WHAT GARMENT ARE YOU FIELD TESTING?
The 210 Merino Henley.

WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST IMPRESSION OF THE GARMENT?
Soft to the touch. Nice colour.

DESCRIBE A TIME WHEN YOU WORE THIS GARMENT OUTSIDE.
HOW DID IT PERFORM?
Really well. It kept me warm (with a jacket) whenever I wore it.

HOW DOES THIS PRODUCT MAKE YOU FEEL? 
It made me feel great as the Merino got a lot of compliments, and I got to tell people about your awesome company.

HOW OFTEN HAVE YOU WORN IT?
Probably 10ish times.

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE FABRIC?
Quite soft and breathable. Durable. You can tell it's not cheap.

DID YOU FOLLOW THE WASHING/DRYING INSTRUCTIONS WHEN CLEANING THE GARMENT? IF NOT, HOW DID YOU CLEAN IT?
Honestly, I did not even look at the washing instructions. I do all my laundry like a clueless man. Throw everything in on cold wash and let a few things hang dry. Which worked very well for the Henley.

DID THE GARMENT CHANGE AFTER USE?
Nope. Worked well.

HOW WOULD YOU IMPROVE THIS PRODUCT? 
I have no suggestions at the moment.

TELL US A STORY ABOUT YOU IN THIS GARMENT.
I was out adventuring around in the vast mountains of Switzerland with my new friend Nathan, and as we were talking, I looked down at my shirt. I started to explain why I was so fond of ecologyst and all they stand for. He already loved the Terry Crew I was wearing, and when he tried on the Merino Henley, he was hooked. Not only was he impressed with the fabric and the fit but the overall look and feel of the shirt had him wanting to order one for himself. It's always fun to brag about one of my favourite companies.

HOW DO YOU LIKE TO SPEND YOUR WEEKEND?
I am outside as much as possible. Whether I'm hiking or just exploring. Whether it's within Canada or abroad, or just finding new spots in the river valley where I live.

WHAT'S ONE WAY THAT YOU LEAVE THINGS BETTER?
Where ever I am hiking I make a point of collecting as much garbage as I can. This beautiful planet we are living on is neglected by the masses so much, I try and do whatever small part I can. Luckily it seems like there's a movement growing about keeping it in the best shape we can. The more I converse with people about it and bring knowledge to friends and strangers, the better I feel about it.

What We're Wearing
