Mons Royale is known for offering some of the best and most durable merino base layers out there. The Olympus 3.0 midweight top and leggings are the warmest base layer combo within the Mons Royale range. Warmth guaranteed.

For the fabric, Mons Royale has used merino wool. This has been blended with 3% elastane, allowing the Olympus to keep its shape and last longer. The 100% sustainable merino wool is nature’s own temperature regulation system. It’s the most comfortable fabric you can find, and comfort is key when it comes to base layers.

“The slim fit of the Olympus base layer sits right next to your skin, exactly where you want it to be”

Merino wool is also incredibly warm, so the mid-weight Olympus 3.0 will do a great job keeping you and your muscles warm, making it easier to move around as a result. The slightly thicker fabric doesn’t sacrifice much in terms of the base layer’s breathability either, thanks to the merino wool’s superb temperature regulating abilities. You’ll also find its anti-odour properties come in handy, especially when you’ve exposed it to some more strenuous mountain activities.

The slim fit of the Olympus base layer sits right next to your skin, exactly where you want it to be. For the fabric to do its job it needs to be in direct contact with your skin, meaning you really want a snug fit.

Mons Royale’s Olympus 3.0 base layer is a low profiled slim fitted base layer, thick enough to keep you warm but slim enough to fit perfectly underneath your other layers without making you feel like you’ve been wrapped in a sausage casing. Whether you’re looking for a base layer to keep you dry on your backcountry bender or one to keep you warm through those frosty Nordic storms, this kit works equally well in both scenarios.

The model in the photo is 5’8” (173cm) tall and wearing size M.
