Deep Water Color Not As Expected
- Fit: Runs large
I ordered the Deep Water color that appears to be a fairly deep blue on my monitor. Deep Water - deep blue. Sounds logical. Deep Water is instead a middle toned teal and not deep blue at all. I initially planned to return it but, since the company charges the customer $6.99 for return shipping, and, the color is not bad...but not what I expected, I will keep it. If the item is not as described on the seller's website, the seller should pay the return shipping like Amazon does. If you like teal (more like a forest than water), this is a good shirt for you. If you're looking for a deep blue color, don't select Deep Water.
Great lightweight shirt
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Large
I bought this shirt in a large. It fits really well (I have broad shoulders) and is super comfy. I've only worn it once at this point, but it breathes well in 85 degree heat.
Light-weight shirt for the hot days
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: Runs large
- Size Bought: Medium
I bought my Columbia Silver Ridge Lite in "Steel" and sized medium. I'm an avid paddler, lift on a regular basis, and run 15-20 miles a week, so I'm broad-shouldered with a lean/athletic build. I wear large in most brands but medium in this shirt has the length of a large and fits the shoulders like a large.
So far, I've worn this shirt out around town and for hiking up and down beach trails. Even with its darker color, the vents and lightweight fabric kept me from overheating in the mid 90 degree weather in the Hampton Roads area. The sleeves have a buttoned keeper to keep them rolled up, but I wish they kept the sleeves rolled above the elbow instead of just at the elbow (a personal preference, not a problem with the shirt itself).
It has been thrown in the washer and dryer a few times and hasn't shown any wear. It hasn't gotten wrinkled so far with me taking it out of the dryer while warm.
I like the look of the shirt and my wife loves the color. The vents and overall look of the Silver Ridge Lite is more subtle than my Columbia PDF button-down shirts. That subtlety makes it a nicer shirt for wearing around town on a hot day without looking like you should be on the water fishing.
What's the weight on a size medium?
Derek, the weight on the size medium is 10.8 oz.
