Stio.com offers a dynamic duo for the cold weather enthusiasts: the Basis Peakwool Men’s Large Basis Midweight Merino Tight and the Basis Midweight Merino Crew. These baselayers are designed to keep you warm, dry, and comfortable in chilly conditions, and after putting them to the test, they certainly stand out in the crowded field of outdoor apparel.
Basis Midweight Merino Crew:
The Basis Midweight Merino Crew is a testament to the comfort and versatility of merino wool. Designed for cold conditions, this baselayer delivers soft-on-skin comfort and exceptional thermal regulation. The proprietary PeakWool™ fabric combines the natural properties of merino wool, Tencel, recycled nylon, and spandex, resulting in a fabric that regulates body temperature, resists odors, and manages moisture effectively.
Living in Boise, Idaho, where temperatures can drop, I found the Basis Crew to be a reliable companion. The thumbholes make layering easy, whether you’re working in the office or exploring the great outdoors. The fabric’s heat transfer labels and tag-free design are a welcome touch, adding to the overall comfort.
Moisture-wicking is exceptional, with the fabric maintaining its structure even when saturated. The Basis Stretch top has proven to be a high-quality piece, excelling in both skiing adventures and relaxed moments at home.
