i am 140lb, 5'11'' and got a medium to make sure the sleeves would be long enough but they are still too short by quite a bit, and the pattern looks unflattering on the bust. also fabric is very comfy and warm but the color of the top does not match the pants that look like they should match.

I loved the first one of these I purchased thorough STP, that I bought several more.
I use them as a base layer for Winter running and snowshoeing in MN. They keep me warm and surprisingly dry.
Sizing is true to size and I love the long length of the arms.
I purchased several pairs of the matching bottoms also.

I continue to be a fan of Craft with this top. Wore it on a 10.5M hilly road run on a low 30s, "feels like high teens" morning recently. Started with a shell over it but once out of the wind, took the shell off and wore this top alone. It kept me pretty warm - except when the wind blew again - and pretty dry. Unlike the Active Base Layer Top, which I also love but is designed to be very form-fitting, this top actually has a bit of room and stretch. I'm a medium (lean, small chested, but broad shouldered) in "true size" and that's what I ordered for this shirt. Perfect. The ergonomic structure of the shirt is functional and looks spiffy, too (perhaps garnering respect from car drivers for a "serious" athlete running on the roads). Only drawback is the lightish color which gets greyer and more dingy-white with age.

This is an extremely comfortable and lightweight base layer. I do wish it was a pinch longer, because i wear it to bike ride. However, i definitely stay warm but dont over heat in temps from the low teens to the mid 30's in this, with a gore wind stopper jacket over it. I'm not sure how it would hold up below zero, but i feel like it would be decent in colder temps. However, I'll have to wait until next winter to find that out for sure.

I am sold, on this base layer top. It moves with you, doesn't bind or pull. It's so warm, shockingly warm, for being so light-weight. It doesn't retain odors, at all...which is a huge plus, in my book.

I needed something for use when wearing wool is just too warm-yes, wool ventilates, but if there are big temperature swings, wool doesn't breath & wick quickly enough; this item seems made to do the job. I like the look on, fit seems a little roomy, but not much. I noticed that the material does snag easily.
