Excellent for Alpine skiing
Just got back from a week of skiing in Austria where I didn't feel the cold once. I wore this top for 6-8 hours at a time, for six days in a row and it was still fresh (honestly). It is comfy, not at all itchy, and not too hot on sun days since the neck can be unzipped. On colder days (a few degrees below zero), I wore this with a Roxy jacket, layered with a Patagonia capilene crew, and a neck warmer and was toasty the whole time. I feel like it will serve me well for years to come.
