So comfortable to wear. Have run in -1c and top is warm and soft
I actually have a few long sleeve merinos but this is my first ultra one with the zip. It is my new favourite!! The fit is slightly looser than the altitude tops which is super comfy, and the higher neck with zip means my neck does not get cold. The sleeves are also nice and long and come with that thing that is so much in demand for us tall people - thumb loops!! Yay! Love this top and would happily buy another one.
Very happy with the fit and shape. Super soft fabric and the finishing around the neckline and zip is wonderful. I will be buying a second one.
I wear this long sleeve running and hiking. Actually I wear it a lot because it is so comfortable and it doesn't stink like synthetics!! Requires minimal washing. Nice loose fit so you can layer up with a singlet/shirt underneath. No chafing what so ever (even under a hydration pack). I love the zip because you can control the temperature.
Wore my ultra zip today. Went on a short 10k hike, in cold (15deg) wet conditions. I wore it as an outer layer, with a merino singlet under and a rain jacket over the top. It kept me warm and regulated my body temp throughout the day. Love it!
Excellent top - like the colour and high neck zip style
While Merino is an amazing natural fibre, not all Merino fabrics are created equal. At ioMerino, we make our own fabrics, using only the best quality fibres, and to very specific specifications that make the most of the natural benefits of Merino. All of them are 'Merino rich’. No cheap blends passed off as Merino. No cheaper scratchy fibres or synthetic substitutes to save money. No unethical production. And each fabric is made for a specific purpose. So if you see something with a small amount of elastase or nylon added, you can be sure it absolutely needs to be there to enhance the natural stretch and durability.
It took every bit of our 140 years of experience in the wool industry to perfect our fabrics, but we think you’ll agree the end result was more than worth the effort.
