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 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 used many different types of these neck gaiters and I have to say that this one beats them all. It has the comfortable and coolest material that I have tried. I am a offshore charter boat captain on the west coast of Florida working 5-6 days a week, these sure help keeping the sun off my neck.

I bike, hike, and walk in the extreme desert heat iof Arizona. It keeps you significantly cooler and protects your neck and head from the sun, and possible skin cancer. It can be bunched or folded over to cover and cool your neck, it's long enough to pull over and cover your head and ears, for extreme heat conditions. I love it!

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

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.

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.

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.

This neck gaiter is just what I needed. I work outside for a good portion of the day. It keeps my neck and face cool. This is better than constantly having to put on sunblock. I use this gaiter in conjunction with other Columbia Omnishade and Omnifreeze clothing.
This is also useful when I go hiking and outside during my free time.

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.

I HATE SUNSCREEN! I hate having to apply and keep applying sunscreen. A couple years back I rafted the Grand Canyon and I had a bad case of heat stroke because I didn't keep the sun off the back of my neck and didn't drink enough water. I recently returned from Havasupai in the Grand Canyon and this thing kept the sun off my neck, kept me cool and any time dirt was kicked up I just slipped the gaiter over my nose and I could breath while everyone else was choking on dust. I raft a lot and I'm going to take this with me on every trip I go on. Love this thing.
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.

We live in Hawaii where it is very humid. This buff works when we are doing yard work and then all the way to the beach to keep the sun off and cool air in. You really can feel the difference. It is like having a little air conditioner on your neck and face.

I used this everyday on a 70 mile canoe trip. It was awesome to cover up without lathering sunscreen.
It also helped keep me cool when I would get it wet. I had not quality issues with it. All seams held tight.

This thing is amazing! I used it today in Florida fishing on the Intra Coastal in 100+° temperatures and it kept my neck cool. It actually made it half way bearable being outside in this Florida heat. Once I wet it, I rang a little water out and left it pretty wet. The water temperature is in the upper 80s.... once I put it on the seabreeze kept it cool on my neck. It was amazing how cool it felt. It lasted for about an hour until I had to dunk it again. It is pretty awesome how it works! Highly recommend this! You won't be disappointed!
