Te Araroa Signature Merino Tee BETA


PLEASE NOTE: This tee is in development – that’s why it’s such a good price. It is not your usual technical merino tee – it’s tough and built to last. It’s also black. We wouldn’t recommend wearing it on Ninety Mile Beach in the blistering sun, but we would definitely recommend it in the Tararua and on Mount Tongariro. It’s PERFECT for section hikers – depending on the section and the season. It’s also perfect as a memento of the trail and for wearing on a regular tramp. Please read the size guide. This shirt is long and perfect for wearing with buckles.

Te Araroa Signature Merino Tee BETA is made in New Zealand using New Zealand grown and spun Merino. Buy it. Wear it. Test it. Support the trail.

Why is this called BETA? At present this product is in development. Part of that development is the testing phase. We’re confident that the tee itself will last, but it hasn’t been tested on the trail yet. That’s where you come in. We would love you to buy this tee at a reduced rate and test it for us. Let us know how it goes on our Facebook page. We are producing a limited number of these to start with at a slightly reduced price. Be in quick!
