Its nice and light on hot days to help get out of the sun and give some protection. Great feel and fit as well!
After many years of using Columbia button ups as my main thru hiking shirt, I've made the switch to the Charleston and won't be looking back! Tried it out for the first time on the Rogue River Trail in Southern Oregon. I was pleasantly surprised at how lightweight the shirt is and how cool it kept me. Also... thank you to Muskox for paying attention to the finer details that improve comfort - thumbholes, sunglass loops, hood. Amazing product.
Excellent cut and fit. Great design and finish.
Great feel and fit. Love the fabric. Light but not flimsy. Could go without the thumbholes, personally. Good length in sleeves and torso for tall skinny man like me.
The material is almost silky in feel which to me is pleasant. On the negative side the hoodie does not do much for warmth in my climate especially when humidity up in cool temps. Overall I will enjoy wearing this hoody in summer and early fall temps in Ak. It is not heavy so easy to put into the daypack for an extra layer
