I bought this short-sleeved shirt as a next-to-skin base layer for downhill skiing. I was attracted to it because of the snug fit and wear it under an older Bodyfit 260, which I wear all of the time even when not skiing.
Its snug so it feels warmer than its light weight suggests.
The lack of bulk allows it to layer nicely under just about any other second layer.
The neck is snug, but not too much...I wonder if Icebreaker made some changes here because earlier comments suggested the neck was a little loose and this one is definitely not too loose.
Its Icebreaker merino wool so its comfy and resists body odor.
Backcountrys free shipping got it here in 4 days.
While its designed to fit snugly, it also runs a bit small and I think most buyers would want to move up a size beyond what they normally wear. Im 510, 160 pounds and usually wear smaller mediums or larger smalls. If I get another one of these, it will be a large, a size I never wear.
Irritating small stuff...literallythe care tag had such a stiff edge, I borrowed a seam ripper from my girlfriend and very carefully cut out the stitching that held it in place.
