Ridge Merino – Multi-Purpose Baselayer
Just because temperatures take a dive doesn’t mean your workout should. A baselayer is key for cool-weather outdoor activity.
This layer should be warm yet breathable and should transfer or “wick” perspiration away from your skin to keep you dry.
If moisture remains on the skin, it actually draws body heat away from you – a very dangerous proposition in freezing cold weather. This is what cotton does as it absorbs water, takes longer to dry, and usually leads to a generally clammy, disgusting feeling.
Ridge Merino baselayers are 100% Merino wool – and not only have the ability to wick moisture and dry quickly, but also trap air within the wool fibers to naturally regulate temperature – insulating when it’s cold and letting air escape when it gets warm.
Also, based on their structure, Merino fibers can’t hold onto the bacteria that cause body odor, so the wearer feels fresher longer.
Merino also provides UPF 50+ certified sun protection. All of this occurs naturally, without the use of chemicals to enhance performance. Sounds good to me!
UThermic Coldscreen – Sunscreen for the Cold
UThermic Coldscreen is 98% natural, cruelty and fragrant free, backed by strict clinical trials and pro athletes.
It is not only designed to combat the dry winter air by providing hydration to the skin but is able to help retain your naturally generated body heat to keep you warm for up to 4 hours while out doing the activities you love in the cold.
It enables anyone to get out there on those colder days for longer and to only focus on the activity at hand!
