I've been experimenting with what to wear when skiing and teaching. With quite a good collection of assorted thermals (patagonia Variable Weight being my favourite), attention has turned to the shirt layer.

Columbia this year have some very spiffy looking little fleece shirts with a zip-up neck. TJ Maxx have a handful of them at $16.99 so I got a few, plus a Jockey Sport which seemed identical.

So far, I'm very pleased and plan to revisit TJs and get the rest they had! They are less bulky than my usual poly/cotton turtleneck shirts, and for travelling they are also lighter, and compress better. They also look quite nice. They dry faster when you wash them, and essentially they continue the work started by the base thermal layer, of keeping your skin dry, and sending moisture out and away.
