Non-cotton men's turtlenecks - Page 2

post #31 of 39

I agree that traditional turtlenecks are the best. In the not to distant past you could buy good quality 50-50 t-necks that looked good and did not cause much of a problem it you had a poly tshirt under them. I'd buy them and wear them as everyday wear for a year or two and them move them ito my ski gear after they began to show some wear. Can't find them today.

I just got these from EMS.  Haven't used it yet but there is a backing behind the zipper so it doesn't touch your skin.  When I tried it on, I really liked it.  The sleeves are a bit long but that is more because I'm a large Medium in the chest but a Small in sleeve length.  The price is better than the name brands too.  I've always been happy with their product and customer service is top notch.

As a follow up on this -

I've worn this about four or five times now. Very happy with it. One of my concerns was zipping the neck up all the way. I hate having that constricting feeling on my neck. What makes matters worse for me is my neck is a size larger than should be for my body. I buy shirts based on whether I'll be wearing a tie or not. A dress shirt that fits my chest and sleeve length won't let be button the neck button.

All that to say, it is a nice comfortable fit through the body and the neck size is a perfect fit! Very comfortable. It has thumb holes and the sleeves seem slightly longish but that's more about me than the shirt. I'm a medium body on a small frame with a large neck. I blame the Marine Corp and not my Parents.biggrin.gif

No issues with the zipper either. I do wear a lightweight base, mid weight next and this on top. Works great even on crazy cold days with my Patagonia shell and synthetic liner.

This line of tech wick seems different than past models. Feels different and fits different. Very happy with it.

I looked at the Techwick last night. They're OK. Not much of a "turtleneck". They have a heavier weight made out of polarmax (apparently Patagonia's patent on caprilene has expired) that I liked better.

So far, I think the Hot Chilly's solid roll tneck is what I'm looking for. Hard to find in white unless I order from Hot Chilly's for $40 a pop.

If anyone sees white XL cheaper, please send me the link.

Thanks!

If only it hadn't rained those couple of days!!!!!!

There's MANY different Techwicks at EMS. The one I suggested as a base layer is an L1, and there's an L2 and L3 as well, but they're in a completely different group of Techwicks in the store. The L1,L2,L3's are more expensive, but made out of much better material.
