Beaches are also not necessarily a picturesque stretch of sand. They can comprise of pebbles, stones, rocks or an iron shore. (When limestone dissolves the material left can be quite rough and sharp, therefore it is called an 'iron shore').,
The team spent days underground, therefore they needed base layers that could stand long repetitive wear without the risk of skin infections developing. One way of reducing this risk is to keep the skin dry.
The fabric has a unique knit that minimises contact with the skin, allowing air to circulate, whilst having enough fibres to wick away sweat. In addition the fabric is bacteriostatic and anti-fungal, thanks to anti-microbial silver ions embedded within the fibres of the fabric.
The result is a lightweight compact base layer than can be worn for extended periods beneath a drysuit.Read more
