Alchemists sought to perfect elements from the natural world, transforming the ordinary into extraordinary. Blending technology and evolution, our Alchemy base layers redefine the formula of performance and comfort.
Multi-climate. Multi-mission. Resilient. Alchemy base layers deliver the foundation for success across diverse environments, combining the next-to-skin performance characteristics of merino wool with the stability, durability, and breathability of technical synthetic fibers.
Our Alchemy Half-Zip excels as a temperate weather base layer, and can double as a light mid-layer in your layering system. The mid-height collar provides sun coverage and warmth when needed, while a deep zipper provides tailorable venting for warmer conditions.
A highly breathable grid structure moves moisture and provides next-to-skin softness.
Odor resistant merino wool provides warmth even when wet.
Polyester is inherently hydrophobic, promoting quick dry times.
Polartec® Power Wool™ suspends a matrix of fine merino wool in a resilient synthetic base. Highly-absorbent and odor-fighting wool pulls moisture vapor away from your skin, transferring it to the outer synthetic layer where it expands and evaporates faster. This mechanical wicking action allows Polartec® Power Wool™ to keep moisture in motion at all times.
