Really comfortable, and look great. You could easily wear them out to a nice restaurant the day before boarding. Really comfortable, with all the benefits of Marino. I bought 3 shirts, and 2 pairs of pants. Only downside is they are pricy.
I think you mean Merino wool.

Smartwool is all merino wool, I find the tops a bit itchy (merino is much less itchy than regular wool, but is still a little abrasive) so I only get the pants. Of course I'm out of date as I bought 2-3 pairs 5-6 years ago and they are still in good condition with hundreds of days of use (from snowboarding, to hiking the Inca trail in Peru (incidentally Alpaca wool is very scratchy) and Iceland)
