It fits true to size to slightly large to size. Smalls are usually tighter on me.
I wear a S-M on shirts and jackets. I wanted this to fit snugly, but comfortably. It fits like a t-shirt, not a baselayer, which is very nice - not too tight, not too loose.
I received it and now I'm buying another one or two.
For the price, on sale, I can get THREE of these for ONE Patagonia capilene 4 baselayer. It's not as warm, but you can't argue with 3 shirts.
I would recommend this product.

Bought one...then two more, one for me and one for my son. Great indoors and out. Indoors it keeps me form overheating while providing good cover for cool days. Then to go outdoors just put on a parka and hit the sub-zero temps. I expect it to be great in the spring for golf, fishing, etc.
I would recommend this product.

I am a size Large on everything I wear. The shirt was very long in the sleeves to the point that I couldn't wear it without it looking strange. Don't know if this was a unique situation because I love Columbia gear. Also, from the website picture I was expecting a different thickness on the shirt....just my opinion.
I do not recommend this product.

For the cold winters in Colorado layering is a must. I find this shirt to be comfortable to wear as a base layer, and it really looks good under a thermal layer shirt or fleece. The nice thing is when I come in the house, I can strip off the outer layers, and the base Cool Creek looks great.
I would recommend this product.

the only issue I have with this shirt is the color is darker than advertised. I was looking for a shirt that had more red in it.
I would recommend this product.
