Excellent bit of kit - watch the sizing!

Posted11 November 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable
First base layer I've bought for a while and I'm wondering why I've not been bothering with one in previous years. Just the job and I've dispensed with a thicker outer layer as a result. Can definitely feel the additional warmth it's provided as well as benefiting from the wicking properties.
Others have commented on the sizing previously and thanks to them I got this one right. I'm usually a Large but went XL with this and it's just right. It's a close fit, but comfortable as I think base layers should be.
For those wanting a base layer that is tight all over, whilst they're not flapping about the sleeves aren't the same close fit as the body, though admittedly I'm not exactly well built in that regard!
I bought one, wore it for a week commuting and then bought another one so that I've always got a spare for weekends/non-biking activities in the cold.

Pros: Good value, Comfortable, Lightweight
This was a bargain. Very comfortable - you forget you're wearing it. And it performs well. Recommended.

Altura Sizing Chart Way Way Out.

Posted29 September 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value
Followed Altura sizing chart on the Evans website, even getting the wife to double check and ordered the small. Received in record time problem being I could only get one arm in due to the size. Reordered next size up which fitted (although still slightly tight around the neck) and gave the small to my 10year old nephew, whom it just fits.

comfortable

Posted26 September 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight
usually im an extra small in most tops but getting a small for this was a good idea. i cycly around 10 miles to & from work almost every day & this top is warm & comfortable (although a little tight around the neck) well recommended for these autumnal evenings at the moment & i would recommend getting the next size up from what you usually are

Good for the price

Posted12 September 2014
No, I do not recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Lightweight
Cons: a little tight
A little tight but that may be I'm a bit large. It is difficult to gage sizes on cycling clothes not everyone is like Bradley Wiggins. The item seems well made and I have no issues with it, I just need to realise extra large doesn't mean big in cycling clothes.

Not what I was expecting!

Posted13 May 2013
No, I do not recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Lightweight
Cons: Uncomfortable
I wanted something to wear under my jacket for commuting or something without my jacket - I ordered the item in both M and L (both of which were far too tight for my liking - but apparently thats how they fit!) - I sent them back and ordered a Jersey instead which is what I should of got in the first place!
