Rated 5 out of 5 by GreensKeeperGirl My new favorite
Super comfortable, flattering and warm. So lightweight you almost forget it's on. Normally I am very wary of shirts with zippers that rest on your throat, but this one passes the test- it isn't irritating like so many are. I don't understand the reviewers who say it's itchy. I have sensitive skin and this doesn't itch at all, even when sweaty. Go buy one! :)

Rated 3 out of 5 by ellenesq So unattractive I didn't open the packet
Unlike the matching bottoms, the blue stitching does nothing for this top.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mountaingrrl Very Pleased
I love this shirt!! I can't wait to run in the cold with it as my base layer. I didn't realize these came in different weights. I opened the package and haven't taken them off since trying them on; am actually wearing the shirt and pants to sleep tonight, they are so comfy. A tad bit itchy, but not too bad. Wool is the only way too go, synthetics just don't last as long. I ordered the XS, (I am 5'7" and 34B), athletic/slim build. I love that it isn't too short. I have a long torso and I love that it will cover my stomach when out in the cold. Also, the arms are long enough as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BostonTerrier There's nothing like merino wool
This zip-up turtleneck is a perfect insulating, light layer. I wear it under my big Aran sweater for ice skating. The wool is smooth and non-itchy. This is my umpteenth merino purchase from L.L. Bean...no need for synthetics!

Rated 5 out of 5 by DoggistsGranny Love, love this layer!
This is a very soft, breathable and comfortable lightweight layer, both for under a heavier layer and alone. I tend to run a little on the warm side so this is perfect for me. I also am very pleased that the arms are not too tight. You can push up the sleeves which is not always the case with long underwear. And the shape of the garment is very flattering. I haven't washed this yet but it does not appear that it will pill. It is a bit pricey but I love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lynnrx63 Very Nice
I've worn this so far only in 30-35 degree weather, and it definately adds more warmth than the silk base layer I have. It is not as itchy as wool normally is, but it does feel very slightly itchy. Otherwise very comfortable, love the long sleeves and length of top, soft. could wear silk under it to avoid itchy feeling.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Nickname2233k0 Too long
Last year I purchased this in medium. It was too long, but i kept it anyway cause i wanted lightweight wool for cool weather souther calif. cycling. I'm 5 feet tall, 125. this year i ordered the small, and its still too long, and too tight. It's very nice lightweight, it just doesn't fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Trifele Nice base layer, soft wool
I just got this base layer shirt a couple days ago, and have not taken it off. It is thinner than I expected (quite sheer -- a light colored bra shows through) but very soft and well made. It should be good for outdoor work this fall or winter, worn under a sweater or jacket. I didn't buy this for actual exercising, but I may give it a try while running or skiing, in place of a polypro technical underlayer. If I were to criticize anything, I wish the sleeves were a bit snugger, so they hugged the arms tighter. All in all, seems like a very good undershirt/base layer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Californiacold Love this top
I can't believe this is wool! I walk every morning at 6 am in Northern California. This is a warm and comfortable top. I wear fleece on top when I'm walking or wear it over my tech t-shirt on my way to the gym. I'm a curvy gal and I love the fit. It is just right.
I haven't washed it yet. It seems to good to be true that it can be machine washed and tumbled dry.
