Verified Buyer Reviewed by Cameron the Farmer from Georgia on Thursday, January 4, 2018Fits like a Slim Fit shirt. Very comfortable and warm. The zipper adds versatility to help regulate warmth. Would definitely purchase more.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by TJ7748 from Missouri on Tuesday, December 5, 2017Waiting to try it out. Looks and fits good!
Verified Buyer Reviewed by G.Wong San Diego from San Diego, CA on Saturday, December 2, 2017This is a Base Layer, the 250 weight is good enough to wear by itself during warmer weather.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Cheapskate from PA on Thursday, November 30, 2017Not much to say about the Smartwool quality, which is excellent and I'd purchase anytime at STP prices.
One thing that might be of help in picking a size, especially if you look like the model in the picture:
the seams in the shoulders are kind of stiff and limit the elasticity of the material. If your shoulders are significantly broader than your waist (lucky you!) and you pick a size for a tight fit (to get the benefits of smartwool temperature regulation) then the shoulders will be tight
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Oxygin from California on Wednesday, November 29, 2017I've been wearing Patagonia's Capilene mid-weight base layers for decades but finally decided to try the SmartWool 250 zip neck after reading some info at Outdoor Gear Lab. I've found SmartWool 250 keeps me warmer than Capilene partly because it clings closer to my skin. I also found it smoother, stretchier, and more comfortable to the touch than the Polartec Power Grid fabric that the current generation Capilene is made from. Capilene seems to breathe a little better though so might be better for aerobic activities where warmth is less of an issue. Also, I thought I'd itch from the Merino wool but no worries there. Time will tell how well the wool will last.
