StrongCore Merino Tee - Black


$ 96.00


An elevated classic cut from a durable, yet soft 18.5 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 18.5 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 , more durable than pure wool fabric, and drapes just plain beautifully.  

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.

The best!

This item is worth the price because it really does work in the heat and easily hand-wash and flat dry. Perfect for travel with carry-on only.

Great shirt

My new favorite everyday tee


High quality, slim but roomy, not crazy about the V hem

Impressed with the overall feel and fit of the shirt. I'm 5'7", 160lbs with a muscular build and a medium fits well. It's slightly longer than your average medium. I bought two shirts: one in black and one in navy and my girlfriend liked the blue I was wearing so much, she snagged the black still in the package. Not sure I'm getting that one back... I have a couple of Woolly merino shirts (which are 100% Merino, no nylon like the StrongCore) and while they fit slightly better (slimmer, shorter), they're not nearly as soft. My only gripe with this is the v side hem on the shirt. At first, I liked it as a unique finishing detail, however, the v is super pronounced and in a way, kind of makes it look like a woman's blouse. While I appreciate details like this, might be nice with a slightly less pronounced v or just a traditional hem.

Great T

Found it very soft and flexible. well made and a good fit.


Ultra fine Merino Wool is quite simply the best natural performance fabric available, and this top-capped, 170gsm, 18.5 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 18.5 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.
