I decided to buy the Transition Zip T based on the positive reviews I'd read online and in outdoor magazines. I haven't read any negative comments other than how easily it snags.

I've owned this shirt for over 3 years now and I don't leave home without it. I will say it's the greatest thing since sliced bread.

I only bring this shirt and a coat when I climb or any outdoor activities. Saves room in my pack for other stuff.

Excellent for climbing, skiing, backpacking, traveling and snowboarding in windswept and exposed landscapes, the Transition Featherweight Zip T is just as light and breathable as other lightweight base layers, but the WindStopper N2S Featherweight shell fabric has a windproof Gore WindStopper laminate to effectively neutralize cold air penetration. The articulated cut combined with the snug and stretchy Push Pull knit fabric along the cuffs, sides and hem help seal in body heat without the bunching and binding sometimes found in middle layers designed with a relaxed cut.
