Disappointed

I bought this thinking that as it's 70% merino wool it wouldn't smell too much. I was wrong, it's hardly any better than other materials and very disappointing bearing in mind the high price.

Forgot I was wearing it!

Very comfy- not had a chance to try it in extreme hot or cold weather yet but so far so good!

great shirt but a huge price increase

These are great t-shirts but they do come up a bit small. The thing i'm most confused by is how they keep increasing in price. The first time I bought one it was priced at £11.99 a few months later they had increased to £14.99 and now 4 months on since I bought my first one they are now priced at nearly double the original price at £19.99. Would I recommend this product... at the original price yes, they get 5 stars but now the price is nearly double.. I have to say NO. I wonder if Decathlon could explain this?

Sadly too short

Fine enough tee but too short in body - if your tall, look elsewhere or be prepared to show some fresh !!

A decent buy

I love these, what I would class as, lightweight base layers. They are better than pure merino on that they are tougher ( washing machine etc) than 100% merino. They are just comfortable to wear. I can say with certainty that as part of a layered system they do their job of keeping me warm. No obvious build up of sweat like you get with cotton. Not sure about sweaty smell residue because I change them frequently. I'm sure they do that job as well in a long distance walk as well if worn continously for a number of days. Well see when lockdown ends and I can get away for days at a time. I like them.

Discovery

I have always avoided wool products cos the6 make me itch. This doesn't. Its warm and comfortable. Don't want to take it off.... My only suggestion would be to have two versions: a slightly heavier weight one for winter? Colin talbot

Bargain

Can’t say too much about durability after only a few weeks of use but it feels like a good quality tee. Also a bargain at this price point for a merino tee. Comparable to icebreaker at a fraction of the cost.

Worth it.

Nice fit and comfortable. Well worth the price.

Itchy and uncomfortable

I decided to order one of these before purchasing more of the same. The material is incredibly itchy and uncomfortable, with terrible moisture wicking. Wouldn't recommend.

Very abrasive material for the chest area.

I am a man and I bought two of these for a bike tour. Over the tour I felt discomfort around the breast area. After a few days I noticed that the tips of my nipples were red raw. I have never worn merino wool before but my suspicions is that there is too much acrylic (30%) to feel the benefits and that is what is causing the abrasiveness. Do yourself a favour and stick to 100% wool. Unfortunately I have worn them now so that is £30 down the drain.

Hi, thanks for taking the time to review our Forclaz Travel 500 Wool T-Shirt.


I'm sorry to hear that you had a negative experience with this product, I know how painful nipple chafing can be! The reason we blend wool with synthetic fibres in this product is that it makes it much more durable, a pure wool t-shirt is susceptible to holes and ripping, and since one of the key characteristics of our travel products is durability, we blend it to help promote this. We do produce some 100% wool products though, such as the Forclaz Techwool 190 and Techwool 190 Zip baselayers which perhaps would be more suitable.


However we will pass on the feedback with regards to the abrasiveness of the material that you experienced. We constantly strive to improve our offer and as we want our travel products to be as comfortable as possible, as well as durable, your feedback can help us with this.

Regards

Additional Product informations

Composition

Main fabric

  • 30% Acrylic
  • 70% Wool

Why choose wool?

Wool is the best material for trekkers on the go. It is a material, the natural properties of which, limit bad odours. This means that you can wear your t-shirt for several days without washing it and therefore take fewer clothes in your backpack!
