Have used this shirt as a baselayer and it worked great under a rain shell in 35+ degree weather. I used it today on a trail run alone and it was great. Kept me comfortable even with a little sweat. On the downhill home it was already pretty dried out so kept me warm as the speed picked up. I have other base layers from Patagonia and this seems just as well made and performs equally

Husband loves it.
Merino is always expensive but this top is a good fit and keeps my husband warm without bulk. It doesn't itch and doesn't smell (always a plus:). He wasn't sure about the zip up around the neck but didn't find it confining. He was happy with the addition.
Perfect baselayer for cold windy days
Cuts the wind and helps keep you dry. Polyster helps with dry time and wool quality is plenty soft.
have not tried kit yet in cold weather
One of my favorite tops.
Warm, wicking & comfy
Excellent all around baselayer
Have been using for a year in field and have been pleased with performance. Comfortable against skin, excellent climate control, decent moisture management, and overall low odor. Worn as a baselayer for all inbounds and backcountry skiing. Comfortable enough to sleep in too. The short sleeve makes a great hiking shirt in the spring/summer. I've been a merino baselayer fan for years, but I prefer the blended fiber here because it is much more durable and snag resistant. I always poke holes in my 100% merino items, which is annoying given how expensive they are. These perform as well and will last a lot longer, and for the price of one 100% merino crew from other brands I can get a whole baselayer kit here.
Comfortable and less scratchy than other merino shirts, but still a touch scratchy for those sensitive to wool. Fit is a bit baggy for a first layer, but my height (6'2") dictates a Large. Great odor resistance, and cheaper than competitors = a great deal. These should be offered in their stores, but they said they will not get it which is a shame.
"Midweight"? More like FEATHERWEIGHT.
I ordered this because I wanted a MIDweight base layer - not a bulky Expedition weight garment but something substantial enough for cold weather hunting & backcountry trips. The tiny package told the story - this is a lightweight fabric (at a heavyweight price). You can literally see your hand thru the fabric. I sent it back immediately. This should be renamed "Super Light Weight Base Layer".
