Whether I'm wearing one of these shirts to teach Phys. Ed. in the gym, coach, hike, or casually around town, I'm always comfortable in these shirts...I have 7 colors! Favorite shirts I own.
I would recommend this product.

I bought this shirt in April for use in hiking and backpacking. The thin fabric did not hold up at all and was a disappointment for the normally good quality Columbia clothing. I used the shirt on several day hikes over the summer, and then on a 2 day backpack trip last week. The fabric had wear holes on the back where it contacted the soft nylon pack, and both sleeves had wear holes on their seams and ends. The shirt wasn't abused or laundered incorrectly to damage the fabric. I have done a lot of hiking and backpacking and never seen anything like this on any shirt. I just returned the shirt, so we'll see what happens.
I do not recommend this product.

I have been buying Mountain Tech shirts for 6+ years and wear these on daily basis. Latest purchase of 10 shirts is not the same quality I have come to expect over the years from Columbia. I suggest Columbia re-evaluate their decisions to make small cut costing changes on their product considering the shirts are still offered at a relatively high price to competing T-Shirts. May reconsider next purchase from Columbia.

Fits loosely which is rare in an athletic shirt like this. Order a size up as it is larger than your regular size. Also a bit thicker than something like UA, so can be worn for more than just workouts.
I would recommend this product.

I have worn this type of Columbia t-shirt for some years. The 3 I just received feel like a thinner cloth, maybe less durable. Has the type of fabric changed?
In general these shirts seem to hold up well about 3 years, which is great. I am wondering if the shirts in my recent order will do as well
I would recommend this product.

This is a great shirt. They travel well in the suitcase and wear even better. I bought 4 of them and wore one most every day hiking around the southwest and and Pacific northwest while on a 3 week vacation.

These are great looking shirt in the store. I bought
one of each color.
Put them in the real world and you have a snagged
, ugly shirt in no time.
I have similar shirts by other brands that have
no snags after 2 years of use.
very disappointed
I do not recommend this product.

Columbia does not disappoint. Again, fits right out of the (recycled, yeah!) box. Comfort all day. Cool and dry. Wicks perspiration away. Nice combo in the summer and hot inside work.

This shirt was an athelitic fit so a bit tight but did it's job well in terms of drying quickly and keeping me comfortable while outside.

The first variation of this shirt (titanium) was the best. This version is almost as good. It fits the way a performance t-shirt should. The Large fits fine for someone 5'10 & 175 lbs. I prefer the performance fit to the "regular" fit. I find the regular fit larges to be too big and the mediums too small. As long as Columbia makes this shirt I will buy them. I have some in storage so I have extras when they are no longer manufactured.

Shirt is nice and lightweight. Use it all the time by itself or underneath other shirts. I was a little surprised by the color as it wasn't accurately represented above (Yellow Curry).

I purchased two of these shirts at the same time to wear as a hot weather wicking shirt. The shirt wicks as is expected, however it will develop an odor rather quickly. The shirts also snag fairly easy and within a few trips out with the family had snags in both shirts. The shirt material makes the snags show very easily. I eventually regulated both the shirts to my gym shirts, and they have served in that role very well.
I do not recommend this product.

Wish you still carried the titanium t-shirts as they ran true to size, lasted a long time and resisted snags. The Mountain tech shirts run small and have a hand that snags and pills.
