HOMERUN HALF ZIP
Half zips aren't new. But our take on this runner classic is clearly a step beyond average baselayers. Intended to be semi-fitted, for layering over other pieces, this staple can play the field, under outerwear, over underwear, and good looking everywhere.
- Lux™ fabric (polyester/spandex)
- asymmetrical half zip at chest
- 24" body length (size 4)
I really like this half zip! It's comfortable and surprisingly cool, I've been wearing it running recently even though it's not cold yet and I'm a nice temperature in it. I'm usually a solid 8 in Oiselle (5'7", 175 lbs, athletic build with boobs) but I ordered a 10, because it's all they had, and I'm glad I did. It's quite slim fitting so the 10 is still tight on me, but a comfortable tight. I usually prefer looser fitting clothes; if you do too, I'd order a size or two up!
Received this as a gift and love it! The lux fabric is lovely, as always, and the fit is really flattering. The thumb holes and big zipper pocket are great. My only (very minor) complaint is that when the neck is fully unzipped, the wider side bounces around a bit while running.
This is my go-to long sleeve top for running. It is soft and not too tight at all, I am very large busted (34E) and got the size large, I could have easily worn the medium as well. Normally I wear a medium, size 8 top. Love the back zipper as well, I can stash my gloves or other light things there. Not great for stashing a phone. Thanks Oiselle!
Absolutely love the style of this half-zip up. Purposefully off-center so it is aesthetically cool in a moto like style.On the down side, when I wore it in a light California rain, the colors from the black top bled out onto my light pink oiselle verrazano sports bra :___(my pink bra has been ruined by black/blue stains
This is a lovely top, and SO soft! I would definitely recommend ordering a size up though if you like it a little looser. It does fit perfectly over a tank for me though. I know I'll get lots of use out of this this winter!
I love this top, the back pocket is awesome and big enough to fit a spare bike tube! It runs a little big which is perfect for wearing over a tank or short sleeve for a warm up as well. The luxe fabric is great, but I find that it retains some post-run funk, even after washing. Is there a way the fabric could be modified to add some anti-stink properties?? that would be amazing!
I initially bought this for the amazing lux fabric. The fit turned out to be perfect. I bought in my usual oiselle size for tops (4), for reference I'm 5'6" and weight ~ 130. The large pocket in the back is great for anything you may need to carry (or if you want to throw your gloves in after warming up on a run). One of my favorite oiselle items!! It's warm but not too hot and very easy to throw on when I want an extra layer!
Thank you Oiselle, I've wanted a half zip from you for so long and this one is perfect. Lux is such a beautiful fabric and this piece provides that extra coverage for your neck while allowing for ventilation mid workout by undoing the zipper. For those of you who need to carry gels, keys, tissues or whatever the back pocket has got you covered! As far as sizing if you have the Lux Raglan LS I suggest the same size. I'm 5'5'' , 34A and size 2 fits snug, size 4 is ideal for colder weather layering on top of other pieces.
