Smartwool Men’s Merino 150 T-Shirt

Merino wool is the ideal material for travel clothes—even in the summer. The lightweight fabric is moisture-wicking and also naturally inhibits odor, which means it’ll stay fresh for multiple wears. That means it isn’t the most affordable material—but during Backcountry’s sale, you can get this basic crewneck T-shirt in both navy blue and black for 25 percent off.
