Features to Note:

In-use Test:

The Kathmandu Altica Thermaplus is a V-necked, close fitting thermal/base layer that I've worn now on several long days' winter walking trips in temperatures down to about -2 degrees C.

I thought the fit was true to size and, once I'd become accustomed to the close fit cut, I found the Altica to be extremely comfortable.

The Altica did an excellent job in providing welcome, additional warmth in some really quite cold and snowy conditions. However, as I 'run hot' during higher energy periods, I also need a base layer that provides good breathability and wicking - the Altica certainly provided both.

Even better, I've also been able to wear the Altica for several days as the odour retention was almost non-existent.

So far the Altica has been very easy to care for - it washes and dries very well.

Buying Advice:

The Kathmandu Altica Thermaplus V-neck top is an excellent option when you need some additional warmth for winter walking.

• Tena koe, in 2000 i bought a similar product from the dunedin Kathmandu store and was so pleased with it i purchased 5 more, I believe at that stage the thermals were being called Bipolar or some such name. These were yellow in colour and had ample room for the large stomached, long trunked and deep chested kiwi bloke who enjoys his hunting in the far south. my last one has inevitably given up the ghost after an extremely hard and long life out upon the hills up to 3 weeks at a time on, and mayhap 35 - 40 day hunts a year. Sadly i cannot find a replacement as the currrent 2xl's cannot contain my wide shoulders, long trunk and ample stomach. could i possibly get some tailor made to fit? or purchase any left over stock from 2000?
