love the fit and warm of Smartwool! Works great on a hike, super warm on the ski hill, and extremely comfortable for wearing around the house on a cold winter day!

go to piece
I love my smartwools and this one is very fun. This was a great deal and I'm glad to find this site. The fit is true to size and it is a go to piece - keeps you warm in the cold weather and can be worn by itself for a walk or under a jacket to the office. I am a large (size 12) and it fits perfectly. It wears forever too.

Super comfortable merino wool base layer. Fits snug to the body so if you don't like tight-fitting layers definitely size up one. I'm 5'7" 140lbs and the medium fit perfectly but definitely form-fitting. Not itchy, purchased in both the purple and sunrise and both cute colors. Haven't washed yet but haven't had problems with shrinking in other Smartwool items as long as I lay them out to dry.

Very cozy, a little small
I've been a big Patagonia Capilene base layer fan for the part few years, but after trying these tops out, I think I'm going to make the switch to Smartwool. What I love most about these thermal tops is that they're 100% wool, with no synthetics, so they don't have that sort of slimy, slippery feel that other brands' (like Patagonia) baselayers can have. These are warm and somewhat fuzzy, without being at all itchy. The tops also have surprisingly flattering shoulder seaming details, which I like. My only complaint is that they feel a tad small. I am 5' 5", 130 lbs., and am usually a Small, but the small in these feels a tiny bit too snug, and the sleeves are maybe an inch too short. Not enough to go up to a Medium for me, but... Just a heads-up.

change in Smartwool sizing
Smartwool makes very high quality and warm baselayer items (and socks). If you've bought their baselayers in the past, please note that you will probably need to go up a size, especially in the bottoms. I took my regular size in the top, and stretched it a bit and it works OK - but I have to return the bottoms. I'll mention that more when I review the bottoms.
