Imagine the cold, windy walk in to the Northern Corries shouldering a heavy climbing pack, or dragging yourself over a top out in grit season, or pedalling past hedgerows on a winter morning – you’re hot because you’re working hard, but the wind is bitingly cold.

Heavyweight 4 season base layer or snug yet stretchy summer lightweight micro fleece? Don’t sweat the classification.

Highly versatile, Laika’s dense outer face takes the edge of the wind chill, with thumb loops and a high collar for warm boost when you need it. A deep front zip gives extra ventilation, keeping you cool when working hard in colder climes.

A soft brushed back and flatlock seams make it super comfy next to the skin, whilst the outer is hardwearing enough to stand up to the rough stuff.

Two garments in one, Laika will simplify your outdoor wardrobe whilst maximising your comfort, what more do you need to know?

What is Polygiene?

Polygiene anti-odour treatmentWear more, wash less: it’s every busy adventurer’s dream…
We apply Polygiene™ to garments so that they smell less with wear and need washing less between use: ideal for that multi day getaway (and you’re doing your bit for the environment too).
 
Polygiene ™ is a silver based treatment that we apply during fabric production. The silver chloride prevents the growth of the bacteria that makes your clothes pong without interfering with the skin’s natural bacteria flora, so it’s comfortable and safe next to your skin. Polygiene ™ is bluesign ® approved (meeting the highest environmental standards) and lasts as long as your clothes do, so you’ll never need to reproof them.
 
The catch? There isn’t one! You can wear this garment day in, day out, and day back in again without causing a stink – winner!

Excellent

Excellent top. I wear it on it's own or as part of a layer system. I wore this under a Heiko jacket and a waterproof at 6000m and was warm enough (I am always cold). Nice fit and comfy next to your skin. Nice colours too

Gita
Great base layer for chilly days

The brushed back is pleasantly soft, very comfy, more a garment for those chilly days. I use it as an only layer if taking my down jacket, and I feel warm enough. Nice figure contouring slim fit.
