Columbia PFG Freezer Zero Polo for Men
Very Cool Not Clean
I play golf every weekend with the guys, and was really excited to get this shirt in and wear it in my hot Texas environment. I ordered the white polo and it performed very well until I got home and tried to wash it. I had clearly been sweating in it all day and the dirt and sweat from the golf corse formed a terrible brown coating over the stark white collar and shirt. I tried washing it several times, soaking it, I even tried bleaching it, but to no avail. I literally wore this one time. I don't buy $80 disposable shirts. It works as advertised, but very disappointed that it would not get clean. Can you send me another one!?

Cool, well fitting shirt
The Men’s Men's PFG Freezer Zero™ Polo with just right fit. The shirt material is a soft feeling material. It is a bit more "formal" looking than the t-shirt style. That's a plus look in those Keys restaurants and evening spots too. Also a casual business look. At the end of a hot temperature day I still feel comfortable, cooler, and not as worn down from the heat and humidity. The back vent openings are very beneficial. All in all, I'm extremely satisfied with the Columbia PFG Freezer Zero™ technology. It's top of the line for my usage in the South Florida weather.

PFG Freezer Polo
I live in Houston, Texas - -the home of heat and humidity. I purchased this shirt to use while playing golf. It filled that role as advertised. My issue with the product is its fragility when being washed. I got some dirt or a small stain on the shirt. My attempt to clean it using full strength laundry detergent resulted in the little blue circles going away in the area being cleaned. My expectations for a product designed to be used outdoors would be for it to be more robust.

Good shirt for use where you live
I bought this shirt specifically for an extended trip to Thailand. It’s a pretty good shirt, but not perfect.
It is comfortable outdoors in the sun, and it wicks away a lot of moisture. I can’t detect any particular effect from the Omni-Freeze ZERO technology.
It’s also a good shirt to wear indoors in Thailand, because it insulates from the notoriously over-air-conditioned shopping malls, private cars, and tour busses.
My main criticism is that it doesn’t dry fast enough for travel in general, let alone travel in the tropics. If you have a couple of days, it will eventually drip dry. I washed mine in Bangkok before leaving for Chiang Mai, and left it hanging to dry at my friend’s place. Ideally, however, clothes washed tonight are dry tomorrow morning, and this shirt just can’t do that.
So it’s a good shirt to wear when I’m home, and I’ll wear it on day hikes, bike rides, etc.
