Columbia Bonehead Shirt for Ladies - Long Sleeve
Good field shirt
I am a field biologist who works out in the sun many days in a month. I live in the desert where sun protection and keeping cool are very important. I find this shirt comfortable and cool, it provides my skin the protection it needs. The material is lightweight kind of like cotton sheeting. This is good for desert work. I like that it looks good out or tucked in. Wearing it outside my blue jeans helps to keep me cool. I bought the white shirt to reflect the sun and after a day in the field it is dirty but washed up nice. The pockets are important for all my pencils and small notebook.
I don't use any of the fishing loops..not too much fishing here...but maybe I'll find a use for them.

Bonehead shirt a proven winner!
I first bought the bonehead long sleeved shirt in 2011, and I have worn the snot out of it. Having had skin cancer, I've found that the best way to protect from the sun is with effective clothing, not sunblock. This most recent shirt is just as great:
1) Easy coverage for the neck area with expanding collar for when you want the most coverage.
2) Cool cotton material with lots of vents that breathe easily.
3) Smartly designed pockets that close easily & securely with velcro, so my cellphone stays where I put it, even when I'm leaning over.

Bonehead-great design, fair fabric
I love the design of the shirt. It is a good fit and shape. The pockets are functional rather than the useless little pockets that too many women's shirts have. I am dissapointed in the fabric choice though. It is a light weight cotton that will be tearing easily at work. Because it's so light weight it is constantly wrinkled. I don't expect this shirt to last more than this winter with feild use.

poor Quality Control
I own bonehead mens shirts in almost wevery color and recently purchased a womens bonehead shirt for my wife. Unfortunately she sould not wear this due to the sleeves were sewn incorrectly making it impossible for her to raise her arms. I have returned this and I am confident that Columbia will repalce this shirt for me. I trust this is an isolated case?
