I wore it all night, sleeping in a hammock above the snow-covered ground, and again, stayed warm. And on the days with clear skies but still cold, I wear it with out a jacket and stay warm.
Wil Rickards from ENGEARMENT
I feel clammy and cannot shake a feeling of cold. In alpaca, my body felt cozy all evening.
Jury of World’s Outdoor Trade Show
The clothing is equally comfortable to wear whether it’s hot or cold. The fine fibers absorb almost no water - neither rain nor sweat.
ULTRALIGHT | HIGH-PERFORMANCE | ECOLOGICAL
MOVE LIGHTEST: Alpaca fiber is naturally lightweight but durable. Comfortably pack alpaca tops and bottoms and travel with a single backpack that can last from weeks to months.
FEEL CLEAN AND FRESH: Naturally hygienic; almost 0% moisture absorption keeps your body clean. Almost no sweat absorption keeps bacteria and smell away, making Alpaca tops and bottoms reusable.
STAY COMFORTABLE: Soft, at 18 microns and naturally breathable. Alpaca clothing helps you move freely and feel connected with your surroundings.
HIKE FURTHER: AoA Alpaca Hiking Gear are specifically designed for full coverage in all weather conditions. Alpaca layers, tops, and bottoms protect your entire body in any hike, moving you further than ever!
COMFORT IN THE EXTREMES: Alpaca fiber naturally wicks away sweat without absorbing it. You and your clothes stay dry, keeping your body protected on rough hikes.
HIKE WITH THE BREEZE: Soft and breathable fibers keep you comfortable no matter how difficult your surroundings are.
CONNECT WITH NATURE: When hiking with pure Royal Alpaca, you are using a renewable fiber from free-ranging Alpacas from the Andes Mountains. A big step away from synthetics while being technically superior, Alpaca is the way to go!
PART OF THE ENVIRONMENT: Alpacas are unique in how they interact with their environment. Their footprint is minimalistic, damaging the least amount of vegetation as they roam the ranges freely. As they eat, their teeth cut the grass instead of crushing it. This allows new grass to continue growing without damaging the plant's root systems, protecting the ecosystem.

This shirt made a great gift for my fiancé. It's so soft and light. He loves it.
I am impressed with the quality of the fabric! It is substantial, but not so thick that you can’t wear them under other pants (if you must). I especially appreciate that the leg seams were sewn on the inside — not serged on the outside, so they look professional with skirts and dresses. Overall, they look great, and hold their shape well, even after a week of wear. I’d love to see these offered in more colors! :)
Kiss those merino n synthetic digs goodbye, boys n girls. I already put the base layer full zip neck 230 through 50+ miles, and it outperforms all other materials. I sweat like no one you've ever met in your life (no intestines or colon) and my merino stays too heavy from all of it, while my synthetic clothes are drenched when I reach the ridge and then I'm standing there freezing in the wind while it's 68 degrees n sunny. The alpaca resists absorption, dries super super fast, and maintains its R.
I am 5'10" 170 lbs and the full zip neck fits me perfect in an XL, whereas the crew T-shirt fits me perfect in a L.
I will add merino bothers my skin sometimes, like when I where my merino wool cap, it leaves the skin on my forehead red and irritated from the oils, even after numerous washes. No such problem with alpaca.
These are obviously well made. I believe they are going to hold up. How could it possibly be improved? 1. Since this indeed has a neck, the zipper should be moved off center so it stops riding my Adam's apple. 2. Chest pocket (zip) with through-hole for those of us refusing to buy those easily lost/dropped wireless earpods.
AoA staff answered alllll my questions (like, on four different occasions throughout the day) and shipped quick. Great company!
If you keep your head up, you might forget you're wearing a shirt. It's that light/thin/soft/comfy.
I'm 5'10" 170 lbs and the v neck shirt 110 fits me perfect in a Large (whereas the base layer full zip neck 230 fits me perfect in a XL).
I like the short/tight sleeves. I already washed it once by hand with Castile soap (dunno if this is proper, but it's what I had), laid it flat, and the wrinkles worked themselves out on the trail (I didn't iron).
Blue would be awesome, but the lavender looks great!
Fit perfectly. Just like I was hoping! Thanks, let’s go play outside!
Feel wonderful. Warm and cozy.
Melissa was a great help I love my hoodie and yes I would buy another one arrive on time and really recommend to buy would not be disappointed thank you melissa for all your great help
Love it, won't be taking it off for a long time, super warm for it's weight which is nothing almost. Only negative thing I can say is the thumb holes are too small. No big deal. Will be in backpack every trip.
Socks feel nice and fit well.
MEN'S SWEAT PANTS (JOGGERS) - 230 Royal Alpaca
The medium size fits perfect. Very good quality and luxurious fabric. I love my leggings is so comfortable.
The medium fit is just right. I felt the long sleeve around my arms is pretty itchy wonder if there is a mix of wool. I wear a thin undershirt so the body area is not itchy. Overall I like the shirt it regulates body temperature. I don’t feel overheated. Unless I am wearing a down jacket.
Great t shirt
MEN'S V NECK SHIRT - 110 Royal Alpaca
It’s very lightweight, soft, and just warm enough for chilly weather.
Lightweight but warm, super soft. Dries quickly. Love it!!
Most comfortable socks I’ve ever worn. Soft and keep my feet warm in the cold weather. Thick enough to keep in heat and not make your feet overheat. Would definitely buy more if different kinds came out
