Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Just received my commute jacket in XL. I am 6'4" 210 and it fits perfectly. Long in arms and torso not to short. High quality and high finish as in all icebreaker. It's dressy enough to wear a collared shirt and trousers to the office if needed. I only wish it had a small chest pocket as that seems best for the I phone. Well done icebreaker and thanks for the generous discount!

Wanted so badly for these to work but they don't fit my body. I'm 6'-4, 210 and the XL cut is just not right and they were a bit short. I would agree with some of the previous reviews that the BC pant is not as stretchy as the description might indicate. I have the FlyLow "stash"pant in an XL and love them from both a fit and performance standpoint. Seems the stash has a longer drop and a longer inseam which is ideal for my tele-fun.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

Just received the my wollies zip T and holy cow the XL is it tight fitting. I'm 6'4" 207 lbs and it fits skin tight. Not binding because the wool moves but skin tight. I'm sending it back and headed back to Patagonia merino wool as the Patagonia XL cut is amore comfortable fit for me.

Mark, Thanks for your thoughts and guidance as that makes me lean toward Gotama. Any thoughts / experience / preference on Gotama vs. Salo Rocker 2 108?

Thanks in advance.

Trying to decide between Gotama or Shiro for Colorado skiing? My objective: To supplement my current tele, quiver (Salomon Sentinel) with a more front side powder day oriented ski, yet still have mid day post morning powder, skied off carvability! Thoughts/guidance anyone?

I now have two (2) of these and they are becoming my favorite casual T shirt. I prefer the 150 weight particularly during the summer as the 200 weight is a bit heavy for me. Sweat all you want and it won't get musky. Wash cold and hang to dry. I am 6'4" 208 lbs and the large fits just fine for casual wear. My only wish is that Backcountry/Icebreaker had a few more colors available in Large.

I just recieved and skied in my new "Chapter" this weekend at Mary Jane after having returned my Seam and thought the price would not indicate I personally believe the Chapter is an upgrade. The venting design, especially the front, in the Chapter may work more efficiently as I was constantly too warm in the Seam. I will potentially add the final star as I get more days/experience with the Chapter. Enjoy.

Recently got my first pair of these babies and they are top notch. They span the spectrum of utility as I've used them as a base layer for alpine skiing and under my suit pants for work. They deliver comfort and breathability in both realms. I'm 6'5" 215 and went with the XL based on reviews and the waist band is a touch loose to be picky. My next pair will probably be a large. I have multiple pairs of patagonia boxer briefs and the IO Bios are more comfortable and don't ride to high in the saddle.

Great design, high quality, great detail... have been using for spring skiing as well some recent chilly early morning bike rides and the warmth, breathability and wind resistence is right on. It's a very snug fit. I'm 6'4" 210 and had to go with an XXL. XL would have been good for cycling but I wanted to be able to layer a vest for skiing. My only complaint is that it does absorb perspiration and stinks if I sweat in it.

Have had this for a month now and am very impressed with my first Norrona purchase. I'm 6'4" 215 and the XL athletic cut fits great. The unique texture of the fleece is pretty cool. This jacket has plenty long sleeves and is cut longer at waist which is good for us tall folks. Jacket is definitely warm and should insulate well under a shell for cold ski days.
