Woolpower Base Layers

High quality, Woolpower Merino Wool base layer clothing. Wear directly against the skin for moisture wicking and thermal insulation. Combined with mid-layers when more warmth is needed.

About Woolpower Base Layers

Woolpower base layer garments are made from light to mid-weight materials (LITE, 200g/m² and 400g/m²) that provide essential moisture wicking and thermal insulation, and are meant to be worn directly against the skin, as a first layer. Which material you choose is dependent on the combination of your level of activity and the outside temperature.

Woolpower base layers will retain body heat even when wet, and can be dried out quickly (by hanging, or putting in a sleeping bag overnight). Exact performance temperature ranges are difficult to establish (as there are variations in individual’s body chemistry, metabolisms and sensitivity to the cold), but in our experience Woolpower LITE excels in temperatures of -5°C to +15°C, or when engaging in aerobic activity (skiing, cycling) in colder weather where some thermal protection is required, but where heavier weights may cause too much perspiration or over heating.

200g/m² base layer garments are perfect for Canadian winters, and early spring or late fall seasons where temperatures run from -20°C to +10°C, and when moderate physical activity occurs. These garments offer the widest range of working temperatures, activity levels, and flexibility when using alone, or combining with other layers.

400g/m² base layer garments are highly useful when temperatures plunge below -20°C, when little to no movement occurs (during ice fishing or hunting for example), or if one is particularly sensitive to cold, and has difficulty keeping warm.
