Women’s PhD® Racerback Bra 

  • The outer fabric is smooth: allowing clothing to move over it freely without sticking  [45% merino wool, 51% nylon, 4% elastane]
  • The inner lining wicks away moisture and is really soft against the skin (no chafing experienced) [75% merino wool, 25% polyester]
  • The moulded cups and thick elastic terry-loop band provide comfortable medium support for hiking, jogging, kayaking etc. 
  • Wide straps are slightly padded and don’t cut or chafe. 
  • Sizing Notes: I am wearing a large, cup fit is perfect, band is 1/4-1/2″ too big. Usually a 34, DD. 

Women’s PhD® Seamless Boy Short

    • 80% merino wool, 17% polyester, 3% elastane
    • These underwear are soft, stretchy and generally comfy.
    • They fit a bit ‘cheeky’ and the waistband is higher in the front than I would like. Throughout the day, they tend to ride up and stay put, not uncomfortable. No chafing, good wicking and easy to hand wash and dry overnight. 
    • Sizing Notes: I am wearing a medium. Usually a medium. Fits true to size.

I have used all these SmartWool items pretty much nonstop for the last 5 months while I have been working and travelling. They have tagged along for hiking in Scotland, sailing in Greece, paddling in Ontario, hiking and sea kayaking in Newfoundland, and regardless of the weather or activity have always kept me comfortable.
