Thermals & First Layer

Thermals, also known as base layers, are designed to provide warmth and moisture management for your body. They are typically worn next to your skin and serve as the foundation for layering in cold weather. Thermals or base layers keep you warm by trapping air between your skin and the fabric. Thermals are made from materials such as polyester or merino wool and are designed to wick away moisture from your skin, preventing sweat from accumulating and keeping you dry. This is important because wet clothing can quickly cool down your body, leading to discomfort and sometimes hypothermia. Base layers such as Le Bent are made of a blend of merino wool and rayon from bamboo. We advise to wear a high-quality base layer in all conditions as you will stay warm, dry, and comfortable across all temperatures.
