Product Description

Ask any backcountry traveler—layering is a science. That said, the Merino wool and Powerdry-blend Backcountry.com Men’s Prime Agnello Top is the mad scientist aiming to flip your whole worldview. The Prime Agnello Top’s Merino wool exterior holds warmth close, fending off light wind and moisture, while the Polartec PowerDry lining keeps the sauna effect to an absolute minimum when your heart picks up the pace. Wear this ¼ zip mid layer alone during trail runs or under a shell while you stomp out a skin track. The Prime Agnello’s naturally anti-microbial merino makes your polypro mid-layers seem more like the ever-stinky kid in class who can’t seem to figure out how to work a bar of soap—nobody wants to play with the stinky kid. Thumbholes in the Agnello Top’s cuffs take the bunch out of layering and the underarm and forearm stretch panels make for easy movement.

Dow Williamspretty big fan...

Voted 5/5

needed to replace what I use as a mid weight layer due to wear and tear on the old set. Incredible piece. Folks complain about it being to small or short. I think that must be because people are just getting more obese than anything. M seems to fit me like any medium would, kind of wide at the bottom really. Made the forearm tough and technical which is good for ice climbing, thumb hole and all. On sale as of 12/08.
