Rated 5 out of 5 by One of my favorite shirts I own a lot of different hiking/travel shirts and this is definitely the most functional and comfortable will definitely be purchasing more in the future! June 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Outstanding comfort I cannot express how great this shirt has performed in the field for me. The breatheability is outstanding; I get protection from biting insects without feeling like I'm being smothered by a long sleeve shirt. After being caught in rain storms and falling into a creek, this shirt has always dried out quickly, keeping me warm and safe when I'm miles away from the road or trail. I'm able to move in any direction I need to and don't need to worry about the material snagging on thorns or branches while I travel through back country off-trail. My only suggestion would be to enlarge the wrist cuffs a bit. I don't have large wrists, but it is uncomfortably tight for me to have the wrist buttons engaged. May 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by One shirt for the entire PCT I hiked the entire PCT in one single Canyon shirt - and it wasn't even new to begin with. The shoulders started to wear out during the last couple of hundred miles but until then it hadn't even lost a button. The fabric is easy to wash out on trail and dries super fast - just wring it out, put it back on and hike out. It's simply the perfect long distance hiking shirt: Light, comfortable, easy to clean and almost impossible to kill! I suspect the sun is what finally wore out the fabric on the shoulders (just guessing), but I think my shirt had about 200 days of hard, outdoor use before giving up. Please don't change a thing, and bring back the white color! January 4, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cayon Shirt Long Sleeve I have been wearing the various versions of the canyon shirt since the inception of the product. I have a fond attachment for sizing for that is what i do professionally. This product meets listed specifications and has a great fit. The length of the garment is right on and the side panels for breathability have always been the signature of this shirt. It is great to see a well constructed garment that is complimented by techinical features such as the roll up collar and snap sleeve tabs for rolling up sleeves. The zipper breast pocket is large enough for a map and compass. Other than the request of the adjacent breast pocket to include a zipper or velcro closing this product is a solid choice for the day hiker and backpacker. December 26, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Used to be my favorite shirt, quality has greatly declined I was very saddened to receive my latest shipment of Canyon shirts and find that after two washings the material is frayed, seams are coming undone, threads are coming out and there is diffuse piling of fabric. I thought perhaps it was just a bad batch or possibly even a knock off, though purchased from a reputable dealer, but others have noticed the same thing. I do hope that the original design could be restored, and I would be then delighted to purchase a new batch, and rate this product with full enthusiasm, but until then, I can not recommend at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Four weeks in EL INFIERNO and Back I am a forestry surveyor and find myself outdoors in all climates, from below zero to 100 degrees plus. The Mexican Government recently invited my company to come down and map and survey several areas in the desert because new water reserves were found in the desert and the Mexican Government wants to experiment with a variety of trees to create several Oasis is the best way to describe it. I outfitted my self for a four week trip to cover Desert heat, Alpine temps in the Sierra Madres and Jungle/sub-tropic clime of the lower Copper Canyon area of Chihuahua With 5 Canyon Shirts for myself and two to gift to my Mexican Counterpart (who I had worked with before on several occasions) . For two weeks we worked in 105-112 degree desert heat and I have to say the L/S CANYON shirt was awesome it performed perfectly, It was very comfortable while wearing a backpack the nice loose fit was a blessing, in the desert long sleeves are a must remarkably any little breeze would help cool me and keep me dry, I didn't experience any binding or uncomfortable seams while traveling or wearing a back pack. At night I would shower and clean my shirt while taking a shower and after having cleaned them in the morning I had a fresh shirt ready. I would hang them to dry and have a fresh shirt ready in the morning. After several days in the desert a few of the Mexican engineer’s and scientist commented on my shirts and how they well they performed they decided to order some on-line. They were all wearing cotton polo’s issued by the government and complained about how un-comfortable they were in all this heat. We then moved to Copper canyon, Chihuahua’s alpine sierra the temp were cooler and still the shirts performed great, every other day we mapped areas in the lower valley and the temps there were hot in the 90s and 100% humidity, this is were the shirts truly were tested they remained damp the whole time because of the high humidity, Then the Raramuri Indian guide showed me a trick to stay dry and how to dry clothes in such a high humidity climate. I washed my shirts in the river every day and the Raramuri use the hot shale slabs that line the rivers to dry their clothes. I would lay out my shirts and like magic in 5 minuets they were bone dry. After two weeks of washing in a river using a wash board and rocks to dry them they still look and fit great. The nice loose fit allowed me to wear a wicking long sleeve layer in the cooler alpine temps. Every nigh we would eat at different restaurants and these shirts transitioned well with a pair of Khakis and dress shoes the shirts looked semi-formal. Over all I was very happy having the shirts, the fit was right on the material performed flawlessly and the 5 color selection I picked was perfect and versatile enough for wear with Khakis and Dress pants. The pockets were great I could fit my travel papers and passport in one and the sunglass loop came in very handy since I have to trade sunglasses for reading glasses all day long the loop was indispensable. After four weeks in THE INFIERNO (inferno) as the locals call it I could not have happier with my purchase. August 24, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Great Shirt Ruined from Redesign (improper sizing) I was a long-time fan of the L/S Canyon Shirt. I'm 6 feet, about 160 pounds and fit. I wear Medium size shirts. I first bought this shirt many years ago (6, 7 years ago?). I liked it so much I bought several different colors. It has been my go-to shirt for many years--I literally wear it everyday in warm climates. The ones I have are wearing down from years of hard use and I was hoping to replace them. Unfortunately I will not be replacing them with the 2013 version of the L/S Canyon Shirt. Simply put: it no longer has the features that first inspired me to buy it over the competition: 1) a slimmer fit and 2) a zippered chest pocket AND larger velcro chest pocket. Both of these features that led me to initially purchase the shirt over the competition are now gone. Size wise, the shirt is simply too baggy to perform well. Due to the way the shirt is now sized, it performs very poorly. The "Small" size is tight/constricting, especially when bending my elbow. The Medium size is baggy and voluminous (items stored in the pocket bang against your chest when you move (whereas they didn't with the tighter sizing from years back). The material is loose and sits far from my body creating a much bigger profile and less efficient coverage of my body (whereas the older sizing was slim fitting but offered plenty of airflow with no constriction or tightness.) It also looks bad. I look like I'm wearing a shirt that is too big. For example, the top most button leaves inches of space around my neck when buttoned (whereas the old sizing left a little space but not a gaping hole). This makes a difference when you are trying to control sun exposure and have pack straps sitting over the material. I also miss the zippered pocket over the right chest. I really enjoyed have a zippered right chest pocket AND a velcro patched left chest pocket. It allowed me to securely store money and Gov. ID cards (in the zippered pocket) and store more bulky items (like sunglasses, GPS, cell phone, mp3 player etc) in the velcro pocket. I can no longer recommend this shirt. They don't make a size that fits me anymore nor with the pocket setup that has worked so well for me over all these years. My bothering to take time to write this review is testament to how much I loved this shirt and how saddened I am to not be able to replace my worn out ones. July 4, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by My best shirts I bought one of these shirts and it felt so perfect that I went out and bought two more. I wish they had more earth tone color selection like olive drab or peat moss. As an environmental educator, I spend all my days outdoors. I get a lot of compliments about these shirts; they have become my favorite ones. June 2, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by never without one This is the best sun-protection hiking shirt I've found, and I've searched extensively. I'm never without one on the trail. And I'm usually wearing it. Not only does it protect from sun, but it blocks wind, prevents bug bites, and -- worn over a thin layer -- it retains significant warmth considering how light and packable it is. One suggestion for MH: Please make some fine (not horsey) plaids. A little variety beyond the solid colors would be very welcome. April 22, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by Change is sometimes bad or I am getting old.... I have been a fan and user of the Canyon Shirt (own about five of them) for years, so I was surprised to find out after I received my package from you that there had been some changes made to my beloved shirt. The new shirt seems to be of a lesser quality and feels a little too metro for my tastes. It's really a shame.... Guess I will have to enjoy the old Canyon Shirts I have until they fall apart.... What were you guys thinking? March 12, 2013
