Additional Information

Perfect cover for those "in-between" days between seasons, this high-performance top is also an effective layering style in colder weather, with a longer zipper for great ventilation and easy on/off. The super-soft "peached" finish makes this top very, very touchable.
In her "Top Fall Gear Picks for 2011", Coach Jenny Hadfield likens this tech top to the little black dress that every woman needs. "It’s lightweight, wicks moisture away from the skin, and is perfect for those 'in-between' weather days. Zip up on the cold days, and down when you get a little steamy."


  • Fit: Semi-fitted
  • 9" front zip with inner storm guard and zipper garage
  • Front/back 3M™ Scotchlite™ retroreflectivity for increased visibility
  • Zip pocket on left hip for gels, I.D., or other essentials
  • Articulated sleeve with thumbholes
  • Climate: 40 to 65 F
  • Fit: Semi-Fitted

    I was hesitant to order this top because I couldn't tell what color it really was from the pic online. In the photo, the color appeared light/pastel, but in the thumbnail color swatch, the yellow looked bright/bold. I called Brooks to find out; the CSR told me it was a light yellow, so I went ahead an purchased.

    When it arrived, I was disappointed. The yellow is light, but it's also a bit fluorescent--not really what I had in mind. The top was on sale, though, and the other colors I was interested in had sold out by the time I received mine. That being the case, I decided to keep it; I do think, given the combination of the reflective logo and the color, that it's pretty visible around dusk, which is a plus for me.

    As far as the fit/performance of the top goes, I was pleased, with one tiny exception. When I put my thumbs in the holes, there's a bit more pull on the sleeves than I would like. I thought about returning and sizing up, but the rest of the dimensions seem perfect for me (although I am on the short side). I've worn this top over another longsleeve, as well as over a tank, and I had no problems with chafing. The fabric is amazingly soft.

    I was looking for a good l/s option to wear for running in cooler weather. (I'm a runner, finishing up training for my third half-marathon.)

    As it turns out, I haven't tried it out because I'm not happy with the length. While the fabric, design and style are great, it's about 2-3 inches shorter than I'd like. I wanted something that would cover my hips and behind a little better, especially now that it's running tight weather. Even wearing a longer shirt under it just looks awkward--it hits about 1-2 inches below my belly button. So, I'm sad to say that I'll be returning this!

      I really like this shirt. It was comfortable over a shortsleeve t-shirt to run in 40 degree weather. It wish it was a little longer, but I have no real complaints.

        Absolutley loved the felling of this long sleeve quarter zip. I can wear another top underneath and it's very breathable. Definitely good to wear for long runs when its 30 degrees outside.
