This midweight top can be worn on its own, or under fleece and shell clothing in cooler weather. It tucks easily into a daypack or backpack to carry as spare insulation. The Malden Mills Power Dry® fabric offers excellent moisture management - the soft inner layer rapidly wicks moisture away from the body, while the outer layer spreads it out for quick evaporation.

* Malden Mills Power Dry® fabric is 98% polyester, which is quick-drying and non-allergenic, and 2% spandex, which provides a snug, non-restrictive fit.
* Turtleneck design provides warmth for the body core and arms as well as for the neck, an area of high heat loss.
* A zipper at the neck lets you regulate your warmth and vent excess heat.
* Flat seams eliminate chafe.
* Sewn in Canada, fabric from USA.

Black or Dark Ash (shown). Womens fit version also available.

It's a simple functional long underwear top that wicks moisture and keeps your temperature regulated in all conditions. It layers well and it's comfortable too. Zip help to vent when necessary. What more could you want? Oh yeah - it's cheap! Less than half the price of some others. Why pay more? It's just underwear!!! Now you can afford to get a couple of pairs and not stink your climbing partner out on long haul trips. They'll thank you for it :-)

I wear one of these for everything from summer dog walks (as a shirt) to spring summit slogs (as a base layer). A no nonsense performance shirt at a sane price.
