Columbia Silver Ridge Shirt Rocks!

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I own two Silver Ridge shirts and have worn them on over 250 miles of backpacking trips in the last three years. These shirts are absolutely great during fall alpine backpacking trips. When temps very from mid-40's to mid-60's you can use various configurations of sleeves and front buttons to adapt to the environment. Each shirt has "pilled" a little where mesh from backpack hip belt has rubbed over time. At 8.5 oz (size medium), the Silver Ridge long sleeve is only slightly heavier than a t-shirt. Highly recommended!
