Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Windward III Overshirt I ordered this for my husband for work since he works in a company where he's in and out of the cold. He loved it so much, I'm ordering a 2nd one in a different color while they're still on sale. The only downfall is that they are pricey for work shirts. March 13, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by I want to fall in love with this shirt, but one big issue... So I just received this shirt today. I love the material both inside and out. It's lightweight and cozy. The sleeves are just a tad short, but that alone I can live with. What I'm not ok with is the tail of the shirt. Out of the bag, the shirt tail was very bunched up and mangled looking. As I do with all of my nice garments, I tossed it in the wash on a cold, delicate cycle. Tumble dried low until it was slightly damp, and then removed it. It dried out quick, which I like. However, the shirt tail still looked pretty awful. So I went after it with the iron on a low setting. That did help some, but not enough. Despite the shirt having a fairly "crisp" appearance in general (as shown on the product pics), the tail is still messed up looking. In the product pics, notice how the image that shows the tail is nice and flat... then check the image I included. Not so great. It was actually a lot worse before ironing. Considering what I paid for the shirt, I'm going to have to send this back. January 6, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very comfortable shirt The first thing I noticed was, the inner layer material, very comfortable and warm. Great for outdoors and no need of an extra jacket. December 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great warmth from this shirt, great style too I like this shirt because it can be worn as an over-shirt (shirt-jacket) or just wear it over a base layer. Great construction and materials, I got the tan corduroy one and it looks great. My One design suggestion would be that if it had outside hand warming pockets it would be the perfect shirt-jacket.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Very nice, but the quality (?) I ordered this shirt for my son in bright red plaid color (for your reference he's 6'1 and ~160. Size L fits him well). However, a first time when he tried it on, one of the button broke in half. It made me concern about the quality of this product, I wanted to return it but he decided to keep it anyway because he liked this shirt. He hasn't wash it yet so I can't tell it will shrink or not.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Great shirt. This shirt is a great mid layer on frigid days or a functional shirt-jacket when the temperature allows it. If there were either hand pockets or an inside pocket I would have given this shirt a 5 star rating. Fits well, just slightly big, but that allows it to easily fit on top of another shirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Men’s Windward™ III Overshirt This sweatshirt was even more then I expected it to be. When it first arrived in the mail I opened it up and immediately put it on. It gave me a little surprise when I found out the inside is lined with a very fuzzy layer which keeps you perfectly warm in the cold. Thank You Columbia for the amazing sweatshirt and i will be buying from you again soon. October 4, 2014
