New for Fall ’05, Smartwool extends its Microweight line to offer a long sleeve crew top, just what many of us have been waiting for. Wool offers superb temperature regulation, and a thin layer - this is Smartwool’s lightest weight fabric - combats the traditional weakness of wool, drying time. As is standard for Smartwool, the fabric is comfortable next to skin and machine washable. The women’s version hugs the body and has sleeves that are nice and long, the men’s version has a slightly looser fit.

I live and do a lot of my backpacking in the desert, but I LOVE the mountains of the west! I also get out to the east coast occasionally to backpack.
