Perfect for winter sports and cold weather.

Advantages of the Performance series

Our company headquarters are located on the Swabian Jura, surrounded by nature, in one of the most active regions in Germany. This, along with our extensive know-how, innovative spirit and experience, has helped us to develop the perfect sports underwear with optimal performance in cold temperatures. Now you’re ready for any winter activity, be it hiking, skiing, cross-country skiing or mountaineering.

Icon for wool and modal: sheep and leaf combined | mey®

Wool and modal with TENCEL™ fibres is the perfect material combination. The special knitting technique of “plating” places the soft, skin-friendly modal on the inner, skin-facing side of the fabric and the warm, insulating wool on the outside.

 Icon for soft touch: feather | mey®

Modal and TENCEL™ fibres are extremely soft and skin-friendly.

Icon for non-scratchiness: crossed-out cat paw with claws | mey®

Thanks to modal with TENCEL on the inside of the fabric, the underwear is not scratchy, unlike underwear made of pure wool.

Icon for odour-resistance: crossed-out skunk | mey®

Special bacteriostatic inserts under the arms and in the neck keep sweat patches at bay! They absorb moisture and prevent any unpleasant odours from developing. Wool is also naturally odour-resistant.

Icon for thermal regulation: thermometer with temperature scale | mey®

Wool is a highly effective insulating fibre that traps body heat, keeping you comfortably warm even in extremely cold temperatures.

Icon for breathability: two horizontal lines crossed by a wavy arrow | mey®

Breathable thanks to a combination of the two materials.

Icon for moisture regulation: water droplet with upward arrow | mey®

Moisture-regulating thanks to polyamide content.

“Thanks to its innovative material blend, the Performance series is ideal for every activity in the cold. The material utilises the advantages of the different fibres to maximum effect. As a result, mey Performance keeps you nice and warm and prevents heat loss during periods of inactivity.”

Holger Teufel | Knitting department

mey® Mitarbeiter Portrait von Christina Neumann

“Sports underwear has different requirements in terms of cut, design and comfort. That’s why we have designed our Performance series to have a close fit, a sporty cut, flat seams and comfortable, non-scratchy material.”

Christina Neumann | Head of Design Men

“What I like most about the Performance series are the innovative inserts under the arms. They are bacteriostatic and therefore odour-resistant. Perfect for sports in which you work up a sweat!”
