Men's Blood and Guts™ III Short Sleeve Woven Shirt is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 38.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from No stains Great shirt, I bought a few, and wear them all the time. The easiest shirt I owned as far as care. I wash and hang, no wrinkles, and best of all no matter what I spill on it, from spaghetti sauce, to oily foods. NO STAINS...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome shirt! I purchased shirts for my construction guys and they loved it. Shirt is very versatile. They can wear it to work which will keep them cool in this hot Houston, TX weather. Or, they can wear it leisurely. I was told it doesn't stain easily when fishing. I will definitely purchase again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Cool My husband doesn't enjoy outdoor dining and evening activities during the summertime because he gets so hot and sweaty. I bought this shirt for him for our recent beach vacation and he was so cool and comfortable. We're buying this shirt in every color!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light weight When the sun is blazing down on my back, the vents on the back relieves me from the heat with cool air flow. I have had amazing luck, after gutting fish, it is always a mess, but never stains!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Outstanding Shirt Extremely Comfortable, Very Light Weight, and Very Breathable. And does a great job of protecting from the sun. If you get caught in a downpour this is the shirt you want to have, water repels off the shirt and it dries very quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New favorite! Used to be a tamiami only guy, however this shirt is magnificently more functional! I do miss the Omni wick but hey I barely notice this shirt doesn't have it! Yea u need to treat certain stains the same way u normally would (i.e. Blood =peroxide). I don't expect it to "never stain" let's be real here. I work in a soils lab and it has taken some punishment that any other colombia shirt would have been difficult to get stain out of. This one faster than a race car and tougher than a two dollar steak! Only complaint (if u will) is MORE COLORS PLEASE! Fits just like a normal short sleeve colombia button down. (Slightly large) but comfortable

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding shirt The best shirt that Columbia has come out with, by far!. Perfect fit, comfortable feel, doesn't lose it's shape after repeated washing and it actually repels fish blood. Keep em coming! More colors!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great looking and practical Colors are great. love the comfort, fit, back vent, protection from the sun and Velcro front pockets. Even a sun glass lens cleaner which I use all the time. I wear these shirts every day, fishing or not fishing

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite shirt I love these shirts! They are very comfortable and the Blood and Guts in particular are best since they won't stain. They look more like a dress shirt and I get lot's of nice comments when I wear them. Excellent fabric and no ironing needed. Wish they would add some to the Big & Tall shop. Buy one and you won't be sorry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wifely bonus points for buying this one!! I bought two of these shirts for my husband, who, being neither a fisherman nor hiker, needed shirts for working outside that would keep him cool, protect from the sun, and withstand activities like building fence, chainsawing logs, etc. on Missouri summer days when the heat is above 95 degrees and the humidity is impossibly above 100%. He loves the shirts so much I am ordering another (long sleeved this time--shhh! It's a Christmas present). Thanks, Columbia, for the wifely bonus points I received for my purchase of these shirts!! The shirts ran true to size, hung well around the shoulders, and he could even button the top button. Washes up nicely and never makes it to his closet because he wants to wear one as soon as it's clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crawdaddy's shirt Love these shirts. I have some of the earlier Columbia shirts and I have taken them(7) when I was working in U.A.E and they help keep me cool in the 120+ degree weather. Could not do with out them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks great I like it. But I agree with some other reviewers, it runs small.
Date published: 2016-04-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shirt very comfortable and loose fit. I have some of the older Blood and Guts shirts and decided to try the new style. This shirt didn't disappoint. I ordered a couple more while they have them in stock. These shirts always seem to sell out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Fits perfectly. Bought to keep the weight very low and very functional. can be hand washed and dried overnight for next day wear. I have a similar shirt in orange color. That one came in real handy and was very functional. The material is thin enough to absorb sweat and dry rapidly. High recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good light weight shirt. I don't like the material as well as Bonehead or Bahamas, but it looks and wears fine. It fits fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice shirt. Little small Very nice shirt. Fits a little smaller than the boneheads. Very light and breathable

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great shirt.... Very nice summer shirt....great for Fishing or going out on the town. It does run smaller than the bonehead and bahama shirts. I usually wear a Medium, but I wear a Small in the bonehead and bahama shirts. This shirt runs small and a medium would fit me better. Great shirts, all...but Columbia should get the sizes uniform.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Size problem I'm definitely a med and the first one could have easily been a lge. Had to send back for a small and of course pay the shipping. Small fits me perfect. Love the shirt!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Gift for any occasion I gave this shirt to my son for Fathers Day. He loved it and said it fit exactly. He lives in Texas and it is very hot where he is. He said it was very comfortable and he felt very cool working outside in it. He is difficult to buy for and now that I know he loves this shirt, I will definitely be buying more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazed by comfort and function I normally wear a L in most shirts, but Columbia often runs just a bit large. I'm 5'10" and 195lbs with athletic build and M is perfect! I will order more of these. I spilled coffee down the front of my shirt last week and it bounced off. What didn't repel flew off when I shook the shirt a bit. Amazing.
Date published: 2015-06-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blood n Guts I am 5'8" 185 pounds and I wear a Small. I'm not a fan of wearing really loose clothing so a small works for me. Still have full range of motion and not too big in the stomach area. Great shirt!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blood and guts shirts These shirts are comfortable and resist stains better that most.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flat Pockets--Yes!! These shirts are the right fabric that wash and wear perfectly. Shirts made with oversized puffy pockets don't lay well--these do! Some nylon fabrics also "pucker" when you wash them--these don't. I can finally retire my 6-7 yr old flat pocket Columbias for these. Good job! Sun glass cleaner patch is a nice touch too.
