The Patagonia Women’s Merino 3 MW Zip-Neck is a warm base layer for cold weather hiking and climbing. A blend of 80% merino wool and 20% Capilene polyester works together to keep you warm by wicking away sweat and drying it out. The soft fabric is comfortable against your skin all day long, with underarm panels and stretch for easy movement. When the sun comes out and you’re working hard, vent the heat quickly with the long ¼ zip so you can continue on your quest.

Women's Fit Guide Details & Info
Patagonia's measurements refer to body size and NOT garment dimensions. Sorry for yelling about it.
Each Patagonia product is designed and shaped specifically for its intended use, and below are their generalized four fit descriptions, and details about each fit. The Patagonia fit for each style can be found in the product description features or specifications.
FORMFITTING • Conforms to the body's contours.
SLIM FIT • Closer-fitting. Slim-fitting technical garments may be worn over baselayers and light midlayers.
REGULAR FIT • Neither slim nor oversized. Regular-fitting technical garments may be worn over heavier midlayers. Men's regular fit pants have a slimmer fit through that thigh, lower leg, and cuff.
RELAXED FIT • Drapes loosely on the body. Men's relaxed fit pants have a bit of extra room through the hip, thigh, lower, and cuff.
CLASSIC BOY FIT • Boxy, athletic, with a traditional crew neck.
ANIKA FIT • Formfitting and longer in the torso, with a wider, deeper neck (not quite scoop).

Merino is brillant!Merino is such a great insulator and temperature regulator. I love the coral/eggplant color combination! It can be worn as just a light, casual sweater too, but just wish the zipper was just a little shorter...
