It's All About The Base, Base, Base!

Base layers- not the sexiest piece of kit and possibly one that wasn't high on your list of things to buy, but they are essential and not a bit of kit that should be overlooked. For a little while now one particular piece of kit has become a mainstay in our armoury and that is the Bontrager B1 Base Layer.


Now, while the B1 will keep you presently warm on cooler days, it's when the mercury rises that it really comes into it's own. The B1 is a lightweight base layer that's designed to wick sweat away from your skin in warmer weather, it does this using a textured surface to minimise the amount of contact between the skin and the garment. This waffle knit also helps create air pockets To further aid moving sweat from your skin the B1 is made from polypropylene filament yarn and a full mesh knit construction to make sure that both air can get to your skin as well as sweat can move away.


Finished with flatlock stitching and a fitted cut so not to feel bulky when worn under a jersey or jacket. Available in short sleeve and sleeveless as well as women's fit, the B1 base layer is a well finished, comfortable garment that will keep you cool when the heat is on!
