Tech Top100% pure merino
, need I say more? OK, I will anyway: thumb loops for pulling on layers over it, side panels for flex and fit, long zip collar.
Trash your "turtlneck"
The tech top has a zip to cover the neck, or unzip to allow more venting/euro-style. 260g/sq.m is a perfect weight for a base layer. Can be used in conjunction with another merino layer and that's all you need under the shell/softshell. Stylish enough for casual wear or even going out to dinner.
Need a Lesson on Merino?Odor resistant
: wool is naturally antimicrobial. Throw it over the back of a chair, it's fresh by morning.
: This is the coat of an animal that can survive in just about any climate... Prevent overheating, no clammy feeling.
: Quality jersey knit will last long and can take abrasion.
: It ain't scared. Just dry carefully.
Merino is superior to synthetic in all ways except maybe durability.
Hey it's an underlayer, how durable do you need.
