The Brynje Arctic Zip Polo is a unique insulating base-layer designed for 4-season use. The garment consists of two important layers: a fine merino wool outer, and an innovative polypropylene mesh lining. Devised by a team with years of winter expedition experience between them, this system of synthetic mesh underneath a soft wool layer provides a stronger garment than standard woollen clothing, with better moisture-wicking ability.
While it may sound like an odd combination, this mesh-lined system has been tested and proven over decades' of expeditions in some of the harshest environments. In fact, Brynje clothing was worn by the adventurers Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay, on their legendary expedition to scale Mount Everest in 1953. The merino wool outer provides an extremely soft, warm and comfortable feel, while the mesh inner helps to trap pockets of air giving superb
The Zip Polo features a full-length turtleneck which can be rolled up or down depending on the conditions, along with a quarter-length zip. The long sleeves feature thumb-holes for extra comfort and warmth.
This garment has been designed for year-round use in cold conditions, including extended winter expeditions. The Arctic Zip Polo range of clothing has become Brynje's best seller, thanks to the enhanced functionality of wool matched with synthetic mesh. The Zip Polo is exclusive to Woodlore within the UK.
