Icebreaker clothing is crafted using merino wool grown in New Zealand’s Southern Alps, where weather can be extreme. Unlike synthetic fabrics, Icebreaker merino wool is grown and field-tested in the mountains, rather than created in a lab. Engineered to perform in a variety of outdoor activities, Icebreaker clothing naturally regulates temperature, breathes to prevent clamminess, resists odor for weeks, and protects skin from the sun. Superfine merino wool is also much softer than traditional wool, so you’re never itchy or uncomfortable. ...

I had purchased one of these shirts a couple years ago and was greatly impressed, so am surprised they are discontinued. The shirt is comfortable, soft, moves well with the body, breathable, dries quickly, and has nice color options. I am a firefighter and wear them as undershirts to absorb sweat but still dry out quickly - they do just that while being durable (including machine washable!). The style is loose fitting but fairly true to size.

I've had a pair of these for over two years now and am looking at replacements. I'm sad to see they're discontinued and out of my size. I have a dozen different running shorts, but these are always my default favorites. I use them for running, hiking, walking the dog, and always include them in my pack when traveling. They've held up well for merino. I've worn and washed them on a weekly basis for the last two years and they're only now starting to show obvious signs of wear.
The waist band fits smoothly and comfortably compared to the elasticized waist bands on most of my other running shorts. The length is short enough to keep me cool, but modest enough that I don't feel uncomfortable popping into a store with these on. For reference, I'm 5'3", 117, with a 24" inch waist and the XS fits me well.

The shirt is the same width at the hips as it is at the waist. With the sticky, narrow hem, I don't see how it could fit anyone whose hips are wider than their waist, ie, virtually all women. Come on, Icebreaker, most women are not shaped like fashion models or men. It's time you started making clothes that fit regular people.
