    Merino wool is fantastic stuff. I used to get such STINK on multi day backpacking trips with synthetic undies. Now, I *only* backpack in merino wool. Super comfy and NO stink.

      Thanks for your comment HJ. I value your input, and I’m with you on the merino wool use for backpacking.

    i do not own any merino products but i’ve seen some and they seem interesting

  3. Daniel Lopez

    I don’t have any merino products yet, but I’d be excited to own some considering the reviews

  4. Kayley

    I don’t own any Merino products. I’ve heard good things about them, though.

  5. Jeff Hubatka

    I wear merino t-shirts and underwear on all my multi-day trips. This stuff is amazing, four days in the Sierras with no stink!

  6. Sher

    I own some lightweight stuff by smartwool, icebreaker, and redram, and a merino sweater by neve

    I always hike in a thin merino wool t-shirt – good wicking and not smelly like polypro. I also only wear wool or a blend of wool-synthetic socks – much nicer than cotton and much less smelly.
    I’ve got a zip up hoodie from Icebreaker that looks good (I get lots of compliments on it), performs well as a midlayer, and is great for travel.
    Smartwool and Icebreaker are my go-to brands.

    I have a couple of hats, a balaclava, long underwear, boxer briefs, and 1/4 zip sweater all of Merino Wool 🙂 Merino Wool is awesome!

  9. Christine Riley

    I can definitely recommend Smartwool thermals and socks. I haven’t tried Icebreaker or WoolX yet.

  10. Hal Summers

    I have several merino pieces including socks, shirts, pants and shorts. I like the lightweight shirts for the gym and the silk weight for the trail. Great stuff.

  11. Cameron Robbins

    I have recently started using merino wool socks, a great improvement over the old school rag wools socks.

  12. Adrianne

    I bought Kirkland brand merino wool socks.. Shh don’t tell my husband 😉

  13. david

    I’ve never tried any Merino products so this might be an opportunity to win and try some ! Thanks

  14. Jill Golden

    I like the Icebreaker short sleeve 150 or the long sleeve 200 for base layer, the 260 for mid/insulating or top layer and Smartwool midweight or trek weight socks.

  15. Wesley Sapp

    Wood like 2 try Merino wool if A Lucky Winner Men 2 XL .

    This email came across now but says it was a December contest. Is it running again or is this an old one?

    • TheHikingGeek

      Sorry about that. I wanted to shared detailed pics of the neck gaiter, so I re-published this post. This is an old giveaway.
