    Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Women's Techwick Essentials 1/4 Zip, L/S:

    I have worn EMS techwick products for over 15 years...I rely on them. Have tried other brands. This mid-layer shirt easily layers over short sleeve techwicks or other base layers, and is breathable when layered over with a fleece. I never overheat when wearing techwick products.
    I left off a star because of the over-large zipper garage which makes it uncomfortable to zip to the throat. Since I rarely do that, the shirt is still wonderful. I bought white and black once size larger than normal because I like a roomy fit, but true size techwick fleece because I don't want it too bulky. If I was to order my normal size (M) the shirt would still fit great and allow layering of most shirts.

    Between sizes

    Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Women's Techwick Essentials 1/4 Zip, L/S:

    I was psyched enough by a recent low-price promotion to order six of these shirts. Unfortunately, the styling had changed since I last purchased this shirt (size Large). This time, the Medium was too snug under the arms while the Large was way too roomy in the arms, a bit too roomy in the body, and had sleeves that reached mid-palm on my long arms.

    I'll continue to use and appreciate the older-style versions I have (despite their shortish sleeves).

      Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Women's Techwick Essentials 1/4 Zip, L/S:

      I have Techwick shirts that are 6 years old and still look great. This is one of EMS's best products - they are great looking, have a nice fit, take up no space in a suitcase and they just don't wear out. You can use the for gardening, hiking, running, biking, boating and regular life. Layering short sleeves under long sleeves is great for cool evenings around the campfire or early morning hikes.

      Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Women's Techwick Essentials 1/4 Zip, L/S:

      I may come across more negative on this garment than others who had not ordered an earlier version of the same top from EMS. The former version was really super! (I would rate the FORMER version 5 stars.)This one has it flaws, which may be accentuated to me knowing that it could be so much nicer.

      The biggest very visible annoyance is the finishing of the slightly stand-up zippered neck. This version adds a roll of fabric at the top of the neck that doesn't allow it to fall evenly when unzipped. Instead it droops to one side or the other. The techwick material also seems to be slightly inferior or not cut as well, the outcome is that the material doesn't hang as smoothly as it did in the earlier version. It does the job of offering a thin, wicking underlayer but I was counting on being able to wear it as I do the earlier ones, as a top on its own since it can be so versatile as a single lightweight top or first layer with sweater, shirt or vest. Still a good value if you don't have as high of expectations as mine.

      Would I recommend it to a friend? Yes, with the above qualifiers, but not if a friend was looking for a versatile top that could have many applications.

      Great shirt in slightly cool weather or breezy warm weather for hiking and biking. Good fit. I like the fabric and length but the length did shrink a bit with washing so I have been hanging them to dry

        I gave this to my mom and she likes it a lot! My only complaint is it fit a little looser than I expected but I should have just returned it for a smaller size.

        Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Women's Techwick Essentials 1/4 Zip, L/S:

        The only complaint I have, and it's pretty much about all hiking gear made for women, is that we can only seem to get things that come in some shade of pink, purple, or aqua. This woman likes browns and greens, and I can't believe I'm alone.
