Fabulous Fjord

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: L

This a perfect fall flannel. The thickness is perfect for day and perfect with a jacket at night. My only problem is deciding on what patters to get.

Great Man Gift!

You can't go wrong with this flannel in any color. Fit, fabric, and function play into this piece for a perfect go to flannel. Definitely the best flannel produced by Patagonia for men!

Love this shirt. Washes up soft but not too soft and so far keeps the very sharp colors. I don't dry my shirts all the way so haven't seen noticeable shrinkage. I liked the revival/bear brown a lot and feel like a million bucks in this shirt.

Classic flannel that fits true to size. I wear this everywhere. Stylish, soft, and comfy. Shrinks slightly after first drying.

classic flannel

    Incredibly soft and the perfect weight for casual winter wear. This fits great and washes and dries really well.

    Did you purchase a size M or size L?

    Patagonia shirts are often either too long or too tight so i usually fall between a small and medium. However, this shirt fits great in a small. It runs significantly shorter than other Patagonia shirts. it's a perfect weight that is more versatile than the standard Fjord shirt. Will buy in more colors.

    Lightweight Fjord

    If you know the regular Patagonia Fjord flannel, you know how amazing it is. They continued with their great ideas by making this lightweight version for when you don't want something quite so heavy, but you still want to look good. In comes the Lightweight Fjord, and it too is a winner. The material is nice- soft, not itchy, and versatile for a range of temps. It looks nice too, an easy go-to for a casual shirt or you can dress it up. The one pocket design is also pretty fly.
    As far as fit goes, it does run true to size- it does seem a little bit shorter in the torso than the regular Fjord in the same size, but it's not too short by any means.

      I bought this shirt for my partner for Christmas, and he loves it. He has very long arms, so mediums are usually too short in the arms, and larges are too big in the torso, but this shirt fits him great. It's got nice colors, and is well-made too.

      I love it

      Not just for men!

      Believe it or not, I bought this flannel for myself! I love the fjord flannel line, but the women's don't come in a lightweight flannel option and sometimes the regular one is just a bit much! So I got a men's small and it's been great! It's a more relaxed fit obviously, rather than tailored or fitted like the women's, and a bit oversized for me, which I actually really like. It's the perfect weight for any temperature really, other than the dead of summer; Whereas I would overheat in the regular fjord pretty quickly unless it was cold outside. Love it!

      Bought this flannel not too long ago. I like the way it fits very much. I mainly use it as a base layer when snowboarding but I’ve worn it when going out a few times. Definitely recommend it if you’re looking for a new flannel shirt. Quality product.

      Great flannel

      Perfect flannel for most days, or as an extra layer when it’s colder. Fits well and not too heavy.

      Unanswered Question

      Do these shirts ship to Alberta, Canada? I tried checking out my cart and it said one of these items doesn't ship to my country. Thanks.

      Good looking flannel. Quality, fit and finish seem awesome. Looking forward to many years of comfortable service.

      Perfect Flannel

      I wish I could get one of these flannels in every color. They are so comfy and the fit is spot on! Patagonia really knocked it out of the park with their organic cotton on this shirt, it's so soft to the skin and has a great warmth level to it. I'd definitely recommend this flannel to everyone.

      Nice shirt

      The shirt fits true to size and is perfect for high 40 degree weather and higher.

      Great material just not for me

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

      A great mid weight flannel that looks great on a hike or in the office. The materials were soft and appeared durable. I am of that perfect between size in most every Patagonia item, medium is too small and large is just too big. The medium was perfect in every way aside from being two inches too short on my 6'1" frame, Perfect fit through the chest and shoulders though. The large was just way too big. I am not at all upset about this though as I exchanged it for the fjord flannel and the medium was spot on perfect. Some day I will either gain weight to fill out a large or shrink enough to fit the medium.

      I run into the same issue with most brands now days. I used to always fit a large, but the cut seems to have gotten more boxy in recent years. I'm 6'2 195-200lbs and athletic. I find that the Fjord in a medium fits me great, I just had the bottom hemmed to a shirt tail cut rather than the straight cut (moms are great). I'm at least a 35inch arm, probably more of a 36, and the Fjord fits me great in that regard. But this lightweight Fjord again fits into that category where I have to sacrifice something. A large is too boxy, but a medium is too short. Guess I'll stick with the custom Fjord.

      If you're a fan of the OG Fjord, you won't be disappointed with the Fjord Lightweight. Winter transitioning to spring is when I find myself wearing this flannel on the daily. It's soft, comfortable, cut well with a relaxed fit, and one of my favorite tops for spring and fall days. Only gripe is I feel the sleeves are a tad long. Though, I roll them up once and don't have an issue.

      Fit and aesthetic is textbook Patagonia, which is to say quite nice, especially for those of us on the positive end of the ape index. I was a little worried it would be too lightweight, but the material is just right for daily wear in milder conditions.

      Very disappointed.

        Fit like a burlap sack and as comfortable. Feels very cheaply made and poor quality of materials. Would highly recommend try on before buying. If you are slender it will hang like a gown off of you. I expect much higher quality from Patagonia. Will impact my desire to buy other items without trying on first.
