The road warrior's all-season essential, this zip-neck keeps you warm without overheating, makes sure you stay comfortable when you're on the move and doubles as sleepwear when plans go awry. Our most versatile merino baselayer, it's wonderfully soft and naturally odor-resistant. Built for active pursuits in cool-to-cold conditions, it breathes, stretches, regulates body temperature and has a great warmth-to-weight ratio. Our fine merino wool is responsibly sourced from the grasslands of Patagonia. We slow wash it for softness and shrink resistance, without the use of chlorine, then blend it with Capilene(R) polyester (100% recycled) for increased durability, dry times and moisture management. The sleeve design allows full shoulder mobility, elastic thumb loops keep sleeves in place and offset shoulder seams feel smooth beneath pack straps. Machine wash cold; machine dry at low temperatures. Fabric is bluesign(R) approved.
