A good investment for winter workouts

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I've enjoyed this for a couple of cold seasons now and am so glad I have it. The diagonal zip takes some getting used to, and sometimes due to the positioning of the thumbholes the arms can feel twisted, but once you get the hang of it it's great for cold runs. I've also found it good as a base layer under heavier gear for long walks/sightseeing in colder weather.

Okay but not the best for me

    I got the orange one, and I love the color. Fabric is soft, as usual, and great quality. One thing I didn't like is that the top is constructed from two different kinds of fabric - the regular weave of Smartwool that we all know and love, and a ribbed wool for some of the panels (see the two-tone for an idea). It gave my shirt a kind of sloppy look, as the ribbed fabric has more stretch than the rest. Also, the side neck zipper is fine if I keep it zipped all the way up, but it's too awkward to adjust easily, and sticks at the neck seam. I bought it on sale, and will keep it in my office as a spare; but I will stick to the crew-neck front zipper version in the future.

    Yes, found that the zipper does stick at the neck. I had picked the black. The seams really irritate my skin (I'm Asian), so I always wear my shirt inside out.[ I LIKE the look of the taped neck contrast, anyhow.] I'm 5' 3 1/2" and 128 "(wi street clothes). I've worn the zipper all the way zipped, half way unzipped (when it stuck at the neck and I didn't have want to putz with it) and all the way unzipped (which hits just below my collar bone). My SmartWool didn't seemed to take on a sloppy look, but then again, [Don't get yeched?..] I was "zipped in for the winter" I slept with it on and then worn it as my shirt during the day, putting on a jacket as needed. So I wasn't taking it on and off any at all, until I finally washed it and me.

    I liked it but...

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I liked this a lot but my problem was the sleeve length. Without using the thumbholes it looked fine but when using them the sleeves are too short and pulls the armpits out. I really liked the color and it kept me nice and comfortable.

    SmartWool Lightweight Asymmetrical Top

      This was one of my favorite tops this past winter. The wool is super soft and comfortable. The details (especially the flattering color blocking and thumb loops) guaranteed I got compliments every time I wore this, both casually and while snowboarding. I find SmartWool's products run true to size (I am typically a medium and the medium in this fits great).

      Love it for skiing

        I love the side zip for xc or downhill skiing. I generally dislike the feeling of the front zippers against my throat, just still need the ability to open and close the zip as the weather changes. It does look a little weird open, but since I'm usually in snow pants or work out gear I'm not as concerned with appearance. The thumb holes keep snow from getting in under you gloves.

        The wool is super soft against the skin and will still keep you warm when you stop after working up a sweat on a tough section of trail.
