Men's Featherweight Hike™ Long Sleeve Shirt is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 57.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent sun shirt I didn't think it was possible to make a long sleeve shirt this light, it's incredible. It's a great shirt for overnight backpacking: sweat dries quick and the shirt doesn't smell. Even in the heat of summer in NH I wasn't too hot in it. Only complaint is the stitching on the buttons is already starting to wear out, and I've only worn it on about 5 trips.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent backpacking shirt Very pleased with this shirt. So pleased, that I now own two of them. This shirt is amazingly light, breathes very well, and doesn't hold odor much. Great for sun protection without making your overheat. I have used this on backpacking trips, camping trips, and on a 10-day sailing trip in the Caribbean. If you need a super light button-down shirt, you can't go wrong with this one. One note, I did have to size down. Normally I wear a medium in most shirts. For this one, I ended up going with a small.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product for specific people and use This is a fantastic product! Being on sale, this garnered my attention and I ordered it. "Love at first wear", but I required the next size up. The shirt is fantastically light. Great for hiking or being active, it is extremely lightweight. This is great for laying in cold weather. If you are "trend or style" influenced, then "Street wear" has certain limitations. This may be a small issue, but the yellow fluorescent zipper pocket stands out. Overall, I love this wonderful lightweight shirt!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ultra light weight summer shirt Bought this shirt to take to the Utah desert. In 100 degree temps, the shirt stayed cool and kept me out of the sun. Very happy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shirt The shirt is breathable and does a great job at keeping the sun from heating you up too much. Wore it all day managing young campers and stayed cool in 90 degree weather (and I get hot easily). Others thought I looked too bundled up for the weather but I felt absolutely comfortable in the shirt. The shirt dried very quickly when wet as well! Went from soaked to dry in about 15 minutes in the following weather conditions: 86F, sunny, 10mph winds, 45% relative humidity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Hiking Shirt My favorite summer hiking shirt. Many times the areas I hike have a lot of brush so I like a long sleeve shirt to keep my arms from being scratched. This shirt does that and it does it well. It appears to be pretty rugged. It is made of some kind of rip-stop material and doesn't tear. It weighs 3.5 oz which is practically nothing. It is unlined and sweat just evaporates immediately so you don't feel clammy. Took the kids to an amusement park with water rides and got pretty wet. It dried in about 5 minutes. Probably too lite for winter without some additional layers but it is the perfect summer shirt to keep off the brambles or if you don't like slathering sun block all over your arms.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Favorite Shirt Outside in the heat, humidity and sun all day, its hard to find a comfortable shirt, this is the one. Light and airy. Can barely even notice its there. Keeps you cool and sheltered from the sun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light this shirt is extremely light weight and very comfortable. Keeps the sun and bugs off but not hot to wear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very light material I like this shirt a lot, but I worry about it being able to tear to easily. Time will tell and Columbia makes great products so it is a wait and see. I will say I live in Vegas and it’s the perfect shirt for summer when I have to wear a collar. Light and airy and ready for an adventure now, not just casual wear around town.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, so good...still needs testing I just received this shirt and WOW it is super lightweight (exactly what I wanted) and comfortable too. I am a little worried about how it will hold up in the elements and with a pack on a long hike. Afraid my pack traps might tear the fabric bc its really amazingly lightweight fabric. I will update the review, once I test it a bit more. I typically wear a large t-shirt but ordered a medium because this style shirt seems too baggy on me in a large. The medium fits well in the body, but is just a hair shorter than id like in the arms, but I plan to keep this size since I will likely be rolling the sleeves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Florida Shirt This is a perfect shirt keeps you cool and protected. It breathes amazing and is so light you don't event feel it. I got one and will defiantly be getting more very happy with the shirt. It fits true to size and very comfortable to wear all day.
Date published: 2018-05-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Shirt for High Adventure The shirt is fitted but not tight. It is very flattering on my "huskier" form and works exceptionally well when wearing a loaded backpack. The fabric does not retain moisture or smells, even after days on a hot trail. The shirt definitely looks more stylish than traditionally cut trail shirts. I only wish it were offered in more colors!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I wanted Great shirt. Ultra light and comfortable. I’m always looking for good gear to fish in and provide sun protection. This fits the bill.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Runs small Nice quality but it runs a bit small. I ordered 3 different shirts in the same size. The Feather weight hike was the smallest. I ordered an XL, it fit more like a L.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from VERY VERY LIGHTWEIGHT Item is true to picture and very lightweight indeed. On the other hand, it is very thin so I am not sure how well it will hold up to washing but so far the wearer is loving it :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceed expectations This thing is light! It seriously ways next to nothing. Will be a great summer hiking shirt to cover up for bugs without overheating. Fit is true to size, but not a slim or fitted cut. I usually wear a medium, and this fits great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything you need, and nothing more "Feels like I'm wearing... nothin' at all!" This is my PCT shirt. I'm going to be wearing one shirt, for 4 to 6 months, and I pick this one. Fits me perfect, I am a skinny-tall guy (160lb, 6') and this shirt falls where I want it too. I hate hiking shirts with a million pockets that I never use. One is all I need and it being zippered is even better. A feature that I would say is missing that I do like on other hiking shirts are the attachments to rolling the sleeves up high but honestly, you can still achieve this my rolling the sleeves up with care. I would rather have the weight savings than a bunch of features that I can do without. Since I will be wearing this for the PCT and planning on jumping in strangers cars for a hitch, the anti-microbial is a nice feature for the people sitting next to me. I look forward to using it more!

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 5 out of 5 by from Something new My first purchase from the Columbia Titanium line and my wife loves it. It is light weight will be good for travels and hikes. Went back to take another, different color of course!

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 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 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.
