Heavy Weight Base Layer

Postby tylermacguire » Wed Dec 12, 2012 9:18 am

Hey All,

I'm in the market for a pair of heavy weight base layer bottoms. I want to get something to keep warm riding in bounds on cold days and thought I would see if any of you have recommendations.

Thanks,

Tyler

Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.

I usually get my underlayers from patagonia. I have had great luck with all their stuff, esp when its freezing out.

Polartec power stretch is pretty awesome. It's the heaviest I've ever needed and is really stretchy.

You can find off brands that use the fabric and get a pair for ~$30 especially if you look at STP. Name brand will cost you upwards of $80.
The mountains - whose summits reach or exceed arbitrary thresholds for elevation and prominence - are calling and I must go.

If you're cold, you're not skiing hard enough.

Or early season for that matter. It is way warmer sitting on the chair than it is tearing down a groomer at 60 MPH.
