Ever since I visited New Zealand (well, lived there for a while morelike), I've been a total Merino wool convert, and Icebreaker makes some of the finest merino clothing around. Regulates temperature and moisture superbly, never stinks (NEVER- Sir Peter Blake, the renowned sailor, wore two pairs of Icebreaker underwear for his 180-day sailing trip around the world, and never washed them), and it is amazingly comfortable and itch-free. Any piece you can get is highly recommended- I wore the silkweight T for a weeklong backpacking trip on the AT this summer during a record heat wave (100+ heat index) and it performed incredibly. Pick this up today.

Recently wore the Chugach 3D on a wet, intensely unpleasant (weather-wise at least) day in the woods at about 33 degrees, and it performed beautifully. Dried quickly, kept me warm even when damp throughout, and very comfortable. The interior fleecy lining of the pockets is a nice touch, and it doesn't feel too bulky. I even used it (in the included stuff sack) as a pillow that night, though it is a little tall for such a use. I've worn it pretty much continually this winter (whenever the thermometer dips below about 45 degrees), replacing my old cotton hoody. Would recommend it wholeheartedly.
