Bought for the boyfriend. He says:
This is a really nice slim fitting base layer. Feels very comfortable. Uses for a variety of activities. Uses as a bay layer or sometimes the only layer. Thought it was expensive to purchase, but realise it is a great piece and well worth every penny! Has gotten SO much use out of this within one year, looks like the item has been hardly worn. It is hard wearing. It's great at dealing with the sweat and keeping him cool/warm when needed. He would be willing to purchase more.
Take care of the specific washing instructions- this helps to prolong the life of the product too!
I wear mine for every race!
I've been wearing one of these The North Face tops for a few years (the old model) & was hoping on buying this one that they hadn’t changed it much. I needn’t have worried, this now one is just as good as the old ones were.
The first one I bought was a few years ago and I still have the top now. It's my go-to top for ultra running. The reason I love it so much is it's very light weight & very warm. It's also very good at regulating your temperature. Yes I know lots of manufacturers claim that the clothes they make can regulate you body temp & wick away sweat but this one actually can! I don't like spending money unnecessarily & thought these The North Face tops were a bit pricey but I now have 5 of the things and would buy more if these wear out.
My last ultra race in The North Face top was The Ridgeway Ultra 85 miles and I wore this top throughout the race. Not as a base layer but as an only layer! I didn’t even wear a coat at night. I'm not easily impressed by clothing or any kit for that matter but this top is fantastic & I now wear it all the time on every race I do.
