Women's Freeze Degree™ 1/2 Zip is rated out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by BeeBee2 from Cool shirt for active sports I needed a high neck, long sleeved shirt for sun protection while playing tennis. I played tennis in the low 80s and the shirt felt light and cool. The sleeves are long enough to cover the backs of the hands. The shirt is fairly form fitting, so I needed a large. It fits fine. I'm 5'7" tall and weigh about 132 lbs. The medium was too small and clingy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by GingerMailman from Good, but not what I was expecting I am a Letter Carrier for the Post Office, I also have very fair skin and I don't do well in really hot weather. I purchased this shirt specifically for the overall uv protection and the Freeze Degree to help keep me cool underneath my uniform. Sofar, it has not worked. I get hot and sweat, and it evaporates like my other spandex long sleeve shirts. So I am a little disappointed. Aside from that, I love the material, the length and pattern. I am glad though that I waited until the sale price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JSHK from Need full protection from sun while running I am a runner living in Mexico City who needs to be protected from the sun. This shirts serves all my needs - has a strong UPF protection, keeps me cool while running and is very comfortable. I got it in hyper blue and love the color. I usually wear a medium and like my running clothes to be snug, so since the website says the shirt fits slightly small, I still went for the medium and it fits perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gammie from Perfect This top is exactly what I've been looking for ...comfortable and good looking. When a friend showed up with one I asked for detailed info on the garment and went online to purchase it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by sensitiveskin from Lovely, but ITCHY!! so bummed, super cute, GREAT fit, nice color, really good concept, but the darn thing made me break out in a bad rash on my chest and arms :( Something about the material I think to help cool you down, I don't know, but I had a really bad reaction to it. I was wearing a sports bra underneath it, so my rash was on my chest to the bra, and on my arms. But, that's just me, I have sensitive skin, you may not have the same reaction.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Steamer51 from Not what I hoped for HIking in the Rocky Mountains our humidity is low so evaporation is good. That is the principle this product is counting on. If you have clothing you hike in that gets damp, the effect should be the same. I am not sure this product did that any better than other things I wear. Nice piece of clothing otherwise. I bought large because of some reviews and I can vascilate between M & L according to the product. Seemed to be snug enough for the contact but not to loose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by shiraz from UPF 50 Sun Protection I purchased this because of its UPF 50 Sun Protection and its Omni Freeze technology. It is truly stylish and its long sleeves and a high collar make it cool or warm to wear. The colors are very nice. I hope Columbia makes more products like this, especially ones for Sun Protection. The fabric is soft and I got a small instead of x-small so it wouldn't be too tight. It fits perfectly. A good choice for the beach this summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sold from Great shirt I wore this everyday on a very sunny, high elevation backpacking trip. I felt cooler in this than any short sleeved shirt. Lightweight and soft.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FitChic from Almost perfect If this top had longer sleeves then it would be perfect. I need at least another inch and a half to have it come to my wrist (I'm 5'8) and be able to use the thumb hole properly. Works great at keeping you cool while working out and even during cardio activity. I'm a size 6/8 top (36D) and the small fits perfectly. Love the sun protection the most! I'll be using this top for indoor workouts also. Cheap UVA lighting (fluorescent) at my gym.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ArizonaRower from Perfect for rowing! I have 4 of these shirts and don't go out on the water without them - keep me so cool in the heat of Arizona in the summer. Everybody who sees me in a long sleeve shirt in 110 degree weather can't believe I am cooler than they are - but I am!! I highly recommend this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BlessMyMule from Who Says You Can't Be Stylish In Water I bought this in #3 colors and I am toying with buying the white one: It is on sale... When fellow paddlers remark how hot it is and how I have too much clothing on, I just smile and offer them a wet cloth. I don't need one: My shirt does the job. I see Columbia makes shoes like this, also. I will buy those. I wish Columbia made Zero Freeze Pants.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nubin from Went rafting I debut the shirt on a rafting trip down the Colorado. It was excellent at wicking away the water. The long sleeves provided extra protection from the sun. All in all, it functioned very well, was comfortable to wear and lived up to what the advertisements said.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mine from Golfers Wanting Sun Protection This shirt can act as a collared golf shirt, which I require. The new wicking function is unbelievable. The shirt was form fitting, however stretched with every movement of my body on the golf course. It is non-binding and did not stick to my skin when I perspired. It kept me safe from the suns rays and was extremely comfortable. It is soft to the touch and feels pleasant on your skin. It is frequently above 95 degrees where I live and I must stay covered at all times outside. I highly recommend this shirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by flyfishingal from The perfect top I've been wearing this top to the gym everyday. (I bought all the colors.) Normally I get very hot in the gym while working out. This shirt breathes so I don't sweat. I take this shirt with me fishing. It's perfect in the hot sun and keeps me warm on the cold days. Many people have stopped me and have commented on how nice the shirt looks on me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chilicat from Awesome! The color is beautiful, the material feels fantastic and the shirt manages to keep me warm when it needs to and cool when it needs to. The shirt provides excellent sun protection. The sizing is appropriate. I'm very happy with this shirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GargetGirl from Wasn't sure - now sold I'm really liking this fabric! I have yet to test the fabric in extreme conditions, but I believe in what Columbia does. The cut and fit are beautiful and I love the thumb cuts on the sleeves! So light weight and silky!

Rated 5 out of 5 by golfmom from Great for golf I was pleasantly surprised, this fabric really does what it promises! I wore it in South Florida, 90 degrees & sunny and I stayed dry. My shorts were damp from the heat, but my top half was dry. You would think long sleeves might be too hot but I wanted to protect my arms from more sun damage. I felt very comfortable, cooler than I had in my regular polo style golf shirts that stick to me in the humidity. I ordered a medium, it fits perfect, but slim and close to the body. My chest is 36", if you are any bigger than that you will need a large. If you want it a bit loose also order a large.

Rated 4 out of 5 by highdesertpainter from highdesertpainter While I haven't had the chance to wear this in warm weather, I have worn it as a base layer on cool days, and it breathes well. Flattering lines too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SL42 from great fabric, wrong fit (inconsistent sizing across products!!) I purchased two of the omni-freeze ice shirts last season--the first was a medium (I am 5' 9" and approx 135lbs) and it looked like a maternity shirt; the second was a small and is a perfect fit. (I have multiple Columbia shirts that are all different sizes!) It became my absolute favorite shirt for warm weather hiking and running and does everything Columbia claims with regard to cooling and UPF protection. I was thrilled to order more and in new colors, but the sizing is different AGAIN. Now I have to spend more money on shipping to get the right size. Also, the zipper is not as long, which is a bummer for venting over a sports bra and for pulling on/off with a pony tail. My old one is still my favorite, though the fabric is equally as great in the newer version and really does make my skin feel cool when I sweat. I would give this product five stars if the zipper were deeper and I weren't so frustrated with the sizing.
