Here at ioMerino, our high performance thermal layers will do a mighty job at keeping you warm and comfortable when you’re on the water – kayaking, rowing, canoeing, white water rafting – AND underneath your waterproofs/wetsuit when you’re in the water (i.e. snorkeling and diving) for extra warmth and insulation when you need it the most. Unlike synthetic fabrics that can make you much colder and more uncomfortable when wet, MicroMerino® fabrics will stay warm when wet right through. And with natural breathability, temperature regulation, moisture wicking and odour-resistance, it’s no wonder extreme kayakers and adventurers across the globe opt for ioMerino – whether they’re on the water, in the water or heading to and from the water.
Professional Kayaker and ioCrew Member Chris Baer, is a massive fan of our Merino Base Layers and says they’re essentials in his kit. Extreme kayaking has taken him all around the world to some of the most dangerous sections of water, so it’s safe to say he knows what he’s looking for when it comes to performance gear. If he’s someplace cold, he’ll opt for an Altitude Long Sleeve Top and Chaser Leggings and a lightweight Altitude Tank/Tee and Altitude Tights or Underwear when the temperature rises.
And it’s not just Chris who’s a massive fan, our Merino Performance Layers have been worn everywhere from trips down the Colorado River, snorkeling the icy cold ‘Chasm’ sinkhole in South Australia where a layer of ioMerino was worn underneath wet suits for extra warmth and insulation! So if you’re looking for Merino layers to keep you warm and comfortable during all of your rowing, white-water rafting, kayaking, canoeing, snorkeling and diving adventures, then look no further as we offer a great range of Base Layer Tanks and Tees, Long Sleeve Tops, Tights & Leggings, Thermal Underwear, Socks and more. Plus, we also have the layers i.e. Hoodies and Tracksuit Pants to take you to and from your adventures!
