Summary

Good wool layer with easy care

Pros

  • fit & feel
  • easy care
  • wears well

Cons

  • not for direct pack strap contact
  • neck a bit snug

This is a great under layer, or for single layer wear without a pack. It washes well and dries pretty fast. If you work up a sweat on the trail it doesn't wick super well and takes longer than other products to dry. Although dryer time after washing is pretty fast.

Fabric: merino wool

This is an excellent light base layer, and the zip-neck adds versatility as you can unzip to ventilate if you get warm. What they say about merino wool is true--it doesn't itch, feels drier than synthetics when you sweat in it, and takes a lot longer to start smelling ripe than synthetics. Besides, at least for me, the fact that it is a natural material is appealing.

I wear mine for hiking and trail running. The fit is just right and it can be washed and tumble dried without messing that up--shrinkage is minimal. I seldom wear my synthetic base layers anymore since trying Smartwool and similar products.
