FIRECRACKER REFLECTIVE LONG SLEEVE
A safety sensation! The long sleeve that is both brilliant in design and protection. Made from our Plya Interlock fabric, we bring it back this year in new colors and prints. The slightly cropped design can be worn as is, or layered over tanks. There is both a Watch Window and thumb holes. A mock neck finishes the look, and brings even more of the reflective goodness to your upper body.
- Plya™ Interlock (polyester / spandex)
- wide + cropped silhouette for easy layering
- highly reflective print for low light visibility
- watch window on both sleeves
- 15.5" body length (size small)
- constructed with Bluesign Approved Fabrics
I am 5'2" 115lbs and bought a size XS. I LOVE this! Winters where I live are cold, dry and sunny. 20's and 30's, windy with a blazing sun. I run hot and I struggle to find clothes that cut the wind without making me overheat. But this is a perfect solution! The crop allows heat to escape while the top part cuts the wind and keeps me warm. I do wish it came with a regular neck. And I love the watch window!
I own several other Oiselle tops (size 6 tanks, size S sweater) that fit perfectly. The small size of this top is tight across the shoulders and bust. I am 5'6", 130#, 32D.
I wasn't sure if this top would work for me because I don't wear this type of top with a neck nor do I typically wear crops. It works well over a tank and a tighter fitting long sleeve top. Love. love, love the watch hole. Whoever thought of this was a genius! The only thing I would change is the neck. I'd love to see one with a regular neck. I'm a 32DD and have both an XS and S versions of this. I prefer the XS so there isn't as much fabric floating around when running.
I have worn this top several times and have been really impressed--it layers well over long sleeves, the neck keeps me warm, and the reflectiveness is pretty amazing and makes me feel much safer on runs. Hoping for more from this line in the next season! The only thing I'm not sure about are the wrist holes--the thumb holes I get, but not sure why there's also an opening at the wrist.
I'm 5'6", 140 pounds, and wear a medium--it fits great for running without being too tight!
I live in the Tacoma, WA area and this running top is great for morning runs. It is stylish, breathable, and reflective. I wear this every morning and I don't care how smelly it gets:-) I wear it!
This long sleeve makes it easy to be seen in dark or dim light. I had some cars unexpectedly stop for me to cross a busy street, which was great! I love that the fabric is subtle and doesn't have that reflective look. I don't usually wear crop tops, but found that layering with a tank top meant that I didn't get too hot during my runs and I still felt comfortable. I'm surprised to find that feel pretty amazing in a crop top. Trying to live on my fashion edge a little and it's fun! I usually wear a 6 or 8 in Oiselle, 34C and got the medium.
Disclaimer: I have never worn a crop top before. I bought this more for the reflective qualities than for the cut! It is growing on me, but I'm VERY glad I sized up. I normally wear a size 8 in Oiselle tops (36B or 34 C, 5'5, 145, large rib cage), and I bought a large. It's definitely more form fitting on me than it appears in the pictures, even going up a size! Also, I wish the neck cut was different, or that there was a zipper option to open it up a little bit. It feels slightly restrictive, and I won't be able to layer it over anything else with a collar. However, I wore it last night at twilight in about 50 degrees falling quickly to 30 degrees by the end of my run, and it was perfect over a thin long sleeve!
This is one of my favorite Oiselle pieces ever. The cropped length makes it perfect for cold race mornings—you can wear a tank top with your bib underneath without worrying about your bib number being visible. There's also less shirt to flap around if you decide to tie it around your waist as it warm up! The reflectivity is an added bonus...it makes it a wonderful evening run layer. No one is going to miss you in this! My only negative is that it only comes in one color...I would happily buy this in every color if they released it in more!! I'd love a non-reflective version that is still cropped. I'm 5'4" 130lbs and a small is great.
