Casey T.wrote a review of SmartWool NTS Midweight Zip Top - Men's on June 16, 2015
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: True to size
What this is, is about the same thing as a high end thin sweater...the look, the feel...very similar material. The difference is, I won't get hot in this one. It breathes well, and actually keeps me cool. I haven't tried to let it keep me warm, because I can't decide if I like the size, so I might return this one. I can't decide if I want it a little loose or tighter. I'm 5'11", 167lb, 41 chest, 31 waste. I went with the large (based on the reviews). It's loose all over and a little long in the arms...the size I would get if buying a sweater to wear out...so it looks good and feels good. Not like wearing spandex...no struggle to get it off. For me, it's true to size for what it's made to be. A base-layer...which is why I bought it...as a base-layer for backpacking, and its right in that size, where it's hard to decide if I would like it better if it were a little tighter...maybe I would like a not so tight base-layer. Any advice? Does anyone prefer a flowing base-layer over a "next to skin"?
