This soft and stretchy base layer is made from 100% recycled materials. It provides a comfortable fit and has a good range of movement making it perfect for most activities. It can be worn on its own on cool days, keeping you warm, or as part of a layering system when temperatures plummet. The sleeves are a good length with thumb loops to stop them riding up and keep your wrists warm. The flatlock seams prevent chafing if you are wearing a pack. On a multi-day expedition this top fared well, only beginning to smell after several days continual wear. It comes in a range of patterns and washes well, retaining its shape.
