I should have taken off more in my rating considering a large is the size of a tent. I down sized to a medium and very happy with these Skiff Guide III shirts. For someone who does not need or want more pockets than you ever use and much prefers a chest pack when wading the flats, these shirts are perfect.
I would recommend this product.

This is honestly the perfect shirt for anyone who spends a lot of time on the water and in the sun. The sun protection and breathability of this shirt are superior to any shirt on the market. People always ask how I can stand to wear a long sleeve shirt in 95 degree heat and I tell them they have to buy one of these to find out. The sweat is wicked off your skin and instantly cooled, leaving you feeling dry and cool in the toughest of environments.
If this shirt gets wet, it is dry within an hour. The only thing to look out for is that in my experience, most people need to order a size smaller than the T-Shirt size that they typically wear. I wear a large shirt but find that a medium Skiff Guide III is the perfect fit.
Try one out for yourself and you'll understand why these shirts are so highly rated.
I would recommend this product.

I wish I had 20 of these, they are appropriate for layering for work or for exercise. They fit perfect, and easy to launder.
I give it my highest recommendation!

Being a fishing guide in Florida means you spend a lot of long days in the hot sun. This shirt is one of the comfortable products that I have ever used. It has excellent sun protection yet it feels like you are not even wearing a shirt! It does run a little large but it doesn't change the performance.
I would recommend this product.

This is a very nice long sleeve performance shirt. It fits a little large/baggy compared to other brands I own, but is made from excellent materials. I love the purchase.

I work on the water 240 days a year. I wear these shirts all summer and I live in Texas which means that runs from May through October. They are they are the best shirt ever made!
They keep me cool and the sun off my arms. They dry extremely quickly and the quality lasts. Don't look around for other shirts, just buy this one and be happy.
I would recommend this product.

I'm 5'8" and 160 pounds. Wide broad shoulder. I wear a large T-shirt. I know Columbia gear usually runs a little large so I bought a Small. It is HUGE on me. Sleeves come past my hand by about 8 inches, and shirt tail is past my crotch. This is several Columbia shirts now that I have gotten a small in that have been WAY WAY too big. I ended up giving the shirt to my dad who is 6'2" 225, with broad shoulders and it fit him perfectly.
ITS A SMALL. He said he hasn't worn a small in anything since he was in elementary school. The shirt looked very nice, and comfortable. It's a shame a guy my size can't get a shirt from Columbia to fit. They don't make a XS in the shirt, and I'm not sure if it would fit if they did.
Overall, good shirt. TERRIBLE sizing. Truly awful. If you're around my size, don't waste the money on it like I did.
I do not recommend this product.

I usually wear a large t-shirt but thought I'd order a medium here for tighter fit. The shirt sleeves run several inches past my hands and they are extremely baggy. Not impressed for this money.

I wear this shirt everyday as a full time charter Capt. in SW FL and particularly like it best because its not the shear fabric. I wear a base layer under in it in the winter and its very cool by itself in the heat of summer.

I like to wear these over a t-shirt for extra warmth. Things I like about this top are:
1. The fabric is breathable, relatively wrinkle-resistant, and holds up well under multiple wearings over an under shirt.
2. The tops are relatively light-weight and pack very well for travel or hiking.
3. The fit is roomy and comfortable, not too tight on a person of average build.
4. The wrist cuffs are not tight.
I hope Columbia continues to offer these without too many "improvements."
I would recommend this product.

In a kayak, you always have on a PFD. You don't need a shirt with a bunch of pockets under a PFD, but you do need one that will keep you cool, protect you from the sun, not restrict movement, and dry quickly. These shirts do it all, and I wouldn't think of spending a day on the water without one.
I would recommend this product.

I love this shirt for those warm/hot sunny days. Forget the idea of wearing short sleeves on the water to stay cool. This shirt provides shade like comfort to keep you cooler and prevent nasty skin cancers that occur from the harsh sun exposure. If you spend any time on the water you need to try this shirt.
I would recommend this product.
