100% genuine New Zealand merino wool makes our Kepler short-sleeve top ideal for a smorgasboard of outdoor activities in the mountains this summer.
The lightweight baselayer top is a staple piece of most peoples layering systems. Kepler fits right in there with its excellent performance over a vast range of conditions. Quite simply it is a garment that does many things really rather well.
Breathable, wicking, fast drying and famously odour resistant, merino can be worn in the hot, in the cold, in the wet and in the dry. For all round comfort over extended durations merino is our baselayer of choice.
The short sleeves leave your arms exposed, increasing breathability and articulation, but be sure to cover up in the sun! Kepler is designed to be worn snug, but doesn’t need to be so skin tight that you feel self conscious in the pub at the end of the day.
The benefits of Merino
Merino wool is a natural material with properties that make it ideal for the changeable conditions you will experience during mountain activities, maybe that’s why New Zealand Merino sheep look so content strutting around their hillsides.
When you are on a mission you don’t want to be changing your layers with every turn in the weather. When it is cold Merino keeps you warm by trapping small pockets of air within its fibres. When its warm the same fibres will help to whisk moisture away from your skin so it can evaporate back into the water cycle! If you have been trapped in your garment for several days the antibacterial properties of a chemical called lanolin will help you stop ponging.
Merino baselayer won’t make you fitter, it won’t make you go faster, but it will help you feel more comfortable when you find yourself in uncomfortable circumstances.

No need to feel sheepish
Simply the best baselayers I've ever bought. Super comfy, non-itchy (even for someone with uber sensitive skin) and really well cut. The colours are lovely, they wash well and they are nice enough to wear around town. Both my tops have seen significant wear this winter, and I'm seriously considering getting another set. As ever, brilliant service from Alpkit. You won't get fleeced with this deal, folks. Okay, I'll stop ramming these ba-a-a-d sheep puns down your throats now...
