Layer Up with Kari Traa

Over the last few years, Norway’s Kari Traa has grown into a major brand for active women. And it’s now breaking big in North America. A strong color palette, an unmistakable design and the highest technical quality is found in every item, from underwear to outerwear. Even today, fond childhood memories, the rugged Norwegian nature, harsh weather conditions and a strong sense of Scandinavian traditions are still the sources of inspiration for Kari Traa’s designs. This is sportswear designed to perfectly fit the female body, but still fulfill the needs of an adventurous lifestyle.

The synthetic Fryd Pant (and Long Sleeve, sold separately) feature a casual, upbeat look and effectively wick away moisture when you are active. And unlike many other synthetic layers, this material feels silky smooth next to your skin.

Flatlock seams and 4-way stretch combine for the highest level of comfort and a body fitted silhouette makes layering easy. The Fryd is destined to become a favorite synthetic layer on days when you don’t need the ultra-thermal properties of wool.

For colder days and bigger missions, try the Rose Pant and Half Zip. The Rose Pant is tight-fitting with a classy, feminine design and is made from superfine, 100 percent Merino wool with 4-way stretch. It is wonderfully soft on the skin, breathable and naturally odor-resistant. Thinner side panels increase breathability and a strong elastic waistband keeps the pants snugly in place.

The Rose Half Zip, also superfine, 100 percent Merino wool with 4-way stretch, boasts thinner side panels under the arms and a zip with a high collar for increased breathability.
