I bought these shirts for my husband as he works in a very warm environment. He loves these shirts (and he is particular) as they do not stick or cling to his skin as he perspires. Definitely a thumbs up product!
I would recommend this product.

This shirt keeps me cool. I forget I'm supposed to be hot. I marked "true to size". But who knows? I got an extra large and it fits me the way I want. Size depends on what you want. Will be getting more for next season.
I would recommend this product.

The large is substantially larger than the PFG's 2 years ago.
The white has faint small blue squares through out the material taking away from the all white look.

I like this shirt a lot so I got it in multiple colors, including the white shirt. But what you don't see in the picture is the little "cooling" beads or whatever they are can be seen through the white. So instead of it being solid white, it looks like a white shirt with blue polka dots. Wish the picture was correct!
I would recommend this product.

While training for a 13 mile paddleboard race in SW FL; I was constantly battling 90 degree heat and 70% humidity and overheating was a constant concern. After wearing the shirt; I noticed a substantial difference in my body heat and ability to push through the race without being extremely fatigued in spending 3 1/2 hours in the heat in the race. This definitely made the difference in my ability to perform and I would recommend this product to anyone who is an endurance athlete and needs cooling abilities
I would recommend this product.

Very comfortable and surprisingly warm. Not a thermal base by any means, but distinctly warmer than two other Columbia "cooling" shirts I bought. Its nice to have this as a base layer offering a little variety over the other synthetics' feeling of cool.
I would recommend this product.

I own 8 of these shirts, both short and long sleeve. They are hands down the best shirts I have ever worn. They don't stretch or loose shape after repeated washings. They don't retain odor after working out. They dry fast. The logo stays put and doesn't peel off. I haven't been able to find a shirt that fits as well as these or keeps performing in everyday use, from work to workout, then to weekend hiking. PLEASE COLUMBIA DON'T EVER STOP MAKING THESE!!!!
I would recommend this product.

For reference I am 5'8", and 175lbs.
This shirt in Large fits me great, a little loose fitting, which is how I like to wear t-shirts. Everything fits and feels true to size, materials are nice and feel good against skin, technology is there and works as advertised.
I could fit a Medium no problem but I intentionally ordered a size up because I like it that way. Will be ordering 5 or so more for this summer.
I would recommend this product.

Your comments are exactly how I feel. I'm 5' 6" and 173 lbs. I too could fit a medium but like my shirts a little bigger (size large) to allow extra room for freedom of movement. I also purchased two of the Thistletown Park shirts but like the extra room with the Zero Rules. Thank you.

Wow, what a great shirt. Keeps you very cool in the hottest of temperatures and very fast to dry as well. Fits a little loose, but that is the way I like my tshirts to fit. Omni-freeze is a good as advertised. I will be ordering more for sure so that I have plenty to use when there are hot outside activities.
I would recommend this product.

I use the Zero Rules shirts anytime I am going to be out in the summer heat for long periods of time. I have recently returned from a trip to Disney and Sea World where these shirts kept me cool and comfortable while drying almost instantly after riding water rides and dodging the rain. I also use these shirts to work out in. Omni-Free Tech is great for keeping you cool.
I would recommend this product.
