There is no top button!
How totally ridiculously cheap. This is a summer shirt which needs to button up to keep the sun off! I cannot believe Patagonia would do something so thoughtless on an otherwise nice shirt.
Hello Julia, we appreciate your feedback on the lack of a top button on the shirt. We are very sorry that the garment design did not meet your expectations. You are welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) it.
Wanted to love it!
I am typically a size 6 and the shirt ran large and long in the small. The fabric was very light, a bit sheer. I was concerned the care would be high maintenance.
Hey Susan, thanks for sharing your thoughts with us on the Lightweight A/C Buttondown Shirt. We're sorry to hear that it ultimately did not end up working out.

Cool and Comfortable
I've been looking at this shirt for some time, but was hesitant since it was not a synthetic. I thought it may be uncomfortable in hot and humid weather. However, I finally bought it and tried it. Wow! It is wonderful! The fabric is so soft and silky and it is very airy. It hardly feels as though you are wearing anything! I love it. I bought t... Read Morehe blue shirt and I now wanted to buy the white one, but alas, Patagonia is not selling the A/C shirt any longer! Patagonia, why have you discontinued to sell such a great feeling and great looking shirt? Please, please bring it back!!!!
Hey Donna! We're so stoked you love this style. We're bringing back more in Spring 2022.
Perfectly cool shirt for sun and mosquito protection.
This shirt is perfect in everyway. Wear it alone or over a tank on a hot day to keep sun and mosquitos off. Perfect for hiking - let's air flow through, but not bugs. PLEASE MAKE A LONG SLEEVE VERSION FOR MEN! My spouse would love one because I keep going on and on about how perfect it is.

Loved the fabric, hit a little big
In some Patagonia shirts, Im a true medium, but with looser styles like this, I must be a small. I loved the fabric, but the medium was too big, so Im returning it/exchanging it for a smaller size.
Thank you for the feedback, Sally! This style is a "relaxed" fit which may prompt you to size down. Please reach out if haven't already returned or exchanged it. We'll be happy to [help](https://help.patagonia.com/s/)!
These shirts do run a bit large - I usually wear a large and sized down to a medium which fit perfectly. I don't find the lack of a top button to cause a problem but understand how others could. Love the fabric and the cut - can wear for casual or to the office but would also wear hiking. The coral color is beautiful. Very Happy.
I wear it for sun protection.
I have 5 of these tops. I originally purchased them for a trip to Egypt. I use them to stay cool and for sun protection. They are super light weight and very comfy. The newer shirts don't have top buttons which is a pity but still wearable. They run very large so I put all of mine in the dryer. They shrunk quite a bit so they fit perfectly.
Great summer shirt
This is the third one I have bought. Great as a shirt over tank top or swim tops or short sleeve dresses.....to dress up. Great to slip on to go to the store or as it cools down in the evening. Works great as a cover-up as it's a bit big on me 5' 108#. They are a little long, but that's always my issue with Patagonia lately.
No top buttons
It's well made but this is a shirt I want for really hot days and I don't want that sun on my chest. It's a lesser shirt in my book, and I won't be buying another.
Hey Susan, thanks for taking the time to write this review. We are so sorry to hear that this missed the mark for you. We passed along your feedback to our Design Team and hope to not disappoint you in the future.
This shirt does what its advertised to do; keep you cool. I bought a close-out color on REIs sale page so the price was right. I miss the top buttons as others have mentioned, requiring me to gob on the sunblock cream which I like to avoid when heading out to town or lunch. Im 54, 118 lbs, and ordered a SM. This shirt is beyond huge on me. Its more... Read More like a beach cover-up in fit. Im not sorry I got it because it does keep me cooler on hot days protecting my arms from the sun. The air flows through it as intended, and although its very lightweight its only slightly see through which does not bother me. Overall a good purchase, however at full price I probably would not buy another one due to lack of top buttons. And also, I recommend sizing down if you are between sizes!
Well made, but see through
Like everything Patagonia makes, the craftsmanship is exceptional. The fabric is see- though , so underwear shows through- but would be perfect over a bathing suit or cami. One thing I wish designers would not do is to leave off the top 2 buttons and buttonholes. I use the top button when hanging shirts on hangars. And not all of us want to show ou... Read Morer chest. Patagonia, please put all the buttons on all the shirts, and let folks decide how many they want unbuttoned. I am returning it.
Very Durable and Soft
I ordered this shirt as a sun shirt for work. I do events so am outside in the sun all day sometimes. I love the soft, breathable fabric of the shirt but what I love most is how durable it is. I've gotten it dirty so many times, washed it about a hundred times, and it still looks white and new. Highly recommend.
I have worn this shirt for 3 years. I wear it around the world, every trip. That it doesn't have a button at the top is a godsend in hot weather. It rolls up, over tanks, bathing suits, with skirts and tied at the waist. It is so cool, comfortable and light weight. I have fellow travels ask who makes it and where can they get it.
No top buttons
You can't se the collar well in the picture. I bought this shirt to protect my skin while outdoors in summer the collar is quite useless (and I think is a cheap cop out). However, like a tool I kept it because these lightweight long sleeve shirts are hard to find, but rarely use it. Won't be buying in another color.
I walk in the sun for work, and ordered this shirt for breezy sun protection. I failed to notice that the shirt lacks the top 2 buttons--the area I most want to protect from the sun and the whole reason I wear button-downs to work. The buttons it does have are small, fat, and difficult to get through the hole. I'm debating keeping the shirt to... Read More add the top 2 buttons and replace the rest, but that is my idea of a bad time. The fit is exactly as roomy and boxy as advertised, and I'd irrationally hoped it'd be a little more feminine. Since the fit is masculine, I considered returning the shirt for a men's, but the men's shirts have no back yoke, and one has polyester in it. If I wasn't struggling to spend store credit on something, I wouldn't consider keeping it.
