From hiking to cycling, select a base layer which is optimally suited to the type of activity and conditions, cause staying dry is key to staying warm.
Each baselayer offers its own unique properties, from quick-drying, odour control to improved recovery post-exercise.

Baselayers are an essential garment and form the foundation layer within the layering system. It is important that when selecting your outerwear, to consider items which can be layered together for ultimate warmth, yet preserve your ability to move freely and in comfort.
Baselayers should be fitted on your body in order to maintain temperature and wick-moisture away from the body's surface. It is extremely important to select the correct baselayer for the type of activity, in order to improve its efficiency.
