LABwrote a review of Columbia Tamiami II Short-Sleeve Shirt - Women's on June 11, 2012
I did not know Columbia made these shirts until I saw someone wearing them. They aren't easy to find in stores. Luckily I was able to try one on in the store, as many people complain about sizing issues. I wear a medium t-shirt and having a post-baby pooch, I hate things being tight around my belly. The medium fits very well! I have gotten many compliments on the fit and color. The shirt itself is very comfortable. It is definitely fitted and doesn't look "manly." I typically don't spend this much on an article of clothing, but I knew it would get a lot of wear and last a long time. You do have to be careful about washing it with any velcro, as it will cause pulls in the fabric. My husband has had several of the men's version for a few years and they have held up fine washing and drying normally. The collar does stand up rigidly, but I have solved that by just undoing the velcro at the edge of the collar to make it lay down. The snaps are great. Some people have complained about the pockets, but I haven't had any issues. They do not wrinkle easily and dry quickly. They offer excellent sun protection, too. I would definitely purchase it again!
