The Tech Lite blends a little synthetic fabric in with the merino to improve performance in warmer conditions. The lightweight fabric wicks moisture, breathes well and is more quick drying than pure merino.
The Tech Lite Short Sleeve Crewe Peak Patterns is our highly breathable, comfortable and versatile merino T-shirt with capabilities as varied as the adventures you’ll take it on. From traveling out of a backpack in far-flung corners of the globe to mid-winter ski tours and multi-pitch climbs, the Tech Lite provides the breathability, odor-resistance and quick-drying performance you need, with a premium fit for go-anywhere comfort. The Tech Lite features our 150gm jersey fabric with corespun fibers— nylon threads wrapped in merino wool for the ultimate combination of durability and next-to-skin softness. We also added offset shoulder seams to reduce chafing when traveling with a pack. The tee’s original artwork by Bill Carden-Horton features a simple yet stylish dose of mountain inspiration.
Icebreaker have been a firm favourite among our staff for years and the Tech Lite is another great addition to the range. It is made using 150gm fabric putting it at the lighter weight end of the scale meaning it's well suited to warmer conditions and activities. This tee is made using a blend of merino wool (87%) and nylon (13%) meaning that it performs better in the heat as it is breathable and quicker drying than pure merino.
As with many merino baselayers, comfort is not an issue with the soft feel and natural performance of the breathable and amazingly odour resistant material. The blend of natural and synthetic in this tee makes it more durable and practical for a wider range of conditions. This version has the distinctive 7 Pinnacles patterns that stands out and looks great.
