Customer reviews for Columbia Men's Baselayer Heavyweight Half Zip Top

Columbia Men's Baselayer Heavyweight Half Zip Top

Built for warmth and movement in the deep cold, this toasty baselayer features a performance blend of stretchy, body heat retaining thermal reflective waffle fabric with Omni-Wick® stretch jersey inserts at the side/underarm to disperse excess heat and wick sweat during dynamic activity. Raglan sleeves deliver better range of motion, and a dropped hem in back provides more coverage where it counts.

Bought this for cold nights at work when temps get below freezing. worked great. Sleeves on this are long enough to keep the thumb wholes from pulling back and becoming uncomfortable. Previously purchased ones that the sleeves were not long enough, very uncomfortable!
I would recommend this product.

Solid heavy weight. Fits true to size. not too thick like expedition weight gear. Great base layer or active top!
I would recommend this product.

nice and light but not as warm as a hoped, moisture wicking works well and great for heavy activity.
I would recommend this product.

Disappointed.

The first time I wore this, as a baselayer while skiing, it snagged. I have to wonder how long it will last before it starts to unravel

I wanted this for a base layer when I ride my motorcycle in the winter when temps are in the high 30's - low 40's. It has been a great success.
This is well made, the OmniWick works really well to keep me dry even when I start to sweat. And the Omni Heat is noticeably warmer than other items without it.
The best part is that this garment is so well cut and constructed that it is comfortable to wear all the time. I wear it under a tee shirt and feel perfectly comfortable. I can't say enough good stuff about this. Great experience with it.
I would recommend this product.

I hunt 50+ days per year and these are the absolute warmest thermals that I have ever owned. These are for long periods of low activity as with even moderate activity you will start to sweat, even in frigid cold. This thermal with the omni heat 1/2 zip pullover is my "Go To" layering on the coldest days. Great Product!
I would recommend this product.

Loved the look and fit (size large - 6ft 170lbs). I wore about 3x before I started noticing a ton of snags throughout the shirt. Not a big deal when wearing as baselayer but I liked to wear as light jacket as well.
I do not recommend this product.

This works if you have a good body. If you don't, only the omni heat works. Great product !!!
