Positive Reviews:

I agree with some other reviewers that the fit can be a bit awkward. In spite of that I recommend this shirt for outdoor activities during the summer months. Using the button to keep the sleeves up can lead to some uneven bunching in the arms, so I just roll them up without buttoning.
It will keep you cool! Pockets work well, dries super fast, blocks the sun.
Compared to other larges I have, this seems a bit snug (doesn't come hardly past my belt). Not so small that I would return it, however.
I bought mine in 2010, so I can't speak to changes made to this model since then.

This is a nice solid shirt for outdoor activities in the summer. fit is true to size chart. The material breathes and vents really well. Sun protection is sold. material dries very quickly. Construction is good with decent seam sealing. Mine has taken minor abrasion without problem but thin shirts like this are really not meant to withstand dragging across rocks much. It excels for hiking, kayaking, general travel and packing and doesn't look bad at the end of the day if you find yourself on main street at a bar. With two of these shirts you are set for a summer. Solid.

Had an earlier version of the Canyon Shirt and I agree with the earlier reviewer that the top pocket is a downgrade for this great shirt. As for the performance of the product itself, I am extremely happy, as I face really hot south Texas summers that can easily span five months. I liked it so much that I now own four of these. As for the fit, I find the newest version to amply cut and actually a little larger in size.
Backcountry had the best pricing by far and their customer service and returns policy can't be beat!

Breathable Sun Protection

This shirt is one of the best inventions sense sliced bread! I love the ability to be able to wear the shirt sleeves rolled up in the early am and roll them down as the sun climbs into the afternoon. Fast drying and easy to care for. I've got three of them, all in different colors!

This is a solid shirt. Only real complaint is if you have bigger arms its a little hard to roll up the sleeves. Other than that good shirt from Mountain Hardwear.

I have used some of these shirt for at least twice a week now for almost 8 years!! It seems like they will last forever.
This is REAL value for money!!

Negative Reviews:

I have two of the previous versions of MHW Canyon Shirt with the last purchased about one year ago for about 10% less than the 45% off sales price and was expecting another excellent shirt. Wrong! There has been a serious reduction in the quality and features of this shirt in the present version being sold. Some of the serious downgrades include many double stitched seams reduced to single stitched, removal of a zipper to right upper chest pocket, moving button for fold up sleeve from external upper sleeve to internal tab that contacts your skin when the sleeve is down, and serious reduction in the size of the back shoulder venting area and air entrance. The changes saved money for the owner (Columbia) but literally on the backs of it's customers. The top open pocket with no closure (previously a zipper) is suitable for a casual shirt only. The material is not particularly any better (or worse) than any low end outdoor shirt made in Vietnam and found in big name discount department stores. 4 stars is very highly overrated for this shirt which I hesitate to call gear. This product is so clearly inferior to the previous version and does not look compatible for anything but light casual wear, it is being returned.

I bought this shirt in 2006 and it quickly became my all time favorite! I have worn it on most of my outdoor adventures ever since, everything from backpacking to rafting to hunting. I've probably worn it at least once a week for the past 7 years. It's now being held together with fabric tape so I bought a couple more over the last few years and like others have said, it has taken a serious decline in quality. The new ones don't have the same "mojo" that the original had. Different fabric, different fit, not as breathable or comfortable. As a result, my old one still gets the most use but his days are numbered and I might just shed a tear when he gets retired and I don't have a suitable replacement. Mountain Hardwear is my favorite brand but I'm very disappointed the the new Canyon.

This shirt has an inside tag and a spare button right where your hipbelt goes. It also has a pocket that goes down to where the hipbelt goes so that if I put something in the pocket it would interfere with my hipbelt. Then there is a pocket in addition to the zip pocket (not mentioned in the specs) that has no velcro stuff or button to shut it. There is a cloth flap that closes it but I can see overtime that this pocket is gonna definitely just start hanging open and no longer lie flush with the shirt. My size is small. Not sure if larger sizes are the same.

Neutral Reviews:

5 starts to the 2010 model for sure. Backpacked in it, and it came back looking like new.
I picked up a pair of the current model since I loved the older one so much, and the fit is a bit off (for me, at least). I'm pretty average size, but the shirt was cut noticeably tighter than before. Other than that, not a big fan at all of the button/zipper-less chest pocket. It hangs open even when there is nothing in there. Don't even want to see how it looks when I decide to use it. Looks sloppy.
Overall, still a good shirt. Esp. if it fits you well. On the plus side, I didn't even realize on the old model that the button on the upper part of the sleeve was to keep it from falling when rolled up. The new one came with a sleeve already rolled and buttoned as a demonstration. Nice surprise! haha
