The Universal T-shirt is the perfect casual-fit Merino Tee for everyday wear, but doubles as a high-performance layer for your next big adventure. Lightweight, breathable, and odour-resistant. A true all-rounder.

Using our extra durable Merino+ fabric, the Universal Tee is packed with technical features to keep you safe and comfortable through all sorts of activities and weather conditions. With a similar relaxed fit to our best-selling Keystone Tee, while the Universal tee looks like regular casual Merino T-Shirt, it's a true high performance, lightweight, thermo-regulating layer. 

When you’re travelling, exploring or doing any sort of high-intensity activity, it will keep you comfortable for longer through a wide range of conditions. Chilly start lines, full sun, shade, cool breeze and well past sunset will be no problems!

Why you’d buy this:You’re not sure what to get or what will fit you best - so you play it safe and get this because it’s part of our most versatile, good for everything range. You want an easy/casual fit, something merino rich (this one’s 83%), but a bit more durable to resist snags and wear.

As with all our clothes, the merino delivers natural temperature regulation, breathability, moisture wicking and odour resistance.

Goldilocks fit…

I’m a size 6-8 and bought this in a size XS which is just the right length for me - I’m 162cm tall/5 feet 3 inches. Not too loose, not too fitted, just right, and the Merino is a nice weight. Some Merino tees are too thin and are closer to underwear than teeshirts. This is a good mid-weight.
I bought this in the red (chili) and I like it enough to be considering buying another one or two in different colours. My first iomerino tee wont be my last!

Perfect top for just about everything and anything

I loved my red top so much I bought the dazzling blue. Love the colour. Bought it in medium as I’m a size 10-12. Not tight fitting which I really like. Great top for travel and multi-day hikes. Much more durable than other merino tops I’ve bought as it has nylon and elastane in it. Just wish it was 5 centimetres longer.

I love this shirt

I am hiking the Appalachian Trail and have been wearing IO Merino all the way! I started in a Run all the Trails shirt that I wore for the first 109 days. My backpack rubbed a few holes eventually - to be expected when you wear it every day and your pack weighs over 10kg.
I am now in my How good is Nature? Shirt and I just love it!

Thank you so much for your wonderful review Hannele :)

What an amazing journey! So glad you decided to go with io.

I didn’t think I could wear merino until I got this

Looks good, feels soft, light and easily packable.
I washed it in the sink and it dried hanging in my bathroom in 5 hours.

I’m a size 12 Aus in almost everything or a medium and the medium in this fits comfortably.

I have already ordered another Universal top and two tanks tops and a bra for my upcoming 6 week trip. I like that not all of the tops look super outdoorsy so are more city travel friendly.
