Both a good shirt and over-shirt...
I'm about 6 ft, maybe a little taller and a little bit on the heavier size (~205-210) most winters. I also use this heavier weight flannel as an over-shirt or shirt jacket, usually over a lighter flannel in the Pacific Northwest winters. A large size would fit over a T-shirt but would not work well as an over-shirt for my body size. An X-large... Read More is a little large over just a T-shirt but is better when used as a shirt jacket as well. One great thing about Patagonia over the years is their consistent sizing on most things, I wish they'd apply that rule to all things; they're starting to slip on this policy. But with flannels and Pima cotton shirts, they've been consistent and a large fits me over a T-shirt; an X-large if I'm going to layer over multiple shirts.
My husbands favorite
My husband loves this shirt. It weighty enough to stay warm on sunny cool days but not bulky. He wears it casual by itself or with a jacket on colder days. It is super soft and very well made. I have washed it many times (it is worn nonstop!) and it still looks new. Wonderful if you can get it on sale but I understand its price because of the quali... Read Morety.
Great flannel, soft and super warm. I'm 5'10" and 155lbs and ordered it in the small since I have a couple better sweaters in small too. Unfortunately sleeves on this flannel shrunk a bit after drying it, still fits okay otherwise, but wish it hadn't shrunk. Pretty boxy shape so the Med would've been too big for me.
True Love, but Cant Tuck it in
Quality thick organic fabric Sturdy Design Pleasant/old fashion buttons Chest Pockets The shirt is so comfortable, I wear one everyday, even in the summer. My only suggestion would be to add a cut that is super long - maybe lower quantity/ in stock - so it can be tucked, and stay tucked. I would certainly purchase a few more.
Hole in elbow after light wear of two winter seasons... I don't have a particularly sharp elbow and flannels from other companies have lasted me much longer. While extremely comfortable, it's short-lived. I expect more out of shirts, especially from Patagonia.
Thank you for the review. There are a multitude of reasons why your shirt could have developed holes and while there is potential that it could happen to any shirt, what sets us apart is our [Ironclad Guarantee](https://help.patagonia.com/s/article/Ironclad-Guarantee) and our offer of free repairs. If you decide you are ultimately unhappy with the performance of the Fjord, you're welcome to send it back in for credit, or you can extend it's life by sending it in for repair. The choice is yours!
The Greatest Winter shirt
This is my 4th Fjord Flannel so Ive been sold on them for a long time. How can material that warm/thick be so supple? Just feels good. Since the pandemic, Ive spent so much time in the house or going for walks. In Chicago. It's been cold and crappy. Each time I put on this shirt, its a mood-lifter. Cant say enough good about it.
Soft, Warm & Comfortable
Love this shirt, review title says it all! Fits perfect which is tough for my size. I grabbed a XXL and the sleeve length and overall fit is great. I have a very long arm length (83" reach), 6'5" and 245lb lean muscular build. It's difficult for me to find a shirt with long sleeves that actually end on my hand rather than hang... Read More on my wrists so that was awesome. Torso fit was also perfect and what I'd expect from a flannel. Ends a few inches or so below the belt and isn't baggy or tent-like around the torso (that's always a deal breaker for me when XXL actually means "wide") , it's just the right balance between fitted and loose. I haven't purchased or worn a flannel in many years due to weird fitting and variations in sizes between brands but after wearing this I want 3 more Fjord's to live in through the winter!
My favorite shirt that Patagonia makes
I own 8 of these shirts in various solids and patterns and they are my go to in the shoulder seasons and as a layer during winter in the Pacific Northwest, whether it's a day in the office, doing construction, hiking, or field work.

Read Moreve a higher cut at the hips but I prefer the straight cut since I don't tuck in my shirts. Bring back the natural dye line with more colors please. Those are awesome!
Like the pattern, sizing leaves something to be desired
Patagonia needs to make a medium tall in their shirts. Medium is a better fit for my build but you have to deal with it being just slightly too short in the sleeves especially. I have this shirt in camo too and really weighed whether I could be happy in a medium but ultimately went large. Please fit for tall and skinny builds!
Thank you for the feedback on our Men's Long-Sleeved Fjord Flannel Shirt. The sizes that we offer are usually dictated by the market, if enough people ask for it, that's usually when we look into our options so thank you for expressing this concern. Until then, we are always happy to provide measurements or alternatives that come with longer sleeve options. We have a similar shirt called the [Men's Farrier's Shirt](https://www.patagonia.com/product/mens-farriers-work-shirt/53320.html?dwvar_53320_color=SNBL&cgid=root) that has the same feel but also slightly longer sleeves, check it out!
Warm & Wearable
As someone who wears clothes until they disintegrate I look for sturdy well made clothes. This flannel checks all my boxes. Extremely well made. Great fit. Comfortable. Warm. Designed to function well and look good. My favorite wool button down has been on its way out for quite some time. This flannel more than took its place. Thank you.
I own five of these shirts and love them. They are one of very few that actually fit me properly.

This was a gift for someone usually wearing a size Large, but after reading the reviews and comparing it to the model, I decided to order the medium.

Replacing and recycling my traditional old school 2015 business shirts in favor of these which will probably last a lifetime. Thanks Patagonia for making comfortable quality gear. #Mufti

Great casual flannel
IMHO Patagonia outer wear has dropped in quality some recently. However their clothing is really great!

I got this for cool Southern California winter mornings when a sweatshirt is a bit too much but a t-shirt is too little. It's the perfect weight for this use and very soft.

Soft and warm, nice pattern too
I bought this shirt for my husband, brothers and sons as their Christmas gifts. They all love it for its warmth, softness especially after wearing and washing. Also the color combination is great, fits their individual character, lots of choices though, I picked 6.
Lives up to the hype. Good for big folks.
Love the fjords. I'm kind of a fat guy so when I buy shirts for maximum mobility, usually I have to buy stuff that's baggy, with overly long sleeves and excess around the waste. Not with these.

Super Soft and Warm
I really like these Patagonia flannel shirts. I have about 8 more similar Patagonia flannel winter weight shirts. First of all, any flannel shirt I buy must be soft to the touch and these are.

Mostly great, ever shrinking sleeve length
For a number of years now, I've been buying one or two of these shirts.

The only problem I've had, and it has been very consistent through the years, is that the sleeve... Read More length gets a bit shorter in every wash. I'm wearing one now and about to head into the shop. This particular shirt is about three years old, and the cuff is now about three inches from my wrist joint.

I'd love it it this type of predictable shrinkage would be designed into the patterning.
Cozy basic flannel shirt
I bought this shirt when I found myself underdressed on a trip to Halifax in February. It's a thick flannel, very warm and soft, a classic men's cut, quality stitching. Rather oversized on me (petite woman), but I like wearing it as a light jacket or just around the house with sweatpants.
Quintessential flannel shirt
A really great flannel shirt - the material is soft and comforting, the weight is reminiscent of the old school flannel shirts that my dad wore, and the cut is perfect for my 5'-11" / 165 frame (I ordered a medium).

Perfect for tweener weather now and colder weather later
Bought this for my husband after he nearly wore out his nano for cooler evenings on the lake. This is the prefect weight for a little additional cozy warmth in summer and will be great for fall and winter as base layer. Fits well, flannel is substantial, soft.
Smaller than anticipated
I usually order my clothes in XS mens and they usually fit- for some reason the sleeves are really short. I mean from top of shoulder seam to end of sleeve I measured 22 inches. When I checked the fit guide under the product it details that XS sleeves should expect to fit about 32 inches. Im bummed. Tasmania teal was dope.

I cant get enough
This is my third Fjord flannel. Luxuriously soft. Warm. Comfortable. Just right weight. My only issue is this: right out of the package, it is a bit big, mostly in the length.

I got this shirt last week and have worn it just about every other day. It has enough weight for the Pa winter nights and perfect for sitting in hot buildings comfortably. Definitely gonna buy more of these shirts! 5’10 and 175/180 lbs Athletic build and a medium fits perfectly.
I am finally leaving a review on these since I now own 3. They are super comfortable and I think they have a few unique color patterns that I get complimented on. For fit I wanted to describe my experience. I originally bought a medium and it fit pretty perfect but after I washed it (cold water delicate cycle. No heat dryer for 5 min and hang to d... Read Morery) it shrunk pretty good at the sleeves. I swapped for a large and it has been fine after washing. I am 6'4 and 185 lbs so fairly slender. The large fits well with sleeves but it is pretty long on the torso. I still really like them and like I said earlier I own 3 but they definitely look a little silly popping out from the bottom of my jacket. That is the explanation for kinda large. The quality seems top notch. The original 2 I got for myself Dec 2018 still look like brand new even though they get worn regularly. They are fairly warm. I went ATV riding in October in Northern Pennsylvania and a sweatshirt plus this underneath was more than enough for a mid 50 degree ride. Price is a little high but if they continue to hold up like they have it seems like it will have been worth the price.

Size is relative, but not baggy.
Reading the reviews its hard to tell if this is too baggy or slim. Pat's fit chart put it on the extreme end and call it "relaxed". A 15 year old or a hipster walking in Brooklyn might agree. But for older persons, or for those who want to be able to lift their arms with out the buttons popping, this seems on the slim side (especiall... Read Morey since they call it relaxed fit). A "slim fit" , even a "regular fit" version would be nonfunctional. I'm fairly trim and the medium was hugging my chest and abdomen. (6 ft, 160). The large seemed perfect for me and my activity; maybe 1 inch long in sleeves (felt like a medium-large; not as large as some brands). So all of this is relative to what you like, or what Pat calls the "fit". But it is not baggy like some say. Some variation is expected- sadly manufactured in China. So, if your a hipster in Oakland wearing pants you can barely sit in, this may not be the shirt for you. For the rest of us, "rock" on.
Best feel, best comfort... really hard to beat these. My collection is up to 7 different colors/styles of these shirts, with a few duplicate purchases to store in the archive and bust out years down the road. "Regular fit" runs a bit large, so one might want to size down depending on preferences.
Nice thick soft flannel
I love this shirt. I got it as a gift and will probably buy another one. I'm 5'7", 155 lbs, and the small fits well. Just right in the shoulders, the sleeves are slightly long. The hem is too long to look right untucked so I'm going to have it shortened by a couple of inches. If not for that I'd give it 5 stars.
Best Flannel On the Market
I stopped in at the Patagonia store in Portland on a whim and walked away with one of these. I ended up wearing it later that day and fell in love with it, so I decided to buy a second at the Patagonia store in Pike Place. Extremely warm, super comfortable, and the fit is perfect for me.

Best flannel shirt I've had
The straight hem and very comfortable flannel won me over to this shirt - I now have four. I never tuck it in, so the straight hem is great and looks sharper than the cut of most other flannel shirts. The one thing that keeps me from giving 5 stars is that the hem is a bit long. I am a little over 5'10" and wear a medium, which fits great...

So Soft and So Warm
I'm not really a fan of plaid so I went with the Forge grey and I'm glad that I did because it is so easy to match with nearly everything. I am 5'9" and slightly round at the belly. The medium fits slightly snug on me but the large is a bit to much. Definitely getting the insulated Fjord Flannel shortly here.
I’ve had some of these shirts from at least the early nineties and they’re still soft and look great. I have a lot of fleece but all too often it’s only flannel that will will warm you up after a cold day on the water. I wear the shirt like a sweater over a T-shirt and it’s perfect for relaxing in.

Sizing (sleeves) seems to have changed
I love the fjord and own several from past seasons. Ordered a large again of the new crop, and the sleeves were a fair bit shorter than my old ones. Returned to my local store who mentioned that the fit had been changed? As a caveat, I do have longer arms, so maybe the new fit is better for the majority.

Not Another Flannel Shirt
Southern California winters aren't exactly brutal but I live in the hills and was looking for a comfy shirt that would take the edge off the chill when the thermostat is turned down, or while working outside. This shirt has hit the mark perfectly. It's fairly thick while remaining flexible enough to lounge on the couch in; has a straight ... Read Morehem that makes it look a bit smarter untucked; and the range of patterns are different from other manufacturers whilst still being eye-bending enough to fit the flannel tradition. I'm 5' 6'' and 160 lbs so I bought both a small and a medium, based on the other reviews that says it runs large, and ended up keeping the medium because I found that the fit across the chest mattered most for comfort; I'm a 39. I found the size was pretty true so the arms are on the long side; probably 34" or so. Also the fit is "classic" so it is (too) roomy at the waist. But that means it goes over a T-shirt or other shirt easily.
Do I hold the Gunniess Book World Record for owning the most number of these shirts? With twelve, and one more on order, probably not.

Perfect for fall and winter. Super Cozy.
If you're wondering about size I bought two then washed and dried one, and then measured the difference between the two. I got mediums after trying them on, which is a little big on me, but small was too small and large was huge. It's a relaxed cut for sure as they say, and so it's meant to be like that. After washing in warm water... Read More and drying on low, the shirt shrank about 3/4" in length and 3/4" in the sleeve length as well. The one I washed now fits perfectly, whereas it was a bit too large and long in the sleeves before. It's much more comfortable to wear the larger one around the house, but the shrunk one would be better for wearing out if you don't want to look quite so cozy. Based on this experiment, the one I didn't wash I'm going to only wash cold and hang dry, to keep it larger and use more like a jacket-shirt. So far, love these shirts. Picked them up in San Jose and they were perfect for the autumn chilly nights.
Doesn’t fit like it used to
I bought a fjord flannel in 2012 and wear it constantly and it’s still in great shape. Just bought a new one in an xsmall and unfortunately it’s way bigger than my old one. I took the tags off and washed hoping It would shrink which it did a little bit but not enough. Now I’m stuck with this flannel that I probably won’t wear. Still a great shirt, ...

Just received my shirt. Looks like very nice material and would be good to wear in winter months. However a very odd fit I’ve never seen before. The body seems ok with a somewhat relaxed fit but the arms are pretty tight so not comfortable and looks weird. It is going back as it’s simply not wearable like that.
It's a wearable hug.
I first came upon this beauty in a small outdoor store in Flagstaff, and couldn't be leave how soft it was.

really good,but lighter weight than last year
I'm a big fan of these fjord shirts. I ordered three more this season. And I was surprised to find that Patagonia has changed to a slightly lighter weight cotton than last year? I still love the shirt,but it would have been nice to know up front they had made the change.

I usually wear a large (6'2",200lbs,athletic build),but the medium fits me perfectly.
I've Gotten Lots of Compliments
There are a lot of flannel options out there and it is nearly required uniform in the Pacific Northwest.

Love picking up these shirts on sale. If this one is like the other one already in the closet,it should provide good warmth and hold up to use as a layer or just by itself with a vest.

I bought this shirt for my husband because he wanted a heavier weight flannel than most of his other flannel shirts. This shirt is perfect. It's thicker than most flannel and SUPER soft. He is a medium and it's a bit big on him,but not excessively large. He wears it all the time when it is cold,I would highly recommend!
Great all around shirt.
I have 2 of these shirts. They are great for staying warm around a campfire and you can wear them comfortably on a casual night meeting friends for beers. I wore one of these shirts nearly every night after a day of rafting on a 23 day Grand Canyon trip. I bought a second because I liked it so much!
When I first opened the package and felt the lush softness of this shirt,I said,"Wow!" My wife,unprompted,said the same thing. If it comes close to the legendary Patagonia durability,which seems likely,given the material and construction,it will be the best flannel shirt I've ever had.
Amazing product! Great buy
I absolutely love the feeling of the flannel,it's softness is heaven on earth! It is great in cold weather and doesn't get too hot like other furry flannels. The material greatly reflects the high quality of the shirt and I know it will last me a lifetime. It may be pricey but on sale it's an offer that cannot be passed up.
Hands down,best flannel ever!
I have worn this flannel almost every day since I got it and it is by far the softest one I have ever owned. Its hard to even make time to wash it because I never want to take it off.
