I so wanted to love this item, but the neckline was too high &felt like it was choking me. The idea of having a lightweight hoodie with spf protection would have been perfect for stand-up paddling. My husband has ~20 different Columbia spf shirts - from polo style, to both long & short sleeve, & wears them everyday. Please design a crew neck shirt (long and short sleeve) that is a slim fit for woman. The other fit problem was the arm pit area. I ordered both a small and a medium (which fit better for my 5'6", 120 lb frame, but was too tight for being able to move my arms freely. I do love the skiff guide fabric - the texture is great.
I do not recommend this product.

The color in the picture is rather opaque compared to the quasi-neon shirt I received in the mail. The material is good, but it fits a bit too tight around the forearms. I have long arms and I'm not very muscular and I never thought that'd be possible and yet...
I haven't worn this shirt outside yet, but I'm sure I'll enjoy it. I'll update this review if I don't.
I would recommend this product.

I purchased this shirt in red, size large. I normally wear a medium shirt. The shirt is very comfortable. I like that the sleeves come down slightly over the back of your hand, and the neck keeps the sun from beating down on your shoulders without being confining.
I would recommend this product.

I'm a distance day hiker, and through backpacker so I'm often out in blazing, Northern California sun, but when near the coastal range, fog rolls in, so this lightweight, long-sleeved, hooded top is an excellent alternative to back of the neck, exposed arm sunburn. Add a vest and you're warm enough for a variety of summer climates. It does run a little small, by current vanity sizing, and wish there were thumbholes (I retro-fitted with button holes), to keep the backs of my hands covered. Otherwise, I started my summer with one, and bought 2 more.
Quality is 4 because I found it can snag, do not wash with other garments that may have velcro pocket closures.
I would recommend this product.

I love the versatility of this hoodie. It kept me cool on a really hot day. It's also really easy to pack if you need a pullover that won't take up much room. Next time I may buy one size up, cause its a big snug, but ok.
I would recommend this product.

I have over 30 Columbia shirts and I'm sorry to say that this is not one of my favorites. Unfortunately, it doesn't have the "true" fit and quality that I usually get from Columbia clothing. It has very little stretch and the sleeves run a bit short. However, all that said, it will still work nicely as a "run-around" shirt, so I would still recommend it. Just be aware if you are tall like me, it may not fit as well as other shirts.
I would recommend this product.
