Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great summer shirt This shirt is one of the best I've ever had. It runs a little large so I was able to go down a size. It is so lightweight, it is is comfortable in the warmest weather. Easy to take care of, Just wash and dry and go. Will buy there again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable, good looking and stain resistant I tried the shirt on in a store before hand. I am usually between a medium and a large, the medium fit perfect, not too tight. A large would have been a bit big. The shirt is comfortable and feels nice with no undershirt on. I have received quite a few complements on the shirt. I got to test the Blood and Guts stain resistance the first day I wore it. My cattledog decided he wanted to play and jump on me with muddy paws. The mud stains came out with no issues in the wash. I plan on picking up a couple more since they are nice casual shirts to wear as well as a good fishing shirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great choice I bought this shirt for my son-in-law for his birthday. It arrived in a timely way, it fits beautifully, he fabric is perfect for Florida and it is affordable quality. He loves it and I love the fact that he’s happy with my gift.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fights stains and keeps you cool I have bought numerous other PFG’s and I love them all. I have gotten a couple dirt stains on some of my old ones and they aren’t ever coming out. I bought 2 of these blood and guts and have gotten both very dirty and they cleaned up perfect. The only downfall for me is the vented back faces down instead having air flow come from the side like others. The side vent is cooler overall but still a great shirt. Will buy more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful shirt I live in Mississippi where the humidity and temperature get extremely hot. This shirt allows air to come in and keep me cool. The fabric is so comfortable and light. I plan on buying more of these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best for hot days My wife bought me one of these new Columbia Blood and Guts shirts and it is so comfortable if I have to be out in the hot sun walking, working, or just active in the hot weather. Also, I don't have to worry about stains . I recommend this shirt and will be buying a few more as my wallet allows.... Also, I tend to wear large shirts but I have to buy mediums when I buy Columbia so got to store and try on a few so you know your sizes or just return, to which their policy is very friendly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent beach and caribean clothing This shirt is excellent to wear in hot and humid climates. The fabric is light weight and easily maintained. After washing, just place it in a dryer or hang it to dry and it maintains its good looks. The fabric repels stains and the colors are vibrant. I particularly like the vented back for hot summer days on the beach. This is my favorite shirt to wear when I escape the northern winters and head south to enjoy the sunshine. The shirt runs a little large. I am 5' 9" and weigh 170. pounds and the small fits me well. Normally I wear a medium.

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 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 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.
