After reading about their new pullover, http://blog.kuiu.com/2012/10/30/new-merino-230-zip-t-crew/ , I am curious for opinions on how many benefits of merino may or may not be lost, particularly no smell with the fleece/poly on the inside? I view this piece as a mid weight layer/pullover and would plan on still wearing a light merino top underneath so it may not matter at all. I think the heat retention will be much better. Ive been looking for a piece that would be warmer than a 230-250 pure merino top for midweight layering and had been considering the chama hoodie from First Lite too but had some warmth concerns. I did order the Kuiu 230 and can let you know what I think when I get my hands on it this weekend.
