  • 88% polyester/12% Merino wool for superior wicking and a cotton-like feel
  • Built-in FreshGuard® odor neutralization

Nice Shirt
January 27, 2014

The shirt fits nicely and feels very comfortable. I'm a big fan of merino wool clothing and I anticipate this will not disappoint. The first time I wore this was to the gym for a run on the treadmill. Nice wicking material.

Nice look - Annoying comfort
December 05, 2010

I purchased this shirt because of the OR name. The gear I've used from Outdoor Research has always come through when the weather doesn't cooperate. So, understandably I felt adding a performance shirt for the warmer months would become an instant favorite. The positive: Colors are true and the visual contrasting design gives style to a performance shirt. The fabric is silky and soft yet not staticy...which is refreshing with these types of shirts. The con: The stiching. I hate tags so I never felt comfort would be a problem. However, I no longer wear this shirt because the seams along the upper back are a nuisance. Unfortunately, being a warmer weather shirt, the prospect of layering it just doesn't make much sense to me so I'm stuck with a nice looking shirt that isn't comfortable... I'll be more selective in the future with my lighter weight shirt purchases from OR.

Pros: Great design, Cons: Cost, comfort

A durable performer!!
September 06, 2011

I have wanted one of these shirts for some time now. So when I got my bonus the only question was which color scheme to choose. Which wasnt a tough descision as they are all great. Usually I wear a mens Large but I settled for X-Large so I wouldnt have to wait any longer. The material is superb and indeed feels like cotton against the skin. The seams didnt bother me once and the Sequence Duo wicks and dries quickly. I am a tree climber by trade so I certainly put it to the test. In my line of work I am used to replacing shoes, pants, and especially shirts regularly. Most articles just arent capable of handling the day to day rigors of tree work. Sharp tools, abrasive tree bark, fuel spills, pine sap, briars, I could go on and on. I dont know why but for some reason this shirt doesnt snag and pull like my polyester shirts. I simply wanted a shirt that wouldnt bog down with sweat after 30 minutes of activity. Well, not only were my hopes fulfilled but at the end of the day the shirt doesnt even smell.

A big time favorite
April 07, 2011

I've owned a Sequence Duo Tee for about 2 years now and have worn it ragged. I also own 3 of the regular Sequence Tees and 1 of the long sleeve Sequence Zip Necks. Today I just received my 2nd Duo Tee. First, the fabric is just top notch - very soft and silky - with none of the "plastic" feel of the Patagonia Cap 1 (which I do like and wear a lot also). The fabric feel of these Sequence Tees can almost be described as "luxurious." Performance-wise, yup, I've tested 'em in below freezing weather and zero degree weather and during high intensity activities, such as x-country skiing in 5 degree weather and dragging a field-dressed deer for miles in below freezing weather - working up quite a sweat in the process. The fabric performs superbly in terms of warmth, wicking, comfort, and never building up an odor. Second, I've read the previous comment giving the Duo Tee only 2 stars due to seam discomfort in hot weather. I'd never thought about or noticed this and had to inspect my old Duo Tee compared with the one received today. I also inspected my "regular" Sequence Tees. The seams haven't changed from the old to the new, but it is true that the seams in the Duo Tee can't really be considered truly "flat" (where the different colors meet). So I can see where the other reviewer found them to be a nuisance in hot weather. Still, in the 2 years I owned the previous one, this never registered. But I also live in Montana and don't use this shirt on a consistent basis in hot, humid weather. The "not-entirely-flat" seams might be a nuisance to me too if I lived in that type of climate year round. Lastly, you should know that the regular Sequence Tees (both long and short sleeve) do NOT have these same seams. So if you anticipate you might be bothered by them, buy the Sequence Tee rather than the Sequence Duo Tee. Problem solved. Ultimately, the fabric OR uses in these shirts is impressive and that extra merino wool component seems invaluable in terms of comfort, warmth, staying dry, and not smelling. My two-year old version of the Duo Tee does have some pilling now, but I wear it just as much and performance is still just as great. I'll be buying more of both types and recommend you do too!!

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Great value, luxurious fabric

Excellent Shirt
March 20, 2013

These shirts are so versatile! I use then as a base layer when running in cool weather. I play sand volleyball and wear two of these shirts early in the season. Having the sleeve length near the elbows adds to the warmth. In hot weather I work out in these shirts and do sprints. The shirts do get damp with sweat and don't dry exceptionally quick but they are still very comfortable to wear. After an extended period of wearing them the fabric does start to pill but the shirt still looks good.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, extremely versatile, Cons: fabric pills with extended wear

Comfort and style for the trails!
March 05, 2013

This shirt has good wicking properties and kept me cool on several days of multi-mile trekking in Nepal. It has a very soft, smooth, cotton-like feel which is very comfortable and quite different from the rough, grainy nylon feel of many other speed-dry wicking trail tee-shirts. On the other hand, the soft fabric may not be the most durable for ultra-rugged use with heavy backpacks and abrasive shoulder straps, though I've never had problemson some multi-day journeys. The overall cut is long and slightly slender, not body hugging, but not baggy. The sleeves are a little extended, and cover more of the upper arm area than an average short sleeved shirt, which, along with the slightly narrower collar opening which surrounds the neck and covers shoulders and chest, is leaves less of the skin exposed to sun. A great product!

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value

Very nice fitting and looking tee shirt
November 18, 2011

I purchased the grey/black tee shirt. The fit is perfect and the look is great. I am a small medium and this fits like a glove especially in the shoulder/arm pit area. Actually, I will be purchasing another in a different color.

Traveling Tee Shirt
April 10, 2012

This is the first time I have purchased a sequence duo tee shirt. I am very pleased with my purchase. I bought this shirt for a trip overseas. I wanted a shirt that I could wear a few days in a row w/out washing. I also like my tee shirts long and this tee shirt has a long tail. I've worn it in the hot heat and cool air and it's very comfortable. I actually rate it as one of my favorites. I will buy another soon.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
