Don't soak in sweat on sticky summer days. Instead, slip into the Columbia Women's PFG Zero Shirt for sweat-activated cooling, courtesy of the shirt's Omni-Freeze Zero fabric. Additionally, this bright, summery shirt protects you from the sun's harsh rays with its Omni-Shade UPF 50 rating. Note that this shirt features Columbia's Active fit, which runs slightly larger than average.

Love the PFG!

Love this top. I agree with Rebecca M. (below), that it's not a good top for biking. You might as well be wearing an unbuttoned top. What I do like about this top is the cooling properties and sun protection. I also like the design of the shirt - very flattering, with nice cap-like sleeves. I usually am a Medium but in Columbia have found sometimes that I'm more of a Small. So I got the Small and then I've ordered an XS just for fun. I love white. I know it's gonna get dirty and pit stains quick, but I'm just a sucker for white. I don't like the other 2 colors too much (too pale for me). But, you can't please everyone, can you? Give this top a go and see how your body fits in it. I think this might be a top people need to decide for themselves how they feel about the fit, only if they try it out.
Way too low cut

I bought this as a casual/performance shirt for summer riding - not as technical as a bike jersey, not as casual and better wicking than a t-shirt. Unfortunately, it's cut way too low. I don't think I own a bra that I can wear underneath this without exposing the straps. As for leaning forward while riding my bike, forget about it.
I ordered a medium, which has works for me in other Columbia shirts, and I don't think sizing down to a small would make enough of a difference. Which is a shame, because I own other shirts in this fabric and I love how well it wicks and doesn't smell - perfect for casual summer rides.
