Reviewed by SRT from Pittsburgh, PA on Tuesday, August 5, 2014Perfect baselayer for my 3 year old who always complains that he is cold. Very soft, not scratchy at all, held up to being thrown in the washing machine, still in excellent condition after a season's use. Will be passing them on to his little brother!
Reviewed by Amy M from Twin Cities, MN on Thursday, August 8, 2013I ordered this shirt for both my two year old and five year old, Intending it as a base layer for our cold MN winters. They both liked it so much that it joined their summer wardrobes as well! The beauty of this is that the merino wool is just as suitable for hot summer days as it is for layering up
On chilly ones. It's keeping them cool and dry -- wish you carried more colors!
Reviewed by TJ from Australia on Friday, July 19, 2013I cannot speak highly enough of this product - fantastic! Warmth without weight or bulk. My children hate anything wool or slightly rough but with Icebreaker they put them on no complaint - ever.
Reviewed by DaisyFoto from Asheville, NC on Thursday, November 10, 2011I bought one of these for my son as a winter layering shirt. He loves this shirt and doesn't want to take it off half the time. He is average in size and the shirt fits slim, but that is perfect for the use we bought it for. The color is also a nice gray/blue. I wish they had more in different colors – especially for girls. Just noticed it says hand wash... I have machine washed and low heat dryed and it has done fine. I might not have bought it if I would have seen that before! But I'm glad I did!
- Best Uses: Layering
- Cons: Runs a little small

Reviewed by willo from Boston's north shore on Sunday, November 6, 2011I ordered one of these for each of my children, size 6 and size 8. The wool is so thin and stretchy, it doesn't matter that I sized up for one child. Even though the cut is very trim fit, it doesn't bind or feel uncomfortable on the child who is wearing his correct size.
We're using these layered over snug-fitting cotton pj's at night. (Aside from being form-fitting, wool is also naturally flame-resistant, making this a great use for this product.)
I'm shopping for the matching pants today and very tempted to get additional tanks to wear as vests/undershirts for daytime as well. My kids have a fair amount of SmartWool, which is also pretty nice, but the more sensitive kid sometimes says those are too itchy. He is the one who is now begging for a matching Icebreaker hat to wear as a "nightcap" with this tank. This is very high quality wool, amongst the least itchy I've ever felt.
- Best Uses: Whenever they're cold
- Cons: Line dry
- Pros: Comfortable, High Quality, Soft, Stretchy, Warm, Washable
Verified Buyer Reviewed by High Country Livin' from Colorado on Friday, October 14, 2011After initial comments from my son that the shirt was itchy he now finds the shirt comfortable and he even sleeps in it. I think it will be a good layer to add during winter outings x-country skiing.
- Best Uses: Layering, Sleep wear
- Cons: none
- Pros: Comfortable, Good Fit
