Not sure if I have had this light weight material before from Icebreaker. It seems as well designed and made as other Icebreaker gear that I am very happy with. I suppose there is not a lot that can be wrong with the design of a T-shirt made with a fabric that has stretch in it, but with Icebreaker, you expect it to be optimised that bit better. I got this one in the tan colour and am experimenting with wearing it under business shirts. This is the first such merino baselayer shirt I've had that is 'tagless' in that the information is printed on the inside of the collar at rear, rather than having a sewn in tag. This is a practical additional refinement.

The Icebreaker body fit 150 atlas shirt is now my favorite shirt. After years of using synthetics in my outdoor activities, I am delighted to have left the dark side and have found a better way. I was tired of my synthetics smelling foul after only a couple hours of wearing. Now I exclusively wear merino wool and couldn't be happier. I can work hard in the same shirt for a couple days before it requires cleaning. It's warmer, more flame resistant, more smell resistant, warm when wet, and wicks/dries extremely well. What else do you want? Very well made like all Icebreaker products. Only downside: you should always hang dry the wool.

By the sizing chart I should fit a large, but with a long torso and having another XL Bodyfit 150 that is marginally short, I ordered the XXL which turned out to be even shorter than my XL Bodyfit 150. I like the material, color, and construction, but not the length. It's going back.

This fits like an undershirt, and that's the only way you can wear it - under another shirt. Don't wear it alone. The fabric is so sheer that it shimmers. Nips also protrude, which is not a good look for any guy.

My wife has been after me for several years to try wearing merino wool underwear for hiking/backpacking. I resisted because of the price; this Icebreaker S/S shirt was more reasonably priced, so I bought a couple in size M. I thought they fit too tight, so I took them back to the Reno store and ordered size L. The Large size fit great and I've since ordered three more. They don't stink like polypro, they dry fast, and they work well by themselves for hiking when you're really working hard -or- they work great under a sun shirt when you're just hiking moderately fast. Icebreaker is a popular brand in Europe (Swiss) and this price is great!
