Bought this for my husband in anticipation of Fall safari. We already have another brand of bug shirt, but they are blue, not really what you want when you are tracking gorillas! Bought Fossil. It's going to be fine. If they had that in women's, I'd get one too!

Columbia shirts are great for many uses. Need to be careful on the sizing as different Columbia products seem to be sized differently. ie, I typically wear large, but sometimes have to get medium, sometimes xlarge. Bizarre, but true. Otherwise, great shirts!

This appears to be a very nice shirt. I ordered a medium, which normally fits (I take a 38 jacket or a 15/33 shirt). However, this shirt hung like a tent on me and I returned it without using it. I would describe the medium more accurately as a large.

Originally purchased a white Large (it was the only size/color available) and found it WAY big. After some product had been returned, I purchased a Medium edamame (tan) and have been much happier with the fit, although I feel even it runs a bit large. I kept the larger one as it is still good for lounging around camp or fishing, but way too big for comfortable backpacking. The "Insect Blocker" feature definitely works for gnats, mosquitoes, and biting flies. This fall it will be tested against ticks.
