Familiarity: I've used it several times

If you're not super fit with rock-hard abs, this might not be the shirt for you. I'm 5'10" and 154# and normally wear a M-L shirt size. Though I don't really exercise much, you can see I'm definitely not overweight. Yet, if I only wear this shirt (I got the M), I look like a side of bacon. The shirt clings to every square inch of you which is great as an insulator, but may also turn heads -- and not in a good way. Sleeve length though is perfect! All that said, I wear it exclusively as a base layer and LOVE it! I've only had it a few months now - it's only just come from it's third washing, but so far I'm pretty happy with it. It was generally soft out of the package and, as some have said, it does indeed get a little softer with each wash. The 150 has a a very good insulative ability and is perfect for fall/spring everyday wear. Even with temps well into the 70's I never get too hot. Finally, the rumors about odor control oddly enough seem to be true. To protect it from multiple washings, I've strangely worn it as many as four times between washes -- something I'd never even consider with a smelly cotton shirt. I suppose if I had to, I'm sure I could wear it even more and get away with it, but the thought of wearing the same shirt that much makes me a little queazy regardless of how good it smells.

The 200 has a fantastic insulative ability and is perfect for fall/winter everyday wear. I never get too hot or too cold. Finally, the rumors about odor control seem to also be true.

I haven't had my SmartWool Crew very long. It's only just come from it's third washing, but so far I'm pretty happy with it. It was generally soft out of the package and, as some have said, it does indeed get a little softer with each wash. Since this is a crew, don't go looking for an insulative wow factor, though it is a tad warmer than your basic tee. Sizing seemed to be right on. I usually wear a M-L, got the M and haven't been disappointed at all. Finally, the rumors about odor control seem to also be true. To protect it from multiple washings, I've strangely worn it as many as four times between washes -- something I'd never even consider with a smelly cotton shirt which is worn only once before it hits the suds!
