        Ug - Strange New Version

              I've been buying/wearing Techwick items for years. EMS decided to do one of their occasional complete changes to this product line and this one is a mess. The fabic is a lighter, weird material with some stretchiness and this bizzarre, limp, heaviness to it. And the new fit is just strange. I tried to figure out a better way to describe the issues but I just keep coming away with this being the strangest shirt in both fit and fabric. It feels like some kind of outdoor performance wear project gone wrong.

              I bought a couple of these a couple of years ago, and I wish I had purchased several more. Last year I discovered the sizing or fitting of these or something had changed. Please go back to the old styling on these and I'll buy six of them. I wear a large and when I tried the new one on in the store, it was tight in some strange spots. Th XL is just too long and weird. My original shirts still fit perfectly. The store clerk said they often use different manufacturers, but this seems like a design change.

              I love these shirts, especially for travel. They keep their color and you can wash them and hang up to dry in an hour or two. However, I had to return all the new ones I just ordered because they are now SLIMMER FIT. I used to take XL but now I have to get a size larger. They should have warned us, or, better yet, KEEP THE OLD SIZING.

                I have purchased this same product in size large for a number of years, but the large size now is
                different,way too small and I was told that extra large is not available which is very dissapointing.I will now have to shop elsewere for a similar product.
                Delivery was prompt.

                Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Techwick Essentials Crew, S/S:

                In addition to skiing 35-45 days per season, I also guide downhill tours for a major Colorado ski resort. These shirts are my go-to base layer. They are comfortable, breathable, wick moisture, an keep me warm and dry on the coldest days. I've owned the previous version of this shirt for 7 years and they still wear great.

                After reading reviews on this latest version I was concerned that the new shirts would fit differently, so I ordered several sizes to see which fit best. I can report that I did not find the sizing of the latest version to be significantly different from the previous version of the shirt. I prefer by base layer to fit snuggly so as not to bunch underneath the outer layers, but not so tight as to restrict movement. I'm 6'0", weigh 165, with slim (atheletic :-))build, and the size S worked best for me. If I were using them alone as casual summer wear, I'd choose size M for the looser fit.

                The only negative I've had with the previous version of this shirt, and my reason for giving only 4 stars for the new version, is that the old material was prone to snags & pulls. The new shirt material appears to have a tighter weave, so I'm hoping it's more resistent to this kind of damage.

                I love the feel of the material and appreciate its ability to wick away sweat. An added bonus is that it so far has resisted holding a stink.

                    I live in Hawaii and travel to SE Asia frequently. This shirt is by far the best Garment I've ever bought. Very cool when your sweating. In fact I have been known to put water on this shirt and wear it... it's almost like air conditioning. Wish it came in more styles. The men's underwear are also unbeatable.

                      Basically the only tee shirts I wear anymore. Wicking is great, especially in Florida. Worth buying one size larger due to the new slimmer design.
