Nice product... be aware runs very small

This product was reasonably priced and appears to be well made. My problem is that it is significantly smaller than I would have expected. I am keeping the shirt but, it will only be worn as a base layer.

More colors please!

This shirt feels and looks great and is as light as air. I got it in blue and will get yellow as well when they restock. I would probably buy more if other colors were available

High quaiity T-Shirt, fits well, holds shape

Compared to more expensive alternatives, this T-Shirt holds up surprisingly well. My favorite before this was a Patagonia merino tee, which they stopped making, and I'm shocked to say that this is nearly the same quality and offers the same performace. The sleeve holes are the perfect shape, they don't stick out to the side even with my super-skinny muscle-less arms. The neck hole is tight and doesn't warp. Last camping trip I went on a very sweaty hike (I sweat A LOT) and this shirt was dry after a few minutes. Against my better judgement, I also slept in it, then went on another sweaty hike the next day. By the time I got home and started washing my camping laundry, I couldn't tell which shirt I had worn, it passed a very discerning smell-test. My only criticism is the silly logo on the front. Why? What is "World Tour Travellers" and why should I care about it? I'd buy 5 more of these right now if they didn't have that darn logo...

Really nice Shirt

While it isn't 100% Merino $25 for 70% Merino is great. The T-Shirt keeps you both cool & warm, plus it doesn't stink. The sizing runs very small I had to purchase a 2XL so it would fit me nicely. However, if you know that then you should be fine.

Poor quality

The shirt has developed three small holes on the chest, after only being worn 5-10 times and only washed a few times. Decathlon says this is normal wear and tear and not covered by warranty. I'd hate to know what this shirt would look like after a year or two of more rigorous use. Would not recommend!

Too small

This mens small size didn’t even fit my teenager. Sent it back for a refund. The quality was average but that’s reflected in the price

Very thin, cheap Chinese wool 70%

Not durable, very light and thin, better buy from other proven seller. Been buying and selling 100's of T Shirts.

Not very durable

The material feels nice and the cut isn't bad, but unfortunately these aren't very durable. I've got 5 or 6 of them, but most of them have now worn through on the back where my rucksack sits. That's in 1-2 years of intermittent use. I've got Rab shirts that are far older and are still fine - I guess you get what you pay for.

No Odour control after first wash - Smelly T

This is advertised as offering odour control and being a shirt for travelling and trekking. Apparently it has been tested by the team at Decathlon and show to reduce odours. I can confirm that prior to the first wash the T-Shirt offers improved odour control over that of a cotton T-Shirt. However once washed at a low temperature as indicated on the care label it looses all of the odour control. In fact it becomes worse than a cotton shirt as you can’t wash it high enough or use biological detergent to clean it. It must be the non merino element that smells and it is very unpleasant. Could I suggest that the decathlon team investigate this and re run their tests using shirts that have been worn and then washed. I am very upset as I am a big fan of decathlon and an even bigger fan of merino wool, low temperature washing and eco friendly washing products. I have one of these I have worn and before I realised the issue I bought four more. My local store told me that they couldn’t refund the purchases as I had taken the labels out and they couldn’t resell them. That’s the bit that really didn’t feel very fair or reasonable 😔
