FLYOUT WOOL LONG SLEEVE
The buzz on this fabric is high. It's been a much anticipated release at The Nest, as staffers touch, feel, and wear test. Known as the "Swiss Army knife" of technical knits, Flyout Wool is truly one of the most versatile fabrics we've offered. Its secret sauce is its construction AND Merino Wool blend. It wicks moisture just as wonderfully as our regular Flyout. But with 30% Merino Wool, it's also warmer, so you can either stay cool or warm up, depending on your climate. This long sleeve silhouette is a classic crew, with slight shaping, and extra long cuffs that include our Watch Window, so you can instantly view your running watch without tugging and pulling at sleeves and cuffs.
- watch window on both sleeves
- 24.5" front body length (size 4)
- 25.5" rear body length (size 4)
I love the Wazzie Wool long sleeve so much more. Returning this one and getting another one of those. The watch window is way better since they moved it a bit, but I like the fit of the Wazzie Wool a lot better. The Flyout seems a bit small... the tank fits perfect, but this is a bit tighter across the chest and at my waist than a lot of other tops of the same size from Oiselle. Great material though!!
Just received my turquoise shirt in the mail. I have freakishly long arms and their length is perfect for me. I wore it around the house with my Garmin showing. :) I am 5'8" and ordered a medium. I could've gone with the small, but I do like to layer up, so it is a great fit. 40s in the morning-a great day for a test drive!
I rarely write reviews mostly because I'm lazy about it & also because not many items blow my socks off. This top is everything and it's no wonder it's totally sold out. I'm a physician and typically wear a long sleeve run shirt day to day with scrubs. I wore this top to see patients, for a sunny 8 mile run that I thought I'd be sweating & hot in, then to see more patients, then a strength session. I fully planned on changing tops after my run but...never did because this thing wicked so well and I stayed comfortable temperature wise all day long (30 F outside today & 75 F in my office). It's flattering and body skimming without being clingy and fits me true to size (I'm a 2 or XS in all things Oiselle). Thanks for this gem, Oiselle and I hope it gets restocked!
I want to wear this top on every single cool weather run. I've been comfortable in this top (alone) from the 20s to the 40s. I run warm and every shirt of mine is pretty sweat soaked by the end of a 60-90 minute run, even in the winter. This top breathes well so that it takes longer for me to start getting soaked. When I do eventually get sweaty spots, I don't feel clammy and cold. An added plus: the fit is very flattering. It is fitted but not clingy through the midsection.
I wore this for a half marathon in Denver this past weekend. Temps were in the low 40's with very strong (very cold!) winds throughout the course. It was perfect! I run hot so I didn't need any other layers, yet I feel like I would have still been comfortable within a wider temperature range. It keeps you warm, but breathes well enough that you don't get too warm (which is the case for me with a lot of cool weather gear). The blue is a beautiful cheery color, but I wish there were more colors to choose from (I would definitely buy more if so!). Love the watch window too. Got a medium because I like a little room. Sleeves are a bit tight, but only a bit (for reference - I'm 5'2",130 lbs)
I agree with all the positive reviews here. This is a high quality, well-fitting, functional top. I just want to mention, though, that the holes for watches (plural, because there are holes on each sleeve) are just plain strange. I could maybe see one (although, even as a competitive age-group runner, I am no slave to my watch, and hardly use it during training). Or just put your watch on the outside of your sleeve; that's what I do in winter. At the very least, you've got cold air creeping onto your arms in two places; at worst, the holes look like gashes or a mistake because they're so big and noticeable.
This is a gorgeous, high quality, versatile, awesome top. Like another reviewer mentioned, though, what's up with the super skinny sleeves? My upper (swimmer) arms are actually ok but I can hardly get the shirt over my lower arms (also lean but muscular). I had a very early Flyout long sleeve with the same challenge, and had to give away a Flyout jacket to a friend because of the same issue. OK, it's hard but not impossible to get the shirt on, but there's no rolling up these sleeves. Oiselle, I love you so much but who are your fit models? I thought they were real women.
It's no surprise that this shirt sold out super quickly. It is perfection! I was never too hot, never too cold. And it wicked sweat. The thumb loops / hand warmers are amazing and the watch holes were much needed. I grabbed a size 10 -- usually a S/M -- and it is perfect. I wish there were more left b/c i would get another one!
