I like this top but have a couple problems, firstly the sizing is inconsistent with other pieces in crazys line-i have a large in the repeat top that fits me perfectly, but I am swimming in a large in this piece. Also I had inconsistent stitching on mine- the connective buttons that attach it to the matching pants had only a couple stitches and came off on the very first use, whereas on the repeat pant and top they havent shown any signs of distress after 50 days use. Other than that I like the features and design, esp the large front pocket and zippered beacon pocket. I would like a hood but thats personal preference. Great for spring and racing.

I got one of these a month and a half ago and have worn it probably 20 times since then. I like to do my regular touring in touring pants (OR Trailbreakers) and a skinsuit shirt; I have this one, and the Utah Skimo branded one made by Ski Trab. Compared to the trab, the Hugo is lighter/thinner, less wind-resistant, and somewhat better at staying dry. It has a nice big useful pocket on the front and the full complement of inner pockets you'd expect. I find it not quite substantial enough for temps below about 20F but that's just for me personally.

My only real gripe is that it doesn't have the grippy bit at the bottom to keep it from riding up under your pack. I find myself pulling it back down (or tucking it into my pants, which looks absurd even in the context of skimo attire) quite a bit. Otherwise no reservations, I'll be wearing this a whole lot more as the weather warms.
