Thermals & First Layer

A common misconception is that a thermal base layer is designed to keep you warm. While this is true, a thermal base regulates body temperature to keep you warm but equally important; Stops you overheating. Under your jacket for extra warmth, choose a high-quality mid layer such as a puffer jacket, vest or polar fleece. During the day, it is quick and easy to remove this mid-layer if you overheat or to add another if you are cold. Our Le Bent base layers are made of a blend of Merimo Wool and Rayon from bamboo. Wear them when its -20 to keep you warm and keep wearing them when its +15 to keep you cool. Pair your thermal base layers up with a wool or polar fleece mid-layer and you’ll be comfortable in all-conditions.
