What is the best materials for thermals?
There are lots of great thermal materials on the market today and it’s often down to personal preference as well as price. From natural fibres like sheep's wool & cotton to synthetic fibres & blends.
One of the most popular materials for baseleyars and thermals is merino wool; a natural, hypoallergenic insulator that is soft and hard wearing. Merino is also lightweight to wear so you’re not restructed by bulky layers.
Do I need thermals for skiing or snowboarding?
Some skiers and boarders will ride without thermals however if you’re new to the sport we highly recommend wearing them. They’re great for regulating body temperature; keeping you warm on the cold days and wicking away sweat when you’re hot. When you’re learning you may not be moving very quickly yet and there are often lift queues so you’ll want to make sure you stay warm enough to enjoy your day. Trust us, there’s nothing worse than getting cold on the hill!
Layering correctly with technical garments like thermals, mid layers and snow jackets, is much more effective at regulating body temperature on the snow fields than alternatives such as everyday jumpers & hoodies. Cotton fibres and jumpers may not wick sweat away when you cool down so you will quickly become cold as the materials are not designed for breathability and warmth.
