I am thinking of buying this shirt to wear under a down jacket or shell or just by itself in milder weather. It is 7 oz only and polartec 100. Has anyone worn this shirt? Can I have some feedback please?
Looking for something 7 oz to 10 oz insulation .. is there any other options?
Patagonia R1 pullover, MH micro ozone zip T are some that come to mind.

Hi Sujoy.

If you haven't already, you should read the user review (albeit a short one) of the Micro Chill Zip T in the gear section:

There's also a review of the Patagonia R1 Flash Pullover:

You can see the reviews for all fleece tops here:

I've had one for about 3 years. Use it as a light weight pullover sweater on chilly days in town. On the trail I use it as my 2nd (one of two insulating layers).

Seems to add just enough warmth and no bulk.

I should add that I live in AZ and worst case cold for me are winter hikes at Grand Canyon or a day on the slopes. So either no so cold, or am generating a lot of heat on my own.

Fit is trim, no issues with durability. I consider it worth the $$. You can get 100 weight fleece at much lower prices, but I went with the Mountain Hardware piece, despite the price based...I have a good experience with an MH shell so had confidence this would last.

I've got a couple of these and they're great. Very light, soft, comfortable and warm (for the weight). Picked up one from Sierra Trading Post for $24 (after "stacking" a couple offers). It's a cosmetic "blem" - there's a seam that doesn't quite match the other by less than 1/8". Certainly not a deal breaker. The other is "perfect" and like most MHW stuff, both should hold up for a lot of use.
