Best tshirt for hikes ive ever owned

Ive used this shirt on 3 long hikes now and i can confidently say its the best shirt iver ever owned . I love the fabric and i love how there are breathable holes under the arms and at the back. I am regularly a large to xl and got a double xl and fits nice and loose as i dont like tight fitting shirts.

Not good for what I used it for

After reading reviews and description I thought it would be good for me when playing indoor sports but it isn't. It really hot and not very breathable. Could be good outdoors in summer months but let's see

Wool T-shirt

I really didn’t know what to expect from this Considering it’s at least three times cheaper than other sports brands when it’s sunny you feel so much nicer than Cotton or polyester I also love the ventilated back and stretch panels the cut is great too & not riding up on my back. . Iv not yet tried it out in the field but city life’s been great I’ll definitely buy more & other items from shop

worth buying

T Shirt is comfortable can be used for 5 to six days trekking

I wore this merino T-shirt during Annapurna Base Camp trek in Nepal last 2 weeks as an innermost layer. It is very comfortable, warm, very breathable and dries very quickly. No odor despite repeated use. An awesome product. Can't wait to use it again

Tohle triko jsem používal jak v Tatrách s těžkým baglem na zádech, tak jako první vrstvu když jsem byl pouštět s dcerou draka, a nikdy nesklamalo

Super triko na trek...

Vynikající zpracování, příjemný materiál.

Für meinen Sohn, er hat das gleiche Shirt schon und ist sehr zufrieden, weil man trocken und "geruchsfrei" bleibt. Leider ein Auslaufmodell, habe nur mehr ein Exemplar eine Größe größer ergattert.

Additional Product Information


Main fabric

  • 11% Polyamide
  • 89% Wool


  • 10% Spandex
  • 24% Polyamide
  • 66% Wool

Sizing and fit

This T-shirt has a slightly fitted sports cut to help wick away moisture to the outside of the fabric. Choose your usual size or 1 size up if you prefer a looser-fitting T-shirt.


We used a beta-spun yarn structure in which the polyamide filaments form a fine sheath around the Merino wool fibers. This protects the wool fibers from friction and cuts without altering their properties.

Origin of the merino wool

For this product, we only use wool from Merino sheep raised on farms in South Africa that do not practice mulesing. We decided to build a partnership with a group of breeders (Konsortium Merino) to guarantee respect for animal welfare and the environment. This means we have full traceability, which allows us to guarantee the origin of the wool. More information: Visit our website

Odor control

The materials used reduce bad odors. Laboratory tested according to the ISO 17299-3 standard. Main fabric: 89% Merino wool Mesh panels and a mesh fabric under the arms and in the middle of the back: 66% Merino wool, 24% Polyamide, 10% spandex.

Reduction of the freezing effect

When you make a physical effort and sweat heavily, the Merino wool easily traps the insulating warm air and can absorb up to 35% of its weight in moisture without making you feel damp, which is appreciable in cold weather. In hot, dry weather, the evaporation of the water in the wool absorbs energy, which cools the body slightly at the same time.

Tip before use

For a softer feel, wash your T-shirt before 1st use.

How to wash your merino wool t-shirt

We recommend that you machine wash your Merino wool T-shirt at 86°F on a normal cycle, preferably with liquid detergent. Dry flat and never tumble dry unless you want it to shrink by 1 or 2 sizes! more information on:
