Merino Wool Base Layers

winter ain't over yet...

The groundhog may have predicted an early spring, but in many parts of the country we still have plenty of winter left to enjoy. It’s time to bundle up and head outside.

From ski touring to trail running, choosing the right layers could mean the difference between one more lap and heading in early. And who wants to head in early? Ultimate warmth starts at the core, and nothing keeps your core more comfortable than the right baselayer system. Finding that right system for you shouldn’t be rocket science. In fact, we’ve already done all of the science for you.

 

 
 

Merino works with your body’s heating and cooling systems to help keep your core temperature steady. And when temperatures drop, SmartWool base layers work as a system to help manage moisture and keep you warm. If you tend to sweat a lot during exercise, Merino wool absorbs and releases that moisture better than synthetics to keep you drier.

Finding the best base layer system for you depends on what activities you’re doing and the temperature outside. The Micro 150 layers work great as a single layer in warmer weather or easily layer up when the mercury drops. Ideal when you’re really working up a sweat, say winter running or cycling, Micro 150 base layers work hard to regulate your temperature and manage moisture.

When the mercury drops even further, reach for Mid 250 base layers. These tops and bottoms are ideal mid-winter skiing and snowboarding base layers. The beauty of Merino is its ability to work together as a system. Chilly morning with a warm afternoon? Try a Micro 150 tee under a Mid 250 Zip Tee. Freezing morning with a chance of afternoon sun? A Micro 150 tee under a SmartLoft jacket helps regulates your body temp all day long. Anyway you layer them, our Merino base layers help you stay comfortable when you’re out there doing what you love. Six more weeks of winter or not, it’s still pretty cold outside, so layer up, head outside and enjoy the longer days ahead.
