Men's Drummond Short Sleeve Shirt

The Men’s Drummond Short Sleeve Shirt by Mountain Hardwear is a piece of stylish and functional everyday wear that is just at home on the trail as it is at the farmers market or office.

The shirt buttons up in the front with seven buttons and has one pocket on the left breast with a “secret” zippered pocket inside for valuables. The collar stands up to protect your neck from the sun and also lays flat for a modern and classy look.

The fabric is quick drying and durable. Despite around one hundred days of wear and countless cycles in the washing machine, the fabric has not faded or shown any signs of wear. The material wicked effectively and did not chaff or cause any discomfort.

My only complaint with the shirt was with the cut under the arms. I have broad shoulders and found that the shirt was tight in the shoulders and across my upper back. This tightness restricted my movement slightly. I especially noticed the restriction when seated. The cut didn’t bother me too much, though, and I didn’t experience any limitations in movement when rock climbing or Tenkara fly-fishing (sports with a lot of upper body movement). I tested a size medium – a size large would have alleviated this issue, but I prefer the length on the torso of the size medium.

Bottom Line:

The Drummond Shirt is stylish (I really like the Python Green color), functional and, despite the tight fit in the shoulders, quite comfortable. I prefer hiking in shirts with either a full zipper or a button closure, so that I can vent or catch a breeze – a feature that hiking in a t-shirt doesn’t allow. The fabric effectively blocked the sun, too, which is especially appreciated on full-day Tenkara fishing trips. I have worn this shirt almost everyday for the last three months – I like it that much, even with the tight fit under the arms.
