Ease of temperature regulation.

Equal parts lightweight and warm, the Stoic Men's Merino Lightweight 1/4 Zip Top offers unimpeded performance and versatility. This top features a quarter-zip construction for easy temperature regulation, while the 100% merino wool construction wicks away moisture and dries quickly. Not to mention, merino wool is naturally odor-resistant, so you can forget about smelling akin to an old gym locker when you're done with your workout or ski tour.

Great wool base layer at a good price. Comfortable, warm, good fit. If I am layering up I always use this and the Stoic Merino Lightweight Bottom - Men's to start. Bought my whole family these as gifts and they love them as well! Highly recommend.

Surprisingly awesome

When buying things at a low price like this, it is easy to be skeptical. Comparable merino tops go for 105-110. This one starts at 90 but frequently goes on sale! Don't buy this item full price, as it is frequently discounted 15% or more. I picked one up on sale and was blown away at the quality. This is now my primary ski touring base layer. It has an athletic fit, and I could have gone with a large but enjoy the next-to-skin fit of the medium, and the sleeves are plenty long enough. The wicking and temperature regulation are exactly what you would expect from a 100% merino garment. I own similar smartwool pieces and this pieces is just as good if not better and has thumb holes! The thumb holes are great for touring without gloves, as they keep your palms off of your cold pole handles but allow your fingers to breath freely. If you are active outside in cooler temps, do yourself a favor and get this shirt.

Merino at a Great Price

You really can't beat merino wool when it comes to baselayers. It keeps you warm, breathes, wicks moisture, and resists odor naturally. I bought this for my brother, he uses it to snowboard in , climb in , and even lift at the gym. He loves it. I have the same women's version .

Can't go wrong with Merino

Great product that keeps me warm. Wicks well.

Is that Merino?

  • Size Bought: M

Yeah, you were right, 100% merino here to save the day. it is lightweight in name, but a heavy hitter for me, keeps me plenty warm walking around in the early spring temperatures with a t-shirt underneath. My favorite layer currently. Warm, super comfortable, and breathes incredibly well!

True to size definitely, purchased a M and it is a little small on me, but I usually wear a L.

Amazing Value

This is the best value in merino wool underlayers. The Stoic brand is a reliable staple in my closet and I use it for everything from cross-country skiing to Winter fly fishing.

This is a must have baselayer for any Winter activity.

I bought a couple sets of these baselayers, because I loved how cozy warm the merino was, how warm they stayed when wet and how they are almost stink proff. I have bought other merino baselayers before that were really thin and flimsy but these are very substantial.
