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!
The fabric on this thermal crew top feels wonderfully soft; it's the first thing I noticed when I took it out of the package. Be mindful that this top is very snug in fit, and you should probably go up a size when ordering if you're planning on wearing it for activities that require a lot of arm motion or if you like a more relaxed fit to your clothes. However, even though I ordered a medium and probably *should* return it, I don't want to do without it for even one day. I walk the dog early in the morning and late at night, in temperatures as low as 5 degrees, and this thermal top keeps me so warm, that I'm just going to order another one in large. If you want to compare your size, I'm 5' 6" and slender. So far I've washed it about 10 times and it's holding up very well. I only wish it were available in more colors.
This top is very warm. Good to wear under clothing in cold days. I haven't actually skied in it yet, but I thing it will work. I am a small, but I got a medium, and it seems to be true to size since it's a bit big on me.
