Natural fabrics are ‘in’ when it comes to outdoor apparel. Specialty cottons and Cocona are getting a lot of hype. Merino wool is neck-and-neck in popularity for good reason. It’s soft to the touch, breathable, and has antibacterial qualities.

Icebreaker has banked their existence on the use of Merino wool and is reaping the rewards in the sharp upswing of its popularity.  The Icebreaker GT 150 SS Velocity Crewe is touted for its airiness and rugged wear. The GT 150 SS Velocity Crewe features glove-like fit, raglan sleeves, a myriad of eyelets panels for venting, and flatlock seams.

The hot and wet weather of the northeastern U.S. is the best way to see how the GT 150 SS Velocity Crewe work. The Merino wool soaked up the sweat like an infomercial ShamWoW. The eyelet panel keeps you cool during the intense noontime heat.

The antibacterial feature is key for any sweat hog. Your wife will not be afraid to walk beside or behind you knowing that your manly odor is neutralized by the lanolin in the Merino wool in the GT 150 SS Velocity Crewe.

The GT 150 SS Velocity Crewe is meant to be form fitting which may be seen as a negative to some. If you are into loose fitting shirts, you may want to order the shirt a size bigger. If you do not, the GT 150 SS Velocity Crewe may force you to do a couple extra sets of crunches to make you look more like Jersey Shore’s Mike ‘The Situation’ than Mike Myer’s Fat Bastard.

Icebreaker LogoThe Icebreaker GT 150 SS Velocity Crewe is a great shirt for hot weather and is versatile for activities on your feet, two-wheels or wherever your day takes you in the outdoors. Icebreaker lists the GT 150 SS Velocity Crewe at $64.99.
