This is a very lightweight base layer that feels great against the skin. When hiking I wear mine under a t-shirt (cool weather) or under a fleece (cold weather). I've worn it several days in a row before without it smelling.
One time I did a 5 day hiking trip and only realised at the trailhead that I'd forgotten my good raincoat. So I had to make do with the 10 year old not-really-waterproof-nylon-raincoat I keep in the car for emergencies. On day 5 it poured with rain and I got soaked through the old jacket but thanks to the Phase SL Crew top I didn't get too cold. By the end of the three hour drive home it had dried simply from my body heat.
I love mine so much I own 2 now.
