Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 251 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by The size makes it a bad buy The pros: Great color(White cap). Obviously the company does alot of R&D. The material keeps you cool. The cons: The size is ridiculously large. Summary: I understand that this is an outdoor company and the idea is that their clothing is used during the course of a certain activity but let's be honest the brand is worn and probably is sustained by people buying their clothing to wear at times other than during the course of the assigned activity. In this case, I am on the board of an outdoor conservation organization and we bought these shirts to distinguish ourselves as board members during our annual fundraiser. We ordered these shirts through our organization and had them embroidered which means no return or exchange. I ordered a size smaller than I usually wear in anticipation of the larger cut. When I received the shirt I found that I should have ordered two sizes smaller than my usual…which would have been a small. I am 5’8” and 160 pounds, I haven’t worn a small since I was 10-12 years old. For this reason alone, I am rating this product as Poor. I think that you can do all the R&D in the world but if a consumer has to order two sizes smaller than usual, you have missed the mark. Consumer Recommendations: Do buy this shirt as the brand is well recognized and the shirt has the potential to fit the bill of style and function. Don’t buy this shirt online…you need to try it on first. If you do buy online make sure the return/exchange policy is rock solid as you will probably have to return/exchange it. Company Recommendations: Have a wider range of Product Testers. Put a product like this out to more “fashion” testers. Make sure they get the product in their usual size to ensure fit is close to desired. April 29, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Mens PFG Perfect cast Polo Item was well made, but fit me very loose on the arms and chest area like a large would fit. April 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best "polo-style" shirt ever. Looks good, feels good. I buy a lot of "polo-style" shirts. This is best one yet and that includes much more pricey ones. I will buy more - lots of colors! April 15, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Large is to big tha other Larges. I bought size L but is to big for me. Is more big the other sizes large. April 2, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by No free exchanges! I am very disappointed that management at Columbia would not let me exchange this incredibly oversized polo for a smaller size free. PLease see the photo, both Columbia shirts are sized mediums! Instead they expected me to pay the $20+ postage. March 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very nice Runs a little big which is a plus to me. Excellent quality and very comfortable. March 2, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice but ran large! This shirt was just what I was looking for but it was so large that I was unable to wear it. Will be exchanging for a smaller size. December 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect polo Love everything about this shirt, perfect for fishing in and then going to dinner in! December 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stay cool in 110 Degree weather I was a bit skeptical when I read about Columbia's Perfect Cast shirts. I live in Pakistan and the heat index averages around 110-120 from April to August. So I initially ordered a 3XL shirt, which was about a size larger for me because of the relaxed fit. I sweat a lot and this shirt just keeps me cool as a cucumber. The stitching and fabric is great. I am a returning customer and have ordered a couple more. The best thing is the shirts are iron-free. Just take them out of the dryer and wear them. November 27, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product Fits good, feels good so I guess it must look good also. Well worth the purchase! September 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very comfortable This shirt is very comfortable. It is cool on the hot days. The shirt seems to fit one or two sizes large. September 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Too big! Should have paid attention to reviews that said to size down. My husband wears 2XL in everything, not this. Couldnt return because I had removed labels and washed it. Beautiful shirt but didn't work, no way he can wear this. September 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Shirt Great looking, extremely comfortable. Great quality! August 27, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by great shirts! Bought these shirts to wear to work. I work outside in the southeast and it is hot and humid. Shirts are cool, dry quickly and look good. July 24, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Buy a size smaller. Probably should get a size smaller than normal. July 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome for golf or any event... Best shirt, best value! Well made! July 20, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Wayyy too big This thing was like a foot wider than me. Ordered a M. I'm 5'11" 160. Order one or two sizes down. Otherwise a good shirt. July 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfortable Plus I got this shirt because several buddies have it and the look was good on them. When I ordered it, the reviews said the shirt ran a bit big. This is true, and makes the shirt even more comfortable because it is not snug like so many others on the market. The way this shirt is made feels so comfortable even on a hot day in the South. I has held up well and I get comments on how good it looks. July 11, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice shirt, way big Nice lightweight polo; however, it was at least one size too big. Returned it without any issues. July 2, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Desired color no longer available after receiving product too LARGE. Very frustrated after 4 different orders and all of the shirts were very large compared to my normal size. When I attempted to reorder I find out that my preferred color (Gulf Stream) is no longer available and while waiting for this color to be available in Medium I find out the shirts are no longer on sale. Some of the shirts too large I plan on giving to other family members but I hate that the grandson I wanted to send 3 or 4 shirts to for his upcoming college years in size Medium want apparently get them at the reduced $30. July 1, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good Quality, Bad Fit I read all the reviews before buying this shirt online and saw that the fit ran fairly large, but I still bought a medium, because I wear either a medium or large for every shirt I own. However, when I received the shirt in the mail and put it on it was huge. For any other brand it would probably be considered an XL. I am 5'11" and 150 lbs. The quality of the shirt seems very good, but the fit was just way too loose for me. May 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect polo at work or play These shirts are great, I can wear it all day at work or use it for a comfortable day on the water. It is even classy enough to use on a casual night out. Can't beat the multifunctional options you have with this line of shirts. May 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by No Iron So comfortable with the benefit of no ironing. I have purchased 5 of these shirt for my husband -.one for each day of the week. He loves the comfort and I love the "no iron" April 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect Fit If you want a multi use shirt that is comfortable and not too tight this is it. I wanted something that was relaxed and yet looked sharp...This is it. Love these. April 15, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Warning - Runs one size too large Very prompt service. Appears to be a great quality product. I rated this product 3 stars only because of the hassle involved in exchanging it. I have bought other Columbia shirts with no problems. However, the sizing of this model is WAY OFF. Order one size smaller than you usually wear and enjoy. April 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by casual comfort Very comfortable and roomy shirt. Made from a heavy material. The Sage looked like khaki online but when it came it was a grey green. Great color. March 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for Golf Too! I purchased three PFG cast Polo's for golf. I really like the relaxed fit around my arms and midsection. Perfect for a day on the golf course, tooling around town or casual day at the office. March 20, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by HUGE! This is a very well made, extremely comfortable shirt. It is, however, the largest "large" size I've ever purchased. If large has ever been a little too big for you, then get a medium. Oh yea, the customer service is AMAZING! I get my orders within 48 hours of ordering. February 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love This Shirt I love this shirt. If I had more money I would buy probably 10 of them. It does run large like everyone says. I am normally a medium and I haven't worn a small shirt in 15 years, but In this shirt I have to order a small. But don't let that deter you from getting this polo. This is a shirt you can use for everything. Golf, church, dinner out and everything else. First, it feels great. It is a little heavier than a normal polo but it is super comfortable. It has openings in the back to help keep you cool. Perfect for spring, summer and fall. It is a well made shirt and you will want to wear it everyday. Second, it looks great. I have a black one with a college logo on it and just recently got the gulf stream color. Everyone will compliment you on the shirt trust me. Also with all the colors available you can't go wrong. Overall my favorite polo that I own. And one of my top 3 shirts in my closet. Trust me, buy this shirt you will not regret it. January 14, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Comfortable polo shirt Have worn this shirt weekly for over a year. No fading, no issues with collar wear or creasing. The material will get small pulls in areas, but they don't unravel and are mainly cosmetic wear and tear. Material breaths well, but is a little thicker than the Freeze polos. May 19, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Way Over Sized I wear an XL in most clothes. If not a Large is generally fine. I ordered an XL in this shirt, it was massive! I returned it for a Large! Still way to big! I recently returned it and I am waiting for a Medium. February 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by The perfect polo for the perfect cast! Yes, this is the perfect cast polo and by far the best made polo for the outdoors-man I have ever worn. Being on the lake everyday like I am I need something that is easy to clean and very durable to take what I can throw at it. It is very comfortable and even more stylish. It makes a for a great polo to wear on the water and out with my friends! With this polo making me comfortable on the water every cast feels like the perfect cast! February 17, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Runs Big Shirt is very wide, size down February 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by My go to everyday shirt I own just about every color of this shirt and wear one almost every day. the pique fabric and rear vents keep me cool during hot sumer days on the water. January 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent exchange service This product is outstanding and Columbia has an outstanding customer service department. They exchanged the product and gave shipping / return help quickly. Very friendly! January 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by All Smiles with these gifts! Everyone wants and keeps these shirts. No returns! (Buy a size smaller, they run large). Everything Columbia makes is Great Quality. January 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by The product is wonderful and wears great! My husband loves these shirts, they wear so great he wants every color. This product has saved me, with every holiday all I have to do is choose a color he doesn't have yet! (smile) December 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Shirt is great to wear in all weather! Wonderful purchase, good shirt! December 26, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is very comfortable This product runs true to size, does not shrink, and is very comfortable to wear December 11, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sun protection and ventilation I live in Florida and these Perfect Cast Polo shirts give great sun protection with good ventilation. I have four of them! November 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Shirt I read all the reviews for this polo before purchase. Lucky for me the reviews were true, most comfortable and good looking polo I have found in a long time. I will be buying a couple more colors, thanks Columbia! October 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great shirt for outdoor men The information says it runs a bit large but that is a good thing for a working man. The shoulders are comfortable fit without the rest of the shirt being too large. We have ordered several now and my husband likes the fit of everyone. Good quality, great service, nice looking product. Worth its price. August 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfortable, wicking material. At age 59 I have finally decided to select garments that I can wear comfortably without a cotton t-shirt underneath. With a t-shirt, in hot weather, the t shirt absorbs sweat and weights you down. There is no need to wear a t-shirt with this product. It is comfortable, and wicks away moisture. I was unaware of the "camo" around the neck line when I ordered, but it gives the shirt some personality. I understand Columbia sizes these shirts large, to accommodate casting a fishing rod, etc. I do not plan to do any fishing or macho athletic activity while wearing this shirt. I normally wear large, I am 6' 0", 200 lb. I ordered a medium and it fits me fine. These shirts will spoil you. August 5, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Love the shirt First time ordering a product of any kind on-line. Loved the quality and the functionality of the shirt! My Favorite Shirt! August 2, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by A little large I ordered Large because the site said they run "a little large." I'm usually an XL guy but their XL was way too big in the past. I took a chance on L. I could have gone medium. July 31, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by This shirt is different. This shirt is different, because of the vented back. Not only is the vent functional, but people notice it. Also, the sleeves are banded -- it seems that all polyester shirts made today have loose, hemmed sleeves, or they have short, banded sleeves. This shirt has banded sleeves that come almost to the elbow. It does run a little large, so I take a medium, whereas in a cotton shirt I take a large. I bought one in Florida, where I was able to try it on. When I got home, I bought four more. Great shirt! July 31, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by "gg" Great quality and value. Purchased two dozen for a client's golf tournament. Will be back. July 30, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Poor fit As i put on the shirt my wife said it looked like a blind man made this shirt July 8, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good looking, comfortable shirts I have several of these shirts in different colors. They hold up well, they're great for hot weather and they look good. They definitely run large - I normally wear a large but have to get a medium in these shirts, and the sizing is somewhat inconsistent even among the mediums I've ordered. But overall, these are very nice shirts and comfortable even during the heat of a Florida summer. July 2, 2013
