A fine technical midweight

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Happy Hiker from Bay Area, CA on Tuesday, December 29, 2015
First, the sizing of Smartwool is roomier than Icebreaker so pay particular attention to your sizing selection. Second, my opinion is that Smartwool has better overall quality control than Icebreaker so all the Smartwool I owned are of the highest quality.

On the performance, the product is typical of a fine weave merino wool technical top. However, since the fit is roomier than my Icebreaker Bodyfit 260g/m2, though the weight of the this piece is at 280g/m2, it is less warm than the Icebreaker Bodyfit. I used the dryer at the lowest setting to reduce the size a bit, but the outcome is not as desireable as proper sizing.

I love Smartwool. I prefer the quality of Smartwool over Icebreaker. But for a lean, athletic, type body, Icebreaker has better fit. (I am 5'10" tall at 158 lbs and 30" waist.)

In Summary, this is a fantastic mid-weight layer.
