The shirt is true to size and without a lot of razzed dazzle provides convenient pockets. The material is light weight and washes up nicely. Perfect for travel and everyday wear.

Very nice shirt
I work outdoors, and due to past sun/skin problems, I now always wear long sleeve shirts to protect myself from the sun. The Silver Ridge II shirt feels very light (it doesn't feel like a heavy, wet rag as some shirts do when you sweat in them) and as cool as a long sleeve shirt can be in the hot sun. Columbia doesn't short you on the sleeve length as some brands seem to do. The only small criticism I have is that the shirt is somewhat large in the body (I am 5'11" and weigh 155, a true medium) but I find this with all shirts anymore, many much worse than the Silver Ridge. It does fit well in the shoulders. I guess all mediums nowadays are made for all those Americans with the large size midsection!

Comfortable and Versatile Shirt
The Columbia Silver Ridge shirt is a great shirt for hiking and backpacking - but stylish enough for wearing to work or going out for dinner. I like the flush sewn front pockets. Many shirts of this type - synthetic fabric outdoor shirts - have a box pocket which I do not like for either looks or function. The Silver Ridge shirt has a typical pockets, and also has velcro flaps on each pocket. I normally wear a size Large shirt, but in this shirt needed an XL. It's a very comfortable fabric that's light in weight, and has a very nice feel. Keeps you cool in hot weather, and dries very fast. A winner!

I purchased these for my husband who is 6'2 and 130lbs. He is very broad-shouldered and has trouble finding these types of shirts that fit in the shoulders. These fit great and the sleeves are plenty long enough. The colors are wonderful and go with everything. They are actually quite stylish - the picture doesn't do them justice. He has been wearing them constantly and say they are very comfortable. I bought them for hiking and fishing but he has been wearing them to work also.
