Words cannot describe how disappointed I was not only by this shirt, but my entire order from Columbia. Of the five items (four shirts and one pair of shorts) I ordered specifically in time for a trip to Phoenix, only two were wearable.
This shirt does not run "slightly small", it runs almost very small. I thought Columbia was selling to Outdoorsmen and athletes? Why are these shirts so small across the shoulders and chest?
I do not recommend this product.

I am very particular when it comes to my polos; it has to fit properly and the buttons have to lay in a certain way. It seems as though not all mediums are created equal; most mediums are actually large. This shirt fits perfectly, meaning that the sleeve seam sits on the shoulder, and it is structured so it does not look like I am wearing a tent. It is also very comfortable and light. I like the shirt so much, that I plan on buying every color.
I would recommend this product.

This is an excellent product that has an athletic fit. Most products of this nature always seem to run large; even for a men's small. This product is the perfect fit. It is neither too loose or too tight. The color is excellent. I have received many compliments on this item.
I would recommend this product.

Glad that I was able to get a pass to visit the ES and try on this shirt prior to ordering; I usually wear an XL in just about everything, sometimes a L depending on the brand. I noticed that the XL in this shirt runs small for my liking, So reluctantly I tried on the XXL and it was a great fit. Maybe someone in the factory got the sizing mixed up :)
The shirt moves well, breathes well with a great feel and look.
I ended up buying 2 in the store and 1 on-line.
I would recommend this product.

This was one of 4 shirts in my order. The other three were the Skiff III T-shirts and the fit was so different and had to be returned. Washes great without creases. Ideal for the traveller.

At age 59, I prefer to NOT wear a cotton t-shirt underneath my casual clothing. This shirt fits the bill, the wicking material absorbs moisture, and keeps me dry. I had skin cancer removed from my back in January, and am intrigued by the SPF attributes that Columbia integrates into its shirt design. Great colors, comfortable in warm weather. I am 6'0", 200 lb. Large fits me well.
I would recommend this product.

I'm currently wearing the white Utilizer. I'm very impressed with the way it fits. One of the best shirts I've ever owned in that regard. Can wear it tucked or untucked just fine. My only gripe might be that Columbia's logo - a fine logo - is not inconspicuous. The white shirt appears to have a white or even gray logo, but it's actually black. It really sticks out. It's a good shirt for someone who doesn't mind advertising for Columbia. On the other hand, the quality is so good, I don't mind bragging.
I would recommend this product.

These are great shirts, and I liked them so much I bought a few in different colors. This is a nice casual shirt that goes with jeans or khakis so it can be worn on casual Fridays, relaxing around the house, or out on the trail. Made from a super comfy fabric, that's sure to please. I hope Columbia continues to make this product line for a long time!

This is a very versatile shirt. I can wear it to our grandson's sporting events and also when my wife and I go out to a casual dinner. I am 6' 3" and I like my shirts to fit a little lose. I find that a 2XL meets my needs.
I would recomend this shirt in most of the colors avaliable.

This line of shirts are extremely soft, comfortable, and quick-drying. The mesh-like pattern is prominent, but not so much as to take away from the style or quality of the shirt. The only negative of this line of shirts is that, due to the open weave of the material, small pulls will form relatively quickly but not so much as to render the shirt unwearable.
I would recommend this product.

This Polo style is THE BEST. I have several of these. My only suggestion is: make it a 3-button polo versus two. Three button shirts are slightly more professional looking and in the winter time wearing an undershirt underneath them for a little more warmth works better with 3-buttons (getting them off and on when layering).
Another request would be: add some more color selection to these NEW UTILIZER style: maybe a few more earth tone colors.
I wear polos to work almost everyday. This style would work great with company logos or uniforms.
I would recommend this product.
