Merino wool base layer for hunting in cold climates
Advanced merino wool base layer for hunting in colder temperatures
Our in-depth base layer study revealed that some merino wool fabrics can have a poor reputation for durability, recovery, and drying time. Thorough testing and research enabled us to develop a hunting merino wool base layer that solves these common problems.
Blended fabric to improve the recovery and drying time of regular merino wool
Merino wool fabrics can be a good choice when used as a base layer, yet can be slow drying with poor resilience. To resolve slow drying time and fabric recovery we incorporate a merino and polyester blend fabric. Giving you a next-to-skin merino blend that improves your comfort and performance when hunting in cold climates.
Stronger and faster drying
Featuring the natural wicking of superfine merino wool on the underside for next to skin comfort. Additionally, you have polyester on the fabric surface to maximise durability. Creating a merino wool base layer that gives you the benefits of both strength and comfort.
The perfect thermal merino top for hunting in cold climates
Developed to be worn as a next to skin base layer for cold climate layering. Featuring 170 g/m2 fabric weight that helps keep you warmer in winter mountain conditions.
Flatlock seams eliminate the possible irritation caused by regular stitching when wearing a backpack. Furthermore, superfine merino wool reduces the course feeling of traditional wool. Together providing greater next to skin comfort whether backpack hunting or stalking with a pack.
Antimicrobial thermal merino hunting base layer
Merino wool is naturally antimicrobial, however, synthetic fibres can promote bacteria build-up leading to odour. To resolve this, the polyester component of this fabric is factory treated with Polygiene® anti-odour technology. Delivering longlasting odour control for the lifetime of the garment.
The silver salt (AgCl, silver chloride) in Polygiene inhibits and guards against the growth of odours from microbes such as bacteria, fungus and mildew.
Regulate your body temperature
Generous collar zipper allows you to control body temperature. Unzip to cool off, zip up to get warm.
YKK® world class performance
Zipper failure can ruin your hunting adventures. Don’t settle for inferior components. You can depend on the durability and reliability of YKK® zippers.

Product looks good but had to rerun it so haven’t used. I’m 190cm tall with chest 112 - fits right in middle of 2XL on size guide. The 2XL was a firm fit and returned it for 3XL. Not cheap and value for money yet to be determined.
Fantastic base layer.I took a little fallow spiker over the weekend,i was covered head to toe in tusk gear.Didnt even see me at 20m.
I rate tusx over kuiu anyday.
