Men's Zero Rules™ Long Sleeve Shirt 3.4 5 9 9
Couldn't be happier.. I have three of the Zero Rules long sleeve shirts and use them primarily for mountain bike riding. They work great for a mid-weight shirt that is warm enough in the fall weather and also cool enough for the warmer days. At $29.90 this performance wear is a real steal!! October 8, 2014
BE PATIENT!!! I'm glad that I read some of the other reviews before writing my review because they verified and crystallized my experience. First of all, I have a white one and maybe Clark Kent can see some blue patterns but I can't. I didn't know what to expect and maybe I was doubtful that this product worked. When I put it on, I was surprised by how loosely it fit. Normally, I wear a men's large. Occasionally, I need an XL but I can't think of an occasion in the last 40 years where a medium was needed. This size "L" shirt fit loosely with the arms approximately 2-3" too long for my 32" sleeve length. I doubled the extra sleeve length back to my wrist and each sleeve stayed there all day. I went out to play golf with an initial temperature of 80° that climbed to 92° before the round was finished. Humidity was very high. I was MISERABLE for the first 15 minutes and the sweat was flowing freely. I almost took the shirt off; in fact, if I had some extra time and could have found a place, the trial would have stopped right there. But then, I began to notice that my arms were slightly cooler. If you've ever gotten slightly wet during a summer rain and then gone inside, you know this feeling. YOU ARE WET TO THE SKIN. Yuck. But wait: The wetness starts to create a cool layer near the skin as it evaporates. It is not a normal feeling. You are not "cool and dry". This would be very comfortable. You are "clammy" or "moist and cool". If you prefer "hot and sweaty" to "clammy" then maybe this product is not for you. It is a subtle feeling that becomes more apparent the longer you are outside. As the round went on, I noticed that my playing partners were complaining about the heat. If I felt any different from the start of the round, I was more comfortable, not less. Still "clammy". But not hot. I am interested in learning if the size is larger by design. Perhaps, a size "M" would be a better fit for me. Also, I would be interested in learning how it worked in drier climates. Bottom Line: It is not a miracle but an asset in reducing your body temperature during extended stays outside. Hope this helps. August 28, 2014
Awesome Shirt I almost didn't purchase this shirt because of the reviews, but I'm glad I did. I'm an avid river rafter and even after purchasing it I was hesitant to wear it on the river because of the bad reviews. I was on the Colorado River in Utah and it kept me cool and protected me from the sun. I moved to long sleeve shirts a couple years ago to keep my body temperature down and this shirt does just that. The material is a little thicker than the short sleep Zero Rules shirts, but I loved the long sleeve version and I will wear it year round. August 27, 2014
White isn't White The pictures don't show it but the white color is actually white with tiny light blue circles over the entire shirt. Returning immediately. Had to rate the fit but never opened the bag. August 22, 2014
disappointed I ordered several shirts called omni freeze a couple of years ago and wore them to death thought this was its replacement but this seemed like flimsy thin cloth which strangely enough does not feel as cool as the heavier tougher shirt of two years ago.. maybe it would be okay if I were not comparing it to the old ones..it just seemed like this might have been cheaper for them to make than the old ones.

Great Shirt Just like the short sleeve shirt, this is a fantastic shirt. Fits a little loose, but that is the way I like my tshirts to fit. Omni-freeze is a good as advertised. Long sleeves kept me from getting sunburn on my arms while still keeping me cool. I worked in my yard all day in this shirt with heat index over 100 and kept me cooler than any thing else I have. You have have to sweat to make it work the best but there was no problem with that when I wore this shirt. August 11, 2014
Omni Freeze Zero Long Sleeve--don't buy Have the short sleeve and it works great. This shirt is made of heavier material and is not as cool or comfortable. August 6, 2014
Awesome! I recently utilized this product during my photo shoots in Hawaii. At various locations it was extremely hot and humid. I was able to utilize the product with a very high degree of success and comfort throughout the day with absolutely no issues. The UPF works fantastic as well, no mess of having to put on extra sunscreen with this product. Works well as a rash guard in the water as well! I will recommend the product to my followers! Best, Mike August 4, 2014
Great if you are soaking wet I purchased this shirt in hopes it would help keep me cool while spending two weeks walking in the mountains of Haiti. The technology does work, but only if the shirt is really wet. If you sweat a lot this shirt is for you, but for me it was terrible. The shirt is a great quality, but because of the Omni-freeze lining, I found it to be much warmer to wear than my UA or nike combat shirts. Not nearly as breathable. I did not over heat, but was noticeably uncomfortable in it, unless I poured water over it. I love Columbia products, but this shirt just missed the mark for me. July 19, 2014
