This is my new favourite shirt... I think I'm wearing it too much. At first I was skeptical, as I was looking for a more conventional fleece for multi-purpose wear. But I'm glad I took a chance on this. I bike with it, I hike with it, I camp with it, and I even wear it casually, or while walking the dog. It has saved me/kept me dry and warm in a freak downpour; it's kept me cool on a long bike ride. It's incredibly versatile, just as comfy and more useful than a fleece, and it looks brand new even after a couple months or near daily use in some aggressive situations.
