Marmot Lightweight Crew LS
Price Paid: retail $20
I wore this shirt on two hikes. I wore it under a wicking t shirt and a fleece vest and fleece light shirt. The temperatures ranged from the 30-50 range. I felt comfortable like it was part of my skin.
As my hike increased in terrain I started to remove layers and the only thing protecting my arms were the long sleeve's of this shirt. I never felt hot or cold. It kept me at the right tempature range and any perspiration that was built up was being wicked away.
I found this is the baselayer for me in many activities.
Fabric: I hardly noticed it was there and it fit like a second skin...who would have thought...coconuts..
Price Paid: $22
This shirt is FREKIN AMAZING!!!
I bought it on REI outlet online simply because I needed a shirt fast, it was on sale and I liked the color (I got the purple one…I don’t get into the browns, greens and blacks you usually find). I bought it for hiking, backpacking and simply wearing around my college campus this winter. The shirt is simply amazing!
It fits perfectly, snug enough to do its job but lose enough to that it’s not restricting! I am cold natured (anemic actually), and this shirt, even though it’s lightweight, kept me warmer than any sweater I have ever owned. Yet, at the same time, when I was inside buildings that had their heaters blasting I wasn’t to hot only comfortable! The moisture wicking is amazing; I didn’t have that ‘wet’ feeling all day even when I got slightly toasty.
The only problem I had was when it came to getting ready for bed…I didn’t want to take it off! Needless to say, I am very satisfied as I write this I am online buying the same shirt only in midweight (gotta’ have one of each!).
