Shower Pass says:"Whether you're on the trail or headed for town, the Hi-Line Merino Short Sleeve shirt provides an exceptional level of comfort and performance in a modern Henley style.

Constructed with 18.5-micron Merino Wool, the Hi-Line Merino Short Sleeve shirt is especially breathable - not to mention moisture wicking, anti-microbial and undeniably stylish"

Features to Note:

In-use Test:

The Hi-Line Merino Short Sleeve Shirt from Shower Pass is a stylish piece of kit, equally at home in the pub or on the trail. The fabric, a blend of Merino Wool, Polyester and Nylon, is lovely, warm and soft to the touch and all the seams are finished to a high standard.

The material also includes UPF 40+ protection from harmful ultra violet rays from the sun.

It has a loose fit (which I prefer) and is long enough to either tuck in to your trousers or leave hanging outside. The back is in fact a little longer than the front which means it stayed tucked in when bending and stretching. The sleeves are short and there is a single breast pocket on the left-hand front and a neck opening secured with four poppers. There is a choice of two colours, slate grey and blue and there is no collar.

The pocket is a bit small and weak and does not have a popper or anything to keep it closed. To be honest, it is not much good for anything remotely heavy like a mobile phone.

The features list includes a 'Reflective label on back' but I can find no evidence of this and not sure what they mean.

I must confess that I tend to run hot and you will find me bathed in sweat when working hard climbing a steep slope. It usually takes me quite some time to cool down again. For this reason, if I am pIanning a day climbing in the high mountains with lots of steep ascents, I tend to shy away from Merino Wool base layers since I find they rapidly become sodden with sweat and, once soaked, take too long to dry leaving me cold and clammy. Sadly, I found the Hi-Line Merino Short Sleeve Shirt from Shower Pass is no different is this respect.

However, the Hi-Line Merino Short Sleeve Shirt from Shower Pass is perfect as a base layer for gentler walks, like a winter stroll along the canal or the valley bottom. It is ideal as a warm base layer when camping and perfect for wearing something stylish when out in the evening.

Buying Advice:

If you run hot and sweat a lot then you might want to avoid Merino base layers. For the rest of you, the Hi-Line Merino Short Sleeve Shirt from Shower Pass is a well made, stylish piece of kit, equally at home, in town or in the pub or on the trail that will not leave you disappointed.
