I owned one of these shirts and pant combos and purchased an additional a couple of years ago. Original has to be 10 years old! I still own both, but they are starting to get a bit ragged looking as I wear them almost daily. So purchasing a new one. This is the perfect base layer shirt for active women in winter climates. I use for hiking, skiing, horseback riding and just hanging around in Western MA which gets very cold. I am a size 6-8 and have medium which is perfect size.

I've got a small frame with narrow hips and shoulders, and, unfortunately for me, most women's running shirts are made to fit a woman's frame (they flare out at the hips and have more room in the chest area). This means that it's nearly impossible for me to find women's running shirts that don't a) gape around the hip area, b) sag in the chest, or c) mercilessly chafe my armpits and/or rub on my arms weird because the shoulders are too wide (I've even tried shirts that are supposed to be fitted in all these areas, and they still don't work).

Well, I was SO pleased to discover that the Helly Hansen Dry Original shirt fits me EVERYWHERE! The shirt somehow manages to fit close to my body without being uncomfortable or skin-tight. And the shoulder seams are even in the perfect spot. But curvy women don't despair! I imagine even a much curvier woman could wear this shirt comfortably — it seems stretchy enough to accommodate many different body types!

The material is light and breathable and feels good against my skin (as opposed to that gross Dri-Fit spandex/nylon stuff that's clingy and heavy and just flops around everywhere). It will make a good base layer during the cold months, and I'll wear it by itself in the spring and fall.

Anyway, if you're looking for a shirt that will be fitted without clinging or squeezing you, or if you run into the same problems with running shirts as I do, this is the shirt you want!

I will be buying a couple more of these for sure.

I was always cold during Alaskan winters until I discovered Helly Hansen base layer. Now I am warm all the time. The base layer crew shirt is very comfortable and layers nicely under other clothing without bulk or wrinkles. You will be glad you invested in it!

I bought this for my trip to British Columbia, Canada in the dead of winter. I was able to wear business suits with this under them without a lot of bulky clothing. I did wear a very light down vest with "barely -there" thickness between the two.I was sure glad I bought it. It was pointed out that people who visited from Calgary or Toronto often came in shorts. I was coming from 80 degree weather so consider what you are used as to in what to bring to stay warm. Now I have Velcro strips on my bedbug liner for my travel suitcase. Don't let something like Velcro touch the fabric as it will snag it badly. I snipped the snag with a scissors and expected a hole but it just had a kind of almost imperceptible run not as bad as a nylon stocking. Someone else commented on the kind of fabric used now is more sleek and nylon-like. Yes, that is true unlike my old one I got that was made for LLBean by Helly Hansen. It was much more wool-like in texture and pilled badly.

I would not recommend washing this one in hot water though it says that on the label. Heaven help you if you put in the drier though as the older ones just melted. It is still labeled as polypropylene so I would imagine skip the hot dryer. I would hand wash it or if in the wash put in an underwear bag. I have not washed it yet. I am not sorry for my purchase though the fabric weave is different than the one I purchased in the 90's that I liked better for its cuddly feeling. Maybe they were trying to avoid pilling with a new weave. I took off a star because it was not like my old one that they made for LLBean. I did not care about the pilling in days of old.

I live in Arizona and bought this as a base layer for cycling. I usually just wear with a wind vest and it is perfect. Very light weight and comfortable. I am 5'5 and 110 lbs and got a small. Great fit. Highly recommend!

I bought this top and matching 3/4 length pants at a ski resort. Very cute, accents your shape prettily, and seems to provide good wicking (the point of "dry" base layers). The top and pants work well under a parka and waterproof ski pants.

I liked them so much, I bought another pair at the next resort I went to. It was the last pair on the shelf, so I went online to Amazon and another site to complete one more set for 3-day trips!

I haven't worn Helly Hansen in years. Love the color and the material. Great layer for running in the winter. I'm 5'1 122 lbs. Ordered a small. Fits me perfectly. I often size up for a little more room. Will definitely order another color in medium and consider purchasing other Helly Hansen running gear.

It is very pretty, I get a surplus of compliments, but after only wearing it for a month (on the weekends) it is starting to pill. :(

This was a gift and was well appreciated and received. I plan on buying more of the same in the future.

I have very sensitive skin so I had to wear a cotton shirt underneath this one. The bands around the wrists are also a bit tight but once I was skiing I did not notice that. This top kept me very warm. I would recommend for outdoor activities in cold weather.
