I think I've finally concluded my quest for a long sleeve base layer that is 1. comfortable 2. fits well 3. does not reek after consecutive days' use.
This has been my go-to long sleeve for nordic ski workouts, alone or under a thin shell or vest, running, or simply cold-weather commuting through Utah.
I also brought it along as my cold-weather layer on a bikepacking trip last summer during which it never smelled nor showed signs of wear.
I've found this top to retain its shape better than the tank top version, even though they're the same material. It's been perfectly warm to about 30 degrees alone, and down to about 10*, depending on layering system above it.
I'm 5'6", 140, 32D, and the medium fits really well as a base layer
