    “FirstSpear ACM Base 100 – 38? Wool, 50? Polyester, 12? Modal”

    That’s far too low a wool percentage in my book. Mixed materials are okay when you’re worried about wear and tear, but 100% wool will outperform them any time. Personally I do not bother with mixed material except for socks, where 100% wool socks wear out fast.

    Moisture wicking will suffer and the clothing will stink when the wool percentage is this low, unfortunately.

      It also negates the FR properties of wool. It seems to me that First Spear is getting away from the professional end user and more into 5.11 type lifestyle market. I know sof elements that have had no luck reaching out to first spear to meet gear requirements. Meanwhile it seems anyone with a youtube channel or blog gets sent stuff from First Spear to ‘review’. I guess this is the nature of the industry now: the profits are in making products for social media, not for the men and women that quietly work to keep us safe.
