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.
Our highly breathable, comfortable, do-it-all merino T-shirt, the Tech Lite Short Sleeve Low Crewe is a go-to top for four seasons worth of trails, travels and active pursuits. With capabilities as varied as the adventures you’ll take it on, the Tech Lite features a soft, open neck as well as our jersey corespun fabric—nylon fibers wrapped in merino wool to provide added strength and durability while maintaining next-to-skin softness.
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. The low crew neck looks great and is more breathable, allowing you to keep cool for longer.
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 simple, plain design does the job and is subtle enough to be worn for any occasion.
