Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfort Purchased this shirt to go on a boating outing in June. Very comfortable to wear in the heat and humidity. I love the color and material. It is so light you do not feel you are wearing a shirt. I would buy more if they had more colors and my size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Summer Tee Love, love, love this shirt that I decided to get all available colors. It does what it says - keeps you cool and dry no matter how hot it is. I cannot find anything like it and its perfect for me since I am always hot. I even bought the black twice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for summer heat I bought this top and used it in the Houston heat and it worked great! I usually order size S, but I gave it a try with the XS and it fits very well. No tight not loose. I will be buying others if they have it in my size

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these shirts ! I bought every color available. I love the Omni freeze shirts. Keeps me cool on the hottest of days. I have recommended these to several people. Snagging them for $20/each made this purchase a must, what a great sale. I have some of these in long sleeve too, can't say enough about these shirts, buy them you won't be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wide shoulders I have a large chest and broad shoulders. Would order down a size due to stretch in fabric.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for heat I have purchased 3 of these shirts and love them all. They are perfect for the heat and humidity of summer and are comfortable all day long. They are also great for travel since they do not wrinkle, can be washed by hand if needed and dry quickly. I wish they came in more colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My New Travel Favorite Just got back from 3 weeks in the heat of El Salvador. I brought 2 of these with me and I ended up pretty much ignoring my other shirts since these were so great. They actually DO everything they are advertised to do. They resist odor, feel light and cool, keep you from feeling sweaty, and dry in a matter of hours after washing in the sink. Also very important to me (and a rare find) is that the pink heather does not show sweaty pits! I'm so excited to see these are available again so I can get more colors! I have the white and it's true that the blue dots show through but I quickly got over that. Function over form! That said, and even though I don't care for t-shirts in general, they do have enough of a fit to look somewhat cute. These are now a must-have in my travel backpack! I usually wear a M or L (5'6") and the M was the better fit for me at 155 lb, then I switched to Large at 170. I don't like my shirts too baggy but at this sizing they were still loose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Summer I have been waiting for this item to come back from stock. This shirt is my favorite to wear during the summer heat.
Date published: 2018-02-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from great I don't feel the freeze but I don't sweat either. Easy to hand wash if need be traveling. Does pick up a smell after one day of wear. Great for humid days which is why I bought 3 of them.Lightweight and comfortable. I am 5'6" and 130# and medium is loose enough that it does not show my love handles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps me cool! I wear this while doing moderate cardio & it keeps me cool & dry & odor-free.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from blue pattern shows through I was quite disappointed when I received this top. I hadn't zoomed in on the picture and needed a white, quick dry t-shirt. It is comfortable, fits well but the blue sub zero pattern shows clearly through the fabric. It will be OK for hiking but not for anything else. I have had other versions and none of them showed through the fabric.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality String on hem was loose and when washed caused fabric to run, very disappointed only wore one time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect top This top is amazing. The v neck is flattering for all body types and is really a feature for staying cool. The top is very stylish with the extra stitching on the sleeves. It is not just a boring pullover. The sleeves aren't too short as a lot of them are. It is maintenance free--stains wipe off easily, and it is wash and wear. If it were four way stretch like some of the former Titanium tops, it would be perfect. When you are hot and sweaty, it's so much easier to take off a top that stretches in every direction. Are you listening Columbia?--four way stretch and more v necks. Love, love, love this top. Of course, I have it in the long sleeve as well. I have it in multiple colors and duplicates. The modern classic fit is perfect for any age group--shape definition without being too clingy. I'm 5'4", 140 pounds, and a large fits nicely. A winner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this shirt I ordered this shirt because I love the coral version of it(my favorite shirt for hunting). It fits really nicely and is perfect for working out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy, cute, and cool Love this shirt! Very flattering fit, keeps me cool, looks nice with khaki shorts, as well as athletic shorts. Love all the colors. Does not fade or shrink when washed. Fits very true to size. You won't be disappointed if you get one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shirt Light weight shirt great for hiking. True to size (bought a small for a 5'7" gal). Color was spot on. Good quality shirt. would buy again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing These shirts look great and they function is amazing. Unlike other "quick dry" tshirts, you never feel the shirt is wet. You start to realize you are sweating and before you know it you feel dry and col. The material never looks sweated through. I am throwing away my old "quick dry" shirts and will continue with this. I wish this was offered in a crew neck as I need to protect my neck from prior sun damage. Great shirt, now own 3 colors.!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not As Dexcribed The shirt is a great fit and look but I didn't find that it kept you cool or was wicking. Might be because the heat has been 105.
Date published: 2015-08-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect top It is one of those tops which you can wear it on a backpacking trip or going out in town. Great fit. Cool feature.
Date published: 2015-07-03
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice for hiking I usually wear a medium (my measurements are 37-31-39) but definitely needed the large since I like a little bit of looseness. Very lightweight comfortable shirt, good for hiking and workouts, but doesn't cool quite as much as I expected. Colors (both the coral and chameleon) are much brighter than they appeared on the site.
Date published: 2015-06-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product I love these shirts! The technology truly works to keep you cool, even with hot flashes in the summer humidity. I especially like the modern fit - not so tight; very breathable. The sizes seem to run true. I wear a small or small petite in other clothing and the small works fine for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great work out shirt I love this shirt. Ordered it to hike in, but used it as a workout shirt too. 5'3" 130 lbs and ordered a size small. Fits great.
Date published: 2015-06-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from love this shirt for hiking This is a great warm weather shirt. It doesn't cling like so many other shirts, which I like. When it is hot, I like shirts to fit loose while still flattering. It does run slightly small. I wear a L shirt in work clothes and sized up based on other reviews. This shirt keeps me cooler than other shirts. It washes well and the colors are gorgeous. Happy I found this shirt!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sizing Depends on Your Build I purchased the omni freeze because I overheat in race's..a friend wore these during the Hood To Coast Relay. The material does what it says it suppose to do, even better when water gets on it! Problem with the size, I bought large based on reviews and It fits fit like a bag. I'm petite build, usually wear a medium (I am not large busted). My suggestion is if your lean, go with your usual size. If you have a little fuller build, go up a size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I have 3 of these shirts and love them! I took 2 on the John Muir Trail this summer, they were perfect! Wore them day and night as my base layer. Just the right fit and length, not too tight, quick drying, cooling, light & packable, yummy colors!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable I purchased this shirt to try on a bike packing trip over labor day weekend. I found it to be very comfortable and soft to the touch. Fit was good, slightly snug, but did stretch slightly as I washed and wore it over the weekend. Now it's very comfortable to wear. I didn't have any issues with the material piling wear my back pack straps wear rubbing throughout the trip. At night i would hand wash all of my items and this shirt was the fastest drying of all my gear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit! This top fits well (36DD). So many times I find that the outdoor tops are tight fitting. I am thankful to have a wonderful looking top that also offers great moisture protection.
Date published: 2014-08-28
Rated 3 out of 5 by from well-made but runs small The shirt is well-made but it runs small. As far as cooling, it's just okay. The long sleeve version of this shirt works better for sun protection and cooling. I like my shirts a little loose. I ordered up a size as other reviewers mentioned the shirt ran small.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Makes You Hot and Sweaty I bought this shirt after I tried the sleeves in a sporting good store. The material is cooling when its wet, but it does not breathe like a cotton T shirt. The nylon is snug and doesn't allow air to flow around your skin in the breeze, so it makes you feel clammy and hot. I tried it walking up a sweat in a theme park and it made me overheated. I wore it motorcycling and the breeze ruffled through the shoulder area, but didn't provide cooling. It wasn't until I wore the sweaty shirt into an air conditioned store that it felt cooling. I wore it to a night time outdoor race track where there was a breeze and it didn't breathe, just made me sweaty but not cool. I always wear a Large in Columbia shirts so I bought this a Large too, but my husband thinks its too tight. I personally do not think its too tight, but it does fit close and doesn't allow for air to circulate like my cotton tshirts do. The material is very thin and stretchy so if you have a muffin top tummy it will show. Looks best tucked in and since the point is to absorb sweat and provide cooling it can't do that if its untucked. I will keep and continue to wear this shirt since the pink color is bright and fun, and it does provide omni shade sunscreen. I have not tried it wet, by wetting it down before wearing and perhaps that is what it needs to feel cooling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great top but mis-named color! I love the top, but there's no way that laser red remotely resembles the color red. Online it looks like the top is an orangey-red, but it's really a bright, bright orange in person!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific work out shirt I love this shirt. It look great on my body and fits just right in the right places. Provides sun protection and is long enough that when I am in the gym, provides coverage during all the moves. Keeps the sweat off as well as possible, too. Highly recommend.
