This hoodie is basically the 250 baselayer with some extra features like the nice long cuffs with thumb holes, a quarter zip, and a hood. This could easily stand in for a base layer as the hood is low profile and also doesn't take up much room when not in use. The hood would fit nicely under a helmet or another jacket's hood. Overall, it feels well made with a lot of nice details. I typically get smartwool baselayers in a size small for a pretty skin tight fit, but I went with a medium on this more a more standard hoodie fit.

Great shirt. The wool is super soft yet somehow still very durable. The hood is a great touch to take off that little bit of chill on a fall evening or even better on a frigid night when you want a liner for you big puffy hood. Its like a little hug for your head. Hand panty thumb holes are ALWAYS appreciated and this hoodie has them. The fit is just slim enough to make it athletic for climbing in but relaxed enough you don't look like eurotrash at the crag.
