Sweat doesn’t care what you look like in the mirror. If it has to dump the contents of a saltcellar across your chest to keep your core temperature stable then it will. It’s your body’s way of congratulating you for pushing past the point most people stop. It says you’re ok with your heart beating in your temples, with spit and your last meal clinging to your lips, panting happily like a dog and smelling like one, looking deranged but feeling invincible. The Salt Camo baselayer is designed to make you look vaguely acceptable despite your best efforts not to.

We shot the Salt Camo Baselayer on ultra runner, ocean rower and explorer Alex Bellini, who 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.

See our size guide for more advice on sizing.

And don’t worry if you order something and it doesn’t fit – we have a free, no-hassle 30 day return and exchange period.

Our approach to recreating salt and sweat

Push your body hard enough and it leaves salt waves like tidal marks on a beach. So we’ve used three layers to recreate salt and sweat. The base print is a mid grey to cover up darker stains. On top of that are two layers of simulated sweat and salt marks, one stone grey, the other an off white. Both are printed in the same marbled spider web pattern you find from prolonged use of clothes.

High performance for high intensity situations

The Salt 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 Salt 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 and 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.
