Customer reviews for Columbia Freezer Zero™ Neck Gaiter

Columbia Freezer Zero™ Neck Gaiter

Like its cousin the Freezer Zero Bandana, this Omni-Freeze® ZERO neck gaiter is the ultimate cooling accessory—with sweat-activated cooling technology, which reacts with sweat to lower the temperature of the material. Built-in UPF 50 seals out UV rays for supreme protection from the sun.

I have now purchased 3 editions of the neck gaiter. Each one is improved. I like the new improved cooling system. Also, the later freeze models have creating perforations. I pull these gaiters up over my face & to the top of my head. I use this item in the Summer on the Eastern Shore, down in Florida & on my annual 2 week expeditions to Aruba. I carry extras with me to give as presents to the crews I fish with.
I would recommend this product.

your review made me get 1. Just wondering, what polo shirt and arm sleeves are those in your review photos? They make a nice suit with the gaiter.

In the sun I will not be without the Neck Gaiter. I pull it up over my ears and nose to get complete sun protection. Make sure you completely tuck it under your shirt so your neck does not get burned.

The neck gaitor is cooling, but if you are wearing to keep the heat off of your face, it does not stay up over the nose that well.

We just returned from the Galapagos where just about every naturalist and guest was wearing a neck gator. Getting ready for our next adventure to Africa, I realized the importance of having these gators to shield the intense sun. The neck gator is cool and lightweight. You can wear it many different ways--up on your neck or head or even part of your face. We bought the 2 blue colors, a white, and fossil. No more worrying about sun on the back of the neck or places where you forget sunscreen.
I would recommend this product.

perfect for under my motorcycle helmet... the air channels in the helmet are just enough to activate the OFZ material, and enhance the cooling sensation of helmets with even the most limited airflow

This buff works perfectly in the sun for fishing. I no longer have to worry about re applying sun screen every time I sweat or get wet. This product also makes a great headband when you are hiking in the forest from fishing spot to fishing spot. Buy 2 of these and keep one as a backup.
I would recommend this product.

I have used other manufacturer's similar products in the past and wanted to try Columbia's since they produce so many other awesome products. Ordered a white one for my son and a fossil for myself. Finally got to use it several weekends ago and it fit and felt awesome. The material was just the right weight and did not feel like it was sufficating you. Also, once the Freeze Zero got damp from sweat, it felt even better against my cheeks and neck and helped cool my body temp down as well. Great job Columbia.....keep up the nice work and providing quality products.
I would recommend this product.

I have may Neck Gaiters and the freezer zero line are my favorite. If I'm not producing enough sweet I'll just pour a little water on the back of my neck and it stays cold. It also works great for keeping the sun off of me on long days of Tarpon Fishing.
I would recommend this product.

I bought the neck gaiter and the bandana not realizing that the neck gaiter would be a better head cooler neck cooler combo. Many of my work buddies have inquired about my awesome new sun protection as well as many in my local bicycling crew. It's been very hot here lately and this Omni-freeze technology has been a life saver. I rinse it out at the end of the day and let it air dry.
I would recommend this product.

bought this for husband and self, along with the bandana that were said to cool and wick as well.
Used mine while mowing our lawns, it wicked most moisture and didn't make the heat worse, never got that "cooling effect" didn't get sunburned, but that is no real feate... I could have made a tube-like contraption out of a sleeve of a cotton t-shirt, I wouldn't get sunburned where it covered, cotton absorbs moisture...
the only good thing as the material transfers eat away.... never got a "cooling feeling though. Would NOT buy again. IS NOT worth the amount paid in the least for an average product that does not live up to the HYPE.
I do not recommend this product.

Purchased this product to protect the incision on my neck from surgery from the sun.
The product keeps my neck cool and provides SPF 50 while covering my neck and the area of the incision while it heals.

This neck gaiter works no better than any other polyester gaiter on the market. The weave is so tight on this gaiter when it is wet it is impossible to breath through. The freezer zero effect is no better than any other evaporative effect from any other material. I think I'll go back to my trusted cotton bandana.
I do not recommend this product.

To be honest, half the reason I bought this Neck Gaiter for $30 was because the bright blue color was a perfect match to the trim on my Harley's paint job.
I used the gaiter for the first time yesterday on a 160 mile bike ride with the temperature in the mid-nineties most of the day.
The gaiter worked great. I wet it down at two rest stops during the day. It protected my neck from sunburn and helped keep me comfortable all day. It is a quality piece of gear and actually a good value for the money. Definitely a big advance over the common bandana, and now an essential part of my riding gear.
I would recommend this product.

I fish in the bright summer sun of Louisiana and I need good UV protection. I don't like to wear sunscreen, and it bothers me when it gets in my eyes....so I wear a gaiter to cover most of my face, neck and ears. I have tried other brands of gaiters and prefer this one. This gaiter breathes better than other brands and is lighter weight, cooler, and less noticeable.
I would recommend this product.

So glad we finally found something that can keep our son's face and neck protected from the sun while he plays baseball. He has skin disorder and is VERY sun sensitive but a great baseball player. This allows him to keep from burning and peeling. He wears it in all positions except when pitching so we are delighted. Great match for arm guards of same fabric
I would recommend this product.
