Slot canyons and desert adventures await.

You'll pat yourself on the back when you backpack under the hot sun with the Mountain Hardwear Men's Canyon Button-Down Shirt. While all the campers turn red from sunburn, you'll stay pasty white thanks to the Canyon's Desert Cloth fabric. Desert Cloth also resists wrinkling, dries quickly, and washes with ease. Stealthy stitched-in mesh venting lets air in under the arms and at the back yoke, and roll-up sleeves accommodate the day's highest temperatures.

Inner Goodness

The upper back/trapezoid area has a nice ventilated external flap that displays as a mesh material on the inside.

As you can see, the front pocket is always ready for more pencils..

This vertically extendable / foldable collar saves me money on sunscreen.

Not just any shirt

  • Height: 6'7"
    Weight: 245 lbs

This gussetted, heat dumping feature is good to have. It runs from the armpit down to around my waist. My pits however, outsweat this range.

I would prefer to have this ventilated panel extend across half of my chest on each side. Thats the way I sweat, it may be enough for the average gland.

Not just any shirt

desert wear

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit:True to size
  • Height: 6'0"
    Weight: 145 lbs
    Size Purchased: small

Whether I'm busting sweat as a landscaper or hiking in the hot Sonoran desert this is first choice. Worn these for 4 years and no tears or signs of wear. They get a lot of abuse while landscaping from the many thorny plants yet are still in perfect shape. The large vents breathe better than anything else I've tried. Even my stylish girlfriend borrows these for sun wear.


Love this shirt

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:True to size
  • Height: 6'3"
    Weight: 180 lbs
    Size Purchased: Large

Haven't had the shirt for long so I can't comment on durability yet, but so far I absolutely love this shirt. I'm 6'3 180 lbs and got a size Large. It has a relaxed fit, personally I'd like it just a smidge slimmer and longer, but for me that's true of any shirt that's not in a tall size.

1. Light and breathable. Weighing in at 9 oz it is very packable. The stitched in mesh venting makes a significant difference in ventilation and keeps you cool in the heat.
2. Great material. The desert cloth has a nice feel to it and is very wrinkle resistant. UPDATE 6/2: Material dries impressively fast, goes from sweat drenched to dry in about 10 minutes. Still loving this shirt!
3. Well organized. I love the chest pockets, they're ideal for easy access to a map while backpacking or keeping valuable items like your passport and cash safe and secure, out of a pick pocketers reach while traveling.
4. Extra long collar. The collar has an extra fold in it. When folded down it looks like any traditional collar, but fold it up and you have extra sun protection where you need it most. It's a nice bit of attention to detail.
5. Roll up sleeves. I've had shirts with this function before and just found them frustrating to clasp with one hand, however the button clasp to roll the sleeves up on the Canyon is plain, simple, and easy.

Cons... yeah... not sure on that part yet. If I find any I'll update this review.

Overall while I've only used this shirt a few times but am a big fan so far, I kind of want to pick up another. It is going to be my go to backpacking and traveling shirt. I'll update this review once I feel like I've put it through the wringer, and add pictures in time as well.
