This page is provided for reference to historical product information.

  • 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
  • Center front zipper allows ventilation control
  • 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; offset shoulder seams prevent chafing under backpack straps
  • 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 Zip-T top features a next-to-skin fit that hugs the body

by fromOne size doesn't fit all Love the design and fit when it's on, except: Sizing is weird; I wear an S, but couldn't get into the S. M looks and feels great on but is hard to get on and off. Maybe this would work best as a zip-up. Sleeves really need elastic cuffs; unless you have unusually long arms these cuffs are always going to get into your food, your water, your fire, etc.

by fromGood Fit, Stayed Cool Bought this for the winter, base layer for skiing but couldn't wait to use it. Took the dog out for a nice long fall hike, temp in low - mid 50's. Had quik dry shirt underneath, the hike was vigorous... my siberian husky cam out from summer hibernation. REI Heavyweight Polartec Power Dry Zip-T kept me warm and dry, cant wait till ski season

by fromGreat baselayer I own a couple of these and a couple in the crew style and they are great as a base layer or alone ( as long as it isn't to breezy) and still stay fairly warm when wet. They are very durable and hold their own against much more expensive options

by fromFor the price, can't beat it!!! Excellent for skiing as a midlayer under a shell followed up by a baselayer underneath. I'm 5'11" 180lbs and typically fall right between M and L in most clothes, but the large fits me comfortably/relaxed. The medium which I tried in at the store was much too small, I could barely get it over my chest. The outside material is smooth, not quite silky, but a polyester-ish feeling that allows a shell to glide easily over it. The inside is very soft fleece which even feels nice against bare skin, although I typically wear a light base layer or t-shirt underneath. I bought this for a ski layer, but I like it so much I even wear it casually, around town, to work, even lounging around the house. My wife even says it looks good too! Can't beat that! I may buy it in another color. It breathes incredibly well for how thick it is and dries quick too. Love love love this fleece (or whatever it is)!

by fromUnderlying warmth and comfort I used this for the first time in Alaska enduirng 05 to -30 degree conditions. This base layer kept me warm and vented perspiration effectively, while behaving as a well-fitted shirt should, comfortable. Another feature I like is the scalability this base layer gives you, allowing you to add or remove layers as conditons change without having to remove the shirt as it can stand on its own as you warm up.

by fromPolartec Power The heavy weight top and bottom work as well as the medium weight and light weight. If not wearing them I almost always have a set or two on the motorcycle. I adventure travel throughout California and as far east as Montana and Texas.

by fromGreat base layer Great insulator for cold weather hunting and fishing. Thought I followed the sizing chart but Medium was way too small. Easily returned for Large which is great except for sleeves slightly long. Have used on January trout fishing outing and stayed toasty!
