Columbia Women's Windefend 1/2 Zip Shirt
Grueling speed sessions may help you develop the snap to out-kick a rival, but they also mean youre generating a pretty brisk breeze. Luckily, the ber-soft and incredibly flattering Columbia Sportswear Women's Windefend 1/2 Zip Shirt has a wind resistant front panel so the faster you go, the more it protects. Paired with a high-wicking knit fabrication, its comfortable enough to wear as a first layer - and with two deftly incorporated deep back pockets, this piece works as well for cycling as it does for running. Reflective detailing increases your visibility when youre commuting in traffic and the extra long front zipper allows you to quickly dump heat when you hit the big hill just before home. Whether youre running or pedaling, the long cuff with cozy thumbholes will provide an extra hit of comfort on a chilly day.

Great for running
The 2 features I like the best are the long arms w/thumb holes and the 3/4 zip. It was 34 degress today and I just wore this with a warm fleece and was very warm. I didn't bring gloves and pulled the long sleeves to cover my hands (love this!). The zip is great to cool off. The arms keep your arms very cool though.. I think the body of the pullover does a good job blocking wind because I could feel the wind through my arms but not my core. I'll have to wait for a lot warmer weather to wear this alone though.. I never buy Columbia wear, but I was impressed. The fit was true to size.
