Material definitely made for cool weather. I find the jersey is a bit smaller than I expected. I frequently use the shrug for other jerseys I have. The arms have an extra extension that, on short me, reach almost to the base of my fingers. The ebony color is more of a medium gray with the red being a dull red-brick color. Neck/zipper comfort is decent. Just the shrug alone was enough to keep me toasty in about 40 degree weather. Moisture-wicking worked well. Really handy set to have around. If you take off shrug and roll up to pack away in back pocket, said pocket is super full and nothing else fits in. Overall I would recommend and am thinking of getting 2nd one.
