I bought a few of these shirts on sale and I love them. They keep me cool on hot summer hikes and they dry very fast if they get wet. They fit well and are very comfortable. They are great for layering as well.

I bought a few of these shirts over the past couple years because they fit well and they are rugged. They don't develop holes where my backpack rubs on it like other shirts.

The shirt dries out within 15 minutes if wet. Just hang on a camp clothesline or lay on a rock in the heat. Very breathable material and doesn't smell bad after a few days of hiking like other clothing material does.This shirt is good for layering on top of base layers too, roomy shirt. I found these actually at TJmax for super cheap. I have light pink, light green, and blue. 

Columbia makes several different kinds of T-shirts for hiking and this one I like the best. I did buy two other Columbia shirts last year that aren't the Omni line and paid full price $36 a piece for them and they had holes in the front right where my hip belt buckles on my back pack from friction over time I guess. This particular line of outdoor clothing is a little more durable. I managed to find the whole Omni line at TJmax on different occasions. 

There is Omni Freeze, Omni Shield, Omni Heat, and Omni Wick and you can actually wear them all layered if you wanted to. I layer with other brands, but I will do a review on the others too. I have an Omni Shield jacket that worked well in high gusty winds on the Olympic NP High Divide Trail. The Omni Heat base layer top and bottoms are super warm on cold weather nights backpacking.
