Brynje Wool Thermo T-Shirt with Inlay - Black


Weight: 124 g         11 reviews
The Brynje Wool Thermo T-Shirt with Inlay is a unique base-layer designed for all-year use. This garment is produced using merino wool and polyamide. Devised by a team with years of winter expedition experience between them, the merino mesh system helps to create a garment with excellent moisture-wicking ability.

While it may sound odd, this mesh system has been tested and proven over decades' of expeditions in some of the harshest environments. In fact, Brynje clothing was worn by the adventurers Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay, on their legendary expedition to scale Mount Everest in 1953. When worn underneath a merino wool mid layer, it provides an extremely soft, warm and comfortable feel, as the mesh helps to trap pockets of air giving superb insulation.

This Bryjne Wool Thermo T-Shirt with inlay is designed with half-length sleeves and also features solid inlay fabric on the shoulders, for protection when wearing a rucksack.

This garment has been designed for year-round use in cold conditions, including extended winter expeditions. Also ideal for multi-day activities, canoeing, cycling and hiking. The Wool Thermo range of clothing has become one of Brynje's best sellers, thanks to the enhanced functionality of wool. The Brynje Wool Thermo T-Shirt w/inlay is exclusive to Woodlore within the UK.

  Fantastically light and effective base layer from Brynje. Wicks effectively and dries in a heartbeat. I found that it evened out the temperatures for me on a recent exercise in Kosovo where the weather fluctuated between warm sun, wind and rain, then snow. The temperatures varied a great deal as you can probably imagine and the mountainous nature of the area in required a light and versatile daysack set up whilst working away from the Base of Operations. The reinforced shoulders were ideal when wearing a backpack (with a long sleeve t-shirt) and it doesn't feel constrictive. I tend to sweat a lot when working hard and this makes wearing more synthetic materials less comfortable for me personally. I found that the Brynje was great because I could air it out in no time and it stayed pretty fragrance free in an environment without access to clothes washing facilities. Essential kit for me as part of my light deployment set up.

  Terrible, this is not merino. I own many merino socks and baselayers from smartwool, icebreaker, rapha and huub. None have shrunk in the wash, but the Brynje string vest shrinks every wash and has turned into a crop top and soon will be a bra.

  My wife is appalled by this product, as she claims it makes me look like a very bad Freddie Mercury tribute act, however, I absolutely love it. The beauty of it is that it works superbly in both hot and cold weather in helping to regulate your body temperature and shift condensation from your skin both under exertion and at rest. I have used it skiing in Norway, down to -25 degrees Celsius and up above +25 degrees Celsius cycling in the UK and everything in between. It's a very comfortable material and the extra shoulder reinforcements provide additional comfort if you're wearing a rucksack. I've found these to be hard wearing and not too smelly in the field due to the Merino wool content and they also dry very quickly if you want or need to wash. I would only provide one warning which is to make sure you follow the washing instructions unless you want a thermal that will fit one of your favorite garden gnomes. This is one of my go to pieces of clothing which is small enough to stuff in almost any travel bag. Highly recommended due to it's function, broad utility and the possibility for endless renditions of Bohemian Rhapsody.

  This base layer is a little gem, to be honest I was quite surprised how well the mesh design kept me warm without sweating. I wore it underneath my merrino mid layer and it felt great. The day I tested it was one of those nice chilly mornings over the south downs, it felt great. In the near future I shall purchase another one. The other point is how light it feels next to your skin. Highly recommended.

  Bought very recently but impressively effective immediately. Age, heart condition and medication mean a lot of sweating and susceptibility to cold. My Hilltrek Ventile jacket is great but when the wind is strong and the chill-factor is high any inner sweatiness on the windward side gives rapid cooling. This vest does away with 99% of this effect. I can wear a light cashmere over it then my Ventile and keep comfy without sweat-cooled areas. I would however, be an instant customer for a mid-layer bulkier-mesh vest to go between wool and Ventile to completely cut out cold bridges in the worst conditions. something on the lines of that polypropylene lining in Antarctic jackets by Fjallraven(?). OK I might just have to make do with a fishing net!

  The best base layer I own. I own a few different base layers and Merino Wool is the best material for this purpose, in my opinion. I used this particular one in -10 degrees celsius and below on a camping trip to Finland. I sweat quite a bit and It worked exactly as described, keeping me warm and dry as part of a properly implemented layering system. It Combines very well with another base layer over the top to create a stable layer of air next to the skin. I very highly recommend this product.

  Can be a bit catchy when putting on and off, other than that, great.

  I have been using this in warm and cold conditions and I have to say this is the best base layer I've ever owned. The mesh type design dries you really quickly and it also keeps the warmth in cold. I Love it. Make sure to wash it with cold water not to shrink it. I did this once.

  Brilliant base layer, does indeed look a wee bit odd if it's your only top, and you are not into German techno, but, completely worth it. Packs so small, does so much. Only negative is that it can be found half the price elsewhere if you don't mind the wait for postage. Cannot however fault Woodlore for this product, great choice, great service, and I'd have never found it, if not for them.
