Normally I wear a medium in Columbia gear but this shirt is small for a medium. Unless you like it tight, if you're a medium, order a large. I won't return the shirt since my girlfriend likes it and in general I like it too.
I would recommend this product.

This shirt (Color: Wham) is awesomely obnoxious. The Omni-freeze zero material is great for workouts and hikes.

I bought this shirt for my husband to wear while working in the summer heat. He was pleasantly surprised at the cooling effect it had on his skin. I will be purchasing more soon. I was glad I read the reviews on the shirt first and saw it ran a little small. Be sure to order a size up.
I would recommend this product.

I have purchased many 'size medium' items from Columbia in the past, with no problems. However this shirt definitely runs small. It cost me $10.60 to UPS it back for a replacment size. :-(

Have worn the shirt 3 times in the first 10 days I had it. Really comfortable and light weight. Wicks really well. It does run a little small. I normally wear a L in Columbia and all my other shirts are great. This one I would have done an XL
I would recommend this product.

I ordered the white shirt for my son as a gift. He is an avid tennis player so the cooling feature will be good. I was surprised that the fabric has very light blue polka dots in it. They were not apparent in the photograph of the product.

I still get hot, but not AS hot- and I can tell the difference. Quicker cool downs as well and not as heat exhausted after 5 miles in the heat and humidity. Note: I sweat A LOT typically. So activating it was almost instant. LOL.
I would recommend this product.

My son works in a factory where it is very warm at all times, usually over !00 degrees. He loves the shirt, says it really makes a difference. Too bad it's so expensive or I'd buy him more.

This is absolutely the best warm weather running shirt I own and I have more than 50 in my closet. It's soft, light and wicks sweat away quickly. So comfortable I actually forgot that I was even wearing a shirt. I have worn and washed the shirt several times and the fabric holds up like new.
The technology works. As the shirt drew sweat away from my body I started to feel a slight cooling effect.
Love this shirt. Bought two for me and two for my son who feels the same as I do. I will be ordering a few more in the near future.
I would recommend this product.

I bought two of these shirts for work. I'm a Deputy Sheriff and it gets warm under the bullet proof vest in the summer. Somehow these shirts manage to evaporate my sweat even with a small amount of air flow.
I also run and they do feel cooler and the shirt dries out to an acceptable level. The shirt does not does not rub on my chest! No more Band-Aids on long runs.
I plan on getting more of these shirts.
I would recommend this product.

As a fabric development expert I couldn't wait to try my new Omni-Freeze shirt and have to say it really is the most comfortable shirt I have ever worn. Playing tennis in the heat can be challenging and actually compared to regular shirt while playing and it was obvious how much cooler and more comfortable it was.
Great stuff!
I would recommend this product.

I live in Savannah GA where it gets quite hot in the summers. Having just finished my 2nd 1/2 marathon, I registered for a marathon in the fall (which means training throughout the summer), I was hoping this shirt would help for the heat near the end of early morning runs. Not only is it not my go to shirt on warm days, but it actually doesn't even get used unless it's cooler out.
Pros:
The shirt is very comfortable.... that's about it.
Cons:
-the shirt 'cools' a little bit, more like prevents you from heating up... HOWEVER, since the shirt doesn't breathe at all, the cooling benefit is lost as your body over heats.
- I wore the shirt about 4-5 times (enough to lose faith in it on warm days), and when hanging it up today, I realized the 'Blue circles' are now missing from several areas that rub (ie, chest) while running. I'm not talking, just a few circles, but entire credit card sized sections.
So all in all, a comfortable shirt that isn't very good in the heat and doesn't last for more then 4 or 5 runs / washings. Don't waste your money.
