The First Ascent range of high-performance baselayers feature the latest technology to expertly regulate your body's temperature during physical activity. By wicking moisture away from the skin's surface, you're kept cool and comfortable for longer. Our range of baselayers offer you the freedom to enjoy the outdoors, no matter the weather forecast.
The primary function of a baselayer is to ensure your body's core temperature is not only maintained, but constantly regulated.
Our baselayers are designed to wick moisture away from the body's surface in order to keep you dry and comfortable.
Our baselayers feature a next-to-skin fit in order to trap heat next to the skin and keep your body insulated.
Polypropylene does not absorb moisture due to the closed cell structure of the Polypropylene yarn, keeping you dry, fresh and odour free.
Bamboo has a natural, silky feel, offering unmatched comfort as a next-to-skin garment.
Polypropylene features excellent body heat retention due to its low conductive properties.
Polartec® Power Dry® was created to give base fabrics greater efficiency, more dependable wicking properties, faster dry times and better overall performance.
Polartec® Power Dry® is engineered with patented bi-component knit construction to enhance drying capabilities across the entire fabric structure. This dual surface approach maximizes performance by mechanically wicking sweat and vapor off your skin and directly transferring it to the outer surface where it diffuses for quick dry times
Polartec® Power Dry® pulls moisture directly from the skin and transfers it to the outer surface to quickly dissipate. This continuous evaporation process helps to keep you cool (as your body heat increases) and warm (when temperatures begin to drop).
Viloft transports moisture away from the body and it's anti-microbial action inhibits the growth of bacteria.
Viloft's flat fibre cross-section gives it excellent thermal insulation properties. The modified cross-section creates air chambers in the fabric that acts as a buffer against the cold.
Viloft fabrics offer up to 30% higher thermal insulation than cotton fabrics. A small percentage of Viloft is enough to make a significant difference in garment warmth.
Bamboo has a silky and natural feel next to the skin that allows for a more comfortable garment.
Bamboo aids in repelling moisture away from the skin's surface to the outside of the garment. This aids in keeping your skin dry, minimizes the risk of chafe and reduces odours due to the anti-bacterial properties.
Carbonised bamboo absorbs excess UV rays before it makes contact with your skin.
