Akle Suit

The soft Kari Traa Akle Suit, inspired by old Norewegian heritage and knitting traditions, adds a dash of fun to your winter getup. This one-piece suit is constructed completely from merino wool to keep you warm through cold and wet conditions while also naturally repelling odors to keep you fresh for your full day on the slopes. Thanks to its form-fitting cut, you can easily layer it under your mid and outer layers while a drawcord at the waist cinches up for a great fit and the fixed hood wears comfortably under your helmet for added warmth.

  • One-piece wool baselayer for comfort in cold winter activities
  • Merino construction naturally repels odors for lasting freshness
  • Fabric has a soft handfeel for comfort throughout the whole day
  • Drawcord at the waist cinches up for a snug and comfortable fit
  • Fixed hood traps in body heat and fits nicely under a helmet
  • Norwegian heritage print has a modern twist for mountain style
  • Form-fitting cut layers easily for extra cold days on the slopes

Perfect Sleepwear

This "suit" is warm and comfy without being itchy (even before washing!) I bought this with the intent to use it for sleeping and for that it'll work great! However, as a baselayer, I don't think it's the best. First of all, without a flap or zipper in the crotch region, the top part has to be unzipped and taken off, which is annoying to do when it's underneath lots of other layers. It may not sound like a big deal until you have to use the bathroom in the backcountry. Secondly, it's a slightly looser fit for anyone who isn't Scandinavian size. I always get medium in other two-piece Kari Traa baselayers and they fit wonderfully. This has slightly more length than I need and I'm 5'7"! If you're tall, it'll probably work out. If you're shorter, don't plan to use it as a baselayer unless you're okay with either some sag up top or in the crotch region. Overall, definitely the comfiest pajamas or lounge wear for those colder days.

Wish I could live in it!

This is my new favorite base layer! It's summer right now but I have been wearing it around the house on any cold night because I love it so much! Counting down the days to wear it under my gear skiing. It is made of merino wool so it's warm but it's not itchy to me at all!
