what is warmest base layer ?
I have a very warm old heavy icebreaker merino which has fallen to bits. I also have one of the part merino Helly ones which is toasty. Applying the one out one in policy allowes me a new one:-) Criteria is warm as poss, for use on proper cold days when wanting more than regular BaaBaa or icebreaker. Will be single layer under either Stealth or Altura Attack.Posted 4 years agoCaptainFlashheartMember
Of the ones I have;
Helly Warm – Very impressive kit.
Odlo – A bit kinky, toight like a toiger fitting, but oh so good at temperature regulation
Endura/Altura Merino (Same thing, different badge) – OK as a bargain basement option.
Smartwool – Hmmm, toasty lovely!
Icebreaker – Nice. Not something I’d pay for, but very nice
(Worked in the ski/bike trade for some time, and base layers are/were a popular freebie! I’ve got drawers full of the stuff!)Posted 4 years agoCraigWMember
I want to try one of these, synthetic and should be very warm – Ussen Baltic Norj http://www.ussen.co.uk/index.php/products/activeskinz-tops/long-sleeve-top/Posted 4 years agocyclingdiogenesMember
I can recommend Helly Hansen Freeze – nice fit, warm and cosy. I have 3 of them and wear almost everyday, even in a pub. Yup, they’re quite expensive but I have never paid full price for it (usually around 30 quid on sale).Posted 4 years ago
If you don’t mind really long turtle neck, go for a Helly Hansen Verglas Hybrid, I think that’s the warmest base layer form HH.Kryton57Subscriber
I’ve got one of those for road riding, they are brillant.

Helly Hansen stuff is fantastic and won’t cost an arm and leg.
The Helly Hansen Kastrup is actually a work wear top – I’ve worn mine through 2 winter season working on ski hills as well as whatever other activity in the cold – mtb’ing, walking, climbing etc. I have stocked about 4 of these in case they stop making them!Posted 4 years ago
