Sizing Depends on Your Build I purchased the omni freeze because I overheat in race's..a friend wore these during the Hood To Coast Relay. The material does what it says it suppose to do, even better when water gets on it! Problem with the size, I bought large based on reviews and It fits fit like a bag. I'm petite build, usually wear a medium (I am not large busted). My suggestion is if your lean, go with your usual size. If you have a little fuller build, go up a size. October 8, 2014
Love it! I have 3 of these shirts and love them! I took 2 on the John Muir Trail this summer, they were perfect! Wore them day and night as my base layer. Just the right fit and length, not too tight, quick drying, cooling, light & packable, yummy colors! September 18, 2014
Comfortable I purchased this shirt to try on a bike packing trip over labor day weekend. I found it to be very comfortable and soft to the touch. Fit was good, slightly snug, but did stretch slightly as I washed and wore it over the weekend. Now it's very comfortable to wear. I didn't have any issues with the material piling wear my back pack straps wear rubbing throughout the trip. At night i would hand wash all of my items and this shirt was the fastest drying of all my gear. September 4, 2014
Great fit! This top fits well (36DD). So many times I find that the outdoor tops are tight fitting. I am thankful to have a wonderful looking top that also offers great moisture protection. August 28, 2014
well-made but runs small The shirt is well-made but it runs small. As far as cooling, it's just okay. The long sleeve version of this shirt works better for sun protection and cooling. I like my shirts a little loose. I ordered up a size as other reviewers mentioned the shirt ran small. August 4, 2014
Makes You Hot and Sweaty I bought this shirt after I tried the sleeves in a sporting good store. The material is cooling when its wet, but it does not breathe like a cotton T shirt. The nylon is snug and doesn't allow air to flow around your skin in the breeze, so it makes you feel clammy and hot. I tried it walking up a sweat in a theme park and it made me overheated. I wore it motorcycling and the breeze ruffled through the shoulder area, but didn't provide cooling. It wasn't until I wore the sweaty shirt into an air conditioned store that it felt cooling. I wore it to a night time outdoor race track where there was a breeze and it didn't breathe, just made me sweaty but not cool. I always wear a Large in Columbia shirts so I bought this a Large too, but my husband thinks its too tight. I personally do not think its too tight, but it does fit close and doesn't allow for air to circulate like my cotton tshirts do. The material is very thin and stretchy so if you have a muffin top tummy it will show. Looks best tucked in and since the point is to absorb sweat and provide cooling it can't do that if its untucked. I will keep and continue to wear this shirt since the pink color is bright and fun, and it does provide omni shade sunscreen. I have not tried it wet, by wetting it down before wearing and perhaps that is what it needs to feel cooling. July 30, 2014
Great top but mis-named color! I love the top, but there's no way that laser red remotely resembles the color red. Online it looks like the top is an orangey-red, but it's really a bright, bright orange in person! June 19, 2014
Terrific work out shirt I love this shirt. It look great on my body and fits just right in the right places. Provides sun protection and is long enough that when I am in the gym, provides coverage during all the moves. Keeps the sweat off as well as possible, too. Highly recommend. May 4, 2014
Great piece. I found this shirt to be functional and flattering. March 25, 2014
