Great Fit, Very Comfortable
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Sente from Washington on Thursday, August 25, 2016
I've been looking for a lightweight merino wool t-shirt baselayer after climbing Rainier with a couple buddies who had them. I have two long sleeve baselayer merino shirts that I've used extensively in alpine mountaineering, but they get too hot and don't layer as well in widely varying temps (e.g. Rainier in the summer). I tried this model on at REI alongside a couple other lightweight options (Patagonia, TNF, Marmot) and loved the feel of these, but they didn't have my size (I'm 6'2, 185 and am often between a M and L - in this shirt I'm a solid M). Enter STP - I found this one was available in M that night and ordered it. I took it out into the mountains for an overnight and summit the next day and it did great - kept me warm overnight in cool temps and was great as my only layer the next day for a summit hike in 80 degree temps. The fabric is comfortable and wasn't scratchy or irritating at all (as some can be). Solid shirt.
