As the world’s first climate positive sportswear brand, Presca is dedicated to seeking out materials and production methods which epitomise our eco principles. Investing in unwanted, undyed, end-of-roll technical fabric meant we could create this limited run of base layer tops, which offer you the ultimate in comfort and sustainability. 


    • Squishable, super soft fabric.
    • Raglan sleeve, flatlock seams, packable pocket and fast-drying for comfort and convenience.
    • Excellent absorption for comfort in every weather, with a revolutionary skin moisturising effect.

    In neutral, goes-with-everything egret, this base layer will probably be the most comfortable, feel-good garment you’ll ever wear. How can we be so sure? Because it’s made with a performance engineered yarn which provides superb comfort and softness, while also delivering on sustainability. The fabric is solvent-free, recycled and fully recyclable at the end of its life, plus washing it creates no microplastic pollution.

    Washing the ‘Presca Way…’

    We’ve put together a few tips about how you can reduce the environmental impact of your laundry.  

    Our sizing is taken from three main measurements.

    Chest should be measured just below the armpits, with arms relaxed by your side (we recommend asking someone to help with this!).

    Waist should be measured at the thinnest part of your torso (normally between your belly button and rib cage).

    Hips should be measured at the largest part of your bottom.

    So soft and comfortable

    Really great shape, it is snug fitting but comfortable as it's really stretchy. I wore it on a chilly damp day under a club running vest, and was warm enough after a few minutes - and never got too over-heated, so it definitely gets my vote! Nice to have a little pocket in the back too.

    Simply flawless (and warm too!)

    Okay...long review incoming!
    I had my eye on this base layer for a while as I love wearing a long sleeve with shorts for my Autumnal runs. This base layer is perfect.
    The aesthetic and look of the Egret base layer makes me want to just show it off to everyone. Not only that, but it provides the perfect level of warmth on a run. I also wear it under my sports kit for Saturday matches or on a windy dog walk with a t-shirt thrown on top. Basically any chance I can wear it, I will! And it is made in the UK and climate positive! You cannot fault it.
    This is such a versatile piece of kit. I was initially torn between a size Small or Medium but the small sold out as I was about to purchase it, however I am very glad that I got a medium. I am 5'9 and have broad shoulders so the medium is perfect.
    Also, if you are a winter Parkrunner, this baselayer has a discreet pocket placed on the left of your lower back to pop in your barcode to scan at the end of the 5k.
    It is very soft even after many washes and a flattering fit.
    I think I love this top more than I love running itself (and I really LOVE running)! Everyone should buy this base layer!

    My new go-to baselayer

    I'm not one for wearing fitted cycling jerseys, which means I always lose out on the pocket storage....BUT NO MORE! The Egret baselayer is the softest top I've ever come across, it fits like a glove AND it has a rear pocket. This has really come into its own when cycling and rowing. It's just the right thickness to give protection from windchill without then overheating on tough climbs or when out on the water, etc. Top product - I'm gearing up to get a second top to have in reserve as I wear my current one for basically everything.
