Nice versatile synthetic shirt that dries quickly, works in cool or warm weather.
- Quick drying
- Loose fit may not please everyone
Really like the Columbia All Trail for a number of uses.
First, it works well in warm weather when you want sun protection. I get laughed at sometimes by other kayakers and fishermen when it's hot and I'm in long sleeves, but safety before style baby.
It's a quick drying synthetic (polyester) that handles moisture well. It also works well as a colder weather layer. It's very comfortable as a base layer, and I also wear it solo for casual wear when the weather is conducive (cool but not too cold). The shirt looks really nice with jeans or khakis even though it's a technical shirt, so it's pretty versatile.
Lastly, since it's synthetic you don't have to worry about shrinkage, which is always a concern for me because my arms are long and many shirts end up looking like Frankenstein's jacket after a few rounds in the dryer. The cut on this is pretty generous, not athletic at all so don't upsize. If you like an athletic fit this won't be for you.
Great shirt that can handle lots of different scenarios, really dig it.
