Base layer guide
A great base layer is the foundation of outdoor clothing. The purpose is to keep you dry and warm next to your skin. We have three base layer families: Airborn and Activist in natural fibers and Alpha in synthetic. Which one you choose is a matter of personal taste, but you can always rest assured. All our base layers and designed for ultimate comfort, performance and sustainability.
Natural or synthetic?
If you prefer base layers in wool or polyester is a question of personal preference. Our Alpha base layer in recycled and recyclable polyester is ultra strong and very quick drying. Airborn and Activist in wool provides great warmth but also feels cool when it’s warm outside. Wool is naturally odor resistant and therefore doesn’t require washing as frequently. We never mix synthetic and natural fibers and the reason is to make all garments recyclable.
