User Review: Icebreaker Men's 260 Midweight LS Crewe
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $50
Great winter weight shirt! Nice heavy weight, but not too hot when worn in warm weather!
Men's M fits great (slim fit) for 5'10"/160lbs.
- Low odor
- Good craftsmanship
- Longer dry time
This shirt continues to wear well after owning for about a year. I always handwash/wash gentle cycle and air dry. A nice slim fit, I typically wear a synthetic long sleeve underneath for my winter layering system, then a highly breathable mid-layer, and eVent shell. Waist and sleeve length are perfect.
I've never had a concern with itching; great wicking as a standalone, or when layering. Very breathable when weather permits no coats! This merino wool shirt does a great job against STINKY B. O. I've always found sufficient warmth with this 260 series, never getting overheated either.
I'm careful with abrasion, as any wool will snag... manufacturing appears to be great, looks like it will be several years at minimum before retiring.
