This page is provided for reference to historical product information.

Whether you're hiking, skiing, snowshoeing, mountaineering or Nordic skiing, the REI Heavyweight Polartec® Power Dry® Crew shirt offers proven value in a substantial base layer fabric.

  • Polartec Power Dry utilizes 2 different yarns on either side of the fabric to enhance comfort: interior yarn wicks moisture, and exterior yarn dries quickly
  • Combination of the 2 yarns helps keep you dry during highly aerobic activities because it moves moisture away from skin and dries more quickly single-component fabrics
  • Flatseam construction is soft and non-chafing next to skin, and seams are designed to work with pack straps at shoulders
  • Underarm and side gussets promote freedom of motion
  • Next-to-skin fit hugs the body, maintaining skin contact to boost fabric performance
  • Additional length helps garment stay tucked in, and smooth texture of outer surface makes it easy to slide on outer layers
  • Fabric offers UPF rating of 50+ to protect against harmful UV light

REI Heavyweight Polartec Power Dry Crew Shirt - Men'sis rated4.375out of5by8.
Rated5out of5byfromnice and cozyI am a lady, but went with the mens shirt, as I like the extra length in the arms and torso. This shirt is nice to have when it is really cold out. it wicks moisture away and drys quickly.

Rated2out of5byfromFit is too boxy and sleeves are too longMy primary purpose for this was a base layer when running in cold weather. It did serve its purpose as a warm base layer but it did not dry quickly after a 6 mile run. Also it was functionally warm but I would not wear this without some thing over it as the fit was very boxy and the sleeves were too long and worn just by itself does not look good.

Rated5out of5byfromFantastic ShirtI am finding this is a great shirt by itself for cold weather backpacking or as an underlayer with a t-shirt on top.

Rated4out of5byfromWarmI use the crew shirt under long-sleeve T-shirts. It's very warm and dries in less than 24-hours. I recommend hand-washing the crew shirt the first few times because of excess fabric dye.

Rated5out of5byfromJust what I wantedThis is basically an REI branded Polartec shirt. It is lightweight but its fairly thick and very warm - the inside feels like a microfleece material and the outside is more like polyester. It's just what I was looking for - I use it as a base layer (with a t-shirt under it) and my REI Taku shell on top. I commute to work everyday on a bicycle and this is perfect for the current weather (35-45º) It also dries very quickly I rarely ever dry it in the dryer I hang it up for a few hours and Im good to go.
