How to Find Your Measurements
Measure around your chest at the widest part.
Measure from the high shoulder seam to the bottom hem of the shirt.
Measure from the collar seam along the length of your arm to your wrist.
Wool is a great natural alternative to plastic synthetic fibres. It is low in energy and water consumption and exhibits extremely high performing properties. Merino wool fibres absorb and pull moisture vapour away from your body unlike synthetics which can only wick away the moisture once it has condensed. One square inch of skin on a merino sheep produces about 4 times as many wool fibres as other breeds of sheep.
Merino wool has paradoxical properties making it ideal for use year round. In the summer it is ideal for wicking moisture away from your body. In the winter, the natural structure of the fibre inherently blocks larger drops of water while continuing to wick away vapour. When vapour is absorbed into wool it binds to the chemical structure of the fibres and small amounts of energy are released in the form of heat. This principle is known as the "heat of sorption".
The crimped structure of wool fibres creates fabrics loaded with tiny air spaces which act as nature’s most efficient insulator adding to wool’s reputation for warmth and comfort. It is the air trapped between the wool fibres and not the fibres themselves that keep you warm. Because Merino wool fibres are smaller in diameter and they are more numerous that coarser wools, they trap more air pockets and keep you warmer.
All of our merino wool products use ethically sourced wool from New Zealand farms. This means the animals are treated fairly, they don't practise mulesing or tail docking. These farms also practise sustainable land management.
Chromag merino is a staple in our household, from the bike, to a hike, to work, to the couch, feels good everywhere!
Full disclosure I am a chromag athlete but this is my favourite winter riding shirt as it works great as your only layer or as a base layer. Just enough ventilation and the right amount of warmth for those cold winter rides!
This is my favorite top. I wear it riding when its cool or... just not that hot, but I also wear it at work, when skiing, whatever! Its warm, comfortable and doesn't smell! I'm 6'2" and 180lbs and large fits me perfect. Unlike a lot of jerseys, this one has long enough arms for when you are hanging on to handlebars!
Well, its from sheep, not goat, but its so good! I have been using Chromag Merino shirts for a few years and Love them! SO good, the material is perfect as a winter base layer, or single summer layer. Keep up the awesome WOOLY Work!
This wool blend is insanely good. Super comfy, I normally find wool itchy but not this. Great to sweat in, really does a good job of managing moisture.
Would have given 5 stars, but it does tear a little easy. Had a bit of a crash in it and I think a synthetic jersey would have held up better.
This one feels a little looser than say the Dominion but I kinda prefer a looser fit anyway. And the material is so good. I'm 6ft 175lbs and I got the large.
Great jersey for most days on the bike! Also makes a great layer for other activities. Worn 100+ days last year, biking , hiking, skiing and washed many times - it's still holding up great.
This jersey is absolutely perfect. I'm taller (6'3) and this jersey fits me perfect, tall, and slim-fitting with no tight spots in the back shoulder area (which I often have problems with). I purchased one to try out an imitatively ordered 2 more. Regulates my temp perfectly in all weather and not itchy, thanks to merino. Also good for other sports and activities as it doesn't look like a clown suit, looks more like a regular long sleeve T. I wear it for almost everything.
