Love love love Icebreaker stuff I stock steapandcheap.com for icebreaker crews, T's and baselayers , have 3 of their shirts really like the 190-200 weight use the long sleaves for both snowboarding and spring/fall backpacking on the north shore. Quality Merino really is magic material , keeps me cool when it's hot and warm when it's cool and stinks way less than synthetics, I normally wear my IB's 2-3 times before washing under every day conditions and now the girlfriend has started to wear them(not cool) because their so cumfy and great at controlling body temp. Have tried generic, backcountry(pre-stoic) and stoic brands their nice but not quite as nice as the IB. I can't afford full price but my goal is to have one for each day of the week.
