W's model, but works for Men too

Great midlayer for men too!

I ordered these for my wife and daughter plus both another W's and a M's version for myself. The Men's was baggy, loose hood, no thumbloops. The W's version is a great active piece in my opinion. Fabric is warm, breathes well, and is quite stretchy. Thumbloops prevent a cold gap at the glove/sleeve interface; hood provides a similar advantage between jacket and helmet when skiing. It is not at all wind-resistant so it breathes well but requires a shell to hold the warmth. As a midlayer the pockets add bulk without adding value. The hem length is quite generous so it won't ride up- the W's Large is about 27" and fits me fine (I usually wear a M's Medium)

The main features, fabric, and weight are similar to the Patagonia R1 Hoody, but with a coupon it was 1/5 the price. Two thumbloops up!
