Nike Women's Element Half Zip Long Sleeve Shirt
If you just can't bring yourself to workout indoors on the treadmill, the Nike Element Half-Zip long sleeve shirt for women can help you escape outdoors. It features Nike's proven Dri-FIT fabric to help wick away perspiration, but unlike some performance shirts that tend to be a little thin for cool weather conditions, the blended nylon/spandex Dri-FIT is denser--in a mid-weight baselayer sort of way. Compared to other performance running shirts, Nike Women's Element Half Zip Long Sleeve Shirts tend to run long along the raglan sleeves, which is excellent for women who insist on full arm coverage while working out. The entire pullover has a flat-seam construction that prevents chafing. One of the nice touches--typical for most Nike performance shirts--is a reflective loop near the collar that helps keep headphone cords from bouncing around your shoulders or collar.
- Fabric: Dri-FIT 92% nylon/8% spandex jersey
- Mesh side panels: Dri-FIT 90% polyester/10% spandex mesh
- Half-zip with reflective strip
- Flat-seam construction to prevent chafing
- Reflective loop at center back near collar to keep headphone cords in place
- Reflective Swoosh logo on left chest

Decent and reliable
I ordered a medium because these kinds of performance shirts tend to shrink after multiple washes. It fits well and is great for layering or not. I wear it running in the winter and it's very comfortable. It was on sale when I purchased it. I'm not sure I would have paid full price but I'm happy with the quality and durability so far.

I purchased this top as a gift for my sister who is an avid runner. Her job takes her everywhere from LA to New York to Madison, WI on a weekly basis so weight and packability are definite factors in addition to moisture wicking. This top is great in all aspects as it can be used as a base layer in cold weather or as a light long-sleeve shirt in very mild conditions so no matter where she is she can put it to good use. The fabric is soft and surprisingly light, but not to the point of feeling too delicate to hold up to use. The top is not as heavy as I had assumed based on the description, but it can be compared it to Underarmour base layer type material in warmth. It is much warmer than a comparably weighted cotton t-shirt or base layer likely due to the breathability and moisture wicking of the fabric.

great tech top
I purchased this top in the heathered black. It is very soft, wicking, and flattering on. I'm a size 6 and got the small which fit perfectly - body-skimming but not tight anywhere including the arms and the sleeves were nice and long. I should note that I feel the heathered colors are softer to the touch and the solid colors have a bit of that "poly-feeling." I have two of the heathered version.

Love these tops. Have a couple of them now and they fit and look great! Color combinations are new as well. Will probably buy more of these if/when new colors come out.
