This base layer bottom is thinner than I expected but is warm as merino wool should be. I shall be wearing it every weekend for my long walks. My only reservation is that I am about the same size as the model shown in the picture; I am 34-25-34 while the model is 34-26-34, and I am 5'4" while the model is 5'6". I expected to look like the model when I put it on, but I don't. It is too large on my waist by about 5 inches in circumference. There is also an added piece in between legs, which to me makes it look like men's clothing. Thank God, I can sew so will alter it myself. But this would work better on a person with a 36-30-38 figure. I give four star for the soft buttery merino wool.
I can't speak highly enough of Minus 33's 100% merino wool clothing! After scouring hundreds of online reviews, I purchased this Minus33 Women's 'Liberty' Merino Wool Lightweight 1/4-zip Base Layer Top in grey with the intention of thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail. This turned out to be my Every Day Shirt on the trail. Unless you try it, you just won't be able to believe how ideal this shirt is! The knit is fine and I did have to be careful to not catch it in the buckle of my hip belt. It feels like the softest thinnest t-shirt; not a single itch or scratch! What they say about Merino wool is true ... it does not hold body stink like synthetics do! The seams are all well made and comfortable. Never had any problems with the zipper. The sleeves are slightly on the long side but then I'm short and the sleeves served well to pull down over my hands somewhat when I didn't quite need gloves. This is NOT a heavy shirt! It's supremely lightweight. Machine wash and dry, too! (I was always sure to never dry hot) AND they have really big sizes! Just can't say enough good things about it! This is a hands down winner for me. It's going to last me forever, too!
I loved these so much I'm going to order two more. Perfect for winter running or for a warm layer under jeans. It's just the right thickness, not so thin like silk but breathable and lightweight enough to run in. I liked the fit, snug but not tight.
