Neck warmer, bandana, helmet liner, beanie, face mask, ear band, wrist band, ankle band, a tasteful neckerchief for your pet…

Call it what you want, (we call it an superfine merino neck warmer), but this incredibly versatile bit of gear is warm, UV protective, anti-microbial, and even flame retardant. We never leave the house without ours.

Well, sometimes we do, but we usually regret it.


The Kepler range uses beautiful, superfine merino for a luxuriously comfortable next-to-skin feel.

With thermoregulatory and anti-microbial properties, merino wool is more than a match for day-in, day-out use across the temperatures in changeable mountain conditions, help you to stay fresh, comfortable, and protected no matter what the weather decides.

We use 100% natural New Zealand merino from non-mulesing farms.

Can't live without it!!

On a recent trip to Nepal, this was probably the best bit of kit I had! From the fume filled streets of Kathmandu to the -30degrees of Gorak Shep, I don't think it ever came off my head! I actually gave it to my guide, so I need another one - pronto!



Kepler Merino Review in Velome

Mountain biker Jessica Strange puts our Kepler Merino top to the test in South Wales

The top is really lightweight, soft and totally breathable which is ideal for a day's riding as I felt both warm and "airy"


my Alpkit Merino wool layer whist riding was really comfortable


Great quality, fit and features

Women Climb Kepler Merino Top Review

I love the design of this women specific base layer top. It looks as good on its own after a hard day of climbing as it does at the crag under all your layers. The people at Alpkit have clearly thought about every aspect of this garment and tested it out to create a beautifully designed and functional garment that is perfectly fit for purpose

Wild Running Top Mens Winter Running Gear

Sim Bensons ideal winter running gear

Merino wool base layers are normally the warmest, and as long as they are ethically produced you can feel happy wearing a natural fibre. I wear either my Alpkit Kepler (RRP £29) or my Howies short-sleeve base layer (RRP £45) pretty much all the time. They look great as well as performing brilliantly in all but the warmest weather. Synthetic base layers dry faster than Merino, but Merino retains its warmth even when wet
