Women's PFG Freezer™ III Dress is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 48.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I wish I would have ordered two... Seriously, the most comfortable and functional summer dress. The fabric is a dream. I wish they came in more solid colors (dark purple especially). Washes well, dries in a flash. Packs without wrinkles, what more can you ask for? (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this dress Love this dress, so comfortable and excellent for taking away. Folds up to nothing and takes up no room in my suitcase. Can wear casual or dress it up with a shawl or nice sweater. So glad I purchased this. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for hot humid weather Once I discovered these dresses I wore them constantly while in Hawaii living in a house that was not air conditioned. They are much cooler and more comfortable during the day than cotton or rayon, and dry quickly if caught in a rain shower. The medium fit well in a 34 bra but not in a 36.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this dress This dress is very comfortable, keeps me cool (the material is light), and looks great - I highly recommend it. I love it so much I bought a second one to have different colors. The material is a bit clingy so I recommend buying it in a looser-fitting size unless you want a tight-fitting look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Dress I love this dress goes from the heat of Toronto summers from the water or the trail straight to dinner. Washes well, and does not pick when in the wash or when around jewlery or Velcro. I purchased 3 I love them so much. I in a pinch a wear I have worn them as nightie when traveling Washes in the sink and dries in a heartbeat. My favorite dress. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ticks all the boxes! I was looking for a dress to wear in South America this fall, something light and packable that can be rinsed out easily. I tried this dress on in the store and was very pleased with it but not the colours they had left in stock. I found another colour online that I liked much better on me. This will be the dress I throw on after snorkeling,after a sweaty hike or to wander through a market. It is very light and soft. My one con with this dress is that the bodice seam could be a bit lower, however I have that problem. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for warm summers! I really like this dress! The material helps to keep me cooler in the Arizona heat. It's an unusual fabric but awesome for cooling off. It was 120 degrees in AZ last week, so it was great to have the dresses!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I couldn't give this dress any less than a perfect rating! I first saw this dress in a travel review for "packable dresses." I purchased it for my daughter to take on a trip to Hawaii. As the day to day photos started to come in my email, I was surprised at the versatility of the dress. From beach coverup,to sightseeing, to hiking ,to dress-up dinners, even to the "twelve hour" flight, the dress kept appearing. She couldn't rave enough about how easy it was to wear, pack, wash and dry her black dress. It was like a second skin. When she returned home, the dress continued to follow her through the summer to beach, Boardwalk, dinner and even work. Needless to say that, now that her honeymoon is coming up, I purchased two more dresses, in different colors, to carry her through any and all situations so that she might enjoy her trip with not a care about her wardrobe. Thank you, Columbia!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dress PFG I love this dress and the fabric is so cool!! I purchased two last summer. Wore them all the time. You can be very causal or dress them up. There are new colours this summer, so I ordered two more. Also, a top of the same fabric, love it!! (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for summer I am 5'2" and 118 pounds. I ordered the xs, and it fits great. The material is so comfortable, I can not wait until it warms up and I can wear it all the time. The only thing I wish it had was a bra or some type of support. Otherwise, it was a good buy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect dress Love this dress. I live in the Caribbean so it is hot, hot, hot here in the summer months. Because this dress is so light weight and soft it is perfect for this climate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW! I bought this dress because I needed something to keep me cool and cover up my sweat (I'll put a man to shame) when it's hot out. All I can say is "WOW". The fabric is light and has almost like an under slip kind of feel but is not sheer/see through. I ordered the extra small and it fits amazing. I am 5'5" and have a more muscular build and my dimensions are 34C, 26 waist, 35 hips and I kind of have a bubble butt ;). This dress hits and hugs all the right spots without looking too tight or too loose. Not too tight in the armpits or across the chest and doesn't sit weird on my butt (like some dresses/skirts do). Seriously, I really, really, like this dress.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Flattering and Modest Dress The material and cut makes this dress very flattering. I can wear a long sleeved t-shirt and leggings under it to keep warm in the winter or without on warmer days. It is modest, yet cute hitting just at the knee (I'm 5'5"). I'll be getting a lot of wear from this dress. I wear a small almost across the board and the Small in this dress fit perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOMEN'S PFG FREEZER™ III DRESS I purchased three of these dresses - different colors. Wear them, wash them and put right on again. I wear dresses all summer because it is more comfortable than shorts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect travel dress! I love wearing dresses. I was looking for a dress that was lightweight and wrinkle free and this fit the bill. I am 5'4" tall weigh 127 lbs. and have a 34DD bustline. I ordered the medium. It is just a little tight on top... But it looks great on, if I sized up to a large it would be too big and too long. The material feels great on and I love the pattern.
Date published: 2016-09-04
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it I was skeptical about buying this dress without trying it on first because I haven't had great luck with other brands of outdoorsy dresses. I absolutely love this one though. The fit was perfect; flattering and comfortable! The colors are great and I feel great wearing this dress in a number of different situations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wife loves its! Bought one of these for my wife and I've ordered 3 more. The material is amazing for the hot climate that we live in. She's loves the fit. She's made it causal or dressed it up.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from So wanted to love it! I kept trying to make this dress work because I so loved what it could have been for me. I first ordered a small, which is my usual size. It fit beautifully, was incredibly comfortable and very well made. It is the perfect dress to wear to work or on the water. However, the empire seam at the bust kept crawling up. I am 5' 6"and relatively high chested so usually have no trouble with empire tops. I tried to figure a way to add an inch to each strap, but ended up giving the dress to my friend who is 5' 2".The bust was still short for her, but not quite so bad. I then tried a medium. Same deal. The medium was too big in the body of the dress, but the bust area again too short. An extra inch on each strap would make this dress perfect. So sad not to be able to have it fit!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely summer dress Perfect dress for warmer weather! Just a bit tight across the chest, but not so anyone but myself will notice; flows nicely from the waist down. Fabric is clingy but not uncomfortably so. Very lightweight and will pack nicely, without wrinkling.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Form fitting, slinky, figure hugging I am 5 foot 6 and 125 lbs, so certainly considered slender. I ordered the small, which was tight at the bust, and showed every flabby bit I possess. I considered ordering a medium, but the clingy fabric would've emphasized my flaws no matter what size, so I returned it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great dress but runs small I find the freezer dress to be the most flattering and feminine of all Columbia dresses. This one though is cut a little smaller than the four others I have from previous seasons. I will return and try the large even though I'm afraid it will gap under the arms. I am generally a true medium 8/10, 5'8'' and 145. Wonderful fabric perfect for hot/humid summer days. Would love to see a version that was about 3 inches longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice dress i love this little dress to wear going out or even around the camp after a nice hot shower she is nice and comfortable to wear. you can wear it with leggings and a nice long sleeve shirt underneath or just with flip flops. it fits true to size i am 5'7" 160 and the large fits me well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Dress Love wearing dresses whatever I am doing & this one is NO exception! I purchased this to wear fly fishing in Hawaii last month & it was just so cool (wore bike shorts underneath too in case the wind got the best of me)! Am going to get another one for the summer :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More, please! I love this dress. It's perfect for travel, very comfortable and doesn't take up much room in the suitcase. Despite the thin fabric, it doesn't cling or show unflattering bumps. Size small fits me perfectly at 120 lbs, 5'3". The neckline is flattering but not too revealing, which is great. My only complaint is that when I try to order this and other similar dresses from Columbia, the colour selection is often limited to black. Please put some more vibrant coloured simple dresses out there!
