Thank you for your feedback.
Fit as expected, however I thought this was pale purple, not blue.
I struggle to find clothes for him that both look good and fit well.
The velcro pockets are perfect for secure carry of your cell phone, sunglasses, or whatever.

Product Description

Designed to meet the needs of active anglers, this cool, protective shirt is constructed of soft cotton poplin, with fly box pockets and a rod holder loop at the left chest.

The fish might be smart, but Columbia's popular Bonehead men's short-sleeve fishing shirt is smarter. Constructed of cotton poplin that's garment washed for lived-in comfort, the shirt offers such features as hook-and-loop closed fly box pockets at the chest, a tool holder and utility loop, and a rod holder loop at the left chest that frees up your hands to work with lines and lures. The mesh-lined cape vents at the back shoulder, meanwhile, are designed to keep you cool and comfortable. Finally, the shirt includes a hook-and-loop at the collar tip, which lets you turn the collar up to keep the sun off your neck. Machine wash warm and tumble dry low for easy care.

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.

    Columbia has yet to let me down in the quality of their clothes, durability and materials used. This shirt, is no exception. The only problem with this shirt, and it's a big one, is that the size is waaayyyy off. I would venture to say 2 sizes off. I ordered a large, as I am a large in every other brand including other Columbia product lines, but this shirt was so big I could fully loaded ruck sack underneath it!!

    Seriously, it is at least one size larger than labeled but I would venture to say it might even be 2 sizes too large. I'm going to give it to my dad who typically wears a XXL and see if it fits him. Bottom line, do not order this shirt online unless you have confirmed your size in a store first.

    I bought 3 of them. Great quality as we're used to when buying any Columbia stuff. But however, bigger than they seem to be. (S is like M, and so on)

    I have been buying these shirts for years. They are great for fishing or any outdoor wear. The back is vented and there are plenty of pockets for keeping things like cell phones or keys secure, especially in a boating environment. I'd give it 10 stars if I could.

    Size: SmallColor: Commando Verified Purchase
    I'm a big fan of Columbia "breather-back" shirts. In the hot Texas summers these things are no joke- they really do keep you cool. For no good reason, I only had one of these for many years and I only used it for fishing. This past summer I snapped out of that nonsense and started buying more and wearing them all over. Here's my take on the different shirts, hope this helps you. (for reference I am 5'8", 175#, 32" waist and usually wear either an athletic-cut large shirt or a medium if it's cut normally...yes, I live in size hell)

    Bonehead: This shirt is 100% cotton and is very tough. Makes a great work shirt. It wrinkles easily and has the traditional PFG assortment of pockets on the front. It is the quintessential PFG shirt. It does not fly under the radar but it looks fine for what it is. I have several of these and if you can get them less than $15 that's a great deal. Given the pros of the other shirts, however, I must say this style is my least favorite (but still a great shirt, and my go-to work shirt). I always get a small in this style and it's still roomy at that. It's cut VERY large.

    Bahama II: Much like the Bonehead in terms of pockets, but it's made of a synthetic fabric. Breathes better and wrinkles less but can still wrinkle. The "Super Bahama" version has a print rather than solid colors. Heavier material than the Tamiami. I wear a small in this shirt as well. Not super lightweight but tougher and can be used as a work shirt.

    Tamiami II: This seems like a refinement of the Bonehead and Bahama. Very light cloth, kind of parachute-like. Different pockets. This, to me, is the coolest (temperature-wise) shirt of the bunch. The "Super Tamiami" is the printed version.

    Size: MediumColor: Sage Verified Purchase
    This shirt is GREAT and the size is perfect. I have noticed that a number of the reviews have complained about the sizing of these shirts. I want to point out that Amazon provides a size chart within its description for the Columbia Bahama II shirts that is also applicable for the Bonehead shirts. The size of the shirt is to be based upon the size of one's hips (according to the chart). I have a slender build, but I used the sizing chart when ordering the shirts and they came to me a perfect fit. They fit as well as any of my other shirts.

    Size: MediumColor: Fossil
    I'm writing this as a warning to others on sizes (mens). I bought two of these on the net using the recommended Columbia sizing charts and although they are advertised as a generous/comfort fit, that is 'shrinking the truth' by a fair margin. Unless you like EXTREMELY flappy, loose fitting shirts I'd suggest you drop at least one size down from Columbia's charts. Based on my chest, neck and waist measurements the chart recommended XL but the shirts were so loose I could fit them over a coat and still have room to spare. I'm usually L in fitted shirts so I've reordered these in M!

    Size: MediumColor: Sunset Red Verified Purchase
    Very nice light casual shirt. 100% cotton. Needs ironing for best appearance.Dedicated pocket space for pen. Over priced at msrp ! Purchased two at about 1/2 price shopping Amazon. Sunset red color does not wash out.........can be laundered with whites. Columbia shirts run large. Previous experience dictates to order one size down. I am 6 foot 205 lbs and a medium fits well.

    Size: 3XColor: Fossil Verified Purchase
    I purchased a total of 9 of these shirts (long sleeve as well as short sleeve) for my husband on Amazon because I couldn't find them locally in 3X.
    My review isn't on how well they wear because obviously I'm not wearing them, he is. He wears them daily and he's very pleased with the quality and he says they do keep him cooler in the FL heat during the summer months.

    They wash "like a drop of water", colors haven't faded at all even after 1 year of wearing and washing. They are easy to iron and don't shrink in the dryer, which is a big big big plus! I haven't noticed any seams or buttons showing any signs of wear and tear, which I find very impressive.

    I'm constantly checking to see if they might come out with new colors though. My husband doesn't like the "ice cream" colors (pinks, peach, easter bunny yellow, sky blue) so we're hoping there might be some more darker colors or even jewel tones some time soon.
