Rated 5 out of 5Â by AllergicKayaker Wore it kayaking Nuchatlitz, despite wool allergy
I just got back from a kayak camping trip to Nuchatlitz on west Vancouver Island. I have a wool allergy so I wore it over thin short sleeved wicking layers, with a long sleeved quick dry layer over it, under my dry suit and at the campsites. I got size medium and it fits close like an undershirt...in contrast, my short sleeve M tech lite fits more like a T shirt and can go over or under long sleeved layers. I found myself tugging at it a bit to fit a little looser to make it more modest and more flattering over my extra tummy fat when I was wearing it as my outside layer when it got hot on the beach, the tugging helped a bit in the short run. I liked that it was the thinnest possible, as we had some unusually warm weather, and that also made it easier to pack when it got too hot to wear it with the under layer. We had unusually rough weather on the water taxi ride out, getting heavily doused with every wave for about twenty minutes. At that point, I really appreciated the layer of warmth that it provided, as I was wearing only a heavy weight long sleeve synthetic shirt over it under my raincoat...I did not get chilled, though other members of the group were fantasizing about a warm shower when we arrived. I wore this shirt as a BO blocker, and it worked well. With about six days of wear, it never developed any odor and it protected layers above it from odor for three days at a time, and could have probably done so for longer. Meanwhile I had to keep changing my wicking layers below it and get rinsed off because they were getting stinky. I am jealous of people who do not have wool allergies and can wear the wool as their base layer. I also tried the merino underpants with silk underpants liners and this worked way better than my various synthetic wicking underwear at keeping the odor down. So, I am still searching for a suitable short sleeved light weight silk liner shirt that I can use with this shirt. Because of my wool allergy, some of the heavier icebreaker products (260 weight) make me sneeze if I wear them as my outside layer, but I did not sneeze when I wore this shirt as my outside layer.

I love this shirt for rowing in Oregon for it's bright color and ability to keep me warm, even when wet. The amazing thing is that I wear it in summer as well and never get overheated (beyond normal). Bright color means that I am seen! Fitted, but not too snug. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Wooladdict I love this shirt!
The shirt I reach for day after day. It goes with so many colors, stays fresh for days, works equally well in hot humid weather and cool windy days with layering. I hope you offer more colors so I can add to my options.

I bought this shirt in mineral - unfortunately, the material is so thin that it's basically transparent, at least in this colour. I don't need anybody to see my bra when I work out and I also wonder about the resistance of the fabric. Returned it.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by AmandaV My new favorite!
This is my new favorite workout shirt. I love the pink color and the super light weight fabric works great for workouts. It's also very soft.

This tee fits well, true to size, and works well as a lightweight base layer for athletic activities since it dries so quickly. The scoop neck allows for use as a base layer under casual clothing too. I love it. I should buy more of these!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by grandpre85 Bought it for my wife, she loves it
This is what she told me: Incredibly soft, comfortable and fits true to size. Great for warm weather running. The green is somewhat sheer and becomes more-so when wet.
Here's what I have to say about Icebreaker clothing: It's fantastic, super soft, breathes and basically never smells. What's not to love?

Super light weight, and just a bit stretchy. Incredibly comfortable and just the right length that I don't have to worry about it riding up when I'm running. Love it!
