Patagonia ROCKS!

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

Great base layer. Does everything it supposed to. Fits nice, warm and very comfortable. Stitching all falls in nice location.

Durable, warm, light, and looks great!

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

After spending a couple years being sold on Smartwool and Icebreaker, and some of the Stoic merino shirts, I was happily surprised to see Patagonia manufacturing merino shirts. I love the brand, their commitment to the enviroment, and the ideals behind their design philosophy.

The merino wool is supremely soft... not coarse at all. Its fairly durable compared to a few of my others that have developed holes from leaning back against logs or granite. The blue color is absolutely awesome and looks great. Won't smell after a week in the backcountry... thanks to merino's antibacterial properties.

All in all... the best looking, most comfortable, and most durable of all my merino shirts. The only downside is Patagonia's insistence on printing their logo in ink directly on the inside back of the shirt... which leads to a fairly noticeable black smear between your shoulders blades. Not a big deal in the grand scheme of things.

I'm 6'2" and 160 lbs and have long arms... and the large fits me very well.

Exceptional and different

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I absolutely love Merino Wool baselayers and wear them as regular sweaters much of the time. Toasty warm but they don't make you sweat--what more could you ask for on a cold day? My only complaint is that there is not enough Winter weather to wear them in in OK.... Great buy if you get them on sale; they are expensive! I got the Pearson stripe/Forge Grey because it's rather unique. Well worth the cost, IMHO.

Rad Baselayer

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

- Stretchy
- Comfortable
- Breathes well
- Dries fast
- Doesn't smell
- Comes in orange
- Looks rad

- Expensive

In terms of performance, this thing easily gets five stars. As for the bang for our buck, I'd give it a three or four. Definitely worth investing in if you're going to get some mileage out of it, but there are similar, cheaper options out there.

Super Layer

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Picked this up for cold weather 'only layer' Ultimate Frisbee games. Had a chance to use it during a recent backpacking trip where it dropped from 80+ to 45 degrees in a few hours. With only one more layer and a thin shell, I stayed toasty. It's so comfortable that it's one of the first things that gets pulled from the drawer. Stink factor - wash before you wear - and it'll serve you well.

Favorite Baselayer

The best baselayer I have ever used so far. Lightweight enough to breathe well when working hard, but still keeps you warm when you stop. Fit is excellent and it is super comfortable. The best feature of all is that it doesn't smell! Wore it for a week and a half straight on a trip, and climbed hard every day. By the end I barely smelt, while if I was in capilene or another synthetic baselayer, I would have been pretty rank.

The price is pretty hard to swallow, but if you can find it on sale like I did, it will pay for itself with the number of times you can use it.
