Cheerful Marmot Base Layers with a Jolly £10 off

Who needs a scratchy Christmas Jumper when you can be just as festive with a brightly coloured technical base layer from Marmot.

A versatile cold weather layering piece, this zip-neck midweight baselayer harnesses the performance technology of Polartec® Power Dry® recycled polyester to provide quick-wicking warmth and rapid dry time. Cocona® activated carbon naturally controls odor and provides UPF 40 protection. Stretchy Elastane, forward seaming and raglan sleeves allow for optimum mobility. Despite being described as "midweight" this is quite a substantial base layer that will really keep you warm in cold conditions and could even be used as a mid-layer in milder weather. With £10 off the RRP our price for this is £45 (available in the Peebles shop while stocks last)

So much has changed over the years we've been here. I fact, I was wracking my brains to think if there is anything in the shop that we sold on day one that we still sell, unchanged, now. The best I could come up with is tent pegs and the flat, square batteries that go in the old style Petzl Zoom headtorches.
Petzl stopped making the Zoom a few years ago but there are lots of them still around (probably a few that might be 20 years old and still operational) so we still have a steady requirement for the batteries. For the rest, in 20 years products have got lighter, more breathable, more efficiently waterproof, more specifically designed for a particular end use rather than generic…
