The Mountain Hardwear MensCanyonTM Shirt Long Sleeve Shirt is the active outdoorsman's best friend. This button up, long sleeve shirt is moisture wicking quick drying and will protect you from the sun's harmful rays with a UPF 30+ protection rating.
As the title of this review states this is hands down my single favorite outdoors style button down shirt. Not only is it technical enough for activities like hiking, its also nice enough looking to wear out on the town even if your planning on hitting some places that have a nicer dress code.
Its made out of Mountain Hardware's 3.4 oz Desert Cloth which consists of 70% nylon/30% polyester. If your unfamiliar with this cloth its extremely lightweight and comfortable and keeps you cool even in the hottest of weather. The mesh panels under the arms let air easily cycle through the shirt, in fact when big breezes come it can actually feel like you don't have a shirt on at all and this is not an exaggeration. I have yet to find a shirt that has better air circulation. The wicking properties of this shirt are outstanding and it also has a 30 SPF rating to help protect you from the sun.
Of course it would be criminal of me not to mention how great these shirts look. In fact the visual qualities are my my favorite aspect of the shirt and that is saying something considering how great the technical qualities are. In other words this shirt has it all. Again this shirt can easily be worn even in places that have somewhat higher dress codes. It just has a really super clean look and can in fact be mistaken for a dress shirt from a distance. Its only upon closer inspection that the front pockets give away its technical nature.
I also have to mention what outstanding colors Mountain Hardware has chosen for this line of shirts. A lot of the outdoor clothing companies like to use really bright, bold and unusual colors on a lot of their products. Patagonia is a perfect example. As much as I love Patagonia's clothing, many times I am turned off by their color choices.Read more ›

I bought the MH Canyon shirt for a vacation 3 months ago. It was great for traveling - light, compact, and looked good after shaking out and hanging. I've taken it on several trips since and even wear it around town. It dries quickly and breathes well. No issues with quality, buttons, or stitching. I will definitely buy a second one for fall camping.

Very cool shirt on hot days. It is a very light material and doesn't look too technical. I got compliments on it when I was at a gas station. The only thing that is weird about this shirt is its kinda short to tuck in and if I were to order a size up than the shirt would be too baggy. The length of the shirt is my only complaint, although the sleeve lengths are fine.
