Description

Kepler boxer shorts let you start your layering system the right way.

Cut for comfort, the high waistline stays away from where your other garments may sit in your layering system, a wide waistband prevents rubbing and keep the boxers from riding down.

The low-profile, slim-fit cut and exquisitely soft ultrafine merino fabric will make these suitable for active use.

MERINO

The Kepler range uses beautiful, ultrafine merino for a luxuriously comfortable next-to-skin feel.

With thermoregulatory and anti-microbial properties, merino wool is more than a match for day-in, day-out use across the temperatures in changeable mountain conditions, help you to stay fresh, comfortable, and protected no matter what the weather decides.

We use 100% natural merino from non-mulesing farms.

Care & Environmental Advice

Product Care Information

The better you look after this merino garment, the better it will look after you. Give your Kepler a long, happy life with these tips: Hand wash your merino in lukewarm water, or gentle machine wash. Darn any holes as soon as possible so they don’t grow. Avoid snagging, vigorous machine washing, putting your finger through the fabric, and hungry moths.

Fit Guide
Tight Slim Regular Relaxed
Close fitting designed to conform to your body shape. Slim and slightly contoured but not form fitting. A comfortable fit that's not too tight, nor too loose. A looser fit with a bit more space but not too baggy.

Kepler Merino Review in Velome

The top is really lightweight, soft and totally breathable which is ideal for a day's riding as I felt both warm and "airy"|my Alpkit Merino wool layer whist riding was really comfortable|Great quality, fit and features

Wild Running Top Men's Winter Running Gear

Merino wool base layers are normally the warmest, and as long as they are ethically produced you can feel happy wearing a natural fibre. I wear either my Alpkit Kepler (RRP £29) or my Howies short-sleeve base layer (RRP £45) pretty much all the time. They look great as well as performing brilliantly in all but the warmest weather. Synthetic base layers dry faster than Merino, but Merino retains its warmth even when wet

Women Climb Kepler Merino Top Review

I love the design of this women specific base layer top. It looks as good on its own after a hard day of climbing as it does at the crag under all your layers. The people at Alpkit have clearly thought about every aspect of this garment and tested it out to create a beautifully designed and functional garment that is perfectly fit for purpose
