Men's Merino Thermals

Merino wool is exceptionally warm and incredibly soft. It is also lightweight and great for thermal layer clothing that traps body heat and keeps a person feeling snug for longer. The amazing warming capability of Merino wool is matched by its breathability, allowing you to stay warm during chilly weather and cool down when conditions heat up. Merino thermals at Mountain Designs regulate your body temperature so you can always remain comfortable, even when packing fewer clothes or embarking on extended journeys.

Where can I find the best men's Merino thermal tops?

It makes sense to start in Australia, the land of the Merino. It's sometimes said that Australia was built on the back of the wool industry, and Merino sheep are famous for producing the world's best wool. The best men's Merino thermal tops at Mountain Designs have super-soft fibres courtesy of advanced spinning and finishing techniques. The natural Merino wool fibre crimp creates breathable protection against the elements without clinging to your skin, and the warmth for weight advantage can't be beaten.

Which pure Merino thermals are ideal for cold weather?

Thermal base layer clothing for cold weather should provide a closed seal between your body and the elements. Merino wool is extra-fine and soft against skin, making it ideal for thermal underwear, socks, gloves and other clothing accessories. If you want to upgrade your cold weather wardrobe its worth considering:

  • Long Sleeve Crew Top
  • Long Sleeve Zip Collar Top
  • Merino Leggings and/or
  • Merino Underwear

Cold weather thermals made from Merino wool won't weigh you down. Mountain Designs Merino thermals can be worn while trail running, mountain biking or working in the snowfields without impeding movement, and can be comfortably coupled with other Merino garments for additional warmth.

Which pure Merino thermals are best for wet weather?

Wool has amazing moisture-wicking properties that aren't found in other natural or man-made fibres, and this is further enhanced in Merino wool. Wool is both water repellent and water absorbent, and it can keep you warm or keep you cool. The crimpled structure of Merino wool gives it additional elasticity, allowing it to bounce back into shape even after getting wet.

Dressing for bitingly cold and wet weather entails wearing a base layer, mid layer and outer layer of clothing. The usefulness, comfort and wearability of the garments will be determined by the fabrics you choose. For moisture management, it's important to keep clingy fabrics away from the skin, and you will require insulating garments to avoid that clammy, wet feeling during rainy weather. Merino wool is incredibly versatile and can be worn as a Merino wool base layer with the addition of mid and outer layer crew tops, leggings, jumpers, scarves and more.
