Most Helpful 5-Star Review
Verified Buyer Reviewed by hikerbabe from Washington State on Wednesday, March 8, 2017This shirt is true to size, feels good on the skin, and is moderately warm. I have other 250 base layer tops, but this one is not as warm as the others. However, for the price, fit, and fabric comfort I would buy another one for sure.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Wray from New York, New York on Tuesday, February 21, 2017I'm very pleased with this SmartWool Base Layer Top! It is difficult for me to find a shirt that is small enough since I am a petite 5' 2" tall. This shirt fits me perfectly. SmartWool produces a wonderful product.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Oaklandish from Oakland, CA on Tuesday, January 31, 2017Worth the price. Feels good as soon as you put it on. I haven't used it yet (ski trip in a few weeks) but I'm sure I'll be comfortable and warm.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by NanaJean from Newton on Tuesday, January 31, 2017Great medium weight base layer that I wear alone or under a vest. Soft, non-scratchy wool. Great fit. I'm 5'2" 115#, and small fit snug but not tight.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Joanna from Pennsylvania on Monday, January 30, 2017These tops are the best! Nice and warm, not itchy (and I have sensitive skin). Wash and dry well, odor-resistant. I love the fact that I can zip up the neck when out, then lower it when in a warmer environment. I must have bought 10 of these shirts over the years, and have gotten my daughter-in-law hooked on them, too. And we do not use them just as base layers. They are fashionable enough to stand on their own for casual wear.

I wear mine for winter activities, not hard core sports.
It's a true sweater, not a compression shirt.
I am not a runner Alyssa so I can't say anything about that. I enjoy horse back riding and find the SmartWool base layers perfect for riding in a wide range of conditions. In the colder weather I use it as a base layer and as the day warms up can take off the outer layer and ride only in the base layer. If it gets even warmer I just unzip the neck and push up the sleeves. I have ridden on days where the temps range from 50 degrees F in the morning to 75 in the afternoon and been totally comfortable. Our rides average about 3 hours. SmartWool base layers are the best garment to wear when you sweat since they wick moisture away and are always great against your skin; never clammy.
I've used this as a single layer when it's cool outside and as a base layer when it's colder during my early morning runs and it's been fantastic. I normally run five miles a day and this really has kept me warm, dry, and comfortable. I highly recommend this shirt but keep in mind some people are sensitive to the material so I would try this on at the store first if you've never worn this brand before. Also, it will give you an idea of what size you should get based on how you want it to fit. Regarding the marathon, I think it will hold up just fine but you should be able to better gage how well it will perform after your first run.
I would think this should work fine for running.
I completely agree with Nola. I've run 5ks to half marathons in every kind of performance fabric, and this is by far my favorite shirt to run in when temps are in the mid-50s or below. My skin is very sensitive and I can't wear most wool, but these shirts are super soft. They wick moisture and insulate beautifully, yet i have yet to overheat in mine.
