I have a neurological illness that prevents me from sweating and therefore my body overheats easily. My wife bought this shirt for me hoping it would work to keep me cool. I wet the shirt in the sink, wring it out gently, and wear it to play golf or anything else that is strenuous. It keeps my body cool and has been great in allowing me to have a more normal life.
I would recommend this product.

This is my second Zero Rules shirt. My wife and I bought these for overnight hikes with limited laundry facilities. It's great to be able to hand wash them and be able to wear them the next day. Lightweight, durable, and comfortable. Great go-to shirt for active people.
I would recommend this product.

I originally wanted to purchase the Men's Total Zero T-Shirt, but as I understand, this line has been replaced by Zero Rules. The sku of the T-Shirt I wanted to buy is 1521521 - but couldn't find it on Columbia.com or anywhere else so I purchased the new version - Zero Rules T-Shirt (sku 1533311).
The Zero Rules line is a complete disappointment. The shirt is stiff, itchy, feels like a plastic trash bag, and worst of all...is hot (despite the Omni-Freeze tech).
After looking at the labels, I realized that my older Total Zero shirt is 92% Polyester & 8% Elastane - whereas the new Zero Rules shirt is 100% Polyester. I assume this is the difference and what makes the new Zero Rules line so disappointing.
I do not recommend this product.

I purchased this shirt for a river rafting trip down the grand canyon. The shirt looks like it is good quality and will last a long time. It kept me nice and cool and dried relatively quickly when it did get wet from the rapids.
I would recommend this product.

The shirt material doesn't look much different than other "cool" shirts, but on my hour plus bike rides in Texas heat, the shirt became noticeably less wet, meaning my sweat was evaporating faster, keeping me cooler.
I would recommend this product.

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.

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.

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.
