This is the 320g Original Zip Icebreaker and if you look around for reviews it's a classic and it holds up very well. It's an extremely warm sweater, form fitting, and the thumbholes can be nice to keep the sleeves in place if you're active. Just as awesome as everything else Icebreaker makes. Buy i... Read More

    As mentioned in the description the fit is not slim/body hugging and hence this is more of a warm mid layer than a base layer. Certainly warm!

    Very well constructed ...can be used as an outer layer ... warmth at 40 degrees

    This is a very nice piece. I am 6'1, 180 lbs. I got the small probably because they didn't have the medium. Someone wrote that these run a bit big... This fits well, but there isn't much to tuck in. Looks sharp and has a moderately hefty weight to it. I like it a lot. Use it for a layer hiking in the cold and around the house etc. Ice Breaker makes really nice stuff. I have been buying merino for about a year and IB is generally the best of what I have gotten, having bought Ivanhoe, Smartwool etc,,,

    almost too nice to wear as a base layer...you could use as casual work day sweater

    Like the experience of some other reviewers, this base layer has a bulky fit in the upper body/shoulder area for me though this could have been due to circumstances. I'm 6'1" and 155 Lbs and would have purchased a medium but as that size was unavailable had to go with large.

    Otherwise, the material is of high quality and workmanship is excellent with no loose threads initially nor after one hand washing so far. It has not shrunk noticeably after that washing and line drying. The wool is slightly scratchy but not really noticeable in use. It is VERY warm as a base layer for cycling in temps below 30 degrees. I wear it under a heavyweight jersey and shell jacket from 15-25 degrees and the only issue I have is that maybe it is too warm such that it gets soaked with sweat and becomes clammy about halfway through the ride, inducing some chill when riding fast or into a headwind. In temps closer to 30 I wear it alone under an insulated jacket and I guess the additional breatheability prevents it from getting soaked.

    Overall, very pleased with purchase and probably would have given it 5 stars if the fit was better.
