WTB: Merino baselayers, Size Small on 01/15/2013 08:01:35 MST Print View

Hey all.

I'd like to add a few merino baselayers to my wardrobe. I'm not opposed to buying used, so long as the shirts haven't been torn to shreds or shrunk beyond belief.

Specifically, I'm looking for the Smartwool Midweight Crew and Patagonia Merino 3 Long Sleeve Crew. Colors don't matter to me.

Please get a hold of me if you have any of these lying around that you could stand to part with. I'm open to other non-Icebreaker baselayers if you have 'em.

Thanks in advance!

Merino baselayers have two problems: price and durability. (I'll leave the moisture management debate for a different place.) With durability as a potential issue, used merino might not be the best way to go. Check out Sierra Trading Post for some good deals on new merino. I'm partial to Icebreaker but you can't go wrong. A little Spandex woven into the blend radically improves durability.
