Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Fit: Runs small

I love Icebreaker, especially their more fit items. This jackets is very warm, a nice heavy weight fleece. The fleece napping is on the inside, which makes it even warmer by trapping air inside.

I'm returning the jacket because it runs short--especially the sleeves. The cut is also really boxy and square-ish. Not the fit I've come to expect from IB, but perhaps that fits someone else.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Fit: Runs large

I ordered this shirt after ordering a very similar goat tee and loving it. I am sooooo disappointed with the fit! Where is the QC?
I ordered a large, and you could fit a volleyball through the neck hole without stretching it. The body of the shirt fits somewhere between XL and XXL. So this shirt is for you if:
1. You have a head like a melon
2. You have a body that resembles a beer keg with arms
Come to think of it, BC should offer this in yellow with a black zig-zag stripe...apologies to Charles Schulz.

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

I have owned a lot of wool blend socks from various manufacturers, and these are my favorite. They are quality throughout, I love them for any day that is 70 degrees or less. After running these through the wringer, they hold up as well as any I've owned. The knit (warp and woof?) just seems to be tighter or more compact without contributing to bulk. I would definitely buy again, and I even sneak in the black color for the office on casual Fridays.

Merino wool is where it's at. I have the Quantum vest, which has a little more fitted cut than this hoodie. Still athletic, but without showing your nips to the world. The monkey thumbs on the sleeves are probably good if you have a 33"-34" sleeve. I'm 6"2', 185 lbs, 43" chest and 33" waist. The large fits me perfectly. I have 35" arms, so I just don't use the thumbholes.
This item is my new go-to midlayer, now I'm looking forward to Fall and Winter.

This is a perfect vest, sized just right for either midlayering or over a shirt. Note that the size runs on the snug side. I have a 43" chest, and got the large. I would call the fit "snug", but would probably be "compression" if it was an inch smaller. Love the athletic cut and the reflective stripes on the front.

What a great midweight sweater. Wear by itself or under a softshell, it's not too bulky or thin. The quality of the merino knit is great, and the fit even better. I would call it a little more "modern fit" than "relaxed", but it is not snug. I'm 6'2", 195 lbs. and the large fits great. I usually have trouble with sleeve length (35" in a dress shirt), but the sleeves on the sweater are perfect. Just ordered my second.
