Most helpful critical review

i decided to try this top after my previous nike base layer, now 6 years old, is a bit tatty and started to rip.
I was dissapointed with the quality of the material. It is very thin, so thin you can see through it. It doesn't feel durable either, it feels like a tough tug on it when taking it off and off and it would easily rip.
my previous nike baselayer was a really tough durable material, that has survived several season playing rugby, numerous skiing trips, cycling, running basically its had a lo of use. It kept me warm on cold days, protected my body from scratches and wicked the sweat away. I'm not sure this will stand up to it. I used it when cycling recently and it didnt help to keep me warm.
I'm going to keep it as i'm sure it will come in handy when the weather warms up a bit - but i'm stll going to buy another nike baselayer - for 6 pound more it is the better purchase.
