Backpacking Light Merino UL Short-Sleeve Shirt (CLOSEOUT)

Ultralight merino for next to skin wear.

Overview

What do you get when you cross an anorexic sheep with a designer of backpacking gear?

The lightest weight superfine merino wool in the world: 115 g/m2.

Backpacking Light has introduced this fabric in its new Merino UL line that includes a short sleeved shirt, a long-sleeved shirt, and long john bottoms.

These items are meant to be worn next to skin so you realize the maximum benefits of ultralight merino: moisture management, thermoregulation, odor resistance, and comfort.

Limitations: Merino wool this light does not come without limitations. These garments cannot withstand the repeated abrasion of pack straps from a heavy backpack, and they cannot resist the attacks of thorns, briars, or devil's club. They are less durable than a synthetic (nylon or polyester) garment of a similar weight, and require the utmost care in washing for maximum life expectancy: use wool cleaner and hand wash only for best results.

However, for the skilled backcountry traveler adept at caring for their gear, you'll find that the benefits of Merino UL will far outweight these disadvantages because of the comfort offered by wearing such lightweight merino.

Features:

  • Superfine merino fibers minimize skin irritation
  • Ultralight knit construction offers superior breathability and thinness for high exertion and warm temperatures
  • Simple design keeps the weight down
  • Merino fiber protein chemistry results in superior thermoregulation
  • Merino fiber absorbency results in superior moisture management and odor control

Specifications:

  • Color: Nomoon Black
  • Sizes: S, M, L, XL
  • Weight: 3.9 oz - 4.7 oz (105 - 133 g)
