Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sun protection Really feel cool and great way to keep from sun burn on arms without messy screen cream. Usr for fishing and golf. Beats wearing a long sleeve shirt!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cool cover up in the Texas Sun Great alternative to sun tan lotion, actually feels cooler in the hot sun than bare arms. My only complaint is that after a couple of washes, the upper arms start to slip down when active. So I'm always pulling them up to stay protected, some sort of elastic at the top would solve the problem, but overall very pleased with the product, would like to see other colors like, blue, tan and red instead of the funky designs that are offered.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FREEZER ZERO™ ARM SLEEVES I love these arm sleeves. They keep me very comfortable and cool in the heat. Also, they protect my arms from the getting sunburn. PLEASE OFFER THESE IN BLACK, BEIGE AND GREY. EXTENDED THUMB HOLES WOULD BE GREAT.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Motorcycling Being fair skinned, I was tired of applying sunscreen every few hours, so I decided to try them, WOW where have these been all of my life! I love them, they (to my surprise) kept me cool and best of all, sunburn-free. I'd love to see these in black, and extended with thumb hole.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Omni Freeze sleeves I returned my first pair of sleeves. I asked for a larger pair and they have NOT arrived .olease hurry!! I need these desperately!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It really works! I bought these sleeves because I wanted sun protection for my arms, and these did the trick. They really are cooling, especially in direct sun. I appreciate that Columbia offered a color option other than shocking white, which is how other brands often sell these. I do wish Columbia also had a flesh tone option. I bought the blue ones and liked them so much that I bought a second set. I would have preferred a different color, so I could keep track of which pair was which pair, but I did not like the camouflage options, so I bought a second blue one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent sun protection without the sunscreen slime These sleeves do run small at the top of the sleeve if you are muscular. I wish there were grippers at the top with a little more room. My small/ med fit very snug, but they don't fall down that way. Good sun protection while not too hot like a long sleeved shirt. Slightly less effective cooling in extremely humid weather. Perfect for lower humidity blazing sun days without having the stickiness of sunscreen. I feel this is better sun protection than sunscreen with profuse sweating with activity.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Big guns?? No go.. If you've got some bigger sized arms these will not fit. Trust me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great comfortable coverage I am a marine mechanic, outdoors 340+ days a year in the Florida keys sun. I can't stand the "compression fit" shirts many UPF shirts come in. I also can't wear loose fitting long sleeves because of the danger of getting caught in moving equipment. These with a standard short sleeve shirt offer protection from sun, and abrasions. I tried a pair and after 1 day ordered 5 more for myself and 5 for each of my employees.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from No elastic/grippy material The sleeve material s nice and does a good job of shielding you from the sun and helping to keep you cool. Bu the big problem with these sleeves is that there is no elastic and grippy material either on the upper arm section or at the wrist. Over time they become loose and don't adhere as sleeves should. It's like wearing socks that keep falling down. Very aggravating and annoying. I cannot recommend theses sleeves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SUPER Comfortable!!! I just received these and wore them for the first time...WOW...I love them! They were very comfortable to wear under a short sleeve performance shirt! I wish they had more colors to choose from...I am still buying another pair!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from S/M Not Small enough if you are a small I love how these function... but if you are really a small (5'7' 128lb), they will start to slip down after you have worn them several times. I have carefully handwashed them and not stretched them. These need to some in Small, Medium, Large, and XL to properly fit. Combining sizes gives you a small that is to big and a medium that is too small. BUT... they do keep you cool and they protect from the sun great... even in 100 degree desert! I use them for golf and they don't restrict the swing... just have to keep tugging them to stay up.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great quality, but very small I am writing this review before actually field testing these sleeves. I am a very very small woman, but cannot get this on past my elbow. I am going to try and wear them all day as one reviewer says they stretch out with use. Perhaps the sizing is inconsistent as another reviewer that they fit well. I really need this product so I am hoping to make them work out somehow!
Date published: 2015-12-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what i expected Sleeves do not run too small, they do expand a little with continuous wear, but not to the point where you have to keep pulling them up. The main issue with the sizing is the size of your upper arm. If you have thicker/bigger upper arms and smaller forearms, get a size up. It is a tube and does not stretch for your upper arm. Great for hikes, motorcycle rides, being outdoors. Downfall is if you're hiking and you keep them on, the cooling agent kicks in and your arms will be cold.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fun and effective I like these for golf and running to keep excessive sun off. They are lightweight and "cooling" in the sense they do not contribute to overheating. Function very well in preventing sun burn. They are a little tight around the bicep area. For a L/XL, they are boderline too tight at that spot. It is not elastic but seam sealed -- so stretch there is not easily done, feels like you would have to snap the underlying stitching to get more room. It makes it very good at staying up, but not ideal to get it there if you have larger arms.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Protection, comfort gives me flexibility I love the Omni Zero line and I am glad these arm sleeve exist! They provide me the sun coverage when I run (or hike) and provide this magical cool down. The best option for me is the flexibility to wear any of my short sleeve run shirt and combine them with these arm sleeve, if it's too hot and/or sunny.
Date published: 2015-11-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product The material is amazing. It feels cooler as soon as you put them on and wave your arms. It fits me well. I got the L/XL and I am average size, 11 1/2 inch biceps unflexed. Not sue if anyone with a thicker arms would feel comfortable wearing them. The tags are uncomfortable (5 tags, some rough) and you have to make sure they don't chafe against a mole, otherwise all that UV protection is pointless. Would have preferred smaller tags on the outside. The stitching is on the outside and feels smooth on the inside. One of the sleeves has a slight imperfection with the stitching but I would not trade them for any other brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super product I LOVE these things. I have several pair that I wear while golfing, coaching, working in the yard, etc. I live in Southwest FL, so I'm constantly applying sunscreen when outside, and these are so great because they cover my arms AND keep me cooler.
Date published: 2015-09-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Need more sizes! These sleeves used to come in a M/L size which was perfect for me (female - 5"7" 135lb). I've tried a lot of brands of these sleeves for golf and this is the best product out there if they fit. The S/M is way too tight and constricting, and the L/XL is way too big. Please bring back the M/L!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sizing These need to be sized better, I take a women's medium or small at Columbia. The unisexed s/m didn't fit. I think the product is great and want to wear them, I hope you continue to make them and increase the amount of sizes.
Date published: 2015-08-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Freezer Zero Arm Sleeves - a winner! These sleeves are great for reducing sun and heat exposure. I ordered the Small/Medium and they fit snug, but not too tight. I'm female, 5'4", 140 lbs. You won't regret adding these to your outdoor gear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Love the arm sleeves!! Always wear long sleeve shirts while fishing, but these are it from now on. Already purchased a second pair and bought a few other for presents. Great Product!
Date published: 2015-08-06
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great idea but too small Would like to see a separate M size that is more suitable for women's arms rather than a unisex size. The S/M is more like a small. Also, the Columbia lettering is way too large! Would like to see it more subtle. Idea is great. I'm going to use this in Africa where it is cooler on the morning drives but warms up. Columbia should also consider adding Insect Blocker as an option and provide more colors with no pattern.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sleeves Love all the Omni Freeze clothing. The sleeves fit great, I can play golf all day in 100 degrees, sleeves stay in place and never slide down. With a little breeze they keep the arms cool and comfortable.
Date published: 2015-08-03
Rated 4 out of 5 by from This technology works First off, these work. My arms are cooler with these on then without them. Get them wet and they are awesome. I compared wet arm coolers to a wet cotton t shirt on a 100 degree day and the arm coolers were cooler than the t shirt against my skin. About fit-they fit tight and they need to fit tight. I first tried on the S/M and they felt quite tight, so I ordered the L/XL. After a couple of wearings, the L/XL started slipping down, so I went back to the S/M and now they are tight but comfortable and they don't slip down. (I am 5' 9" and 145 lbs). If they could make these with a little more stretchy material that would be comfortable at the outset and still stay up, that would be great.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Does Not Cool after 4 Washes Does not cool after 4 washes and I did wash it in cold water as per instructions and tags itch my biceps. The Blue diamonds have disappeared. I ordered 3 pairs same problem with 2 of them returning all 3 within 15 days. See Picture

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Cycling! I bought these for sun protection during hot rides. These are incredible for keeping the sun off and keeping you cool. Douse them with water before a descent and feel your body temperature drop. I was concerned that they would make me hotter on long climbs but was happy to learn that I was wrong. I would highly recommend these!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cancer Survior First of this year was diagnosed with melanoma cancer. After surgery, five months later was again diagnosed with cancer. I feel that this product is a must to protect my arms from the sun. I wear them everyday when out in the sun be it 20 minutes or all day. They fit just fine on the forearm but keep sliding down from the upper arm. Will keep pulling them up for the protection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Freezer Zero™ Arm Sleeves product perfectly fits. I already try it in a sunny hot day and really keep my arms protected and cool. I use them when I am driving or when to ride my bike and they are the best product that I ever bought.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from size does matter i plan on buying more sleeves but getting the right size is not as easy as you would hope. Don't over buy till you get the size right then you will be pleased. I think the tighter the fit the better the product works. As long as you have circulation!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from motorcycle riding Purchase these to keep the sun from burning my arms while riding my motorcycle. Not only did the product keep my arms from burning in the sun it keeps my arms cool as well. They stay in place even at highway speeds. I have only been wearing them for about a week but they are doing the job.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than Sunscreen I bought these for my 10-year-old son for outdoor summer day camp in Florida. My son hates the feel of applying sunscreen and will not reapply often enough. He loves these sleeves. If he wets them in the sink, they get cool. They are very effective and my son doesn't mind wearing them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Arm warmers Have always wanted a pair of these to keep in the pack for those cool mountain biking days. Wanted something packable to put on when the sun dips and so does the temps. They seem to fit kind of tight and I ordered large. They seem warm and functional.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Zero Arm SLeeves This product works exceptionally well for me while playing a round of golf. I have purchased a similar product from another source but prefer the compression sleeves better. I am about to buy two addtional pair after I complete this review.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for runners Based on a friend’s suggestion, I bought these sleeves (color: white) to run a marathon outside of Las Vegas in May. I was glad to be protected from the sun while getting a cooling benefit. I got them wet and kept re-wetting them as they dried, as I think the cooling effect is enhanced when they are damp. However, I don’t know if they would work well in a humid climate if you can’t actually achieve an evaporative cooling effect. I have only used them in dry places so far, but I think these sleeves will continue to be a regular accessory on summer runs. My main complaint is that Columbia makes these sleeves only in sizes for men. As an average sized woman, I find that the S/M sleeves are a little loose around my wrist.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No burnt or cold arms These arm sleeves are great. The fit is good. Make sure you measure your arms before ordering to get the right size. They keep your arms from burning up in the hot summer sun. You can wear a short sleeved shirt to stay a little cooler but still keep your arms protected. If they get wet they dry really quickly. The fabric is light weight so they don't add a lot of heat to your arms. In the spring and fall you can wear them in the morning and evening to protect against chill but take them off during the day as it warms up. A great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Used the American Scales when I ran the Orange County Marathon. Performed well, I could feel the cooling effect.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Superb product idea, poor execution/description, etc I have tattoos on both arms and constantly struggle with keeping my arms out of the sun--in the car and just being outside. These seemed like they would be so perfect! The other reviews are horribly lacking on what size was ordered, their body (arm) size, fit, etc. -Some are vague or partially-informative, but mostly overall useless. I am a woman and being as the sizing--NOT included on the 'sizing guide' from Columbia--should include men's larger arms, I hesitated in ordering the L/XL. SO glad I did order L/XL! I cannot comprehend how any regular-sized humans can even attempt to use these (let alone a man with larger biceps & forearms...). I am a woman 5ft 11in tall weigh 155lbs arm (from armpit) length: ~20in long (unbent) bicep circumference: ~13in (unflexed) wrist circumference: ~7in These L/XL are tight and VERY difficult to put on past my wrist. They seem to do what they are designed for--to block sun while not blocking in heat. Best wishes on your purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Freezer Zero Sleeves Product is excellent, I ordered these sleeves for TIG welding purposes, for the UV protection and the warmth/cooling effect. The thermal ability of these are great, when a little breeze blows in I feel it immediately and it disperses across the entire sleeve. Very great product, I've already ordered another pair. Thanks

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed This product was seamed up so the outside was inside. So I have to wear the product with the side that is supposed to be on the outside, on the inside. Otherwise, the seams are showing. Also, I wouldn't mind the brand name being on the sleeve, but smaller and less conspicuous.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect The first time I wore them I spent the day river rafting in the hot sun. They got wet but dried quickly. I stayed cool the whole time and my arms didn't get a hint of sunburn though my neck did! It's like wearing a long sleeved shirt with sunscreen but way more comfortable and definitely cooler. Doesn't add as much weight to the backpack as a shirt either. Fantastic product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Also good for warmth I bought these to help stay cool during runs in our muggy climate. Unfortunately, I ordered them just as the weather turned cool. It was a good thing I had them stashed in my run belt, though, because I underdressed for a run a couple days ago in 48 degree weather and slipped these on hoping they would provide some warmth, which they did, just enough to keep me going. I'm 5'4" and 117 pounds with fairly small-boned arms and I found these to be a little loose and a little long (I just gave them a small roll at the end). I can see how a slightly larger person might find these too small. I would have like to have seen a slip-resistant band for the bicep. They did stay up while I ran, but I had expected some compression so I was a little disappointed. The sleeves are not "stretchy" much at all. I look forward to trying these if we ever see warm weather again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product really works I wear these for running and cycling. I have a couple of the Freezer Zero casual shirts which have been great for the summer. Once I saw Columbia made arm sleeves also I had to get a pair. I just rode a 60 mile race in these sleeves. My arms were comfortable in the heat. I didn't have to worry about burning either. Now I'm looking for a jersey made of the same material.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Really small Bought some of these in the S/M size and was unpleasantly surprised to learn that there is no way this would ever fit a medium. Couldn't even get them past my elbow. Also the size chart for these lists hats and gloves, which have nothing to do with sleeve sizes. It's especially disappointing because I also got a zero rules long sleeve shirt in size M and it is a little loose on the arms (fits great). Now I have to pay return shipping and wait if I even get a bigger size.
