The French Army F1 Thermal long sleeve shirt is the equivalent of the British Army thermal shirt, known as Norwegian Shirt or Norgie Top. Made from cotton, it is lightweight and able to absorb sweat keeping you cool in warmer conditions. Alternatively when used in cold environments, these are best used for warmth during low-intensity activities. A 1/4 zip goes all the way to the top of the collar. The collar itself can be rolled up or down depending on how much heat you want to retain around the neck. With the right know-how these French Army thermal shirts are great for layering up for multiple activities.
- 1/4 zip up to chin
- Collar can be worn up or rolled down
- Button fastening cuffs

These are top quality, not as heavy as the British version, fantastic for layering, best as a base or second layer. Buttons on cuff are small compare the British version, more the size of a shirt button. Typically French
Not as thick as the British version, cuff buttons also small compared to the British version. Must be made for the French, long bodied short legged they tend to be. Body is a good length. I think this French army garment will serve me well, I would have preferred the used one, hopefully this new one won’t shrink in the wash. Will wait to see how it washes before considering another new one
This top can pass a designer top on your casual Friday in the office. It will keep you nice and warm as a base layer on a hike. It is durable. It is made of great quantity fabric that feels soft against the body. The Slightly harder fabric on the cuffs makes it just right if you want to toll them up. The zip at the top is just right for that extra warmth. All round fantastic items that translates very well into informal wear.
bought this for a ski trip but wear it all the time good by itself but awesome when you layer up.
I forgot to add, I think the button cuffs are a good idea vs. elasticated cuffs. if you need to, you can easily roll the sleeves up with out creating a "tourniquet effect" on your forearms. Cheers again.
