget recommended an XL, but the L is perfect for me)

Dave H.

Shirt is extremely warm and comfortable. Fit is a bit large, but it's great for layering. Plenty of pockets for fly boxes, glasses, etc. Will be buying one in another color.

I like it

Keeps me toasty

Chest pockets are out of control

The chest pockets do not lay flat. They kind of flay out and make this look pretty odd or like a military uniform from a developing country.

December 20, 2019

Great overshirt to a base

Great overshirt to a base layer. Or over a shirt or sweater. Size was right as it is just a bit over sized. And great that the shirt has its snaps

December 16, 2019

Love it! Have two of

Love it! Have two of them and wear one everyday. Great layer piece or worn over a light shirt on mild days. My core piece when on the water.

December 3, 2019

Love it!

At this point I haven't fished in the shirt but from wearing it casually it's obvious that it will be great for cool weather fishing. Very pleased with the weight of the fleece and the pockets are plenty adequate for fly boxes. The zip pocket is perfect for glasses.

November 22, 2019

One of the best shirts I own

The fit is perfect, super comfortable, great pockets. Durable as well.

November 15, 2019

Ultimate Comfort

I've worn this shirt on the water fishing in 30 degree weather and was still comfortable. As the day warmed up to around 65 degrees it wasn't too warm to continue wearing it.

November 9, 2019

Thin and light to wear

Thin and light to wear but surprisingly warm for early am chilly weather; an excellent layer

November 7, 2019

Perfect second layer for fly

Perfect second layer for fly fishing our fall salmon/steelhead runs here in Wisconsin. Relaxed fit for easy casting and WARM!!

November 5, 2019

Fall fishing in New Hampshire

The Early Rise Snap Shirt was a great layer for a crisp November Morning fishing for trout. The nylon at end of sleeves is a great feature. Kept sleeve from getting wet when netting and releasing fish

November 3, 2019


Perfect length and profile on this shirt. Ideal for wearing a light layer underneath or for wearing under another insulation piece and a shell

Great Shirt

Awesome shirt super comfortable and stylish!

Comfy everyday shirt to wear

Comfy everyday shirt to wear over tee shirt in fall or spring.
