Breathable and comfortable merino long johns, the unsung hero of your technical wardrobe.

Our merino long johns are made with soft merino jersey which wicks moisture away from the skin and dries fast. They are a slim, next-to-skin fit to hug your body and optimise layering. A high waist line means that the long johns can be pulled up away from that pinch point where other garments in your layering system might sit. The wide elasticated waistband helps avoid uncomfortable abrasion points when wearing a rucksack or exposing skin to the elements when riding your bike or reaching up to that distance hold.

Wear them under your ski suit, your tech soft-shell or simply as a special treat inside your sleeping bag at the end of a big day out.

The benefits of Merino
Kepler is made using only the finest sustainably sourced non-mulesed New Zealand 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.

Fantastic quality and great service!

Ordered these as a gift - they arrived extremely quickly (despite all the christmas post) with a lovely handwritten note to say thanks! The quality of the material is absolutely fantastic - softest merino I've felt by a long way compared to Icebreaker, Crane etc. smile Definitely recommend!

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
