To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I have work these shirts for sun protection in very hot weather for years. In all that time I have never found any other shirt to be their equal. They travel well, can be washed and dried very quickly, don't need ironing, and maintain their shape and colour.
This is my first Columbia purchase and I am very happy with it. It fits well and is very comfortable. I expect that even though the sleeves are long, it will feel cool in warmer weather. Good that you can roll the sleeves up if you want. Will be buying more. I have now washed it and hung to dry. Was happy that there were few wrinkles, so will be good for travelling.
I really like the style and the fact that you can dress it up or down. BUT….I’m not sure why they put a Velcro pocket “closure” over the left breast….there’s no pocket. It’s totally unnecessary and cheapens the look of the shirt. Columbia could be a little more subtle with their logo as they are in many of their products
This is a great lightweight "sport shirt", and great for travelling. The sizing fits somewhat smaller than other brands, but not any smaller than the usual Columbia sizing. I have several Columbia shirts in a size L, when I usually take medium in most everything else. I am a petite size 8 on top. This shirt is long but not overly so. The medium just barely buttoned across the chest, leaving inadequate room for movement, so I exchanged it for the large, which seems perfect for my purposes. Also too bad that the pocket linings are white, but not a deal breaker. It washes well, and easily. Great shirt.
