I use the bandana to hold my hair back out of my face and, because of the light material and giving fabric, I can wear it for over 12 hours and not even know it's there.

Bandana makes you feel cooler. I went kayak fishing yesterday in 100 heat for 7 hours and it held up. I wore it under a floppy hat. I also wear it around the yard to do chores.

I wear the neck scarves with your collarless shirts to protect my neck from sun while gardening. Unfortunately they are barely big enough to tie around my neck.

Great bandana. I wear it while gardening and walking in the morning and it does definitely keep you cool. Haven't tried on my neck but it does work on your hairline well. I keep
It in my purse now for when I walk ove lunch at work. I used my points to purchase it so it cost me less than 5 dollars. What a great product!!
I would recommend this product.

I like this product. It is extremely functional and versatile. It fits snug when tide around my large head (size 7 and 7/8 hat), otherwise 5 stars. Wicks sweat away fast (much better than cotton) and keeps me cool. What else could you ask for?
I would recommend this product.

In the past, I've always worn large hats to keep the sun off my thinning hair on top of my head. I love visors but my head gets blistered by the sun. I starting wearing a neck gaitor or buff on my head as a Doo-Rag when it's warm so I can keep the sun off my bald spot. However, during warm weather, it always made me feel many degrees warmer until I bought my first Freezer Zero Bandana. Now, whenever I get warm and sweat, it actually feels cooler on top and also keeps sweat from running down my face and forehead onto my glasses. Just another great product by the fine people at Columbia!!
I would recommend this product.

Product works well and can be worn in several ways. Keeps my as cool, and helps protects my head (& forehead) from skin cancer due to exposure from the sun, as well as absorbing forehead sweat which would run into my eyes.

As a full time fishing guide, I really appreciate any clothing article that makes my day on the water comfortable. I purchased the Zero Freeze Bandana to protect and cool from the blazing Minnesota sun. This bandana not only protects from harmful UV's but cools at the same time.
I would recommend this product.

All products that advertise a cooling effect without refrigeration, from house swamp coolers to clothing, rely on evaporative cooling. This means that as the moisture evaporates, it creates a cooling effect. The lower the humidity, the greater the cooling effect. That's why western desert dwellers love their house swamp coolers but you never see them back east. If you are operating in a high humidity environment you may be disappointed in the cooling effect of any product, including this one. I live in a desert and cool my house and myself with evaporative cooling so this product works well for me. I've been using cotton bandanas for years for sun protection and cooling when wet. This bandana is very soft and more comfortable than cotton, and it cools better. Definitely a winner.
I would recommend this product.

Great product.
I have used this around my neck in 90 degree heat and Michigan's humidity and it has kept me cool all day without re-wetting.
I have also used as a skull cap. It's a little small, but the fabric does stretch.
The Foliage color is a little brighter green than it looks in the pictures.
I would recommend this product.

Just doesn't work the way I thought it would. By the description I thought it would keep the back of my neck cooler. We live in the deep south and I guess maybe it's not made for the humidity down this way.

This bandana keeps you cool! I have used it on several +100 degree days in the high desert and I have no complaints. On a really hot day, I like to get the bandana wet and drop it on my shoulders. Wow. The fabric is durable and comfortable.

I picked this up as a last minute purchase before heading off for a 12 day hike in the Alps. I have to say, I loved this bandanna. It was great at keeping the sweat out of my eyes and when it was cold I simply pulled it down over my ears. It was easy to wash every night and was completely dry by morning. I would highly recommend this product for any hiking trek.

works better then a cloth bandana as far as keeping water out of my eyes and fit is nice. But this will not keep you any cooler. Sweat just as much if not more wearing this . DO NOT BUY IF YOU WANT COOL RELIEF.....

received the product, gave it a test run on my next 2 times while mowing of our lawn (pushmower). Had it tied in the do-rag style covering my head. underneath a brimmed straw hat...it did wick away some moisture...as mowing and edging went on I was getting hot and sweaty... was waiting for that "cooling effect" to kick in....never happened... straw hat on or off. While it is better than a regular bandana IT IS NOT worth the price paid. The sales pitch made it out to be more than it really was, and over shot the runway on this items true performance capabilities. Would not buy again, does not live up to the HYPE.
I do not recommend this product.

I purchased the bandana and neck gaiter at the same time. The neck gaiter does the same job but a little better as far as fit for me. No hair may be a factor. I'd get a couple neck gaiters if I had to do it again. This in no way means the bandana doesn't work. The Omni-Freeze technology is fantastic no matter how you choose to wear it.
I would recommend this product.

My wife got me this to wipe my head. I shave my head, and when I go out and work up a sweat, I need to wipe off. This is one of the few items I've tried that actually COOLS my head when I wipe off the sweat.

Just received two of these. One is for me and the other for my Chihuahua, Stevi. They work just as described and we look forward to a much cooler summer. I will have to alter Stevi's a little due to her size and the size of the bandana, but I expected that. The technology is amazing, keep up the good work.
I would recommend this product.

Not for Dogs
onJuly 1, 2013
This bandana may look cute on your dog, but you shouldn't have any illusions that it will keep your dog cool. Dogs sweat through their feet, not through the skin elsewhere on their bodies.
The only way this bandana could be helpful in keeping your dog cool is if you soak it in cold water before putting it on the dog. Cool or cold water on a dog's skin will help to keep a dog cool, but their natural cooling methods are by panting and sweating through their feet. Except for their feet, they do not perspire like humans.
