Flyte Long Sleeved
I bought this shirt as a racing shirt, because I love the birds and the "fly" on the back. Perfectly represents my race-day state of mind! Only 3 starts because I don't love the fabric; it has very little give/stretch, so it feels a bit stiff when running. Also, the wrist portion of the fabric should have waaaaaay more stretch. I have to choose between having visual access to my running watch (and having cold hands the entire run) or having zero visual access (but warm hands). Peeling back the fabric takes monumental effort! If the fabric is going to have the same stiffness as the rest of the shirt, then add a slit above the wrist so you can take a peek at your watch. All of my other long-sleeved shirts (other brands) have stretchy-enough fabric to easily take a peek at the watch. Beautiful design, but missed the mark somewhat in functionality.
- Beautiful design, lovely color
- Stiff overall fabric, wrist fabric is very stiff/tight

I had been eyeing this top for a while, and I finally had to try it. I am so glad I did! I ordered it in the black color (which is really more grey). The fit is amazing - I am 5 foot 3, 125 pounds, athletic build, and I ordered the small. I love how it fits without being clingy. The material is also great. It breathes well, which I love - since I am definitely a sweaty runner. It's the perfect layer for "cool" weather, when you just need light coverage to keep warm. It didn't move around at all during my run, or stretch out, etc. Very happy with my purchase!

Love this shirt
I have found Oiselle long sleeve tops tight in the upper arms before, but the Flyte Long sleeve fits great (I am a cross country skier and a runner). I confess to ordering the snap colour, loving the shirt, and ordered it in plum and coast. For some reason the plum shirt, all were larges, was just a bit tighter in the arms and body, so I am going to send it back, but loving the other colours! Maybe I just got a funny one. I am 5' 10", 155 lbs, generally wear a large in tops and medium in bottoms.
- love the colours, fabric, design
- different colours fit differently, which was disappointing
looks great, feels great, works hard
The first time I wore this top was for a 32K run in cold pouring rain, not quite glove weather but those hands are gonna get chilly. This top flippin' rocked it! No weird rubbing, no ride up, no sagging when it got soaked, kept the hands warm (as best it could, it was March in Vancouver after all), and the snap colour laughed in the face of the dreary, grey sky. I'm 5'2" ~105 and the XS fit like a dream. Normally I run in old race shirts, but wearing something that is designed properly, well made and fits and looks fly puts extra pep in my step!
- great fit, cheerful colour, super well made, a cool weather go-to.
Comfortable and happy colors!
The evolution of this top in the arms for me, has made it near perfect. The upper arms have been loosened so the seam no longer digs into my arm pit and I don't have to shimmy the sleeves when I put it on. And all without losing any of the perfect fit on the body and length. I'm short so it's a little long, but I just push it up when I run and pull it down when done, so my buns are covered when I'm standing in line for my post run treat. Thank you, for the fit evolution!
- Colors, print, and now, the fit!
- The arms are just a bit long for me
I love this top. It is the perfect for cooler, but not freezing, weather. The fit is great, perfect length. I'm 5'6, 145lbs and the medium fits perfectly. I loved this shirt so much I own it in 4 colors.

I WANTED to love this shirt
I hate to give this shirt such a bad review because I love Oiselle, but I ran in it last night for the first time and had to constantly pull it down. I tried to let it ride up to see where it would land, but it basically made it's way into a mid-riff. I am even more disappointed because I ordered the Tripoli first but had to return it due to it being too big. The customer service representative suggested this shirt because it comes in an XS, but for some reason it still is a fit issue for me on the bottom part of the shirt. I am normally a size 0 in most clothes but wear the Oiselle shorts and capris in a 2 and can get away with those. I'm 5'2" and range 104-108 lbs. Sadly, I am hesitant to try any other Oiselle tops at this point though I know I am receiving a muscle shirt for Christmas. Cute design, just a fit issue for smaller women. :-(

Lovely, lovely, lovely
Wonderful long sleeve, best running one I have ever owned, so many lovely comments about it and the print. I bought the pink/red colour in the summer and I'll take it through winter too. Perfect fit and nice and long even on a tall bean like me!
- Comfort, warmth, fit, quality of fabric and detail
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 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!
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 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.
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.
