No better than a synthetic bottom layer.

Worse than a synthetic bottom layer. Worse, because wool can absorb even more moisture than cotton. It's one thing that (supposedly) wool is pleasant to wear even when wet... but the task of the bottom layer would be to drain away sweat, and wool fabric is not suitable for this. It didn't work for me, I took it back. In addition, wool, even mixed fiber, cannot be as close-fitting as 100% man-made, synthetic. That is, it stops - so it is even more unsuitable for draining sweat. I tried 5 wool (mixed wool fiber) underwear and "long-sleeved hiking shirts" from the Decathlon range, and none of them were close-fitting. It might be good for you to stay in this hotel or to sleep in this sleeping bag. I definitely do not recommend wearing it during a tour.

The hat covering the thumb could be a little longer. The magnets should have a little more power to hold the removable part better. The 2 loops for removing gloves fulfill their function well. Removing the glove is easy. Gloves bought to be able to use my camera quickly.

Additional Product Information

Composition

Main fabric: 86.0% Wool, 14.0% Polyamide ; Yoke: 98.0% Wool, 2.0% Polyamide

Odour control

The components used reduce bad odours. Laboratory tested to standard ISO 17299-3.

Reduction of the freezing effect

After exercise and sweating heavily, Merino wool prevents evaporation helping to maintain body temperature by absorbing the majority of the body's moisture. This therefore reduces any unpleasant chilling effect.Conversely, a synthetic material lets the body temperature go back down again faster.

Tip before use

For a softer feel, wash your t-shirt before first use.

How to wash your t-shirt made with merino wool?

We recommend that you machine wash your MT500 MERINO ZIP T-shirt at 30° on a normal cycle, preferably with liquid detergent. Dry flat and NEVER tumble dry unless you want it to shrink by one or two sizes!For more information: https://support.decathlon.co.uk/how-to-maintain-a-merino-wool-garment

Product testing

In November 2018, 8 trekkers (4 men and 4 women) and part of the Forclaz design team tested this T-shirt for four days in the Southern French Alps (Lus La Croix Haute). You can expect wind, rain, a bit of snow, a bivouac... and a lot of fun! We were then able to make the final modifications and validate it for mountain trekking use.
