Need a quick, easy guide to working out which layer is best for you, where you’re going and what you’re doing? Look no further.
Unlike some companies, we don’t bombard you with 5,000 different styles to choose from, but rather keep our range simple, with different options for different things. Keep in mind, none of this is gospel – if you want to wear an Ultra top when you’re snowboarding, go your hardest. All our layers can be worn for everything. We’re just giving you guidance on what they were designed for, and what we consider them best for.
These are classic ‘second skin’ under layers. You could wear them on their own, but you probably wouldn’t. Ultra light and ultra soft, they can basically be worn underneath anything – from your snow gear to your bike kit. Or even every day for an extra layer of warmth when it’s cold. Because they’re so light with a ‘second skin’ fit, they won’t add any extra bulk, just extra warmth. Click here to shop the Vital Range.
This ‘base layer’ range was originally designed for snow sports and on-mountain. The super soft fabric feels amazing next to you skin, and extra length with drop back hem, means plenty of extra tuck – which makes it great for taller people and bike riding. This range is still classified as ‘contact fit’ so won’t bunch up under other layers, and although it was designed for the snow, more and more people are hiking and running trails in these. If you’d prefer a slightly more forgiving fit, our new Ultra range may be more your thing. Click here to shop the Altitude Range.
Our newest range was developed with Ultra Runners in mind. Extra comfort. Extra durability. The sporty fit is still streamlined, but not ‘contact fit’ like the Vital and Altitude range. So for those of us who may want something a little less clingy, this is the one. This one’s also regular length so won’t have the extra tuck of the Altitude so probably not as good for snow sports and on your bike. Being Merino purists, most of our range is pure Merino, but this one features our first ever Merino blend fabric with 12% Nylon to make it more hard wearing – perfect for adventure racing and what in Australia, we like to call ‘bush bashing’.

This one’s easy: all the amazing properties of our MicroMerino® fabrics, but in an easy, casual fit. So if you want a little extra room to move, this one’s for you. Works for any activity, from high intensity to camping, hiking and beyond. The easy fit means it will sit nicely over another layer, but it’s super soft to wear on its own as well. We refer to this as our Summerino range because the easy fit and lightweight fabric make it the perfect choice for warmer weather. Click here to shop the Keystone range.
Remember, we’re so confident you’ll love what you end up with, we’ll give you your money back if you don’t love it as much as we say you will. And as always, if you need any help choosing the best layer for you, feel free to contact us any time!
