Base layer guide

Choose the right base layer for your working conditions

The base layer   is made up of the snug-fitting underwear next to your skin and is key to a smart layering system. The main purpose of the base layer is to wick moisture away from your body and keep you dry and comfortable outside no matter the weather. Base layers come in natural materials like wool and silk, as well as synthetic materials like polyester and microfleece. All materials wick away moisture and are quick drying, but other features, like weight, odour control and warmth vary slightly. Use our guide to find out which underwear set is the best fit for your working conditions and activity level.

High-performing base layers for cold weather

Our highest quality and most technically advanced base layers excel in the coldest temperatures, keeping you toasty even during light to moderate physical activity. In addition to providing great moisture transportation and breathability, these base layers sport soft comfort and outstanding insulating power when you need it the most. Our warmest underwear comes in three different models made of synthetic as well as natural materials. Choose between naturally odour-repellent merino wool, a heavier insulating tricot in three layers, or our most premium base layer made of Polartec® micro fleece, which can be used in temperatures down to -30C.
