Svala 100% Dry Stretch Mesh Long Johns, black
Undoubtedly indecent looking, mesh underwear is just about the best thing you can put next to your skin. Mesh clothing also works during hot weather and high activity levels, as it breathes so well you can literally blow through it.
Mesh clothing works well in just about all temperatures. They keep the next layer off the skin and create air pockets, which insulate you from the cold. The material soaks only 0.1% of its weight in moisture, so despite mesh being effective even when wet, the Svala mesh does one better and transfers moisture.
The mesh feels entirely bearable against the skin and these long johns have a fairly high waist to prevent hanging.
Material and care
Made of 100 % polypropylene with a silver-ionized anti-bacterial treatment. Weighs next to nothing. Wash at 60 degrees Celsius.
Listed are the easy sizes given by the manufacturer, just pick the size you usually wear. These stretch like the German Wehrmacht in Eastern Front, so it's not too precise. The length is quite generous even for tall people, but do note that a tighter fit reduces length.
