About this deal
Reasonably priced given its sustainability credentials (it’s made from 100% recycled polyester fibres), this top is best kept for wintry wear when strolling round the park or popping to the shops. Another notable development is the widespread adoption of recycled synthetic materials. Companies are innovatively utilizing recycled polyester, significantly reducing fossil fuel consumption and curbing the production of new plastics. For instance, Patagonia's Capilene Midweight base layer is crafted entirely from 100% recycled polyester, exemplifying the industry's commitment to environmental responsibility. By reusing materials, outdoor brands are actively reducing their ecological footprint and contributing to a circular economy. Synthetic baselayers are most often made of polyester, nylon, spandex, etc. They come in a wide range of styles, price points, and technologies, like adding silver to aid in antimicrobial properties.
The teens favorite baselayers are cheap ones I got from the REI brand on clearance. TMM Team Member Rita Zip base layers help you manually vent off some heat when you're working hard. Zip lengths go from ¼ zip to ½ zip. Zip base layers tend to be more technical and are often more expensive.As mentioned, the Cotopaxi Liso isn't the warmest option, as it's thinner and less warm than many of its rivals. It's also less warm than wool shirts of the same weight. If gone unwashed, the synthetic fabric will develop a funk if you after a few days of wear, despite the Polygiene application applied to the fabric. Be mindful when washing the Liso: all that stretch is accomplished by using a hefty amount of spandex in the fabric, and this will lose its stretchiness after enduring too many dryer cycles. If you want a great budget wool top, have a look at the Meriwool Merino 250. Teens tend to like that they are not itchy and feel like they’re a great, comfortable product at a great price point. Let’s be honest, we all fared perfectly well without them before (Image credit: Susumu Yoshioka) 5. Sun protection
Like the Icebreaker 150, the Trift has body-zone specific placement of material structures to regulate body temperature. Areas on the body that tend to retain too much warmth during movement, like the armpits, have a looser mesh weave. The seamless construction means that the varying material structures are highly effective yet comfortable. Seamless designs also reduce the chance of chafing or rubbing against the skin. It doesn’t matter how good (or how inexpensive) a base layer is if it doesn’t fit you properly! Most brands have sizing that ranges from XS to XL. Patagonia, Smartwool, Columbia, The North Face, and REI Co-op have more inclusive sizing, ranging from 2XS to 3XL. As more people like Jenny Bruso from Unlikely Hikers speak up about how tough it is to find plus-sized outdoor gear, we’re hopeful that more brands will step up.
Analysis and Test Results
Some base layer brands understand that people of all sizes love getting outside. Some brands still have yet to get the memo. Smartwool and Patagonia have the broadest range of sizes available, including plus sizes and kids’ sizes. Do you want base layers tight or loose?
