Icebreaker Men's 200 Oasis L/S Crew
the product is itchy
The product doesn't stink which is good for the purpose of using for more than one day without washing. However, when in contact with the skin, the itching is a problem.

Toasty warm and no smell!
Excellent product as I have come to expect from Icebreaker. My only criticism is that the men's tops are a bit short in the body, particularly as they always shrink a wee bit after a few washes.

This product was great for my ski holiday, will be buying another one very soon
This item was sold to me as an alternative to the base layers that keep you dry and warm while skiing, snowboarding or other outdoor activities. All other base layers can only be worn for one day as they collect your body odour and will stink after just one day on the slopes. The Icebreaker Oasis base layer can be worn multiple days and does not smell due to it being made of Merino wool, it somehow traps the odour. Itâs also very warm, comfortable and lightweight. This is a great product and I will be buying another one very soon. They are expensive but well worth the price, the quality is so good you will be able to use this for many ski holidays over many years.

Great product. Did exactly what I wanted it to do
As the autumn started, and the temperature started dropping, I'd read online, and spoken to others that the thing to wear to keep warm and comfy on a bike was a merino wool base-layer.
So I went to a Cycle solutions on my way to work, who didn't have one in my size as stock hadn't come in just then. They were very helpful and recommend I go to Snow and Rock, who they assured me would be likely to do so.
And indeed they have. The very helpful staff there discussed my needs made a recommendation and off I went.
I must say, from the first ride onwards, I was impressed. Warm, comfy, not sweaty, looks good, doesn't smell at all, even after hours in the saddle and not washing. it fitted me just great.
It was more expensive than I thought, but I'd fully recommend it.
So, five stars from me.

Yes a comfortable, warm product that ticks all the boxes.
Bought my latest addition to winter thermal products and so far I'm highly delighted with it. Have tested it last week in The Lakes where we experienced some hailstones on the tops. Intend to take my "Ice-breaker" to the far flung reaches of Torridon and Glen Nevis next week. Don't anticipate any problems with the Merino Wool at all. Washes well too.
