Part of the Performance Fishing Gear lineup and a favorite among fly-fishing guides and recreational fishing fanatics, the Men's Columbia PFG Bonehead Short Sleeve Shirt is ideal for tropical conditions and summer weather.
This versatile and well-equipped button-down shirt features a lightweight, garment-washed cotton poplin fabric that is remarkably soft and highly breathable. If wearing fly-fishing vests or lightweight tackle bags in hot weather is intolerable, you'll love the features on Columbia's Bonehead Shirt. On the front are fly-fishing box pockets with hook-and-loop closures, a tool holder, a utility loop and a rod loop on the left chest to free up your hands as you wade in waist-deep tidal flats. Mesh-lined cape vents for additional cooling at the back and the hook-and-loop tabs on the collar let you turn it up to keep your neck from frying.
While the online reviews for the Columbia Men's Bonehead Short Sleeve Shirt are often glowing, some travelers have noticed that the cotton poplin fabric can require some ironing after packing. Most people fish in spaces where the only dress codes apply to lures, but keep this minor fabric care concern in mind if you're bound for more civilized shores.

I love how light these shirts are. I bought two other colors of this same shirt. I typically wear a size Large, but had to get a Small in this shirt.
Best Fishing Shirt Made
January 09, 2013
The bonehead by Columbia has to be the most comfortable and coolest fishing shirt made. You cannot beat 100% cotton for keeping you cool on the water versus those nylon shirts. I now have 6 Boneheads and hope Columbia makes them for years to come.Pros: Lasts forever, Great value
June 16, 2011
I bought four of these shirts for my two sons who are working this summer on the gulf coast. I got them mediums, and I'm glad because they fit me and I usually wear a large. I'll probably get all four when they're done with their work - not very fashionable for college kids, but great shirts for outdoors people. Good sun protection, keeps you cool in hot weather, dries quick, plenty of pockets. Also comes in nice colors - leaf green is especially nice.
July 09, 2012
I had to come back and buy this shirt in more colors. My husband loves these shirts so much he had some of them embroidered for his work. Now he can wear them every day whether he's fishing or not. He says they are the most comfortable shirt he has ever worn. I usually buy him an XL but the large fits him perfectly. If there is any down side to this shirt it is that if you don't take it out of the dryer immediately it will need a light ironing.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
April 05, 2011
very cool and comfortable. I am a single guy and dont use an ironing board very well lol. I just wash and tumble dry, comes out of the dryer wearable no problem. Wish that it came in a size xxx tho. I am 6' 3" and 280 lb.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use
is very much larger clothes.
June 20, 2011
Is very much larger clothes. Large size is size 2xl. The original has excelled herself wearing clothes two sizes smaller Choose Clothes are easy cursorCons: Bad design
My husband's favorite casual shirts
October 07, 2011
These are the best shirts for casual wear. They wash and wear beautifully and are comfortable for outdoor activities. My husband and my son cannot get enough of them and aAltrec has all the sizes and colors and styles.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
Fantastic shirt for hot weather!
April 28, 2010
I currently work in Iraq as a contractor and I have yet to see another shirt that is as comfortable as the Columbia. Temperatures here can reach as high as 130 degrees and the Columbia is lightweight, with a venting design that beats any other shirt. I own all the different colors and swear by these shirts!
A comfortable summer shirt!
February 19, 2011
Columbia`s "Bonehead" fishing shirt is designed for warm to hot weather. It IS true to it`s fit, it`s designed that way. This shirt is NOT supposed to fit like a body glove! It should be worn loose and non restrictive. I wear this shirt, both the long sleeve and short sleeve version on my farm in Mississippi daily, during the spring and summer months. I have used this seriously comfortable shirt dove shooting in Argentina and bear hunting in southern Alaska. It`s really a great shirt. Cold water wash and dry and you`re good to go! I do not recommend using an iron tho. If you require a pressed look, your dry cleaner will do this shirt justice. Personally, I like the fossil, sage and light blue colors. They are functional enough to wear out to your local watering hole at night!Pros: Great design, Great value, Cons: Wears quickly
Best Shirt Made!
April 09, 2011
I order these shirts for my boyfriend and he absolutely LOVES Them. He can wear them anywhere when it is hot and not worry about sweating to death. They are very breathable! He has all colors, but I have noticed that the white one of his has not became dingy nor does it stain! Great shirt!Pros: Lasts forever
My husband loves them
January 20, 2010
I have bought him one of each color. He wears them all the time. Wash and dry wonderfully.

Love the shirt on him
November 03, 2011
I bought this for the guy I am dating and he loves it!! The sizes run a little big. He has a 38 chest size and the medium was too big. There are a few different blues and I debated for a while which one to buy and I stuck with the white cap blue. The colors are pretty accurate from the picturentoin person!! For Christmas I hope to buy a white one for him!!Pros: Great design
excellent shirt and value
October 17, 2009
I use these for work and have my logo embroidered on them. I get great compliments on the look
October 04, 2010
The shirt is extremely comfortable and has performed well in the hot and humid city of Atlanta as well as on the hiking trails of the Appalachian mountains.Pros: Great design, Great value
March 22, 2011
The T-Shirt is very good and nice to use because is perfect to use in the sunny day its fresh. The only bad think about the shirt is the size because i buy a size S and still dont fitme very well.
A Great Shirt For Many Occasions
September 05, 2010
I ordered several of these bonehead shirts. I love them and Altrec has the hard to find colors.
May 19, 2010
extremely light weight which is great. the green is slightly brighter than i had anticipated but still nice.
happy with this purchase
May 30, 2011
Fits loose enough to allow air circulation-cool-without being baggy. Plenty of pockets for gear, looks good in most situations.Sleeves and body of shirt are long enough to be comfortable. Best shirt I've found for this super hot Florida weather.Pros: Great value, Build quality, Performance, Great design
awesome shirt for fishing and casual wear!
September 28, 2009
It was so easy to find a shirt for my husband on your website. The Bonehead short sleeve shirt is his favorite and wears so well. Great selection of styles and colors too!
June 07, 2010
this shirt is great quality but the sizing runs big. I am normally a size Large but this shirt ran very big.
Great Shirt for Hot and Humid Weather
June 12, 2009
I live on the Gulf Coast and this is the only shirt I wear. I own four of the Columbia Bonehead short-sleeved shirts. The shirt keeps me cool, it wears well and looks good to boot. I am always being asked where did I buy the shirt.
No better shirts
March 01, 2012
than the Bonehead shirts from Columbia- They travel with me everywhere in the world and they do keep me cool in the summers heat AND they do last foreverPros: Great design, Lasts forever, Great value
an excellent shirt at a great price
July 21, 2009
I love these shirts. They are well made, come in great colors and keep you cool while protecting against the sun. Your price is great too, less that I pay at the fly fishing resort I am part owner of.
June 07, 2011
good shirt but the pockets are heavy on the front if you are looking for a light weight shirt. The shirt keeps you cool and fits true to size. I bought a large for 6 foot and 180 lbsPros: Great value, Cons: Bad design
September 30, 2010
Great selection of sizes and colors! Will definately buy more! Great quality and fit!Pros: Great design
A great shirt!
July 28, 2010
Very light and comfortable - I wear it to work and everyone asks me if I'm a fisherman (probably because of the small logo on the back), I just say "No, it's a great shirt though!"
February 23, 2011
Awesome shirt. Although the long sleeves are more stylish. The short sleeve Bonehead will do if u want to go fishing or camping. The price is great for the quality of fit u will get. I highly recommend this product.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
August 27, 2010
I typically wear a Medium t-shirt but a Med. in this shirt swallowed me whole. Returned 2 Mediums for smalls. Hope they fit much better. Otherwise, a great shirt!
Great all around shirt for outdoors/work/around the house
December 08, 2009
Very well made, stands up to abuse and washer/dryers very well. well worth the money spent, will have these shirts for a long time to come....
Love these shirts!
October 25, 2009
I'm 6'3" 270 and the XXL have plenty of room allowing for a full range of motion. These are probably one of the most comfortable shirts I've ever owned! Summers here in SE GA are brutal but these shirts keep me as comfortable as possible with that "Yankee" blood in me still after 20yrs! Altrecs' prices are great and it's worth it further to order as to take advantage of the free shipping! Be cool and live comfortable with these PFGs.
August 05, 2011

June 17, 2011
this is a good shirt for the price, i got it because i needed to be over $45 for free shipping, i had a logo sewn on it for my business, fit is a bit more tapered than my other columbia fishing shirts.Pros: Great value, fits tighter, Cons: cotton shirt
May 10, 2009

nice shirt good fit and styling lots of pockets and keeps you cool while hikingPros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Great value
Felt it was a bargain purchase
October 04, 2010
was excited to wear it for the first time. Hopefully it softens up a bit after a few washes as it was a bit stiffer than I thought...although quite comfortable. I wore it walking through a Disney park in HOT weather, It was saturated when the day was over. Again, I do hoipe it softens up after some washing. Overall, very happy with it.Pros: Great design, Build quality
July 07, 2010
My husband wears these shirts all the time washes and wears great!

Great shirts at a great price. Shipping was fast too! Thanks!
A beautiful red
August 16, 2010
I have ordered several Columbia shirts for my husband and they are all perfect. He is trying the Bonehead for the first time. The Sail Red is a very nice short sleeve with the pockets he likes. The collar has the velcro tip which he loves. Not sure if it is wash and wear as the other fabrics but even touch up is easy with an iron.
July 09, 2012
I had to come back and buy this shirt in more colors. My husband loves these shirts so much he had some of them embroidered for his work. Now he can wear them every day whether he's fishing or not. He says they are the most comfortable shirt he has ever worn. I usually buy him an XL but the large fits him perfectly. If there is any down side to this shirt it is that if you don't take it out of the dryer immediately it will need a light ironing.Cons: might need light ironing
Not for fishermen only
February 20, 2012
My husband loved his first PFG Bonehead shirt so much he had me order 2 more. He's not a fisherman but loves all the roomy pockets. The fabric is nice and stays cool.Pros: Great design
Great shirt. Great Price
October 05, 2010
Cheapest price on the internet. Quality was very good and color did not wash out after first washing. Shirt is cotton, though, so did need some touch ups with iron.Pros: Great value
Great Shirts....even if you don't fish!!
July 10, 2011
I won my first Bonehead as a door prize in a golf tournament. I have really grown to enjoy their comfort and versatility. They're great for a day on the lake, or wearing out to a casual dinner.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance
great for the hot weather!
August 18, 2010
I purchased several of these shirts for my husband - he loves how they are lightweight and have the venting system - now he doesn't have to change a sweaty shirt halfway through the day!
July 02, 2010
