Price Paid: $36.50
Have worn alone and as a great base or mid layer over the lightweight crew neck short sleeve shirt of the same type.
Very comfortable and I love the Turtle Neck Collar with the zip. Covers neck on the inside of jacket collar or zips open for some needed ventilation when sometimes worn alone or as the outside layer.
Not too heavy, not too light, just right.
The snug but not restrictive fit allows the fabric to stay close and attached (touching) my skin so as to work as it best can, which is very good at moving moisture away from the skin and not allowing drafts up inside the shirt.
Yes, I would recommend this and yes, I would buy again from REI.
Here's what other sites are saying:
Use the men's REI Midweight Polartec(R) Power Dry(R) Zip-T for hiking, skiing, snowshoeing or Nordic skiing and enjoy the warmth and comfort. Polartec Power Dry utilizes 2 different yarns on either side of the fabric to enhance comfort: interior yarn wicks moisture, and exterior yarn dries quickly. Combination of the 2 yarns helps keep you dry during highly aerobic activities because it moves moisture away from skin faster than single-component fabrics such as cotton. Fabric offers UPF rating of 30 to protect against harmful UV light. Center front zipper allows ventilation control. Flatseam construction is soft and non-chafing next to skin, and raglan seams are designed to work with pack straps at shoulders. Underarm and side gussets promote freedom of motion and reduce chafing under a hipbelt. Additional length helps garment stay tucked in, and smooth texture of outer surface makes it easy to slide on extra layers. The men's REI Midweight Polartec Power Dry Zip-T features a next-to-skin fit that hugs the body.
