Kepler Zip Top [Mens] pure merino base layer
Alpine summer, Scottish winter, Autumn on the gritstone… You don’t want your base layer to be as seasonally limited as your outdoor activities.
A multi-day trip doesn’t have to leave you with a humungous pile of laundry. Thermoregulatory, anti-microbial, UV protective, and exquisitely soft, Kepler base layer keeps you comfortable and fresh on longer trips across a range of temperatures.
A high collar keeps your neck protected from draughts or the sun whilst the ¼ zip neck opening gives ventilation when needed. Thumb loops keep the full-length sleeves in place, ensuring your forearms stay well protected.
Flatlock seams and an anatomical cut enhance the natural next-to-skin comfort of merino. Kepler is designed to have a flattering fit that isn’t too ‘base layery’, so you’ll fit right in at the pub after a day on the hill.
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.
Merino baselayer won’t make you fitter, it won’t make you faster, but it will help you feel more comfortable when you find yourself in uncomfortable circumstances.

Very pleased with my Kepler Zip Top baselayer which I bought at Hathersage. It does exactly what is says in the description and is very good value.
Used this on wee bike tour wild camping last week on my Sonder Camino SRAM Ti. (Photos won't load) Fort William - Inverness on trail. Then across country to Skye via Plockton etc-Mallaig and back to Fort William.
I wore this top the whole time washing once. It's definately my Best Buy for a long time. Comfortable, easy on the skin and washes and dries easily. I'll have a spare soon 10/10
Just got back from a weekend trip with mixed weather conditions warm, very wet, cool, dry and the Kelper top served me well either under my waterproof jacket in downpours preventing that clammy feeling and keeping me warm in the evenings. Really appreciate the fact it’s not skin tight like a lot of other Merino wool garments; perfect for my needs as a mid layer.
As ever Alpkit standards with all kit and clothing is superb.
I have this and the non-zip l/s version (see my other review) - the zipped version looks a bit more 'technical' and sporty and thus gets a bit less use than its zipless sibling but is the same amazing quality. Nice high collar if you're concerned about drafts or sunburn.
