I've been wearing this as part of a layering system during the UK Autumn for a variety of hill walking in the Peak District. The weather has been often wet and windy and occasionally bright but cold. I've also tried this out a few times on extremely cold and windy golf driving ranges (a new hobby!) in Cheshire.
This base layer is true to fit (I was wearing M/M) - close fitting with a good sleeve length. I do try to avoid pure merino wool as it does tend to irritate my neck. However, this 2-layer construction with LIFA® seemed to deal with this and I was perfectly comfortable.
I've certainly been warm and comfortable - this fabric combination is beautifully insulating and wicks moisture away very effectively. The close fitting hood is also a welcome addition when those winds blow!
Moreover, there was pretty well no odour retained in the fabric even after I'd worn it on several days.
Certainly not cheap, but an excellent investment that will serve well on colder days throughout the year.
