Flattering warmth

Reviewed by happy customer from Midwest on Wednesday, November 19, 2014
I love this shirt so much I bought 3 of them in black. It is warm, stylish, and washes well. Has a rather smooth grid on the outside and gridded fleece on the inside, which I didn't fully appreciate 'til I bought it. My husband likes it on me and calls it one of my "ninja" shirts because it makes me look sleek. I love the zip neck with guarded zipper.

It probably runs a bit short as I'm 4'11" and I actually think it looks best when I wear a longer t-shirt under it (tho' tucking in an undershirt would work well from a warmth perspective, too).

Others have commented that the arms are tight but my slender/muscular arms have more than enough extra room in both arms and the shirt as a whole. I weigh ~90 lbs and think I could still wear the shirt if I were 15 lbs heavier. Might not work for those who carry a lot of weight in their arms. I really like the long arms with thumb holes when I'm not using my hands for a task and don't mind pushing the sleeves up a bit when I'm not using the thumb holes. Another plus is that this base layer doesn't get nearly as stinky in the armpit area as some of my other sleek base tops -- maybe it's the fleece lining. Hope to buy again next year in different colors!
