Have owned many Icebreaker shirts over the years and this is my favorite for warm weather activities. The material is softer and cooler than the 100% wool shirts. No stink after multiple wearings.

I have lots of wool icebreaker shirts which I like, so I thought I would give this new material a shakedown for extremely warm crossfit workouts (100 degrees plus). The material is definitely cooler. The shirt does not seem to fit quite as well, the collar doesn't seem to lay down well. But this material is cooler than the 100% wool shirts from icebreaker. It also seems like this material will last longer (all the wool shirts that I have eventually develop little holes in them both icebreaker and smartwool). Stink resistance seems to be the same. Overall, I really like it for very warm weather. Itchiness is about the same as wool. Fit is about the same as the icebreaker tech t lite shirts.

I really like these shorts. I have the convertible version, which I use for hiking and backpacking and these shorts are even better than the convertible shorts. They fit a little slimmer and are just the right length (just below my knee). The stretchy fabric is very comfortable. The fabric is a little warm but that is really the only negative for me. I wore them yesterday in 111 degree weather, so I guess they aren't too warm.
