Columbia Freezer Zero™ Neck Gaiter

I would definitely recommend this buff. I have a couple of different brand buffs but this is definitely my favorite one. I work doing water quality in the Everglades down in south Florida. Everyday it's hot and muggy, and Freezer Zero Neck Gaiter helps me survive the day. I'm definitely buying more because I'm wearing the same one everyday at work.
I would recommend this product.

I spend my time fishing in a South GA.....The omni freeze zero technology is legit. I have used many neck gaiter products...all pale in comparison to this product!

I hate applying sunscreen over and over again when my day on the trail is long. This gaiter makes sure I don't get sun or windburnt and keeps me cool doing it.
Sure, I get a few looks, but they understand when they go home with red faces and weird collar suntan lines. Plus, I look like a hiking ninja...what could be better?
I would recommend this product.

This product works great for blocking sun and keeping me cool, but it fogs up my sunglasses when I exhale if I pull it over my nose. That is my only complaint, and it is an inevitable problem with these things. All brands will do this. Otherwise, it works great for protecting me from the sun and the Omni Freeze Zero material is great!
I would recommend this product.

Great stretch but it still does not fully cover the bottom of my neck. I have pronounced trapezius muscles that give me a bit of a "bull neck" or weightlifter type neck. I would really like to see longer length and some added material to protect the base of my neck to include the spot above the buttons on my shirt and at the top of my back. I work on a military base and spend everyday outside for at least a few hours bending, stretching and moving around in full sunlight.
I would recommend this product.

I bought this for when I ride my motorcycle. It seals my neck to my face, preventing cold air from going down my jacket or up my helmet. I took it on a very cold ride and it did a great job keeping the cold air out. That's impressive considering how light the material is.
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.
