  Weight: 270 gm

+Lightwave™ Merino
A bi-component thermal fabric combining merino and polyester yarns. Superfine 19.5 micron merino wicks sweat away from your skin while the polyester provides a durable, non-pill outer. Lightweight and machine washable.
  • Composition: 46% merino; 54% polyester.
  • Weight: 150 gsm.
+Man vs Wild
  • Merino is unrivalled for comfort as a body layer.
  • Its natural fibres help fend off the big stink on multi-day epics.
  • Merino absorbs more moisture than synthetic fibres, mopping up excess sweat rather than letting it settle on your skin.
  • However high-aerobic activities like cycling will often overload ordinary merino. Lightwave's polyester component repels moisture to reduce total saturation of the fabric - so it dries faster to help keep your cool. Ideal for going hard 'n' fast, and for wearing under your rain jacket.
+Hot 'n' Cold
Lightwave™ Merino regulates your temperature through a wide range of conditions. Delivering comfort in all but the hottest climes, as well as a thermal layer under a WindFoil™, microFoil™ or HydroFoil™ shell in winter.
+UPF 50
UPF 50+ rating extends your no-burn time by 50 times over bare skin. Designs with a stand-up collar and long sleeves maximise protection from the sun's UV rays. Yank 'em up if it gets too stifling.

+WhaleTail™
Ground Effect tops are cut with extra length in the back... and in the sleeves too. So when you stretch out in search of the perfect downhill position, neither your shirttail or sleeves will ride-up to expose your back or wrists to the elements.

+More than Kiwi Made
Ground Effect clothing is crafted right here in Aotearoa | New Zealand. Has been ever since we started back in 1994. Manufacturing locally works for us. We operate a quick-response system - holding minimal stock of any one item, but churning out a few more quick-smart when the pile gets low. The upshot is that we are seldom caught with our shelves empty, so orders get despatched the same day you place them.

    New Robin Hood...Disappointing

    I've been a fan of the Robin Hood for nearly 20 years and have two of them. This latest version though is disappointing. There is no zipper to adjust it, and the hood is not snug. I've only worn it once, and specifically not in really cold weather and could feel the air moving around my skull. I will try it again soon, but I'm already thinking about how to modify it.
