Rated 4 out of 5 by Lightweight sun protection We ordered these for all of our employees and they seem to be quite happy. The shirts are well made, but could have better placed pocket. They are very lightweight and breathable. May 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Shirt! I ordered a black and tan of the exact same shirt, but the tan shirt came with buttons and the black came with snaps! They both are very comfortable and look really nice. The material is very thin. Very practical that you can button up the arms so that it becomes a short shirt, or wear it long. They both look very nice, I like how they are fitted. Would be interested to see how small the xs is? March 31, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great shirt I own three of these shirts, both short and long sleeved. They are extremely comfortable with a fabric that has some ability to stretch. The cut is very feminine. I use mine not only for outdoor activities but for travel. They pack well, are very light and because they don't have a bunch of prominent logos or large pockets the shirt gives a "put together casual" look rather than the "just hung up my fishing pole" look in cities. My only complaints are the small sizing and difficulty removing nstains from the white color. (Keep a bleach stick in your purse) March 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very nice shirt Have 3 of these good quality shirts. Very lightweight, soft, comfortable and cool fabric. Has a Feminine fit, which is a nice change from so many 'boxy' shirts for women. Highly recommend. Would buy more if more colors available. March 25, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Women's silver ridge long sleeve shirt This does run small in the bust,i'm 41" bust and bought the large size,it does pull slightly in the bust but not to noticeable. It is very light & comfortable to wear. It has plenty of comfort stretch so it moves with you, I stitched the front closed & simply slip it on over my head. March 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for hiking We hike twice a week most of the time and I really like the Silver Ridge for hiking. It stays cool and protects me from the sun. On cooler days I wear a tank underneath. I have this in white, too. Cut is a bit more fitted, not loose. Washes up great. Personally, I like the zippered chest pocket. I keep my cellphone in it for taking a quick picture on the trail. Love UPF clothing- don't have to use as much sunscreen. Good shirt for traveling, too. January 1, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wrinkles, right sleeves Shirt is perfect for travel. I like the zipped chest pocket for my credit cards and I like the sleek fit. I have worn the short sleeve version on several off the beaten path travels abroad and was very pleased so decided to buy 2 long sleeve versions. Only issue with long sleeved versions is that shirt is packed tightly into cellophane bag with its right sleeve rolled up and buttoned. Even after several washings right sleeve still looks wrinkly compared to left sleeve. December 16, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Order Up. First off, if you have a larger chest, order up. I ordered the normal size I have worn/ordered before from Columbia and this did not fit at all. I have a larger chest and I had horrible gaping issues. However, that said, once I got the right size, this shirt was fantastic. I loved that I could roll up the sleeves or wear them down and it looked great either way. November 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bought 1 and came back for a 2nd. Good looking, simple styling. Collar and sleeve construction is great. A little tight fitting across the bust (I'm 36D) but so good everywhere else I didn't size up. October 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by SIZE DOWN (or get your actual size) I am UK8-UK10 for tops (65D), and got an M for this because of all the reviews saying that it's fitting. Too freaking huge! It's meant to be fitting, but it was baggy on me. Please stick to your usual size or size down. I am going to order an S next time. This is super stretchy, so I think I can definitely get away with an XS, if not for my shoulders. I ordered Cypress, which is true to photo. I do prefer the Tamiami II over this, despite the more obvious vents. August 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by WOMEN’S SILVER RIDGE™ LONG SLEEVE SHIRT I love this shirt! I highly recommend this shirt for anyone who wants to stay cool/protected from the sun, look great, and feel comfortable while they enjoy the outdoors! August 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great travel shirt This is a wonderful shirt to include in your travel wardrobe. I'm thinking about getting another one in a different color. August 12, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice fitting shirt, but runs small PROs: I like this shirt because it fits me well and is comfortable. The style of this shirt is fitted and body hugging. It is NOT a loose or baggy style shirt. I'm usually a size small or size 4-6, but after reading reviews of this shirt ordered up a size, i.e. I ordered a size Medium. On me, a size Medium fits rather snug but its not tight. For reference, I'm 5'6", 32C. I'm not busty and the shirt is very fitted around my chest. Curvy figures might consider ordering up 2 or more sizes but then the sleeve length may be an issue. The size medium sleeve length is perfect for me. CONs: I like the shirt and will keep it, however, the shirt fabric is a bit thin. I ordered the pink and fossil #beige# colors and I can see my white sports bra through the shirt fabric. If the fabric were a tad less transparent, I would have given the shirt a five star rating. I plan to wear a tank or sleeveless tshirt underneath, but I 'd prefer not having to wear one. August 6, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Fit and Style I am around 5' 2" & 98 - 102 lbs; the Silveridge is the best fitting long sleeve shirt I've found. It is stylish, can be worn casual or business casual. Light weight & roomy enough to wear over a turtleneck in fall/winter or by itself in summer. Roll up sleeves nice touch to the style. Really nice fit - I order XS - it's perfect. July 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great shirt Love it! Wish they would come Out with a grey color!! July 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice shirt This shirt fits well and looks sharp. Love it in black! July 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Silver Ridge Long Sleeve this shirt is very comfortable, I have an athletic fit and thought it might be tight at the shoulders, but fits perfectly, can be outdoor or casual dress June 27, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Finally, a great shirt for women i always bought men's small/medium size shirts with little color options. This women's shirt is tailored and fits just beautifully. The color options are wonderful. I didn't have sunscreen on my arms, which was OK with the protection of the shirt. I recommend it highly. Very, very comfortable. June 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by New Favorite Shirt Love this shirt. Love the way it feels. Love the way it fits.... I will buy more! I like a camp shirt look for layering and this one could go from the trail to a restaurant. June 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great fit This is my favorite shirt! I have short sleeve and long. I wear a Large. I have to order XL. Fits perfectly. Washes extremely well. No wrinkles. I am a landscaper, I get dirty. Always washes out clean. Love the SPF! I get so many compliments. I wish there were more colors! I have them all. June 13, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Better than the plaid I bought this shirt and the same one in plaid blue and they both fit different even though it is the same size. This shirt (blue solid) fits so much better than the plaid. I still think this shirt runs a little small. June 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love the color Cypress I really love the color and the fabric material. Prefer the Tamiami style (the zip side pockets are so useful when one has to carry an Epipen) so would rather buy that one IF it came in Cypress or another shade of deeper green. I buy XL because I like to layer with a turtleneck or tank top. May 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Product Cool, light weight, wear anywhere shirt. Dress it up with a scarf or necklace, or sporty with a bandana. Nicely fitted. I wear them to work where I greet and assist patrons. They are low maintenance, machine wash, flip in the dryer a few minutes and ready to wear. Always look neat. Great for the beach. Zippered pocket comes in handy for small valuables. Never have to iron and collars stand up to protect your neck from sun. Love these shirts. May 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Crisp and Sharp Just what I was looking for. I use the shirt for travel, it performed well even after a long international flight. Wrinkle free basically after three days of travel Comfortable with no binding. Washed up well, hung to dry and again wrinkle free. Looked good with My travel pants. I am 5'5, 120 lbs. 34c and small size fit well, just not as loose as some other similar Columbia size small shirt models. April 8, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Ordered size up so buttons wouldn't pull. I'm an average frame 5'6", 36C. I saw other comments about ordering up so the buttons would not pull across the breast. I decided to do that and ordered an XL. The shirt fits really nicely-buttons don't pull, shoulders sit pretty well, sleeves come slightly over my palm #which I want in the sun#. The shirt is a little fuller through the torso because of how I ordered, but it's perfect for fit, function and comfort. I have ordered a second. Would recommend, but think about the sizing issue if you are fuller busted. February 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great shirt! These shirts fit great! I love the slim shapely fit. The sleeves are actually long enough for me also. I also like the ease of washing, drying and wearing with no ironing needed. I wear my shirt with jeans as well as dress slacks to work. I own four of these and plan to purchase more. February 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Columbia Women’s Silver Ridge™ Long Sleeve Shirt in Fossil As other reviewers have said, the shirt runs small. I usually buy M, but bought a L in this and it fits just right. The sleeves are just a little long for the fit, but probably right for someone wearing a large. The fossil color is close to the pictured color. I have a short sleeve white version of this shirt and it washes and wears well. December 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Silver Ridge Long Sleeve Love this blouse. It fits well, is comfortable and will be great for keeping the sun off while kayaking. October 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by My only shirt these days I've been buying these shirts for a few years now and I love them so much I have expanded my wardrobe to include all colours and two sizes. The large fits me well, but I find it a bit snug for hot weather and the extra large (!?) doesn't look too big, just roomy. I'm a relatively small woman, so this surprises me but comfort is key here, not vanity sizing. Ironed only once when new, they thereafter come through the wash looking tailored and tidy every time, whether straight from the dryer at home or hung over the sink on the Serengeti. With a cotton tank underneath, they're cool, comfortable and sun resistant enough for the most punishing heat and humidity. I even wear some of them in the winter over a turtleneck to add casual panache and colour. I do cut off the hang tag in the collar as soon as I get them; they're horribly scratchy on bare skin, but I've had no problem with the stamped on logo. I love these shirts! Please never stop offering them in all sorts of colours! August 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic shirt! A note: this shirt does run small. I'm a hundred pounds soaking wet, with small shoulders. Therefore, it's perfect for me! It's the first and only sun shirt I've found that fits me. Out of my 18-person geology field class, I'm currently the only one without a sunburn, thanks to these shirts. They don't wrinkle, stains wash out easily, and they dry in a flash on the line. Looks professional in the field, and cute at the bar at night when tied over a dress. I would buy more of them, but these two are holding up so well that I won't need to unless a tempting new color comes out. I have it in a light blue (Geyser?) and the Red Hibiscus color, which is a hot red-pink good for working in the woods during deer season. July 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great women's fit This is the first fishing shirt I've found that is flattering to a woman's body. It's light, comfortable and quick drying. I think I own one in every color!! July 10, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Fits badly There are a couple things going on for this shirt that is good but the bad totally outways it. Good is the longer sleeve caps at wrist, the shaping at the bottom/hem and new colors. Bad is the it is way too small of a fit so order 2 sizes up. The buttons just don't lay right, they bunch up and show your bra. I noticed the difference in other shirts by counting the buttons. I usually wear a size L and this was a XL. Of course the largest size is XL. June 30, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Get the next size up The Silver Ridge line runs small, especially in the women sizes. I bought a medium for my wife and I'm returning it for a large. This line in the men's shirts I think run true to size, a tighter cut than the PFG line for sure but a large is a large in men's, not so for the ladies. It will be my wife's 1st ever size large shirt; she really likes the stye and colors. It's a risky move guys but you might want to buy 1 larger size for your lady friend. May 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this shirt! I love this shirt. It is an all purpose shirt that is versatile & comfortable, while looking neat and attractive. Does run a little small, I normally wear a large- needed an XL so buttons don't pull. January 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great all round shirt I like this shirt because it is good quality, doesn't need ironing and I use it for hiking and for everyday wear so it is versatile. December 20, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by fits a little small, nice details This has lots of functional details and it's a work friendly design. The waist it too snug and the shoulders are also a little snug. October 21, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by I wear these for everything! I have seven of these. I can wear it like a jacket, just as a blouse, or just to keep the sun off. Its pretty much my uniform for work. September 9, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality clothing Working in the sun all day can have it's challenges. I need clothing that works with me, not against me. This shirt is so fantastic, it's my official work shirt for my landscaping business. It stays wrinkle free and gives me a clean and professional look, no matter what color I'm wearing that day! It's breathable, stretches in the right places and is lightweight all day long. And I mean ALL day long! August 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love this shirt Wonderful, comfortable with improved fabric over the previous rendition which would pile a bit with wear. I purchased 2 white and one riptide. I was overjoyed with the riptide color. Also like the fact that the upper sleeve button is now hidden. I am simplifying my wardrobe and plan to use these shirts daily. Thank you Colombia! August 15, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Too small I take a size 16, but when I want a garment to be roomy in cases like hiking, I order a larger size. I ordered an XL in this size, and it turned out to be so small - especially in the sleeves- that I have to warn others to be very careful to order at LEAST one size larger. All the other details, such as fabric and features are very nice. August 1, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by This product is not up to US fitting standards. I have never bought a product that fit so poorly. I had to order two and am not sure yet if I will keep the second one. I am disappointed in Columbia clothing. August 1, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great shirt Love this shirt. Not only is the fabric great but it fits beautifully and can be worn once I get off the trail too. Very happy with it. July 29, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Inconsistent, runs small Bought this shirt in a retail store. Liked it and ordered exact shirt in a different color. It was too small. I usually wear a medium and this was a large! I paid shipping both ways ($16.50) and ended up with nothing. I will not order from here again. July 26, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great for warm/hot weather and travel This shirt fits me just right. I'm 6' tall and the sleeves are long enough! Chest pocket is great for a passport. I'd prefer snaps as closures instead of the buttons. Snaps would also eliminate the awkward button cover on the upper sleeve for the roll tab. Easy to wash in the sink and hang dry, very lightweight for hot weather. Interesting piecing of shoulder construction works fine. I like the waist area shaping to avoid the boxy look. Shaped hem is nicely finished. July 24, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by Too small, too hot I ordered medium instead of small, thinking extra room would be cooler for summer, but even a size up, it gaped at the bosom. The fabric was dense, would not have been cool for summer. It was nicely made but not suitable for a comfortable outdoor summer shirt and not a medium. I just put the return in the mail today. July 9, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by A step up in style I bought this shirt online as it was not in the local store. Most of the outdoor wear with sun protected fabric tops are truly unfashionable with very unattractive prints/fabrics. But this shirt was comfy and very functional for those of us needing/wanting sun protection while outdoors. I wore it on a trip down the Danube and elevated it to wearing it not once, but 3 times. Many ladies in the 50+ range want to be stylish, but protected from the sun. This shirt is a step in the right direction. July 8, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by Wore out very fast Within a day this shirt looked a year old. The fabric wore and pilled by the end of the first day of hiking. It was perfectly functional, however, I am not happy with the immediate wear on the product. July 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by An essential--long and short sleeve I love this shirt in all colors, short and long sleeves. It's attractive and functional. Travels well. July 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great shirt for sun coverage I was admiring my cruise mate's crisp shirt. It was neat and smart looking. I asked her what brand and she told me Columbia. She layered with long sleeve cotton shirt. She said she washed at night, and it was dry in the morning, no wrinkles. Since sun is a problem for me I thought I would try. I purchased 2 of these shirts. I read the reviews, normally I wear M I did size up to L. It's a little big, especially in the hip area. I may size down as it stretches. I like the fact that the collar extends to cover the neck. The sleeves cover the top of hand to help stop sun damage. I would recommend this to a friend! July 2, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by sizes run smaller than earlier versions love these shirts but they run small and are snug in the chest if you are a bit chesty June 7, 2013
