My old quilted, flannel shirt was getting so thread bare that my wife threw it out. The lining on this shirt makes it nice and toasty. The fit is true to size. Would have liked a lighter color to be more visible when outside but the hickory plaid is fine.
I would recommend this product.

I bought one of these last year and it kept me comfortable and warm on many occasions - from sitting on our deck to relaxing by the campfire. I LOVE IT!
I decided to get another one in another color.
I would recommend this product.

I got my first Windward shirt 2 or 3 years ago and now have 4. It's a great cover for cool/cold temperatures and is extremely comfortable

I gave this to my husband for Christmas, and he likes it very much. He wears it around the drafty house and it keeps him warm. The blue plaid is a great color too.

This shirt seems to be perfect for wearing around the house in the winter. I can also throw on this shirt unbuttoned like a jacket when I head outside. It keeps you warmer than a standard flannel type shirt.
I would recommend this product.

This shirt is just not as warm and comfortable as my orignal Windward shirt. It's acceptable and was purchased at a good price. But, I would prefer the quality of this shirt was as good as the original.
I do not recommend this product.

I have not used this short much in temps below 30-35, but it seems to work really well. It is warm and a bonus is that it seems to be lighter than I expected. Should work great for a nice fall jacket/shirt or great for layering in the dead of winter.
6'3" 210lbs I got the XL and it fits perfect.
I would recommend this product.

I was surprised when I received this shirt to find how thick (and furry) the lining is, but it is very comfortable and provides an excellent amount of warmth without a lot of bulk. This shirt can easily be worn as an outer shirt or layered over another shirt for added warmth.
I would recommend this product.

I love this shirt, it is so warm that I wish there were more cold days so i could wear it more often. It is very comfortable and looks great because of the nice flannel look. Also, its not very thick either which makes the fact that it is so warm very surprising. This shirt is perfect for outdoor work, hiking, or just laying around the house.
I would recommend this product.

The lining on these flannels feels like you have Chinchillas hugging you, couldn't be any more comfortable. However, the outside looks like just a normal, good looking flannel. I wear this bad boy with just a T-shirt underneath on 30-40 degree days, keeps me all sorts of toasty. Would totally recommend this product to anyone! Especially as present ideas.. noone gets happier than an article of clothing they can look good in, in public.. or just sit around in all day watching Scrubs.
I would recommend this product.

I ordered this shirt for my son at his request. It is a great fit and very true to size. He loves the color and how warm it is and is wearing it as a jacket to school and out. (He is a high school senior). I have washed it once and it came out just like new! Highly recommend this great quality shirt.

This shirt is heavy enough to all but cancel out the fall cold (mid forty's today) fitted enough that it doesn't feel bulky at all. The shirt layers well and feels very well constructed. I am considering buying a few more.

I'm wearing it as I write this review, as a matter of fact. It's a GREAT fall shirt. Heavy, warm but not super bulky. It's great to wear just over a t-shirt when you want to block the fall chill. Its warm and soft and whatever the fuzzy material is inside along the chest area, its the softest material ever.
Plus it just looks cool. Gives you that "Yeah, I'm a logger" sort of look, too. :)
I'm 5'9, 200lbs and the XL works great on me.
I would recommend this product.

I should have added context
Posted January 15, 2013
I should have added some addt'l context.
My chest runs 47-48" on a 5'9" frame, so in most cases purchasing a Large is too snug. XL fits well at the shoulders, but it does make the rest fit more like a dress... this isn't a shirt that you tuck into your pants. It's more like a jacket than a shirt.

Amazing shirt, just too big
Posted December 5, 2012
I am 5'10" and ordered the XL. I am swimming in it. The chest is much too big. I will be getting it in a large. This shirt is a lined shirt with some seriously soft material inside everywhere but the sleeves. It keeps the bulk down. Amazing. Must have shirt for cool weather!
