Walking Tops

T- Shirts

These are made using similar fabrics to wicking base layers. They are made into a looser fit so they feel cooler and have an increased spf for extra protection from the sun.

Cotton T shirts will soak up your perspiration and hold it in the fibres next to your skin. This means you are always damp and when you stop for a rest your skin feels cold and clammy. Wicking fabrics pull perspiration away from your skin and channel it away from your body to evaporate quickly from the fibres on the outside of the shirt. This helps you regulate your temperature better and stay drier in hot conditions.

Tech Tops (Windproof)

These are one of the most practical and versatile bits of outdoor clothing available. They take up no space or weight and can be used as part of a soft shell system.

Every time you use your waterproof jacket you are shortening its life, regardless of whether it is raining or not. And when it is not raining why do so many people wear waterproofs? I don’t know!! They would be much more comfortable in a windproof top which is lighter and more breathable. And because they have no coating or membrane there is nothing to damage and wear out so you can leave them scrunched up to the size of an apple in the bottom of your pack. They stop the wind and light showers and when worn over a fleece and base layer they make a soft shell system that is versatile and lightweight.
