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

I absolutely love my Smartwool base layer!!!! My friend said Smartwool is the best, and she is right. It is warm enough for this cold winter in Tennessee. If I lived in an area where the winters were 20 degrees or cooler much of the winter I would get the 150 weight. I am 5'4," weight about 130, a little busty and I got the medium. It fits well and is not tight, though I wish it were a tad tighter on me, but I'm happy with the medium. It really regulates my temperature well. I wear it under my down jacket and stay toasty warm. When I well a shell over the jacket I am warm into the single digits. Being a true breathable base layer, I sometimes get a tad bit chilly just wearing this without another layer on top. It wicks moisture away beautifully and I stay very dry.

I love the berry heather color, though people who dislike bright, vivid colors might not care for it. An extra detail is that the turtleneck is lined with the same pattern as my smartwool beanie in the same pink color. The top is a tiny bit scratchy, but, even though I cannot wear most wool without an undershirt, I soon forget about it.

My only complaint is that the wool piles (sp?, get little balls) around the wrists in a few places. But it is not bad enough to give it 4 stars. Be careful! You might want to buy more:)
