My work requires me to be outdoors no matter the weather and I have become quite the "expert" on layering, thermal underwear and cold weather gear. The new crop of "Under" brand garments mostly leave me cold - too slick against the skin with no air pockets to trap air for warming. The Kenyon Outlast products were a delightful find because they still have the loft (air pockets) to trap air for warming with a soft feel against the skin and an outer layer that really does keep me dry by allowing sweat to evaporate. Yes, everything they claim to be is true. Even better - they are MADE IN THE USA. Great product, good value, will definitely buy more as this type of thermal is getting hard to find.
I can't speak highly enough of Minus 33's 100% merino wool clothing! After scouring hundreds of online reviews, I purchased this Minus33 Women's 'Liberty' Merino Wool Lightweight 1/4-zip Base Layer Top in grey with the intention of thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail. This turned out to be my Every Day Shirt on the trail. Unless you try it, you just won't be able to believe how ideal this shirt is! The knit is fine and I did have to be careful to not catch it in the buckle of my hip belt. It feels like the softest thinnest t-shirt; not a single itch or scratch! What they say about Merino wool is true ... it does not hold body stink like synthetics do! The seams are all well made and comfortable. Never had any problems with the zipper. The sleeves are slightly on the long side but then I'm short and the sleeves served well to pull down over my hands somewhat when I didn't quite need gloves. This is NOT a heavy shirt! It's supremely lightweight. Machine wash and dry, too! (I was always sure to never dry hot) AND they have really big sizes! Just can't say enough good things about it! This is a hands down winner for me. It's going to last me forever, too!
