The Tempo has a fast and light feel. The fabric is super-stretchy – great for easy movement – but it doesn’t offer much insulation so is best for those that run hot. It keeps wind out and breathes well, and it’ll repel a little moisture when needed too. It feels good as a mid-layer – snug fitting and not too bulky. The pockets are excellent: large and well-placed – and mesh lined for ventilation too. And the cuffs pull up and down easily. The collar is medium height but snug and drawcords control the tension in the hem.
Women’s version: Yes
