Picked up a couple middish weight base layer tops at Costco yesterday. Half merino wool and half “Primaloft” poly. I think they were about $18 per?

Anyway, just passing it on. They have merino blend stuff most years, usually different labels on them. This year it’s Karbon.

I like the blend, they perform quite well for my use, and I’m not paying 3x the price for a company add campaign.

I got several of the Karbon merino shirts. For a few dollars, they are unbeatable.
Exact same weight/quality as REI brand, but REI’s are $80.

Picked up a couple of Costco's "Gerry" down sweaters for $29.99 each and wore in the Cascades in freezing weather. Great value!

They have some Eddie Bauer puffies for about $50 too.

They’ve usually got a few things that are hard to beat, dollar for dollar, for most of us.

Bought up in 2016 for a brown bear hunt and they were fine.

My wife picked up a couple of those for me and I love them. I'm going to send her for a couple more.

How does the sizing run on the tops, true to size, small any talls?

My build exactly - Yosemite Sam!

Harder than hell trying to find an undershirt/shirt to fit right and finding a comfortable car to sit in is damn near impossible (trucks for me).

Dang my location doesn’t have em yet


Don't you ever wonder why
In spite of all that's wrong here
There's still so much that goes so right
And beauty abounds?

The thunder rolls and the baby sighs
And the rain comes down
Don't you wanta thank someone for this?

Costco's merino socks are all I wear all winter. Usually this store would get in a shipment in the fall and when they run out, that's it for the year. This last year, they've had them all year. I still have an unopened bundle from last year that I got just in case.

Have to try those. Been buying the 32 Degree, made from recycled plastic bottles for several years. Those are cheap, warm, and very comfortable as a light base layer. I wear the short-sleeve shirts all year. They wick very well, unlike cotton, and wear like iron. Have yet to have any of that wear out. Took a while, but tbey finally realized that men needed a weiner port.

Their socks are all I wear all year. Tried some fakes from Sportsmans Guide, but they sucked. Less Merino, and wore out quickly.


What fresh Hell is this?

Never understood that concept. Easier to just pull the waist band down. But I digress...

The store here has them but they're 100% merino, not a blend. I bought one to try it and it feels great. I'm going to get several more. They're fairly thin but you can't beat $20 for real wool.

In Canada COSTCO had been selling Paraox poly/merino blend zip neck tees and long johns. Both are great items that that I much prefer to KUIU merino as they are 5X tougher, they dry out 5X faster (sweat0 and cost 1/5 as much. I have some from 5 or 6 years ago going strong. Not sure what they are selling this year. Will have to look if I get down there.
