Mountain Khakis Rendezvous Quarter Zip Shirt

A midweight merino wool base- or midlayer.

Brand: Mountain Khakis

Model: Rendezvous Quarter Zip Shirt


More breathable than a typical synthetic puffy, this midweight merino wool sweater became testers’ go-to insulation for spring and fall hiking in 40°F to 50°F temperatures. “It doesn’t bunch up when I wear it with other layers,” reports one tester after climbing in frigid Joes Valley, Utah. “Wool feels cozier than fleece in chilly, sleety weather,” says another, who topped it with a puffy for mid-winter camp-outs in subfreezing temps. Pair it with a good shell in rain; once wet, wool is slow to dry. mountainkhakis.com
