Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like having ice packs on your arms - if you drench them in water My husband and I both got a pair of these to wear when we are outside - whether for canoeing, hiking, swimming, or working in the yard - as we both hate the feeling of wearing sunscreen. The sweat activated cooling dots are not really noticeable until you soak the sleeves in water- then you have super cold sleeves until they dry. We wring them out so they aren't dripping, and it is really great on hot days. Size is tricky, I wish they had three sizes instead of two. I got the S/M and find I still have to pull them up at the top of my arms every now and again as they slip down (and I'm generally a L shirt, size 14). My husband got the L/XL and he finds he doesn't pull them up as much. He wears a L shirt but also works out his arms alot. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit for me! Was worried about the fit based on other reviews, but the S/M fit me perfectly. Its length = 18.5" allows ample material to cover my wrists when top of tube is pulled up to 1.5" below armpit; top of tube with 9.5" circumference fit my biceps (10" unflexed & 11" flexed) with a snug fit; bottom of tube with 8" circumference can stretch to about 10" to allow slipping past hands, however it fits loosely around my 6" wrists - but no complaints there. When taking them off, temporarily leaves ringed wrinkles around snug fit areas. Really glad these do not have those plastic/rubbery things to keep top from slipping down as my skin blisters from those aweful things. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Runs small I bought a pair of arm sleeves two years ago in size S/M and that served the function of blocking sunlight while driving and keeping my arms cool. I decided to buy another pair this year to switch it out. My original pair was sliding off my arms when I use it. Though I didn't gain weight, the second pair that I bought was way too snug. I could barely get them to fit my arms. Unfortunately, it has passed the return window and I'm out $23. :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A necessity for beating dry heat I am outside quite a bit for work in Arizona and train in the heat as well(110+ degrees). These are a game changer, not only do they keep the sun off your arms, but they can also help keep your core temp down if you wet them. This of course works best in a low humidity environment like AZ. I bought these for my coworkers as well, because I think they work so well. I would recommend the L/XL for all but the slimmest Males, because they run a bit small.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for times under the Sun Bought these because I'm under the intense Florida Sun for hours a couple of times a week, was developing a horrible "farmer's tan" and didn't want to always wear long sleeves so I gave these a shot. Have to be honest, was a bit hesitant on the omni cooling action, but it actually works. Absolutely love these! I'm looking into getting myself the matching bandana/neck cover next. Thank you, Columbia!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Goodbye, sunburn! I bought these sleeves for outdoor activities such as hiking and bicycling. I also use them while driving, so I don't get a sunburn/tan on one arm. They are very comfortable to wear and don't slide off very much at all. It is great to be able to go in the sun without lathering sunscreen all over my arms and without having to put on a hot long-sleeve shirt. I highly recommend them for daily activities. I do wish they would be slightly longer and would cover the top of my hands as well (with one of those thumb-holes in the side).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from FREEZER ZERO ARM SLEEVES S/M Construction is sturdy , strong, soft and comfy, can stretch but limited only to whose arm will fit it. Description of the size S/M could not even fit a non muscular and med size upper arm.The length is right tho. I returned it and ordered the next size L/XL, the upper arm fits better but loose on the wrist area. Will take it because the purpose is to cover arm from the sun and non constricting. Hope to have more other colors beside those 2 in size we need. I bought 2 pairs, one white and blue/ pattern.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more farmer tan! I work under the sun and these are a life saver. I'm typically a medium in clothes overall and I have strong arms and these fit tight but well enough to stay in place as I work. Much needed protection without having to wear an undershirt. In the Florida heat less is more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tight fitting, don't slip off I have been wearing them for biking and walking to protect my tattoos from extended sun exposure. They fit my arms tightly and don't fall off(size L/XL on 14.5" biceps). I would imagine if you have bigger arms then these might be too tight. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprised I purchased these to keep sun off of my arms while fly fishing and clay shooting. The fit was excellent, but I called customer service before purchasing to get the measurement of the size after measuring my arms. They don't "ride" down at all. I was surprised how much cooler my arms were while wearing them compared to just leaving my arms bare. MUCH better than a long sleeved shirt or t-shirt. They wick the moisture off of your arms and on real hot days you simply wet them down. Love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All day protection! I deliver mail and these babies keep my arms from becoming jerky. They even keep my arms relatively cool. I don't even understand how that works. I am a female, size 4 but bit bigger arms and I use the men's size s/m and they fit great. No falling down. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

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 Excellent product Bought these for my husband who is very sun sensitive. Excellent product. Very well made. He won't have to wear long sleeves all summer long now

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!
Date published: 2016-09-14
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.

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!

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.

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 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 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.
