affordable thermal goodness

Verified Buyer Reviewed by LibbyGH from Santa Cruz Mountains CA on Saturday, December 27, 2014
Smooth on the outside, fleecy on the inside, with sleeves long enough for my long arms, such that the thumbholes are in the right place (i.e., over my thumbs and hands, not on my wrists like so many other brands). For those things I am grateful. In spite of the fact that I've mostly switched to wool base layers, this poly-fleece top is a keeper. Fit seems true; I am 5'6" 125 lb and the Small is a good fit on me. Since this is technically a base layer, it is made to be worn without another shirt underneath--and the trim fit reflects this--but you could probably sneak a thin Merino layer underneath anyway. I gave 4 instead of 5 stars for a completely subjective reason: the color choices are either drab or brash, with not much in between. Also, if it's anything like my other Avalanche Wear thermal tops, the exterior will pill up pretty quickly.
