They are about 12% merino. It's on the ingredient list. Nowhere on the package does it say 100%. 80+% polypro.

You are talking about different product (base layer) I am talking about thin zip sweater (they come in different colors too!)
One I bought have on label (right under KIRKLAND) 100% extrafine merino wool.  End other label have "pure new wool Woolmark Merino Extra Fine"
So far I like it...  may be I even take it on a Hike...  smile.gif

All I can find online with 100% merino is >$59.  Maybe it's like McD's 100% pure beef.  Yes the beef is 100%, but the patty is only 60% beef, the rest is fillers, preservatives, etc.

I just took a quick look.  The jacket I tried on was the Versteeg, definitely had pit zips.  MH website says Versteeg has pit zips.  Price may have been $85?????

There may have been another MH jacket there, cheaper, without pit zips.  I plan to go back this evening.  Will advise.

my wife is at costco in smokey point so I asked her to check it out.  It's the "runoff" for $45 and no it does not have pit zips.

They also have the "nitrous" down jacket for $129.

If I had to wager a guess, I'd say Kirkland.
