Gear Prime Agnello Top Review

January 30, 2009

Getting the best of both worlds only comes once in a long while. You know how you love your merino top and all its benefits? How about your old fleece that you can't throw away? Stop cutting and trying to sew your clothing together, the Agnello top takes care of it for you. I love my Mountain Hardwear Powerstretch Zip but it can get a bit hot in the chest. The Agnello has merino where it needs to be and then does a powerstretch fleece in the arms. I've taken this skiing a couple times already and it works. Keeping your arms warm is key and after working hard your chest is most likely over heating. Thumb holes. I share Claire's excitement about thumb holes which the Agnello also provides. Cold morning and your typing away at work? Slip on those thumb holes and enjoy. And of course the other 364 days a year your going to need those thumb holes for skiing and running around in the outdoors. I have dubbed this a solid winter piece but I am not ruling it out for backpacking. Sizing is true to size. I am 165lbs. and 5"7' and the medium works great, which is what I normally wear in everything else. Another cool feature is there is powerstretch fleece up the sides of the back placed to keep you plenty warm all around. For camping I used this shirt as a pillow and it worked very nicely, multi-featured, I like it! From what I have seen with logo wear, I would buy 2-3 of these because you never know if they're going to come back or not. This piece is definitely worth getting a couple of, you never know what tragedy can befall your gear. BUY NOW: The Prime Agnello Top at
