Best thermal base layers
on: January 24, 2022, 05:32:42 PM
Looking for opinions on the best base layers.
I currently have some Spada Thermals but these need more base layers underneath even under my touring two piece.
I have been reading about Zerofit but wondered if there were others!
I am based in the chilly UK

I have got some icebreaker 260 baselayer leggings and have been out for hours with those under leather jeans with no problem at all at around freezing. Minus figures got chilly though so I would probably put another layer on. I didn't buy the top because they are so expensive but do seem to work well.

+1 on Icebreaker merino.  I have the 260 weight top but not the leggings.  Itís made a significant improvement to my winter riding comfort and doesnít add a lot of cumbersome bulk under my jacket.  The price is a bit saucy though.

I will admit to being a bit of a winter wuss though.  I also wear a Halvarssons merino base layer at the same time, which wasnít much cheaper.

I use Merino wool base layers from Mountain Warehouse. They constantly seem to have a sale on, so they werenít too expensive. Much cheaper than motorcycle specific base layers

I use icebreaker 260 weight when skiing. Just come back from Andora where it was minus 12 and it was fine with this base layer and jacket.

Electrics. Once you buy yourself a heated jacket liner, you'll regret all the years you didn't have one.
