A rare find.
Finding a baselayer you'll reach for as often as the Mountain Equipment Women's Eclipse Hooded Zip T-Shirt is rare, so don't miss out on it while it's here, or you could wait years to find another like it. Soft Polartec Power Dry 200 fleece holds a layer of breathable, lofted insulation against your skin to keep you warm but not overheated in the cold. Mountain Equipment cuts the Elipse in a slim, tailored fit, which allows you to sneak a slim baselayer under the top, but not much else. Wear it on its own for cold-weather runs, or as a midlayer when you're skiing or climbing in snowy, icy conditions. An asymmetrical zipper allows you to add airflow when you need it, and the top's longer length ensures it won't ride up when tucked into ski pants or pulled over running tights. Thumbholes keep you cozy when you're done for the day, and a bluesign-approved Polygiene treatment equips the Eclipse to resist odors without harming the environment you play in.

- Q & A
Not what I was expecting.
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: 10 (small)
When I ordered this item, I didn't expect it to be so thin. I really wanted to like it.
In addition to the fabric being much thinner than expected (I had heard this compared to the Patagonia R1, though I'd venture to say it was about half as thick). As a tall person, the fit length-wise was actually pretty good, however, it just wasn't what I was looking for.
Additionally, I found the side zip on the front to be super flappy and annoying when not zipped up all the way.
