    No Stink!!!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Small
    • Height: 5'7"
    • Weight: 135lbs

    This is an amazing shirt! It's comfort, fits well, looks good, and can be used in town or on the trail. Great for hot summer days or a winter base-layer. The best part is the shirt doesn't stink, even after a long hike or heavy workout!

    Summer Wool ≠ Oxymoron

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small

    I've long worn Merino for winter activities. The Sphere has introduced Merino to my summer wardrobe as well. It is as cool as a cotton tee without retaining moisture when the desert sun sets. And of course, it beats any synthetic antimicrobial treatment by Day 2 or 3.

    For my slimmer build, it feels neither baggy nor skin-tight.

    Welcome to Thunderdome

    Wear this shirt in a post-apocalyptic battle dome. Or wear it to the gym. Or biking, or hiking, or climbing, or running, or (insert activity here). The point is that these shirts are well constructed, versatile, excellent at moisture management, and pretty comfy. I am generally not a huge fan of the feel of wool apparel, but the tencel blend in these makes them less itchy and more comfortable than a lot of the merino product on the market. Plus the benefits of merino far outweigh the occasional itch caused by the fabric.

    Great active wear tee

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

    • Weight: 130lbs

    This is my first experience with a Merino wool blend shirt from Icebreaker. The Cool-Lite blend (52% Merino wool, 35% TENCEL) shirt is excellent blend of moisture wicking, light weight, and breathability for any warm weather activities. I've used the shirt hiking, working out at the gym, biking, and just as a casual tee and it performs well in each scenario. I find the fit to be a relaxed true to size fit. The Cool-Lite blend does not seem to be quite as breathable as 100% Merino, but the added benefits of the TENCEL keep the shirt light and very soft. Additionally, like most Merino apparel, there is little to no noticeable odor after multiple days of prolonged use between washes.

    Cool-Lite great for warm weather running

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    • Size Bought: Small
    • Height: 5'8"
    • Weight: 145lbs

    I own a lot of Icebreaker apparel and the Merino wool blend shirts like this Cool-Lite (52% Merino wool, 35% TENCEL) shirt are my favorite for warm weather activity (running, bootcamp) because it's very soft on the skin and doesn't stink. The current colors are a bit dull, which is the only negative.

    Stay Fresh in This Versatile Shirt!

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

    My very first time wearing this shirt I put it through the test. Although I was sweaty and hot, the Icebreaker Sphere breathed great, kept me cool and dry, and best of all, my wife didn't say I stunk afterwards ;). I have since worn the shirt out at night, as it's a great fit and very comfortable, and taken it out for a run before it's first wash! Can honestly say I've never had a shirt stay so fresh. It's great because I won't wash it as much, reducing it's footprint compared to other shirts I own. A great product that I'd recommend.

    Best shirt for any physical activity

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 165lbs

    This is a great shirt for wicking moisture away from your body during activity! You can use it year round for anything. Very nice style and fit is great.

    Great workout T

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 180lbs

    Very impressed with this t-shirt. It's got a great (soft) hand-feel, wicks moisture really well and kept my temperature constant - at no points of my workout (whether running, rowing, weight training, etc.) have I "noticed" this shirt except when I look in the mirror and think - "Hey! That's a good looking shirt" :)

    Wicks well, runs large

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: L
    • Height: 6'2"
    • Weight: 205lbs

    Great for warm weather exercise... wicked well and didn't feel clammy when sweaty. Runs large... I’m 6’2” and 205# and the L was a bit long and loose. Not sure yet if they shrink.

    What you’re looking for..

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XL
    • Height: 6'3"
    • Weight: 185lbs

    If you feel like you’re in the market for some high end wool workout gear you’ve landed in the right spot.
    Unfortunately I haven’t put this thing to the test in warmer weather, but I have no reason to think it won’t hold up and perform exceptionally well!

    Icebreaker sphere boot camp awesome

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'11"

    This shirt was great for the workout. It was very comfortable and lightweight, and unlike other shirts and materials it did not stick to your skin once you get sweaty and working hard. Great wicking and cooling properties and I would wear it, buy it and recommend to all my friends. Awesome product thanks.

    Didn't want to take it off.

    I wore this shirt for 3 days straight after getting it. Love the fit, color (vintage red), and the fabric is perfect. Super light fabric for merino.

    just amazing

      best fabric on the market! soft, stretchy, breezy yet warm, just a perfect shirt, I also have the long sleeve version of this, its just a great fabric. Icebreaker really knocked it out of the park on this one.

      Dad Loves It

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: True to size

      Got my dad one of these for Christmas and he loves it. As someone obsessed with Icebreaker, he's always looking for new colors & options in his closet. And it's nice to have the option of sizes larger than XL for a looser fit.

      I immediately tossed three of my older tees after using the Sphere. The merino mixed with a little tencel makes this shirt super soft, extremely strong while wet or dry, and tough to get wrinkly. Don't be deterred from the price, since one Sphere shirt is basically three considering it's high quality and odor resistance.

      Great shirt for the trail!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: Medium
      • Height: 6'1"
      • Weight: 174lbs

      I recently wore this shirt for four days straight on a backpacking trip, don't judge me. It kept me cool and dried out quickly. The merino synthetic composite material takes the best of both and makes this a true winner. I would recommend sizing down at least one size maybe even two, due to the stretch this shirt has after use. Very happy with this shirt!

      Multi-purpose shirt

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: XL
      • Height: 6'2"
      • Weight: 195lbs

      I might change it to 5 star after some time but my husband has only had it for 3 weeks. It is a light and stylish shirt that my husband wears working around the house in the summer as well as to the gym. I thought he might complain it is itchy or hot but no complaints about itchiness and he stays cool in it as well. And there is no stink like synthetic fabrics either and it dries quickly. It is more stylish than a t-shirt or a workout shirt so he looks more "presentable" when he has to go out for errands or when someone drops by. He is 6'2", 195 and we kept the XL (L would be better for more casual/less rugged wear but he didn't want it close to the skin).

      Go-to shirt for summer

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: small
      • Height: 5'11"
      • Weight: 165lbs

      The breathability and moisture-wicking properties of merino wool make it unbeatable for hiking or any activity where it's hot and dry. For backpacking or camping trips you can easily wear the shirt multiple days before it needs to be changed out.
      Icebreaker has changed their sizes over the years to make them more "Americanized." I'm 5'11 165lbs and I have to wear a small or the waist is way too baggy.

      Super Comfortable Tee!

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

      This is one of the most comfortable shirts I own. I use it skateboarding, biking, hiking, and to the office. The merino wool blend is really soft to the touch and wicks moisture away from your body quickly. It also doesn't hold odors as much as cotton or polyester. If you haven't worn merino products you're missing out!
