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.

The perfect cool weather top
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)

Flyout Wool Long Sleeve
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!

Perfect except skinny sleeves
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.

No wonder it's sold out
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!
Best Shirt Ever!!
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!

Lovechild of flyout and wazzie
I love wazzie wool for its ability to keep warm, even when wet, and its anti-stink. I love flyout for its ability to keep you cool and well ventilated when sweating buckets, on a hot day, or under a rain shell. Enter flyout wool. It really is the best of both worlds; it's sturdy (doesn't snag easy like flyout), it's soft (no itch like a lot of wool can), and it's the perfect fabric for 55 degrees and drizzle, or as a baselayer for colder. It would probably be great for warmer temps because it breathes, but recent winter weather has prevented me from testing. I like the neckline is at clavicle to protect my skin from sun and elements, and the striping details on the neck hem and wrists are a nice touch. The watch window works as advertised, although it is ~1 cm off center of where I wear my watch. The fit is true to size, although for me the sleeves seem just a hair tighter around the shoulders and biceps compared to the flyout long sleeve in the same size. I found I could wear it for three runs and a gym session before it needed to be washed.

This shirt is amazing!
I don't ever want to wear any other shirt again. It fits beautifully (even in length, which is hard to do since I'm tall) and I'm obsessed with the watch window! I will probably try and get away with wearing this to work because it's just so comfy. The fabric is not like anything I've ever felt before – I would never guess it has wool in it!

Wore this on a 28 degree day in Wisconsin and it was perfect! I am a warmer runner but regardless this piece was the best! For all our midwest Oiselle fans, for sure check this out! And for anyone who just wants a warm, wonderful piece of clothing-this is a need!
Arms too small
This shirt made me google "how to lose weight in your arms" because while the torso fit me perfectly, the arms are too tight. At first I thought this would be okay since the fabric was stretchy, but it gets less flexible the more you sweat. Also, the watch window is at...my mid forearm? Looks like I'll be fumbling with fabric after all.
- Shirt loos really nice on-body
- Torso to arm ratio
