    Details

    Have no fear.

    Luckily, you layered the SmartWool Men's NTS Midweight Zip Top under your waterproof shell before hitting the slopes this morning, especially considering the twenty minute lift-hold you endured in frigid, single-digit temps. This midweight baselayer features cozy merino wool for high levels of heat-trapping warmth and moisture-wicking comfort. Moreover, the seamless shoulders and flatlock body seams eliminate the scratchy, irritating feel common with many wool baselayers.

    • Wool baselayer helps you endure bitter temperatures
    • Merino wool regulates body temperature and combats odor
    • Henley zipper opens up when you need let some heat escape
    • Slim fit layers well under midlayer for a bulk-free fit
    • Item #SWL00TJ

    Perfect skiing baselayer

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: M
    • Height: 6'1"
    • Weight: 165lbs

    Sizing: 6’1 M 165 lbs - bought the L and the M and returned L without opening after trying on the M. Perfect tight fit which is what I wanted and the sleeves reach the wrists of my long, gangly arms.

    I got this because I’m always cold and wanted the warmest baselayer available. My philosophy when skiing is that I’d rather be hot/sweaty after a hard run in the trees than be cold going up the lift. This baselayer keeps me very warm and is also decent at dumping heat after a hard run. I just unzip the top at the lift line and once I’m on the lift I feel comfortable again.

    I also noticed that it does a great job wicking moisture, which was my only concern when buying this.

    Can’t speak to the durability because I’ve only used it 4-5 times but it’s held up being machine washed and dried flat so I’m feeling like it will last a while with care.

    Versatile Baselayer

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 150lbs

    The Smartwool Merino 250 Baselayer 1/4-Zip is by far my most worn apparel item I own. It's the perfect baselayer for just about any cool / cold weather high output activity. The merino wool has a perfect feel, soft without being itchy or bothersome. Layers well with most mid / outer layers and doesn't absorb odors like synthetic fabrics.

    Excellent Buy

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: xlarge
    • Height: 6'
    • Weight: 234lbs

    I used for the ski season in Vermont (1st week of 2019) with temperatures between 40/20 degrees and have absolutely nothing to complain about it . A T-Shirt , the Merino Baselayer and my Ski jacket kept me warm at all time . Im even using it on a daily base to go to work. Avoid the use of extra layers even in the lower temperatures as we saw in NY in the last couple of days (20/21 of January 2019)
    I would recommend it for anyone who has doubts if its a product you must buy for the winter season

    Good ice fishing base layer

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size

    Gave this as a gift to my father in law who goes ice fishing in Wisconsin a couple days a week. He loves it - fits well and is really warm.

    Perfect Baselayer

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 150lbs

    I bought this for my partner as he wore his last one out. He owned the original for 3 years and it saw heavy use. It has a great, stylish, slim fit for casual nights out yet still performs for all your outdoor adventures. The super soft merino wool ensures you will stay comfortable for years to come.

    Great Baselayer!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I purchased these as a gift for my brother. He said: "I use merino wool for all of my base layers, typically a 100, 150 and 250 with a shell or insulated jacket for almost all winter activities. This 250 layer works particularly well as an outer layer skate skiing or jogging throughout the winter. In the summer I'll wear this 250 layer as a single layer on cool nights or on casual outings. Smartwool makes a great product and this one in particular gets more use than any of my other layers."

    Very comfortable

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: xl
    • Height: 6'2"
    • Weight: 230lbs

    Really enjoy the high neck on this, cuts down on the draft. Item is soft and comfortable. Keeps me warm

    Really warm baselayer

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 125lbs

    It is very warm. I like how slim the shirt is which fits me very nicely. This is my first wool baselayer and I feel slightly uncomfortable wearing. It doesn't itch but not fully smooth. I can still feel like I am wearing something different than cotton or polyester. Still, for how warm and how it stay fresh and doesn't stink I definitely recommend.

    Comfortable Baselayer

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

    The top is comfortable, warm, feels great, and fits well. Great base layer for skiing or hiking. I am confident in its ability to keep me warm through out the day.

    killer base layer

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: large
    • Height: 6'5"
    • Weight: 165lbs

    looking for a base layer? look no further. this is the most comfortable base layer I own, it wicks away all sweat, dry's fast and keeps me nice an warm on the slopes all day.

    Layer up!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 185lbs

    This is one of my favorite baselayers to wear. It's moisture-wicking and does a great job at not stinking after a few uses (I try to get a few days out of my baselayers...don't judge me). Super soft and fits great as well. Can't beat it!

    Excellent baselayer

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    Warm, comfortable, couldn't ask for more. I like the zip feature. Can wear several days will out camping without dreading the odor of the clothing.

    Best baselayer ever?

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 6'2"
    • Weight: 180lbs

    For fit, I am 6'2" 170lbs, Long torso, arms. I wear Medium. Larges are just too long and don't give the "next to skin" feel.

    I love this shirt. I own 3 of them only because I use them nearly everyday from november to april.

    Stretchy, wicking, warm and breathable.
    When warn standalone it keeps me warm even when drenched. I prefer to layer over a light compression shirt to speed up the wicking.
    1\2 length zipper is great for venting.

    I really miss the thumb holes the old funnel top had!

    Now this is the most important feature I look for in a base layer:

    It doesn't stink even if you wear it for a week straight. I know some people like the "feel" or the "warm to weight" ratio. But as a semi pro ski bum, I don't need to smell bad after touring day in and day out without the ability to do laundry.

    Take that capilene!!

    no complaints

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: small
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 150lbs

    I use this shirt as a baselayer for snowboarding, as well as overnight backpacking trips. It does the job. It's held up well after nearly a year of use, no holes or signs of wear. I machine wash it like normal clothing, although when I first bought it I hung it up to dry. I am 5'11 and 150 lbs and bought the small, because I prefer my baselayers to be skin tight.

    Worth the $$

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 6'1"
    • Weight: 160lbs

    I use this as a base layer to snowboard in, and love it. I didn't think I would like the zip top, but it comes in handy when you get hot. The mid weight felt perfect. Not too thin, not too heavy.
