Sizing: The Silver Ridge series is more of a "slim" fit. I put "slim" in quotes because compared to J Crew or Banana Republic, this is a relaxed fit shirt. However, within the Columbia world, this is a slim fit shirt. Their PFG series shirts are much larger, but the Silver Ridge shirt fits great for the outdoors. No one wants a tight fitting shirt when you're in the wild and mosquitoes can bite right through it.
Color: The color is a dark blue, not quite navy, about two shades lighter. I like it because it's not a bold blue (which can scare away some animals) and it's not a dark navy blue (which attracts mosquitoes).
Material: The material is nice. It uses a "rip stop" fabric that feels great on your skin. It's extremely fast drying, and relatively light weight. This shirt dried faster than my Nike Dri Fits and Under Armor coldback shirts.
Breatheability: This is where the shirt really excels. There are side vents that allows the cool air to come in and makes the shirt extremely breatheable. There are also buttons on the sleeves that allow you to convert it into a short sleeve shirt. Overall, very good breatheability, very nice to have when you are sweating from humid 100 degree weather.
SPF: This shirt has great SPF protection. I didn't use any sunscreen in mid day sun. I ended up getting a nice hand tan, but the rest of my arms did not tan.
The fit you want on this item is very much dependent on where you'll be wearing it. If you're going to be active (hiking, all of that), you really REALLY want to order one size up from your normal size. The fit on this, at least for me, is pretty much as expected. But like the pants, this shirt will fit a little tight if you're actually doing those adventurous things that Columbia makes you look like you do. If, on the other hand, you're just looking for a nice, flattering shirt...your normal size will probably be your best bet.
The Fossil color is very khaki-like. It's a bit darker in tone than the picture suggests. I found it to be a great match to the gravel color.
This design is very intriguing. There are hidden underarm vents to help keep things cook. The button for the sleeve tab is hidden, so it looks nice when the sleeves are unrolled. I particularly like the extra fold in the back collar, so when you put up the collar to protect your neck you have an extra little tab that increases coverage. As for wear...it breathes. It's cool. On a day with a 104 degree heat index, I didn't feel at all stifled or sticky with this shirt on.
It's a good shirt. I like it a lot.
They didn't seem to wick away the sweat all that well, but I feel like they performed above my expectations given that the climate was so ridiculously hot and humid. Using the loops and buttons for rolling up the sleeves was a chore to get looking right, but was possible if you gave it a few tries. I have since purchased two more and wouldn't hesitate to do so again.
*Very attractive design
*UPF 50+ sun protection
*Can wear as long-sleeve or short-sleeve (sleeves can be rolled up and buttoned into place above elbow)
*Size runs one size too large (if you normally wear a Large shirt, order the Medium)
*Material not quite as nice as Outdoor Research
For a recent trip, I purchased 2 Columbia shirts, and my son purchased 2 comparable shirts from Outdoor Research. I liked my shirts, but was jealous of his. I rate the Columbia shirts 4 stars, but the Outdoor Research shirts were 5 stars. The key differences were the fit (Outdoor Research shirts run true-to-size) and the material (the Outdoor Research shirts seemed to use a higher quality, nicer looking material). But the Columbia shirts were less expensive than the Outdoor Research shirts, so I am not unhappy with my purchase. I expect to get many years of use from my Columbia shirts.
I got mine for a week in Costa Rica where is was 90+ degrees and humid. They were not "super" comfortable, but they're acceptable, and when I washed them, they came out with a lot of static cling for some reason. I think I would have preferred a light cotton tee-shirt over these, but I would not have gotten the SPF protection, which works as described. They have a double collar, which can be turned up, and then turned up again to cover your whole neck. They were great while white-water rafting and dried relatively quickly. I would not say that it can be considered as a option for upscale dining, as other have said, unless you get it in black, which I did. You can get away with it in black, and in the places where you want a shirt like this, "upscale" dining is not the Four Seasons anyway.
Lightweight, folds up easily, and doesn't make you look "touristy." I spent a week in hot climates and packed only three of these in my carry-on for the entire time. Wash up in the sink and it'll be dry in the morning.
