Great fit, poor quality wool

The fit of the zip top is great but it started to pill after one wash. I have other merino wool pieces from Smartwool for example and they haven't pilled after years of wear and tear and washes. I love the patterns but the quality is not up to the standards I would expect from this brand.

Old version was 5-star, new is 2.5-star

The older one was amazing - the fabric held up, it looked amazing, and it was SO warm. The new material is not as warm and doesn't hold up as well (pills a lot). Yes, it doesn't help with odor protection, but that's not why I buy thermals so I feel like that's irrelevant. If Backcountry went back to the original fabric it would be worth the $60-7$0 price, but the new one certainly is not.

Not worth the price

The top doesn't fit very well and pulls up. It also doesn't offer very well "sweat and odor management." I don't sweat much but this doesn't seem to offer any sweat protection.

Poor quality

I bought the older version of this top for my wife and the fit is nice but the fabric is majorly pilling and not in good condition after only a few washes. She says it is very warm, but the overall quality and durability is not good at all on this item. Not worthy of the high price tag

I was excited to find this under layer as the price made it seem a great deal. However, the materials are quite bad, it makes you sweat easily and it doesn’t keep you warm
