Helly Hanson Top
Very nice top. I bought one before that was a large but found it to be a little loose i'm 5"11 180 so I bought another one that is Med. fit me perfectly. Great in hot weather haven't tried it in the cold yet but hope it works just as well in layers. I'm buying another one soon and i can't wait to get more colors.

Great for sweaty people
I sweat buckets even at moderate effort - no big deal in the summer, huge problem in winter, especially for multi-day mountaineering. So I am always on the lookout for baselayers that will keep me as dry as possible. Helly Hansen is my new love. Both their thin baselayers and the warm winter ones (wool/LIFA hybrids) are, in my experience, better than anything else in this respect. I've done running and cross-country skiing in HH shirts and I've climbed mountains in winter with 50-60 pound packs. No, they do not keep me "dry", but "moist" is a huge improvement over "having steams of sweat running down my body". Their water-transport capacity is remarkable, which also contributes to how warm they feel in winter. They are supposed to be skin-tight, but they feel good on your skin. I am 6'2" and 165 lb, 32" waist. I normally wear L pants and XL shirts, but for HH baselayers I prefer L shirts and M pants. Surprisingly, they are long enough - must be the Norwegian heritage. HH is not cheap -look for good sales.

I bought this for my husband and he loves it! It is very comfortable and kept him very warm out on the ski hill. It is a great base layer. It fits true to size and he wants to order a few more!!

Helly Hansen Baselayer Is Superb
I just ordered a Helly Hansen Multi Graphic Long Sleeve Baselayer. Not only does it look sharp, it is exceedingly comfortable. It affords breathability and decent warmth for a light baselayer. Paired with a light jacket or soft shell it is very comfortable for late fall. I haven't yet used it for strenuous outdoor activities, but I'm sure it will perform as intended. I'm planning to order another just like it in the walnut style. Outside Magazine recommended it in one of last year's issues--and I can see why!

I enjoy this product very much. I only wear one other layer on top of this one besides my coat and I stay warm. It's very lightweight and you dont even realize you have it on .
