I'm not sure why Big & Tall sizes have to be constructed any differently than regular sizes, but the craftsmanship on these shirts is very poor. You can drive a truck through the neck opening while the sleeves are so short they barely reached mid-arm, and I'm 6' tall. I couldn't return them fast enough. Highly disappointing.
I do not recommend this product.

Columbia has changed their sizing measurements. I have always worn an XXL in this t-shirt but now they have changed the sizing of XXL so it is a snugger fit so had to purchase a 3X to get a similar fit. With change to 3X had to pay more as those sizes cost more. Not happy w/ Columbia's sizing changes. Should the sizing measurements remain the same from season to season?
I do not recommend this product.

Mountain Tech iii shirt is a re-design, with a newer lighter fabric. As a previous reviewer stated, it is slightly more clingy--but it remains just as functional. Lighter weight, thus cooler than previous designs.
I would recommend this product.

I looked at this shirt and said alright somebody is in competition with under armor but I see I was wrong. I got this shirt in the next size up from what I wear and thought it would fit great but instead it fit like the wife washed it and dried it and it would fit a 10 year old. Very ,very disappointed. Come on Columbia I know you can do better.
I do not recommend this product.

I bought a shirt just like this a year ago, which fit great, lightweight, and durable. This time, this shirt is a little tight and clings to the body but is lightweight and breathes well.

Performed great in various cold weather conditions

Purchased this shirt in a Tall size prior to a hunting trip and extended outdoor hiking trip to northern Wisconsin in late October and late November duck hunt in north Florida . The Omniwick performed above expectations with the Mountaintech shirt remaining dry while cotton outer layers were moist. It is the first shirt I put on when layering and tall size remains tucked in and fits very well to size. I will buy more of this technology and model.
