The Ultimate Affordable Base Layers
STRIPES GEAR base layers are the ideal next-to-skin garment for any outdoor activity or for just keeping you warm on those cold days & nights. The polypropylene fiber transfers perspiration to the outside of the garment to evaporate – creating a personal ‘climate control zone’ and preventing post-exercise chill.
Made in the South Island of New Zealand using Premium Schoeller Polypropylene, Stripes Gear designs functional and fun base layers for everyone from 18 months up to Adults XLarge. We are a family business proudly operating from Invermere BC Canada, where the mountains that shelter us, give us life, a living and a playground. We know our gear, because we need our gear, everyday.. we get it! Discover Stripes Gear for yourself and feel the Stripes Difference..
Warmer... Drier... Happier...
NEW and in STOCK FOR 2017
We've had an amazing response to the Double knee Idea. Developing the double knee pant was a lot of fun and we hope you'll get additional wear time with them. The Kootenay Krazy is named from the region that we call home.. the East Kootenays. This colour way is full of deep primary colours and represents the changing seasons in our Valley. This base layer pant will keep your child warm and happy.

Why invest in Stripes Gear instead of other base layers?
At Stripes Gear, it is our passion to produce high performance, stylish base layers that look and feel great for the entire family.
Stripes Gear is custom machine knitted to our specs and stitched by hand, so I feel a little piece of New Zealand goes into every pair. We want the parents and family of great folks all over the world to feel how warm and cosy Stripes Gear can be. It is our cheeky belief, that by providing bright colours to the winter mix, we can only bring a smile to the face of everyone who tries them.
Happy folks have said...
I just received a pair of these candy cane stripes and they are super soft and comfortable to wear. I wore them as a single base layer on a 60 degree day and wasn't too hot in them. I can't wait to wear them next year all season long. They also seem like they will be great for a hiking trip I have planned this summer to the top of Mt. Washington.
I am stripe man!!!!
My son loves his stripes! He's stripe man!!!! Makes him skate faster on the ice ;)
It's About Being Warm
Polypropylene has the best thermal properties of any known fibre - natural or man made. Lowest moisture regain (minimal absorption) - hygienic, garments stay light ‘n’ dry, whereas Merino/wool (wicks & absorbs moisture) becomes wet, heavy, and clammy.
Floats in water
(performs well underneath wet suits)
(machine HOT washable), durable, color-fast, non staining
Quick dry, quality material
Kelly Said...."These are a super fun set that kept my daughter comfortable on a spring day with just a sweatshirt and ski pants. They are so colorful and well made. I ordered them a little big so she can wear them next year. She never got hot or sweaty in them, and they are not thick so you could layer up with them as well if needed."
