Bloodline Cascade Merino Shirt
Our new Cascade range has a sentimental meaning to the team at Bloodline and it is named after an epic piece of Nelson Lakes National park wilderness.
Combining comfort and functionality, our Cascade Merino 1/4-Zip shirt is made to be versatile and suits a wide range of missions. Featuring 18.5-micron merino wool, this breathable base layer has the natural odor control of merino which will be a popular feature during multi-day trips.
This shirt has been thrashed while hunting, hiking, and running ultra-marathons and has earned the team's seal of approval.
The feeling of unzipping that extra long zip as you grind up that massive ridge is bliss.
You will love the feel of our soft Merino wool on your skin.

EXPLAINING WHAT 180 AND 200 GSM MEANS?
Here at BL Gear, we try not to get carried away with fancy terms Legends like you don't really care about when all you want is good gear, so here is a short breakdown of what GSM means.
GSM in fabric, also known as grams per square meter is simply the metric measurement of the weight of a fabric. This measurement helps one decide on the best weight to buy, considering the usage of the material at hand. The higher the GSM number, the denser the fabric will be.
JUST A SIDE NOTE...
We endeavor to be honest and transparent with our customers at all times, we think it's important to note that these are not designed for smashing through the thickest South Island monkey scrub, merino can be susceptible to getting ripped and tears easier than synthetics. Thrash the cr*ap out of this shirt but just keep this in mind.
