Columbia Camp Henry Plaid Shirt for Ladies
Perfect button up shirt
How did they do it? This shirt is proportioned perfectly. Large enough in the bust to avoid gaping, flared enough at the hips to conceal any muffin top. This shirt is very flattering and easy to wear. I can't believe the plaid matches up in the front. Most shirts for $65 just drop and sew the fabric, but this does have extra attention to detail. I think the side inset panels also make this shirt appear more slimming.
The lightweight cotton is slubby and meant to look worn in. I have the teal and green and love the colorway. As usual with Columbia, this is another easy wash and wear shirt!

Spring chills and summer thrills
The Camp Henry line of shirts has always looked really good. Now that I actually own one, I'm an even bigger fan. I like the plaid button-up shirt style. I initially bought this shirt to wear on my upcoming Hawaii adventure to avoid sunburns on those volcano hikes. In the meantime I've discovered this is a great lightweight spring shirt; perfect for those just barely chilly days. The shape of the shirt is flattering, but not snug. I was a little surprised that the pink jumps out as much as it does, but the effect is pleasing. I may just buy a couple different colors I like it so much. The lightweight material makes this a perfectly packable companion for my luggage and my backpack.
Keep in mind when buying this shirt (and most Columbia products) the sizing is actually larger than most brands. I rated the sizing "true to size" because it is consistent with other Columbia products.

I usually don't buy plaid shirts, but this one is cute. I love the fit, not boxy, but cut nice in the waist. I love the fact that I can roll up the sleeves. The only thing I don't like is that I need to iron it, it gets pretty wrinkled even after lightly tumbling it in the dryer. I would also like the length to be just a bit longer, maybe in inch or two.

Serves its purpose all around
I bought this shirt to use while we go camping, hiking and canoeing to help keep the bugs and sunburn away while most importantly keeping me cool. So far so good, it seems to be living up to its potential! I was also pleased that I could comfortably button it, which is often a challenge for us ladies with larger busts, I was pleasantly surprised.
