We’re going to tell you a little secret... Some of you already know, but not many use this knowledge and continue to use moisture-absorbing fabrics underneath a functional piece of apparel. The key to staying warm and comfortable is not by adding multiple layers of the same material or use fabrics that absorb moisture. The way to stay in the comfort zone is to wear the right layers, made of the right materials underneath your protective outer-shell. Enter the Sky LS shirt.
We are talking about layers that wick away moisture as quickly as possible so your skin remains dry and continues to breathe. Your skin is your biggest asset in terms of body temperature regulation. Wet skin doesn’t breathe. Period. In winter, wet skin leads to hypothermia. This is because the surface moisture cools down and, in turn, rapidly brings your body temperature down along with it.
A simple but highly-effective way, no matter what sports or leisure activity you are undertaking, is to wear a so-called push-pull base layer under your high-performance sports garments. A base layer that quickly transports moisture through the fabric, away from the skin, spreading quickly over the outside of the fabric where it can more easily evaporate and/or be wicked away through the next layer, provided that’s a functional layer, as well.
The Sky long-sleeve (LS) shirt has been developed to do exactly this. Additionally, the Sky LS shirt has been designed to look like you’re wearing a casual garment when you take off your jacket. But make no mistake, this is a high-performance base layer: your first layer of defence against the elements.
