A lightweight, sweat-shifting long sleeved base layer top from Lowe Alpine. Lightweight Dryflo® is the perfect base layer for all-round outdoor use. Lightweight Dryflo® gains stretch from its lighter construction. Lowe Alpine?s Dryflo® base layer fabric uses a permanent technology to shift sweat away from your skin, rather than relying on chemical treatments that can eventually wash out.
Dryflo® is quick drying, giving next to the skin comfort.

Untitled Review
I have inherited it from my dad this summer so I've still used this baselayer a few times. I've worn it with without any insulated top above. The wind was moderate and the temperature 12ºC / 54F. I was a little cold and I put it on. It got some cold so it didn't warm me at all. The other day I wore it with a Gore-Tex jacket above, because it was snowing slightly and the temperature lowed to 5ºC / 41F, and it warmed. So I deduce that it gets cold in windy conditions without any other garment above. I prefer those full weight or some other fleece tops. Cotton get soaked earlier than DRYflo but I believe that is more comfortable. The zip is a good thing to control the body temperature and the high neck is nice too.

Smells
I agree with Diego in that this is an excellent, lightweight warm baselayer. But it stinks like hell after just one wear. Its a small issue but when there are other non-smelly baselayers out there that perform just as well, what are you going to do?
