In developing the Keepdry 500 base layer, we listened to what you had to say and watched players out on the pitch. We've made it more technical, more breathable and even more effective in wicking away perspiration quickly.
We've also rethought its shape, while maintaining its slim-fit design for effective perspiration wicking.
in creating the Keepdry 500, we used a fabric that is more effective in wicking away perspiration, which absorbs moisture more quickly and transfers it to the outside of the garment so you can stay dry and warm when you're playing.
In line with a study we carried out ahead of the design phase, we have used an open weave for warmer parts of the body.
This slim-fitting base layer acts as a second skin, while the Raglan-style sleeves offer even more freedom of movement.
The use of Seamless technology means less stitching, a common cause of chafing.
The elbow areas have been reinforced with 3D-knitting to reduce impact when hitting the ground, after a tackle for example.
Perspiration wicking and quick-dry fabric keep your body warm.
The Keepdry 500 features thumb holes that help ensure it stays in place and offers extra protection against the cold.
Our range of base layers was tested in a climate chamber with a group of 30 sports users in January 2020. This device ensures tests are conducted in the same climate conditions (temperature, wind, etc).
Following a specific protocol and in testing the ability of different base layers to keep your skin dry, retain body heat and prevent shivering, our certification team confirmed the following ranking.
