Women's Coolest Cool™ Boy Short is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Skimpy on cooling I purchased the boy shorts because of the Omni-freeze fabric. Imagine my surprise to find that the only portion of the shorts that had the Omni-freeze fabric was a small band from side to side across the small of the back.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not what I thought has the cooling fabric in the waist band. When ordering this I had assumed it would be all over, or at least in the crotch too. I wore this item in Haiti. it was a very humid climate. I didn't notice any cooling effects from this product. and was told by my companions that it was too humid for the sweat to evaporate, which was required for the product to work. Not sure if that was true.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from WHERE'S THE OMNI-FREEZE...!?!? Sad to say, I will be returning these. Ordered these boy shorts almost two weeks ago, and was SO EXCITED to finally have them delivered yesterday (I have a couple of omni-freeze zero shirts that I LOVE). Opened the packaging this morning, and was shockingly disappointed to discover that there was only a SMALL piece of this material at the back of the boy shorts, near the waistband. Re-read the description to see if I missed something. Nope. Not even 1/8 of the shorts contain the cooling technology advertised. NOT WORTH THE $35 PRICETAG. If I just wanted wicking boyshorts, I would have bought a less expensive pair.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from not as advertised there is only a strip of the omni-freeze material on the back waist band! thought the idea was for the whole short to be cooling. Work outside in Florida , this just made me hotter

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Could have been better My biggest disappointment is that there is only a tiny bit of OmniFreeze Zero in these boy shorts. Other than a small strip of the material located only near the back waist area, these are no different than much less expensive boy shorts. These could have been so much better if there was actually a significant amount of the cooling material in their construction.
