Good performance, missing turtle neck with max warmth level in shop.
It is a very interesting product due to combination of lightweight, warmth level and odour free characteristics. It saves you from wearing too many layers which can also justify its price. I am missing the turtle collar on mine as it was not available in the shop I bought it and fluff sticks to it which has made choosing black colour not the best idea. But it does its work and does not smell after long hours exercising.

Effective, warm & like a second skin.
This long sleeve Icebreaker top really does what it says in the tin. I purchased it to spend time in -30, and it really works. Its effective, warm & a bit like wearing a pair of slippers. You dont even know your wearing it, but you know its comfy and warm.

Best base layer choice
I've worked at a ski resort and somehow never found a really good base layer, but this is probably the best I have seen. It is warm, for starters, but the big thing about merino wool is that it really doesn't tend to smell, at all, and for that reason alone it wins over anything else I have owned. I bought this in black, and I like that it's not sheer. The material feels nice and the fit is good. Icebreaker clothes come in a few different weights for different temps, and this is 260, so great for cold weather. I wore it in minus 20s as a base layer hiking and snowshoeing and was very warm, and I would use it on the slopes too.

Great but pricey
Would definitely look to buy more icebreaker items. Airs and wicks well with a comfortable fit (I bought the M as they didn't have smaller but it was fine for 5'5" average build). The grey is very flattering and the wool has a really lovely feel and would love to use these too as pajamas for cold winter nights!

Thoroughly recommend this product
This product was advertised as something which could be worn several times before it had to be washed. I was a bit sceptical and at this price I was a bit worried it wouldn't come up to the mark. However, I wore it every day for a week during my skiing holiday and some how it didn't smell. So, no more having to take several tops with me. Now I need just the one. It is also extremely warm and comfortable to wear.

Very comfortable extra layer
During winter in GB I wear these tops under my usual clothes. It doesn't itch at all, has just the right amount of stretch and I have not found a thermal layer to beat it. I also have a 150 icebreaker top but this is not nearly as cosy.
It washes brilliantly and does not fade.
Great price too from this shop
