- perfect for hiking in the wind (Review by trish)
I am so looking forward to wearing this while backpacking. It has wind protection on the front and arms, but not on the back. Which is perfect for when it is windy and chilly, but I would still be sweating under my pack.

- Not suitable for xc skiing..... (Review by L.)
Comfort trim fit with apparent wind block on the front but the back was thin if not sheer ("Patagonia-like R1 grid fleece). I did not feel this would provide warmth, wind protection or rain \ snow protection.
Not sure what the designers were thinking.

- Go to for winter (Review by Ellie)
I LOVE this layer for winter. It breathes really well, yet also blocks the wind just enough so you don't have to put on another layer. I always wear a light crew shirt underneath it. So glad you keep thumb loops on this top because I just can't buy a top without them anymore since they really help keep my hands warm (and glad you aren't copying Patagonia's new thumb loop style which is so uncomfortable.) I use this a lot for nordic skiing but also for backcountry skiing on a cold day. I got it in large, (5'7", 150) and maybe it is a little big on me, but I like loose clothing....LOVE it.

- Say Whaaaat??? (Review by AlpineRodeo)
Wow! This is such a smart layer. It’s like a Transition hoody (think thin Patagonia R1 grid fleece) on the inside with a thin, stretchy, waterproof outer layer. I have gone jogging with this in the rain and stayed dry, both inside and out. It’s great for mountain activities like trail running, ski touring (though maybe not as your outer layer on descents in dense trees—not sure how well it would handle a sharp snag from a branch) and Nordic skiing when you only want to bring 1 layer. And the thumb loops are handy and come at a nice length. If you’re between sizes, size up on this one.
