From travel to dinners out, from the hiking trail to the golf course, this multifunctional quarter-zip delivers a performance take on a classic style. Built with 4-way stretch, essential moisture management, and temperature regulation, the Adapt Quarter Zip will keep you comfortable even when the weather changes.
Justin's review from a few weeks ago is *exactly* all that I would say (minus the zipper issue).
TL;DR. The material is WAY stretchier than anticipated and incredibly comfortable, but it also feels extremely delicate. I too have noticed myself babying the piece while wearing it and have concerns about its long-term durability.
Will (founder) here. I felt the same way about this fabric, but to be honest, I have been wearing it for over 9 months and have yet to see the first bit of pilling. It's incredibly durable for how soft and stretchy it is. You're going to love it!
Absolutely fantastic product. I can’t take it off!!!
I just want to start to off this review by laying out my bona fides: I love Western Rise the company and their products. I own and love a pair of Evolution 1.0 pants, a pair Evolution 2.0 Chinos, a pair of Diversion pants, multiple pairs of Spectrum Joggers, 2 Versa Hats, multiple Merino StrongCore Tees, multiple X-Cotton Henleys, a Limitless Merino Button-Down, and now an Adapt Quarter-Zip. I say all of this only to point out that I am clearly a Western Rise fanboy. If anything, I am clearly biased towards the company.
I really, really do like this Quarter-Zip. It has a feeling and a cut that is distinctly Western Rise. It is super soft and stretchy. Definitely way more soft and stretchy than it looks in the pictures on the website. I really do like the way that it feels and looks on me. Having only had it for little more than a week, I have taken it on a hike in the mountains where it kept me appropriately warm and I have also taken it out in the warm sun where it did not make me overly hot. It really did adapt to the situations that I placed it in - as advertised.
With all of those good things being said, I really fear for this piece’s longevity. Stemming from 3 main areas of concern:
1. It is so soft and supple that I regularly find myself worrying about it and babying it in everyday life. Although it has performed above and beyond out in the field, I still work primarily from home and sit in a mesh office chair most of the day. The soft material of the Adapt Quarter…

This top went from being an added layer while fly fishing to being a dressy layer over a shirt at dinner. It was completely at home on the river as it was at a nice restaurant. The simple design styling makes this really flexible.
Like the fit, love the material, only down side is I only have one.
