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, or heading out for the Alpine summer.
A multi-day trip doesn’t have to leave you with a humungous pile of smelly laundry to get through. Thermoregulatory, anti-microbial, UV protective, and exquisitely soft, the Kepler base layer range is made to keep you comfortable and fresh on longer trips across a wide range of temperatures.
The lightweight baselayer top is a staple piece of most people's layering systems. Kepler lightweight superfine merino 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 our 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.
The Kepler range uses beautiful, ultrafine 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.

Darn any holes as soon as possible so they don’t grow.
Avoid snagging, vigorous machine washing, putting your finger through the fabric, and hungry moths.

Would definitely give this 5 stars, wore almost every day while walking in the Brecon Beacons in September - just wish I had brought more than one. However no worries, wash overnight and it is dry by morning! Success!
Excellent quality merino, well-made, great fit
I bought this as part of the baselayer bundle (1 short, 1 long sleeve for £55) so it was even better value. Very impressed by the quality of the fabric, the stitching and the style. The aubergine colour is exactly that - aubergine - and the weight is light but not see-through. The sleeves on the short sleeve version are just above the elbow, which I like, and the neckline is perfect, not too low to be work as a top layer. I wore this on a warm and windy walk up Pen-y-ghent, under a windproof jacket which can get a bit sweaty. The baselayer was incredibly comfortable, not one itch from any part of it, and I finished the walk in as non-smelly condition as I started it. I'd be happy to take this on a 4 day trip as my only baselayer.
