Are there any good replacements for Cabelas Guidewear GX2 Button Shirts?

I knew I should've stocked up before. Now thanks to BPS, all the good Cabela's brand clothes are gone. :(

How well do the shirts below compare? Are the shoulder blade areas mesh vented? How are the pockets?
Are they flat, or do they puff out giving more room? Is the shirt materials light & soft? Or are they heavy and rough?


Are any of those decent replacements for the Cabelas Guidewear or GX2 Button Shirts?

Do other websites gave anything like the Cabelas Guidewear or GX2 Button Shirts? Which ones?

I can't speak to a direct comparison of all those shirts - But I have had really good experiences with the Columbia Fishing shirts - notably with the Omnishade. I have one Cabelas Guidwear shirt to compare them to..... overall they are pretty much the same - I feel the Columbia stuff holds it shape better - meaning I wash them and just hang to dry - the Columbia collars and pockets seem to stay where they supposed to, the Cableas seems to ball/roll up a bit. Yeah - it's not a fashion show - but I like not looking like I've slept in my shirts for 3 days!!!

Not sure if there is a Columbia outlet near you - but I pick up one or two each year if I get dragged to an outlet mall and Columbia has a store there.

And the Columbia Lightweight Omni-shade pants and shorts are GREAT.... even better than the shirts. I've lived in those things the past year and a half working from home... unbelievably comfortable and cool on those hot days and like I said - I've worn the crap out of the 4-5 pairs I have this last 2-3 years and hold up better than my damn denim jeans!

Thx that sounds promising, I'll take a look at them. I'm not a "fashion" person, but I know what I like in a shirt.
