Wool Cycling Shirts

post #1 of 8

What do you guys think of those "new wool" cycling shirt made by companies like Ibex? Are they more comfortable, cooler and better smelling than the high-tech fibers?

I've been wondering the same thing. I know I love my thin smartwool sport socks for cycling - so maybe a jersey might be worth a try?

They're OK, but I find that I don't wear mine much. The other fabrics feel better, I just wear the wool if I am feeling nostalgic.

I wear an Ibex Flint t-shirt as a base layer for skiing and I find it very comfortable temperature regulating-wise, but I notice sometimes the underarms can get a bit irritated but that could just be a reaction to the aluminum in deodorant. So, that's my only hesitation for a wool cycling shirt.

I still have some old Swobo wool jerseys... eh... hopefully they've gotten better

the synthetic polyfabs perform better in all conditions.

wool's selling points:

1) natural
2) doesn't retain the funk
3) doesn't have that wicked need to be static-laden and clingy to the wearer
