Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 18 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Extremely pleased Light material but very tough. Excellent ability to stay cool in hot weather. Well designed and well constructed. Generous pockets and good venting system. Buttons seem well attached. June 19, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Runs small Because I never got to wear this shirt I rated it as a 3, it is likely better than that, but since I washed it before I tried to wear it, I couldn't return it for a size that would better fit me. May 26, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by always a quality product Another quality product. This white shirt is always sharp looking. March 3, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Shirt for the Hot Field! I love this wonderfully made garment. I didn't like what the ladies section had to offer that was on sale at the time, so I checked out the men's shirts and I'm glad I did! I needed a lightweight, khaki shirt that wouldn't make me too sweaty on 100 F days in the Alabama outdoors and this definitely keeps me nice and cool. I can feel even the slightest of breezes through the shirt to my back, which is quite pleasant. The sunglass cleaner patch is genius, too!! My medium does fit awkwardly, but I knew it wouldn't fit right due to it not being made to handle a woman's curves. But I don't go out in the field to look pretty, so I'm fine with it. It's well made, well ventilated, has great pocket locations, I'm a very happy customer! This was my first Columbia purchase and I'm hooked. January 7, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great shirt Awesome shirt. Lightweight and great looking. December 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cascade Explorer Short sleeve Great looking shirt with many benefits. Its light weight so it will dry quickly. Vented in the back for added comfort. The fit of the shirt is excellent and it looks really looks good too. I always wear a large and this fits just as one would expect.....very nice. October 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome shirt! Comfortable, nice material, and I love the venting!! This is my third color. September 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Little tight in the shoulders I like the shirt (in the pictures only w/o being able to try them on) and bought it in a few colors. I wore each color once so far. I like how they are built except the shoulders are restricting my arm movements. I don't want the next size up to fix that problem as i don't want to be wearing a garbage bag with holes in it. I wish there were stores I could go to try these things on first and still get the great deals! I wear an XL in all of my shirts and i have lots! Not sure why these are so tight in the shoulders. I should say some thing to Columbia about it, but they would just give me my money back, so I am telling you instead. That's all I have for you as they want my review when I have only had the garments for about a week. August 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Shirt Fits well and easy to iron if needed. Dried overnight on hanger after first wash. August 30, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Comfy shirt The utility loops on chest seem useless and cover up the buttons. It did seem to wrinkle a little bit compared to other fishing style shirts! August 27, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cool and Light I love this shirt. It's nice enough to wear to the office on casual days in addition to being great outdoors. I have a beard and the soft collar doesn't get in the way. I highly recommend this shirt. August 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing Product Great shirt for trekking through the jungle or city. I did both recently in Thailand, the shirt performed amazing. The pockets streamlined airport paperwork, maps, hiking snacks, and camera. The cotton part for cleaning my glasses was used quite a bit and it was washed easy in the sink and was quick to dry. The shirt was also cool in a hot climate. August 20, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by "Modern" fit This style is considered a "modern" fit, which is true to size through the shoulders but snug through the chest area. If a "full" loose fit through the chest is desired, order next larger size. August 14, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by cascades explorer shirt I am a fan of Columbia sportswear. However, unfortunately, the Cascades Explorer shirt is a big disappointment. I avoid the cotton shirts because they took terrible out of the dryer. I was wanted a shirt in 100% polyester like other styles I have to be wrinkle free. The tag says 100% polyester but the fabric feel thick and more like cotton. I don't like to iron but this shirt stays wrinkled to the point of looking unkempt. Wish that I had bought a "Blood N Guts" style instead. August 10, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Wrinkled This shirt was very wrinkled after line drying. I will be traveling and hand washing for 2 weeks. Shirt will be ok for work days but not dress up July 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Terrific shirt This shirts fits well, is very comfortable, and the fabric and green color are distinctive. Works great for life outdoors here in Florida. May 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Impressed I was a skeptical buyer on this one, but i'm glad I did. I am reviewing the Medium (Backcountry Orange) short sleeved shirt. Much better in my opinion than the Silver Ridge short sleeve shirt. Better fabric, fit, and function. This shirt is simply awesome and will be a go to for many occasions and work. I am a big fan of "trail" gear and this is a great addition. Love the fact you can lash things to the loop on the chest, or even hold your sunglasses there. The chest pockets are double pockets, they open from the top like normal, but also from the side, allowing for better organization. Also there are 2 huge back vents, the fabric has my favorite tech built into it, (Omni-Shield)... Love it! Columbia, please produce more colors! May 23, 2015
