I'm not afraid to admit that I'm biased or try to explain why.

Its not hard to imagine that it all works, I'm old like most of us, I remember wearing cotton longjohns hehe.

Yea the $$/durability issue with merino and even my patagonia stuff seems really delicate - is definitely easily overcome by other products.

You know I have to chime in when called out like that haha.

We do agree though that Merino is always better. I just wear more UA stuff because it's not nearly as fragile.

UA just flat out works for me. I also like compression layers, not just from UA either. Nike's stuff is actually good too, but I refuse to give them my money lol.

I really do notice that I'm not as sore when I am wearing compression layers the next day.
