Yeah, you dont look very stinky

Synthetic dries faster, is more durable and isnt as itchy. Easy decision.

Synthetic does dry faster....but polypro melts in the dryer, and any synthetic will melt close to a fire. You have to practically put a flame on merino to get it to burn. Merino isn't itchy either.

There are definitely pros and cons to merino, as there is to synthetic. But, let's keep the facts straight.
