LUX FORWARD HALF ZIP
We started with the basic function of a favorite half zip, and then took it up a level. Classic Lux, in all its softness and durability, is at the base. Then we added an extra long, asymmetrical zipper that allows for full ventilation, plus a tall collar. There's also a front kangaroo pocket that's ready to carry all the things, whether it's a mask, gaiter, or pair of ear buds. We're loving the length of this style, along with the wide, flat waistband. Lux life is a good life!

I originally ordered this in Queen in a small because of the size chart, but while traditionally lux soft and comfy a small was too big, a lot of space under the arms so I looked like a flying squirrel. I was going to exchange it for an XS in black (the only color in xs at the time, but just ordered the xs in black because I missed the exchange deadline, still planning to return the small. The extra small came before I could return the small and I knew right away when I opened the black extra small it was not the same fabric, and when I tried it on the zipper was bumpy from the get-go. I had my boyfriend feel both shirts without telling him anything and he said the black shirt wasn't soft and he didn't like it and the queen shirt was soft and felt like different material and that the black one felt cheap. I have read reviews about different colors feeling and fitting differently in the same item of clothing, but not experienced it myself. It's very strange, it's like two different shirts and now I have to return both of them. It's a bummer because I have Lux tank tops and shirts and I really wanted a shirt like this with a zipper, but the inaccuracy of the size chart and the inconsistency of the material and the quality of the make of the shirt itself makes this shirt a disappointment. How do all of these inconsistencies even happen? I would have kept the extra small if it was the same material as the queen color and if the zipper laid flat instead of all bunchy, the zipper on the queen small laid flat and was perfect. As a side note, I think as always thumb holes would also make a new version of the shirt better and a watch window and maybe a zipper pocket in the back instead of the funny kangaroo pocket. For reference I am 5'7" and 120lbs, so usual size is extra small or 2, but I have a chest which is why I sized up according to the chart originally. I wear a small in the flyte material as well because it's not that stretchy and extra small is too small for my chest I'm a C cup so my chest isn't huge. I really wish the extra small was made the same as the small...
This fit true to size, but the front pocket is a strange design and doesn't lie flat, so I returned this piece. For reference, I ordered a size small, 5'4, 128lbs, 34b.
I have this in 3 colors and I literally might get more :) super comfy, looks great with jeans, but also brightens and warms up any run. This is the light jacket we all need more of in our lives
The Lux fabric is so comfy and soft! I intended to wear this for running but I've been wearing it everywhere else as well. It's a very flattering cut/style and I think it will be a go-to in the fall/spring when a light layer is necessary, but a full jacket is too much.
I do wish it had thumbholes, and I wish the pocket were more secure - it's fine for casual wear but I would not put anything important in the pocket for running. Side zip pockets (or a back zip pocket) would be awesome. I'm 5'8", 150 lb, and got the medium (usual Oiselle size), and it is a roomy fit for me.
I love the color of the new lux (I got Queen) and the accent zip, but I think the older lux material was a little nicer and a little thicker. I also preferred the back zip pocket to the front kangaroo pocket. That being said I’m going to keep it because it will be a perfect nursing top, especially while out hiking, but the old style was slightly better
So soft & comfortable. Just received this in the mail & it is already a favorite. Only thing missing is thumb holes.
haven't taken it off since I got it! I have it in empire and I love the contrasting zipper color. it's great for nursing too since the zipper goes down so far. I love the pocket! only wish it came in another darker color w a contrasting zipper!
I love this top, esp in the QUEEN color. It layers well with tees or tanks, and goes with leggings or denim; I typically wear 6 in tops and ordered a M.
