Icebreaker Men's Oasis Approach Crewe
While Icebreaker might have a distinct way of spelling the name of their Oasis Approach Crewe for men, this pullover also offers distinct natural Merino wool warmth. The Men's Oasis Approach Crewe is a lightweight, close-fitting design that is intended as a baselayer, but warm and stylish enough to wear alone as a top in mildly cool conditions. It's made from 200-weight Bodyfit Merino wool from New Zealand and won't itch like your grandfather's vintage wool long underwear did in the old days. Merino wool also naturally resists body odors, which appeals to skiers, hikers and climbers who don't like wearing polyester baselayers that are treated with chemicals to minimize odor retention. The fast-drying fabric also travels well and requires minimal maintenance, making it a preferred pick among long distance trekkers and adventure travelers.
- Fabric: 100% Merino wool Bodyfit 200g/m²
- Close fit for easy layering and effective wicking
- Crew neck and raglan sleeves with gussets for enhanced range of motion

- Icebreaker logo tab detailing at hem

This is my 3rd set of Icebreaker base layers. Used to use ones made with synthetic materials, but nothing compares to these Icebreaker woollies. They are very comfortable and seem to last forever.

Expensive but worth it. Fits close yet. Breathable Wicks away moisture well. I gotta say I feel this garment is very comfortable yet stylish enough to wear in the pub for after skiing lunch.

Great Base layer
For a base layer, you can't go past natural fibres, just ask sheep. I have an old polyester base layer top and after 3 seconds of sweating it clunks like a truck stop toilet. I wore this 200 base layer top for 3 days straight (including sleeping!# of backcountry touring and when i took it off it didn't smell at all #ok, subjective judgement!#. The temperature was well above freezing #about 8 or 9 celsius) and when hiking or skinning in the sun it was the only layer I wore. When in the shade or boarding, I just threw on a shell. It dries pretty quick and still provides warmth when wet.
