For hot days, do you recommend this vs Hot Weather V-Neck Base Layer
Why did you change the ratio of merino to polyster vs the previous version of the merino mesh (which was 70% polyester / 30% merino)? I have one of the previous iterations - would you expect them to perform very differently?
How does the sleeveless merino mesh base layer compare to the pro team sleeveless base layer for wicking, warmth, ventilation, etc?? Thanks
