I've done a lot of research with regards to merino wool and all of the benefits. The only thing that made me hesitant in buying right away were the prices of merino wool products. I am sure most people have this same hesitance.

I finally decided to take the plunge and buy the Icebreaker BodyFit 200 Oasis Crew, and I cannot be happier! Everything that I have read about merino wool was true. Excellent wicking properties, no order after heavy use and smooth and not itchy on the skin! I got this in late Spring and with the warmer than normal weather the Chicago area was getting this year my rides usually started at about 62 F degrees and would end at about 75-80 F degrees. I can honestly say that even at temps around 75-80 F degrees I was still quite comfortable and I was wearing the long sleeves.

In terms of fit I prefer a tighter fit for my base layers. I am 6'1" and way about 210 lbs. My body type would be consider "athletic". My chest measurement is about 42-43 with broad shoulders. I order the Large and the fit is just as I wanted. Tight fit...skin tight to be more exact but not restricting by any means. The fabric is very breathable and giving.

I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a merino wool base layer for a fair price. Plus Icebreaker is a great company who is responsible corporate citizen.
