Good wool layer with easy care


  • fit & feel
  • easy care
  • wears well


  • 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.

Another Smartwool favorite for versatility and functionality. The super soft Merino wool keeps you dry and comfortable from one thing to the next. The zip neck adds in functionality to help with breathability. The flattering princess seams and sleeve panels add comfort while eliminating backpack chafing.

Whether your morning consists of a jog, hike, ski tour, or espresso and a bit of relaxing at the coffee shop, maintain your body temperature in Smartwool's Lightweight 195 Printed Zip-Neck Top for Women. This do-anything top's natural merino wool fibers move moisture while it is still in vapor form (before it has a chance to condense on your skin) so you stay drier and more comfortable throughout your entire workout. Cozy in winter and comfortable in warmer conditions, this top features an invisible zipper on the collar for increased ventilation when you up the pace. Sculpted side panels with a tonal screenprint, and flatlock-seam construction reduce chafing, while contoured cuffs and a drop tail provide extra coverage. To top it off, wool's natural anti-microbial properties help prevent odors from accumulating.
