We don’t discriminate when it comes to enjoying the great outdoors: we run, we ride, we hike, we climb. We understand the value of multi-purpose kit and the importance of a baselayer that works as hard as you do. 

Made from a 100% recycled polyester fabric that’s incredibly soft, light and fast-drying, the Vayper is designed to be a true next-to-skin base layer, ideal for a range of high output activities. The close, athletic cut allows the Vayper to pull sweat away from the skin much more rapidly when you’re working hard and the ultralight fine knit fabric retains less moisture, meaning it dries quicker. Polygeine® treated fabric keeps the Vayper pong-free after multiple uses and allows you to go longer between wash cycles. 

Highly effective as a cool standalone layer in milder conditions, the Vayper also fits neatly underneath midlayers and bike jerseys as part of your layering system. Despite its silky ‘barely there’ feel, when worn underneath layers the fabric traps narrow pockets of still, warm air, adding extra warmth without the bulk.

Environmental Considerations

​​Wear 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!​​

Vayper mens short sleeve T shirt

Bought the Vayper short sleeve T shirt in the xxl size as I am 46" chest and it fits close but not restrictively so. Feels superb next to the skin and very comfortable. Bought one each of the two colour choices and now sending off for two more. I use them for walking around my local moors and hills and also going out to the pub for which they are excellent on both accounts. Just wish that there were more colour choices. superb product, as good as my usual Rab ones, but much cheaper. They wash well and do not need any ironing. Well done Alpkit.
