I bought this ice crew top, to go walking in and also to wear when I train outdoors in the winter time, I swing kettlebells out doors, and between sets you can cool down a bit too much in the winter months , so I tried the Ice crew, I wore it for a couple of days walking the dogs, then I trained for an hour wearing it and ran in it to see if it started to smell prior to washing it.
I was amazed that It was still odour free after all that working out, whereas the ordinary non merino wool Lifas tend to stink after a few hours wearing them.
I am going Skiing soon and will be wearing it then too, and I am pretty convinced this will be a good baselayer, we always wore the original polyester Lifas on winter warefare excercises when I was with the Royal Marines, though this newer merino wool mix is even better.
Good Kit !!
