We don’t discriminate when it comes to enjoying the great outdoors: we run, we ride, we hike, we climb. Becoming a hot, sweaty mess is all part of the fun... so long as your base layer 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, keeping you comfortable year-round, whether you’re pulling on your walking boots, trail runners or cycling shoes. 

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 and dries quicker, making it a highly effective standalone layer in higher temperatures. 

The Vayper also fits neatly underneath midlayers and bike jerseys as part of your layering system in cooler months. Despite its silky ‘barely there’ feel, when worn underneath layers the fabric traps pockets of still, insulating air, adding extra warmth without the bulk. 

Polygeine-treated fabric keeps the Vayper pong-free for longer and allows you to go longer between wash cycles.

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!​
