Whether you're planning a multi-day backcountry trip or jetting off to a far-flung foreign land, there's one thing every savvy traveler knows: the right clothing can make or break a trip. More specifically, the right layering system is key and allows you to stay comfortable and adapt to changing, unpredictable conditions.
The best layer is an all-natural one: Merino wool. It’s what professional athletes use because of its technical performance benefits: it’s soft, insulates, wicks and traps sweat - so you stay dry and not clammy. This is especially important for safety reasons: wet clothes can lead to hypothermia in cold conditions.
- It is thin, lightweight and takes up very little room in a suitcase or backpack
- Superfine Merino is soft and cozy, not coarse or scratchy - so you'll always feel comfortable.
- The natural fibers regulate body temperature, keeping you "just right," regardless of unpredictable weather (on or off the plane)
- It is versatile - can be worn under clothing or on its own - for an easy stroll or high-performance athletic endeavors. Our crew can also been worn as a flattering top on its own. (Multi-purpose = less to pack.)
- It's naturally antibacterial, which means it doesn’t retain odor, so it doesn’t stink, even after long days or multiple uses. (AKA. Less laundry.)
