Sure you could buy one of our best-selling Altitude base layers in a regular colour like black or grey, but if you’re looking to add a little extra fun to your next adventure, this one’s for you. But don’t let the name fool you, this is one seriously good thermal base layer.

The Mongrel is mostly made from our flagship Enigma MicroMerino® – 96% superfine Australian Merino and 4% Elastane for an easy four way stretch. There’s also a few different premium Merino fabric panels thrown in, but rest assured they’re all still super soft and comfortable. The first Mongrel sold out in record time, and we generally make them in fairly limited quantities, so if you’re keen, it’s best to get in sooner rather than later.

Behind its colourful exterior, the Mongrel delivers the soft-touch comfort you’ve come to expect from our Altitude range, as well as natural breathability, temperature regulation, moisture wicking and odour-resistance. Because looks aren’t everything, right?
