Hi all, STP is selling Super.natural clothing, which for the most part seems about 50% Merino 50% polyester on their site at good prices (even better if you can apply coupons). Anybody has any field experience with this brand? I haven't seen much in the way of performance reviews. I've been happy with other polyester/polypropylene and merino interactions, but I've also had some flukes. I have these ultra light Terramar pieces that I also bought at STP and are 100% polyester. They take over double the time to dry than Capilene 3, despite the weight difference. So I am guessing the weaving process must have something to do with it, not just fabric composition and weight. Thank you!Oct 28, 2015 at 9:16 pm #2234732AnonymousInactive
Thank you for the tip. Interesting ratio, perhaps worth a try. Hopefully the polyester part is designed to wick, otherwise with 50% wool, it won't wick in the spreading way at all.Oct 29, 2015 at 3:01 am #2234760Gilad NachmaniBPL Member
Been using Super.Natural for a couple of years now and the fabric works well for mid-level impact activity (fast hiking/slow runs) but they have a slight cut problem. The Super.Natural range varies widely in fit and all of them were too big for me. I usually wear s/m (usually finding one of them work) and with Super.Natural I went down to a clear small and even those are a bit loose on the torso. Wort trying though, I've met the team in ISPO a couple of years ago and they are a very nice team.
