The Full Auto A/C Tee
May 19, 2011

Never too cold, never too hot, never too wet, and never too dry,this smart looking tee keeps you feel fresh whole day. Under the hot and humid weather conditions, you may feel too warm at first, but it will get better soon. When you are wet by rain or sweat, it will dry quickly, but it never takes heat away too much from your body. And after that, it smells not bad. That's the beauty of it.

Pros: Great design, Performance, Ease of use

Great shirt! It feels softer than my Icebreaker and works just as well all for a bit less money. I'll have to see how it stands up to constant use. Overall wonderful!

Great fit; excellent fabric
September 18, 2011

This shirt is way better than expected. It has quickly become my favorite shirt. The fabric drapes well and washes well. Moisture wicking is fantastic. Wish it comes in more colors or pattern.

Good shirt, great deal
June 29, 2011

I saw these on sale, and had to grab a couple. Out of the bag they smell like a new car, so into the wash, air dry, and I wore the first one I received under an SPF shirt on a pretty warm afternoon hike in the foothills of San Diego. The shirt was great. Kept me dry, cool, and the shoulder seems are built so as not to interfere with pack straps. Seem to be well-built, pretty happy so far. Of all the merino shirts I own, most are long-sleeved base layers, this is the only model that sports tags in the collar (doesn't show in the photo here), but not just A tag, there are FIVE piled on top of each other. That's pretty unusual for a base layer. Overall, though, not a huge deal, and a pretty good shirt on sale.

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