Verdict

Icebreaker Oasis Crewe Long Sleeve Running TeeThis lovely breathable long sleeved Icebreaker top is 100% made of merino wool, which is effective as it keeps you warm in the cold, but cool so you don't over heat. This fabric not only wicks moisture to manage sweat effectively but is non-itch through the flat seam stitching and is naturally odour-resistant, producing a comfortable and an excellent fit. The top itself is slim-fitting, which allows it to wick moisture away from your body and the sleeves are a good length. The cut is flattering as it's fitted, but not too skin tight, and allows plenty of freedom.

As said previously, the free seam stitching design has been well thought out as it avoids chafing, while the fine merino wool feels soft and stays fresh and odour-free during long runs! The fabric is machine washable and also dries very quickly.

For me, I like how light the top feels on my skin. Usually when you think of wool, you'd think of something quite heavy, but this top is extremely lightweight. I'm a big fan of the raglan sleeves, giving you plenty of freedom for movement, as I do find long sleeve tops to be a bit snug on the arms occasionally. I also like the subtle yellow neckline giving the top a little bit more colour variety.

When I have worn it running I have found it keeps me warm underneath a waterproof running jacket but can also endure a little bit of rain on its own too.

My only criticism would be that I wouldn't be able to wear it in the lead up to summer!
