    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smartwool T-Worth every penny, if... Worth every penny, if... you are a true outdoor enthusiast that does not mind spending some coin for great comfort. Bottom line: True to size for a form fitting base layer, but size up if you like a loose fit. If you have sensitive skin and usually wear soft cotton you'll notice, but it is unparalleled in technical comfort. Extended review: First, the fit. Its trim, and body hugging, which is perfect for a base layer. If you work out, like the guy modeling it in their website, it'll be flattering. If you like the other 99% of us, it'll show every bump and lump. Next the feel. This really is T-shirt weight and were it not for the label saying its wool, you would never guess that. While not the scratchy, itchy, wool from the sweater your grandma knitted you, this shirt isn't Egyptian cotton either. To be fair, its wool, and comfortable next to the skin...for wool. However, its not even close to being as soft as my graphic tshirts from more fashion-oriented retailers. Not being critical, just being real. BUT, compared to my everyday graphic T's, this shirt trounces in performance. Actually, there is no comparison. I bought two of these (blue and green) over a year ago and have worn them as a base layer while boarding in Utah POW, and as T-shirt in Liberia Africa in their rainy season (still 90F+ with humidity like no other). In both extreme contexts, this shirt performed amazing well. In Utah, it was warm, and did its job wicking sweat away as I tromped through back country flats. Never felt clammy. In Africa, I slept in this, sweat in this, and got rained on in this. It always felt cool, dried quickly, and never stank. Amazing really. In between trips, I wore this to the gym, layered under dress shirts for style (and comfort), etc, very versatile. My only concern is durability. As I said, I bought two shirts. One shirt got a small run in it right by my belly button within a few months. That one went back for warranty. The other one, over the year, and extended wear, got holes and runs in the arm pit area. This one I'm not sending back because I really did wear it hard (because I loved it so much) and for sure got my money's worth for what I believe was a fair "lifetime of the product." (I did darn the holes and its good as new.) I wish I could afford a dozen of these in as many colors as they make, but I can't. That said, they are the perfect gift, for the outdoor enthusiast that has "everything" or at least thinks they have everything--until they get one of these.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for backpacking A t-shirt that resists odor? Sounds perfect for long backcountry backpacking trips. And it worked like a charm under light-use conditions. But don't count on this product with a full pack ... it distintigrated underneath the pack lumbar pad during 2nd week of use. I'm returning as defective, i.e. didn't hold up for a promoted use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small fit better than Medium True to size, but I get one size smaller if I want a garment to wick. It it doesn't stick (to the skin), it doesn't wick. It will stay wet under my backpack straps, but so will "performance" fabrics. Body odor doesn't seem to affect this shirt. therefore no stink. Unless you object to the aroma of wet wool. DO NOT wash in a top loader because the agitator in most TL's will try to shred your smartwool. front load only, or just cleanse in plain or soapy water. this shirt will serve you well.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Over priced Product does not wear very well. Tears easily, not durable for the expense.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I own four of these shirts! I own four of these shirts and plan to buy more. They are extremely comfortable and breathe very well. Due to the fact that they are wool they cut down the body odor when perspiring as well. I love this shirt and would wear it 24/7 if I could. I plan on getting more of them and replacing all my other t-shirts with them eventually.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bye-bye polypro I've been using polypro base layers ever since the late 70ies. Excellent for keeping one warm, but the stench factor has never been eliminated, regardless of various manufacturers claims to the contrary. These Smartwool T's are game changers. After reading that similar garments are worn by professional cyclists, I bought one for active sports in cold weather. I now own 5! I wear them hiking, skiing, sailing etc. I also wear them around the house and as undershirts in cold weather. And they are great for extended travel. While the concept may be a tad gross, I've been able to wear these for 4 or 5 days with no odor problems. I was taking daily showers, but laundry facilities were scarce. I took 2 on a 2 week trip to Colombia and only washed them once. Didn't offend the natives. Try that with polypro or cotton!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best shirt I have ever owned. I had read some great reviews about 100% wool next-to-skin shirts. So I decided to take a chance and give it a try (I say take a chance because of the price). My first activity was a 5 mile run around Balboa Park on a mild but sunny day. The shirt was very comfortable and I never felt too hot. After the shirt dried off from the run, I checked for odor, but there was nothing! Second activity was a tough hike out in the SoCal desert, the day was windy and a bit cold. I wore this shirt as my base layer with a long sleeve shirt and a light fleece on top. That kept me comfortable in the morning. When the day got a little bit warmer, the shirt did a great job of wicking the sweat away and keeping me cool. I don't know what else to say except that this is the best shirt I've ever owned and I will gladly pay the steep price for another one. The only question that lingers is about durability, so we'll just have to wait and see.
