With the same benefits as the Merino Core Zip-T, the SITKA Merino Core 1 Bottom, Charcoal (10010-CH) makes a perfect base layer from a snowy grind in the Rockies to a frigid Midwest stand.
The benefits of Merino Wool have long been appreciated in high performance athletic wear, and used in activities such as running, hiking, skiing and cycling. Since merino is naturally odor resistant, it is an ideal fit for hunting.
Merino is also excellent at regulating body temperature, especially when worn directly against the skin. The wool provides some warmth without overheating the wearer, and also wicks moisture which makes it comfortable against the skin.
Measuring just below 19 microns, Merino fabrics are circular knit. This ensures less abrasion on the fabric face and better pilling performance and durability.
