I wore this on a pretty rainy day while kayak fishing. It was wet most of the time so I can't comment on how quickly moisture was wicked away. The shirt runs a touch small in the arms but it was pretty comfortable regardless. The ink ran just touch, so I would recommend washing it once before wearing if you are wearing it with light colored bottoms.
I would recommend this product.

This is a great top that looks elegant but will keep you warm and covered. Looks terrific with skinny jeans or leggings! The fabric doesn't restrict movement...great for those Bocce games when the cold fog rolls in!

I purchased this for wearing in the summer during cooler days, but have worn it several times here in Oregon when the weather has been in the 50's and this has turned out to be a great layering piece. My arms are long so I really love the sleeve length and the thumb holes. It works great with a skirt and the cowl neck hoodie is a cute look, but functional for walks on the beach layered under a puff jacket.
I would recommend this product.

I purchased the XL only because the large was not available, and of course, it is truly an extra-large! However, I still find it useful to wear with leggings and boots for a casual look. As reported by another customer, it is on the "thin" side so I feel you need to wear a cami or T-Shirt underneath.
I would recommend this product.

I ordered this in a medium in white & since the fabric's thin, it's a little see-through. I am 5'5" & really like the length of it which covers most of the tush. The slits on the sides give it a little more style & flexibility. I have fairly long arms & the sleeves are the perfect length. The hood is pretty large, but since it's thin you can adjust it as needed to fit your head. This is a perfect light cover-up.
I would recommend this product.

I got the black stripe in extra small (I'm 5'4" and 105 lbs) and love it. I wasn't sure if I'd like the cowl/hood but I think it's super cute. The shirt is fitted in the chest and shoulders but looser at the bottom of the torso and the bottom of the sleeves. Nice flowy shirt to wear over leggings or jeans. I wish it were available in more colors. The only downside is that the fabric could be a bit softer.
I would recommend this product.

I really wanted to like this shirt more. It has a soft fabric, and I really like the soft stripes. The cowl/hoodie is a great design that I'd love to see on another shirt. However, the fit was not desirable, at least for my body type. The shirt fit well through the sleeves and shoulders, but was very body hugging, without much ease, and because it is tunic length, that it hugged every curve from bosom to thigh.
I would recommend this product.

This shirt looks so cute on the website, so I was really surprised with the product I received. I ordered my usual size, Medium, and the shirt is much bigger than other Mediums I've ordered. But my biggest complaint, and maybe it's because I couldn't view a larger image on the website, but I thought the shirt was blue with white stripes, but it's actually bright yellow stripes. Also, in the picture the side slit in the hem looks to be about an inch, on the shirt I received, it's more like 5-6 inches, it's a big split on the sides of the shirt. Overall, it's very comfortable, I just wish for the price, there was a better description/picture of the product.
I do not recommend this product.

I love this shirt. The fabric is great and its a bit roomier than other Columbia shirts. I feel beautiful wearing it.
The only problem is that for broad shouldered women like me, the shoulder seams are a bit narrow - but I find this to be the case for all athletic wear (which is funny, given that women who wear clothes like this are usually strong...)
I would recommend this product.

I have worn this item several times in the last 4 weeks. I think people will get tired of seeing me wear it. SO comfortable. The sleeves are extra long for a bit of hand coverage. The hood is nice and if it's windy, I wear a visor to hold it in place and there's alot of fabric for the hood so there's alot of give. It's so nice to pull the hood around the back of my neck when the sun is blazing. At the beach, the length is perfect - long enough to cover your bum. I'm 5'6". I will order another one for sure!
I would recommend this product.

I bought a large which is what I usually get in Columbia shirts. The fit is a little loose but not baggy. It more skims the curves instead of hugging them. It is very comfy to wear. The cowl and hoodie are unique and really cute. I usually don't like clothing that is mostly polyester, but this shirt feels more like a comfortable cotton blend. I bought one in red coral and one in white. The white is a bit see through. Also I didn't feel like the wicking properties were that much different than any thin fabric shirt. I do enjoy the longs sleeve for sun protection.
Overall I am very please with this shirt. I plan on getting another one.
I would recommend this product.

I am normally a size 6-8 and wear a small or sometimes a medium in most clothing lines. Tried it on in the store and had to order a large to fit my chest. So the sleeves are way, way too long and I have to roll them. And its quite a bit more roomy in the hips than I like so I may have to alter it.
Obviously I thought it was cute enough to go through all that.
I would recommend this product.

Really cute - I can see myself wearing to and from yoga and as a swim coverup. I wear med in all Columbia tops and this one fits very well, very generously. I think it's meant to be a bit loose and comfortable. I got the white with navy stripes - it looks and feels very nautical.
I would recommend this product.
