"Very comfortable, looks new for a long time"
A great piece for layering on very cold days as it is quite form fitting and sits well under outer jackets. The outside is smooth (which makes sponging grime off very easy) and the inside is very soft fleece. Keeps its shape and colour for ages and as the exterior is smooth, is does not pill. I'm 5'10 / 140 lb and wear a small (I only fit a thermal layer underneath). The arm length is fine however it is pretty short through the body. If you have a freakishly long torso then maybe this is not the top for you.
This top is so warm, it's almost better without an underlayer. Then you can feel the fleecy goodness next to your skin. This top is warm as an underlayer in the winter or outerlayer in the spring or autumn, and the colour is fabulous (I have the red). What I don't like about it is being 5'11, the proportions in the waist/hips of the top are a bit wrong. It flares out instead of being close to the body, and it's not quite long enough. Though this just gives me a good excuse to practice proper tucking-in of my underlayers into my trousers, so the problem is easily rectified. Overall, this top is easily worth the money paid for it and will last for ages.
Love this underwear top! i ordered this on 8/18 and it was shipped on 8/19 and delivered on 8/22 on the regular free shipping offer. i believe the whole thing is made of polartec power stretch, which i think is better than the comparable north face aurora fleece that's partially polartec. more than twice expensive than the latter but i thought i was worth it. very form-fitting.
