With any all merino garment, you basically have to accept the reality that the fabric is not as durable is many of straight up polypro base layers. However, if you follow the proper care, and hang dry as Icebreaker recommends, you will get plenty of life out of these pieces.

Merino wool is a bit more pricey than a lot of other baselayers, but is worth every penny. Once you go merino, you never go back. It regulates temperatures way better than cotton or polypro, doesn't stink, even when using it multiple days in a row. It is tremendously versatile. So much so that I have switched most of my tees and boxers to Icebreaker as well.

I am a wool convert. I have dropped all of my synthetic baselayers and go strictly Icebreaker these days. I have found the 200 weight to be the ideal weight for backcountry use where there is a good amount of aerobic activity. The wool regulates temperature extremely well, stays dry, and even when wet still provides warmth. If I am skiing in bounds, I still like the 200 weight as my base. I will go no zip neck though and switch to the Oasis Crewe from Icebreaker. Then toss on a 260 weight midlayer like the GT260 Rapid Zip. Makes a pretty sweet combo that is versatile in as temps go up and down. Wool layering system is the way to go. I have become very loyal to Icebreaker since I got my first piece 5 or 6 years ago

Review:Highly recommend going with an all merino wool, Icebreaker layering system. Tried and true.
