Berghaus Tech-T Review by Country Walking

Berghaus Short Sleeve Tech T came 1st in Country Walking magazine’s test of baselayers / active outdoor t-shirts.

Baselayers and Thermalwear

Your baselayer is one of the most underestimated items of gear.  You should read more about  the importance of baselayers, but the generally you need to make sure they are part of your gear list, in addition to a thermal / fleece mid-layer or insulated layer and a shell / waterproofs.

Berghaus Tech-T Baselayer Product Specification

Argentium is an engineered polyester fabric exclusive to Berghaus.  Argentium offers permanent moisture management and wicking properties through the use of a denier gradient knit structure and channeled yarns.

Interestingly, Argentium has permanent odour resist properties through the use of a silver ion technology. The knitted fabric structure in these tees has been body mapped to maximise air flow, hence creating the breathability quality we see.

  • Permanent UV blocking properties (SPF>30).
  • Argentium is an engineered polyester fabric exclusive to Berghaus.

Here’s Country Walking’s review of the Tech-T’s performance…


Perfect cut and length, but I’d have preferred slightly longer sleeves.  The polyester fabric felt great next to the skin.


Dealt with perspiration and dried as well as any, but with less noticeable odour after use than the runners-up.  Appealing sporty yet casual looks.


About as good as a crew neck synthetic T-shirt can be and at an excellent price to boot!

…looks like it’s a winner!  You can find a range of reduced baselayers and thermals in the outdoor shop.
