Nice fabric...awkward fit
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
When I pulled this out of the box, I thought it was going to be a winner, but it ended up being the most awkward fitting top I've tried. I like tops with a smaller crew neck, but this neck was uncomfortably tight. There was also way too much fabric in the shoulder area, which caused a lot of fabric to bunch up in the front on each side where my arms meet my upper body. I've never seen a worse fitting top. The fabric was great, but it would need to be completely redesigned before it would fit me. I'm guessing that the neck is made tight to fit under a drysuit, and that the shoulders are made big to accommodate very muscular arms. So if you're a swimmer, climber, or paddler with very large shoulders and arms, it might be worth a try.
