Great casual shirt

Can't say enough good things about this shirt. Comfortable, cool in warm weather, high quality, very nice fit. I want one in every color for casual wear and to work out. Love it!

  • Fit: True to size

Icebreaker did a fit adjust on the classic Tech T Lite and I love it! They lengthened the sleeves and the torso. Also the front is now logo-free.

Variety of uses

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I have lots of Merino long underwear, but this is my first short sleeve Merino shirt. I have been wearing it as my first layer for skiing/touring and it has been a great addition to my layering system. It breathes better and dries faster than a cotton layer and it allows me more flexibility with layering my long sleeve/jacket layers. My only slight negative is the length - as someone with a short torso - even the Small size is really long on me - but for using as a base layer it works fine since I am tucking it in anyway.
Hopefully the length won't be an issue when I transition this shirt into my summer hiking/running wardrobe.

Too wool for school!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

As my first wool item of clothing, I didnt know what to expect. I'm from Florida, where I assumed I would never have the weather that would require wool layers. I tried this out during a visit to South Florida during 85 degree weather, and I was surprisingly cool and comfortable in this shirt! and I like the longer length and the fit in the chest and shoulders. I'm 5'6", 125 lbs, a B-cup, and the small fits perfectly! The blue color is really pretty! I only wash on gentle cycle and hang to dry, and so far the shirt has maintained shape and fabric feel, although it got a little more rough to the touch after a couple washes.

Great even in 90F heat!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I have this shirt in a pale purple and I love it. It's soft and comfortable, the wool isn't scratchy and the cut is simple and classic. The length is great, and it looks good with a sports bra or a regular bra too.
I brought this shirt to Honduras wanting to test out the 'warm when it's cold, cool when it's hot' . The temperatures there were in the 40s celsius (100+F) plus humidity, you couldn't go outside without dripping in sweat. So needless to say this wasn't my go to shirt during the day (bikinis only!), but when things cooled down to around 30 celsius (90F) I wore this and was perfeclty comfortable. Very impressed, so I'm getting another! I'm 5'3 120lbs and have a small.

Wicks well, shows how well it's wicking

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs large

I have this shirt in "vivid". It's washed up well and has held it's shape. I like the long fit, I probably should have bought a medium instead of a large (so I'd say it's pretty kind on the sizing).

It wicks well, but isn't the most flattering... The vivid color does really show the sweat (dark patches) so I generally ditch it first thing after a ride (I don't mind some small sweat patches, but when it makes you look like you're sopping in it, it's not my favorite).

Perfect until you wash it.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I loved this shirt. It fit perfect. The fabric is super nice. After I washed it, the collar and hem around the sleeves got all mangled. It is still tolerable, but now it is just another shirt.

Everyday Wear

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small

I've actually had a couple of these tech tee's now, and I always end up wearing them until they can't be worn any longer. They seem to hold up through anything I put them through, whether it's snowboarding, hiking, cleaning my house, or walking my dog, this is a piece that is so versatile and I can recommend it to anyone and everyone.

Normally a medium, prefer a large in this piece.
I'm about 5'5" 125lbs, so hopefully this gives you a good idea of what size you'd need.
