EWH Reviews Terramar Climasense
As many of you know, I have gone on and on in this blog about the products from Terramar. While some products have been awesome and some good, nothing has knocked my socks off with consistently high quality as the Climasense line from Terramar.
I have been trying to get my grubby little paws on this line since it debuted in 2013 and boy am I glad I did. This fabric (whatever it is, some sort of weave from the gods it is) manages to keep you cool in hot temps (a must have here in SoCal) and also keeps you warm in cooler temps (a must have when visiting ice cream stores here in SoCal). The Climasense line packs in the normal wicking and the temp regulation all while making the shirt super comfortable (best of all synthetics and gives merino a run for its money) to wear and pretty snazzy when trying to look fashionable at mile 10 of a trail.
I have both the Climasense trailhead regular crew shirt as well as this collared bad boy. The shirt is a half zip and the collar was welcomed as it acts as a natural barrier for the sun. Often I use BUFFs or bandanas to protect from the sun but with a popped collar (what am I, a frat boy?), the sun's effect is greatly reduced.
It definitely zips down all the way to half-way on the front, which may or may not be your cup of tea. If you are wearing tea as a shirt, that is your business. As for me, while I prefer a quarter zip, I didn't mind the half zip and while this shirt is meant as a baselayer, having a half zip means I can use this a layer with other baselayers so it can do double duty.
Terramar's Climasense is unbelievably solid and useful and comfy and sleek. If you are looking for baselayers, this is it, this is the one.

I am an ambassador for Terramar and was provided this shirt for review purposes. Its the Internet, take things with a grain of salt and learn from them what you can. I truly enjoyed this product but get no money whether you buy it or not.
