Vanguard 469 MTS base layer


Price as reviewed:


Simple, well thought out design marries well to great fabric.

With a raglan cut to stop awkward shoulder seams digging in and details like a care label on the outside to prevent scratching, Vanguard clearly knows its stuff.



Tie it in with the exceptional warmth of its proprietary MTS fabric and you are onto a simple, elegant and worthwhile product that is impossible not to recommend.

    Been wearing them for the last couple of winters. A great replacement for the original and much loved Helly Hansen vest.
