Can you give us a little background on Megmeister? Megmeister was created five years ago with a very simple premise in mind: to create the best performance sportswear available. We started in our mission with the creation of baselayers. We defined ‘being the best’ across three key areas. Namely, comfort, fit and performance. As such, our Drynamo baselayers are completely seamfree and created out of one piece of material making them extremely comfortable to wear. We create our baselayers using a special yarn that does not trap bacteria so that our garments don’t need

to be washed after every use. Through advanced knitting techniques, we are also able to create ventilation zones in all the right places to ensure that sweat gets pushed from the inside of the garment to the outside while keeping the skin dry, which stops the wearer from getting cold. The majority of other baselayers cannot achieve the level of breathability that we are able to with our Drynamo yarn as many other fibres don’t allow the body to breathe properly, blocking the body’s normal perspiration process altogether or, at best, allowing it to function for a limited period only.
