Recent Base Layer Top Reviews

U.S. Armed Forces Gen III, Level 2 ECWCS Top

rated 5 of 5 stars U.S. made Polartec Power Grid fleece top for $20. Compare to the $100 Patagonia R1 which is now made overseas. I find myself wearing the level 2 grid fleece top (aka waffle top) more than any other garment when playing outdoors. Here's why: Ultra breathable Great wicking properties Warm, even as an outer layer Versatile: can be used effectively as a base, mid, or outer layer Thumb holes to facilitate the donning of other layers Half zip for venting Even if I do sweat while wearing this, the impressive… Full review

Sherpa Adventure Gear Men's Baans Tech Quarter Zip

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Used this for basecamp warmth after hiking 7 to 9 hours in the fall Maine weather. After hiking all day relied on this to stay warm while setting up campsite and in the cool fall Maine mornings to stay warm while breaking down. Keeps you extremely warm and comfortable during these critical times. This pullover fits great and is extremely comfortable after a long day of hard hiking. Provides essential warmth in the cool fall Maine weather after a great day's hiking, or in the early cold fall mornings. Full review

Kora Shola 230 Crew

rated 5 of 5 stars Warm, soft, well-fitting, comfortable even in warmer temperatures. It's been years since I've lived in a climate cold enough for a base layer. Actually it's been 13 years... I remember them as itchy, uncomfortable, and most of the time I would rather freeze than wear them. I definitely have needed them since returning, and I decided to bite the bullet and pick up a set for the upcoming winter, which the Farmer's Almanac says will be one of the coldest winters in some time. I typically would not… Full review

Patagonia Men's Capilene 2 Lightweight Zip-Neck

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Super lightweight at 6.5 oz. Very quick dry. Super open breathability without giving up warmth. Great light, breathable, super quick dry base layer. Fits snug to body, but doesn't stick. Allows for easy layering without that cramped tight feeling. Don't leave home without it!!!! Full review

Kora Shola 230 Zip

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Kora’s yak wool Shola 230 Zip base layer beats the itch of other wool. It provides a lot of warmth without a lot of weight or thickness. This zippered base layer top is constructed using Kora’s own Hima-Layer Original 230 yak wool fabric. All testing of the Kora Shola 230 base layer was done on the ski hill. I am very sensitive to lamb’s wool, and was pleasantly surprised when I first put the Kora zip base layer on. Immediately it became evident that not only is yak wool not itchy, it has… Full review

Voormi Women's Thermal ll Baselayer Top

rated 5 of 5 stars Well worth the investment...this brand is amazing! This is one of the most comfortable performance tops I have owned. It's lightweight but warm...perfect for every season. The fit is amazing and very flattering. The fabric is wool, but not uncomfortable itchy. Great for layering or wearing on its own. Well worth the investment! Full review

Icebreaker Women's Oasis Long Sleeve Crewe

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I own three of these, and they are the most useful pieces of outdoor clothing I've ever owned. Since I travel a lot and only take a carry-on, I find the Icebreaker Oasis Crewe comes off the mountain and dresses up fairly nicely for supper in the city. They never smell. They dry quickly and wash beautifully. I own three Crewe shirts in black, black, and fuchsia. Although the black ones are more versatile, I love the bright pink colour. If you like your shirts loose, take a size larger. They do occasionally… Full review

Icebreaker Men's Everyday Long Sleeve Crewe

rated 5 of 5 stars I would fill my closet with these shirts!! I've had this shirt for a few months now. I went on a two-week road trip Quebec-Colorado-Grand Canyon-Vegas and all the way back, and had this shirt for most of the time and skied with it. Came back and nobody could've said so by looking at it or smelling it. I am 6' - 175 lbs and took the XL so I could wear it with a looser fit, which also permits me to wear another tighter layer of merino underneath when really cold. So instead of packing 5-6 T-shirts,… Full review

Patagonia Men's Capilene Daily T-Shirt

rated 4 of 5 stars Dries fast, inexpensive and comfortable... This is Patagonia's Daily T-Shirt, advertised as being a regular cut so you won't look out of place in town. It's made out of the same quick drying Capilene polyester as the discontinued Capilene 1 Silkweight T-Shirt, with the same Polygiene odor control, but it comes in more "normal" colors. Also listed among its features are gusseted underarms (I don't know what that means) and 50+ sun protection. The material is good stuff, it's more abrasion resistant… Full review
