I have only worn this base layer once for riding but I was very impressed with it. It was ~35 deg F outside and I only had this base layer and my jacket for warmth and I was a little chilly but positively toasty compared to my normal base layer of a fleece jacket. The top of the arms and chest are wind proof. However, I did have a bit of a draft on the underside of the arms.
The shirt fits pretty well. I ordered a medium (I am 5'8", ~150lbs, and have a short torso). My only complaint is that the shirt overall is fairly loose, but the arms are not quit long enough.
I do like it enough that I am planning on picking up the matching bottoms and the both the men's top and bottom for my husband.
The fit on this is strange. It is too tight under the arms, too loose in the chest. It is too baggy to use as a base layer, but too tight to use a a mid layer. I imagine it would be perfect if you have skinny arms and a big chest, but for me it was uncomfortable.
Used it as a shirt with my leather jacket - it was all I needed for a ride in 60 degree weather. The fit is quite loose - I usually wear small but ordered medium - the small's sleeves would be too short - the medium's almost are. It kept me warm (I'm a very cold-natured female) and I'm glad I got it on sale.
It is a great product, but they charge more than double for a women's style!! Why?????? I also purchased a men's one (1 size smaller), and it does the same great job!! Save money and buy 2 for the price of 1, by buying men's style! They both conform tightly to your body, giving you a curvy shape, despite being a men's style.
