An excellent moisture-wicking T-shirt given the typical price one can find these at. The polyester knit fabric is very soft, comfortable and light. Flat seams add to the comfort.
The shirt always feels comfortably dry to wear...not sure how (or whether) Columbia's anti-microbial treatment actually works, but the shirt definitely seems to resist accumulating bad body odors when compared to similar fabrics (e.g. more so than heavier SPF50 "non-titanium" version of this item).

I recently took a couple of these on the Tour du Mont Blanc, a 105 mile circular trail around the base of Mont Blanc. I would wear these for 3 days and wash them out.
They wicked well, held up well, and did not stink. They also had a very cotton like feel, and were therefore very comfortable to wear. They have a very nice appearance, and the fabric has a nice two tone weave to it.
This is what I plan to wear on all future hikes. Most synthetic tees don't feel as nice, and have a slick look and feel. The Mountain Tech tee is much better than any other performance tee I have ever used.
