Base layers are an essential part of outdoor enthusiasts’ kit, working as part of a layering system to wick moisture away from the body and keep you dry as you tackle those hills.
With the arrival of summer, outdoors brand SmartWool has introduced its intimates range, offering high performance for extreme activities.
The company, which uses merino wool in its clothing, said the range is a collection of microweight high performance next-to-skin designs which, it said are ‘perfect for that first layer, where comfort and fit are essential requirements to looking good, working harder and keeping cool’.
The women’s models come in thong, bikini and hiphugger styles, with tops in cami, tank or tee designs.
SmartWool said: “They’re guaranteed to give lasting comfort, designed and cut to fit as closely to the skin as possible with the inherent properties of merino wool providing ultimate in breathability.
“The addition of Pointelle adds a luxurious, feminine finish to the designs as well as added comfort benefits where a build-up of heat or friction would impair overall enjoyment and performance.”
Prices start at £17.99 for the thong, with bikini available at £19.99 and hiphugger at £21.99. The cami is £29.99, the tank £39.99 and tee £44.99.
