Palm Equipment Arun Baselayer – First Look

Palm Equipment’s new Arun Baselayer arrived at Unsponsored HQ this week.

The Arun is part of Palm’s new 3 layer system and is available for both men and women. Both retail at £29.95.

From Palm:

Core 1 baselayers use Channel Flow technology to rapidly draw water away from your skin‚ helping to keep you dry‚ warm‚ and comfortable. Made from soft‚ supple polyester‚ with ActiveSeam stitching‚ the Arun moves and stretches as you do‚ for a new level of layering comfort.


The Arun baselayer arrived in a nice little box with details of the Core layering system and sizing on the outside. I went up a size after trying a large on a few months earlier. The XL gave me a fit that was close enough but not athletic tight!



The top has everything you would expect from any well designed top including flat lock seams, 3d cut, and a decent length.

The Core 1 Arun won’t provide a great deal of thermal insulation. However it is designed to provide a route for sweat to move away from the skin therefore helping to regulate temperature and keep you comfortable. It is ideal for part of a layering system, whether it is a Palm based layering system or not.

The Arun is going in the kit bag for the next few weeks to see how it holds up both on and off the water.
