The 195 Merino Crew is designed to be the ideal base layer top, with a slim fit on the torso and a long cut sleeve and long body length to make sure there’s no space for cold air to sneak in. Raglan sleeves and a curved bottom hem make it stylish enough to wear with jeans, shorts, or hiking pants. Paired with our 195 Jogger, it’s the perfect warm base layer for winter sports, and a great main layer in the shoulder seasons.

Our merino is ZQ-certified and sourced from New Zealand — meeting strict criteria for ethical and sustainable wool farming. Our 195 collection offers next-to-skin warmth and comfort with merino’s beloved thermoregulation and natural odour-resistance. At 195 gsm this jersey knit is perfect for lounging around the fire or as a base layer if you're headed outdoors. For a deep dive on all the reasons ZQ is our certification of choice, read more in our Field Notes.

All of our 195 Merino Collection features flat lock seams — sitting smoother on the skin than traditional seams and are more flexible and durable as these garments are made to move with you. Our ZQ Merino is washable wool and preshrunk — a great feature for base layer products as they’re worn close to the skin.

My favourite merino shirt

Great shirt, have owned it for over a year and probably worn it 40+ times with little sign of wear. Keeps you warm when you need warmth and cool when you're working hard. Fit is with the L is good, I generally wear L (sometimes M with certain cuts) and am 6'1" and about 180lbs. Love the quality and the ethics of the company. I own plenty from icebreaker and smartwool and still find myself reaching for my Ecologyst.

The perfect Merino base layer. Currently doing a lot of winter lake surfing in Ontario and this top paired with the 195 long johns are now my essential pre and post surf kit. Can’t recommend the 195 merino enough. Or Ecologyst in general for that matter! P.S. The best customer service in the industry too!!

Ecologyst never fails.

Incredible quality and great fit. Nothing negative to say about the merino crew.
