Base Layer

Why buy a base layer garment ?

We  stock baselayer and compression garments by Canterbury , Optimum and Skins

Here are a several advantages that base layers provide the wearer with:

Muscle Compression

Base layers are also sometimes referred to as ‘compression wear’ due to the stretchable fabric that provides the wearer with a tight fitting under garment. This compression of the wearer’s muscles is the key benefit of base layer clothing.

Moisture Wicking

This is another primary benefit that a quality base layer will provide for the wearer. Moisture wicking base layers work by drawing sweat away from the wearer’s body during exercise and allowing it to evaporate on the surface of the material, rather than on the skin.

Temperature Control

A good base layer will help regulate your body temperature during exercise.
