    Costco Has Merino

    Haven't seen it myself. But apparently Costco has Merino wool shirts and socks now. Something like $20 for shirts and $12 for a sock 3 Pack.

    Will verify this weekend, cause that price is crazy good, and I have a Costco excursion planned.

    They had shirts and pants last year or the year before. I got a pair and they're decent. I forget the blend.

    I got one as well (long sleeve T). Can't remember the exact blend, but it works well, especially for the price I paid. Not a nice as my icebreaker long sleeve T, but way better than most 'athletic' shirts/under shirts you'll get elsewhere.

    I have one too, L/S zip mock turtle. The merino content was actually quite minimal (10%?) if I remember correctly so definitely not in the same class as "real" merino goods, but I've had it for a few months and a bunch of washings and agree with your assessment that it was a heck of a lot better in terms of feel and performance (resistance to odour, etc.) than other athletic tops made of purely synthetic materials in a similar or even higher price class.
    Nuke the entire site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

    You are probably referring to this one?

    I have one of these as well, but couldn't remember if I got it at Costco or somewhere else, so your post leads me to believe I got it at Costco.

    You are right, it's not bad and I like it, but I'm pretty sure I also got a more regular L/S t-shirt at Costco as well that is a much higher Merino content (80+%). I'll check tonight. I was shocked to see it there and I'm pretty sure it was still in the $20-30 range. I like it better than the mock turtle, it handles moisture better, but I agree, the mock turtle is still a good garment for the price compared to what else it out there.

    Yes, that's the one in your link below. Now that you've made the distinction, I'll have to look for the other, newer product that's being discussed in this thread.

    Quick little googling suggests it's this brand. Looks like what I have and available at local Costco. Can't find the details of % merino just yet.

    Our Costco merino socks wore through faster than any other brand. They just don't have the construction or merino content to make good outdoor activity wear. Ymmv.

    They are 100% merino wool. I bought 3 from costco last year and they are quite warm. I just wore a cycling jacket over the shirt and I was quite warm fat biking at -15C.

    My Costo longsleeve T's say 100% Merino. I love them for riding up to around 20C. They are quite thin and the quality is pretty good, especially for $20.
