I've been transitioning away from Capilene and synthetics the past few years and wore an Icebreaker Tech Zip T 260 wt. (midweight) most of the winter and early spring. I was so impressed with the comfort and durability of the fabric that I just had to try the merino wool Short Sleeve Tech Tee.
I ordered two and lo and behold these are incredible baselayer/active tee shirts. They are incredibly comfortable and the 190 weight has some 'added' process which makes the fabric smooth and comfortable with incredible wicking and NO STINK.
Being that the Tech Tees worked so well, I recently ordered an Icebreaker Hopper Short Sleeve T-shirt and am awaiting its arrival.
Not only do I like high quality merino wool for climbing 14ers, snowshoeing, backcountry hikes and climbs, I also enjoy wearing the fabric around town. I am a total convert to merino wool and especially the wools from Icebreaker!
