Used these for several runs in breezy 50-60 F weather. It kept me warm while not heating me up, and I didn't feel the wind. The material is incredibly soft and I was surprised at how it still smelled fresh after a 1h run and doing some stuff around the house before taking it off. The neck is very comfortable - this is the best half-zip ever.

I like to unzip and pull my arms through the neck and tie around my waist versu taking the pullover all the way off which causes my hat and earbuds/headphones to get messed up (pony tail too). I was let down and have already retired the pullover as I ripped the zipper trying to take it off

          I love this product. I bought it to run in cold weather as an underlayer for a half marathon in Patagonia, Chile. Right now I wear it as a shirt alone in 50 degree temps. It Works great. Not too hot! The longer length is nice and at 5'8" the sleeve length is perfect for me. I love the feel of the fabric and the back zipper pocket it a nice feature. Semi form fitted so it's not too snug. Loved it so much, I just ordered another one.

                This is light weight, but PERFECT for running on 50-60 degree early mornings, when its still dark and cool! I bought the purple and can't wait to get more! This is nice and long too, and doesn't ride up when you run.

                  Comments about Essential LS 1/2 Zip II:

                  This top is the perfect weight for many weather conditions. It keeps me warmer than I thought it would in the wind and rain but I don't seem to overheat at all in the overcast 50's either. I really love how it looks too. Definitely essential piece of my running wardrobe. The only adjustmemt I would make is the reflective strip at the wrists makes it tough to shove my sleeves up quickly. I have to be careful since the seam seems tight. Otherwise no complaints!

                    I love this! I can wear it over just a sports bra or a shortsleeve shirt. It's very soft and comfortable. It's also nice and long, so it doesn't ride up. I'll likely order another color. I ordered the teal/mint green, and the colors are beautiful!

                      Love this. The color is like a heathered textured grey. Looks great when you're running or just for everyday with yoga pants. Fits well and isn't too heavy or light. I wear over a tank top or on cold days over a light weight long sleeve. Perfect for pre workout warmup layer.

                        Like a cake I am all about the layers and its doesn't get much better than this pull-over. I wear this all the time and am a huge fan of the thumb loops--perfect for a chilly day where you know you want to start out with your hands covered but don't want to bother with gloves once your hands warm up

                          I am tall..... 5'11" to be exact. It is hard to find a shirt for me that is long enough in the sleeves and in the torso so this shirt is great! I'll buy every color:)
