User Review: Patagonia Men's Merino 2 Lightweight Crew
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $54
Everyone should have a base layer like this!!
- Very breathable
- Does not hold body odor
- Soft and comfortable
- Dries fast
I never thought I would ever spend $50+ on a base layer. I am glad I did!!
I have used this base layer for over 4 years now and it is still good as new.
I wear this shirt while hiking as a T-shirt when it is warm and as a base layer while hiking when it is cold. It is very comfortable and soft. It is very, very breathable. It wicks sweat away from the body and sweat evaporates off it very fast. The main thing I love about this base layer is it minimizes friction between a heavy backpack and your body.
It is just a simple shirt that provides wonderful functionality. I highly recommend every backpacker/hiker use a shirt like this as a base layer.
