100% genuine New Zealand merino wool makes our Kepler short-sleeve top ideal for a smorgasboard of mountain activities.
Whether you’re hiking a GR route on the continent, biking through Scotland, running on cool mornings, or heading out for the Alpine summer, your base layer should keep you dry and comfortable.
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.
Flatlock seams and an anatomical cut enhance the natural next-to-skin comfort of merino.
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.
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.

Excellent merino base layer for trekking and cycling
Have been using this regularly since February 2016 and it has been an excellent purchase. Doesn't smell even after 4 or 5 days use. Great value for money and usual high quality product from Alpkit.
I am 6', 39"chest and 31" waist - no I have not mistook Alpkit for a dating site! I chose the small size and this fits perfectly, close but not tight, perfect for adding more layers on top when needed. The quality is great and the price too.
Great base layer for hiking.
My go to hiking base layer for any type of weather. Keeps you warm and dries fast. Highly recommended.
