    Matilda Baselayer 1/4-Zip Top

    Whether you're riding the resort or skiing the wilds, the Backcountry Matilda Baselayer 1/4-Zip Top is there to keep you warm and dry.

    Flattering and Warm

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'6"
    • Weight: 125lbs

    Per my wife:

    This base layer is great for layering on cold days or for a single layer under a micropuff for warmer days. I usually wear this on top of a thinner layer so I don't notice the itch, although the wool doesn't seem to bother me stand alone either. The fit is super flattering, great length and soft feel. I would highly recommend this layer! I have also washed it multiple times this season and it remains same quality.

    Backcountry Matilda Baselayer 1/4-Zip

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

    This baselayer has a flattering fit and is comfortable to wear, but is a bit on the itchy side. The material is really thin, even for a baselayer so it's not as warm as I would like. Overall, it's an okay baselayer.

    Quality issues

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Size Bought: xsmall
    • Height: 5'2"
    • Weight: 101lbs

    it was a gift to my wife so she can use during the ski season and she's a little bit disappointed.
    Though it looks fancy and kept my wife warm during our stay in Vermont , with temperatures between 42/32 , after a couple of times in the washing machine , it has already shown pills all over the baselayer making us doubt about the product's quality.
    She wouldn't buy this product again.

    Hey Fernando, I'm sorry that you have experienced pilling with this baselayer. There are some specific washing instructions with this garment because the wool fabric requires more technical care. The label reads as follows: Machine Wash
    Delicate wool cycle
    Inside out
    Do not bleach, no chlorine
    Do not Tumble Dry
    Slow Spin or Flat dry in shade
    Cool iron
    Use wool detergent

    Keeps me warm

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: extra small
    • Height: 5'0"
    • Weight: 100lbs

    this top keeps me warm when out riding in the mountains and is comfy . I did not find it itchy or uncomfrtable, the collar and zipper are different then i expected but that part doesnt bother me too much, i just want to stay warm out there and it definitely does the job. It does run quite small, i kind of wish i bought a size up since i bought an extra small but its not unbearable, in fact since its snug it probably keeps me warmer. but other then that i love it and its my go to when im outside in frigid temps!

    not a fan of zipper and collar

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Size Bought: small
    • Height: 5'4"
    • Weight: 120lbs

    Unfortunately I did not like the collar. It was itchy on my neck. I ended up buying the version of this shirt without the zipper. It's great and I didn't find it itchy at all.

    A new favorite!

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

    Love the wool quality and fit of the top! It's the perfect layer for warmth, and makes for a great wear alone when I get too warm.
    I bought the turq print, and love all of the details!
