    Default Merino wool in ASAT...

    If you like merino wool, here's an interesting line of mostly base layer garments. Bit spendy.

    interesting camo pattern they use. price is on par with patagonia wool base layers. they launched that company with two shirts, long underwear and boxers, not a huge product line.

    I'm a big fan of the ASAT pattern.........and I love wool and wool's properties.
    But I want ASAT camo outer clothing. Nothing can be gained by camoing my arse with something that won't get exposed until I crawl into my sleeping bag. Then what's the point?
    Now what ?

    Does not seem like much of a product line to start a company on... They need a good mountain pant and perhaps some outerwear to help get them going! : )

    Default Those are good points...

    How'd you guys know? Here's First Lite's response:

    "...for 09 we are offering pants, a button shirt a zip shirt and vest
    the pants in light virgin wool and the rest in heavy weight 400gm
    merino. Thanks."

    More to come I guess.

    www.dayonecamouflage.com has wool asat outerwear as well as many other colors. They have fleece, bucksuede, and cotton, with or w/o windstopperas well. Looks like good stuff.
