Adventurer Holly Budge reviews Brubeck underwear
Here at Nature Shop we always test the products we stock to ensure its right for our customers. This Winter we wanted to go one step further and really put one of our brands Brubeck to the test. That's where our brand ambassador Holly Budge came in. A full time adventurer, mountaineer and expedition leader we couldn't think of anyone better to test this thermal underwear to its limits.
Holly says: "As a full time adventurer, mountaineer and expedition leader in the Himalayas I have tried out many different brands of women's thermal underwear.
I recently spent a week ice climbing in Cogne, Italy, living in a camper van for the whole trip and literally did not take off my Brubeck extreme merino wool leggings and active wool long sleeve top, plus socks. I wanted to really put this gear through its paces before deciding whether to use it on big Himalayan mountain expeditions.

I found this thermal underwear to be multi-functional, from waking up in freezing morning temperatures in my sleeping bag to going straight out into the mountains. It put a new spin on the term ‘seamless’! Talking of which, the seamless designs Brubeck have pioneered are not only impressive due to the warmth they provided me and the fast drying times, especially in times of intense physical exertion but also impressive in the quality workmanship. A lot of thought and detail has gone into the design of these garments and this shows in the functionality.

I was expecting my base layers to not be odour free by the end of the week but I am pleased to report that they did not smell at all, even my socks!

I would highly recommend Brubeck and will be using their base layers on my upcoming expeditions without a doubt!"

Brubeck is a highly versatile range of thermal underwear and baselayers designed for everyday wear, skiing, hiking, cycling, mountaineering and more! Made with a seamless design these layers are extremely comfortable and the merino wool content ensures your body is kept at the perfect temperature, dry and odour free. This range comes at a great price point with all items under £60.
