21. LAYER 1 - BASE LAYER LAYER 1 - BASE LAYER

LAYER 1 CLOTHING KEEPS YOU BOTH COOL AND DRY BY TRANSPORTING MOISTURE AWAY FROM THE SKIN AND DISTRIBUTING IT ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE GARMENT, WHERE IT EITHER EVAPORATES OR IS PASSED ON TO THE NEXT LAYER.

Bodywear is the first or inner layer of clothing you wear. It is designed to be worn next to the skin as a moisture wicking base layer. For optimal performance and comfort, it should always be worn underneath your outer layers or by itself, regardless of weather conditions. Base layer garments come in a variety of fabrics with multiple purposes.
