The Radiant top is a relaxed fit, long-sleeved top with a generous hood. The fabric has a slight stretch and feels very soft to the touch. The fit is pretty true-to-size plus the overall length is good. The relaxed style means that it can be easily worn over a base layer - or even a base layer plus second mid-layer - so lots of flexibility in how it's used. The good length sleeves finish in a snug-fitting cuff with thumb-loops. There are no pockets aside from a small security pocket in the left side seam. The overall finish is of a high standard throughout .
I've been wearing it as a mid-layer with a Paramo base layer and Bergans of Norway jacket in late Autumn/early Winter when temperatures have been a reasonably mild 9-10 deg C and at times rather cooler at 4-5 deg C. For low level walking, I've been comfortable at the higher temperature but felt the need for an additional layer at the cooler one. I also found that I definitely needed something else around my neck as the - otherwise attractive - open style of the hood does allow the wind to whistle around!
Light enough to have in a daypack for when an extra layer is needed during cooler conditions, I've also appreciated the understated style of the Radiant around town when needing some extra warmth.
Rohan's Radiant hooded top is a stylish, quality option as a midlayer for milder conditions - or in combination with another layer in colder weather. Also good looking enough for more general leisure wear.
