Fantastic cozy go-to staple

This is a fantastic staple in my cold weather arsenal and just ordered two more on STP special. I started with Avalanche's Mogul tights and pants and then looked at the top from the same group. Thanks to others' reviews I got the M and it fits well - still fitted, very athletic cut, super soft and oh so light. After poking around internet and even visiting Avalanche's own website I found STP's special deal and reasonable shipping trumps all others have to offer. My blue and yellow stitching top got tons of complements and (I admit it) found myself reaching for it daily since I received it. A white and the grape purple will round out my collection nicely until I can buy more. If you cross country ski, run, whatever and don't want to feel trapped or moist during high aerobic workout this is the top for you. I'm 5'10", normally wear a 6-8 (S) in tops, long-ish arms and in some tops find thumb holes too restricting if the arms aren't long enough. This is one without issues. It hugs and if you want to loser fit like Columbia, etc - go up even more. I will absolutely buy a L or an Xl if price is low enough. I washed it in Woolite on a gentle cycle with a garment bag to avoid any possible pilling problems (as others reported) because the surface coating is smooth. No issues at all. My pants/tights were well protected this way as well). Since learning more about this US-based brand I'll be keeping an eye out for more - their clothes (including jackets) are nicely curved to show a flattering fit. It's nice to see athletic clothes which also look flattering on.
