Point6 Launches The World's Best Baselayers

Point6 Launches The World's Best Baselayers

Superior materials meet thoughtful design.

Point 6, manufacturers of best socks for you and the planet, have launched a baselayer line that sets a new standard for comfort and versatility. Skiers, snowboarders, hunters and hikers - it's time to step up your baselayer game.

Effective layering for any outdoor activity follows the same set of rules, right?

  • the base layer keeps you dry
  • the mid layer keeps you warm
  • the outer layer fends off the elements


  • Point6 baselayers use 100% Extra Fine 18.5 Micron New Zealand Merino Wool, (“Micron” is a measurement of the thickness of an individual fiber. 18.5 is the finest used by any base layer manufacturer). Nothing will keep you as dry in such a wide range of temperatures. Merino wool’s antimicrobial and odor resistant properties are superior to any synthetic or wool blend. Everyone on the hut trip will thank you.


  • Point6 uses Compact Spun merino wool yarn in all our socks and baselayers - we're the only company to do so. Compact Spinning produces a thinner thread that still has the soft hand merino wool is known for. It also eliminates pilling and significantly increases product durability.


  • Baselayer tops feature a shoulder panel to eliminate top seams. Noticeably more comfortable, especially with a pack.


  • Our baselayers use an Interlock knit for UPF 50+ and flatlock seams prevent chafing and rubbing.


  • Men’s bottoms have a covered elastic waistband and a fly. Women’s bottoms have a wide, self fabric covered elastic waistband for comfort.


The line includes Men's and Women's crew tops and 1/4 zipfront tops to match the bottoms.

Prices are $100 for the bottoms and crew neck tops, $100 for the 1/4 zips.

All Point6's merino wool is treated with Plasma Clean during the wash process. The "superwash" method used by our competitors uses chlorine, producing toxic by-products. Our process is GOTS, IVN, OEKO-TEX®​ and bluesign-approved. It produces no pollutants.

Available right now at Point6.com and through select retailers.
