Rated 5 out of 5 by SWVA251212 Just plain quality
I am 6'1", 195 lb. and 37" long waisted. I live in the mountain area of southwest Virginia and experience frigid/damp fall, winter and spring weather. The fit is perfect. The 1/4 zip neck zipper is cloth protected from throat skin, hem length is 8" below belt line (even though I am long waisted) and the thumb holed sleeves will be invaluable. I have not had the occasion to wear this as August is warm. Why did I buy both the top and bottom in August? Be prepared as Vince Lombardi said "if you are not 15 minutes early, you are late"

Rated 5 out of 5 by PeachMan Wet Landings Made Easy
Got this shirt and matching pants as base layer for Zodiac wet-landings in ice cold Bering Strait last month. The wool fabric does wick body moisture and remains comfortable all day under waterproof jacket, pants, and knee-high boots. When hiking followed landings, the zippered top opened to relieve upper body heat buildup negating the need to remove and carry it. Shirt and pants exceed my expectations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gplayer01 Perfect Fit & Great Quality
I love the Cresta quarter zip base layer. I wish I had bought 2. My chest size was like 41 and I went with the medium rather than large and it fits perfectly. It's not itchy and makes the perfect base layer for hiking. I also bought the Cresta base layer pants. I love the thumb holes in the sleeves to keep your hands covered when you don't want to wear gloves or just don't have gloves handy. Very satisfied.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SasquatchBigfoot A Dry, Warm Base Layer That Does Not Stink
Since purchasing my first wool base layer from LL Bean a couple of years ago, I've become a believer in merino wool as a base layer. The hydrophilic wool is as warm as any of the hydropphobic sythetic base layers. What makes the wool better is that it does not retain odor and has a much greater resistance to pilling. I have several synthetic base layer garments. They all retain odor after laundering. And they mostly stay in the drawer. Not so for my Cresta Wool. If Cresta Wool garments were made in North America, I'd give them 5 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cyclist78731 Wonderful warmth, you will not want to take it off
I am a cyclist,and this was intended to be a layering piece. As such, it is quite nice and immediately replaced my synthetic pieces. I have now ordered the crew neck version to go with this. I highly recommend it. My biggest problem is that after the ride, I don't want to take it off, yet I feel it is somehow not right to continue wearing it. After a 5 hour ride yesterday, it didn't smell, so after my shower I put it right back on! I'm wearing it again today! There is no way you could do that with synthetics! Also, machine wash, hang dry. I did dry it at low heat once, and it did shrink a little but not enough to be a problem, as the sleeves were already pretty long! Anyway, you won't regret getting this item!

Rated 3 out of 5 by weise warm, comforable, does not stay tucked in
The base layer top is warm but does not stay tucked in. My son is not a big man, and definitely no belly, but the shirt pulls out, needs to be longer in the tail.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Goodhue Outstanding!
I've been using a couple of old wool shirts from Bean on really cold days for 10 years but because they're showing their age I decided to spring for a couple of new ones. I am delighted with the Cresta Wool Midweight Base Layer, Quarter-Zip! At 6ft,160 lbs.,the medium fits me perfectly.The thumb holes are a great addition and allow me to put other layers over the shirt without it becoming a wrestling match. The mock-neck is a wonderful feature.It's neither too tight nor too loose and keeps my neck warm while also sealing the warmth in. This shirt is also rather stylish and when I wear it alone it is not too warm while I'm inside. While it may have seemed expensive,I've found it to be money well-spent! Highly recommended!
