Pros: Keeps me very warm, I can run in this top as a single layer in 30 degree temps. Soooo comfortable. Awesome fit! I had read earlier reviews regarding how they run on the smaller size, so I ordered a medium (I always wear a small - 5'5, 120lbs) and it was a perfect fit. Cons: Not many! It has to be hand washed with detergent for wool clothing. I don't necessarily like that. Also, there's an inside flap on the collar that kinda sticks up - looks wrong, so I just tacked it down with a needle and thread, but something to improve on. Overall, was happy with this top and ordered 2! I would order this again. I can't comment on long lasting...since I've only had it for a short time - I do hope it holds up!

Wooly Helly Hansen
This merino wool Helly Hansen is the perfect base or mid-layer for winter, spring, and fall activities. It is more lightweight than a fleece, but provides comparable warmth. The material is not itchy at all, and I have very sensitive skin. I wanted to use this as a mid-layer, with a long sleeve shirt underneath. I am 5' 8'' and 118# and usually take a size small or medium. In this shirt I purchased a large and the fit is perfect. I got the Ebony color, which is a charcoal gray with a subtle flower design. Love it!

I absolutely love this top! I have 3 of them. The purple is such a beautiful color that I wear it as a top instead of baselayer. I like the quality, warmth and comfort in addition to style. I would buy it in all the colors HH offers if I didn't have way too many tops.

REALLY runs small!
I usually wear size small, so I hoped that the Medium in this top would work, given the reviews stating that it runs small. Unfortunately it runs extremely small, so it's going back. I'm giving it good ratings, though I never actually wore it or tested it out. The fabric feels almost like it could be polyester, though it's actually wool. It's a beautiful lightweight baselayer that could work easily as a top alone.

Really nice looking and warm
It runs small and is a very fitted style, but I knew that from a previous Helly Hansen purchase, so I ordered a size up. The zipper style is my favorite---very versatile. Can't wait to wear it hiking and camping this fall and winter!
