This is an all around useful shirt for fall and winter wear. The fabric is both silent and tough. It is not for summer wear unless you live in Alaska. As usual Columbia puts out an excellent product. Roomy pockets are great if you carry a small pair of binocs or digital camera on your hunts.

Bought this specifically to be able to go to the park on the days when it's a little wet, muddy, raining etc. Other coats/pants can't stop the wet and don't clean up. I can't comment yet on stain resistance, but for these purposes, it doesn't matter. The zipper is a little sticky. The sleeves a a wee bit long, but my kid is small for her age and it's nothing major. Otherwise, it's a good piece of inexpensive [...] clothing.

These are one of the most comfy shoes I own. I wanted a quick slip-on that would feel comfortable like a running shoe. The are very lightweight and not as casual as a running shoe but not as dressy as a mule. Perfect!

Use it for that quick run to the market, in the office, or a night at the movies. It's so versatile. I wish the brand "Columbia" weren't embroidered on the upper front of the jacket. Would be better if it were near the hemline or edge of the sleeve. Other than that, a must-have for every wardrobe!
