Great shirt, color a bit darker than photo

I purchased the Icebreaker Bodyfit 200 Oasis Base Layer Top as I am converting all of my base layers to merino wool.

The Good: This shirt fits true to size, is soft and comfortable against the skin, and a good weight for lightweight base layer without being too light. The shirt passed the stink test with flying colors; wore it 6 days without washing only letting it dry and air out between wears, lots of hiking and sweating and each time base the nose test before wearing again…no stink. Washed in machine, gentle cycle, cold water, wool friendly detergent, air dried on drying rack, and no shrinkage.

I did purchase this shirt hoping that I could wear it in uniform as the in the photo they appear to be desert tan; not so much. They are more of a coyote tan or something in-between coyote and desert really and not appropriate for wear with US Army ACUs. Still a great shirt though and I love it for off duty wear; just wish I could find a merino wool desert tan t-shirt to wear in uniform when in the field or deployed.
