Rated 2 out of 5 by Shopforkhaki Too short
I am 5'10", 185 pounds and purchased this in a large. Out of the box it was shorter than I would have liked. After washing per the instructions it is even shorter, barely down to my hips. I will be returning this for a tall. On the plus side it is very warm and comfortable.

I researched the new synthetics. Found that merino wool was probably the better choice. My husband loves this. Soft against the skin. Absolutely no "wool itchiness". Light weight but very warm. Keeps you warm outside without making you too hot when you come back in. I washed it in cold water gentle cycle & hung it up to dry. Came out perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Charpentier Excellent value and performance
This is my second year wearing these shirts and I find that they are so comfortable and so warm on cold days that I am practically in one all day every day. ( I now have four shirts, two T necks). They can be worn alone or under a sweater, they look very good and the price is more than competitive with base layers twice the price. Great product, now don't tinker with it and ruin it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by maverika Cresta Wool base layer
I think that this base layer is the best thing going I've had them for about a month and love the soft feel of the wool against the skin and yes they effectively move moisture away from the body to keep you warm. I bought the top and bottom both large regular i'm 5'6" 180lbs and they fit wonderfully on my frame. These are most definetly a good solid buy for the avid outdoors man or just for lounging around the house in the mornings

Rated 5 out of 5 by tsb634 Great base layer
Heavier than what I expected, well made. I love wool for working or hunting in the fall or winter, and this base layer is just the ticket to complete my wardrobe. Very warm, wicks moisture from skin and does not hold body odor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pnutsmom My husbands new favorite shirt
Very comfortable for a wool shirt, not itchy. Can be worn by itself or as a bottom layer. I'm considering one for myself!

This shirt, in terms of quality and value, is by far the best wool mid-layer I own. I could not be happier. Perfect feel, perfect fit, excellent quality. Nothing else to say. Thank you LL Bean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Steofan Great wool midlayer
I wanted a slightly loose fitting, warm wool midlayer and this is it. Very comfortable and it did a great job of blocking 15mph wind and keeping me warm in the 60's during the day and down to 35 at night (cloudy and very damp the whole time). I wore this for 72 hours straight and did not want to take it off when I came home. The long sleeves with thumb loops will be perfect for the upcoming snowshoe season. I'm 6'2", 160 lbs and purchased the Large size, Tall, Item # 264501.
Don't hesitate, pick up one of these if there are any left in stock.

This is an update to my "first reactions" review printed below.
These have now been washed several times and hold their shape and size without pilling. In addition to many days of use here in MA during the cold Spring, I wore the crew top and pants for several days in early May while fishing from a canoe on a lake in upstate Maine in cold, damp, windy, and sometimes rainy weather and I was always warm and comfortable. These are excellent for cold, damp New England weather.

My favorite of the warm weather undershirts. Nice fit especially after washing, holds its color and keeps one war, when active or inactive.
