If it works for sheep.
When it comes to stop-and-go, hot-and-sweaty pursuits, look no further than the Arc'teryx Men's Satoro AR Crew Top to provide premium performance and temperature regulation. More specifically, this midweight baselayer features Nucliex STR 180 wool, which consists of merino fibers that are wrapped around a nylon filament to ultimately provide thermal efficiency and comfort. So, to translate that into layman's terms: the Satoro is constructed with a merino wool blend that wicks away moisture, dries quickly, provides subtle warmth, and is odor-resistant.

Merino Wool is why

Merino wool holds 30% of it's weight in moisture before your skin will feel any dampness. The spiral construction of the fabric also wicks moisture unreasonably quickly. With Arcteryx design, this is such an amazing base layer that will be a solution in your outdoor kit for years.
Great For Everyday Skiing
I have two sets of Satoro tops and bottoms in black for everyday skiing. They're great and are exactly what I was looking for. In warmer weather I have a Phase set I default to. The merino construction was an important factor if my choice of these. The price was a bit hard to initially swallow but I trust in the quality of Arc'teryx and these will last for many seasons to come. I have not experienced any itchiness like expressed by another reviewer here.

The fabric doesn't feel smooth
What are the care instructions for this product? Can I periodically use lanolin or conditioner to soften the product? I'm very sensitive to wool itching.
