Smarter Than Patagonia Capilene Air

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

Will test it in my next trip to Yellowstone, Grand Teton, and Glacier this August. At first glance, Smartwool 250 feels smarter and sturdier than the Patagonia Capilene Air I have

Best Baselayer

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

Used on a trip to Boston. Temperatures mostly in the 60s and felt comfortable to wear by itself. I am 5’10” and 160 pounds and the medium felt just right. I liked the slight longer length that stayed tucked in. I hope to use it in colder temperatures on future trips. Also looking to get the 150 for comparison. Also used another brand that was 50% merino and 50% polyester but the wool felt much more comfortable.

Love it!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

This is my first baselayer from Smartwool and I love it. Feels great, fits great and it is very warm. I'll get more of these for sure.

Love the fit

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Small

I am 5'6, 145 lbs and this baselayer fits me well. I especially like the slightly longer hem.

Love it

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I bought mine for a 3 week long trekking trip and they did not disappoint. Besides the fact that it's very comfortable It kept me dry and odorless.

Cozy

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I thought base layers were supposed to be thin things that were awkward to wear just as a shirt. But the 250 is a dream come true. It is a base layer still (100% wool mind you) but its thick enough to wear as a calm shirt outside or around the house, especially while watching a movie. I love this Shirt.

Nice Product

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: large and medium

Finally wore 2 of them out of commission a couple years ago. Some years of almost everyday use. Hot or cold. Snow. River. Tried off brand merino shirts for a while. OK. Not great. SmartWool quality seems about the same as before. Sizes are a bit off for a base layer..
5'11" 195lbs
Tried medium and large
Med. Tight enough for base. Sleeves too short
LG. Loose. Sleeves right length
Very comfortable material none the less

Not the right forum I presume. But through the exchange
process with Backcountry.com.
Some of the best customer service
in modern times. You get a human on the phone. Really nice people.

Quality product
Excellent sevice
Thank you Backcountry.

Great Base Layer

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Very comfortable and a great base layer. I like this product because not only is it soft but keeps you warm and is not bulky. I have worn this snowboarding and it kept me warm. It is very durable and looks great after several washings. I would definitely recommend this product for someone who is looking for a crew base layer that can also be worn alone or as a layer.

Great Base Layer

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

I'm 6'2" 175lbs with an athletic build. I bought this and the matching bottoms in size Large. The top fits perfect. The bottoms are a little loose but the right length. They are very comfortable and warm. Great base layer for snowboarding, I highly recommend.

Fits very well + provides lots of warmth

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: S

I am 5'7" about 150 lbs and have 3 of these. They wear very comfortably - just the right fit so they aren't loose enough to notice or tight enough to compress against your skin. So I hardly feel them when I'm wearing them, but am a lot warmer, and can wear them under other clothes without any extra bulk being visible.

Warm thermal

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit: True to size

Great fit. Very comfortable. Kept my husband warm while snowboarding. He wore it as a layering piece when it was 10 degrees and he stayed warm!

I have three of these now. Great shirt!

A long time ago I stumbled onto merino when I was stinking up synthetic shirts almost instantly. I got a deal on a merino shirt from a Smartwool competitor and liked it a lot. (I still have it and it's 15 years old.) But the prices on that brand skyrocketed and that led me to Smartwool.

While not inexpensive, you do get what you pay for in this case. They're comfortable, long lasting, warm and they fit. I had a retirement job at REI and when there I bought my first two Smartwool shirts and a pair of long underwear bottoms and a ton of socks. The quality of all of it shines and, as I said, it's well worth the money.

I live in the damp, chilly Pacific Northwest. I wear this shirt a lot and I wear Smartwool socks much of the year. Highly recommended!

Love this product!

    Soft, lightweight, next-to-body comfort. Super warm and not itchy. I will definitely be buying more smartwool. 6’2” ~190 lbs. Large fits perfect. Haven’t washed yet

    Good clothe!

      Good fabric, soft and really keeps you warm, that's what my father said. Excellent for hiking specially in really cold mountains or weather. Fits perfectly and really comfortable to use and very fresh even when there's sweat.

      Nice Piece, TERRIBLE sizing

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: Small

      The construction, quality and feel of this shirt is great, no complaints there. But, and this is a huge but for a thermal base layer, the sizing is ridiculous. The size small I bought fits super loose in the arms and stomach. I'm 5'7" 145lbs, normal build and size small almost always fits well. Some brands small is even too small for me occasionally. Is Smartwool using the vanity fat american sizing system? What a bummer...

      smart wool is the best, stay warm and dry!

      Patagonia-tested!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium

      Wore for 5 straight days while hiking the W in Patagonia and it was worth every penny! It's comfy, warm and resists odors fairly well even after multiple days of heavy use. Would recommend if you have room in your budget.

      Great for cold!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size

      These were given as a gift but heard they held up well in the frigid Canada conditions. They said they would definitely get another one down the road and that the size was true.

      the heavy weight

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: medium

      has the weight of a heavy sweater. warm and cozy. fits true to size and moves with your body. the wool prevents the stink so great for long trips with just one pair.
