Product Description

The hard-working Columbia Bahama II men's long-sleeve shirt keeps you comfortable long after you've brought in your limit. Designed specifically for the needs of anglers, the shirt is made of a lightweight, durable nylon fabric that dries fast should you get splashed. The mesh-lined cape vents at the back shoulder, meanwhile, enhance the airflow, helping keep you cool in the hottest conditions. Finally, the shirt offers built-in Omni-Shade UV protection that keeps the sun off your back until you're ready to come inside. Other features include two big chest pockets that offer plenty of room for small gear, button tabs for rolling up and securing the long sleeves, and your choice of several sizes and colors.

The Bahama II long-sleeve shirt includes mesh-lined cape vents at the shoulder to enhance the airflow.
About Omni-Shade Technology
Columbia's Omni-Shade clothing protects you from damaging UV radiation by blocking the majority of the sun's harmful rays, letting you stay out longer on sunny days. Unlike SPF (Sun Protection Factor)--which is a measure of sunburn reduction from sunblock and protects you from UVA rays--Columbia's Omni-Shade products are far more versatile, combining a tight-weave construction, UV reflectors, and UV absorbing technology. These features not only prevent sunburns and long-term skin damage, but they also protect the wearer from UVB rays in addition to UVA rays. UVB rays are much more harmful than UVA, and are present even on cloudy days. Plus, Omni-Shade doesn't wear off. Instead, your safety increases as the Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) increases. Several layers of Omni-Shade protection are available: UPF 15, UPF 30, UPF 40, and UPF 50-plus. It's like sunscreen, but you don't have to reapply. All Omni-Shade fabric carries the Skin Cancer Foundation's Seal of Recommendation, which is given to sun-protective fabrics that have a minimum UPF of 30.


  • Construction: 100-percent nylon Backcountry cloth

About Columbia Sportswear
Founded in 1938, Columbia Sportswear Company has grown from a small family-owned hat distributor to one of the world's largest outerwear brands and the leading seller of skiwear in the United States. Columbia's extensive product line includes a wide variety of outerwear, sportswear, rugged footwear and accessories. Columbia specializes in developing innovative products that are functional yet stylish and offer great value. Eighty-year-old matriarch Gert Boyle, Chairman of the Board, and her son, Tim Boyle, President and CEO, lead the company.

Columbia's history starts with Gert's parents, Paul and Marie Lamfrom, when they fled Germany in 1937. They bought a small hat distributorship in Portland, Oregon, and named it Columbia Hat Company, after the river bordering the city. Soon frustrated by poor deliveries from suppliers, the Lamfroms decided to start manufacturing products themselves. In 1948, Gert married college sweetheart Neal Boyle, who joined the family business and later took the helm of the growing company. When Neal suddenly died of a heart attack in 1970, Gert enlisted help from Tim, then a college senior. After that it wasn't long before business really started to take off. Columbia was one of the first companies to make jackets from waterproof/breathable fabric. They introduced the breakthrough technology called the Columbia Interchange System, in which a shell and liner combine for multiple wearing options. In the early 1980s, then 60 year-old Gert began her role as "Mother Boyle" in Columbia's successful and popular advertising campaign.

The company went public in 1998 and moved into a new era as a world leader in the active outdoor apparel industry. Today, Columbia Sportswear employs more than 1,800 people around the world and distributes and sells products in more than 50 countries and to more than 12,000 retailers internationally.

This shirt is well made, comfortable and looks good.
The shirt is great in warm weather, the sleeves are great for when sunny out and the venting through the back keeps you cool.

The major problem I have with this particular item are the fly box pockets attached to the front of each breast pocket. When seen in the pictures and when pressed sitting in your closet this shirt looks great. But when in use, particularly when you're sweaty or when you open your breast pocket and close the Velcro strip just a little tighter than normal, the flying box pockets will open up like gaping mouths. This is got to be one of the funniest shirts I've ever worn. It looks so stupid walking around with a mouth gaping over each breast pocket that my wife sewed them shut. The other drawback, and this is general to this type of clothing, is that the clothing is generally see through. The light blue is not bad, but the white, you may as well be naked. Other than these two odd complaints the shirt performs outstandingly well! The roll up sleeves are particularly useful as the material is quite soft and cannot hold a rolled cuff on its own. It does have an awkward synthetic feeling when you first put it on. But that feeling goes away very quickly. As for durability, the material is quite thin and does not at all give one the feeling that it could take any sort of heavy abrasion. In a recent bicycling accident I cracked my ribs hitting the concrete and sliding for some distance. While acquiring substantial road rash on exposed skin the material only had a few small nicks in it. I did this in the white shirt and thought the ground in dirt would've basically ruined the shirt for any kind of dressy/casual environment. To my amazement the shirt came completely clean with nothing more than throwing it in the wash. I have the XXXLT sizes and it is a true cut! The pocket fix is simple enough that I would not hesitate to buy this shirt again particularly if I can get a good sale.
Good luck!

Color Name: SailSize Name: X-Large Verified Purchase
As soon as I unpacked this shirt I was disappointed. The button holes are the worst I have ever seen. Many of the holes have stray threads which catch on the button and unravel when I unbuttoned the shirt. I have not had a chance to wear it yet but this is not an indication of a well made shirt. I also received another shirt (Sportif) also from Amazon and it appears to be much better made and the shirts are very similar in design. I will not be ordering any other products from Columbia.

Update: Today I went to a local retail store and looked at their Columbia shirts. I looked at a lot of shirts and never found one loose thread. It makes me wonder if the shirt I received from this company is a 2nd, or worse yet counterfeit. All the shirts in the store looked to be of fine quality so I bought two more.

Color Name: SageSize Name: X-Large Verified Purchase
I bought these for my husband. He works in a Florida State Park and he is outside all day in the sun. These shirts are lightweight, airy, and the sage color does not show dirt as quickly as the lighter colors. The only negative is that the buttons are not sewn on good enough, and you will probably have to sew one or two back on.

> Arguably, the shirts are more like "very light windbreakers" than long-sleeve dress shirts. Not waterproof, but dries very quickly.
> The thin tight-weave nylon fabric stops UV, but also blocks airflow and doesn't "wick".
> The thin material and the ventilation flap in back help keep you cool in the sun.
> The deep closable placket pockets are very handy.
> The smaller pockets (in front of the big products) are very handy for cell phones, MP3 players, or small radios. For example Kaito KA200 Pocket AM/FM Radio, Black
> The shirt has special straps to hold the sleeves rolled up, when desired.
> The dense weave is "silky" (almost slick), and comfortable, albeit a high-cotton (such as in Bonehead style shirts) blend is more comfortable.

COMPARED TO BONEHEAD SHIRT (I purchased and wear both)
> The Bonehead Shirt from the same manufacture is VERY similar, almost identical except for the fabric. Columbia Men's Bonehead Long Sleeve Shirt.
> Both have 4 major placket pockets, albeit in a slightly different arrangement.
> Both have skinny "button down" collars, except that the Bonehead uses velcro patches rather than buttons.
> The Bahama II is all nylon; the Bonehead is all cotton, as a result:
> The Bonehead is much more comfortable, especially in hot humid conditions.
> The Bahama II offers the maximum UV protection.

I live in the desert south west along the Rocky Mountain range, so skin cancer is a real problem here. I've been out in the sun for 8-10 hour's a day for 10 day's straight - & at over 7,000 ft - fly fishing, & the "Omni-Shade" protection this shirt provides has been nothing less than outstanding! I'm fair skinned, so I can't afford to get burnt.

I was out fishing last week in a high mountain stream, stumbled & took a fall right into a mud hole! The whole right side of me was covered in mud. So I took off my shirt, rinsed it in the stream, put it back on, and in just a few minutes the shirt was completely dry and there were no visible stains to speak of! (Lucky for me 'cause I would have never heard the end of it from my buddies when I got back to camp ;)

IMHO... If your looking for a durable yet breathable fishing shirt with optimum UV protection, I can't recommend the Columbia Bahama II Shirt enough! In fact, I think I'm gonna order me another one in a different color on I get done writing this review!

Tight Lines...
