Comments about Icebreaker Siren Sweetheart Top - Wool - Women's:
I own three of these shirts (in black, size medium) and have worn them extensively this summer as an only layer for both casual and backcountry endeavors. So far, they've kept me very comfortable in the heat and humidity. The wool effectively wicks sweat and moisture away from skin, so I don't have to deal with feeling sweaty during my very active job or whilst hiking.
This shirt fits closely, due to spandex content, but isn't skin-tight. I like that the sleeves don't flare at all and come about 1/3 of the way down my upper arm. The neckline is nice too, not too low and much better suited for casual-wear (where you care more about what you look like) than high-necked, crew type shirts that look very sporty/techy. For what it's worth, I'm big in the chest and I don't have any of the associated problems with this shirt (opacity issues, strange puckering/stretching). I also love that there is no giant/glaring logo, although there is a barely noticeable, faintly written icebreaker logo on the left hip.
I don't find this shirt to be itchy at all. As for the anti-odor claim, I find that even when this shirt stink when I take it off at the end of the day, the smell is much less pronounced the following morning. For shorter backpacking trips, I might only bring one and just wear it the whole time.
In the winter, I might wear these shirts as base layers though in all likelihood these shirt will probably be summer-use only.
Feels true to size
