Back and Better Than Ever

This is the best baselayer we've ever made. Period. Years of development and iteration led us to a new synthetic fabric that feels like cotton, but wicks like synthetic. It incorporates Graphene nanomaterial for increased heat transfer and odor reduction and comes in at UPF 55+ sun protection to keep you from getting microwaved up high. 

Need to Know

Men's Graphene Hoody

I have used the item in my travel's and it has been a good addition to the rest of my gear. It was very lightweight and took up very little space in my pack. I have yet to use it in the rain. The material keeps the cold out and is very comfortable also. With a rain shell, I believe this item would be fine with a wool base layer for temps below 40 degrees .

Bight Delivered

The Solstice Graphene Hoody is a critically important piece of gear for the overwhelming heat and windy, dust storm conditions encountered in a high-desert environment. Over the years, I’ve spent a small fortune testing and trying similar gear which failed, disappointed, or proved to be inferior in one way or another. Most gear dealers made boastful claims and empty assurances, meanwhile, Bight quietly delivered the goods.

My favorite piece(s) of clothing

Bought the sky blue men's solstice graphene hoody from Whittaker Mountaineering and loved it so much I went to the Bight Gear website and bought it again in sunset orange. By far the best fitting, most comfortable pieces of clothing I own. I'm definitely a Bight Gear believer

Became my go-to

I have been wearing these hoodies for over a year over several hundred miles of hiking and they have become my four season go to. They are comfortable, dry quickly and are comfortable against the skin when wet. In the winter (in the North East) I wear a Brynje mesh layer underneath it and have had great success wearing these two layers with sweat management. Hoping they come out with a short sleeve version soon!

Can't wait until next year's inventory!

I bought the gold/yellow sun hoody and absolutely love it. I've worn it as a base layer on colder hikes and love the thumbholes + stretchy hood (which easily fits over my climbing helmet). I also use the hoody on sunnier, exposed days, and it does a good job of keeping me shaded without added heat. I bought a second hoody (the blue one)due to my experience with the first one, recommended it to my climbing partner, and tried to by one for my mom for use on her kayak (although there were no women's XS left!). Can't wait for more colors and inventory :)
