MarmotWindridge Shirt - Men's

The Marmot Men's Windridge Long-Sleeve Shirt is all about comfort. Super lightweight, quick-drying performance fabric wicks moisture away from your skin, and mesh panels vent additional heat for the driest feel possible.

Long sleeves - true!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: Small

Agree with previous posters that complained about long sleeves. I find this to be increasingly (and frustratingly) true for more and more outdoor brands. Torso fits alright - a bit loose for a baselayer, but fine still. It's not anything close to a compression type baselayer. The sleeves run long though and make the shirt less practical when active and as a baselayer. Construction seems solid.

My FAVORITE shirt for hot weather sports

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

I've been buying and very pleased with Marmot's quality products for over 25 years. This shirt is no exception. It's soft, cool, wicking fabric and breathable side panels make this the most comfortable shift I've ever worn for hot weather summer sports (rock climbing, trail running, hiking, mountain biking). I've owned a quiver of the short sleeve version for a number of years, but a recent skin cancer diagnosis has me needing long sleeves for sun protection, so I can hopefully continue to play outside for another 30-40 years (along with better quality sun screen, wide brimmed hats, and avoiding as much as possible being outdoors between 10am-2pm). I love this shirt and bought a total of 12 (4 White, 6 Bright Steel/Grey Storm, and 2 Cinder....I think I like the Bright Steel/Grey Storm the best)! Unlike other reviewers, I've not noticed any lingering odor. The only thing that is a minor inconvenience is the construction/care instruction "booklet," in every language including latin, druid, and klingon, sewn to the bottom hem. A few minutes with a sharp scissors and that problem is solved. (I'm 5'8", 145lbs, 38 in chest, and a medium fits well)

Stinky

I am a forester and wear this shirt working in the forest when it is hot out.
This is a well-made and designed shirt. I love the fit and feel of the fabric, I love the mesh side panels; it has excellent wicking properties.
The downfall? Like other Marmot base-layer and wicking layers that i have owned, it has the poly-pro issue of stinking badly. Not sure if i would choose not to buy this item on that point only but for me (and the people that i work with in the woods) it is a huge consideration. If Marmot could integrate anti-bacterial properties into the garment it would be five stars for sure

So so...

    Shrunk a great deal after first wash (yes, I followed the instructions).

    Thanks for the review Jorge! Super helpful to get this feedback out to the community.

    Excellent wicking tee

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XL

    I purchased a short sleeve tee and was so pleased with the quality and fit, I purchased several more. I also purchased several in the long sleeve and I wear them under my Marmot 1/4 Zip Rockin fleece.

    The fit is perfect. Finally, I've found a shirt that fits in either long or short sleeve lengths. I wear long sleeve shirts with a 35 in length and the long sleeve is "slightly" longer than that. The first one I bought I had the length altered slightly and purchased 5 other ones and decided to leave them alone and they fit fine. I really didn't need to alter the first one.

    The quality is typical Marmot.......excellent. It does not seem to pick and it is a very cool temperature wearing shirt. I've purchased other competitors wicking shirt where they were very hot to wear and I felt sticky immediately. The Windridge felt very cool and not warm or hot.

    I've been extremely pleased with this shirt!

    Good hiking shirt

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XL

    The Good: Fit is great; fabric is super comfortable; it does a great job of blocking the sun (4 day backpacking trip in the Sierra in July with no sunburn makes me believe the UPF 50 rating); wicks and ventilates well enough that I never overheated , even in direct sun. It will be warm in temps above mid-70s.

    The Bad: Not much. As others mentioned, it can take on a bit of a funky smell, but no worse than other shirts (and I just accept and assume some odors when backpacking).

    The Ugly: I got a white one, and any dirt or grime shows up really obviously. I'd go for grey if I get another one.

    The verdict: Good shirt, recommended.

    Ol' Reliable

    • Size Bought: Medium

    I have worn this shirt more than any other, and it has been stellar. I have washed it at least two dozen times and it still appears to be new. I have not noticed any of that synthetic fiber funk either -- bonus! I use this as a base layer, or a single layer in warm weather. Wicks well and keeps the first layer of warmth in.

    It runs a little large, so if you want it to be snug-fitted, order a size down.

    Good fit

      5'11", 180 lbs. Smooth fabric with a slight shine. A thinner mesh fabric runs down the sides from the arm pit area. Very breathable and excellent for activity

      Clifton - I am also 5'11", 180 lbs. I'm curious if you went for the medium or the large? I'm always in-between those sizes and am never sure which to order.

      Strange Sleeves

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I own four of the short sleeve version of this shirt and use them for just about everything, from running to hiking and climbing. The fabric is great, breaths well, and is very soft and comfortable. My only concern about the fabric is that it tends to retain stink a bit more than other fabrics I've worn. It's also somewhat shiny, but that doesn't bother me.



      I purchased the long sleeve version of this shirt for cooler temperatures but returned it due to size issues. While the body fits great, the sleeves are just too long in the size large (for reference, I'm 6'2", 170 lbs with a shirt sleeve length of 34-35). The sleeves hung down to my knuckles and were not tailored at all, but rather baggy. I returned the shirt due to poor fit of the sleeves.



      I don't know if Marmot is having quality control issues as the short sleeve shirts I own all fit a bit differently. Perhaps a different copy of the shirt would fit differently.



      If you don't mind long, baggy sleeves this is a great shirt. Otherwise, I'd suggest looking elsewhere.

      Nice review, Kirk!
