Warm, comfortable and well priced
on 8 October 2013
Ordered a 12; I'm 5'9" and a standard UK 12 in most clothing. The fit is good, true to size, not too clingy but still a flattering fitted style. Nice length, especially at the back where you can get that chilly inch of bare flesh where some tops don't quite cover enough. Unlike most tops with thumb holes the arms are actually long enough for me to be able to use them comfortably. The high viz piping is a nice touch.
I bought this mainly for winter running on cold nights, and British Military Fitness sessions. It's very warm, with a super-soft lining, but also breathable with great wicking and a high collar/deep neck zip which allows good temperature regulation. I wish I'd had this last year for snowboarding, as it would probably have been a perfect baselayer.
If I'm going to be picky I'd prefer the side pocket to be at the back centre as I hate anything being off balance when I run, but it's a minor niggle. This would be a good running top at full price, and at half price it's an absolute steal.
