Me And The Terramar TXO 2.0
You ready for another #TerramarThursday ?
Awhile ago I was fortunate enough to receive the TXO 2.0 shirt from Terramar. According to the website, the shirt is made out of polyester and spandex and the shirt also contains "activated carbon with nano-silver embedded within yarn" which sounds pretty fancy schmancy to me.
How does it work in the field? Well I took the shirt to Yosemite when it snowed on me in May and the shirt was a great choice. The interior of the shirt feels like a nice soft fleece and kept me warm during the snow squall and the outerlayer definitely looks like it could take a beating in the elements.
I decided to take the shirt with me on my recent trip to Joshua Tree and used the shirt as I was "chilling" in base camp that night.
The shirt by itself kept me warm in the desert night all by itself as the temp hovered in the 50s. I did use a jacket later on in the night but I was surprised how warm the shirt actually is. It is also good for cool desert mornings as well...
Forgive the terribleness of my mug, it was about 6:30am when I took this pic.
The reason I like this baselayer is that is thicker than others and really provides you with a sense of warmth. It is not an end-all, be-all you still need to layer with other gear but it is a pretty kicking shirt.
I am part of the Terramar Tribe. I try to review items like this as honestly as possible. Whether I liked it or not, I don't gain anything if you go out and buy these things. Its the Internet, take everything with a grain of salt and gain from it what you can.
