Yay, it fit!
For those of you who have tried this shirt in the past but found the upper arms too tight, I have fabulous news: as of fall 2015, the arm issue is resolved. Or so it seems for me. I tried this shirt over a year ago but found it to be uncomfortably snug on my upper arms and shoulder. I returned it. Then the violet color was released, and I decided to give it another try. Bought the same size, and I'm pretty sure my upper body is about the same. The shirt fits perfectly. I'd be curious to know if others have had the same experience.
- Color, fit, pattern, fabric feel and thickness
I ordered this in a small, and it is true to size, although the sleeves are a bit snug. I like it very much, and the 'pop' color is very orange, like orange soda. Not as yellow as pictured online, which is good!
The flyte long sleeve is my favorite Oiselle piece. The fabric is warm, but light enough to transition into spring. I have also noticed that the sleeves fit snugly, so while I can wear a Oiselle medium in looser styles, I have sized up to a large here. (5'5", 145 pounds) This also allows me to disguise my baby "pooch". The bird pattern is absolutely beautiful, as is the heathering of the fabric. You will not regret having a few of these in your closet!
Love, love, love this top! I have the bright pink one in large as I'm 5'9" and the sleeves are nice and long and also long enough in the torso. So perfect and cute! I'll be ordering the fresh green color as well. Wish it was still available in the Indigo...would be perfect to wear underneath t-shirts to Seahawks games here in Seattle's cold weather. Would love it if Oiselle restocked the colors or came out with new ones as well!

The shirt that started it all...
I love the design and fit of this shirt! I have it pink and gray already. The design is very appealing to me and put me in touch with an Oiselle runner who motivated me to join the flock!
I am 5'6 115 and have a pink small. Fits perfect. I wore this for my full fall season last year and was hoping to order all the other colors.
Great shirt, Awesome customer service
I ordered the flyte long sleeve in indigo this summer. I love the fit and feel of this shirt! There was a mix-up in the shipping and Oiselle promptly took care of the situation. It was a rare treat to have a business respond to my problem so quickly and courteously.
Love the style but arms are too tight
I absolutely love the birds and the material of this shirt, but because I am a bit more muscular in the arms, the arms are tight and a bit constricting. I'm 5'7 and 130 pounds and the medium was big everywhere else except for the upper arms. I hope that Oiselle fixes this because then I would buy one in every color!
love this top as a running layer and it fits great
I am in love with this shirt. Approx. 5'7 and 140 lbs and the medium fits great. Fitted but not restricting. The indigo is gorgeous and the style is sweet. Running in this top feels like flying!
tight sleeves but beautiful fabric
I agree with the other reviewers that the sleeves/armpits/shoulders are too tight. I ordered a small, my usual size in all athletic clothes. The rest of the shirt fit fine--even a bit loose. The fabric is soft and the bird pattern is pretty. Wish the sleeves fit better.
Best birthday present! My best friend ordered this for me. My first thought when I saw this shirt in indigo is that it is beautiful. LOVE the birds. It also felt great. Once I put it on I loved the way it looked and felt, except for the arms... They weren't uncomfortable, but more fitted than I am used to. Then I ran a 10k in this shirt and it is now my favorite shirt. I am 5'7 and 135 pounds and I got the medium. Now since its getting hot, I just need to get the flyte tank!
I got the pink one in December and loved it so much that I bought the indigo. They are my favorite long-sleeve tees. They fit well--the fabric has a great stretch to it so it's very flattering, and the sleeves are the perfect length. I've worn it on windy days, transition days, and today even in a hail storm. If it's warm, the sleeves will actually stay up (not the case with many of my long-sleeves), and it's cold, it keeps me warm. These are worth every penny. I'm 5'6" and 130 (36B) and the medium fits well. And the birds--how I love the birds!

I love this top!
I have to say that I primarily bought this top in the Indigo color because it was cute. I may look like a hot mess in the office but I insist on being stylish when I run! This top was amazing! The material was super soft and not only was it cute but extremely functional as well. I never overheated (which I tend to do in long sleeved tops), the top never felt heavy and it wicked sweat wonderfully. Two thumbs up! I hope this shirt comes in more colors in the spring so I can buy ALL THE COLORS!
I'd get one in ever color, if...
...there was a little more give in the arms holes. The fit is nice through the body, but I find the arms too constricting. I hope you revamp this top in the future!!
I am and have been a swimmer for 2 1/2 decades. I have broad shoulders and built arms - nothing huge - but too huge for a small in this shirt. Luckily I bought a medium and found it to be snug, but fine if I am wearing it by itself or with a tank underneath. I am thinking I might exchange the small for a large so I can wear other shirts underneath. I am 5'8" and 145 lbs.
The length is great (covers to mid-hip) and the sleeves & thumbholes rock :) A little looser around the waist than I expected from the photos but still flattering.
Like the material but NOT seamless
Sleeves are too long and there is a seam that does not run correctly on the sleeve. It binds and pulls the sleeve tight under the armpit. Too constricting, not at all comfortable. For the price of this shirt I was very disappointed in the design of where the seam is on sleeves.
Wonderful long sleeve. The arms are actually long enough and I love the thumbholes and general fit. Doesn't hold smell!

This is a comfortable and warm running shirt. And super cute. The sleeves are long enough and the thumbholes are comfortable. I love this shirt!
please get more in stock!
I really love how this shirt looks and cannot wait to buy one! Please get more in stock soon!
I am 5'3" 121 lbs . I ordered a small and I find it very tight in the arms, shoulders and arm pits, fits nice and loose in the abd. Im trying really hard to like this top but whenever I put it on I am bothered by how tight it is in my shoulder. I am not the yoga or running body type but I do crossfit and Im wondering if my arms are just not made for this shirt :( That all being said customer service went above and beyond when I needed assistance with my order.
good shirt - NOT seamless
Length is great and sleeves are long enough. There isn't any side seams but the rest of the garment has the normal seams you would expect.
Best shirt ever.
