Whether you're attempting a backcountry best up Frisco Peak or holding down the fort during a chaotic day care, the Icebreaker Men's Apex Crewe gives you the style and function to pull it off. Accented with inset racing stripe sleeves and a close-to-the-body athletic fit, only committed cold weather enthusiasts need apply. Designed in eco-friendly Merino wool fabric, this mid-layer crew neck shirt is the perfect activewear for alpine skiing and snowboarding, snow shoeing, climbing, and all-mountain winter weather. The Bodyfit260 fabric of the Apex Crewe has 25% more merino than Bodyfit200, so it's warmer and more resistant to odor during active adventures. Its drop-tail design avoids waist gap when extremely active, sleeve thump holes cover the wrists for added warmth, and a athletic fit gives versatile style. This shirt's close-to-body design with mobile set-in seam, no-rub flatlock seams, and low-bulk merino wool ensures you layer for warmth when the temps drop, and make every move – ready set go!

Winter is no match
February 21, 2012

This is my third Icebreaker top for cold weather running. The 260g/m weight is an excellent mid layer for colder days. On the coldest days - which in Cleveland, OH get pretty cold - I comfortably run with an Icebreaker 200g shirt beneath a 320g vest with a Mammut wind-proof softshell on top. Less frigid days are handled with the 200g shirt and vest combo. This shirt (the 260g) is ideal with a tee-shirt or alone on cold to cool days. I can't say enough good things about my Icebreaker gear. The merino wool truly does retain its thermal qualities even when wet and I only wash this gear about once every 5 or 6 uses. It honestly never really stinks and could probably go longer without a wash. Note: do avoid the clothes dryer with this material! This is great gear. It trivializes the cold. Get it! By the way, this specific shirt in size Medium fits my 5'-10", 190 lbs athletic frame, perfectly. It's not at all tight but fits like a tailored shirt. On the other hand, my 200g shirt in size Large fits more snugly owing IMO, to it's lower density. [chest: 42"' waist: 32"]

Great Baselayer
January 29, 2012

I had been looking for a good base/mid layer for outdoor activities, specifically snowboarding. I had gotten some Icebreaker ski socks and was impressed so I was very confident in buying one of their other product lines. I started with the terrain zip and was very impressed, however, I don't like things tight around my neck and that shirt (zipped up) was too restrictive for my taste. So I got the Apex Crewe and want another. Fit -- This is the "body-fit" line so expect it to be more form fitting. Isn't a dry-fit type spandex feel, just not a lot of extra fabric which makes it great as a base-layer. There is no bunching so wearing it under a jacket is perfect. If you have a less-than-stellar body, then it may not be the best outer garment. Comfort -- never want to take it off....not too warm (really just perfect), soft, not restrictive, does bunch or tangle around you as you move. Overall -- yes it is expensive. However, consider how much you pay for outer gear and then think, this is actually against my body and going to make or break my day. Spend the money on what is going to make your day better and don't look back. Thumb holes keep sleeves from coming up, fit is perfect, merino wool perfection for outdoor garments. Not bad styling either. If you don't have the best body and want to use it more as an outer garment, go a size up. I'm 6'1" 195lb and usually wear large shirts, got a large, and it was perfect. Does show through a little in terms of your own "natural" insulation but I got it as a base-layer and not as a out-on-the-town shirt.

Icebreaker Men's Apex Crewe

This wool pull over is awesome! Great for a post run sweater on chilly days and as a tech top on colder days. The thumb loops make it easy to pull on a jacket over with having to fuss with the sleeves

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance
