How To Choose A Base Layer

331 Views 0 Comment

The key to staying warm while taking on the wintery outdoors is layering! There are three layers to consider: base layer, mid layer and outer shell. Depending on what activity you are doing and the temperature, not all layers may be necessary. Under Armour has created an excellent line of base layers with a variety of options to keep you warm as you weather seasonal elements.

What Is A Base Layer?

Under Armour Base layers consist of men’s, women’s and youth thermal long-sleeved shirts and leggings in varying weights. These pieces have a next-to-skin fit without feeling like compression. Because it is essential for your base layer to keep you dry, the Under Armour’s Signature Moisture Transport System wicks moisture away from the skin as the quick dry fabric ensures your comfort. In order to trap heat and provide warmth, the fabric has a soft, brushed negative grid interior. With smooth, chafe-free flatlock seams and 4-way stretch fabric, you can comfortably layer and move to enjoy all your outdoor seasonal activities.

UA Base 2.0

The lightest of the three options, UA Base 2.0 shirt and leggings are great to layer in cool to cold conditions. These items are ideal to wear for a run outdoors or to layer under a fashionable outfit as you cheer on your team at a fall football game!

UA Base 3.0

Ready to hit the slopes? Grab your UA Base 3.0 thermal layers! These pieces are just what you need for skiing, snowboarding or just to play in the snow. This mid-weight layer is perfect for being active in colder conditions.

UA Base 4.0

For the most brutal winter temperatures, put on UA Base 4.0 for superior warmth. Add this piece under your hunting clothing to stay warm in your tree stand as you wait for the perfect shot. Being the warmest of the Under Armour’s base layer line, I have received feedback from several first responders and correctional officers that UA Base 4.0 is perfect for the job when working outside on cold winter nights.
