Vollebak’s Base Layer Has Over 4KM Of Antimicrobial Copper Woven Into It

Vollebak is a brand that prides itself on innovating for innovation’s sake, over-engineering its products to such an extent that they challenge the very notion of what technical apparel can be. And the thing is — just when you think that you’ve seen it all, the British-based outfit often has something else up its sleeve. In this case, it’s copper.

For its latest drop, Vollebak has taken what it learned from making its award-winning Full Metal Jacket and crafted a form-fitting base layer with over 4km of copper running through its threads. As such, the resulting garment makes for quite the performance piece, offering excellent breathability, thermoregulation, and moisture-wicking — all while being naturally disease-resistant thanks to the metal’s biostatic properties. And while you might think that infusing a shirt with copper would make it pretty unforgiving to wear, the thin strands and added elastane give it superior four-way stretch. Top it off with a high integrated collar, three welded vents, and a pair of hidden zipper pockets at the waist, and it’s easy to see why Vollebak isn’t just leading the clothing industry; it’s revolutionizing it. You can buy the Copper Baselayer now for $195.

Purchase: $195
