LOVE this shirt!

I've worn this shirt during two half-marathons. The weather during both of my races was NOT ideal race weather -- windy, raining, and temperatures in the upper forties (Fahrenheit). This shirt was the perfect shirt for race day! The zip pocket on the chest is nice for small items; however, this new version doesn't have the little pocket on the back of the shirt like the older version did; this isn't a deal-breaker for me but might be for others. The thumb-holes help keep your wrists warm. The 1/4 zip is perfect -- you can zip it up all the way to keep your neck warm, or you can unzip it all the way if you start to get a little too warm. The fabric recovers well from the little, safety-pin holes. Overall it has worn quite well. I can't say enough good things about this shirt.
I was very excited to see that The North Face still makes this shirt, and I'm about to purchase another.
I'm 5'7" and weight 125 lbs, and the small fits great.
