When it's cold enough for icicles to form on your beard, but the promise of first tracks is too strong, the Basis Midweight Merino Tight delivers elevated performance and thermoregulating properties to keep you warm and dry throughout. The secret to its comfort and warmth is our proprietary PeakWool™ fabric, a powerful blend of soft yet resilient Tencel, nylon and elastane fibers with the warmth and wicking of 56% merino wool to deliver strength, comfort and range of motion.
PeakWool™ is a midweight fabric constructed with Merino Wool, Tencel, Recycled Nylon and Spandex. The natural properties of Merino regulate body temperature, keep odors at bay and manage moisture to keep you dry. The addition of synthetic fibers increases softness, adds strength and elevates its wicking properties. PeakWool™ excels in cold temps by keeping your core warm and dry, while enabling heat transfer when the tempo picks up.
