I bought this product for when I run or exercise in cool weather. I like the feel of the wool much better than the plastic wicking products. Wicking ability is just short to on par with the likes of under armor and similar products. It will get wet under heavy sweating but it's a far cry from the soggy wet of cotton. This heavier version does a nice job of insulating even with a mild breeze and allows me to go without a light jacket or sweatshirt. For me, the fit is snug and the sleeves are long which personally I prefer. It also does not stink as bad as the plastic wicking clothes which is a plus.
On the minus side, it is on the expensive side and wool tends not to hold up as well under washing. So far so good though but time will tell. Then neck seemed a little smaller/tighter than it needed to be and I find that I often stretch the fabric by the neck a bit when taking it on and off.
In summary, it is a very good product that I am happy to use and I would recommend to others.
I'm about 6' tall and 195 lbs
