Size chart


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 5 out of 5 by from Favorite article of clothing ever Just an all around great shirt. I'm most comfortable when I'm in a pair of jeans and a T-shirt. These shirts don't fade in color, keep the same fit as when you bought it, so long as you wash it correctly and air dry it and you can wear it multiple days in a row on the trails with out feeling grimy. If it does get dirty, simply rinse it with water ring it out and put it back on. This item is epensive and I usually wait for it to go on sale to purchase a few, but even if I paid full price I feel that the its worth every penny.... NOTE: I did buy one where after a couple weeks the fabric in some areas seperated. In which I simply just exchanged it for a new one because REI is awesome like that.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from disappointed with contrast stitching I own many of these shirts from years past, and they are the best shirts I have ever owned. I wear them to the gym, occasionally to the office, around town, and out for the night. They are comfortable, fit well, do not hold odor, are cool in the heat, and warm in the cold. But, BUYERS BEWARE: The latest iteration of this shirt is not true to the pictures. There is contrasted stitching (grey-white) that ruins the versatility of this shirt and really only makes it appropriate for exercise or as a base layer, and for me the versatility of the shirt was the biggest factor that justified the price. It is incredibly disappointing because I am in need of updating my shirts after years of wear (they do hold up well), but the shirt as it is currently designed won't meet my needs. To the folks at smartwool, please return to matching color stitching to make this shirt as versatile as it once was so I do not have to buy from your competitors.

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 2 out of 5 by from Better than synthetic but poorly made... We bought several of these shirts based on the recommendation that wool was more odor resistant than synthetic material. That seems to be true based on using the shirts several times on multi-day backpacking trips. However one shirt arrived with a small hole and two others have developed holes after just 3 washings. The last one after 2 uses has the stitching in the collar starting to fail. I contacted Smartwool and they said to send anything back I am not satisfied with and they will replace it. I really don't want any more of their shirts if this is the quality of the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rad T Shirt I bought this shirt for a five month trip through South America.  As one of only three shirts brought, I ended up wearing this shirt pretty much every other day for the entire length of the trip.  It was absolutely perfect for every condition possible whether the sweltering heat in the jungle, hiking in the frigid winds in Patagonia, and road tripping on the Pan American highway.  What I also loved is that it looked normal enough to wear around cities and out to bars at night.  Plus it could go weeks (Ehhh I mean days) without being washed and not smell like soggy jungle mold.  This was even my girlfriend's favorite shirt of mine on the trip!  Overall I would fully recommend this shirt and am excited it still looks brand new so I can wear it back at home.

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.
