If you haven't tried wearing merino thermal base layers then you are in for a treat. We stock the top quality Devold Expedition Merino Long Johns and Tops in various styles and colours. Take a look at the Merino Thermal Zip Top shown above - it is designed for extreme conditions and proven on several Polar Expeditions. The base layer is 100% merino wool and the outer layer is 90% aquaduct treated merino reinforced with polyamide to improve durability. Moisture will wick away from your body. At 235 g/m2 it is one of the warmest base layers available. The 18.7 micron fibre is wonderfully comfortable against the skin. This style has a zip neck to keep your neck warm even without a scarf or snood, just unzip it to cool off. The arms have thumb holes so your hands can be kept super cosy. We also stock Expedition Merino tops in a "Shirt Style" with a plain round neck and no thumb holes and also a hoody which is often described as the most comfortable garment ever!
Merino wool can be worn continuously on expeditions or on long sailing trips even without being washed as the fabric never smells due to its natural properties.
Once you have invested in a merino base layer why not layer up with a 100% pure wool Thermo Top with zip front and pockets. Being 470 g/m2 it will keep you warm in extreme conditions. This is one of the most vesatile garments - wear it as a mid layer or even a jacket in dry conditions.
Alternatively go the traditional way and treat yourself to a Classic Devold Norwegian Sweater just as the
Polar explorers have for over 100 years!
