I bought this shirt for a trip we will be taking next February. I wanted one more shirt with the bug repellant. It is the end of the season and I had trouble finding the right sizes at the travel site stores. I wish I had come here first. The price was RIGHT! The color was what I wanted, the fit was perfect. I could not be more pleased. I would recommend checking here FIRST before other places.

I wish this came in sizes for fat old ladies - LOL! I bought this in a men's 2x to get it to fit me. When I remember to wear it, it works great! At least it DOES come in one "girl" kind of color. Mosquitoes, etc., like to feast on me - and this works.

Wore this on my favorite trout stream in the Driftless Area of Wisconsin. Swarms of mosquitoes engulfed the area after the rain. Needed a net hat for my head, but bugs left me alone. A couple of Brookies that fought me lived to swim another day!

Almost any bugs seem to find me and consider me their banquet! So far so good with this shirt
I also like that it is light weight and has adjustable sleeves. I am 70, short, fat. While the men's 2x is a bit large, it is great to go over a tank or short sleeves. Wish this came in a couple more "lady" colors, or that the ladies' ones came in bigger sizes.

after reading the fine print on the tags on these shirts, decided to return, sounds like they'll only last a certain # of laundering cycles. and what's with the open vents ?? are they really designed that way? how will those keep bugs out ??? I usually like Columbia products, but these had to go back.

This shirt is exactly what I was looking for. I travel across the country by car and need a shirt that is cool and comfortable in the hot humid climates in the Midwest and South in late Summer. It is also nice to have the bug repelling feature as some areas can be intense when the bugs are in session. The fit is perfect and I enjoy having the tie ups on the sleeves so I can wear long or short sleeve depending on the weather and the need. I have had good experience with Columbia shirts and already own several. This one should serve me well and wear as well as the others.

can't wait till summer! The shirt is super lightweight and breezy should be fantastic on a hot summer day out on the boat. size correctly for extra large and well made, should be maintenance-free / wrinkle free due to the fabric. too bad it's still snowing here.
