Altitude Range - 'Contact Fit'

The Altitude range is designed to be a tight, but comfortable, fit. If you size up it will give you a little extra room, but it will still hug your body as that’s what this range is designed to do. If you want a looser fit consider the Ultra or Universal range.

Universal and Ultra Range - 'Regular Fit'

These garments are designed true to size, but going up a size in the Ultra will give it a slightly looser fit, whilst remaining sporty. The Universal is already designed as a more casual fit.

Our Altitude range is designed to fit close to your body for maximum performance, so it’s tight but still soft, with plenty of give for extra comfort. The Women’s Altitude Zip Base Layer thermal takes natural temperature regulation to a whole new level. It is the perfect ‘go to’ thermal layer for just about any adventure, especially if you’re expecting to hit a range of temperatures. Zip down when it’s mild, zip up and thumb loops on when the temperature drops.  The high collar also offers an extra level of warmth beyond the Women's Altitude Crew Neck Base Layer version of this top.

Flatlock stitching, raglan sleeves and tag free to eliminate chafe and maximize comfort. The drop back hem and extra body length is designed for tucking into your outer layers. Thumb loops keep your hands warm and stop your sleeves riding up when layering.

This Base Layer Thermal top is the perfect combination of performance, warmth and comfort.

Bright and beautiful

I bought the Altitude Zip in bright rose, as my base layer ahead of some winter trail runs. I’m loving it. Wicks moisture beautifully, washes well, and the colour is gorgeous. Will be buying more.

Enjoying this top; I live in the Snowy Mountains and long sleeves while running are a must for half the year. Nice and warm and light

Fabric Guide

While Merino is an amazing natural fibre, not all Merino fabrics are created equal. At ioMerino, we make our own fabrics, using only the best quality fibres, and to very specific specifications that make the most of the natural benefits of Merino. All of them are 'Merino rich’. No cheap blends passed off as Merino. No cheaper scratchy fibres or synthetic substitutes to save money. No unethical production. And each fabric is made for a specific purpose. So if you see something with a small amount of elastase or nylon added, you can be sure it absolutely needs to be there to enhance the natural stretch and durability. 

It took every bit of our 140 years of experience in the wool industry to perfect our fabrics, but we think you’ll agree the end result was more than worth the effort.

Ethically Made. Ethically Sourced. Perfectly Natural.
