Do you love to stay active in the winter with good protection but hate the idea of bulking up? We get that. With us, it’s always quality over quantity, and we actually suggest you to layer smartly instead of shoving their entire winter wardrobe on.
You should be able to enjoy your winter sports without a heavy weight of clothes that makes you sweaty and tired.
That is why we believe that with Columbia base layers you only need a few great lightweight items to achieve the ideal balance between warm but not so hot that you’re sweating after half an hour.
Base layers women love
Our base layers are not only stacking, layering soft items. You can wear them alone as warmer weather activewear. Outdoor activities that take place in heat as well as winter can be enjoyable with our women’s base layers.
As you can imagine, a base layer is a clothing item that is designed to be worn as a basis in layering, or alone. A base layer can be a good pair of leggings with a quality, breathable T-shirt or a long sleeve shirt with some lightpants.
Why do women love our base layers?
Base layers keep you warm. Usually when you go for warm options, you go for thick fabrics, several pairs of socks, long sleeve shirts over a tee, plus jackets, boots and ski gloves… But give it some time and you’ll start to sweat. And if it’s really cold and windy, you might get sick.
Our base layers are made with special technologies that prevent this from happening. You can layer just a few items and you’re good to go.
Another reason women love our base layers is because they are versatile. They can be activewear but they’re also super comfortable when you’re simply running errands around town, or even going to work.
Technologies we use in creating base layers for women
At Columbia, we believe that science is as important for creating a good item of clothing as the choice of fabrics and the craftsmanship. That’s why our team of experts work super hard to come up with technologies that will keep you warm, dry, and safe whatever you do. That’s how we make all our clothes, including a base layer women love.
We want to give you freedom of movement along with the feeling of being lightweight as you’re active.
Without further ado, our base layers for women have Omni-Wick™ moisture wicking technology. This technology enables wicking off excessive moisture including both rain and sweat. All particles of water evaporate super quick, leaving it no time to stick long enough to make you feel uncomfortable, wet, and cold.
Another technology we use in making women’s base layers is our Omni-Heat™ reflective technology. This thermal technology can pack some serious heat and it works based on the principles of your own body warmth. It’s not clothes that make you warm, it is your body; the clothes only keep that warmth.
Now, if the clothing is just thick but not insulated or thermal heat reflective, it’s either going to make you cold very fast, or it is going to make you sweat. Neither is good. With our base layers for women, you will be warm thanks to your own body, but you will not be sweaty. The material reflects your body warmth while at the same time literally lets you blow off steam.
Choosing the perfect base layers for women
Sometimes, with fashion brands, it seems that women only have two options: fashionable or functionally dressed.
At Columbia, we want you to express yourself however you see fit. Do you want to wear things that are always picture-perfect? We’ve got you. At the same time, these clothes can help you run errands or do sports while you experience being warm and dry. And it’s the same clothes! We respect your individual style and want you to be whoever you want.
To find the perfect piece of base layer for you, don’t settle for the first thing you see in any store. Compare options based on your needs. In our base layer women’s collection, you’ll find both tops and pants. Our base layer tops come in multiple colours and materials. You can get a skin tight fit or a looser fit for more breathability. Some of them also have thumb holes! Base layers are very popular with men, women, and kids.
As far as the pants are concerned, we have compression bottom baselayers and wool tights. They can be worn on their own or combined with an outer layer like a zip fleece vest. They’re also perfect for both everyday activities and sports.
Our sizes go from smaller, like XS to larger, like XL. There is a variety of colours and added benefits you can pick and choose from.
