My husband commutes to work by bike and complained that his cycle shirts were not drying fully before it was time to leave for home. I gave him 2 of the Columbia Utilizer shirts and he wears only them now. They dry fast, the fit is loose so he feels cooler on his rides and they look nice to boot. ...

Columbia knows how to build a great shirt that is both lightweight AND durable. Plus, it FITS! Amazing. But in my last order, I ordered 4 short sleeve button-up casual shirts from 3 different manufacturers, and this was the only shirt that fit. And FIT, it did. The color is very bright. So, you're definitely going to be noticed and get some comments. But they've been really positive comments. So, good on ya, Columbia. In fact, I just ordered the Yellow. I signed up for notifications for if/when Sierra Trading Post get s more of my size in all of the other colors shown. Too bad it's a Closeout.

I was shopping for quick-drying breathable shirts. Because my current favorite is a mixture of polyester & nylon, I was considering either or both fabrics but thought I would avoid shirts with much cotton because I figured cotton wouldn't be quick-drying. This shirt said it was polyester, so it fit my criterion for fabric. However, the shirt I received is actually 66% cotton, 30% nylon, 4% lycra. Hmmm.
So, I came back to this webpage to see if I might have misread the description. The overview of this shirt says "100% polyester" (so I wasn't crazy!) but when I clicked on the technical details tab I saw "66% cotton, 30% nylon, 4% lycra, or 100% polyester". Interesting (the "or" part)! Well, I guess that is true. I wonder if the solid-colored shirts (which also happen to have 2 pockets rather than one - at least in the photos) are poly because the plaid shirts (we bought 3 different ones) are made from the cotton mixture.
Good news, though. After a couple wearings, I am pleasantly surprised by the cotton mixture plaid shirt which does indeed seem to be lightweight and wicking, as described. I recommend the cotton/nylon/lycra shirts ...especially when they're offered at 70% off list!
