The price of wool! It's not cheap by all means and I was thinking if I really want to spend the money on it.
I used to wear only synthetic base layers before and still think they are better when I really work hard and sweat a lot. But this wool2 just feel great! I used it almost every day for about 4 mounts!
It's great next to skin, in terms of feel and warm, it is great when you just sit around, in town, sleeping in your tent up somewhere, or when hiking (didn't try it in very cold weather only in mild, and then I found it a bit too warm).
The only bad thing to say is it does get holes in it pretty fast. I had to chock it away after I had more holes then a shirt. But for how versatile it is, I'm happy to keep on buying it, ever few years, and use it year round, in town and out when trekking for long time.
It's also really light for how warm it is, so I don't mind carrying it around for evening use and around camp. It was my first wool item and since then I got few others.
Here's what other sites are saying:
Roll out of bed, pull on the Patagonia Men's Wool 2 Long-Sleeve Crew, and head out for a dawn trail run or ski tour. This lightweight, contoured-fit base layer keeps you dry like a synthetic top, but it naturally resists odors and insulates even when it's wet. Patagonia used an organic eco-wash to make the Wool 2 Crew base layer incredibly soft-other manufacturers use chlorine treatments. Patagonia gave this New Zealand merino wool base layer top a crewneck so that your chest isn't crowded with zippers when you're layered for a ski tour. Off-set seams prevent chafing underneath your ski bibs or backpack.
