Summary

Never forget that wool will never fail as an insulation layer. After hiking hard all day, put on a wool shirt to combat chill. I find after backpacking all day, a Pendleton shirt is a better layer than fleece at sundown in the mountains.

Pros

  • Wool is warm and regulates body temperature more effectively
  • Feels warmer

Cons

  • Some say pricey for a shirt: $85-110
  • Ultra lighters will balk at the weight, but it's a multipurpose item

Great selection of sizes and colors. Thousands of surfers after being chilled in the Pacific, throw on a T-shirt and a Pendleton and feel instant warmth. Breathes, warm when damp, and you don't look like a gear head geek.
