My body lives in Middle Georgia, but my mind resides in the Rockies
It sure does! It has a single pull drawstring.
True to size - Im a 13, and that size fits perfectly with a thick sock.
I'm 6'5", 190 lbs and this shirt fits great in size large. I would go with a capilene for working out, but for car camping/playing around outside this shirt is perfect. The material is really comfortable and it doesn't stink up. Unfortunately it will still smell like smoke after being around a campfire but such is life! Great logo, fit and material.
I think this logo is cursed - I had the old cotton version of this shirt is the yellow colorway, and after one wash it shrunk so wonky that it was more comfortable to wear backwards! When I saw they came out with a new version I ordered it straight away. The shirt itself is great - long, fits great, comfortable material. It's too bad the logo is misapplied and therefore is STILL WONKY! Hopefully the entire run isn't bad, but I was burned 2x on this one. Won't get fooled again.
Got these and loved them from the start. First of all, they are super comfy. I wear them to work because they breathe well and have just enough style. I think the height on the socks is perfect for trail running - short enough so you don't notice them, long enough to keep your ankles from getting scratched up. They are my go-to trail running socks now (over my Smartwools) and they have been holding up nicely. I hope they make more colors next year - I would definitely buy again.
So, I have been using this shirt for about a week (I have two and have used & laundered both), but haven't truly put it through the paces until this morning. I did the Crossfit workout "Murph", which lasted just under an hour and let me experience the pro's and con's of the Breathe 90 material.
My recurring thought is that the material is fairly analogous to merino, but lighter. The lightness of the shirt can't be overstated. It's a "barely there" material that feels great and is really smooth. Similar to merino, it breathes well until the point of saturation, then simply "holds" moisture and becomes heavy/ceases to breathe. In fact, it became so saturated this morning that I removed the shirt until the workout was over due to the "heaviness" of the garment.
As to fit, I'm 6'5" and 200lbs and the shirt fits perfectly, slim but not formfitting. I especially like the little bit of extra length in back for when I'm riding my bike.
For me, nothing on the market can beat Patagonia's Capilene 1 material for wicking performance. I have used them in the heat and humidity of GA summers and they continually perform like a champ. The only downside is in the cost of a capilene garment. That is where the Stoic Breathe shirt kills it - if you find it on sale/SAC, it's a deal you can't pass up.
So, for the TLDR'ers out there:
PROs - extremely light, great fit, price is right, works well for many different applications
CONs - reaches sweat saturation fairly quickly (YMMV)
Good job Stoic!
So i lusted for this jacket for quite a while. I wanted the Arc'teryx Atom LT but the price was too much - and I went w/ the Thermawrap BC after getting a deal. Plus, the orange is an awesome color and looks even better in person. I agree w/ the below reviewers on two main points: 1) the fit is not as advertised and 2) the stretchy material at the sleeves and sides degrades fairly quickly. I ended up sending this back and going with the Atom LT, as I should have done in the first place.
For reference, I am a lean 6'5", 190 lbs, and the Atom LT fits like a second skin.
So I am currently using the 12 in version to keep my pants out of my bike chain. Just one of the many daily uses I get outta this piece of gear. Keep it on you at all times, and you will continue to find uses for it. Good, solid stuff.
Ideally, this strap would have a TINY bit more elasticity, but I'm guessing that would compromise it's strength, which is substantial. So that's why only 4 stars, but at this price w/ so many uses, you shouldn't hesitate to purchase.
Yeah dude, this fits nothing like the Nano Puff. It's both longer and trimmer fitting, a true "slim" fit.
Nice drop tail... just a sick jacket! The herringbone pattern is really nice esp in white.
This fit on this jacket is amazing... I'm 6'5", 200 #s, lean, and as you can see the vapor fits beautifully in a size L. I only have on a t-shirt in this picture, but there is more than enough room for several layers. Incredible cut/design from Westcomb.
Three reasons this garment is worth the price:
1. No stink - you could wear this for a few weeks and never know it didn't come right out of the laundry.
2. The fit - nice and tight, very performance oriented cut. It looks great under a button down and all by itself. You get so much value out of this shirt because you can wear it with anything, rock it just with jeans, or lounge around in it at home. Plus, since you don't have to wait for it to make it out of the hamper, you get that much more wear out of it. Hands-down a terrific value.
3. The length - nice and long, even on me (I'm 6'5"). Long enough that I can tuck it in and it will stay put. Also, when I wear the shirt by itself, I don't have to worry about it coming up too short.
It easy to see why these have almost sold out. One last thought - even though it's a thin, fine grade of wool, it's very warm and will keep you toasty even by itself.
The only reason why I do not give 5 stars is becuase my shirt was mis-sewn - the seams are not symmetrical and it bugs the hell out of me. It just wears funny, plus it doesn't look as nice.
Great job Icebreaker!
Size up... I wear large in most everything and the Montane jacket I own fits very trim in XL.
31.5 in. - the sizing chart is right over the add to cart button.
Nope, it fits like a normal crew-collar shirt, nice and cozy.

It's not sold on Backcountry.com, but check out Mountain Equipment Co-op's (MEC, the Canadian REI) Slipstream Hoodie. Made out of Windpro, it's nice and long and super warm. Just don't put it in the dryer!
How is the length on this top - nice and long like the BC.com t-shirts?
