About Polypro

Rooster Polypro is constructed from a combination of Polypropylene (94%) and Elastane (6%). We've brushed the inner fabric surface to give it a thick, fleece-like, high quality texture which feels incredibly warm and soft next to your skin. The resulting garments provides excellent thermal qualities making it the perfect base layer. Polypropylene is naturally hydrophobic, which means the fabric feels remarkably dry, even when wet. Wear it next to your skin underneath our neoprene Longjohns and Tops - in fact the possibilities are endless - our Polypro base layers would be great under your ski suit, drysuit, winter cycling, kayaking, walking and anytime you need a thermal base layer.

Also available as leggings, socks and headwear - see related items.

Laundry instructions

We recommend hand washing in warm water.

  • Breathable Polypropylene material wicks moisture away from the body
  • Brushed ´fleece´ inner providing excellent thermal qualities
  • Dries very quickly after use and washing due to the hydrophobic (water repellent) nature of polypropylene
  • Ideal for a range of outdoor activities in the colder months including skiing, road cycling, mountain biking and kayaking

    2 years on, and I still love the extra warmth this kit provides. I bought it for dinghy sailing on the sea, but it kept me plenty warm enough when I was learning to windsurf last year on my local inland lake too, with no loss of mobility under a steamer wetsuit.
  • Ian Brazier, weirwood, 21 July 2020
    Fantastic top, does exactly what is says on the tin! Wore this with thermaflex legs and was great for keeping dry but cooler that if i had worn a neoprene top.
  • James Lewin, 16 June 2020
    I absolutely love this top. I have used it across multiple disciplines from marathon kayaking, to surfing, cycling, triathlon, running and mountaineering. Incredibly versatile, lightweight and able to pack into small spaces, it is my ‘go to’ top when the conditions are likely to be variable and/or cold. My top is not to be confused with other gear that looks the same as it can quite often keep me warm on its own when others are layering up in the mountains. Because of its comfort and warmth my Rooster top is at the top of the pile when I pack for the next adventure such as gaining 2nd place in the Junior Doubles Devizes to Westminster International Canoe Race in 2019. 10/10 would recommend for any outdoor use.

    I wish I’d bought this years ago, it’s insulating and comfortable works great underneath your wetsuit or on its own in warmer temperatures.
  • Christopher Clarke, Bedford, 29 April 2020
    This base layer is so comfortable and warm, even after multiple capsizes, it doesn't get properly wet, which means you keep warm. Plus also when I go out running, wearing just this base layer, with nothing else on top keeps me 'toasty' warm.
  • Sam Mabey, Cowes, 15 March 2020
    Great thermals I use them for everything wicks away moisture so it doesn't even feel wet and super quick drying. Perfect for outdoor sports
  • arturo, santander, 10 February 2020
    wow, it is really warm and you feel like a thin lycra, super comfortable
  • Jon Elphick, Co. Durham, 03 November 2019
    Wore this as a base layer yesterday, Dinghy racing at Sunderland Yacht Club. Absolutely great - everything you've read about this top it true.
  • Tom Bates, Harrogate, 11 October 2019
    Very warm and comfortable for me to wear
  • Richard Towse, Felpham, 02 June 2019
    Wore this as a base layer on Ben Nevis in minus 3 Sunday. Kayaking on a lake as a top layer Wednesday and then under my ThermaFlex top for club racing on Saturday. The versatility of the PolyPro top means it might replace my AquaFleece as my favorite piece of Rooster kit.
  • Arielle Darrow, Norfolk, VA USA, 06 May 2019
    I love this top! It is great for layering under their wetsuits or just a great thermal to wear while you are rigging your boat. Very versatile.
  • Patrick Gill, Cornwall, 25 April 2019
    Great to keep you warm and comfortable in all conditions either on its own or with other layers.
  • Nick Welbourn , Lincoln, 18 July 2018
    An incredibly versatile layer that goes everywhere with me all year round. I gives a brilliant heat boost just when you need it and dries remarkably fast. A must have!
  • Malachy, Oxford, 09 January 2018
    Freezing team racing training on sunday but this top plus a pro aqua fleece kept me nice and toasty! The thumb holes are a very useful feature.
