Everything we make has an impact on people and the planet. So does everything you buy. The clothing industry contributes up to 10% of the pollution driving the climate crisis. And apparel workers are among the lowest paid in the world. That’s why we make high-quality clothes with recycled materials and promote fair and safe labor conditions for workers. There are some things you can do, too.
Buy less . Buy used. Repair what you wear out. Buy from brands that care for their people and the planet. Your purchases are your demands .
Very nice fabric
Organic cotton is hard to find--in fact, cotton t-shirts are hard to find in general. This is a very nice, fine weave with just the right weight and drape. Feels great against the skin. The fish logo is mysterious and gets comments...I suppose I should know what it means but I don't. In any case, I'd buy this again in a heartbeat.
Fan of the flying fish!
I love the symbol on the T-shirt and that the T-shirt is organic cotton and made with conscious mind for ecology and mind and environmental care. It is not the most comfortable T-shirt I own to be quite honest and the fit its a little snug through my shoulders and chest. I seem to be an in between size between your clothing medium and large Sizes p... Read Moreretty much across-the-board. The way I plan to tackle that is to come in to the Ventura store on going and try articles of clothing on so that I understand my best fit. I will continue to buy as much gifts and personal attire from this company which I strongly support. Thank you for being a B corporation. Sincerely Christopher Baker a fan of the flying fish and Patagonia
Most other brands I wear an extra large because of the build of my shoulders and Im left with a baggy mid section of the shirt. I went with the large because of how the organic cotton will conform to my build. The midsection is not baggy and its fitted around my shoulders. The shirt is light with a nice feel. I have been buying more and more of the... Read More organic cotton shirts for this reason. Im 6, 215lbs with 46 shoulders and 33 waist.
Flying Fish Organic
Men’s run small, thin material, great design- good color. Not the same material as your other t shirts are.
Hi Karen, we're sorry to hear you're disappointed with this t-shirt's material. It is made of 100% organic cotton, whereas some of our other t-shirts are made of 100% polyester, 50% recycled cotton with 50% recycled polyester, etc. You can take a look at the item's Materials at the right of the page to see what it's made of. Please don't hesitate to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) it if you were looking to do so and haven't already.
Far from good quality
Very thin material. I felt like it looked worn out after I washed it. There is nothing special about this T shirt for the price point. Although the graphic is cool
We're sorry to hear this item didn't work out for you! Please note that your satisfaction is guaranteed. We will reach out to you privately with further return instructions.
Very Thin Shirts
Really disappointed in these shirts. Very thin material as opposed to the organic cotton I have bought from patagonia in the past. Will not buy more of these in the future and will look elsewhere for better quality shirts.

Sure, minimalism is a "thing" at the moment. I have become one regardless. Ten shirts have a home in my closet and Flying Fish is now one of them. If you are a T shirt and you aspire to join a fanatically curated wardrobe, you should consider this simple garment a role model.
The t-shirt material is too thin and it’s starting to lose its shape after just a couple of washes.
We are very sorry to hear about your T-Shirt. Please know you are always welcome to [send](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html#searchterm=return) items to us that are not performing the way you'd like.
Patagonia tees have changed. Not sure if a different manufacturer or material, but this tee is very thin and stretches out. Don’t love it.
Sorry to hear that the tee wasn't what you were expecting. You are welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) it for a refund at any time.
T-shirts just not the same...
I have to agree with a few reviewers here. The Patagonia t-shirts just aren’t the same. The material is thinner, but here in Hawaii I’m ok with that. But the necks?!?! Why Patagonia, why?!?! Even your employees at the stores don’t like them. Too thin! They curl, stretch out of shape, are just aren’t what your consumers expect from Patagonia.
We're sorry to hear you're disappointed with this shirt. Please feel free to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) it and let us know if you have any questions.
Thinner, lighter, love it.
I don't normally comment on things, but I just had to voice a dissenting opinion - I own 'older' T's and this shirt and am buying a second one simply because I LiKE the thinner material - it breathes so much better compared to the older version of the T's and feels like it moves better also. I can't say anything about ... Read Morethe durability as I have only had it a few months, but so far there's no issue. I would call it slim fit-ish compared to other graphic T's I've owned - I really wish it were slightly narrower and longer for the shoulder width (I'm 5'10", 153lbs, usually buy size large given climbing shoulders)
downgraded materials cheapen product
as others have said already, Patagonia has switched to a thinner, ostensibly cheaper organic cotton that just doesn’t stand up like previous versions of this tee. they’re much thinner and less durable and not a good value any longer. here’s to hoping Patagonia comes to its senses and brings back their old fabric... as they are, these do not live up...

Thank Goodness I Own Dozens of Older Patagonia T-Shirts
Hello, The above reviews are right on. The 4 ounce they are using now is utterly pathetic compared to what was used even a few years ago. Guessing to offset the higher cost of the cotton, it was decided to use a whole lot less of it. That said, organic cotton has been used for some time. Probably also to justify the no doubt cheaper material costs ... Read Morefor being earth friendly to boot! Regardless, what were once my favorite t-shirts by a country mile are no longer. I own a number of the current ones and the point made above about them losing their shape is sadly correct as well. If nothing else, Patagonia should have made really clear just how different the new shirts are. Also, while I own at least a dozen slim fit t-shirts from the past, I do agree that these seem to fit worse. I sadly doubt Patagonia will revert back to the older stock so I highly urge any and all to go to their favorite outdoor stores to look for new (old) stock. The decent ones have a different screen print on the inside compared to the current.
Bad quality - Not what it used to be
The only T Shirts I bought in the past years were Patagonia because of their quality. I was sure I was buying a good quality T shirt which would last years and survive many cleaning. But it seems this time is done. What are those T shirt ? I ordered three different T shirts and all of them are so thin and light, that they already loose their shape... Read More after a few days. They seem very cheap. I am very disappointed. I don't recommend to anyone.
New fabric SUCKS
The world has just stopped on it's axis! For years and years, Patagonia has been using a tshirt fabric stock, not sure what it WAS called, that's been the gold standard the world over by which all other tshirts are (harshly) judged. I have a drawer full of them going back for years. No more. They've switched to a new fabric stock c... Read Morealled "4 oz ringspun jersey" that is as flimsy/chintzy/low quality/see thru as any tshirt fabric that you'll find. Go to the cheapest discount store on the bad side of town and look in the sale rack at tshirt brands you've never heard of and any of them will seem like higher quality than "4 oz ringspun jersey". PATAGONIA, PLEASE GO BACK TO THE TSHIRT FABRIC YOU'VE USED FOR ALL THESE YEARS, I BEG YOU. This is a massive downgrade and disappointment for what I'm sure are MANY loyal Patagonia shoppers.
