Warm, comfortable, durable

Same review I left on amazon.com:
This is the very first Orage product that I've ever purchase and I am VERY pleased with it!
I highly recommend this to anybody who is physically active and looking for a SYNTHETIC baselayer. In fact, I think I'm starting to prefer this over my Patagonia Capilene and my Stoic Breathe.
At first, I thought the shirt was a bit tight on me, but I gave it a chance because I am also a big fan of Stoic products and their sizes are often smaller than other brands. Eventually I got used to it and now I actually really love the way it hugs my body. It feels as though there are fewer loose airpockets throughout the garment making it EXTREMELY WARM. I've worn ONLY this running in 35-40 degree weather. Once while snowboarding, I wore this with just a Mountain Hard Wear Monkey Man and a rain coat at night, 20 degrees, windy, and snowing and was WARM (I wore a rain coat because my girlfriend forgot her jacket). To be fair, I am more comfortable in the cold than most. Plus, the fabric itself it very soft and so it is COMFORATABLE to wear all day long.
I bought this in two colors: orange and blue. Both are very bright, but that's partly why I bought them so I would be easy to spot while running in twilight or in an emergency situation in the backcountry (climber/snowboarder). I've only owned it for a few months, so I can't speak to its durability, but I've tried to take care of it (even following the machine wash instructions!) and so far it still seems good as new!
