THE NORTH FACE SEAMLESS LONG-SLEEVED ZIP-NECK 2009

Review: The polyester/elastane fabric is wonderfully stretchy so it doesn’t feel at all restrictive, making it about perfect for performance if a little figure-hugging for casual wear. This top worked well, drawing perspiration away from the skin quickly and providing a decent amount of insulation. The long zip made it easy to spill some heat when necessary.
