    I must thank all the other reviewers for warning that this shirt fits large. I bought a size down from my usual and it fit well.
    The Bahama shirt looks and fit very similar to the Bonehead and the Tamiami. However, the material for all 3 shirts are rather different. The Bonehead is cotton, the Bahama and the Tamiami are both synthetic type material which have different UV protection abilities. I must say that I like the Tamiami as it offers the best UV protection and has the nicest fabric of the 3. But this is subjective and many would prefer cotton. The Bahama has a different pocket deign from the Tamiami and again I personally prefer the Tamiami.
    It is a good shirt however and Amazon offers a pretty competitive price for it. Happy overall with it.

    I love the shirt. It is cool in this hot and humid climate. The one fault I have discovered is the breast pockets are too large and are always billowed out. Other than this the shirt is great.

    I take photo trips for 2 or 3 weeks at a time and dealing with clothing on top of my gear is a PITA. The Columbia Bahama helps me keep it simple: super lightweight and folds tiny, can be washed in hotel room sinks and dries fast. Plus it’s comfortable, cool, not prone to wrinkles and rocks the safari look. I love the sage color but be forewarned it’s similar to park ranger and zoo keeper attire. I was asked for park information a couple times while enjoying the California Redwoods! Next time around, I’ll spring for the blue Bahama…

    The workmanship of this made in Vietnam shirt is excellent but, as other reviewers noted, runs at least one size too large. I’m 5’8″ 140LBs with slim athletic build (biker/runner) and normally wear small. However, I bought extra small and it fits okay but is still oversized, sort of a 1980s tent shirt fit. I’ve been wearing Columbia jackets and shirts for years and most run a size large, so par for the course.

    I live in the tropics and the sun burns me through my t-shirt within 30 minutes. UV protection is excellent and I’m good for hours of shooting without a hint of redness. As for coolness, it’s okay but not much better than a normal light cotton shirt. The nylon fabric is more prone to abrasion than cotton shirts: Cordura bags and daypack straps tend to “sand” it if you walk around all day.

    Finally, as a photographer I find the large pockets useful for holding filters, memory cards, lens caps, etc. The velcro makes for quick one-handed access and the pockets expand enough to hold a small lens. All in all a great shirt for photographers, travelers and outdoorsmen.
