Patagonia Wool 3 Zip Neck
For the past 15 years I've been wearing synthetic…
Fabric: Merino Wool
Price Paid: $75
For the past 15 years I've been wearing synthetic base layers for hiking (capilene and techwech). I've been curious about the new wool base layers and ordered this top as a test. I liked it so well that within a week I ordered another one and two for my wife.
I'm sold on this new wool. It's soft, breathes, wicks very well, does not hold odor and is lighter, but warmer for the weight than the synthetics. The fit is contoured with stretch, but not tight and form fitting. We hike year round and this is a great base layer for winter and will work well under a soft shell for spring and fall. A pit pricey, but we found ours on sale. It offers Patagonia quality, environmentally friendly materials, and is made in the USA.
Here's what other sites are saying:
Start your layering system with the midweight Patagonia Men's Wool 3 Long-Sleeve Zip-Neck on cold days. If you're just going for a brisk evening run, wear it solo, and unzip the neck when you warm up. When the temp drops, slip the Patagonia Wool 3 Zip-Neck under a stretchy softshell for ice climbing, or wear it under a trim hard shell for the slopes in springtime. Patagonia keeps their already luxe New Zealand merino wool soft by treating it with an eco-wash instead of the chlorine shock treatment other manufacturers use. Wool fights odor naturally, and it insulates even when wet, so you can replace a few of your old stinky synthetic tops with one Wool 3 Zip-Neck.
