The Hoplite 2 is made of 100% merino wool (150gsm). The best sweat-wicking and breathable fiber known to man. This bottom is the most versatile base layer on the market. Whether used as insulation or as a stand alone item, the Hoplite II crew will keep you comfortable, warm, and prepared.
Amazingly comfortable, I used this on my early season archery hunt in Arizona. The weather was Cool in the mornings and super hot during the day. This shirt worked out Great, because it regulates your heat level, naturally Antimicrobial ( no smell like poly shirts). Highly recommended as a base layer also on cooler hunts. It's a must have.

"Hoplite Merino LS"
Great lightweight long sleeve used year round. Extremely durable and versatile. I am 6’1” and 205# and the XL fits perfectly.

"Amazing hot waether layer, runs a bit short in arms and torso."
This is SUPER light weight, very thin. Tough (only has two small snags on the right arm after 2 seasons). The neck hole is quite wide, which can be a good (cooler) and bad(sunburn). Does run very short in the sleeves and torso. I wear a L in everything else and it fits perfect, but this is too short. I recommend you size up.
