Reviewing this top after about a dozen times using it. So far so good. I did not want the full zip version as I don't like that style. I have worn this garment from about 25 degrees down to around 0 degrees with varying base layers.
I think a base layer is a must with this top, I have not worn it without one.
It is more or less wind-proof which is good. I have also worn it during a pretty good snowfall and no moisture got in through the fabric.
The fit is semi-form fitting there is plenty of room underneath for a layer or two.
The thumb holes in the sleeves are a plus, as is the collar. The top is pretty light and performs well despite that.
I can't think of any cons right now, I'd recommend this for a cold weather runner or for hiking or cycling. The only minor gripe is only one pocket in the back, but it holds my LG G2 so I'm content.
