While at ICAST a few weeks ago I was fortunate to try out Columbia’s Omni Freeze Zero technology firsthand. I was very impressed by the cooling abilities of the technology, and so were the ICAST voters. Columbia Sportswear’s “Air Gill Chill Zero” took Best of Show this year. Check out the video below from ICAST, where Andrea Pallavicini demonstrates how those little blue rings work.
Columbia plans to release the Omni Freeze Zero technology in the Spring of 2013. Hopefully it’s early Spring, rather than later.
