Marmot Midweight Zip LS
Price Paid: $60
I was looking for a replacement for a lightweight fleece, which served as a warm base-layer and occasional outerwear. I loved the Midweight Zip's light weight, excellent loft and outerwear-worthy design. But after a weekend-long pack trip the collar had begun to noticeably pill, and without any known reason the shirt front got a run in the fabric.
If I was just using this piece as a technical base layer I would put up with the fragile fabric, but at $60 I was expecting something I could use as outerwear too.
It gets 5 stars for technical quality underwear and 2 stars for durability.
Price Paid: $25
I love this shirt. It is warm and light. In my opinion it is not only a great base layer but also good as a long sleeve shirt worn over an Under Armour tshirt. Breathable and I like the Cocona technology.
I got lucky and got mine 40% off at Sun and Ski due to seasonal clearance. It is a little bit less smooth of a material than others but still comfortable. Buy one.
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
The Marmot Men's Midweight Zip long sleeve shirt covers you in a shaped fit that's easy to layer without accumulating bulk, and the half neck zip dumps heat when the temps rise. The Midweight Zip's flat-locked seams put and end to chaffing while you carry a loaded pack and the slightly-stretchy Polartech Power Dry fabric offers a close fit while wicking moisture away from your core. Marmot treats the Midweight with Cocona Performance technology, meaning you'll come out of the winter season smelling as fresh as a spring rose. We do recommend washing the Midweight at least a few times, though.
