    Runs a bit smaller

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 180lbs

    I have used this under a jacket, and it provides a lot of insulation and kept me warm. Used as an undershirt this is perfect, but I will buy a XL to use it as a middle layer.

    Sizing is different than usual

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'8"
    • Weight: 145lbs

    My Dad has been a Icebreaker fan since I can remember. He likes sleeveless shirts and the long sleeves one. This shirt has great quality as expected, but he said it was looser than other Mediums he has bought. He also said the sleeves were not quite long enough too. This shirt is pretty thin, so he doesn't expect it to hold up more than a few years.

    He is about 5' 8" and 145 and got the medium.

    My favorite long sleeve, period.

    This is my favorite lightweight long-sleeve shirt hands down. It's so comfortable, and adjusts to a surprisingly wide range of temperatures. The fit is perfect.

    This is my favorite base layer I've ever owned. I just ordered my 2nd shirt as I've been wearing my first one for every single outdoor activity I've done for the past 2.5 years. It is getting quite worn as this is not the most durable shirt, but that's because it is quite thin, which is why I like it so much. I wear it year round as a base layer in the winter and as my sole upper layer in the summer and everywhere in between; always feels comfortable and just the right temperature. The fit is like a long-sleeve t-shirt, not form-fitting, so it works well for wearing under a t-shirt for casual wear in cool weather. It's kind of like a baseball shirt; I always pull the cuffs up around my forearms. It rarely gets washed because it is worn so much there is no time to put it through the wash :) but it never stinks. I hope they never stop making these or I will have to buy a lifetime supply before they do.

    I am 6'1", 195lbs, and I wear the large. The sleeves are not quite as long as it seems they should be, hence why I roll the sleeves up, but it works well for me.

    nice shirt, but...

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size

    i like the feel of the shirt, i am 5'9 and 140ish and this shirt in an L was quite baggy, but short on the sleeves. Feels nice, but just doesn't fit my frame quite right. I would be swimming in an XL but the L's sleeves are too short for me (ape index is spot on)

    Icebreaker. Consistent quality.

    This is my third icebreaker item and I am left with a great impression yet again. This shirt breathes really well which is great for me since I tend to run on the hot side. I loved rock climbing in fall weather in this shirt. Also nice for casual wear because this shirt is very, very light and also really comfortable. Thinking on a long sleeve shirt that is great for active, casual or travel? Look no further!

    My favorite shirt

    They say no B.O.

    To test, I wore my Tech T Lite for three straight days. First, I went mountain biking in the foothills of Salt Lake City. Daytime highs were is the 80s, and I was nervous about being too hot in a black, wool shirt. My fears were quickly put to rest however as the shirt felt great. While I could feel the black color soaking up the sunlight, I never felt more sweaty than usual and it was obvious that the shirt was expelling moisture away from my body. The only place the shirt got soaked was underneath my pack. Color me impressed.

    To test out the odorless claim, I wore my mud splattered, sweat soaked shirt to work. Once again, I felt not to hot, and not too cold the entire day and into the night, and none of my co workers made any mention or stink face at me despite my wearing a shirt I went mountain biking in… either that or my cohorts are really polite.

    On to day three and it was time to head out for some ski touring. I love merino wool as a base layer in the mountains, and the Tech T Lite did not disappoint. I layered it underneath a light mid layer and a windbreaker as temperatures were expected to climb into the 60s at 10,000 feet. For 10 hours we biked, hiked, skinned, boot packed and finally skied down Deseret Peak, and the shirt was a comfortable and versatile layer. As temps rose, I peeled off the windbreaker and mid-layer, and finally just wore the Tech T Lite under the spring sun while making turns on manky snow through the trees.

    Even after all of that, the shirt doesn’t have a whiff of B.O.

    As Expected

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

    As expected great shirt. The shirt is light yet strangly enough warm when it needs to be an cool when it needs to be. I have now worn the shirt several times, enough to have washed twice. Held up very well. Like all other IB products I am very pleased.
