Montbell Men's Super Merino Wool Mid-Weight Tights


Item available for purchase in-store only. Please contact us for current product selection. or 678-WHITNEY/678-944-8639. 

Using only the best superfine MERINO WOOL fibers on the market in our fabric, yields a highly elastic base layer that moves with you while flaunting a velvety touch. Middle weight SUPER MERINO Wool offers the same stellar moisture management and thermal properties that traditional wool is famous for, while reaching new levels of refinement and luxury. You can enjoy all the comfort of wool in a day around your favorite mountain town or during your latest winter backcountry obsession. Our most versatile wool base layer is ideally suited for moderate exertion in cool to cold weather. Ideal uses: Backcountry skiing / boarding, Mountaineering, Hiking, Climbing.


A microscopic look at the surface of an individual fiber reveals a protective scale structure. The scaly outer layer repels water, while the core remains highly absorbent. Under normal conditions the hydrophobic scales shut moisture out. However, as humidity increases due to body heat and perspiration, the scales open slightly to allow the sweat-absorbing core to be exposed. Additionally, the scales hold the fabric away from your body maintaining a dry comfortable feel. Commonly, these scales are removed in the shrink-resistance process. At Montbell, we have been able to perfect an anti-shrink technology without compromising the naturally beneficial characteristics of wool fibers.


Montbell uses the highest quality of merino wool from New Zealand for our base layers. With a selective fine gauge 18.5 micron fiber, Montbell's merino wool feels extremely smooth and has great elasticity. The fibers that we utilize are more uniform in the number of crimps and their direction, while maintaining great consistency in diameter. This allows for very few "stray" fibers that make traditional wool garments itchy and uncomfortable.


It is said that wool fabrics are naturally odor resistant and SUPER MERINO Wool is no different. The complex nature of the wool fiber allows us to create a highly breathable fabric that easily moves perspiration away from the skin, creating a dry environment where odor causing bacteria cannot thrive. Without a warm, moist place to live, odors never build and you smell better longer.


By introducing a small number of electron deductive carbon fibers into the SUPER MERINO Wool weave, we are able to produce a fabric that limits the positive charges placed on atoms during activity, thus reducing the amount of static electric build up.


All of Montbell's SUPER MERINO Wool garments can be washed in the home. (Please use mild detergent)
