Get techy when you head to the mountains.

This shirt is great for hot and humid. It has very good wicking properties and helps keep you cool in the heat. The UV protection is a nice bonus for those times out in the sun. Would recommend to anyone. Great value.
Great for Anything, really
I've had one of these shirts for several months, and I just got another one about a month ago. If you want a shirt that you can wear in any kind of outdoor situation, this is it. Since it's synthetic it won't stretch out or wear out easily, and you can wear it a few days in a row without doing it in. I highly recommend these shirts!
Got a large in black. Fit is loose, material is very breathable and quick drying, my favorite shirt to wear on hot days. The only issue i have is that i only own one... Thatll change soon.
Favorite Shirt EVER!
I have 8 white shirts that I use for my everyday undershirts and four other colors that I use for other assorted uses... This shirt is a true multitool! I wear these shirts everyday as an undershirt. I wear the other colors as my single top layer for backpacking. They perform great AND look great! What else do you need?
Hiking in my favorite shirt ever...
To give you an idea of size, I am wearing a Medium in this picture...
This shirt seemed to be thicker than any other 100% polyester shirt I have ever owned. This can be a good thing or a bad thing depending on how you look at it. It seemed to wick okay, but since it was so thick, dried slower, was warmer, but was also more durable The stink, still poly-present, but less than some. The fit was less athletically cut than some, but true to size. Good for hiking in non-extreme temps, bad for running

I wore one of these for most of a 55 mile backcountry trip, and I have no complaints. No stink, fast drying, and no discomfort with a heavy pack.
omni-dry mt tech
I've bought several different wicking Ts but Columbia is by far the best. wicks well, wears better and lasts a long time. I have 3 so far and I use them for every thing from trearing up the trail on my MT bike to Yoga class
Bought some Columbia, North Face, and Mountain Hardware shirts, and these and the North Face were very similar and both very good. Comfortable, nice feel, dries quickly, seems durable. It's everything you'd want it to be. Would definitely buy more of these.
I'm going on a long backpacking trip and...
I'm going on a long backpacking trip and need my gear to be as light as possible. Does anyone know how much one of these T-shirts weight?
Hey Josh. I poked around and couldn't find the weight of the shirt, even on Columbia's website. I would, however, suggest avoiding synthetic shirts unless you're going to have the opportunity to wash them. They will get smelly really fast. Might I suggest something made of Merino wool instead? Icebreaker in particular makes fantastic shirts that won't smell nearly as bad and are super light. Check 'em out.
great fitting shirt
I'm 6'4" and got the large. It fits perfectly. Not too long or short. It wicks moisture but can get smelly even though they claim its antimicrobial.
good shirt, but not great
haven't worn it doing anything too sweaty, but it is more comfortable than a lot of the other tech tees. seems sturdy enough to hold up to a pack and/or climbing/hiking. the fit is right on, perfect length...i often have a problem with them being too short.
may increase the rating once i see how well it wicks and dries
