Blood Camo Baselayer. Perfect for hardcore athletes. Or psychopaths.
Designed for the most psycho extreme sports athletes, the Blood Camo baselayer takes a utilitarian approach to adventure clothing, accepting that razor sharp ice axes, brambles, thorns, crampons and rocks are part of the fun. Our blood camouflage pattern disguises fresh and dried blood like it’s just not there. Lightweight, breathable, and insanely stretchy, it also has the performance capabilities to help you cope in environments where a bit of blood loss is simply a sign of commitment.
Choose your size Size
No-one ever shredded skin watching TV. That’s what adventure and endurance sports are for. Watching your toenails drop off, getting to know the taste of your own blood, the sound of the breath being smashed out of you, the surgical precision of tarmac removing your skin, and the numbed tug of stitches pulling your flesh back together. Whether you’re racing downhill, up a rock face, or through trails, the Blood Camo Baselayer says you know where your priorities lie, and that the aim of life is not to arrive at the end with the fewest scars.

We use Vollebak athletes in all of our shots. Ultra runner, ocean rower and explorer Alex Bellini is 6ft 2 / 188cm and wears size medium. He has a very lean physique and likes his clothes close fitting. With so much elasticity, the baselayer can be worn tight to your skin, or large and loose. So if you like your baselayers a bit baggy we recommend choosing a size up.
Our approach to creating Blood Camo
Blood drips and trickles from your body. It seeps, spatters and smears into your clothes. Its edges leak. It pours out bright and shiny then dries matt and dark. Disguising it requires layering up patterns and colour intensity to create the perception of depth, and replicate its drying stages. We’ve combined a highly saturated red base for fresh blood with maroon pools and spatters with a paler seeping surround for dried on stains.
High performance for high intensity situations
The Blood Camo Baselayer is made from a high performance fabric that’s soft, breathable and highly elastic. With 22% elastane, the baselayer gives you complete freedom of movement with 4 way stretch. We’ve combined this with elastic stitching that can stretch and tolerate extreme movements. Called ‘active stitch’ it's not only tougher than standard stitching, but also has the ability to stretch with the fabric when it’s being pulled around by you or nature.
Seamless side panelling
Two seamless side panels – running from the bottom hem, up the side of the body, then down the inside of the sleeve to the cuff – give you complete freedom of movement, with no seams to prevent the fabric stretching as you move your arms and upper body.
Lock-down waterproof zip
The baselayer has a lock-down zip, which means you can secure it in place at any point. Once locked in place, he zip pull won’t bounce and the zip won’t come undone, however much you move around. It stays exactly where you left it. The zip has a rubberised, waterproof surround, and a soft zip guard at the neck.
The Blood Salt & Dirt Camo system
The Blood Camo Baselayer is part of our range of extreme camo for extreme sports. Whether you’re racing downhill, up a rock face, or through trails, you always end up covered in several pints of sweat, random dirt, and the occasional bit of blood. Our Blood, Salt & Dirt Camo t shirts and baselayers can be worn together to make cuts and blood stains, sweat and salt waves, mud and dirt difficult to detect, and washing optional.Read more
