Summary

Living in the Northeast, base layers are necessary in the winter months. It’s much easier to cool off and shed clothes than to find warmth outdoors. The New Zealand Bodyfit Lightweight Oasis crewe is a well made all-season wool that I found to be pretty much perfect worn solo for trail running down to about 45 degrees or with a windblock jacket.

Pros

  • I liked the side stitching because it enhanced the body and did not ride up while I was in motion.
  • I wore the top several times during aerobic activities and outdoors and liked the merino wool breathability and softness.

Cons

  • My only gripe with the top is the sizing. I tend to be a pretty true size extra large (size 10/12), but on me, the XL crewe was way too tight. If you do decide to invest in the shirt, I would go for a size larger than what you'd normally buy.

The Icebreaker Oasis Scroll Crewe long-sleeve top is a great choice for layering. Icebreaker merino wool comes from alpine sheep, and is much finer and softer than wool from lowland sheep. Merino wool wicks away moisture and resists odors-naturally! Wool is ideal for warm to hot weather; wear it solo in hot weather, or layer with another garment in cool temperatures. Raglan sleeves allow excellent freedom of movement and move seams away from shoulders for better comfort when carrying a pack. Machine washable, lay flat to dry. Closeout.

Icebreaker spiced up the Womens BodyFit 200 Oasis Scroll Crew Long-Sleeve Top with some Old-World-style calligraphic swirls, so you get a baselayer top that is as beautiful as it is functional. This top's super-soft, 200-gram wool retains body heat, wicks moisture away from your skin, and breathes for total comfort and warmth during your cold-weather pursuits. Merino also naturally resists odors, so you can show off the fancy scrollwork in the cabin after a long day on the slopes without sinking the place up.
