Made from wonderfully soft, thick New Zealand merino wool, the Chakra feels fantastic against the skin. It’s fairly close-fitting with plenty of stretch so traps warmth very efficiently and the cuffs pull up easily to the elbows for ventilation. It doesn’t retain odour, so even after a couple of days’ walking the fabric won’t smell bad. It tolerates different temperatures well, keeping you warm when it’s cold, and wicking away moisture when you sweat. It repels water and dries quickly, too – although not as quickly as some of the synthetics. The only downside is that the fabric is fairly fragile and will last longer if you wash it less – but as odour isn’t an issue this isn’t too much of a problem.
