Specs per manufacturer: Merino wool fibers give this comfortable long sleeve tee the ability to manage moisture and dry quickly. A deep front zipper keeps you feeling cool and comfortable. Built-in FreshGuard odor neutralization allows you to wear it for days on end without developing a permanent stench.
Findings: This is my new favorite base layer. I wear it everywhere-snow shoeing, hiking, biking, camping and even to work. With some nice pants, I can pull it off as dress casual. As for stench repelling properties, well… Not to get too personal, it smells. But I have other wool shirts that smell way worse. So a better description would be to say it reduces odors, not eliminate them.
It is so soft you wouldn’t even know it had wool in it. I love the zip as a vent in the front. The shirt is cut form fitting making it easy to add extra layers on top without feeling like a stuffed pig. I give them shirt an enthusiastic two or three thumbs up! If I forgot to pack it on a trip, I would actually turn the car around to go back to the house for it!
