Why We Built The Spruces Merino Baselayer 1/4-Zip Top

Whether our toy of choice be skis, snowboard, or snowshoes, the Backcountry Matilda Baselayer 1/4-Zip Top is there to keep us warm and dry. It features a blended fabric, which wraps merino wool around a durable nylon core, offering a soft touch that's ready for action. An ideal baselayer, wool helps us regulate body temperature, wicks moisture away from our skin, and is naturally odor-resistant.

  • Temperature regulating top for backcountry pursuits
  • Innovative wool blend is warm, wicking, and durable
  • Quarter-zip neck can be opened for extra ventilation
  • Naturally-odor resistant fabric can be worn multiple days
  • Flatlock seams deliver smooth, chafe-free comfort
  • Next-to-skin fit provides easy layering options

I live in an area that is so cold that we call base layers long underwear because it is exactly that. I wake up and put on my base layers every day just like underwear. So Ive tried them all. Here is how I rate them. Backcountry Merino wool base layers are my number one overall choice for warmth, looks, pilling and wear, no-ich, no-smell, and still looking great wash after wash. A close second is Kari Traa 100% wool baselayers they are super beautiful however the embroidered label on the leg starts to ich during hiking. They are just slightly less warm but are equal for all other areas. The original Smartwool Merino wool comes in third but they are terribly plain to look at and dont launder quite as well. I wont repurchase the Smartwool Intra-knit version again as it is unforgiving on the skin particularly knees and elbows and pills after washing. They can become sweaty and not very warm especially at altitude. Terramar polyester baselayers cause unwanted and problematic moisture in your private areas, dont buy them. Terramar wool baselayers are warm but very itchy. Just as a side note I tend to cold wash and line dry my baselayers.

Runs small

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: L

Seems like a great weight, but it is too tight.

Classy top

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: s

Love the fit, the colors and the comfort. Both sporty and could wear out and look very pulled together.

Perfect base layer

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: M

Runs a little small, but perfect otherwise. Warm but breathable, wicks away sweat like a champ. I wear it as my base layer for skiing, and it’s perfect for aprés as well. Highly recommend.

Feels Small

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: S

I am a small in everything - 5'6", 120 pounds, but this S, feels like an XS, if they had the M, I would exchange for that. It is very soft. I just didn't like how tight it looked. It could be the girls, I am busty, should have sized up.

Can do no wrong!

This baselayer is PERFECT. Great for layering at the mountain or wearing as performance top for cold weather running, hiking or biking. The quality, construction and fit is amazing and the merino is a soft next to skin feel with absolutely no itch factor! Highly recommend this baselayer!

Excellent fit, quality and breathability

  • Size Bought: M

Love this thing! Went on a cold mtb ride and was very comfortable with it as its own layer. Also tried it out on the ski hill and kept me very warm in frigid (19degrees) weather. On top of that, it feels very well made and seems like it will be durable. I got the medium and it fits perfectly and on top of it, is very flattering! Bravo, Backcountry!
