I bought the royal blue color Tech Top. The color is beautiful. I initially thought my Tech Top was cut a bit on the "shorter" side, compared to my other Icebreaker tops, but I have been wearing it (for workouts mostly) and don't notice the length as much as I first did. I usually wear them 3-5 times before washing, and I have not noticed an odor, except when I'm sweaty and the fabric is damp - a wet wool smell - which, in my opinion, is not unpleasant or offensive. I have gotten a lot of compliments on the thumb loops, which are especially nice for layering. I haven't had any problem with my Icebreaker items pilling; although, I don't use a dryer, which might make a difference. I would buy it again if the price was right, but there are other Icebreaker tops I would pick over the Tech Top, if I was buying at full price. Still... a great BIG thumb's up!
