I’ve found myself ranting to people I’ve just met about the qualities of this t-shirt, the Smartwool Merino 150. I like it that much.
As the name suggests, it’s made using merino (56%), that special type of wool from the eponymously named breed of sheep. To bring a bit of extra durability to the garment’s construction there’s polyester (44%) in the weave as well. It’s a combination which makes for a t-shirt that, as I’ve certainly found, does a lot of the things you want a t-shirt to do for you.
I’ve used this a lot over the last summer. I’ve worn it for long distance walks and weekend wild camps, I’ve slept in it, run in it, and been to meetings in it. Sometimes I’ve been for a run and then gone to a meeting in it. In fact, I would happily wear this every day if society wasn’t so judgemental about that kind of thing.
It appears my enthusiasm for it is starting to influence others as well. As I write this, my colleague is sat next to me in the exact same t-shirt. Here we are, two guys sat side-by-side in the same black Smartwool t-shirt, jeans and hiking boots get-up.
