Packs tiny, dries fast, no odor

When I got my last Sierra box, I said to myself, "I ordered five Terramar t-necks!? Was that really necessary?", when I tried on the first one.. the light blue.. I was very glad to have it in so many colors now! It is really nice, has a lovely sheen from the silk, so it looks much nicer than cotton for work. I had a similar lightweight silk t-shirt I used on a trip to Bali ten years ago, that was absolutely perfect for travel as I could wash it at night and it would be dry and ready to wear in the morning. I accidentally left that silk t-shirt there on the island, and have been mourning its loss ever since.
I have never had a problem with silk knits having odor like fast-drying synthetics can do, so I really recommend a silk knit like this for travel or hiking if you want to pack light. A looser fitting t-shirt style in a silk knit is perfect for travel to tropical climates. An added bonus is since the silk looks nicer, it can also be dressed up. I wore my t-shirt style silk knit with sarongs to nicer dinners in Bali, and was very appropriately dressed.. a side note- sarongs also double as wrap or beach blanket, again..great for tropical climates. I wore my silk knit nearly daily in a.. washing with bar soap nightly, and never had a problem with odors. (with synthetics I sometimes notice underarm stench within a few hours)

I consider silk knits such as these essential to lightweight travel.
And at the STP prices LOAD UP on multiple colors like I did, you wont be sorry!

I thought I would use these as base layers as stated, and thats perfect for backpacking... but for work, these are pretty enough to wear with a fitted cami underneath to smooth out bra lines.

The light blue is my favorite.. it's not a boring baby blue, it has a slight touch of aqua and is really, really a beautiful shade.

I got white, black, navy, olive, and the light blue.
