Whether you’re hiking, climbing, camping, skiing, or traveling the world, these Peak to Plateau base layers are up for the challenge. Each is made from a blend of yak wool and Tencel, a high-performing fiber from the eucalyptus tree. Along with being naturally antibacterial and remarkably breathable, yak wool is warmer than merino and insulates better when wet. It provides UV protection, resists pesky static cling, and keeps you cool when it’s hot out, too. Add eco-friendly Tencel for durability and moisture management, and you’ve got a base layer that won't back down. Named for a high-altitude Tibetan lake, the Namtso short-sleeve tee is great for year-round wear. Looking for a long-sleeve option? Pick the Nomad crew or the Kailash quarter zip. All three allow total freedom of movement with no riding up or chafing.
Note: At checkout, choose the Namtso short-sleeve tee (base price), the Nomad long-sleeve crew (+ $15), or the Kailash long-sleeve quarter zip (+ $22), all available in unisex XS–XL.
After months of living and working with the local yak herders and nomads of the Himalayas and Tibetan Plateau, Stefan Warnaar set out to make better outdoor products—ones that would encourage adventure and stand up to the world’s most beautiful, extreme environments. Soon, Peak to Plateau was born, and ever since has been producing performance garments using yak fiber. Dedicated to environmental and social sustainability, the company purchases ethically sourced yak fiber from cooperatives on the Tibetan Plateau to ensure herders receive the fair income they rely on. The rest is done in house: the fiber spun into a superfine yarn, knit into a unique fabric, and crafted into the final product.
