Great looking shirt. Gives a sporty appearance, as if just back from 18 holes, while being comfortable enough to hang out with friends. I liked this shirt so much, I picked up another one.

I purchased my first Utilizer polo last year & was amazed at the comfortable fit. The 100% polyester shirt is a refreshing change from the all cotton polo's that most of us have been used to wearing in the past. The Omni-Wick technology disperses sweat away from the body for quick evaporation, keeping you comfortable during physical activity. I initally bought 3 shirts & they have quickly became my favorites. I recently bought the Blue Jay & it has to be my favorite color. My next one will be the Amazon.

This shirt is seriously oversized. It is cut VERY wide and not at all fitted, resulting in a very boxy, sloppy look. If you are at all slimmer or athletically built, I strongly suggest ordering one size down to get a proper fit. The material is quite thin and light and would probably be very comfortable and cooling in hot weather (no personal experience because I returned my shirt due to the poor fit). I recommend staying away from white because it is a bit transparent due to the thinness and would be totally revealing if caught in the rain.
I do not recommend this product.

Good shirt with great fabric. It breaths well and really does keep you cooler when you are outside. The only downfall that I can really say for this shirt is that it tends to run one size to large and of course doesn't shrink in the wash, so my advice is to get a size smaller than you usually do. Otherwise Awesome shirt. Now if only they came in more colors.
I would recommend this product.

I have three of these shirts for my job. They are great colors, look professional and are the most comfortable collared shirts I own. Unfortunately the material seems to fray easily, say where a seatbelt will rub against it on a long trip or where a golf bag will hang from the shoulder. These frays turn to runs that make the shirt unwearable for business meetings. I've lost two shirts to these issues that i cant wear to meetings. But at least I'm pretty well dressed for mowing grass. Other than that I love these shirts.

I bought a shirt before going on vacation and absolutely loved it...the feel, the look. Other people commented, "Oh, hey, I like that shirt". I ordered another one online when I returned home. It's $50 a shirt with shipping but I think it's worth it. I'll space purchasing more out but I'm going to have one of every color eventually. My favorite shirt hands down.
I would recommend this product.

This is a great product! I bought it before traveling down to Texas this month. Even in wearing a regular cotton t-shirt underneath, it was still comfortable when the temps went into the 90's! Great job, Columbia! This wasn't my first product from you, and it won't be the last!
I would recommend this product.

I wear these shirts to work, and throughtout the day they keep me cool and dry. They are professional enough to wear with any pair of khakis. Everyone compliments me on the various colors, and how well the shirts fit. I liked the old, but I think I like they new utilizer polo even more.
I would recommend this product.

I ordered two of these shirts in a size large and while I like them, one shirt was much smaller than the other. Both shirts are made in Indonesia, and both are labeled L/G. How can there be such a deviation between shirt sizes? I had to send one back because the fit was too tight, while the other fit comfortably. Don't know what else to say on this one....??? I'd recommend the shirt, but would caveat by saying pick your size wisely, as the shirts seem to run small.
I would recommend this product.

I have several of these polos and love them. They fit great and look great too! I am a bigger guy and they fit me well.
True story about how wonderful they are:
I was attending an annual meeting social event outside with food and beer. Hundreds of people everywhere. I had a dark beer in a cheap cup. The beer ended up spilling all over the white shirt. I didn't know what I would do. It was a white shirt with a dark beer. Not good. Then I remembered it was Columbia. I excused myself, walked over to an area with no one in it. Poured some water on the spill. Rinsed it off, ringed the shirt out and put it back on. No one was any more the wiser. The shirt still looked great and dried in minutes.
I love these shirts!!!
I would recommend this product.

I truly love these polo's. They look great, they're comfortable, and don's seem to need to be ironed.

This is so much better than the traditional cotton polo. The shirt dries quick and stays comfortable despite the southern heat. So far after numerous laundering, the colors are hold well. Would strongly recommend this shirt.

I had originally bought this shirt because, I liked the style and feel. After a month of wearing this shirt I decided that with the all around versatility and it being summer that we would buy over a dozen more because they worked so well during the hot days at keeping you cool. All of the employees really like these shirts and I see us buying more in the future and we look good too.
I would recommend this product.

I have an older Utilizer Polo that has a larger fit than this one, more like the sizing for the Perfect cast Polo, but there wasn't any need to re-order. The material is snag-prone, and it can be difficult to swipe away dry particulate. However, for a cheap synthetic polo that does a decent job of wicking away moisture the price is right.
I would recommend this product.
