As women’s snowsports increase in popularity, so do women’s clothing choices for snowboarding and skiing. The principles of layering for snowsports remain the same for men and women: a moisture-wicking base layer, insulating middle layer, and a wind- and water-resistant outer layer.
Some useful features to keep in mind when buying women’s thermal underwear to layer with ski and snowboard clothing:
- Lightweight: Women’s thermal underwear, just like men’s and children’s thermal underwear, should be light in weight and made of moisture-wicking synthetic material. Cotton women’s thermal underwear will leave you feeling cold and clammy as soon as you break a sweat. To maximize warmth and minimize bulk, seek out base layers made of microfiber, such as Hot Chillys’ Peachskins collection.
- Flattering shape: Many manufacturers of women’s thermal underwear recognize that women want their sports gear to look as good as it performs.
The Hot Chillys Peachskin Women’s ¼ zip turtleneck addresses both of these issues. The top includes a drop tail to help keep you toasty, as well as a zip front for when things heat up. The Hot Chillys Peachskin thermal underwear is soft to the touch; it also contains antimicrobial fibers to reduce odor and bacterial buildup, and it features flat seams to minimize bulk.
