Great Lightweight Longsleeve Shirt

Reviewed by MickHLR from Texas on Friday, December 13, 2013
First off, let me say that as far as the Columbia Silver Ridge shirts, there are two distinctly different shirts, according to material color. I first bought a Columbia Silver Ridge shirt in the Marsh Mini Check color. I absolutely love the material, it comes out of the drier looking great…and I always look for that, as I bought one Columbia shirt that has too much cotton and always needs ironing. So, now I only look for shirts with NO cotton. This shirt DOES NOT need ironing. And, I had seen other reviews saying the shirt runs small, so I ordered a XXL. Sure wish I hadn’t done that. I'm 6' 4" and 230 lbs. Absolutely love the shirt’s feel and color, but it does NOT run smaller than normal. So, I liked it so much that ordered a Deep Woods Mini Check color in XL...fits great and both of these mini check shirts are wonderful. Keep that in mind...MINI CHECK shirts are wonderful. Now, I liked these so much that I ordered two more...one in Marsh Plaid, and one in Emerald Plaid. The material in these shirts are totally different, they wrinkle more, and do not come out of the drier looking perfect like the mini check shirts do. And, these plaid ones do run a little small, as other reviews have mentioned. I would've liked to have the XXL in these shirts...the material is thinner, not the shiny satin-like material of the mini check shirts...and they wrinkle bad. Even though the material in the Silver Ridge shirts are supposed to be the same for all, it's not even close. My suggestion...buy the mini check colors in the size you normally wear, but steer away from the plaid ones.
