Superb quality, style and comfort
I now own several of these tech tops, in different hues, because I found myself wearing the first one that I bought just about every day. The raglan sleeves and main seams give the garment a stylish fit, with smooth lines, and the top feels comfortable either open or zipped up high at the neck. The wool is of superb quality, with no roughness. This top is comfortable to wear next to the skin and also layers very well with other Icebreaker clothing. I have worn it hiking and while traveling on long journeys and I am tending more and more to make Icebreaker clothes the ones I wear for everyday activities. I am 5'6" tall, weighing about 130 lbs, and I can wear either a Medium (for a tighter fit) or a Large in this top. My arms are somewhat long and the sleeves for both of those sizes are fine (whether or not I am using the thumb loops). I prefer tops to be on the long side, rather than short, and the length of this top is perfect.

A perfect layering piece
Great fit, great quality, great top! It is so warm and soft- not the least bit scratchy. I like it better than the synthetic base layers I own. If you buy for backpacking, it dries about as quick as a synthetic does too

I love Icebreakers
This is my third Ice-Breaker base layer wool top from IceBreaker. This is my second 260 as I needed another top in my ski wardrobe. The neck is high, keeping my neck warm and cozy on cold winter ski days here in Whistler B.C. , the neck has a comfortable zipper that is easy to unzip when I am overheating then, I just zip it up and the moisture wicks away, so I am not cold when I slow down my activity. The wool is soft, easy to wash and dry in the machine and highly durable. I am a total Ice-Breaker Fan.

I brought this shirt up to Quebec to go cross country skiing; it was fabulous! It fits very well, looks great and kept me warm! I bought the medium as I am 5'8' and 145#. I LOVE IT! I have a new favorite brand and it's Icebreaker!

Excellent moisture wicking. Considerably more odor resistant than synthetics. Just returned from spring ski conditions in Tahoe and, in the 50's, it's all I wore.
