Royal Robbins MerinoLux Go Everywhere Polo

Go from peak to pub

Brand: Royal Robbins

Model: MerinoLux Go Everywhere Polo


Thanks to corn (yes, the kind on the cob), this shirt is a cut above standard poly tops. “I don’t usually like the artificial feel of synthetic-blend shirts, but this one feels like jersey-knit sheets,” said a veteran tester after a week of hiking and hanging around Jackson Hole. The buttery feel comes from DuPont’s corn-based polyester (rather than petroleum-based), which is blended with sustainably harvested wool. It doesn’t just look good—another tester wore it on a hot, humid day in California, on the brutally long, steep trail to Castle Crags, and he praised the moisture management and neck protection from the collar. $55; 5.8 oz.; men’s S-XXL; royalrobbins.com
