2007 Model No Longer Available
Icebreaker BodyFit260 Altitude Crew - Long-Sleeve - Men's - 2007 BCS
The Icebreaker Men's Altitude Crewe Long Underwear Top will take you higher. Layer this base layer under a fleece for backcountry ski trips. Its 260g/m2 BodyFit merino wool breathes well to regulate your temp on the way up, then insulates to keep you warm when you get to the top. Raglan sleeves and underarm gussets provide comfort and freedom of movement. When you're done skiing, stop by the pub on the way home. The Altitude's styling and slim fit makes it a great casual piece, and the anti-odor properties of the wool make sure you're stink free.

Was looking for a wool midweight and picked this up on SAC. Very happy with it and I dig the thumb holes. Looking at the retail price I am surprised it is made in China. Probably the most stylin piece of hikin gear I own.

i'm shopping for my brother who is going to new zealand for a sky diving boogie in the middle of winter, trying to find him a super warm thermal to wear under his jumpsuit, any suggestions???

This will be a good layering piece. I would get him this and a 150 weight to throw under it. That may sound bulky, but this clothing is designed to be layered. It functions like a second skin, so unlike a synthetic layer this will definitely wick any sweat from his body so he'll stay nice an dry. Their bottoms are great too, if he needs them. Also the wash and wear factor of this is nice, and it takes quite a bit of wearing to build up a smell anyway.
Bottom line: Do it! He'll be one happy jumper.

Submitted for your entertainment. NOTHING says cool like zip offs over silkweights. Good thing I am wearing this stylin top...
Also pic'd: Smartwool Training Beanie, Ex Officio Amphi pants, Thermarest Z-lite pad (on pack).
It's alright, but...

This wasn't quite what I was hoping for from IceBreaker. First a good point: I really like the thumb harnesses - they help to seal up the wrist area in cold weather. I wish that they were a standard (or at least optional) feature on other long-sleeve IceBreakers.
Two things that I didn't like so much: 1) the neck is wider (more open) than my other IceBreakers and 2) the seams around the elbows (which are only there for aesthetic purposes - to attach the colored fabric) are irritating on the inside of the arm.
I prefer the bodyfit 260 midweight hands down.
Nice, but a few complaints

EXACTLY the same complaints as below - the neck is just a bit too wide, and the seams on the sleeves are definitely noticeable. I still give it four stars, because otherwise its really comfortable and I think the fit is nice. Its hard to not like a merino piece! I wouldn't pay full price for this, but its worth the SAC price.
What is the difference between the Icebreaker BodyFit260 Altitude Crew and the BodyFit260 Slalom Crew?

High quality merino wool material, that does as advertised. Keeps you warm and does not smell bad.
but the cut and seam placement through the arms and the wide neck opening, both design options, bring the rating down a star. the piece would be better with straight seams and a typical head opening.

very nice, confortable and fits well. the material did make my inside elbows itch, but i wore a undershirt and that took care of that. the thumb holes are good, i have had some that cut of circulation, but no problems
Icebreaker BodyFit260 - fits perfectly

My first Icebreaker product and I really like it.
No complaints about the fit, neck size or seams.
I have yet to try it on the slopes as a base layer, but as its merino wool, I don't think I'll have any problems.

i now own 4 pieces of icebreaker base layer, and countless other brands. These are the bestthey're comfortable, wear well, wash easily. they don't retain odor and they're very nice looking garments. Yes, they're expensive. I think you get more than enough value out of them.
