Combine unparalleled warmth with wind protection and you get the Men's Smartwool Lightweight Wind Zip-T, a wool baselayer that offers more than just luxurious comfort and movie star good looks. Merino wool is warm and breathable and has unique moisture managing properties that keep you dry and comfortable when you work up a sweat, while a wind resistant front panel creates a performance shirt that will go the extra mile. Sculpted side panels eliminate a side seam for reduced chafing and a body enhancing fit, and contoured sleeve cuffs and a drop tail bottom hem increase coverage for those extra chilly, windy days.

Kill two birds with one shirt
January 14, 2014

I bought this for a very specific use. It's my motorcycle baselayer for cooler temps. For that it seems to work wonderfully. Normally I would wear a base layer and if it's cold I would add something to break the wind. Now on a motorcycle this is only needed on the chest area, a 360 degree windproof garment only makes you sweat when it's underneath two other layers. The windproof barrier has a 1cfm rating, which for all intents and purposes is windproof. Sure, it's not 0cfm like gore windstopper but it's more than enough. It would work on a bicycle as the only barrier, so on a motorcycle at 75mph with a motorcycle jacket over it it works wonders. The merino wool itches the first time you wear, just bear it, it will go away after a while or after a wash. The collar does itch my neck, but on a bike I am constantly turning my head past my shoulders to check for traffic, this would not affect the vast majority of wearers. I'd love it if they made a crew neck version of this or if they offered the windproof layer on a heavier base layer. Merino wool is thin and delicate, it most likely would not last on a thru hike of the Appalachian trail but few garments will. Take care of it and it should last you a very long time. I personally do not like the "sporty or outdoorsy" color combinations, I prefer my garments in neutral or normal colors so that I can wear them out to dinner as well as during my adventures. I wish they made one in all black, but that's just being picky I guess. Cost is high, but I got it on sale for half off, even then it was a bit high but merino wool just isn't cheap. Fit is halfway between compression and loose. If your specific need can use this combination then this would be a great base or secondary layer.

Pros: Build quality, Performance, multiuse, Cons: Cost
