I received the Thermal Flyer in Maraschino in a size M (30" waist, bust 35"). The color is a bright, slightly pinkish red, which I like. I washed it on cold and let it air dry. It dried quickly and held it's shape very well. It is soft against the skin,and has a very nice fit - fitted, but not snug. I don't care for real snug, just not my preference. I wore this snowshoeing yesterday and worked up a good sweat, but alas, no odor. I like that because I tend to sweat so easily. Merino wool has a lot of appeal to me, and I've had good luck with Patagonia products and their durability. I look forward to having this top to incorporate into my wardrobe.
