Pros: Hood, zipper pocket, thumb loops, breathable, wicks, pony tail hole in hood.
Cons: Runs a bit small. Order up!
I purchased two of these in fall 2009 when I was managing a store that carried them. This quickly became my favorite item of clothing! After heavy wear, two years later, they are showing very little signs of wearing out (one of them has a hole worn in the sleeve where the velcro from my iPod arm band rubbed, but no fault of the clothing-my bad!).
I have worn them running in the winter, hiking in the fall and spring, around town on cold days, cross country skiing, snow shoeing, and downhill skiing. A very good weight and have an accessory pocket on the lower side seam that zips and is big enough to carry my camera while hiking and fits my iPod and phone when I go running. It's really cute and stylish as well-I get compliments whenever I wear it out around town. Can't go wrong with this!!
I have short hair, but everyone I sold these to with longer hair loved the hole in the hood for a pony tail. The thumb loops are great, but don't get in the way when you're not using them, and the sleeves aren't too bulky - I can wear my Polar heart rate monitor watch over the sleeve without a problem. I only wish I had bought more while I still had my employee discount, but they are well worth the price.
