Men's Total Zero™ Short Sleeve Tee is rated out of 5 by 44.
Rated 5 out of 5 by RobM from Very comfortable shirt Very comfortable shirt. It's a very cold winter in Michigan, but I have worn it as a wicking base layer under fleece and wool sweaters and it has kept me warm. It runs a little small so I bought a large. I only gave it 4 stars in function as it is winter, but I bought the freezer degree zero bandana last summer and it functioned excellent. I am looking forward to trying this out in the coming months

Rated 1 out of 5 by Stephen123 from Consistently impossible to get the right fit with Columbia clothes Try as I might to out guess the fit and follow the reviews, I cannot get Columbia T's to fit. The same applies to much of the rest of the Columbia line. One might think that I am somehow an odd shape or size, right? Sorry, but I am 6'2" and 200 lb and very fit. These clothes must be designed for 18 year olds who are rather tiny. L is really M to S, and XL is really M at best. At least this is my best guess as of today. Part of the problem is that Columbia has many different lines of T's and each fits differently. It is impossible to generalize from one type of T to the next. I think that I learned my lesson and that I simply cannot buy Columbia T's.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ACEYBOY1 from A shirt, A shirt, My Kingdom for a shirt THAT WORKS!!! This shirt is lovely to look at; it's comfortable to wear. BUT, it has no pocket!!!! And, @ age 68, an athletic-type T-shirt without a pocket is NOT a functional shirt. Where does one put glasses, IDs, other such important stuff when there's no pocket? I thought this shirt was form & function; I got 1 out of 2. Try again and some more, PLEASE!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SnaglerTackle from Summer Susquehanna Fishing with Columbia Omni-Freeze Zero Great shirt for fishing all day in the summer time in little to no shade. Reduces your body temperature while protecting your skin from the sun. Feels like you have no shirt on. For a professional smallmouth bass fishing guide like myself, the difference between my comfort in Omni-freeze technology and a client who wears a regular cotton shirt is very noticeable. I recommend to all my clients who fish with me in the summer to make sure when they come back to purchase some of these comfortable shirts.

Rated 3 out of 5 by yknn from Nothing special Cooling is not in anyway better than a dryfit shirt. Sweat marks stay visible even when the sweat dries.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CPLLewis from Dries Well I'll say first that I didn't notice any difference in cooling. That being said, the shirt itself is very comfortable and fits rather well. It also dries extremely well. I live in Oklahoma and wore it in our 100 degree weather. The shirt dried almost as fast as I was sweating. Once I got indoors I was dry in about five minutes, where as a cotton shirt would still be soaked in sweat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Wonderboy from Keeps You Cool I just used this shirt on a hike in the mountains in very warm weather. The shirt does not make you feel like you're in a cooler, but when you start sweating you notice you're not overheating and feel more comfortable. The shirt had no body odor at the end of the day, but it does not wick away all the sweat. I have never found any piece of clothing that does accomplish that. I would give this a five star rating except that I'm not sure of it's durability as I've only worn it once.

Rated 4 out of 5 by KJonthego from Size varies but crazy lightweight These shirts are crazy light and dry extremely fast. I live in Thailand in a hot and humid climate so these are great for me. I ordered two different colors and it seems the Wham color was slightly smaller than the Hyper Blue. Not sure why. Once you find the right size it should work great for you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Pinny31 from Nice n' Lite These shirt are nice and light for running, but I didn't feel any 'cooler' when I got going. I use these for running (usually 8-10 miles at a time) and they're certainly an upgrade from the Target brand I was wearing before. I'll still keep using them though and probably purchase another couple because the material is nice and comfortable and fit outstandingly well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Wonderdog from I Didn't Expect Ice Crystals Despite my expectation that the there wouldn't me ice crystals forming on the shirt like their over-that-top ads imply, this shirt disappointed me. It failed to be any better than a half dozen wicking polyester shirts I workout in. I was concerned about washing instructions, but washing instructions are in tiny type that are virtually unreadable. This was my second purchase of this style. I returned a "metal"-colored shirt that was more like "olive" than the gray I expected. I like the Hyper Blue enough not to return it for

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dotty from Unanimous approvable I ordered a tee shirt for my husband & 3 adult sons so they could sample them to see if they work well before deciding to buy more. They all were Very impressed with them. Here in the mid-south the heat & humidity are pretty awful in summer so any help is appreciated. They each have worn their shirts on individual fishing trips, fishing with another guy who was not wearing an Omni-freeze Zero shirt. They said on every occasion their fishing partner's shirt was wet with perspiration while they remained much more comfortable than they would have been without their new tee shirts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by howie25 from unbelievable Strange but true...these little blue dots are incredible. The more you sweat , the cooler things get.. I purchased several more items after trying the first t-shirt. At first they seem a bit pricey, but after you experience the cooling effect, they are worth every penny.

Rated 2 out of 5 by justinzak from I wanted to like this product... I wanted to like this tech shirt. The idea behind it is interesting, and it has a great cooling technology story. I think Columbia needs to work on its application a bit before being ready for prime-time. While I'm sure the shirt cooled the surface of my skin, the breathability was absolutely sub-par for any high-aerobic activity. Light hiking or fishing - this shirt would work fine. For biking, climbing, or any sport that requires good breathablity - this shirt suffers (and makes the user suffer). What is the point of a cooling fabric without breathability. I hope Columbia uses this fabric strategically in certain panels coupled with "zone" construction where you need breathability. Great concept - half baked.

Rated 4 out of 5 by StayingCool from Want to Stay Cool This shirt keeps you coolier than any cotton fabric shirt ever could. Mowed the back yard in 90 degree, very humid conditions and did not overheat as I normally would utilizing a cotton shirt. Wicked great. Fabric reminds me of lycra I would use when I used to surf Ala Moana and Diamond Head, only keeps you coolier. I would recomend to those wanting to stay cool outdoors, a defintie must!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by RVAAngler from Nice shirt, but does not do as advertised I would like to start by saying I use columbia almost exclusively for working out and fishing and love most of their technologies. However, this one seems to fall short in my opinion. The technology is not sweat-activated as advertised; provides little benefit over similar materials at more than 2x the price. Any shirt is going to be slightly cooler if it is wet, particularly as the wind hits it. That being said, this does seem to work a little if you jump in the water with it on or soak it with a spray bottle. Other than that, it is not sweat activated by any means. Also, the small circles used in the technology fades rather quickly. I have followed all of the washing instructions to the letter, but after about 10 uses, the technology is almost completely gone. The shirt itself is very comfortable, fits well, and the other technologies such as moisture wicking works really well. I am just very disappointed with the omni freeze zero technology advertised in this shirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WVTrailRunner from Good for 40 Miles Bought this shirt to wear for a 40 mile ultra run and I have to say I am pleased with the results. Possibly the "freeze" technology is overstated but I will say I stayed comfortable in temps up to mid 70s. Highlights are very soft fabric which is comfortable against the skin (more comfortable than other poly fabrics I wear). The sweat wicking ability is great, odor technology is good (didn't stink up the room afterwards), and most impressed by sun blocking technology - no trace of sun burn on my shoulders after the run even with a lot of direct sunlight. Fit is true to size. I'm 6'3" 180 lbs and like loose fitting but not baggy - medium was perfect fit. Hats off too Columbia for making a solid product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by MartinB from Excellent fabric but poor fit You have a top notch fabric however all the short sleeve shirts are WAY too short in the sleeves. If I am going to pay this amount of money for a shirt i would like one that covers my upper arms. Every one of your Freeze Zero line has next to no sleeves and you may as well be wearing a tank top. Trust me if you aren't a "muscle man" sleeves this short don't look good. Your older "sun freeze shirts had nice 19" sleeves none of the zero shirts will do. :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by MountainMama2012 from Awesome shirt My husband has four of these shirts, and they are his favorite to wear while paddleboarding. He also mountain bikes in them and uses for daily wear. We will probably get more. Sometimes my husband wears an XL in other brands because of his wide shoulders, but the L in this shirt fits him perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by smith7 from Cool Bought this shirt as a workout shirt on a vacation trip. Unfortunately, the weather was cooler than expected. The shirt did an excellent job of wicking sweat and keeping me cool. Then things started to get really cool. Rather, I started to get cool. As my body cooled down from the exercise, I started to feel COLD. None of my other wicking t-shirts have had that effect - ever. I may be imagining it, but the tech seems to work as advertised. Great job!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stephan from It's cool! :-) My kids play soccer and I race cars. In both activities there is a high tendency to perspire. One of my kids tried it while playing soccer and his comments were: Smells "minty and feels cool, I like it! I was worried about wearing an extra layer under my soccer jersey but it did not bother me and felt ok". I cant wait to try this in a hot day while I wear a full racing suit and this shirt under my Nomex layer. I think this could be a good alternative to the very expensive Cool Shirt System.
