|Merino wool is fast becoming the standard for a lightweight high performance base layer and the Black Ovis merino zip T base layer shirt sets the standard for soft, warm and comfortable at a price that agrees with your wallet. No longer does a thermo-regulating base layer need to be super thick and bulky. Using 100% New Zealand Merino wool in the 190 gram weight (lightweight) it’s still surprisingly durable. From sitting in a cold Wisconsin tree-stand to moving quickly along a Montana ridgeline in pursuit of a trophy elk, the natural wicking properties of the merino will keep you warm and dry. Plus the added length of the shirt ensures it won’t come untucked throughout your hunt as you bend, climb, stretch and crawl to get that perfect shot. A generous 9″ zipper for cooling off add to the features. This base layer has been tested in situations from spot and stalk hunts, cold spring trail runs, summer scouting trips and winter tree stand hunts from Canada to Illinois. Inside and out it stands up and performs as any gear should.
