Silky fabric - love the function
This shirt is silky smooth and lightweight, but it does its job of blocking the sun and providing excellent coverage. I bought the XL size, which is a bit roomy for my frame, but I loved it so much, I kept it for layering and ordered another color in Large, which fits me perfectly. The color - quill - is a dark, rich purple - truly lovely. There are all sorts of bonus features on this shirt, like discreet pockets and sleeves you can roll and button near the triceps.

Go One Size Bigger
It's a little discouraging that women have to go one size bigger than their normal, natural size to get Columbia shirts and shorts to fit properly. LOVE the quality and style of Columbia but I shouldn't have to be ordering a Large! :(

too see through
Need to wear a shirt under this, the white I purchased is too see through, yet one can't wear a long sleeve shirt under it because the sleeves are too tight. This is after I bought a medium even though I usually take small based on prior reviews....

Unfortunately I am an in between size but the quality is superior!
It takes a little getting used to the ingenious pocket flap design.

Great shirt in hot weather
I LOVE this shirt. I read other reviews and agree that it runs a little small, but the size I ordered fits just right. The sleeves were a little long but I usually roll them up anyway. Can't wait to go fishing and wear this shirt. I will definitely buy this shirt in another color.

The drawbacks: I usually wear a large but had to send that back and order an XL in order to get the sleeve length I need, making the waist-level dimension so big I'm trying to figure how to alter it. Longer sleeves on the size large would have done the trick.
And I wish it had snaps instead of buttons. The Tamiami has snaps and I'm loving that feature.
All other aspects of the shirt are wonderful. It looks and drapes like silk, it is shaped at the sides so doesn't look boxy, the Emerald color is rich, it is so easy to wash in the sink and hang dry quickly.
One more thought is that the 2 little pockets high on the chest are pretty useless. The waist level pocket would be even better if it were large enough to fit a passport.

Saturday trail stretch shirt
I have three Columbia shirts and the small fits perfectly. Unfortunately this shirt is too tight in the body and long in the arms. It's been sent back. I loved the color for an upcoming fall trip, but will have to keep looking. I wish Columbia would offer free shipping like Zappos. It cost me $6.00 to have this sent to me and $5.00 to return - $11.00 for a shirt I can't use. Too bad.

I recommend it with some caveats
The fit is attractive except the pockets on the chest, the fabric is so silky that the lumps made by the velcro closure are unsightly. Chest pockets on a woman's shirt are of no use unless the female is very flat-chested, and on a fabric so soft and silky, anything in the pocket would distort the shape of the shirt. I'd recommend that this shirt be redesigned without the pockets, unless they were made differently with the primary function to make the front chest a little thicker for women who prefer to go braless. The fabric is see-through in white, not much more concealing in colors. I kept the bright blue, returning the white one.

Perfect Shirt for the Desert
I am living in Saudi Arabia and this shirt was the perfect purchase for me. It is lightweight with the wicking capability. Also it is versatile with the sleeves that can be long or rolled up. I purchased two of the shirts and will be purchasing more. They are very cool, safe in the sun and modest for my current living situation.

runs very small
did not care for the fabric, but was stretchy that was helpful as it runs very small in size

This shirt is so comfortable and the plum color is perfect. I bought a large but will buy a medium next for a fit that is more snug. The shirt is great for an outdoor picnic, breathable and light but fashionable too!

White too sheer
The very soft white fabric is too sheer, and the velcro on the pockets cause it not to lay flat. I like their other women's shirts of slightly heavier stretch fabric.

Shirt rated as fits lruns large -
Description says fit runs large so I order medium. But I could not get it buttoned around my waist. I liked everything about it otherwise, so I reordered a large.

Fine travel, camping and hiking shirt
This style is one of my favorites for outdoor and travel wear. The fit is just right for me, and the plum color is very different and flattering. Like others of its kind, this shirt is wrinkle free, dries overnight when traveling, and breathes well. I find that the fit of the Columbia Sportswear shirts looks better on me than competitors' shirts. I've stuck with the Silver Ridge line until this Saturday Trail shirt, and I think it's a good variation, with new colors in particular. The velcro-close patch pockets on the chest might bother some women since they hit at high chest level, and I doubt that I'll use them, but they aren't a problem for me in terms of how the fabric lays. I have this shirt in both a L and a M, with the L giving me extra room for reaching and paddling, while the M is a trimmer fit and look. I think they run true to size.

Saturday Trail Shirt
Up until now, shirts gave UV protection and were light but they were not as comfortable as a woven t-shirt material for outdoor activities. All that has changed with these shirts, as they stretch and give with movement. Great invention, please produce more clothing items that 'give' with movement! This shirt is similar to the Silver Ridge, but the material is smooth instead of textured, is cut boxier, and has different pockets.
