Description

Everything you need to get through the crossing.

Before you depart for the border crossing, make sure that you're wearing the Columbia Silver Ridge Long-Sleeve Shirt. If the guard looks at you quizzically after you produce your passport, roll up the Silver Ridge's sleeves and be thankful for the shirt's Omni-Wick technology that helps evaporate sweat away from your body. And if the border guard starts asking a few too many questions, you can suddenly ‘remember’ the extra fifty you cached in one of the front flap pockets.
  • A blend of fibers wick sweat to keep you cool when the summer sun is cranking
  • UPF-30-rated sun protection shields you skin from the sun's harsh rays
  • Roll-up sleeve design features button-tab holders for a relaxed look and greater functionality

Decent Shirt

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I have two of these shirts for hiking. They work well...do what they are intended to do which is protect from the sun, and keep me cool even with the sleeves rolled down. Construction of the Silver Ridge shirts do not seem to be as bomb proof as the Silver Ridge Shorts. They are light weight, dry quickly, and keep you cool.....what more could you ask for. These did not wow me like some other gear that I have....which leaves me with wanting to try other shirts. All in all....a good shirt, especially when you can find them on sale.

Good Shirt

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small

I bought it for my PCT thru-hike this year. I need it to hold up to daily trail abuse, including a backpack. I think it'll work for the purpose. I ordered the medium size - I'm 5'11" and 172 lbs with 34 waist. I found it a bit tight under the arms, so returned it for a large. I plan to wear a tech weight merino ss pullover underneath on a daily basis.

Good looking, quick drying and soft

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

Wore the shirt extensively through the Central American rain forest.
It looks great, dries quickly and best of all- doesn't feel thick and nylony like some other similar products.
There are two small vertical ventilation strips.
Buttoned up, the sleeves are still below the elbow.
Regarding sizing- I'm 5"11 (1.8m), 185lb (85kg), athletic build. I got the medium which was mostly a good fit but was a little bit too narrow around the upper back.

Keeps you cool

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

This shirt seems to regulate core temperature pretty well, keeps you from sweating too much in hot weather, dries pretty quickly. It looks really nice as well.

A downside is the texture of the face material, which seems a bit scratchy.

All-in-all a great shirt for summer hiking, fishing, paddling, lounging

Great in the Heat!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large

Great feel to these shirts. I was just in 100 degree temps and the shirt actually made me more comfortable. They do wrinkle bad when packed unfortunately and need a little ironing or it looks like you slept in the shirt. The only reason I did not give it five stars.
They do run big for me, I usually wear an extra large and had to return to get large. Backcountry is of course great about returns!!!

The "Tech Specs" list the UPF rating at 50. The "Description" section lists the UPF rating at 30. Which is correct?

Responded on

BC may have confused the shirt with the convertible pants. The shirt has UPF 50, the pants UPF 30.

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!

Almost Perfect

Have last years model (the one Karl G reviews) and just got the newer issue. They fixed every complaint of his, and then some. Button is hidden on the sleeve, and works perfectly (never really had a big problem the other way, but the update is a plus). The venting is no longer an open mesh panel that you can get caught on the wrong side of (hated that as well). Also added an extending flap for additional neck coverage on the collar, shaped the cuffs for better hand coverage, and tacked down the outside edge of the pockets where they poked out on the last years version.
Super lightweight and quick drying. The fabric is a really soft texture, feels great. It looks good in the office and works in the backcountry. Will be getting a couple more.

To get 5 stars, columbia needs to add a bit of stretch, either in all of the fabric, or maybe just in specific panels. Add a odor/antimicrobial finish to the shirt. Id prefer a small snap instead of the velcro on the pockets

Nice, Simple, made for larger blokes

The Review by Karl G must be for the 2011 style shirt which has the button on the sleeve strap. The 2012 fixed this problem and put the button on the arm where it is covered by a small flap of fabric to protect the button. for the price this is a great shirt definately the lowest cost option for a good outdoor shirt with roll up sleeves. I have a 2011 small and childs XL as well as a 2012 small. I am 5ft8 and 135lbs. My only real complaint is that these shirts are not made for people with an athletic or slim build. Definately designed for the "normal American" The kids XL is slightly too small and the 2011 Small is definately too large in the body, length is fine though. The 2012 Version small is quite a bit smaller and better fitting though could have a more athletic fit. I used these shirts while traveling through India this may where it averaged 110 degrees F almost everyday. The wicking and quick dry ability is awesome, they stood up to quite a bit of abuse, the only damage was the 2012 edition is permanently crumpled in one area where the waist belt on my heavy pack was for quite a few days. All in all good, not the best but probably the best value unless you find something else on sale.

Works for me

I'm a professional photographer and this shirt was a great purchase for me. Lightweight, trim fit, and great sun protection.

Simple favorite

This shirt was a last minute add for my recent trip to the Sierras and was worth every ounce, of which there aren't many.

I'm not sure what another review is talking about having a tough time taking the shirt on and off: I was in and out of this thing jumping into lakes and creeks to take the edge off the unexpected heat and never had a hard time getting back into the shirt.

Also, I think the shirt looks really cool and I like wearing it out when I can sneak it by my fashionista wife. :)

Great Shirt

I have used this shirt for backpacking, climbing, and casual wear. The fabric is as you would expect from a shirt in this style; superbly comfortable, breaths well, dries quickly, and is very durable. Even after a week of warm weather backpacking the shirt picks up a little odor that is easily cleaned and will not hold on to stench as some shirts will.

The roll up sleeves are incredibly easy to use and convenient and you totally forget about it when it is either rolled up or down in the long sleeve position; the inner retaining strap and button on the sleeve cause no discomfort and are unnoticeable in regular use.

I am not certain what the other reviewer is showing on this shirt because there is no button on the retaining strap for the sleeve and the mesh backing is very well attached to the shirt and I have had no trouble putting the shirt on partially buttoned.
