StrongCore Merino Pocket Tee — Slate


$ 96.00


An elevated classic cut from a durable, yet soft 17.5 micron Merino single jersey. Ultra-breathable, temperature-regulating, and built to last.  

The StrongCore Merino Pocket Tee came to exist because we refused to compromise on comfort or durability.  When we wanted to update a classic, we knew we were going to have to start at the yarn level.  What we found was a core-spun nylon/merino yarn.  A luxuriously-soft, top-capped 17.5 micron merino wool fiber spun around a strong, durable, quick-drying nylon fiber.  This knit up perfectly into a 170gsm single jersey that is softer than the 18.9 micron wool most brands use, more durable than pure wool fabric, and drapes just plain beautifully.  

Using a long-proven merino wool factory in the San Francisco Bay Area, we cut this luxuriously-soft fabric into a simple, classic T-shirt.  Cut slightly lean with a dropped tail, the StrongCore Merino Pocket Tee is ready for all of your active pursuits whether that’s desert climbs, mountain single-track, or just plain everyday wear.  Truly the one shirt you can wear day-in and day-out, ready for anything you’re up to and anywhere you’re going.  

The T-shirt, Elevated.

    Extremely comfortable: not only best all day tee, but a traveling joker apparel.

    The shirt is extremely comfortable, it has a very soft feel, which makes it one of kind, like silk. I use it as a stand alone piece, or layered. Brazil has many micro climates, and during the day, it may be hot and humid, or a little colder, specially at night; but the tee holds itself. Even if i use it all day long, it almost never gets bad odor. Traveling, i only use merino, and Westernrise really hit the mark with theirs. Now i'm putting it to test to see about its durability, but, so far, it has excelled itself in every way.

    A revelation in packing and comfort!

    I'm new to this whole merino wool game... and I'll admit, I was skeptical. I figured this shirt would be itchy. NOPE. Soft. I was worried it would be delicate and thin. NOPE. Thick and durable (there's nylon in there to toughen things up). I used to pack 7-8 cotton tshirts when I'd travel overseas for 2 weeks. Now I see why that's crazy. 100% cotton is the WORST for travel. Now I only pack 2-3 of these merino wool nylon blend Western Rise tshirts. They work even better than cotton in every way possible, and less room and weight dedicated to clothing means a better travel experience for me.

    Awesome Travel Tee

    I love this shirt! I carried it for a trip around the world, and found it to be very durable and odor-resistant. The chest pocket was surprisingly useful.


    Ultra fine Merino Wool is quite simply the best natural performance fabric available, and this top-capped, 170gsm, 17.5 micron single jersey is some of the nicest and softest we have ever felt.  During times of high activity, merino has a unique ability to draw moisture into the core of the wool fiber, wicking moisture from the skin to cool the body while remaining dry to the touch.  In cooler temperatures, the natural crimp of the fibers trap air and insulate the body.  It stays dry longer, resists odors, and breathes better than any other natural fabric available.  Quite simply, the softest, most versatile natural fabric in the world.

    We bolstered this natural performance by using a core-spun nylon merino fiber.  Ultra-fine 17.5 micron merino wool is spun around a core Nylon filament yarn.  This increases the burst strength of the fabric and improves durability while retaining the ultra-soft hand feel of fine micron merino that we love.
