I'm normally layer up when running in cold weather. Today it was sunny and in the low 20's. I decided to try out this shirt in what I consider extreme conditions. I put on a thin wicking t-shirt and this shirt over top. Once I got about 3/4 of a mile into the run where I was generating heat I really got comfortable. I didn't sweat, creating a cool down situation and I maintained enough heat to stay comfortable. I was really impressed with how the Omni-Heat worked. The shirt fits snug and so far has held up. I bought it to wear during work which I am in the field most of the time. I can't afford to sweat in the winter so this shirt should help me regulate body heat to stay safe and comfortable.
I would recommend this product.

The omniheat technology is incredible. I got this product as a gift for my picky stepdad, and he is nothing but happy with it. It fits great and it keeps him warm without overheating.

I bought this for my husband, originally in a medium, which is his normal size. I had to return it for a large. It runs slightly small, but is a great quality shirt, and very warm. He uses it for cold weather road biking, and I will probably order another for Christmas. I'd love to see it in some bright colors, to be safer on the road.
I would recommend this product.

I use the baselayer during the winters for CrossFit. It provides great flexibility duriing the WODs, it's breathable while I'm inside, and it provides warmth on the runs outside.

For my temperature preference, this baselayer is all I need to go running when it is windy and around 50. I can really feel the omni-heat kick in after about 20 minutes and use the zipper to cool down. The sleeves are plenty long enough too.
I would recommend this product.

So far I have found this garment to perform as advertised. It does keep you warm, especially when you exercise. My only complaint so far is that while it is supposed to have a tight fit, the area under the armpits is too tight and the seam chafes me. I wish there was a little more give in the pectoral/armpit area.
I would recommend this product.

Seems like a nice product, but is way too tight in the arm pit areas. I am familiar with snug compression type clothing, but this binds up in the armpit areas. I also have many other Columbia products that I fit in fine as a large. If it fit properly, I think it would be a great product.
I would recommend this product.

It's thin, warm and form fitting. Luckily I read other reviews and ordered an extra large though. I'm a slim 6'5" and the XL fits me snugly.

I have not yet field tested this product. Upon arrival though it met my expectations for look, feel and comfort. Backpacking next week, so I'll be able to test it and update this review. So far, so ... great.

Ok, I know Columbia is excited about their new Omni-heat technology, but it seems like it's almost impossible to get products without it. On it's face, Omni-heat may seem like a good idea for a skin tight base layer. But my intended use for this shift was running, and those tiny little dots cause chaffing. I may end up using it for camping, and if I do I'll add to this review
I do not recommend this product.

Best bestlayer I have tried. Lightweight yet warms up quickly with activity. Only downside is the thumb holes. As a crosscounty skier I found the thumb holes were not very comfortable. I just don't use them.

Order more than one, because you'll want to wear it every day. When the weather is 20-30 degrees, and your days are full of downhill, cross-country, or skate skiing, or snow-shoeing, this is the perfect layer. Downhill it was great with as a base layer; skate-skiing it was all you needed under something windproof. Love it!
I would recommend this product.
