A good ski and snowboard baselayer can make or break your day on the slopes. Wear the right thing, and you’ll be comfortable. Wear the wrong thing, and your day will be ruined due to a cold, unhappy body. Looking for a specific size, style, or colour? Contact us to see if we have it in stock!
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR UNDERNEATH MY SKI JACKET?
A good, sweat-wicking baselayer might be the single most important piece of ski and snowboard equipment you own. Skiing and snowboarding are active sports, and even though the temperature is sub zero, you’re probably still going to sweat. A sweat-wicking baselayer will remove this sweat from your skin, thereby letting your body maintain a more comfortable temperature.
HOW DO MERINO WOOL BASELAYERS WORK?
Merino wool pulls moisture to the surface of the fabric, where it evaporates before it turns into sweat and cools your body. It absorbs moisture, but it also dries extremely fast. Merino wool baselayers are also very lightweight, breathable and odour resistant. What’s not to love about that?
WHY SHOULDN’T I WEAR COTTON?
While that cotton hoodie might look good in the classroom, that doesn’t mean you should wear it underneath your jacket. Cotton absorbs moisture, and that moisture is going to make you cold. Even if you’re wearing a heavily insulated jacket, a cotton baselayer can ruin your day. If there’s one thing you do, please avoid it.
