Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
I was given the Icebreaker 150 Zone Long-Sleeve Crew Shirt and Pants from Backcountry to test out, the following review is my honest opinion.
I love this base layer. IceBreaker added some great features to the classic 150 weight top making it perfect for high out put activities and those start/stop outings like alpine climbing, mountaineering, and ski touring. The strategic mesh zones on the back and under arm let excess heat escape while moving. This keeps you nice and dry for long cold belays or digging pits. The thumb loops are great for keeping the elements out when worn under gloves . With a lycra/wool blend this piece is mobile, comfortable, and isn't itchy at all.
I went with a large though a medium would be better as a next to skin, athletic fit for me, I prefer a looser fit in my base layers and the large is perfect. It is long enough to stay tucked into ski pants as well as look good as a stand alone top. I enjoy having more freedom of motion in the large as well. My arms a lightly long so the large allows for comfortable use of the thumb holes.
