I'm a true believer in the power of Merino wool. The material doesn't smell after repeated use, unlike poly-whatever.
This shirt fits snugly, just right in my opinion. I'm 5'10" and 155lbs. and I wear a size medium. The Smart Wool shirts are a bit looser fitting. The Ibex shirts are loose like the Smart Wool, but they're longer, which I don't like. Patagonia gets it just right.
Although I've only worn the shirt a handful of times, I'm hoping the 20% blend of polyester will help prevent the shirt from forming random holes, which is the real drawback of lightweight Merino. We'll see.
Feels true to size
