Feels like you're not wearing a shirt at all
December 05, 2010
The first time I put this shirt on it felt like I wasn't wearing a shirt at all. It's very light and very soft. I own two of these shirts, in different colors, both are sized medium. However, one shirt is noticeably larger than the other; they still both fit well though. I don't know if the antimicrobial is a function of the fabric or some sort of spray on treatment. I was able to wear it for a week on a hiking trip before it started to smell, but after a couple of washes it starts to smell only after a day or two of use. Excellent moisture wicking, and ridiculously quick drying time. My only complaint is that it seems to be easily damaged. When wearing a pack with this shirt, make sure that there isn't anything rough or pointy in contact. As you move and the pack shifts around with each step it will rub on the shirt and cause it to wear.Pros: Performance, Cons: Wears quickly, Cost
December 23, 2010
I've used this shirt as a baselayer while skiing and hiking ithis winter and it is comfortable and wicks well. I'm thinking about getting a couple more shirts.Pros: Build quality, Performance
November 17, 2010
Before I purchased this Tee I always read reviews. The reviews I read at Altrec were very helpful then I went to the Columbia website and there pretty much every review I read was complaining about how undersized the Tee was. One review said, it was about 2 sizes too small. With that in mind I decided to give it a go and order a Tee in 4X. I'm 6'1" 210 lbs., and normally wear a 2X. When I received the Tee I put it on and to my surprise it fit perfectly. It's a great first layer for cold weather. I like this Tee so much that I'm going to order a couple more. I would definitely recommend this product, just keep the sizing in mind. I still can't believe I'm wearing a 4X Tee. Good Luck.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use
Quality shirt, does the job
September 29, 2010
The Columbia Titanium Omni-Dry Mountain Tech Short Sleeve Tee is a high-quality t-shirt that does exactly what it is supposed to do. It wicks away moisture fast and effectively and it is extremely comfortable. You should have a few of these in your possession.Pros: Build quality, Performance, Great value
March 23, 2011
Easy to pack. Fast to wash in sink and hang to dry on extended trips. Usually wear one and carry 2 on extended motorcycle touring trips. Great shirts.
Buy 2-3, you'll be glad you did.
November 10, 2010
This is a great, stylish looking shirt that fits great and breathes well. The material isn't too thin or thick, it's just perfect. It's a perfect weight and works for easy layering. I wear mine underneath shirts to the office and don't get hot. It also works great at the gym. Obviosuly it'll work fine for anything outdoors as well.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
Back country, casual, or dress
December 09, 2010
This is my favorite t-shirt. I wear it on back country hikes, for casual outerwear and it also works well in the right color combination under an open collar dress shirt for work. I find it to be more comfortable with a softer and cooler feel than other wicking type shirts. I have a dozen or so of them in a variety of colors and would reccomend them to others.
It's Not Wicked, but OK
June 12, 2009
Love the Mountain Hardwear Wicked tee, so that's the baseline here. This Columbia is OK fabric but does not breathe as well. Body is long and the neckline is too large and sloppy. Columbia logo too obnoxious. So, if you have a large (18" or above) neck and moderate climate and don't mind a big logo, this could work out.
August 29, 2009
Good weight, good feel, and really good fit--this shirt is rugged and smooth at the same time. Wears very comfortable--great value!
December 01, 2010
Must have shirt for hiking and birding in Costa Rica. Wicks dry quickly, good color assortment for birding, and good fit. I'm 5'9" and 170 lbs and the large size fits perfectly. The sun protection is a bonus.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Great value
December 12, 2010
This shirt is the best of its kind I have purchased so far. Definitely will buy more. Altrec service is great as always. Thank you Altrec.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use
Unbelievably fast shipping!
August 13, 2009
I bought this shirt online to replace a brand new one that was stolen out of my luggage during a trip to South America. The shipping was incredibly fast. The shirt is great. I am 5'-7" and 175lbs and athletic build. The medium was actually a perfect fit.
You can't go wrong with this shirt
December 06, 2010
Wears the best ever, wicks great, cool when its hot, and great to backpack and hike in. I love these shirts and now have 6 short sleeve and 4 long sleeve and will definitely be buying more. They are also great looking to where you can wear them with dress slacks going out to dinner. You can't go wrong with Columbia Tee's!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
May 19, 2009
You never know for sure when you take a chance on a product for the first time...this shirt is very comfortable, true to size, lightweight and dries quickly. I will be purchasing more colors. I suggest Columbia offers the short and long sleeve with a chest pocket option as well.
Excellent summer camping shirt
April 26, 2010
I have only had it for a few months. I use these shirts as undershirts, for jogging, and camping in the summer.
Quality of these shirts has deteriorated
March 14, 2011
They have changed the material of these shirts. I compared them to the ones that I bought over a year ago and the material has changed for the worse. They now run bigger in size and much thinner and poorer quality. One of the two shirts I recently bought already has a small hole in it and it has only been about two months since I have been wearing them. I now understand why they have been on sale for so long. I would not recommend these shirts, unless you like throwing your money down the gutter.Cons: Wears quickly, Poor quality, poor durability
January 13, 2010
It works well as an extra next to the skin layer for 3 hour hikes when it's 30 below, windy, and I need just a little extra to stay warm and dry! It's also a great T-shirt under a dress shirt at work!
December 01, 2009
My son loves these. Very lightweight and comfortable. Easy to pack and take anywhere. The colors are nice and subtle. Overall, very satisfied.

A very comfortable shirt. I like the colors they offer. Shipping was quick. I'm very satisfied.
October 13, 2010
I love these shirts. I have about 8 of them in every color. Their fit is a little more athletic, and the quality is excellent.Pros: Build quality, Lasts forever
Great purchase - good price and outstanding product
January 02, 2010
My husband received the Columbia Titanium Omni-dry short-sleeve Tee as a gift several months ago. He liked the shirt so much that he not only put it on his Christmas list for this year (filled by me) but also is now asking for several of the long-sleeves as well...can you imagine!! He wears the tees under casual and dress shirts in the winter and as a stand alone for all outdoor recreation, especially in warmer weather. Breathes well, comfortable fabric, and fitted perfectly. He (and I) recommend highly!!
So far, so good
March 07, 2010
Really like these shirts -- so far, they're the equal of other similar shirts, but much better value. After 1 month, no problems with pilling or odor retention.
Best T shirts money can buy
April 29, 2010
I own 3 of these t shirts already and don't think you can buy a better all around fast dry t shirt. I just bought another 3 and Altec's service was great. The quality is outstanding as shown by the strong stiching at all the seams. These shirts will withstand unlimited washes with little wear to the material.
August 16, 2009
Fast drying wick-away shirt that is way softer than under armour. Looks good hiking or just wearing as a nice casual shirt - I have most of the colors and a couple of the long sleeve versions.
May 03, 2010
Just received the Mountain Tech Tee and tried it on. Great fit, craftsmanship, and feel! Can't wait to test it further!!
Great all around shirt
March 02, 2010
I wear this shirt in the Florida heat. In Colorado as a base layer when sking. When one gets caught in the rain. It dries out fast.
One of my favorite shirts
January 17, 2010
I use these shirts for gym workouts and find them perfect. I also own Patagonia capilene shirts, but the Columbia is actually more comfortable because of a looser neckline.
August 04, 2010
I have these shirts both long and short sleeve. Although the material is all polyester, the weave makes it feel more like a cotton shirt with the breathability and drying properties of polyester. I like the fit and the way it wears.
Very nice shirt
May 20, 2009
I bought this shirt for a Euro trip this summer. Very comfortable, light and very quick to dry. I have 3 of them now and waiting for the long sleeve I just ordered.
September 15, 2010
Shirt is well made and helps keep you dry. Perfect for hiking or any aerobic exercise. Will purchase again.Pros: Build quality, Performance
Stylish, good fit and comfortable
November 22, 2011
Me 5 foot 8inches 150 pounds wear a Medium Ordered 8 of these couple of years ago and they are fantastic. Color stays true after many washings. Not as high performance looking wise as Nike fit or Asics.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Great value
Year round wear
January 09, 2010
I wear these short and long sleeve tee's for hiking,backpacking,water-sports and casual wear. They are lightweight with a looser fit and are very comfortable. They layer nicely,dry quickly and keep odor at bay.
Excellent quality and fut
May 03, 2010
The shirt fits great looks good and is soft and lightweight. I purchased the shirt and a similar REI brand and the Columbia shirt is far better in every way.
August 16, 2009
I have been wearing my first 3 shirts for about 6 months. From the first time I wore the Omni-Dry I have loved it. I will now buy no other shirt for serious workouts. The mountain-tech is perfect for my crossfit workouts. Sheds heat like a champ. the anti-microbial is nice because it doesn't develop the lingering funk like other technical fabrics. And the fit is natural. I am even starting to wear for standard non-office wear. These shirts are worth every penny.
Nice active shirt
February 17, 2010
This shirt is good for when your doing any kind of activities and plan to work up a sweat because it will just evaporate so quick.
Back country, casual, or dress

Favorite Shirt EVER!
November 10, 2009
I have 8 white shirts that I use for my everyday undershirts and four other colors that I use for other assorted uses... This shirt is a true multitool! I wear these shirts everyday as an undershirt. I wear the other colors as my single top layer for backpacking. They perform great AND look great! What else do you need?
Great all purpose outdoor mens short.
June 16, 2009
Shirt is light weight and looks good. I live in a very humid climate and this shirt performs well in helping me to stay cool and dry doing outdoor activities.
Men's Titanium Omni-Dry Tee
December 12, 2010
This is my first time that I purchased this tee. I wore this tee during extremely hot day which kept me cool and free from sweat. The quality of the fabric is very smooth and its true to size. I'l definitely purchase more in the near future. Excellent job Columbia!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Great value
Perfect, Lightweight Base Layer!
January 12, 2011
I have been wearing various colors of this shirt for several years. This Omni-Dry material is awesome. It is the perfect, lightweight wicking layer for wearing by itself on a hot summer day and I can wear them under all my dress shirts. My shirts have gone through many washings without losing their form and like-new appearance. A big plus is that they pack small and light and are extremely wrinkle resistant. I would recommend this mulipurpose shirt to anyone. I am 6.0', weigh 170 lbs and a medium is an excellent fit.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value

The Perfect Outdoor Shirt
June 11, 2010
Athletic & lightweight, and tight-knitting means it doesn't snag or tear on small branches easily - perfect in the rough brush. Fast-wicking, durable and comfortable - wear them on the street or any terrain. Buy two or more - you'll love them - I do!
light, fits well, keeps you cool
April 30, 2010
A great shirt overall. A nice white color, feels good on you, you don't even notice how effective it is until you wear it for a few days then wear a cotton t-shirt.
December 18, 2009
My husband looks great in this shirt. Keeps its color and is nice for a pop of color under another shirt
Best Lightweight Super Cool Great Fitting Performance
May 13, 2010
If you like being comfortable but still able to wear it anywhere then this is your shirt! I wear mine to Church and then Hiking so there is no range with these "T"'s, they just plain rock...Even the Pastor's Wife commented on how nice it looked...LOL...I have 8 of them if that gives you an idea of how much I like them and I bought two of the colors I really like, Stucco and Vermillion so I wouldn't be without one to wear at anytime...Thanks Columbia well done! Thanks to Altrec for great pricing and shipping quickly for FREE!
January 16, 2010
Light weight, no binding, great base layer.
December 19, 2009
Nice first layer in the cold or only layer in the heat. They run a little big, so pick your size carefully. I always wear LG but wear MED in these.
Great and versatile shirt
February 21, 2010
This shirt is quite durable. I was pleasantly surprised there was no problem with snags. It's stretchy enough to make it comfortable. It has flawless stitching without any loose threads, unlike my pants from Columbia. If I nitpick, my only gripe would be that they had sewn the tags into the seams instead of some iron-on. Even if I cut it off, it can still be felt in the seams because there's 3 layers of tags. This clearly doesn't deter me from buying more (both short and long sleeved version).
Performance exceeded expections
March 16, 2010
As a backpacker with many Grand Canyon trips behind me, I was looking for a SS T-shirt that would be comfortable, not trap moisture against my skin when making long, steep climbs, and not show wear under pack straps. I just returned from a 7-day trip down Tanner Trail to Bright Angel Trail where we hiked in on 2 feet of snow, spent the first 4 days with rain and light snow, and hiked out on slushy ice. The shirt was the most comfortable I have ever worn, and at 5'10", 155 lbs., the medium was a perfect fit. I would definitely recommend this shirt.
Frantically searched for more!
July 22, 2010
Bought this shirt for mountain biking and it quickly turned into my favorite all around workout shirt. My wife washed it with a new red shirt and ruined it....AAARRGGH! I frantically started searching for more because I was scared to death that they stopped making them. Love the feel, fit and coolness of the shirt. Thanks Altrec for having more and in 6 colors sweeeeet! Ill be buying more to stock up for the end of the world, don't want to run out.
Nice high tech shirt
July 15, 2010
Great fitting shirt that is lightweight, comfortable and not too expensive. I bought a medium and chest size is 40". Hope this helps!
A Superb Shirt!
July 12, 2009
Living in a hot and humid climate, this shirt is a real life saver for me. I wear it when I go out trekking, and it's so comfortable, I often wear it indoors. When I'm wearing it, I truly feel light-weighted.
April 20, 2009
I have several of both the short and long sleeve shirts. They are absolutely fantastic. I wear them not only for hiking/kayaking, but for casual wear as they are so comfortable. The best shirt out there.....by far.
June 11, 2009
This is one great shirt. Lightweight, comfortable,quick dry, sun blocking and so many colors to choose. I use it as a primary shirt or under something else. Awesome product, Awesome Company
July 12, 2010
Perfect everyday shirt. Great for the lake.
March 10, 2010
One of my favorite shirts. I have lost count of how many I own. Nice shape, colors, fabric, and performance.
May 20, 2009
Well worth the money! I use it as a regular shirt and an undershirt for long sleeve things. Great for hot and humid stuff!
January 20, 2010
great shirt love it
December 24, 2009
I have several colors I use as base layers for outdoor winter activities as well as everyday wear. They fit well and the wicking works as advertised!
February 15, 2010
I would compare this favorably to the Patagonia Capilene 2. It is the same quality, same fit, same function for less money. The size is "true," (you don't need to go up or down a size,)and the fit is similar to Patagonia (looser than a form fit like Under Armor).
Best T-shirt you can buy for the money!
September 13, 2010
Go ahead and buy one in every color because you will end up wanting to once you wear one. Perfect for humid summers as it wicks all moisture from your body. Also great to layer in the cooler months. So comfortable you will forget it is there!
January 22, 2010
June 20, 2009
I have at least a dozen of these shirts and use them for literally everything. I wear them hiking, kayaking,casual wear, and even for sleeping! They are the best and most comfortable shirt out there.
Great Active Shirt
March 25, 2010
This shirt is perfect for hiking and working out at the gym. I tend to sweat a lot when working out, but this shirt keeps me dry. Will purchase more in the future.
July 18, 2010
I got one of these from another web site. They ran out then I found them at altrec and bought two more. They don't fade, light, and fit perfect. I like the speed hike Columbia shirts too but i think the mountain techs are my favorites!
These are great for the warm weather
July 20, 2010
I wear these while traveling, can wash in hotel room and dry very quickly. Soft and cool. Have many and like them.
June 03, 2009
comfortable and functional
March 23, 2010
I Own 2 already. I Will buy more when they go sale. true to size, use as baselayer with a fleece
