"Hoplight base layer "
I have both the long and short sleeve. These are my go to base layers. Lightweight, comfortable, not too itchy.
"Awesome for hot days"
super comfy, breathes well, soaks up sweat like a sponge.
Merino wool is great most anytime. Its cool for warm weather and is an unbeatable base layer as it cools off. Wool can be worn for days without smelling bad. I love it.
This is my base layer year-round. Wicks moisture well, feels good, doesn't itch, and packs small so I keep a second one I my backpack.
As with all kryptek, runs about a size smaller than usual; I wear large tees and had to get this in a medium.
