Bergan's base layers have been used on Polar expeditions for over a century. This pioneering spirit is still with the brand today, as they aim to make the very best equipment for adventurers. Their underwear collection is 100% pure Merino wool and aims to achieve an optimum balance between comfort and function.
Warm, dry, soft, 100% natural and highly versatile with specific fit for men and women. Wool fibres provide an excellent thermal balance, meaning you get great insulation in the cold and a cooling effect when temps are warm. Merino wool retains its warmth when wet and is naturally odour resistant.
Merino wool benefits at a glance:
- Absorbs more than 30% of its own weight in moisture, while still insulating effectively
- Eliminates odours and reduces the need for washing
- Feels soft and comfortable on the skin without itching
- Is fire-proof and does not melt at high temperatures
- Protects against UVA and UVB rays
- Can be washed in a machine
- Resists wear and tear, and is biodegradable
- Originates from free-range sheep on sustainable and socially responsible farms
Bergan's choose their suppliers carefully to ensure high quality, as well as traceability and sustainability of the farms. Social and economic welfare for workers, farmers and communities is important to them and they guarantee that their wool is mulesing free.
