REI Powerflyte Half-Zip Top - Men's Tallis rated2.25out of5by4.
Rated1out of5byrcmstereofromseems downgradedI still have two of a previous generation of shirt bought several years ago that this REI Powerflyte replaced. I know because of the limited number of tall sizes. The older shirts were thicker material and had a more tailored fit. Most comfortable shirts I ever owned. Snug where they need to be but allow for freedom of movement. I still use them year round to ski, frame houses, play tennis. They kept me warm but I forgot they were on. This newer version feels like three rectangles thrown together, and they are not much thicker than long underwear. The torso is like a box, loose around the waist and tight on the shoulders. Kind of the opposite of what I was expecting. And the sleeves are too short.

Rated5out of5byilovegeartoomuchfromLove the shirt, love the fitOverall I really love this shirt. It's very warm for how thin it is and is soft and comfy. Possibly my favorite part is that I was able to get it in a Medium Tall! Being 6'1" and 175lbs I have gotten used to sleeves that are too short and exposing my stomach any time I lift my arms but this solves both of those problems with ease.
I have not been able to test it out in a high activity situation so I can't comment on breathability. I also wouldn't expect it to protect from any rain, but it's a mid-layer so that's to be expected. I considered dinging it 1 star because it could be a little more fashionable but I do like the look overall.

Rated2out of5bySTAHNGfromToo tight.I mostly used this product for a mid layer for cycling in the winter time. It felt too tight around my arm pits and uncomfortable for a casual use.

Rated1out of5byMotoEricfromShoulders are too tightI returned the product without using it because the fit around the shoulders and arm pits was uncomfortably tight. I ordered medium tall to fit a slim 6'1" 156 lb. frame. Sleeve, body length, and torso width were fine. The shoulders were way under proportion.
