Possibly my favourite piece of clothing ever purchased.                                        
 
I wear it in work and down the pub as a casual garment. However I also use for nearly every aspect of climbing and mountaineering that I do. In the summer I use it as a mid layer for use on the crags on slightly colder days. The thumb loops and balaclava style hood are very useful if I climb a route and find it a little chilly whilst waiting at the top as the hood is stretchy enough to fit over my helmet.
 
In the winter it then becomes my sick baselayer! The Capilene 4 hem makes it comfortable to wear with a harness or rucksack waist belt as it doesn’t rub. The fabric wicks like nothing else I have come across and the hood fits perfectly as a balaclava underneath my helmet. The thumb loops also negate the need for wrist gaiters.

All in all, this top c ould not be improved in anyway. It is perfect!
