Summary

Great long sleeve shirt for hot weather use, offering 30 SPF protection, great comfort, and quick drying properties. Runs pretty large.

Pros

  • Comfortable
  • Attractive
  • Quick drying
  • Cool

Cons

  • Runs big

The Freezer II is a great long-sleeved shirt for hot weather use. I always try to wear long sleeves if I'm going to be fishing or kayaking for any length of time in strong sun, and this is a great shirt for such use.

The material is substantial (not super thin) but very smooth and comfortable next to the skin, and the SPF 30 protection adds to the sun blocking efficiency. It breathes really well and dries fast. I like the look of it a lot, with a neat two tone design that's unique.

This shirt, like most from Columbia PFG (Performance Fishing Gear) line, runs pretty big presumably to give wearers good freedom of movement while casting, reeling, catching, releasing, etc. I almost always wear XL but could easily have sized down to a large if it weren't for my long arms that need the XL sleeve length. If your arms aren't long, consider sizing down unless you like a really loose, baggy fit.

All in all a winner of a shirt — nice looking, blocks the sun, keeps you cool.
