Rated 5 out of 5 by OSUfaninMichigan Perfect!
I got this to take to the south last winter for walking and riding my bike along the coast. It is perfect in every way. I have longer arms and the thumb holes were right where I needed them. The coverage is great for riding my bike. I am a medium person and the medium was right on target. This is a layer to wear alone, which I have done, or with a sweatshirt, corduroy shirt, or a fleece jacket. I don't get all the picky reviews; I found this shirt to be ideal. Thank you LLBean!

Rated 2 out of 5 by rxjancie Much too big
Returning - wanted to use for running, but women's small was MUCH too big to fit well for that as a base layer. I'm a 34C and shirt did not fit at all tightly either through the chest or the sleeves. Sleeves were somewhat long (which does matter because of the thumb hole), but I often have that problem because I'm only 5'3". Trying to decide whether to exchange for XS. I liked the colors.

Rated 2 out of 5 by GreatLksLvr Disappointing
Already had men's zippered Polartec Power Dry Base Layer in blue but the zipper bothered my neck/chest area. So ordered the women's crewneck one to see if it was more comfortable. 1. Neck opening is too large. Does not do good job keeping cold out. 2. Sleeves are awkward. No other way of putting it. The thumbholes hurt, because sleeves are too short. If that's all that was wrong, I could deal with that by not using them. 3. The darker color that goes on the underside of the sleeve was the real clincher for me. It ends halfway between the elbow and wrist. And it sticks out at that seam like a mountain top. That makes the shirt uncomfortable with the extra fabric, plus it looks ridiculous. On the men's top, the darker color goes all the way down the sleeve and ends in the wrist hem. The neck is drafty, the sleeves are uncomfortable and look silly--back it goes.

Rated 3 out of 5 by nmrider Neck hole small
The neck hole on this is oddly small -- and I have a small head! I wear a 6 7/8 hat size and I almost couldn't get the shirt on over my head.
Also, the two colors of blue which contrast so nicely in the photo don't contrast much -- the two shades are much closer to being the same blue. I don't really care, but others might.
The main reason I'm returning is the small neck hole -- I'm worried that repeated stretching would cause wear to the fabric and shorten its lifespan. Other than that, the fabric & fit is nice.

Rated 3 out of 5 by sothlice Unflattering; weird wrist stitching
The top is frumpy, and though I realize it's casual outerwear, the fit wasn't conducive to "activity." Like other reviewers have noted, the neck is oddly high & tight. My particular XS came with the sleeve hems sewn [what appeared to be] inside out: they were shoddily cut and stitched together crookedly. Maybe if I had purchased the shirt on clearance, I wouldn't have minded, but not at this price. Also, this top is NOT comparable to "other brands" power stretch fleece -- it is not soft. For my sizing, I am 5' 5" 112 lbs, and the XS was drapy. An overall 'eh' to this shirt.

This little Base Layer Crew is so warm and cozy!
When you put it on the first time, the texture of the material feels so luxurious and so very warm.
When I discovered the thumb openings, I walked outside to pick up the paper , fingers free but hands so very warm!!
I wore it under a hoodie that my daughter gave me and my sister loved the style and the look of the thumb openings...
She immediately asked where I found this warm ,stylish,cozy, and simple Crew!!
She wants it in white so I am waiting for LLBean to produce that color for her..
ME? I also use it for a P.J. top on these frigid nights!!
Bottom Line...when you wear this crew by itself or under any other garment, you stay so warm....
I do plan to order more...Thanks LLBean
THIS IS A WINNER!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by teachergtm nice & warm
This shirt is the second one my wife has. They are warm and comfortable without being heavy. Great for outdoor walks on a chilly morning or as an underlayer for a sweater.

Ordered an extra small in this. It looked like a medium on me. Nice material, not a very good fit.
