A winter baselayer should be warm, but still breathable. A high zipped neck and long hem are also essential. In this group test we've trialled winter weight baselayers from a number of leading brands.
Men’s and Women’s Thermo Hoody
The new Thermo Half Zip Fleece Jacket from Marmot is made from Polartec's Power Dry High Efficiency fabric which is designed to keep your skin dry when you sweat.
The fabric features a bi-component knit construction that uses different yarns on either side of the fabric. This creates two different surfaces: one that is optimized to move moisture away from the skin, the other to dry quickly. The high efficiency fleece offers excellent levels of warmth considering its low weight and excellent compressibility.
Elastane stretch has also been built into the fabric to ensure the product is not pulled out of shape whilst in use.
