Columbia PFG Super Bonehead Classic Long-Sleeve Shirt for Men
Cool in the heat
I wear these shirts in the long sleeve version year round in SW Louisiana - in the winter with layers and in the summer to protect agains the sun even when the heat index is 110. The light weight fabric and design allow as much cooling as possible while still protecting skin from UV. I've noticed that they do let enough light through where I don't have a 'farmers' tan but I never burn. Just wish I could get my wife to iron and starch them so I could wear them to church since they are normally pretty wrinkled. Be careful with your boat cleaning chemicals, they ate a hole through one of mine.

great functionality, runs bigger in size
My shirt is great. I have always liked Columbia products, so I am a little biased, but they have NEVER let me down, EVER.
I wear a large, usually. I tried a large, first, and it was big. I tried a medium and it fit well, good skin coverage and still loose enough to cast a big surface lure or anything else without hindrance. I tried the small and everything fit but the sleeves were too short, at least for me.
The looser fit works well and you won't be disappointed, unless you're walking the runway in a fashion show ;)
Try the shirt on (somewhere) before you buy it... then buy that size!

Nothing but Columbia
I work at a TV station in Amarillo Texas and believe me, the weather extremes here can literally change by more than 110 degrees within a year. As a reporter who also has to shoot his own stories, having great clothing that can handle my hectic day, from snowstorms to grueling heat, is imperative and Columbia is my daily choice. The shirts look great, the vents are a Godsend, and they work all the year long. Only wish I could wear them on air instead of a dress shirt and tie! Keep it up Columbia!

The Super Bonehead Shirts
Living in Florida and being retired, I find that this has become my basic shirt (always long sleeve so that it works in cool weather also) that I wear all the time with khaki shorts because the pockets come in so handy for the paraphernalia (including cell phone) I seem to need to carry these days. I started with the original boneheads and was thrilled when new materials were added with the Super and Flats. However, I do agree with the wrinkle comment above unless you are very lucky and careful with your dryer management. Of course, if you were actually using this for just fishing, who would care. Also, some of the newer materials are too gawdy for me and have gotten away from the more classic, some even preppy, materials that I was so glad to see-loved the tattersalls and was sorry to see the pink mint/blue go
