The Vital Range is the foundation of the ioMerino layering system. The Vital ‘Kryptos’ fabric creates air-pockets at both the skin and interlayer levels to help keep you warm, yet the fabric allows moisture to be wicked away from the skin helping to keep you cool when then temperatures rises. The same performance as the Vital Crew Neck, with a new feminine V neck fit.

While the Vital range is generally contact fit, we’ve made the V Neck a little more of a relaxed fit. The ribbed fabric will still give it a close to skin feel but without the 'second skin’ fit of our other Vital layers.

This top delivers all the warmth, comfort, temperature regulation, breathability and odor resistance Merino is famous for, but with the added benefit of being unbelievably silky smooth and soft. It’s also super versatile so whether you’re going for a run on a super cold morning, hitting the back country, bagging peaks or even doing what you do in milder temperatures, we promise this top will put a smile on your face.

The ribbed texture in the Kryptos MicroMerino® fabric the Vital is made from creates tiny air pockets at both the skin and interlayers to help trap warmth and keep you warmer than you would ever believe possible from a top this thin and lightweight.

If you’ve ever steered clear of Merino because you didn’t believe it could be comfortable enough, or if you’ve tried other brands and been disappointed, this is the top that will make you 'ReThink Wool’. If ever there was a pure, natural Merino thermal top suitable for people with sensitive skin or allergies, this would be it.

As if the fabric alone wasn’t already delivering ridiculously high levels of comfort, we've made this one with flat-lock seams and flat transfer tags for ultimate comfort.

    Comes out big

    Review by MariaK on 8/24/15
    I love all the merino products from I/O but I feel they have some serious issues with sizing. I am a UK size 8 and usually go for a size S with I/O but this product came out way too big and wide. It would easily fit a UK size 10 -12.
