Style# 1780781


A lightweight and technical fishing-inspired shirt featuring both moisture-wicking and Omni-Shade™ Sun Deflector to ward off the sun’s harmful rays. Whether you’re out on the water or exploring dry land, you’ll be cool, dry, and protected. This comfortable classic is a summer must-have.

This product is crafted of our latest innovative fabric - Omni Shade™ Sun Deflector with UPF 50 sun protection. Those little sun-deflecting dots you see are specially designed to deflect sunlight away from the body so you feel cooler and stay protected. The dots reflect the sun's rays so well that the fabric will shimmer in any light. The stronger the light, the harder it’s working. And the soft, stretchy woven material feels amazing next to your skin while staying light and cool to the touch.

Women’s PFG Solar Shade™ Long Sleeve Shirt is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice top I wore this top while paddle boarding and it was great sun protection while keeping me cool. I'm 5'4", 124 lbs, 34D and it fit a little baggier than other small Columbia tops I own. I like the shiny finish to this shirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Columbia shirt ever I love Columbia gear, but this is hands down my favorite! I just returned from Arizona in July. I hiked in 115 degree weather and then wore it over my swimsuit on a float trip. This is easily my FAVORITE Columbia shirt. The fabric kept me cool, was fine dry or wet and it looked cute too! Love this shirt, please release more colors so I can buy it in every color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun shirt Bought this for a July fishing trip to protect skin from a long day in the sun. The shirt is silky and very unique shiny material. Another review said she wished the shirt was longer, and I have to agree. It's not short, but the longer length would be better. I wear this anytime I want to be protection from the sun. I'm 5'2 115 lbs, I got a size small and it fit well, not tight, if anything a little big, but I would not want something tight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous shirt for the hot AZ sun! I recently went on an overnight paddleboarding/camping trip. The temperature in the AZ sun was upward of 90 degrees. I was a little skeptical about wearing a long sleeve shirt in the sun but this shirt worked great. Normally my shirt would be sticking to me within a few minutes but this shirt kept me at a nice body temperature. I was going to buy a size medium so that I could wear my swimming attire underneath it comfortably but decided to order a size small instead. I was able to wear my swim attire underneath this shirt without it feeling tight. I am 5'5" and 125lbs. I ordered the only color left in stock which was the black/white. It is shiny but it did not bother me and did not distract me while wearing/paddling. Overall I am very happy with this shirt and feel it worked well during my adventure.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fishing shirt Overall liked the product. As mentioned by others it is on the shiny side- has a wet look to it. I personally don’t mind it at all so that wasn’t a deal breaker for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Columbia winner! Love this solar shade shirt. Beautiful colors with an oh so feminine touch. I wore this shirt all day kayaking in the Florida sun and it totally shaded my skin! Hats off to another great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for a hot day! I was a little skeptical at first, I didn't believe that this shirt would actually keep me cool in the Arizona heat, but it does! I took it out on a day we were in the mid 90's and I was in direct sun for most of the afternoon and I stayed pretty cool. The fabric is light and very breathable. It's more light weight and breathable than many of the other athletic shirts I own. The solar shield dots on the exterior of the shirt, actually help reflect the sun off of your skin. I am very pleased with my purchase. Be warned this shirt is very shinny out in the sun. It was a big selling point for me, but I know others may not be as happy with a shimmery shirt! I think the fit of this shirt is great. It ran true to size for me, but is not incredibly fitted. If you are looking for something more fitted size down, but for a relaxed fit order your true size.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty Color I have a long torso, wish the shirt was longer in length.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice but extremely shiny This is a good quality shirt, but the photos don’t accurately depict how incredibly shiny it is. I avoided walking into the sunlight when I tried it on, for fear of blinding myself. I will be exchanging for the less shimmery version.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like it so far I just received my order so will add more and consider changing the rating after I've had it a while. I like the shirt; it will be good for my intended purpose, which is to wear at outdoor track meets over the summer. The tiny reflective dots do give the shirt a shimmer effect, somewhat like a snakeskin. I am cool with that - it's not like every other shirt you see out there. It does run large. According to the size chart I am a size small, but I ordered x-small based on reviews on other sites. I am glad I did - it is still loose on me. A small would have been returned. I bought the green mamba gradient and really like the bright, springy colors. My one complaint is the huge logo down the arm. It also has a small logo on the chest, and that is sufficient. However, if this shirt performs as advertised, I'll overlook the huge logo for now. I'd really like to see a zip-front hooded jacket (sans huge logo) made with this same material, so it could quickly be put on and taken off at race time. My daughter fishes and agrees a light zip-off jacket would be great for fishing, as well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Shimmering Shirt I ordered this top in the Green Mamba color. While the quality and size were great, it had a shimmer/sheen all over it that made it look permanently wet. I felt like a mermaid when I tried it on. I have initiated the return and am even more disappointed that I am being charged $6.00 to send back a shirt that looks like a wet suit.
