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 Crew Neck Base Layer is the ‘go to’ thermal layer for just about any adventure and our all-time best seller. It’s the perfect thermal layer for core warmth when you’re layering up, yet versatile enough to be worn on its own in milder conditions.

Tag-free, flatlock stitching and raglan sleeves help eliminate chafe and maximise 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 top is the perfect combination of performance, warmth and comfort.

(For a more relaxed fit try our Ultra or Universal tops.)

Ultra Trail Australia mandatory gear approved thermals.

Designed to be worn as a body tight ‘contact fit’ layer. 

Drop back hem and extra length in body. New and improved slightly shorter length.

Best base layer I’ve found!

I absolutely love my altitude crew for staying warm during early morning chilly winter trail runs or bike commutes to work. They wear really well over time as well, my first one is two years old and still looks like the new one I have just purchased.

Warm and Light

bought the Altitude crew and zip to layer but found that it did not work. The close to body fit made the sleeves quite snug around my upper arms, layering was not comfortable. Otherwise, absolutely lovely, very flattering if you feel comfortable in the contoured fit. Super light and super warm at the same time. Wore the crew running with just a light cheap down jacket in 22 F weather - warm enough!

Quality under-layer.

Very close fitting as described - Think body hugging! I am a size 16 and purchased an XL. If I wanted it as an outer layer, I would have gone for an XXL. Good quality and feel, and one of the few tops I can find with a Raglan Sleeve - Please give me more with Raglan sleeves - so much more comfortable on the move! Also, great customer service.

great underlayer.

This is my first ever thumbhole shirt/jacket/whatever item and I was very excited to try it. It ends up not being great in this shirt as it will end up being an underlayer more than something i wear as a primary shirt. I forgot how close-fitting the altitude line is and should have ordered a size larger. This fits, but it fits CLOSE! that said, it stays in place well and feels good on. A bit thinner/cooler than I expected so i'll actually even get some summer wear out of it I think, if I can stand showing off everything I've got to the world. The thumb holes will make it easier to slide layers overtop without loosing my sleeves.

Cycling base layer

Overall happy with the fit and feel of my Altitude Crew. For cycling, arms are a bit long and thumb hole superfluous. Felt a bit tight first up, but has relaxed with a couple of washes. Sizing is generous. I'm usually an XXL, but XL is fine with this item. Have only used it in a Sydney winter, so no real test of it's warmth, but has been fine as a base layer on the bike so far.

Best top for outdoor exercise

Love this top for running and cycling in the cold. It regulates temperature really well and isn’t itchy like some wool is. The shape is well fitted and it’s great for layering

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.
