The Great Outdoors – May 2013


This season’s Dhu Performance Jersey has been tested and reviewed in detail in the May 2013 issue of The Great Outdoors, the 35th anniversary issue of the UK’s premier walking and climbing magazine.

Daniel Neilson, Editor, commented on the Performance Jersey – “I’ve been wearing them a lot this winter, usually over a merino base layer, including in some pretty chilly situations and found them superb at regulating temperature from around -6c to +10c. They are effortlessly comfortable – I have never really noticed I was wearing one. The fit is snug, but very stretchy – it’s built with winter climbing in mind – and breathable. I never overheated.

This is a luxury product and is incredibly functional, and the fact that it is made in Scotland should be applauded. Exciting things coming from Dhu”.



Ski Base Layers – The Golden Rules


Dhu Performance Cashmere’s Performance Jersey featured in the We Love 2 Ski article reviewing ski base layers and the ‘Golden Rules for Keeping Warm’. The Dhu garment was tested and reviewed by We Love 2 Ski’s Editor, Peter Hardy. Peter is also the skiing correspondent for The Daily Telegraph.


Peter commented – “In my time I’ve tried every form of microfiber in an effort to keep warm on the mountain in mid-winter. I find it quite extraordinary that fabric used by the likes of Shackleton and Hillary is actually the best of all. I admit to having been pretty skeptical when Dhu introduced me to it, but I am now a complete convert”.
