Description

Functional comfort, minus the synthetic funk factor.

With its soft, naturally odor-resistant 17.5-micron Merino wool knit and \\275 neck zip, the Stoic Merino Bliss 150 Shirt covers you in functional comfort, minus the synthetic funk factor. Stoic made this next-to-skin top with ridiculously comfortable New Zealand Merino, rub-reducing flat-locked seams and side panels, and a body-heat venting \\275 chest zip so you can blow off some steam after a mean summit push or a tricky boulder problem. Merino wool transfers moisture while your sweat is in its primary vapor form, so unlike most synthetic fabrics the Merino Bliss Shirt begins to pull moisture away from your body before your shirt becomes saturated. And since wet usually means cold in the backcountry, warm Merino is the way to go. Stash your lip balm, energy gel, or other small items in the Bliss Top's zippered chest pocket for safe keeping while you're on the go. A reflective logo hit on the Merino Bliss Top's collar ensures a little more safety during your evening runs, and the thumbholes at the cuffs take the bunch out of layering.

Decent layer, not well built

Decent base layer, but it tore withing 3 days of use. Small tear near the waste line, disappointing for it to wear out so quickly.

Solid shirt

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

Solid shirt for skiing or skinning.

Great Shirts

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

I bought a 200 series a while back, and loved it. Upon seeing new colors, I picked up two of the 150 series. These shirts are great. You can wear them multiple times without having to worry about them smelling funky. I've worn them as a snowboarding baselayer, to work, around town, and on the plane. The chest pocket is perfect for an small ipod and the thumbholes keep it from bunching up when putting on a tighter jacket or sweatshirt. If you're looking for a warm, comfortable shirt, then look no further. Steepandcheap has these on sale quite often.

I'm 5'10", 180lbs, 41" chest, 33" waist and a large fits like a well-tailored dress shirt.

Quality merino!

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

Stoic puts out a quality product in the Merino Bliss 150. The quality and feel of the wool is on part with other brands of higher price. Considering you can find these on Department of Goods in the neighborhood of $20 makes these things an unbeatable value! I've picked up quite a few of these over the last year due to their quality/value.

Fit is appropriate to size, and a nice athletic fit keeps things tidy. See the sizing chart and match your measurements accordingly. You can then order with confidence and piece of mind.

Feature set is pretty limited (as it should be) but I'd like to see a thumb loop on the sleeves. When throwing on a fleece lined shell the sleeves are prone to ride up.

Great Fit and Super Useful

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

I started using this shirt a month ago in the New England area and it has worked wonders. It is a great base layer for the cold with a fleece or down coat over it. The high neck is great when I am wearing my down jacket which has a smaller, less protective collar. The long zipper is solid for dumping heat quickly and the thumb holes make for a tight, trim fit down past the wrist. I am 6'3'', 215 lbs and the XL has a tight, but athletic fit.

Too Baggy.

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs large

The quality of this shirt was great, and I really wanted to like it and keep it, but the shirt fit really sloppy, and looked too long and baggy for me to keep. I'm 5'9" 138 lbs. with a 38" chest, and thus a medium should have fit me perfectly, but it didn't. Back to my endless search for a good fall merino hiking shirt.

Responded on

Stavros, Sorry, you ordered the wrong size. 36-38 is still a Small. 38-40 would only be a Medium in Athletic or Euro fit shirts. Have Backcountry send you a Small. I can almost guarantee the shirt will fit you. I have the other problem, but I'll have to make do with a XXL (Losing weight, so the XXL will fit in < 2 months)and hope you were correct when you said the shirt ran large....

Responded on

I just got the Stoic shirt 2 days ago & have been wearing it since. it fits great! Stavros, You are correct - It runs large. Order the Small, and you'll be golden...

Well Worth the Money

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

I've been wearing this shirt, and the short sleeved versions, for quite a while now. Several cold, wet and snowy seasons here in Alaska. I mainly use it for daily bike commuting, hiking and camping. I bike most days in the fall and a lot in winter and it is always comfy, doesn't stink and a small fits me well. (I'm 5'8" and 145lbs) I've owned lots of wooly shirts from all the major brands and the Stoic shirts have stayed in use the longest without getting holes or stinking. I also like the thumb holes and the longer sleeves for keeping crap from getting up my arm.
One recommendation would be to use some of the special wool wash occasionally as all my wool shirts, these included, eventually do get a little rough or scratchy. Otherwise I wash them with the regular laundry.
Well worth the money and generally way cheaper than Icebreaker, Ibis etc...

The Best Shirt Period

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

This shirt gets it right. Good neck coverage, deep zipper for dumping heat, chest pocket for gu/chapstick/topo etc, thumb loops (!!!) and enough length to stay put. With the deep zipper and ability to roll the sleves up, this thing can be every bit as cool as a T shirt and if you throw a 4oz windbreaker (ala patagucci houdini or rab cirrus or arcteryx squamish) over the top of it, the system can get you through some seriously gnarly weather. Stoic's wool quality is top notch (as good as ibex, smartwool, icebreaker...yes, I have them all) and while sometimes the company suffers from fit/construction probelms, these shirts are absolutely dialed in. I have three of them and wear them every time I'm hiking/climbing/skiing. Buy a few, get off your computer and get outside! I'm 42" chest, 34" arms, 33" waist and wear a large.

Highly recommended

I find the 150 a perfect weight for layering. It is fairly thin and light - not bulky at all. It is also great as an single layer if you are active in not-so-cold temps of freezing and above. The merino wool also holds true to its reputation as a low (I can't ever say no) stink fabric. I can wear it several days on a backpack trip and not gross myself out. I also like this model with the partial zip and the the zip pocket on the chest. Great all-around top for cool weather.

Go for it

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Very thin but warm. I didn't want a heavy wool shirt. Soft feel.
Zip neck and a mini pocket are useful features.
Hope it lasts a couple of years.

I paid less money than listed.

Pretty Solid item

I've used this several times, it's definitely a good product for the price. I always air dry it after washing, it's super soft, keeps me pretty warm and is more durable than expected. It fits very well, I'd say slightly looser than an athletic fit. I've used it as a midlayer under a shell and as my outerlayer. It's worked fine for both depending on the temps. I like how as the day gets hotter it doesn't keep me too warm, almost like it adjusts as the temp changes. With other similar weight items I'd have to strip them a lot sooner in my hike. I highly recommend this.

Decent Base Layer

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have been using this as a base layer for snowshoeing and mountaineering. Overall it's a great piece. It is light weight, wicks moisture well and provides enough warmth when paired with a fleece. My only complaint is the durability. I have patches of holes throughout on the back, arms, etc.

My New Favorite Shirt

Just like the title says I love these shirts. I now have two. I wore one on a short hike the other day. The temperature was probably about 45 or 50 degrees and I was comfortable. I wear a L and I am about 6' 2".

Amazing!

Warm when wet and does not smell, that's all that needs to be said. Fits me a little weird but whatever I wear this every time I go ski touring and will purchase many more.

Merino is Awesome

I was late to discover merino, but will probably never go synthetic again for an active baselayer. I use this shirt primarily for skinning, mostly short 1500' climbs but also a 4000' climb up a 14er where I was sweating buckets. Absolutely no smell, and wicked away enough sweat to keep warm when I stopped moving at the top. Will buy additional next season, its hard to beat the price and quality of Stoic.

Great At Everything

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is just like the description. Excellent true to size fit, warm, super breathing and NO synthetic stink! Has become favorite next to skin piece.

Love it.

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

Wonderful! The wool is great for layering & it does a good job of keeping you warm. Fit is great. Stitch is great. Thumb holes are great. Zipper pocket & collar are great. The wool can be itchy at times, but after a good wash using Nikwax Wool Wash, it comes out softer than when I received it. This thing wicks moisture like a boss too. Extremely happy with purchase, I'll most definitely end up buying another once this one expires.
