How to choose the best thermals for men and thermals for women*

Understanding fabrics and their ability to keep you warm and dry in winter can seem complicated. So we will simply explain why a thermal base layer, made from a natural fibre such as wool, should be your starting point for managing your warmth and comfort during the colder months.

*Hint, they contain yak wool!

There are many factors to consider other than just the right ‘look’. Here is our guide to choosing the right type of thermals for men and thermals for women.

How To Pick The Right Thermal Clothes:

1. Ensure they don’t restrict your movement:

Whilst thermal clothes should be worn skin-fit against your body, they should not be so tight they restrict movement. A good thermal will actually aid your movement, keeping warmth in and ensuring the body gets no shocks from blasts of cold air.

2. Check For Smoothness

Whether you are buying thermals for men or thermals for women, ensuring the fabric is soft to the touch with flat, well crafted seams, will save you from regretting your purchase. Rougher fabric, zip edges and bulky seams will create friction and rub on the body causing itching and abrasions. Even the slightest irritation can ruin your day.

3. Pick The Right Fabric

Research the difference between synthetic and natural fibres and how heat transfer occurs through different materials. We will always recommend wool garments for excellent natural moisture wicking and the ability to keep you dry when layering fabrics. When you are dry, you can maintain your optimal body temperature for longer… trapped sweat is the enemy as it will make you wet and cold very quickly. Wool also has wonderful and natural no-stink qualities meaning you can wear your kit for longer without washing it… a bonus if you are up the mountain for days.
