Great shirt
June 09, 2011

This is a very comfortable shirt, breathes really well. It was well worth the money. It does fit large, I had to exchange it for a smaller size after receiving my first shirt.

Does Its Job
December 03, 2012

Bought a couple of these to take on a five week round-the-world trip and they worked great. The "mositure management" system worked as advertised and made it easy to wash the shirt in the sink and have it dried by morning. Like most Columbia products, the fit is blocky, so if you like the trim/tailored fit look, look elsewhere.

Pros: Performance, Ease of use, Great value

Excellent Quality, Superior Fit
February 22, 2011

The Elm Creek Polo is the answer to my long search. The sleeves are long, but not too long and fall nicely at the elbow. I like the fact that the sleeves are hemmed and not banded. The shirt has both a sporty and professional look. The fabric is nice and lightweight without being shiny. Many of the shirts made from similar materials/blends are too shiny and end up looking like like they should be partnered with a leisure suit instead of a pair of jeans or dockers. The fit is roomy--but not baggy, and true to fit. I plan to purchase more of these.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value

Over-branded shirt
October 17, 2011

The shirt does NOT resemble the photos. Ordered the bright Merlot/Wine-like "Elderberry" color and basically received a dark purple-esque maroon color. In addition, the chest features a large bright white "Columbia" embroidery which is not pictured and the placket buttons themselves are imprinted not once, but twice with white uppercase text: "COLUMBIA COLUMBIA". Tacky sans-serif font at that. The pique texture of the shirt is decent; not very soft, but not so rough as to require an undershirt to always be worn with it. In total, an over-branded and over-priced shirt. Know you're only buying this polo for the Columbia name or if you don't mind non-discreet advertising.

Pros: button colors match shirt, Cons: too much unremoveable branding
