Quick Overview

This is Ragged Mountain's venerable Guide Shirt - but this time we've used a 28%/72% wool/polyester blend. It boasts a very high insulation rating for its negligible weight, and it wicks moisture and breathes especially well when you're active. There's a stand-up collar and a generous quarter-zip. The hem is cut longer in the back to keep it tucked under your hipbelt or harness. This popular shirt is a real workhorse, with true alpine styling. Machine wash cold.

Details

The Guide Shirt is back by popular demand, and remains one of Ragged Mountain's signature garments. We made this version from Polartec® Power Dry® wool blend, which uses 28% wool fibers combined with 72% polyester fibers to get the best of both worlds. There's a subtle grid pattern on the inside to reduce bulk and trap warm air, so you know it will keep you warmer than you deserve. We added a smidge of extra length to the tail to insure that it stays where it belongs, especially when you're wearing a harness or a hipbelt. Ski patrollers and mountaineering guides (and their partners!) like the fact that their bare skin doesn't show every time they bend over to adjust their skis or crampons. 
The lightweight fabric breathes and wicks moisture like a champ, but if you decide to shed the layer entirely, it will cram into the tiniest space in your pack. The Guide Shirt sports a great-looking stand-up collar, and the deep zipper means you can pull it on or off over a helmet. You can use it as an element in your multi-component layering system, or treat it as a quick add-on when the shadow comes across the headwall. Then, when you're back at the car, just hop in and head for civilization; with its classic alpine styling, there's no need to change out of the Guide Shirt just because you're off the hill.
Machine wash cold.
