I've bought several Icebreaker Ts over the past year. I really like the Bodyfit 200 Ts. They are a little warmer and more absorbent than the 150 Ts and look more substantial (more like heavy weight cotton) when worn casually. I love these Ts!

This shirt is my 3rd piece of Icebreaker clothing. My other pieces survived an AT thru-hike and are still worn nearly every day.
Icebreaker clothing lasts an incredibly long time and continues to look as good as the day I bought it. I've had this shirt for less time than my other pieces, but I'm sure it will perform just as well.
I'm 5'9" 115lbs and nothing "contour" is exactly skin tight on me, but this shirt comes very close and I like the look. I would definitely consider this an undershirt. I've worn it alone a few times, but I don't dress in skin tight clothes so it feels a bit awkward. I have a Bodyfit 260 longsleeve shirt I generally wear over it.
I wear this shirt just about every day of the week with 3-4 washes a month. I sleep in it, ride a bike to work, [work], ride a bike home, hang it up, take a shower, put it back on - ad infinitum.
Icebreaker is great - this shirt is great. Enjoy.

I'm 6' and 185lbs. I bought a large. It fits snug, but not tight. Just right for a base layer, but too snug to really wear on its own.
That said, a week or so ago I used this shirt without extra layers at the gym in the morning. It was so comfy and completely free of BO, that I decided to wear it all day. I kept it on to play volleyball that night. I'd soaked the shirt multiple times, but, amazingly enough, even after a fairly active 15 hour day, neither I nor it smelled bad at all. (Confirmed by my generally picky girlfriend. ;) )
Seams don't bother, even under multiple additional layers and a backpack.
Most comfortable merino anything I have yet to wear. I have worn several other brands, and the only one that even compares in comfort and fit is Arc'Teryx and that shirt is a solid 20-30 dollars more, depending on where you buy it. I am 6ft tall, 160 lbs, with a 28in waist and a medium fits me absolutely perfect. Don't think, just buy.
I have two of these that i picked up on SAC and they are the best merino shirts that I own! They definitely fit tight and are serve the purpose of a base layer or a muscle shirt hence the name Body Fit. I have always been a huge fan of merino wool and after experiencing the quality of Ice Breaker's gear I'm never looking back!
I'd read so many good reviews of Icebreaker wool shirts besting synthetics, I was expecting a lot. And it delivered. Wore this for 3 days while re-enacting a Mormon pioneer hand-cart trek in the middle of Wyoming. Kept me warm-ish when the winds and chill crept up, but when it was hot, it kept me just cool enough. Never stank. Did develop some salt stains, which I'm not used to. But that's probably because I've never been able to wear a shirt this long. The synthetics would smell so bad after one day, it was unthinkable to wear more than once. Being able to wear a shirt more than one day will alllow me to cut down on my base backpacking weight. So overall, I'm thrilled.
Ran 50k in this shirt in the Bighorn mountains in mid-June. It's a nicely snug fit (not too tight -- Mars size M, I'm 5'11 and 150#; BTW, agree with previous reviewer that it is a cardinal red, not like the photo), extremely comfortable. Never had a second thought about it, so you know it functions exactly as it should.
I wear a large in all my other icebreaker gear. This is sized a bit small.
Just got it in color "Mars". The actual color is not as bright as it looks in the picture, it's more like a "cardinal red".
I really like the fit and comfort of the shirt, but it could be just a bit longer. I am 5' 9", 145lbs, and the shirt could use another inch to keep
it from coming untucked. Other than that, great shirt.
Of the wool t-shirts I have purchased, this is the best. Great fit, very soft, and plenty long to not come untucked. Has many uses, plan on getting a couple more.
I bought this via SAC. This is a great great base layer, don't hesitate in purchasing via SAC's discounted price. At full price I only have one hesitation.
The shirt is a baselayer, as such it is supposed to fit snug, I don't know why the people complaining about sizing don't realize this. I'm a solid "Medium" shirt wearer, my entire closet is medium shirts from various companies, so I naturally purchased this in medium and it fits perfectly. Yes, it's snug, but it's supposed to be, its a base layer! If your looking for a generic short sleeve shirt then don't purchase a shirt designed as a base layer.
Now, my only hesitation and the reason for not giving it 5 stars. The labels. There are two at the neck collar, they are small and I can't feel them. BUT there are two tags on the hip side seam, they are rather large and the cut edge rubs against your skin and is quite irritating. The worst part is these labels are superfluous, one tells you the code to lookup the animal that your wool came from or some such thing, the other is care instructions. BOTH of which could have been printed onto the inner material itself. So now I have to figure out how to remove the labels without damaging the shirt. But once I do, I'll end up ordering like 5 more of these...
Great shirt. Very comfortable, wicks moisture pretty well, resists odor even after several uses. I didn't find it runs small, but it is cut to be form fitting. Highly recommended.
Nice shirt but super tight. Order a size up...
As with most Icebreaker shirts this one does not disappoint. Now I just want BC to get more colors in.
Fits well, great thickness for winter use and keeps shape well after washing. Does not smell bad either. My favourite when it is cold! Does not itch too bad, but i can feel it a little bit now and then. Pair it with a 150 or 200 in the summer, and a 260 and a fleece or primaloft in the winter, and you are well covered under your shell
I love this shirt. It fits my body well and provides an amazing base layer for almost any day. The wool repels odor, insulates well and breathes well. It's comfortable to wear all day (and my days are long.) One thing: it fits very close to the body. I like it, particularly as a base layer, but you may not. I wish they weren't so expensive and you do have to be careful when you wash them, but those are small sacrifices. I will be buying more of these because I basically wear one every day.
think this is a great shirt. very comfortable and functional. when it comes to sizing, i usually float between medium and large, definetly had to go with a large with this as the fit is somewhat snug. was a little scratchy at first, but after a couples washes was fine. great shirt.
I got this for my husband for running and biking. It does fit snug so if you're uncomfortable wearing close fit shirts then this isn't the shirt for you unless you order a size up. He really likes it, it keeps him cool when working out.
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.
