Women's Freeze Degree™ III Half Zip Long Sleeve is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Undecided - Not for Arizona? I bought this omni-freeze shirt for running, on sale, with my rewards discount, to see if it would help mid-day Arizona running. It's hot and dry here. Granted I haven't shopped around a lot for this type of cooling apparel. My Omni-freeze dress works great though...but no visual cooling crystals. So, I wore this shirt running, and it was hotter than other shirts, or wearing a sleeveless shirt...because it wicked away the moisture just to leave me hotter and drier. So it seemed like the fabric had to be wet for the crystals to work. Okay. So I soaked the thing in water next time, snapped it, and put it on...it felt wonderful and refreshing. Score. Then at mile 1 of my run (105 degrees out) it was completely dry, given the wonderful wicking properties, and I went from fresh and cool to being a hot furnace...feeling like I would be better off in some heavy wet cotton t-shirt, that keeps the sweat on, or just a tank that lets the wind breeze across the sweat. So I leave you with this...what is the point of having cooling crystals that respond to moisture, if it just as quickly wicks it away and you're hot again? Maybe it's a good Florida shirt, and I need to find a different type of shirt for AZ running. Or maybe it's not a shirt for being active, but casual. The potential is there...just not for running in Arizona heat mid-day for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Liked it I run and have had several skin cancers so I need a shirt that has a collar, sleeves and keeps you cool. This shirt works great, just wish the color options were not so limited.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cooling shirt Love these shirts for hiking in warm weather and keeping the sun off. I've purchased over the past 5 years and still like them! (Sometimes they have weird colors which keeps me from purchasing.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Hiking Shirt in the Vegas Summers I love this shirt for hiking in Vegas to help protect me from the sun. I don't like putting on tons of sunscreen so this shirt works well and I don't get sunburned ever. It runs a little on the smaller side. I am 5'8" 128lbs and ordered the medium because I like my shirts to have a little bit of room and not skin tight. I also really like the thumb holes to protect my hands from the sun. It isn't super cool especially when it's 90+ degrees outside, but it still works really well. I got 2!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great top! Love this tops! They fit perfectly, moves with me, keeps me protected from the sun, & keeps me either warm in cooler weather & cool in hot weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME I've purchased two Omni Freeze/Freeze Degree shirts a year for the past 5 years. They are great for hot weather and protect you from the sun. Utmost comfort for 10K, half marathons and full marathons (actually any distance of activity).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with the purchase! I spent quite a few months, on an off, looking for a light jacket. I had a long request of things for the jacket I was looking for. It was not an easy search a long so many choices over the internet. However, I found the most important things I was looking for in the Women's Freeze Degree Jacket III. It is UPF sun protection, long sleeves with thumb holes, high neck, and to keep me cooled on a hot day. I could not believe it, when I wore the jacket the first super hot day, I was surprise of how much cooler I felt wearing the jacket. I love it! There were other two things I was looking for in the perfect jacket. The first one was that I wanted for it to be a full zip jacket . The other request was about the brand names. I don't like to have brands's names on my chaste ; I would have preferred for the name to be more discrete somewhere else. Other than that I really love the jacket. It was a great investment! Looking forward to buy more styles and colors with the same fabric! Unfortunately, I think they run out of my size!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I was looking for Great sun coverage, flattering, feels cool in the heat. I love that the thumb holes allow me to cover the whole back of my hand. The Miami color is great and looks as advertised. Great at wicking sweat and feels fresh even after a couple of wears in the heat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Skin saver I love this jersey so much that I ordered another one. I have used them all summer for golf. They have protected me from the sun and the cooling fabric technique works! It's been a very hot summer and they've done their job. I love not having to put sunscreen on my neck, chest and arms!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for fishing I fish in south Florida and have been looking a long time for a long sleeve, cool shirt, that's not button up or v-neck. My husband talks all the time about how great his Omni-freeze shirts are, and now I understand what he means. This is the coolest shirt I've ever worn in the hot Florida sun. I think it's even cooler than just a swimsuit. The sleeves are really long and a little baggy, but I still think it's comfortable. The length completely covers my hands, so I don't have to wear gloves (or sunscreen) on my hands, and the thumb holes keep them in place. I also like the high neck. I do wish the shirt was an inch or two longer, but it is not too bad. I know this is advertised as "trail" use, but I don't like it for walking. I wore it on a mile walk and I found the venting under the arms to be a little itchy as my arms swung back & forth. I am 32"bust and 25" waist and I found the XS to fit just right - not fitted, but not so baggy that it looks like I'm drowning in it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite outdoor shirt I have three of these and will buy more as colors appear that I like. I love the long sleeve and neck coverage so that I can wear this shirt on hikes without having to put on sunblock. The omni freeze does work, and keeps my arms cooler than if they were bare.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't live without this shirt! I have 2 and ordering 2 more! I can hike all day in the desert in this shirt with no worries. Lightweight, keeps you cool. Coverage is great, hands and neck too! I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Layering Love this product for its layering qualities. I love that i can wear a little bigger size for layering clothes underneath or overtop, yet no matter what way i use it, it maintains a more womanly fit. It dries fast and keeps me warm when needed and cool if hot. I now have 2 of the same shirt so i hope they make similar shirts in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this top. I bought the coral Freeze Degree long sleeved top at the Portland Airport Shop in July. I liked it so well that I ordered two more from Columbia.com, one in Geyser (turqouise) and the other in Foxglove (deep pink). I wore them while camping and several hours out in the boat in full sun and was very comfortable. I did not get too hot or sticky. I also did not get sunburned on my back or arms. These are wonderful tops for summer activities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Hiking Great functional shirt for hiking. We do a lot hiking in the Colorado mountains. This shirt does seem to help in keeping me cool and the thumbholes make gripping hiking poles so much better and help keep my hands from sweating so much - although this is more from having the fabric between my hands and the pole handles. Wanted to buy more colors but dissapointed to see most colors sold out in my size now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great top for hot climates The Freeze Degree fabric really works; it's lightweight, cooling, extremely stretchy and comfortable. The colors are vibrant and the styling is very flattering. This top looks great and is perfect for hot, intensely sunny and sweaty activities!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous shirt! I am quite sun and heat sensitive. I am always looking for cooling, UV protected hiking shirts. This shirt is the best one I have ever had! Love it and recommended it to friends who purchased it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect on active hot summer days The perfect long sleeve shirt. Been using it on days of high 90's even 100F + days. I ride horses and the shirt protect my skin and I never feel over-heated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Idea! I have only worn this once, so far, but I loved every minute of it! It does exactly what it says it does. I don't do well in the heat, but I had an extra boost while jogging with this shirt on. I even had an undershirt on, and I feel it still worked great. I'm 5'10" 130 pounds, and I was nervous about ordering online because shirts usually aren't long enough for me, but I got a medium and am so happy with how it fits. Highly recommended.
