Description

Thermoregulatory, anti-microbial, UV protective, and exquisitely soft, Kepler Velo base layer keeps you comfortable and fresh on longer trips across a range of temperatures with a slightly thicker fabric keeps you protected on chillier days.

A high collar protects your neck from draughts or the sun whilst short sleeves and a half-zip add ventilation. Drop tail and gripper hem elastic, stop the base layer from riding up.

Thoughtfully functional, a zipped pocket on the rear is sized to fit your energy bars and gels.

Reflective tape woven into the zips helps you stay visible and safe.

MERINO

The Kepler range uses beautiful, superfine merino for a luxuriously comfortable next-to-skin feel.

With thermoregulatory and anti-microbial properties, merino wool is more than a match for day-in, day-out use across the temperatures in changeable mountain conditions, help you to stay fresh, comfortable, and protected no matter what the weather decides.

We use 100% natural New Zealand merino from non-mulesing farms.

Care & Environmental Advice

Product Care Information

The better you look after this merino garment, the better it will look after you. Give your Kepler a long, happy life with these tips: Hand wash your merino in lukewarm water, or gentle machine wash. Darn any holes as soon as possible so they don’t grow. Avoid snagging, vigorous machine washing, putting your finger through the fabric, and hungry moths.
