Push yourself to the limit on your favourite summer trail run with the Men’s Vapour Long Sleeve Zip Neck T-Shirt.


As part of the Vapour Light range, this baselayer is designed to work in complete coordination with the rest of the collection allowing for maximum ventilation and performance. A three component construction allows for great freedom of movement and breathability – stretch panels over the shoulder create an unrestricted fit, a new open knit structure allows for a highly lightweight and efficient main body while underarm mesh allows for great breathability in the high perspiration areas.

  • Stay safe in the sun – this top is long sleeved and has a UPF of 30+ (excluding mesh) for added sun protection

I have been having this baselayer for 2 (or 3) years now and it has been great! The fit is very flattering and cool looking design immediately makes you a pro mountaineer. Very light on the body but it is a bit warm so actually quite good in winters and also superb for a cold day climbing (about 10-15C on a sunny October afternoon). For sunny Alpine/Scottish winter routes it also worked well to be the only layer. It will get a bit too hot in full summer Alpine sun though but still manageable. The zip goes deep so you can expose all of your chest to cool down. The longer torso makes it a good choice for winter to tuck in.

Actual weight is about 150g for Small. The Argentium fabric seem to not to smell  bad after few days of climbing. Underarm mesh works well. It does start to ball up in a few places now (possibly due to climbing) but doesn’t look too shabby.
