Nice things to cover your upper body. Tops!! Lots more tops can be found in the Base Layer section. These thermals and base layers are the most wicking of our shirts, and most of them are technical in fit and design, but there are some more casual t-shirts there as well.
The technical values of most tops lie in the materials used in construction.The tops in this section are generally intended for casual or fashion use and are cotton. Cotton provides comfort for relaxing in warm weather with the fit and looks to suit any occassion. It is ideal for evening bouldering sessions and summer cragging. We stock many comfy options that would be at home enjoying the sunshine on Gower coastal paths or around the barbecque.
Cotton is not great for use in wet environments... the saying 'Cotton Kills' might sound like an old cliché but it can be true! Cotton is very cold when saturated with water and will draw heat from your body at a fast rate. If you are out in the mountains or hills this could easily translate to hypothermia. For tops more suited to this use try the Base Layers section.
Man-made fibres allow greater wicking than cotton and are therefore better suited to active use. They also dry quicker, weigh very little, pack down well, keep the wind out and are often wrinkle resistant. They are slightly less comfortable than cotton, but in many cases the pros outway the cons so we have a number of options.Again most of these tops can be found in our Base Layer section.
