Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars
Fabric: Polartec Power Stretch
Fill: none
Price Paid: 79$

My favorite piece of clothing I own. The material feels great against the skin and is incredible warm.

I've warn this by itself on a crispy autumn day in the low 50's high 40's. Layered it under a soft shell for warmth down till the low 40's and going to see how warm I can get down to with it under my Mountain Hardware Nitrous jacket.

The front zip makes for pretty good ventilation and the thumb loops helps keep the sleeves from moving around to much. I also like how quickly it drys out and pulls moisture away from my body.

About the only thing I can find wrong with it is the stitching is a little on the fragile side. It's fairly easy to get the stitching caught and have it pull a thread but even with that this has become an valuable item in my clothing arsenal.

Will buy more when this one wears out.
