Columbia Tamiami II Short-Sleeve Shirt for Men
This shirt was purchased by the Police Department I work for. I work crime scenes in the south, as you can imagine it's hot and humid. The previous uniform shirts we used were 100% cotton, that being said it was HOT!!! The Columbia Tamiami™ II shirts take a lot of heat out of the equation. I also fish a lot, and in the southern heat this shirt allows you to stay dry and cooler than you would with a normal tee shirt. I would and will buy more of these shirts in the future. FYI Under Amour sells a similar shirt (only three color choices) and they are $60.00 each!!! For the money and quality stick with Columbia!!

Quality and Fit
I purchased the Tamiami II as my company shirt for when we go to conventions and meeting with customers. We are heavily involved in fishing and especially kayak fishing. The shirt is very light weight, breathes great and is comfortable to wear all day long whether inside or out. The vent panels make it especially comfortable when you are outside. I had the shirts logo ed and they came out excellent, the fabric takes stitching well. I enjoy many Columbia products but the Tamiami II is a great choice for when you want to be comfortable, functional and look good as well.

I have several of these shirts in several colors and both long and short sleeve and my biggest compliant is the placement of the buttons. If you notice in the photo the top button is quite high and the next one down is too low. You won't like the fit and feel with anything in the pockets unless you button the upper button, which to me is not comfortable. I have several other Columbia shirts and none of the other styles do this. The shirt is well made and the material is superior to other brands. I hope Columbia realizes their mistake and corrects it soon.

Park Rangers just love to wear this sharp looking comfortable shirt.
This county agency purchases Columbia shirts for its summer Park Ranger staff. Not only do the Park Rangers love to wear the shirts because of their great looking outdoor appearance but they find them much more comfortable than the regular work shirts we use to buy. The shirts hold up well to the Park Ranger's daily work tasks so much so that returning staff often use their shirts for two or three season before replacements are needed. The shirts give the Park Rangers a professional appearance which enhances the overall image of our county park agency.
