Reviews

Men's Featherweight Hike™ Long Sleeve Shirt is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 38.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from I wasted my money When I put the shirt on, I noticed the excessive amount of static. The fit was good for me, however it runs small from the sizing chart. I wash the shirt, hoping static would be eliminated. The opposite was true. It became super staticky shirt. Able to stick to tall buildings at a glancing pass. I also noticed that the sleeves were now 2 inches shorter. How was this possible? The shirt is polyester. Wrinkling. The entire shirt was a million small wrinkles, effectively taking it from an XL to a M. After 30 minutes of ironing it under a towel, as you do not dare touch the iron to this fabric else it melt like butter. The sleeves were still short, and the fabric a static mess.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Awesome shirt! Bought to use while through hiking. Very, very lightweight but durable even when snagged on the trail. Easy to rinse/wash on the trail, dries quickly and ready to wear again in short order. Planning on buying another.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from RE: Really is featherweight Bought this for backpacking hikes as an outer sun-blocking layer, and it is so amazingly light weight. Wore it each hiking day on top of a t-shirt, through sun and rain. There was enough ventilation to keep cool when the sun came out and solid enough to maintain comfort during the days morning and evening cooling time. Would definitely recommend as an ultralight layer to wear hiking...and the pocket is pretty practical to keep small items readily accessible eg. for me that was dangling safety lanyard items ....

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Truly Lightweight Good for walking and can be used for casual. Much lighter than I expected makes it great for packing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has great multiple uses! I bought this shirt to be a layer for hiking and for travel, and it serves both those roles well. But it is also dressy enough to be when traveling and going out! And it is very compact! Great buy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ultralight shirt I was surprised to feel the weight of this shirt. It’s extremely light and felt very strong /durable. It tends to wrinkle in the arms when I roll them up. I also have the silver ridge lite long sleeve shirt and performs very similar. Main difference would be the titanium feels much lighter but doesn’t have breathable slats like the silver ridge. I do recommend this shirt in hot tropical climates (I’m in south east Asia).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light as a Feather As the name says this top is light as a feather. It makes you feel comfortable and secure as the quality is outstanding. Would love to have more colors to buy more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hands down, the best ultralight shirt on the market This is hands down the best ultralight shirt on the market. It weighs less than a t-shirt but functions 10X better. It's great as an under layer in cold weather but breathes so well you can wear it on the hottest of days. Definitely the most versatile piece of clothing in my backpacking wardrobe. I will never hit the trail again without it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight is an Understatement With most Columbia products the quality is exceptional, and the functionality is well thought out. For me, this product did not accomplish the goal I was attempting to accomplish. I think true to the advertising it is designed for hiking. I've never seen a shirt that was lighter...again an advantage for someone hiking. I tend to like a heavier material. The pocket configuration wasn't exactly what I was looking for, and I prefer a button down collar (I missed that in the advertisement). Also, I expected the color to be more 'charcoal' but it is a lighter gray...battleship gray. Anyway, great shirt for someone, not my favorite...but I will keep it and wear it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A truly ultralight shirt Nice feel to the fabric. Expect this will be great for hiking and backpacking, but won’t have a chance to test out until spring. I am 6’1” 215 LB and Large fits well

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Light it Floats Great shirt for hiking - long sleeves protect from sun, while fabric keeps you comfortable. Size will permit a tee-shirt or lightweight short sleeve polo shirt underneath. Lightweight, packs well, and easy to store in backpack. Nylon construction creates a LOT of static during dry weather. Easy to rinse and dry after a day's use, quick and without wrinkles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Shirt Comfortable, SUPER lightweight, and feels almost like I'm not wearing a shirt! My only complaint is I'm not sure how to keep the wrinkles out. Maybe lower the spin-speed on the washer so it doesn't set-in the wrinkles. Great shirt! I'll probably get more in different colors.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sunscreen and sweat wicking. This shirt is very light, so light that it felt like wearing a tank top only. As for durability, not sure since I've only worn it once.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very light shirt This is unlike any shirt I have owned, while its still winter here so haven't used it as intended which is hot weather hiking/camping, am looking forward to using it, Incredibly light think its only 3.2 oz packs lighter and smaller than a standard Tshirt, yet much more functional than a Tshirt thin fabric but appears strong for its weight. packs great, yes it wrinkles when packed but loosens up and unwrinkles itself quickly. should dry quickly which will allow me to rinse it out and dry it out quickly on extended trips

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What an amazing shirt! Super lightweight, paper thin, strong fabric feels superb. Almost mindbogglingly comfortable! The seams are specially sewn for 0% chafing, the buttons are thin yet strong rubber, and the chest zip pocket comes into use for cash or cards or anything smaller than a smartphone. This is a great shirt for hot, humid weather, I noticed the cooling effect not only by sweat wicking away but also in an air conditioned room (nowhere near the coldness of Omni-freeze Zero). This is my new dress shirt because it looks sharp while feeling comfortable. Well worth the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite long sleeve shirt. I really like this product so much that I bought the other two colors of this same feather weight shirt. The other two are blue, dark blue and this one is grey.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The summer hiking shirt The best shirt I can find for backpacking, especially in warm weather. Looks good, too. Feels fantastic to wear, stays cool while protecting from the sun. Extremely light and quick to dry. Does not pick up smell after days of wear in the wilderness. Looks good after being packed, too - does not get so wrinkly that it looks bad. I wear it for all hikes or even simply any time in the sun protected without sunscreen - just love to wear it anytime it feels so good. But, can't be beat for backpacking. The logo decals came off after a couple washings, which is disappointing and dropped a five to a four, but that does not affect the function and the shirt is wearing well otherwise: seems plenty durable under hard use backpacking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ultimate Shirt for Thru Hikers If you want ultralite this is the best shirt I have found. Cool, durable, and though expensive, in my mind worth every penny. I have 2 and alternate them. They dry VERY fast, look great when in town. If you can afford one, go for it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally found a great sunshirt I work as a backpacking guide in Greater Yellowstone and the Grand Canyon. I'm constantly exposed to either the strong desert sun or the searing high altitude sun and I've been looking for an extremely lightweight long sleeved sun shirt for a year and a half now. I've tried several others but finally bought the featherweight long sleeve two weeks ago. Having just finished a 5-day backpacking trip out of Jackson, Wy I can honestly say this is the best sun shirt I've encountered. It's extremely lightweight so I can still feel a breeze even with the sleeves extended. The moment I take my pack off for a break the thin fabric dries so I don't have that clammy feeling and I can avoid chaffing from the backpack that you get with thicker shirts. To top it all off, the mosquitoes can't get through the shirt which was an absolute blessing while camped next to runoff ponds at 9000'. My only con for this shirt is that some of the seam is coming undone in the underarm. It's double stitched though so I don't think it will be an issue. Also, the Columbia logo has already fallen off. These are minor inconveniences for a spectacular garment. I just ordered a second one so that I don't have to find a Laundromat between trips! For size reference, I'm 5'10" and 160 pounds and the medium fits perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Great Great Shirt Lightweight, extremely comfortable and has a very crisp sharp appearance. This shirt is a great lightweight all around outdoor shirt that works in a casual, sport or trail environment. I pair this shirt with a Columbia T-Shirt that provides what I need in the morning and allows me to peel it off as the day warms up.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Poor washing and product is very wrinkled I ordered a large based on previous reviews. Tried it on and was happy I did. The light weight quality is fabulous, but I can't wear it because it is too cold outside. Bought if for wear this coming warmer season in WI. I washed it as it is new and took steps to immediately remove from washer, the wrinkles are terrible. For this price I would have expected more. The fabric manufacturer sold a bill of goods to Columbia. Pathetic. The instructions are to cold iron if needed. I am disappointed I do not want to iron anything. If you feel like I do, do not buy! On a good note... love the color!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Got me from Rim2Rim2Rim I bought this shirt to hike from Rim to Rim to Rim of the grand canyon in. It worked perfectly, it dried very fast, was incredibly light and after 31 hours of hiking had no smell what so ever. The shirt never hung on small branches and it didn't causing any rubbing issues what so ever. This shirt did run a little small in the arms and shoulders compared to my other off shore drag Columbia shirts. I wear a medium in those and would recommend a large in this style. You are really getting a amazing product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So light! This shirt is ridiculously light. I was amazed at how light the fabric is yet strong. I took it into the Uintas backpacking for the first time using the shirt and it kept hordes of mosquitoes from biting through it and breathes well despite the nylon fabric. Perfect for backpacking and even traveling when you need a good looking shirt that can perform in the outdoors.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Performed well for the first trip I bought this shirt specifically for a thru-hike of the OHT. I wore it exclusively during the day and it performed very well. It's lightweight, breathable, dried quickly, and resisted odors well. The only negative thing has been the first time I washed it the decals peeled off. It doesn't affect the shirt's performance, I was just surprised to see them come off so quickly.
