I bought this after a luge amount of research on good mid layers. I ski a lot living close to the Spanish pyrenees, and now use a shell jacket only. I wanted a mid layer, to heart with a t shirt type base layer and then the shell. This is merino but wicks very very well (as they don't always), is very comfortable indeed. It is long at the back which is perfect for keeping out the cold and has great them loops if you need them. Highly recommended.
