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.
I would recommend this product.

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!

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.
I would recommend this product.

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.

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!
I would recommend this product.

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 snugs...it 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.
I would recommend this 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.
I would recommend this product.

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!
I would recommend this product.

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.

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.
I would recommend this product.

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!

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.
I would recommend this product.

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.
I would recommend this product.

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.
I do not recommend this product.
