StrongCore Merino Tee — Black


$ 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 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 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.

 *Note: The black version of this shirt does NOT include a chest pocket.

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.

Go-to travel Tee

I have blue and dark grey in this. Same review for both: One of my go-to tee's at home, but I really make sure to pack it on all trips. It's soft, comfortable, looks good in a variety of settings, but that whole marino is smell resistant stuff that I frankly thought was mostly hype, is real. It's pretty astounding actually. My ideal use: catch a red eye flight, be comfortable, and 10 hours laters get through customs and still look and smell like a normal person..


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.
