Pure merino wool makes the Kepler Short Sleeve an ideal base layer for hiking a GR route on the continent, biking through Scotland or trail running on cool mornings.
The 160gsm Kepler base layer performs over a vast range of conditions. Naturally breathable, wicking and fast drying, merino wool keeps you comfortable in both hot and cold weather, controlling your temperature throughout the day.
We’ve used pure merino wool from non-mulesed sources and ultrafine fibres (17.2 microns). As well as being soft against the skin, these ultrafine fibres have an excellent warmth-to-weight ratio.
Merino wool is also naturally odour-resistant, so you can wear it day after day without stinking your mates out of the tent. For comfort under layers and rucksack straps, the Kepler has articulated sleeves with low-profile flat lock seams.
Fabric: 100% merino, 160 gsm, 17.2 microns
Seams: Flatlock stitching
S: 140g; M: 160g; L: 170g; XL:175g; XXL: 195g
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.

We only use merino from certified non-mulesed sources. Mulesing is a practice some farms use to guard against parasitic fly strike. We believe this practice is cruel and unnecessary and something that can be easily prevented by regular shearing.
Merino wool is 100% natural, biodegradable and renewable (sheep produce new fleece and sheep produce new sheep... usually in spring... they gambol... you know all this...)
