Merino wool

Ibex is having a one day sale on several products. While they're still not cheap, the quality is good.

I have found the Icebreaker hoodies on crazy sale lately.
One of the downsides of the Internet is that it allows like-minded people to form communities, and sometimes those communities are stupid.

Modern merino wool is sort of the tech fabric du jour. Quite comfortable.

I got a pair for hiking a few years ago and recommend them over any of the synthetics I've had. Turn any pair of lightweight hiking pants into winter pants. And pass the 7 day hike no-stink test. Synthetics stink to high heaven after a couple days.
I don't have a lot of experience with vampires, but I have hunted werewolves. I shot one once, but by the time I got to it, it had turned back into my neighbor's dog.
