Icebreaker 260 Midweight LS Crewe
This shirt is the best base layer I've found yet!
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $55
This shirt is the best base layer I've found yet! Warm in cold weather but not too hot in warmer environs. Soft, non-itchy and really nice shaped garment.
- Great fit
- Pricey - but worth it
I bought a lot of base layer shirts before finally spending the $ for wool. I've never looked back and have now found my new gear addiction. Wool is all that they say it is.
Do a test for yourself. Do a workout or hike in a synthetic then the same one next time in the wool shirt and see the difference. It is the best insulator, has the beautiful softness and nothing beats the body odor like it. And it is soft — not rough or itchy.
Other wonderful brands I've found are: SmartWool and Stoic. I have several layering pieces from head to toe. Your investment really lasts too. Just do the smart shopping up front and find clearance leftovers. Summer seems to have the most available variety on sale.
Enough said, you know I really love it!!!!

For layering comfort, Icebreaker gave the BodyFit Crew raglan sleeves and pushed forward the side seams. Wear this top under a fleece on a chilly spring day or by itself for a trail run.
