Five stars, awesome!
on March 26, 2017
This shirt is absolutely great as a base layer for cold weather. It feels like a thick heavyweight knit cotton on the skin, but is 100% synthetic. It dries EXTREMELY fast when wet and is great at wicking moisture away. I wore it skiing and got it very sweaty; it dried completely in about 20 minutes when I took off my outer jacket at lunchtime. It also didn't smell like BO at all by the end of the first day, so I was actually able to wear it a second day in a row just fine (despite having other options packed, it is such a great shirt and far & away the best base layer I own now).
As other reviewers have mentioned, the sleeves are a little too short. It also does run snug since the fabric doesn't have a ton of stretch, but that is exactly what you want for a base layer. I'm 5'7", 160lb for reference and ordered a medium which is my normal size in most tops, it fit me very tight to the skin but was not uncomfortable at all. If you prefer a loser fit I recommend to size up; as a tight base layer it is pretty true to size.
Bottom line...get this! You will not regret it. I am probably going to buy another and see if they make a men's version to get my boyfriend.
