Perfect solution for thin,light weight layer. I practcally live in these from fall to spring. They keep me warm without the bulk or itchiness of other wools. They are a snug fit so order a size up if that is a bother for you. I'm a size 6/8, 125lbs and ordered a medium and they FIT me. I will or...

I had the opportunity to compare both of these excellent brands on the same hike - 15 -22 degrees F. temp, 9" snow with heavy crust, for 2 1/2 hours - Medima bottoms, Icebreaker top. Both garments performed beautifully. I got warm quickly with trail breaking, sweated and got warmer still, then stopped to drive home and run errands in town for an hour, and began to chill. The ultimate test is which garment allows you to re-heat more quickly. Maybe not a completely fair test, but the Medimas seemed to stay drier and allow me to re-heat my bottom half more quickly. I wamed up a little more slowly in the icebreaker top but it wicked and allowed me to regain body heat as well. The Icebreaker top is a little softer but both are comfortable. I have washed each 3-4 times. Each time, they soften. I went with the Medima bottoms because I wanted them to double as leggings. Reviews of the Icebreaker bottoms mentioned that the knees bagged out a little too much for this use. I went with the Icebreaker top for the zip up turtleneck. My take is that Medima has the edge in wicking, warmth and fashion; Icebreaker the edge in softness and sports styling. Both are great products - you can't go wrong with either for a range of uses.
