Base Layers are the foundation of a performance clothing system. Investing money on fancy outer layers will be wasted if paired with an ordinary cotton singlet or tee underneath, not to mention dangerous in wild winter conditions.
Our performance base layers have two main functions; wick moisture away from skin rapidly, and regulate body temperature. Our base layer guide makes it easy to find the
right gear to keep you comfortable and safe on your next hunt.
A phenomenal hot weather base layer that gives unprecedented stealth as well as rapid moisture working wicking and coverage from the sun in the hottest hunting climates.
ECLIPSE RANGE | 15C+
The Eclipse Range are incredible performance summer base layers for the bush, the farm, or the gym. They keep cool when blasting through the hottest parts of the day with rapid wicking and instant cooling Bamboo Charcoal Infused Honeycomb Fabric. Multiple styles and colours are perfect for just about anything in summer months.
CORE RANGE | 5C TO 15C
The Core base layers are designed to regulate your body temperature at the base level through all weather conditions. The quick drying compression weave sits tight to your body ensuring sweat is wicked away rapidly to keep you comfortable in the heat and cold. Additionally, this compression increases muscle recovery and helps reduce fatigue.
CORE+ RANGE | -5C TO 10C
The thermal properties of the CORE+ retain the bodies core heat at the highest level in icy conditions. The quick drying compression weave sits tight to your body, ensuring sweat is wicked away rapidly to keep you comfortable in the cold. Additionally, this compression increases muscle recovery and helps reduce fatigue.
Specially designed base-layers are essential for all hunts, all times of the year. They ensure your safety by regulating your body temperature, keeping you warm when it’s cold, and cool when it’s warm. In addition, our high-performance base layers assist with preventing muscle fatigue, wicking away sweat, and managing odour with their antimicrobial properties.
The Hunters Element range is based on a 3-layer system: base layer, mid-layer and outer layer. Our base-layers (such as the Core or Core+ range) are the foundation of the system, followed by mid-layers (such as our Legacy Jacket, Zenith top, or Whakarapu hood) which block wind and effectively regulate temperature, then outer layer jackets which are designed to withstand extreme elements (such as our Odyssey Jacket V2, Storm Jacket, or Halo Jacket).
All three layers used together ensure you warm up, cool down and stay dry for superior performance in the field. The fabric technology in each layer has been thoughtfully designed to best regulate your temperature, breathe out excess heat and sweat, and keep you protected from the harsh elements.
Each of our base-layer ranges have been designed for different temperatures, and this will form the basis for which range is best suited for you:
Base layers do more than keep you warm in cold weather, they also effectively keep you cool in warm weather, and it’s vital to not overlook the importance of investing in the right base layer for summertime or humid weather hunting.
Our Eclipse range is designed for just this purpose: it’s bamboo charcoal honeycomb fabric effectively wicks away sweat and dumps heat, regulating your temperature. It also provides UPF30+ protection when worn alone.
These leggings are designed as base layers to be worn next to the skin. They are developed to be worn under outer-layer pants which have thoughtfully placed pockets for easy access to the essentials you need.
