Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shirt at a Great Price This shirt fits true to size chart. The material is thin yet, not too thin, it allows your skin to breathe. Perfect fishing, summertime shirt. The shirt allows you to move without losing it's fit, the shirt doesn't ride up. Hang to dry after washing, and you will be happy with the durability of this shirt for a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great technical shirt at a great price I own a number of these shirts because I just can't seem to stop buying them! I wear them as undershirts during the winter and as t-shirts during the summer. As others have said, they run a little small so order a size up. At $15, you can't find a better deal.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good exercise shirt Exercise daily and always have sweaty clothes These shirts do wick away sweat as advertised and reduce the need to wash them every day. The Salvador sourced material is slightly more comfortable than others but I don't know what the difference is. The black color runs even smaller than the gray. These are great shirts

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Comfortable I really like these shirts for their good size fitting and the fact that the color won't fade out like cotton does. They do a good job keeping cool in the summer, and as a base layer in the winter, they won't accumulate perspiration.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy for hikers or hunters Bought a couple of these shirts they feel great fit well and are very durable Im a big game hunting guide in Alaska and I hike a lot and climb a lot of mountains these help keep my sweat off me and doesn't hold any Oder. They hold up well With my frame back pack other shirts get worn out on the shoulders when carrying a lot of weight these have had no problems! I give them 5 stars!! You should buy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from True to Picture I ordered the Hyper Blue shirt and it is right on the money in color, I am also a heavy set guy and the XXL fits me great it definitely does not fit small like suggested.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all around shirt Whether I'm wearing one of these shirts to teach Phys. Ed. in the gym, coach, hike, or casually around town, I'm always comfortable in these shirts...I have 7 colors! Favorite shirts I own.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This product's fabric did not hold up in active wear. I bought this shirt in April for use in hiking and backpacking. The thin fabric did not hold up at all and was a disappointment for the normally good quality Columbia clothing. I used the shirt on several day hikes over the summer, and then on a 2 day backpack trip last week. The fabric had wear holes on the back where it contacted the soft nylon pack, and both sleeves had wear holes on their seams and ends. The shirt wasn't abused or laundered incorrectly to damage the fabric. I have done a lot of hiking and backpacking and never seen anything like this on any shirt. I just returned the shirt, so we'll see what happens.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Same Quality as Previous Versions I have been buying Mountain Tech shirts for 6+ years and wear these on daily basis. Latest purchase of 10 shirts is not the same quality I have come to expect over the years from Columbia. I suggest Columbia re-evaluate their decisions to make small cut costing changes on their product considering the shirts are still offered at a relatively high price to competing T-Shirts. May reconsider next purchase from Columbia.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality, loose fitting shirt Fits loosely which is rare in an athletic shirt like this. Order a size up as it is larger than your regular size. Also a bit thicker than something like UA, so can be worn for more than just workouts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from has the fabric changed? I have worn this type of Columbia t-shirt for some years. The 3 I just received feel like a thinner cloth, maybe less durable. Has the type of fabric changed? In general these shirts seem to hold up well about 3 years, which is great. I am wondering if the shirts in my recent order will do as well

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love 'em This is a great shirt. They travel well in the suitcase and wear even better. I bought 4 of them and wore one most every day hiking around the southwest and and Pacific northwest while on a 3 week vacation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mens Mountain Tech Shirt My husband loves it because it is so light and always looks great even when you are hot and sweating.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from snags like cheap panty hose These are great looking shirt in the store. I bought one of each color. Put them in the real world and you have a snagged , ugly shirt in no time. I have similar shirts by other brands that have no snags after 2 years of use. very disappointed

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Shirt is rockin'! Columbia does not disappoint. Again, fits right out of the (recycled, yeah!) box. Comfort all day. Cool and dry. Wicks perspiration away. Nice combo in the summer and hot inside work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Hiking shirt This shirt was an athelitic fit so a bit tight but did it's job well in terms of drying quickly and keeping me comfortable while outside.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good t-shirts The first variation of this shirt (titanium) was the best. This version is almost as good. It fits the way a performance t-shirt should. The Large fits fine for someone 5'10 & 175 lbs. I prefer the performance fit to the "regular" fit. I find the regular fit larges to be too big and the mediums too small. As long as Columbia makes this shirt I will buy them. I have some in storage so I have extras when they are no longer manufactured.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Form and function Shirt is nice and lightweight. Use it all the time by itself or underneath other shirts. I was a little surprised by the color as it wasn't accurately represented above (Yellow Curry).

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Snags easy I purchased two of these shirts at the same time to wear as a hot weather wicking shirt. The shirt wicks as is expected, however it will develop an odor rather quickly. The shirts also snag fairly easy and within a few trips out with the family had snags in both shirts. The shirt material makes the snags show very easily. I eventually regulated both the shirts to my gym shirts, and they have served in that role very well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Men's mountain tech t shirt Wish you still carried the titanium t-shirts as they ran true to size, lasted a long time and resisted snags. The Mountain tech shirts run small and have a hand that snags and pills.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too Small The Large was not large. It seems to be made as a small, slightly tight base layer. I had to give it to my 13 year old instead of dealing with the hassle and expense of sending it back.
Date published: 2012-08-26
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Disappointed! I bought two of these shirts recently because I wanted something I could just wear around that would wick away sweat. From a functional standpoint the shirt did the job...no sweat and it is nice enough I can wear around casually. However, after a few washes the shirt starting getting those little balls all over it. This is something I have experienced with very low quality and much less expensive shirts. I would strongly recommend you NOT buy this shirt because after a few washes it's not worth wearing.
