Incredibly soft and ridiculously warm, you have to try this shirt to fully comprehend its outstanding characteristics. Designed as a base layer for extreme cold weather climates. A blend of 70% alpaca and 30% merino means that you get the perfect combination of exceptional warmth and strength out of a mid-weight base-layer. Alpaca fiber is warmer, lighter and dries faster than traditional wool making this garment a must-have in the back-country hunter’s arsenal.

Product Description

Tradition meets innovation in this truly luxurious and unique garment. It is made from an alpaca/merino combination to create an exceptionally soft baselayer, ultimate in warmth and comfort.

Alpaca is a relatively underutilized fiber due to its high cost and low availability in comparison to standard merino. Alpaca fleece has a hollow core which makes it warmer, lighter weight and also allows increased moisture wicking capabilities.

Warmer than sheep’s wool:  Alpaca is a hollow fiber, where sheep wool has pockets of air.  Much like Polar Bear fur, the hollow fibers allow for heat to be trapped, creating greater thermal capacity.  Therefore, alpaca tends to be warmer than standard wool.

Merino is superior in tensile strength/flexibility which is why we constructed the Base Layer Hybrid Crew as a blend. The result is a combination of durability with greater warmth and faster dry times in a single fabric.

    Wore this item for 5 days straight on a South Dakota pronghorn hunt. Temperatures ranging from mid 30s to the mid 80s, performance was phenomenal. I only wore two layers during this trip with the Thlete being the outer. I understand it wasn’t made for this but the durability of this product exceeded my expectations as I was belly crawling hundreds of yards through rocks, sage, and cacti with little wear. I also wore this garment as my next to skin base layer during whitetail season in Minnesota. Sizing is true; 5’9″ 165lbs – Medium
