ioMerino Ultra Tee

rated 4 of 5 stars The Ultra Tee is a comfortable Merino wool T-shirt that’s great for hiking, running and global travel. I’ve been travelling for the last 18 months and the Ultra Tee has been a great shirt for working out on the road. My Usage Having minimal gear with me whilst travelling makes life so much easier. I like to try and stay healthy on the road and exercise regularly so I pack running shorts, my Altra Escalantes, and the Ultra Tee as my workout clothes. I throw on the Ultra Tee every couple of… Full review

Patagonia Sunshade Technical Hoody

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Fantastic option for sunny summer days when sunscreen is either not an option or not enough. I had the opportunity to test the Patagonia Sunshade Technical Hoody during the summer of 2018 in Northern New Hampshire. As someone with a tendency to burn during the summer while also running hot when wearing layers, I was eager to see how this shirt would perform and I was not disappointed by the result. Almost every time I went outside to fly fish, hike, bike, or hang out on the water, I ended up pulling… Full review

La Sportiva Forward T-Shirt

rated 4 of 5 stars The Forward T-Shirt from La Sportiva is a well-made, comfortable, technical quarter zip tee for trail running and other “high-output aerobic activities.” In my year and a half of use, I’ve found it to fit well, stretch and move with my body, and not cause any chafing (the bane of my running). Its Polygiene anti-bacterial/anti-odor treatment has excelled, with still no whiff of stink, despite many hot, sweaty miles. The Forward T-Shirt is best for running in warm weather. I find it most comfortable… Full review

Patagonia Women's Nine Trails Bike Jersey

rated 4 of 5 stars The Patagonia women's Nine Trails Bike Jersey is a versatile shirt that keeps me comfortable throughout long days on the trail. It layers well over a tank or short-sleeved tee, and under a wind shirt or other nylon-like outer layer. The three-quarter length sleeves are a nice feature that allow me to ride without the cuffs falling down onto my wrists and gloves. Avoid wearing the shirt under a fleece or other grabby material that could cause the sleeves to bunch. Testing Conditions: I tested the… Full review

Montane Dart Zip-Neck

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Montane Dart Zip-Neck is a long-sleeved synthetic shirt that is an ideal year-round base layer (a short-sleeved tee is also available). It wicks moisture away from the body very quickly, is exceptionally tailored, and protects the skin with a high UPF factor. If you’re looking to start your cold weather kit from skin out, I’d highly recommend it. Long-sleeve Dart Zip Neck on the left, short-sleeve Dart T-Shirt, also reviewed, on the right FIT AND COMFORT The Dart fits exactly as I would… Full review

Montane Dart T-Shirt

rated 4 of 5 stars The Montane Dart is a short-sleeved, synthetic shirt that is an ideal year-round base layer (a long sleeved, quarter zip is also available). It wicks moisture away from the body very quickly, is exceptionally tailored, and protects the skin with a high UPF factor. If you’re looking to start your kit from skin out, I’d highly recommend it. (Short sleeve tee on the right, quarter zip long sleeve on the left) FIT AND COMFORT The Dart fits exactly as I would design an active base layer to fit. Full review

Rab Men's Interval Tee

rated 5 of 5 stars Ultralight (half the weight of a typical cotton t-shirt), highly breathable, comfortable, wicking material...keeps you cool and dry on very hot days or when you are running, training, or working hard. Dries in a flash, looks great, doesn't smell, moves with your body, and saves a lot of weight in your pack. I have three Rab Interval Tees—one in "Ebony", one in "Ink", and one in  "Evergreen", all in Medium, which is the perfect size for me. Their weights vary...one is 79g, one is 80g and the other… Full review

OOFOS Recovery Gear 3/4 Zip

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This pullover is perfect as a lightweight hiking or biking layer. The Women's Recovery Gear 3/4 Zip pullover is a great option for a lightweight hiking/outdoor activity layer. It's moisture wicking and form-fitting without being snug. It's easy to just toss in my backpack or Jeep and leave it there. The long sleeves have thumb holes which I look for in pullovers; added warmth for someone like me whose hands get cold easily. This is a great additional to my outdoor fall wardrobe.   Disclosure:… Full review

Mountain Hardwear Butterman Hoody

rated 5 of 5 stars Smart enough for a base or shirt only I wanted a hooded base/shirt to wear with my hooded down jackets, so I bought two and they're just the ticket. Full review
