Woolx Lightweight Merino Wool X-Lite Shirt - Review

Today TOGR is reviewing the Woolx Lightweight Merino Wool Short Sleeve X-Lite Shirt.


Come in 5 sizes;
Small, medium, Large, Xlarge and XXL

Two colors; Black and Blue

As many of you know, I am a fan of very cheap shirts and like I have said many times before, I can wear them and when they get nasty I throw them away.

These shirts are very inexpensive, $10 or less usually and they perform well enough.  Not great but adequately.

With this shirt from Woolx, I have to say that it’s a great shirt and for $60 it should be.

Yes that is a big difference from my typical $10 Old Navy Active shirts but what we have here is a shirt that certainly performs better and will likely last longer than the shirts that I normally wear.

Merino wool is considered amongst the best of wool blends and it’s a top choice in athletic wear over synthetic materials;

because the wool helps regulate body heat while wicking away moisture and it can retain heat when wet.

Antibacterial properties that repel odor.

Wore it for a week straight and no stick!  Washed over 6 times, no pilling and it looks brand new.

No itching, whatsoever
Moisture wicking
Warm when wet
Quickly Drying

 5. ounces for the small size.  My typical shirts run about the same weight; 4.7oz

No tag on the tee
100% 17.5 Micron Australian Merino Wool
170 g/m2 jersey construction

Flatlock - non chaffe seams

Now going back to price only you can decide what type of person you are.  Do you buy something and spend more but have it last longer or do you spend less and replace more often?

I did not think Icebreaker quality could be beat but Woolx did it.

It Has Earned Some Respect after many miles and many days worth of use.
