Fantastic wicking all round base layer. I use this for running in the winter and as a base layer in both Scottish and Alpine climbing. I personally am not a fan of merino wool as it irritates my skin and doesn’t wick that well.
Synthetic base layers have an issue of stinking after a day or so of climbing, not great on a three day alpine route. Capilene is treated to resist odour but granted it will start to smell after a few days of use. But for the wicking and comfort I don’t feel any other base layer comes close.
