I have 3 baselayer Kenyon polartec bottoms but this is a different fabric that has a more fuzzy outer texture. The fit, weight and quality were nice but I was looking for the other fabric that has one smooth side and one fleece side. Just a personal preference...nothing wrong with this garment...just not the fabric I was looking for.

Looks nice enough to be seen but works well under outer layers too. The color is a subtle and rich shade, unlike a lot of fleece fabrics which tend to have
either muddy or harsh colors. I like that the cuffs are snug but elastic and not fleecy - aids in pushing them up when necessary.
Fit is very good- long enough to keep the back warm, but not long to hang out of outer layers.

Bought this top in size Medium (I am typically a small or x-small) so it would be a bit looser and I could wear it as a regular shirt. Bought in both black and purple. The purple one is a bit longer & narrower than the black (better fit for me), but both are great! Warm enough that I don't need another sweater over top with the heat at 60 degrees. They are actually too warm to wear to bed without waking up too hot. Very glad I purchased them - it's nice to be warm & comfortable during the long, cold winter.
I'm over 5'9 and weigh 115, so I'm thin and have small bones and am flat-chested. The small is a perfect fit--not snug, not loose. Not restraining in anyway. It pretty much goes according to the sizing guidelines. I was going to try a medium, but decided to trust the sizing guidelines and got the small, which really is a perfect fit. This top is very soft and warm. I love it--bought a bunch of them.

It does run true to size. There is room in body and plenty in the shoulders. The only place it could be larger is in the length of the sleeves. I have long arms and they are a little short for me.

I feel it runs true to size. Since the shirt is a base layer, your normal size will fit close-to-the-body as it should so that another layer can fit over it easily. If you want the shirt to fit loosely then I'd suggest you order up a size. I bought three for me in a large (instead of medium) as I wanted them to fit loosely as pajama tops. I bought three for my Mom in her true size and these are against the skin on her. Even when fitting against the body, they are not tight as the fleece has some give to it. We both love these tops.
