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.

Positive Reviews:

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

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.

Nice shirt. The chest pockets are permanently secured on one side so only good for small items. On the other hand, those items are not apt to fall out.The fabric feels a little "synthetic." Will have to see how it feels when worn. In the meantime, it washes nicely. I intend to hand wash this shirt in a sink and was looking for a fast drying shirt. I think this will work out well. I ordered Abyss and expected Black. Instead, this color is a navy blue. Disappointing as it looks black in the photo and I don't wear blue as a basic color. Did not compare it to black pants until after it was washed. Too bad.

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!

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. :)

Chris Rikli at on 07/15/2012

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!!!

Excellent shirt

I used the white shirt hiking 16 miles on a very sunny day and was very pleasantly surprised at how light and effective it was at blocking the sun. I tried folding the collar up for sun protection on my nech, but it didn't stay up. Overall a great shirt, and I'm very pleased with it.
hiker at Campmor on 07/07/2012

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

Aaron C at on 11/27/2013
Great shirt! I like the style, in the cooler mornings you keep it long sleeve, by the afternoon roll them up. When the temp is in the 40's it is warmer than Cotten, the technology is great!

So Far So Good

Just tried on the shirt. Bought for a safari. Think it will be great. Fit is trimmer and more hip than others I have tried. Think I am really going to like this shirt.

Neutral Reviews:

Just about everybody makes a shirt like this and what separates the merely adequate from the truly good frequently boils down to the details.
This shirt features a pretty good fabric which breathes well, dries fast, is constructed of rip stop nylon and offers sun shielding and decent wicking ability. Its styling is subdued and nice enough for a business casual wear.
The devil is in the details for this whole class of shirts and two design details make this shirt a casual use only piece. Most of these shirts in this class feature a mesh yoke section across the back covered by a panel for breathability, venting and sun blocking. In other shirts this multi panel design is secured. On this shirt the inner mesh panel is not secured across the bottom. So? So, if you try to just unbutton the neck buttons and go to slip this shirt on over your head about 80 percent of the time your arms will be attempting to slide under the mesh panel and not down the sleeves. Despite numerous tries, you will give up and totally unbutton the shirt and put it on and then rebutton it. Not a big deal in a casual piece but a PITA if you are attempting to take it off quickly, put it back on quickly, doing it in the dark, etc. You know, all the sort of stuff you might want to do using a piece actually day to day in a back country setting.
Detail two that differs on this shirt from competitive offerings is the roll up sleeve holders. On most shirts of this design there is a button on the outside upper sleeve and a strap inside the sleeve with a button hole. You roll up the sleeve, flip up the strap and button in. Quick and easy. This shirt features a tab on the upper outer sleeve. The holding strap inside the sleeve features a button on the inside of the strap and button hole. After you roll up the sleeve you have to pull out the holder slide it through the tab, fold it over and button it to itself. An annoyance and it adds some time but the real problem with this design is when the sleeve is down and the strap on the inside now has a button that hits just about where your arm folds so that anytime you are actually using your arms for climbing, working with tools, walking with poles, etc. that button starts attacking the inside of your elbow joint. Not a problem if you leave he sleeves constantly up ( but then you could just get the short sleeve version) or if you are not really using your arms much with the sleeves down.
In summery, because of the restrictions above this piece is best suited for casual travel, business casual, and spends a fair amount of it's time in my closet. I'll occasionally use it day hiking or kayaking when the sleeves will be up all day or pack it for a family vacation. My go to piece offer none of these draw backs. If you want a pice for technical and casual wear you might want to take a look at comparable pieces from Arc, MHW, TNF and others.

Karl G. at on 07/05/2012

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.

Fiddly collar and wrinkles everywhere

I bought this for a 6-week dirt-motorcycle camping trip. I also took the Columbia Silver Ridge pants which functioned great the whole time. The shirt, however, has an extra flap on the back of the collar, perhaps for more sun protection. Whatever the purpose of the flap it sometimes deploys itself when I'd rather have the collar look normal. The Silver Ridge shirt also remained preposterously wrinkled the whole trip and I mailed it home after about 5 weeks. The Silver Ridge pants would shake out their wrinkles and look fine while the "matching" shirt needed a laundry to be half presentable.
