Description

Merino brings the heat and breathes like a champ.

With super-smooth fabric that breathes better than a pro cyclist at sea level, the Stoic Men's Merino 200 Crew serves as a baselayer for every season. Midweight merino wool and a close-to-skin fit helps retain your core warmth while still providing some room for additional layering underneath. After a week of running, ski touring, or backpacking, this shirt won't smell like a foot because merino naturally resists accumulating odors, even if you sweat like a pig.

Affordable merino wool

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

Great price on merino wool as it is significantly cheaper than smart wool 250 shirts. A smart wool 250 shirt is a little softer probably due to thicker material as we are talking 200 (Stoic) vs 250. I personally like the 200 range as it is much more durable then a thin weight smart wool 150 and runs cooler than 250. Love that the sleeves can go around your hand as it eliminates the need of gloves in certain conditions. Also has a nice tapered fit with back side coming down further than the front.

Keeps the stink down

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

I have worked my butt off in high altitudes while wearing this base layer and LOVE the performance I'm getting! It's light, warm, breathable, everything you need from a technical layer to keep the stink down while working up a sweat thanks to the merino wool blend. I'm 6'2" 178lbs and the Large is a perfect fit. Love the thumb loops.

Breathable, doesn't stink, athletic fit

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

This shirt breathes well, doesn't stink, can add heat if you layer with it, and is at the right price.

Great all year round top

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

One of very few tops i can wear to keep warm in the winter, wear to keep cool in the summer and wear it running on multiple days without it starting to smell. The perfect backcountry or training top on a trip where you can't take the time out to wash all your clothes all the time . Recommend very highly.

Great

  • Gender: Male

I'm a big fan of these. I've got them in the medium for next to skin base layer and large for layering or as a looser shirt. Very good moisture management and you can wear multiple times without having to wash. The sleeves are long which work very well for me. I'm 6"1' 175lbs long torso and arms, slim/athletic build, the medium is snug and the large fits loose enough you can layer under it but tight enough to layer over.

not very soft

nice color/style but it was not very soft. Smartwool and Icebreaker is much better.

loving it

wore it a month ago for 2 days of skiing, it was about 20 degrees F each day. the shirt was warm enough for me, it was a snug fit. Not itchy, wicks away moisture pretty well. After all day skiing, the shirt was dry on the front, and the back was a little wet. Stitching is excellent.

small and itchy

runs quite small. did shrink in wash and it itched. kinda disappointed.

Very good baselayer

I get it with a very good discount from backcountry, merino wool is very light and breathable. The look of the shirt is really nice, a little thinner than I was expecting but it is not and issue. Good cost benefit

Not as good as Icebreaker - why same $ ?

  • Gender: Male

I'm disappointed that the Stoic stuff (weird colors and all) are now being priced on par with Icebreaker clothing (both are $79 for 200 weight). They are not equivalent. For one thing, the stitching on Stoic stuff is clearly inferior. I remember when Backcountry brand stuff was shooting for similar quality at a noticeably lower price. Seems those days are over. I'll stick with Icebreaker and their higher quality product.

Excellent, wish it was thicker

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Merino wool over synthetic for a long sleeve is the only way to go. The only problem is that it seems to be the same thickness as their Stoic Merino T-Shirts. I would like to see the long sleeve a bit thicker.

Agree that the 200's are a bit thin to really be 200's. On the other hand, if BC gear mavens have it right, the underlying wool is 17.5 gauge, which I think is warmer for its weight, and is definitely more comfortable. (Specs on 150's say they're 17.5, no similar specs on 200's, but BC says they're also 17.5). (200 is some kind of measure of the fabric weight, like 200 gms per square meter of fabric- but I'm not sure that's exactly it. In any case, the 200 fabric doesn't seem 1 1/3 times as heavy as the Stoic 150, but I'm unable to weigh it directly).

The previous backcountry.com Merinos were made of a finer Merino. I still own some of them and they are definitely superior. These new stoics are more rash to the touch, because they obviously use coarser thread. If the current ones are indeed 17.5 micron, then the older ones must have been sub 17 micron. I suppose because of cost cutting backcountry went for cheaper materials, a sad thing in my opinion.Still, these stoics are nice and warm enough if you get the right weight for your activity.

Nice base layer

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

This is my first time trying Merino wool. I was expecting it to be thicker (not having anything to judge 200 weight by, previously). Seems to be good quality, though.

Thumb holes are awesome when pulling on the next layer and the extra length in the arms provides nice additional coverage onto your hands...but the extra arm length can be ackward at times. Not a deal breaker, by any means, though!

Seems best suited for base layer during aerobic activities, due to breathability (little to no wind protection) and thinness. Also, good for sleeping in. I wore it every night to bed for a week straight and it didn't even start to stink. It was very comfortable, too! Every once in awhile you feel a slight roughness or poke, but I like that natural feel about it. Not itchy.

Ordered 2, but will probably send the second one back, just because I need something thicker, most of the time.

It was washed once and has been on my husband ever since. He loves the feels, the extra length in the sleeve and the warmth.

Perfect

Wore this shirt a few weeks ago on the AT. Preformed great. Kept me warm hiking in 35 plus degree weather. Drys fast enough to wear as a base layer for sleeping at night as well. Thumb holes are cool also. Keeps hand Warmers nice and snug in your hands.

Perfect!

After buying a couple of these for baselayers I find myself wanting to live in them! The more you wash it the softer it gets (it does suggest to wash often). This is the most comfortable and warm baselayer I have tried out, and the thumbholes make it even that much better. I will be purchasing more! It wicks away the moisture and coming from a guy who sweats A LOT it stays dry and stink free! Stoic nailed it on this one!
