Perfect for layering or on its own, designed with both comfort and functionality in mind, the Rendezvous Ridge Long Sleeve is your year-round go to base layer. It is equally useful as your sole long sleeve on a backpacking trip in the mountains, to being your quick dry base layer on cold winter expeditions. The odor resistance is helpful for travel and extended trips - or multiple after work skis between washes!
Our Sterling™ fabric contains antimicrobial silver fibers, so you can wear it multiple times between washes without building up odor. This luxurious fabric is also quick drying and cottony soft to the touch, so it can be worn all day for outdoor fitness, recreation and comfort! UPF 50+ for sun protection!
We offer fit options! Wild Iris for a more straight/square frame shape. Azalea for a curvier shape. Refer to Your Alpine Fit for more info.

Moving to Alaska from New Mexico I didn’t have any base layers. Once I got this wonderful shirt I basically wore it all winter long. It’s lightweight warm and flattering. The fact that I don’t have to wash it frequently means less water and energy used and better for the environment. This top also makes a wonderful gift!
I love the color, material, fit of this shirt! Another new favorite!
Love this multifunctional shirt! It fits so well and I love the color that I end up wearing all day before exercising too. I thought I was a curvy fit but I actually fit better in the Wild Iris, straight fit. It was helpful to try on the different styles.
We just spent a week on a river in the Brooks Range, during which time I wore a single pair of the base layer pants and a single long sleeve base layer top the entire time -- under a drysuit during the day, while hanging around in camp, and even while sleeping. I'll admit this made me nervous since I usually bring a change of clothes for sleeping, but I wanted to cut down on weight and really test these out. And in the end these layers worked out great! I loved how quickly the fabric dries out: I can get sweaty while paddling, but whenever we took a break on shore I opened up the zips on my drysuit and let everything air out, and by the time we were done my base layer was dry again. They are also super comfortable, with a good fit, stretchy fabric, and don't feel itchy when wet (like wool can). And the best thing: after a week on the water I didn't smell terrible! (see photo for the final sniff test)
Just finished a week long pack rafting trip where this was the only shirt I brought. I already love it for the awesome cut and soft fabric with cool art on the sleeves, but my mind is now blown. After 7 days in the backcountry under a dry suit, in the tent, and even on the plane ride that turned my poor stomach inside out, this shirt held almost no odor. I would easily have gone out for a beer in it after the trip! I am replacing all of my base layers with these.
I took this shirt on a 10 day road trip through Nevada and Utah. Brought along a few other shirts and pretty much only wore this one. The fit and construction are great, and the shirt is comfortable as a base layer in cold weather or as a quick dry top on a hot hike. Checks all the practical boxes and you'll look cute too!
LOVE LOVE LOVE this top! It is super flattering, very comfortable and never stinks. Like never. Trust me, I've tried. I wear this top skiing, biking, hiking and sailing and rarely wash it- and no smell! I also get compliments on it everywhere I go because it looks so good. I've had this about 1.5 years and it still looks new! For sizing purposes, I am 5'3" and 125 pounds with an athletic build and I have a small in the Azaelea Fit.
This shirt is amazing-- super soft fabric, flattering cut, and the anti-stink silver works like magic on multi-day backcountry trips! I love the longer torso on the Rendezvous Ridge; it doesn't ride up under a backpack strap like most layers do. I used to have a ton of different long-sleeve shirts that I would pick through depending on the activity, season, etc. but the Rendezvous Ridge replaced them ALL. Highly recommend!
This is my favorite base layer- breathable, durable, and a flattering fit. Also, it doesn’t hold odors with the Sterling silver fabric so I can wear it day after day for my outdoor activities before needing to wash it.
I love love love this shirt. I've had mine for about 1.5 years and use it for running, xc skiing, bc skiing, hiking and boating. It is flattering and has held up great. And is never stinky. My husband has the men' version and loves his too!
